What distinguishes OUR major auctions from other major auctions?
Only the lack of any reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and
unenhanced super-sized images! You will find an amazing "supermarket"
selection of great posters from all years, genres, and countries!
Details About These Items
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
KNOW THAT IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS ONLY
(Part I of our December Major Auction),
all of the one-sheets are linenbacked all must be shipped rolled in tubes for the actual cost of
sending your order (plus $3 for the packaging materials) for all customers (approximately $20 to
$30 for up to 3 linenbacked one-sheet-size posters).
NOTE THAT THESE ROUGH ESTIMATED RATES ARE FOR
ONE-SHEETS THAT ARE BACKED ONTO A STANDARD WEIGHT LINEN; IF YOU WIN LINEN POSTERS THAT ARE ON A HEAVIER WEIGHT OR A LIGHTER WEIGHT LINEN OR THAT
SHIP IN LONGER TUBES, THEY
MAY COST MORE OR LESS TO SHIP THAN THE ROUGH ESTIMATES, DEPENDING ON THE COMBINED WEIGHT OF THE POSTER(S). After winning, you need to request a shipping quote through our
customers: You must pay an additional 7.662% 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).
Do you need "signature required"?
UPS nor USPS automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the
signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $5.00 for UPS or $2.60 for USPS that
they charge for "signature required", and please realize that they will then NOT leave
the package at the door, and you may well have to go to the UPS or USPS facility yourself to
pick it up if you aren't there to meet the delivery person. 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 (unless your package has a dollar value over $300, in which case we will ALWAYS send it
with signature required, due to the massive rise in "porch thefts", unless you specifically tell us not to, and you will need to fully accept responsibility for the package if it is stolen from your porch or
You CAN usually combine shipment!
NOTE: These linenbacked one-sheets in Part I of our
December Major Auction are linenbacked and can NOT
be combined with any of
the unbacked items we auctioned over the past weeks or those that we are currently auctioning, because those contain NO linenbacked
They LIKELY CAN be combined with all of the
other linenbacked posters that are in Part II and Part III
(and the few linen posters in Part V), but they CAN'T be combined with the other items in
any of the non-linenbacked items in any of the other parts.
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 to have your purchases shipped until the next four weeks of auctions end (a total of up to twelve sets of auctions)
so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if
About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to
twelve 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 four 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).
DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS
UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE COST OF SHIPPING AS STATED ABOVE.
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 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.
Have you heard about our Pay and Hold
This lets non-U.S. buyers pay for their purchases from 8 consecutive weeks
(a total of 24 auctions and around 20,000+ items!), and we then send all your
purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click

Here is a chart
containing really roughly estimated shipping charges for up to 3
linenbacked on-sheets from this set of auctions
(note these are ESTIMATES only, and your actual shipping may
vary considerably, depending on where you live and the weight of each
(Note: Insured quotes are based on a $200 value; you pay $1.60 more
for each additional $100 of insurance)
Type of Shipping
Everywhere Else (inc Europe)
Priority Mail Int'l - Uninsured
Priority Mail Express Int'l - Uninsured
First Class* (under 4 lbs ONLY)
*First Class has a weight limit of 4 lbs AND a dimensional limit. Posters wider than 28 inches (or 71 cm) can
NOT be shipped via First Class. A single linenbacked one-sheet and shipping tube usually exceeds this weight limit and that is why we don't
provide estimates for First Class on linenbacked one-sheets.
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!
