We have always been proud to say that we have sold movie paper to over 37,500 different collectors (far more than any other dealer or auction house), and we have always used that information in our advertising (of course updating it regularly, as we sell to more and more collectors).

But we have never before shared an exact breakdown of EXACTLY how those 37,500 collectors are distributed over the globe, and we are glad to do so now, and in this club (but please be aware that this information is the property of, and that it, and the image below, is not to be re-distributed in any form on the Internet or otherwise without express written permission of

WE HAVE SOLD TO COLLECTORS IN 75 COUNTRIES IN ALL (and not surprisingly, since we are a U.S. based country and we communicate in English and auction a larger percentage of English language movie paper, we have sold far more to U.S. collectors (31,141) and to those in English speaking countries (Great Britain, Northern Ireland, Canada, and Australia).

But we have also sold to around 2,000 collectors in non-English speaking countries! See the below "pie chart" which gives an exact breakdown by each country.

And since I imagine that some of you reading this are in the 45 "other" countries, here is a breakdown of how many collectors we have from each of those:

Now of course, aside from providing interesting information, this chart also shows just how much room there is for our hobby to grow!  We have only sold to four Chinese collectors and one from India, out of those billions of people! And there is no reason many of the other countries on this chart could not eventually have a massive expansion of the number of collectors from them as well. I intend to update this chart once a year, so we can all see what trends have developed over the previous year!
