It has now been close to four years since we left eBay entirely and auction exclusively on our own site,, and it occurs to us that so much time has passed that a fair number of our current bidders may not know at all that we were once among the very top eBay sellers! A few days ago eBay added a "Lifetime Transaction Totals" page to sellers' My eBay pages, and here's what the one we have says about us:
Sales to date: $10,066,650.12
Transactions: 165331
First eBay Sale: 10/27/2001
 Now the above is all incorrect (Our sales on eBay were at least SEVENTEEN million dollars, we have well over 330,000 transactions, and we started selling there in late 1999), but even their numbers, are pretty impressive!

So for those of you who don't know our background, here it is:

About Our Business Since 1989, Bruce Hershenson has organized 18 major movie poster auctions (10 for Christie's auction house, 3 for Howard Lowery auction house, and 5 mega-auctions held on eBay in 2001-2004) with total sales of over 10 million dollars! Between 1989 and 1999 he sold over 30,000 vintage movie posters and lobby cards through sales catalogs with sales of over 4 million dollars. In 2000, after some trial sales in late 1999, Bruce opened on eBay, which over the next 8 years sold over 17 million dollars on that site, in over 330,000 transactions. In 2008, moved to its own site on the Internet, and to date has sold well over 330,000 items with total sales of over $13,000,000 (over $3.5 million in 2011 alone, in over 104,000 transactions!). Bruce has also published 42 full-color movie poster books that have combined sales of over 500,000 copies!

About Our Philosophy Having seen how many auction houses operate first hand, Bruce Hershenson started with the philosophy that auctions should be run with honesty and integrity.  That is why we are always as accurate as possible, have NO buyers premiums or reserves, ship orders as quickly as possible, endeavor to provide timely and friendly responses to customers, and provide our "no questions asked" return policy.  More so, these policies extend to EVERY SINGLE BUYER regardless of whether you spend a few dollars or many thousands.  When you buy from, you aren't "just another buyer"; you are always be treated the same as our most valued customers!   

About Our Auctions Every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, adds 200 to 1000 items to online auctions (2,000+ items per week). All the Tuesday and Thursday items begin around 7 PM CST (Sunday items begin at 3 PM CST), which means they close the following Tuesday, Thursday, or Sunday around the same time. If you go to our list of items each Tuesday and Thursday night PRIOR to 7 PM CST (or Sunday prior to 3 PM CST), you can view the current items just before they close (so you can make last minute bids), plus you can look at the items for the upcoming week (we add the next week's items just after the current items close). Each wee our three weekly sales combined contain around $60,000 of movie posters, lobby cards, and/or other movie paper, and EVERY ITEM starts at just $1, with NO RESERVE on any item, which means these have competitive bidding (where the final prices are set by two or more real bidders, not by you bidding against a reserve). Far too many auctions have sky-high reserves, which is why so many go unsold. Over 99% of OUR over 660,000 auction items have sold (the few that don't get a $1 bid are displayed on the walls of our 35,000 square foot warehouse!).
