The below comic strip was created in 2010 by the wonderful cartoonist, Erik Andresen. Almost everything in it is still true, except now we have 32 employees, we have TWO magnetic walls, plus TWO photo booths, and we have now held over 1.1 MILLION auctions!

EVERY week (on average) we receive around FOUR THOUSAND new consignments, and around one-third of those end up in bulk lots, around 1% end up in our "major" auctions and the other 2,600 or so go into our regular weekly auctions!

There is no one ANYONE in the known universe, who has auctioned as many movie posters as we have for more money. We truly are "The World's Number One Movie Poster Auction House", and we have been for 25 years!

How can we get all this done, week in and week out, 52 weeks a year? Because we have 32 wonderful employees, and the best ones have worked here from 10 to 17 years! Every day, week, month and year we are learning new ways to better auction posters (and to improve every aspect of our business and our website). We NEVER "rest on our laurels" as the world's foremost auctioneer of vintage movie paper.

Many of you have commented that just about every time you visit our site you find new improvements we have made, and every one of them is designed to make bidding in our auctions easier and more enjoyable, to create better ways for you to quickly and easily find what you are looking for, and to make it easier and less expensive for us to ship your purchases to you, and to stay in close contact every step of every transaction, and to provide true customer service on every transaction, whether you spend $5 or $5,000 (or any amount in-between)!

Working at is not for everyone, because we NEVER have any "down time" here at! As soon as we finish one set of auctions we are hard at work on the next set. Every one of our 32 employees make important contributions to making our auctions the absolute best run auctions there are, and they have to be "the best of the best" to maintain our standards (and somehow find ways to keep improving as well).
