Details About This Special All-Autograph Auction

Why are there 58 animation drawings at the start of this all signed auction?
     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 autographed items
     This is the ELEVENTH "all-signed" auction from eMoviePoster.com! It contains 891 signed 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).
A few
of the 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!

(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 auction!

5a001-5a058 SIMPSONS, FAMILY GUY, & KING OF THE HILL original animation drawings (these are NOT signed, as explained above)
5a059-5a087 incredible collection of signed letters and contracts from the Paul Kohner estate!

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.

About the condition
    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 stills
    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).

Payment Options

U.S. orders with flat rate shipping can quickly be completed via Credit/Debit Card or PayPal in our Checkout system. For U.S. customers who purchase items that require "actual shipping" (and for ALL Non-U.S. orders) we need to quote you the cost of shipping (a "shipping quote") after you request it, and you will do so (after the auctions end) through our Checkout system.
NEW! We have integrated most shipping quotes into our checkout (except for Pay and Hold orders because they are more complicated, but those are coming too) so you now can complete payment using our checkout (for both U.S. and non-U.S. orders, but for now, only if you pay with credit card or PayPal).
    Please note that we are still developing this checkout system, and we will continue to make further improvements to it, and all aspects of our business, and we will alert you whenever we make such improvements. If you run into any sort of problem requesting your quotes or paying for your order after you receive your quotes, please e-mail Phillip right away so we can get it addressed.

     If your order requires a shipping quote and you have already received your quote, you may pay in our Checkout (unless your order is "Pay and Hold" which we are working to account for). You should only pay via PayPal manually if you are Pay and Hold (to "mail@emovieposter.com"), but know that PayPal has many glitches, and if you do that, you need to e-mail us separately stating that you completed payment Learn More Here are step-by-step instructions if you need help paying manually with PayPal.

We also accept all major credit cards and PayPal in our Checkout or, if you want to pay another way, you can pay via phone at +1 (417) 256-9616 during business hours (Monday to Friday, 9 AM CST to 5 PM CST except from 12 to 1 when we take lunch), via e-mail, or via fax at +1 (417) 257-6948.

You can also send a check or money order (if you do, enclose your address and details about what you purchased) to:
Bruce Hershenson
Attn: Payments
P.O. Box 874
West Plains, MO 65775

If it is your best payment option, you can pay by 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 $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.
     Missouri 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. 

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 HERE to learn more (if you are not one of the hundreds of our non-U.S. buyers who are already part of this program)

Here is a chart containing estimated shipping charges for up to 3 "flat" OR "rolled" items from this week's auctions
These are ESTIMATES only, and your actual shipping may be more or less than these estimates.
Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each $100 of insurance.

     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.)!

You Can Add More to Your Order
In addition to our current auctions, we offer many other non-auction items. Please note that the items in this week's auction will be sent in either flat packages or rolled in tubes, so you can add any item that can also be sent in either flat packages or rolled in tubes for little or no additional shipping costs (NOTE: if we can add it to your package without raising the cost of shipping, then we will do so with no added shipping charge, but if it raises the cost then you will need to pay the difference). We have noted below whether the items can be shipped rolled or not.
