Because we are also collectors, we know it is important to only offer original vintage movie paper, so we examine everything we are consigned very closely for originality, and we return any items to our consignors that we have even the slightest doubt about. This means that we likely sometimes return originals to our consignors because of our ultra-high standards!

Because of our confidence in what we auction, we offer a full no questions asked return policy to all buyers on every item we sell, so you do not have to "gamble" hoping we are honest, as you need to do with many auction houses or sellers unknown to you. Of course, once you make a purchase, you will see that we do what we say and truly deal with all of our customers 100% honestly.

On those rare occasions where we are contacted by a bidder who believes something we are offering is not original, we immediately re-examine the poster and do research (by contacting other poster experts and, when possible, by comparing that poster to another we have on hand). If we determine it is possibly a reproduction, we cancel the auction and notify the bidders that it was canceled (or if we discovered it was a reproduction after the auction - even years after the auction - we will contact the buyer and offer to take it back for a full refund). We documented the lengths we go to make certain we refund anyone we may have innocently wronged (even for tiny amounts of money) in one of our cartoon strips at

You may be thinking, "but I see that you auctioned reproduction stills, commercial posters, etc". We only do this in certain, special circumstances and then, only with full disclosure of exactly what those items are and when and by who they were created (if we can discover that). For example, we auctioned many hundreds of reproduction 8" x 10" stills ONLY because they were personally signed by the star pictured (the signatures themselves were authentic, and only the stills were reproductions). In this circumstance it makes sense to auction these "reproductions". We've also auctioned S2 re-creations which are licensed reproductions made from the original printing plates, but those are printed on different paper made to be sold to the collector's market in the own right and are clearly described as to what they are.
