About This Special All-Autograph Auction
Why are there 58 animation drawings at the start of this all
We were consigned an excellent group of 58
animation drawings from The Simpsons, Family Guy, and King of the Hill. In the past, we sold
these drawings in our "all animation" auction, but we don't know how long it will be until our
next one, so we put them at the start of this auction. But everything following them are items
of all types that are personally signed (autographed).
About this special auction of 891
This is the ELEVENTH
"all-signed" auction from eMoviePoster.com! It contains
items of all types, covering not only all sorts of movies, but also from celebrities in politics,
sports, and others! We can't imagine anyone who has the slightest interest in
autographed items not finding several items to bid on, and more likely, you may
find that there are so many items of interest to you that it is hard to decide
which ones you most want to pursue.
About the authenticity of the 891
autographed items being offered
A high percentage of the autographed items come to us from
several different collectors/dealers who spent decades acquiring their
autographs. We have put a paragraph (or sentence) on each
auction, giving the history of how the consignor obtained the autograph (to
whatever degree we know).
IN EVERY CASE, WE HAVE GIVEN ALL OF THE INFORMATION WE KNOW ABOUT WHERE THE
AUTOGRAPH WAS OBTAINED IN THE AUCTION DESCRIPTION FOR EACH INDIVIDUAL ITEM.
items come with a "Certificate of Authenticity", and we have
provided an image of those, and identified the name of the issuer of that
certificate. Please read over each auction description carefully, so you will
know all we know about the provenance of that item.
WE DID NOT INCLUDE ANY ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION IF
WE HAD A DOUBT AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THE AUTOGRAPH IS AUTHENTIC! But we strongly suggest
that all bidders do whatever research they want to do about the autographs
BEFORE placing bids (such as comparing the signatures to other known
signatures found on the Internet).
But we also know how hard it is to be certain of an autograph's
authenticity when you are not seeing the item in person. So, to make certain
that we only have satisfied buyers, we will
give anyone who purchases any of these a 30 day return privilege (from the
date the auction closes) on any of these autographed items, and of
course, that gives every buyer plenty of time to be 100% certain that they
have purchased a genuine autograph!
Of course, we don't want people returning items because
they "changed their minds", and it is vital that any returned items must be
returned safely (ideally in the same packing) and received in the exact same
condition it was sent, and the return offer will expire exactly 30 days after
the auction closes (because we must pay our consignors, and there will be no exceptions).
Approximately two thirds of the items offered are vintage
items, and approximately one third of the items are later reproductions (but
some of the reproductions date from the 1970s), and WE ALWAYS CLEARLY
IDENTIFY WHICH IS WHICH.
But, IN EVERY CASE, every one of these items was personally signed
by the person listed! We know they make wonderful special gifts to those
friends or family who you know really like a specific celebrity!
HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION:
(to better help you find the types of items that interest you)
NOTE: EVERY item in this auction has an
authentic signature on it which was hand signed onto that item by the
celebrity (approximately one third of the items are reproductions which the celebrities signed,
but those are clearly marked, and all items that are not marked "REPRODUCTION"
are original vintage items). THIS IS A REALLY REMARKABLE OFFERING, and if you have the
slightest interest in autographed items, then you won't want to miss this

About the shipping of items in this set of auctions
Due to the different types of packages the items in this
auction ship in, some items will ship in flat packages for $7, $11, or $15 to the U.S., some items will
ship rolled in tubes for $11 to the U.S., and some will be the "actual cost of shipping" even for those
in the U.S. We have noted in the above chart and on each individual item's
auction page how they will be shipped. We will be sure to combine items into a
single package whenever possible, but realize if you purchase multiple types
of U.S. shipping items, you will be charged the highest rate.
We give a detailed overall condition grade ("fine", "very good to fine", "very good", "good to very good", and only a few which are less than "good to very good") along with more details about the condition described in words (where we thought additional details were needed, because the defects were hard to see). We felt this would help bidders identify items they want to bid on more easily. Of course, we could not describe every single defect, so 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
still for minor defects that we did NOT describe.
About surface scuffs and creasing on
As anyone who looks at old photos knows, twenty to eighty year old photos are almost certain to pick up faint scuffs and creases in the surface emulsion of the photo. Vintage stills are the same way. But when these creases and scuffs are light, you can't see them when you look directly at the still from straight on, but you CAN see them when you tilt the still to the light. We don't consider this a major defect, because we don't know anyone who displays their stills tilted to the light. So if a still has minor scuffs and creases that are not very visible when it is viewed straight on, we still grade it as "very good or very good to fine" (or a higher grade). The only exception to this is if there are scuffs and creases throughout the entire still. Then we grade it as "lesser" (or a lower grade), even if the scuffs and creases are not visible when looked at straight on. We DO feel most collectors can accept minor surface scuffs and creases that can hardly be seen from straight on and are relatively minor. If you disagree, you probably should think long and hard before bidding on the stills that we grade as "lesser", or "very good or very good to fine" (but you still likely will be happy with the stills we grade as "fine or better", because we won't give a still those grades if there are scuffs in the surface emulsion that are at all visible when the still is viewed head-on).
U.S. Shipping Details
U.S. buyers need to enclose $7, $11, or $15 shipping (which includes full insurance) OR the actual cost of U.S. shipping
(it is noted on each item's auction page and in the chart above)! NOTE: Our $7, $11, or
$15 flat rate shipping is good for two weeks. If you haven't paid within two weeks (or if your
order is "actual cost"), you will then be quoted the actual cost of shipping
when you request it.
customers: You must pay an additional 7.162% sales tax on your
purchases. If your order is sent within the state of Missouri, we MUST
collect this tax (if it is shipped to another state, we do not collect the tax).
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 $3.00 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!
NOTE: These Thursday items ship in different types of packages so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 2 weeks worth of
purchases. If you win items over a span of more than 14 days, you will then be charged the
actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.

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 five sets of auctions end (a total of six 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 six 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 $7, $11, $15, or ACTUAL COST U.S. SHIPPING (depending on
which item(s) you purchase)!
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 $3, for both the best
packaging materials you have ever seen and a separate printed invoice mailed to you. 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.
Have you heard about our Pay and Hold Program?
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 4 consecutive weeks (a total of 12
auctions and around 8,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you
LOTS of money! Click

already part of this program)

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 United States?
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 $3 outside the U.S.)!
