eMoviePoster.com has a truly wonderful selection of 599 8" x 10" still auctions (312 singles, and 187 sets, containing 2 to 40 stills per set) at auction ending in five days at https://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/tag/xtype%253A8x10%2520still/13.html

Most of them were sent to theaters (to display in their lobbies) or to media outlets, like newspapers and magazines, so they could have high quality images for their promotional stories about upcoming movies and current stars!

Some of these are the work of famous studio photographers (such as Bert Six, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Eugene Robert Richee, Elmer Fryer, and others) and often they are credited on the back of the still.

Note that in the 1950s studios made unmarked re-strikes of these for television releases, and in the 1960s, a few dealers acquired original negatives and transparencies and they made and sold restrikes of some of these.

Many of these unmarked re-strikes are regularly sold on eBay and elsewhere as originals (either knowingly or unknowingly) and buyers are later greatly saddened when they find out the truth.

HOWEVER EVERY ONE OF THESE 599 STILLS (SINGLES AND SETS) IN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS ARE STUDIO ORIGINAL AND NOT RESTRIKES (and we guarantee that for life; see below)!

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell a restrike (or reissue) from an original, which is where it becomes such a giant plus to buy these from eMoviePoster.com auctions, for two reasons!

The first is that we have auctioned many hundreds of thousands of these stills over the past years (likely more than anyone alive!), and we are experts in telling originals from restrikes or reissues.

The second is our Lifetime Guarantee (which NO other auction offers) where we stand behind every item we auction forever! You can 100% trust that all of these stills are exactly what we say they are!

You will love looking at these, even if it is solely to "window shop". While they range from the 1910s to the 1980s, the bulk of them are from the "Golden Age of Hollywood", the 1930s and 1940s!

As of now (with just 5 days to go), many of these are at insanely low prices! Of course, many will get more bids, but some won't, and many will likely sell for VERY low prices, but YOU can't get those great deals if you aren't bidding, so why not look these over very soon?

Whether you are a long time still collector or new to collecting them, you absolutely should consider buying some or many of these because this truly IS a "once-in-a-lifetime" offering!

Or just go to https://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/tag/xtype%253A8x10%2520still/13.html  and "window shop" the many wonderful images!
