We recently observed the following completely unsolicited exchange on an online movie poster forum. One member posted this:

"Does anyone use eBay for selling and if so what is your preferred settings for the auction? I don't believe that starting your auction at .99 is logical. I would rather do the 'buy now' or start the auction at a percentage of the value of the item."

Within minutes, another member posted the following response:

"I was selling on eBay got too hard and time draining - i now send all my posters to Bruce at when i want to sell now - after fees you still get a great price on average without all the work. Quite often a lot more than you would get on eBay. Highly recommend you look into it."

We KNOW for an absolute certainty that the above is true of a high percentage of collectors, because we have over 1,700 consignors, and a healthy percentage of those are collectors who USED to sell on eBay, but who quit for exactly the reasons the above person wrote on that forum.

In addition, a very high percentage of DEALERS now use our service as well. Some send us their slow-moving inventory, some send us their high end items where they know we will reach a far wider audience than they could on eBay, and some send all their inventory when they are looking to retire or switch businesses.

In the past two years, two of the best known dealers (both of whom have been in the hobby for decades), Dwight Cleveland and Dominique Besson, decided to consign HUGE portions of their inventories to us, even though they could have sold the items themselves, or consigned them to other auctions.

In addition, we were consigned the entire estates of half a dozen very long term collectors who passed away during those two years. Those collectors left instructions with their heirs to have their collections auctioned through us, both because they knew we would get their heirs the most money overall, but also because, even more importantly, they knew that we would be 100% honest in the auctioning of their collections (especially because, as is often the case, the heirs knew very little about the hobby).

And their trust was not misplaced in the slightest! We carefully inventory every single item, and auction everything, down to the last item, and the consignors are treated 100% honestly in every possible way.

It is not just very long time collectors who use our services. The past few years has seen two of the very foremost collectors of "newer" posters, Holiday Russell and Mel Hutson, turn to when they decided it was time to sell a large portion of their collections!

Way back in 2011 we commissioned noted cartoonist Erik Andressen to create the below humorous comic strip that shows dealers how much better they could do consigning to us rather than doing it themselves on eBay. Given eBay's continued implosion, it is even MORE true today than it was back then!

If YOU have items you would like to turn into cash, please join the over 1,700 others who have consigned to us. Whether you have a small number of items or a truckload, or whether you are a recent collector or have collected for decades, and whether you are solely a collector, or solely a dealer or both, we are sure you will find that (as the forum member said), "after fees you still get a great price on average without all the work. Quite often a lot more than you would get on eBay"!
