Special Notes About The Items in This Week's Sunday Auctions
About "Special" Posters
We regularly receive posters from hundreds of
consignors, and the vast majority of them are standard movie poster sizes,
and we gather those sizes together, and sell them in individual weeks (each
week, posters of a different size). But we also receive a few posters now
and then which are NOT standard movie poster sizes, and we also
occasionally receive a few posters that are not even movie posters (but
those we auction in a separate auction of "special non-movie posters")!
Basically, this week we have gathered together 473 of these "special"
posters, and are auctioning them all at one time. We urge you to look them
all over very carefully, or they cover a HUGE range of years, sizes, and
subjects and some are likely extremely rare, and we guarantee you that the
vast majority of them will have images that are new to you! Included
are a relatively small number of commercial posters (posters sold directly
to the public when the movie was created), video posters, and reproduction
posters (the only time we ever sell reproductions is in this particular
auction). We have listed the commercial, video, and repro posters
together at the end of the auction, and clearly identified them. The
"special" posters that come before them are ones that were created and
distributed to theaters (unless marked otherwise).
About the Condition
Note that we give a detailed overall condition grade to every item we sell ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", "good", and "fair", with only a few graded "poor") along with more details about the condition described in words (but pretty much only if they are defects that CAN'T be seen in our super-sized images, or if the item is especially valuable). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we still strongly recommend that you look at our super-sized image to see the extent of the defects that we describe and to examine the
item for minor defects that we did NOT
item is in less than very good condition, should you not bid on it? Of course not, as long as you are accepting of the defects the
item has! The item that is graded "very good", but has as many minor defects as is allowed under the "very good" definition is only in SLIGHTLY better condition than the best of the "good to very good" items. So please take the time to look at the larger images of items that interest you, and see if the defects are the sort that you can "live with", or are willing to restore. Some of these items are EXTREMELY rare, and it may be years before you see them offered again!
We accept all major credit cards, either directly over the phone
at 417-256-9616 during our regular business hours which are Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5
PM CST except between 12 and 1 when we take lunch, or you can e-mail us
payment details, and there are still a few people who fax us!
If you like to pay via Paypal (our PayPal e-mail is "email@example.com"),
that is fine, but know that PayPal has many glitches, and you should
ABSOLUTELY e-mail us separately when you send us a PayPal payment!
You can send a check
or money order
(if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775
If it is your
best payment option, you can pay by Western Union
(unlike SOME auction
sites, we are not prejudiced against Western Union!). But please don't send cash (as we can't be
responsible for lost cash)!
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $9 shipping (which includes full insurance)!
IMPORTANT: THE $9 SHIPPING DOES NOT APPLY TO THE BULK LOTS WE ARE SELLING
that we have our usual standard shipping on all of the "regular" Sunday
items, but the bulk lots have stated shipping that is far higher (because
they are so heavy and/or bulky). You can combine as many of the regular
items as you want and pay a single shipping charge, but the bulk lots can
NOT be combined with the other items, because they are completely
packaged by themselves.
Will your order be
shipped to you by UPS?
UPS does NOT automatically require a signature
to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will
need to pay the extra $2.50 UPS charges for "signature required" Delivery
Confirmation, and please realize that they will then NOT leave the
package, and you may well have to go to the UPS facility yourself to pick it
up. But if you prefer this, that is fine, and if you have any other
special requirements, please tell us when you are paying for your order.
IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, THEN YOUR PACKAGE
WILL BE SENT WITHOUT SIGNATURE REQUIRED!
You CAN usually combine shipment!
Sunday items will
need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
can NOT be
combined with any of our current or recent
auctions because we never combine rolled items with "flat" items
because of the great chance of damage to the "flat" items. We also
never combine unbacked items with backed items because of the great chance
of damage to the non-backed items.
Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single
set of Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Sunday auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items, but we also allow you to wait until
the next three sets of auctions end (a total of four sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions
(if possible), and that means there
is a chance you could combine items from up to four of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package). We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do, but we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and
FULL INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE $9 U.S. SHIPPING!
Non-U.S. Shipping Details
Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order
(you can choose whatever method you prefer, but know that the U.S. Post
Office has eliminated Surface Mail, so we can only send via Express or
Airmail), plus $2 for the best packaging materials you have ever seen.
All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the package sent insured or
uninsured at the time they pay for their order.
NOTE ABOUT THE SHIPPING OF THE BULK LOTS WE ARE SELLING
that, as usual, we allow you to combine all of the "regular" Sunday items,
but the bulk lots can't be combined, and MUST be sent by themselves.
Also note that the shipping charge for any of the bulk lots outside of the
U.S. will be the actual cost of shipping, and, of course, overseas shipping
is almost always much more than U.S. shipping, so PLEASE ONLY BID ON ANY
OF THE BULK LOTS IF YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY THE SUBSTANTIAL ACTUAL COST OF

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please bear these
approximate shipping cost in mind BEFORE you place a bid (if
you live outside the U.S.). The vast majority of our customers want a very
securely packed tube, and will pay the extra shipping cost involved (and of
course, it goes to the Post Office or UPS, and not us!). Please do not ask
us to pack less securely, as that would likely result in a damaged order.
Some sellers are sending by Ground UPS to Canada, but that incurs large
"brokerage fees", so we do not recommend it. Note that there are also
some sellers sending non-U.S. packages via a "Letter" rate, but of course
this is not legal, and we can not do this. We have outlined the
possibilities for sending non-U.S. packages above, so please read that
carefully, BEFORE placing a bid!
Do you have a friend or relative who lives in the
Some of our customers either
visit the U.S. regularly, or have friends or relatives within the U.S., and
often those customers have us send their orders to a U.S. address, and then
they transport the posters from there. THIS CAN SAVE YOU A GREAT DEAL ON
SHIPPING! This is fine with us, but realize that you still need to let
us know within one week of receipt if you want to return anything, so don't
use this method unless you are certain you will want to keep your purchases.
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING (the
actual cost of shipping plus $2 outside the U.S.)!
