Details About These Tuesday Items

Should unfolded half-sheets or inserts sell for a major premium over folded ones?
     For years we have been arguing that the above should be true, and it seems that many collectors are beginning to agree with me! Imagine if baseball cards could be bought in two ways. You could either get them folded in half twice (resulting in one horizontal and one vertical fold), or get them unfolded. Would not the unfolded ones sell for FAR more in the collector's market than the folded ones? We can't see the difference between this and half-sheets & inserts. It is VERY difficult to find unfolded half-sheets & inserts, but they ARE out there, and we believe we will continue to see their price rise far above that of a folded version (note that most post-1970 half-sheets & inserts were NOT folded, so they are pretty much only found unfolded, and therefore this does not apply to half-sheets & inserts from this time period).  NOTE THAT THE HALF-SHEETS & INSERTS THAT WE ARE CURRENTLY OFFERING INCLUDE A LARGE NUMBER OF UNFOLDED ONES! Around 30% of the 850 half-sheets & inserts have never been folded, and 124 of those 30% are from before 1970, which are the titles you would not expect to find unfolded!  This is a very rare opportunity to purchase unfolded older half-sheets & inserts!

About the originality and rarity of these half-sheets & inserts
     Half-sheets & inserts from the 1960s on are far more rare than the corresponding one-sheets (with the exception of certain half-sheets & inserts which have been reproduced; see below). In the last few years, many savvy collectors have begun to seek out half-sheets & inserts, realizing their far greater rarity, and in some cases, are paying more for them than for the corresponding one-sheets! We expect this trend to continue in the coming years!
In recent years a fair number of "suspect" inserts of certain top titles of the 1970s have been offered in the collector's market (there are also a few "suspect" half-sheets). We believe (as do most major dealers) that these are surely counterfeits. They can be distinguished from genuine inserts and half-sheets by their extra glossy front and back, and their "whiter-than-white" appearance.  ALL OF THE HALF-SHEETS & INSERTS WE ARE SELLING THIS WEEK ARE 100% GENUINE AND EITHER THEATER-USED OR WERE PRINTED TO BE USED IN THEATERS, BUT WERE FOUND IN POSTER EXCHANGES PRIOR TO GOING TO A THEATER!

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 poster for minor defects that we did NOT describe.

    If a poster 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 poster 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!

U.S. Shipping Details

U.S. buyers need to enclose $12 shipping (which includes full insurance), no matter how many items you purchase from this set of auctions! NOTE: Our $12 flat rate shipping is good for three weeks. If you haven't paid within three weeks after your oldest unshipped purchase, you will then be quoted the actual cost of shipping when you request it. Learn the exact details of flat rate shipping

     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 Tuesday items need to be sent rolled in tubes so...
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COMBINING: Flat rate shipping is good for 3 weeks worth of purchases (assuming all the items fit into a single package; Learn More About Combining). If you win items over a span of more than 21 days, you will then be charged the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packing materials.

*they can be combined with these auctions:

Thursday July 3rd rolled one-sheets
Thursday July 10th rolled "special" posters
Thursday July 17th rolled items in July Major Auction Part III
Sunday July 20th rolled items in July Major Auction Part IV
Sunday July 22nd rolled non-U.S. posters
Thursday July 24th rolled one-sheets

*they must be sent separately from these auctions for an additional shipping charge:

Sunday July 6th pressbooks and presskits
Tuesday July 8th 3sheets, 6sheets, Argentinean, and more
Sunday July 13th linen 1sheets in July Major Auction Part I
Tuesday July 15th linen non-1sheets in July Major Auction Part II
Thursday July 17th backed, flat, or odd shaped items in July Major Auction Part III
Sunday July 20th flat items in July Major Auction Part IV
Sunday July 27th groups of 2 or more 8" x 10" stills from the same title
Tuesday July 29th folded non-U.S. posters & non-U.S. LCs & stills
Thursday July 31st complete and incomplete lobby card sets
Sunday August 3rd bulk lots (some may be combine-able, and if safe to do, we will do so)

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 (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow you to wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible; see Learn More About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to nine of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package, but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in a single package or tube, and if you end up with several packages, you will need to pay that many shipping charges; Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our auctions have items that ship in tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of course, there are others who charge far more!), but none of the ones with lower rates offer the same generous flat rate shipping we do, and 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).


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 6 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 15,000+ 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 items from this set of  auctions. NOTE: These are ESTIMATES only; actual shipping may cost more or less.
Insurance will increase the cost of shipping by approximately $1.60 for each $100 of insurance.

Type of Shipping Canada/Mexico Australian/Asia/Japan Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured

$33.97 / $39.99

$48.36 $49.72
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured $45.27 / $50.48 $63.59 $58.20

First Class (under 4 lbs ONLY)

$21.32 / $26.31 $29.73 $29.73

     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.


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 set of auctions will be sent rolled in tubes, so you can add any Fixed Price item(s) that can also be sent 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 OR if it requires additional packages, then you will need to pay the difference). We have noted below whether items ship rolled, flat, or both.
