Title: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Dread_Pirate_Mel on November 27, 2010, 11:50:45 PM
I keep losing track of all the auctions and other movie poster events, so I put together this public "Movie Poster Events" Google Calendar:

Here is the link.  (http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=moviepostercollectors%40gmail.com&ctz=America/New_York)

The full address is:

http://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=moviepostercollectors%40gmail.com&ctz=America/New_York  

This is a public calendar.  I'll try to update it regularly and I can authorize others to update it as well.  I've put the regular auctions in and also some special events - the upcoming Christie's auction, Coys, Emovie and Heritage signature auctions, etc

Please post in this thread if you think something should be added.

Check your times. You have our Tuesday auctions ending at 7 PM, which they do in CST, but you have Sunday ending at 4 PM, which they do, but in EST!

How about fixing that, and then making them all have a time zone included (I would guess EST would be the one most people would know).

But nicely done!

OK fixed all times to EST and added more detailed descriptions - click the event to see the description.  Unfortunately, there is no option to allow multiple time zones in the public calendar. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/04/03/AR2010040304956.html)

Mel.. very good job, but I wold make an addition to the calendar

I think that some logos should be included, and most especially the MPB logo. I also suggest that all logos be no more than 3 pixels in height, but that the MPB logog should be 150 pixels in height & 350 in width.. Get to it.. now!!

Dominic Winter in UK is having a relatively small auction  (http://www.dominicwinter.co.uk/catcal/S290/P12.html#145012) of movie posters on Thursday 16 December 2010 commencing at 11.00am local time.

Some of the stuff is decent, like the printers proof quad for Back to the Future:

The Jaws 2 sunset teaser folded one sheet (estimate £150-180) sold for £95... I didn't have any condition reports on any of these which might have helped!

Will stop now unless anything interesting happens, just though some people might be interested :P
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar

I'm outta here ;D

Post by: Dread_Pirate_Mel on January 06, 2011, 08:00:04 AM
Thanks for all the updates.  That's about what the Goldfinger sold for at Heritage's last auction.  The BFI re-release for Italian Job is ridiculous.  It's a cool poster but way overpriced for a recent re-release.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: agentprovocateur on January 06, 2011, 10:05:07 AM
Nay worries, just happened to notice it was on and had a look at the live feed/sound type thing... wasn't sure about giving a running commentary but thought it might amuse.

Regarding the re-release Italian Job quad, yeah probably too high for a recent poster (although they seem quite rare), unless someone bought one for around £10 when they were first available ;)

Harry, go to:

http://www.cameo-auctioneers.co.uk/film-posters-auction-department (http://www.cameo-auctioneers.co.uk/film-posters-auction-department)

Then click on 'the-sale-room.com' logo on the right of the page. You should get this page then:

Click the 'Watch Live' button and it should bring up all the lots, you can click on any one you want and should get the 'sold' price'.

Let me know if it works!

Post by: Harry Caul on January 06, 2011, 10:50:05 AM
Yup, worked like a charm.  Thanks... but unfortunately I didn't win anything.  Not much action though... I put in low bids and I was usually the 2nd high bidder. 

Someone got a FOH lobby sets for Dance of the Vampires and The Ipcress File for quite cheap!  Same goes for many of the bond posters...

Amazing, you just never know with auctions, I do have DOTV set. I wish I'd bid on the Ipcress File set though, but I fell out with Cameo due to their incompetence, so don't tend to look at their auctions.

You know. Like a place out of town people actually want to go to. Columbus? Really? All they have there is NCAA cheaters.

Old actors that no one has heard from in years trying to make a few bucks selling autographed pictures...  I understand people need to make a living, but it's just not my scene.  I attended one of those in LA a few years ago with Jeannie (yeah, the Jeannie) and left with suicidal thoughts.

LOL  You should go to comic cons.  It the exact same situation except with washed up wrestlers added for good measure.  Oh, if Lou Ferrigno isn't there charging people for allowing them to be in his presence, then it's not an official convention

Ive never been to a poster or comic convention but I have been to quite a few sports memorabilia shows and most of them were pretty cool.

I have gotten autographs from such all time greats as Jim Brown, Barry Sanders, Eric Dickerson, Gale Sayers, and Gordie Howe.  ;D

For some reason I thought maybe movie shows would also be cool but I guess not...Nevermind then...Ohio is perfect.

Don't dis Ohio...you don't know what you are talking about.

Columbus is interesting, however.  Should be in Indianapolis...that place is the 'meeting/convention' capital of the country.
I think Columbus is just where the organizers live, plain and simple...no reason other than that.

Obviously you've never been to Cinevent but will make up your mind it sucks even before you go.  Your loss.  Cinevent is a film festival.  Not a Comic Con, autograph session, or some other terrible BS event.  It a great weekend of classic films and it just so happens that there are a lot of poster and film dealers who go to buy and sell.  The Last Moving Picture Company also has an auction that weekend, but seeing as most of the dealers don't stock much post 1970 or have any Alamo crap, you'll probably not be interested in what they have at their booths.

Dominic's Film & Entertainment auction (http://www.dominicwinter.co.uk/catcal/S303/P14.html) on June 16 at 11am UK time:

Some original movie poster artwork being sold:
   
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, dir. Steven Spielberg, 1984, starring Harrison Ford and Kate Capshaw, original finished artwork [by Mike Vaughan, unsigned], pen and ink and watercolour on board with printed legend at foot and lettered acetate overlay, the whole tipped on to board, 33 x 22 ins (84 x 56 cm)  A very fine and unique piece of original artwork for the second film featuring the iconic adventurer. This artwork would seem to have only been used for the Australian one-sheet poster (see preceeding lot) and shows Indiana Jones with machete and whip against a large plain circular background within an action-packed surrounding border.

(http://www.dominicwinter.co.uk/illustrations/H295.jpg)

A View to a Kill, dir. John Glen, 1985, starring Roger Moore and Tanya Roberts, original concept artwork for an apparently unused one-sheet poster design, possibly by Mike Vaughan, pen and ink with watercolour and acrylic, printed lettering at head and foot of board, 32 x 22.5 ins (81 x 57 cm), very fine. This artwork is most similar in overall design to the artwork of Dan Gouzee used for the US one-sheet poster. However, like the British one-sheet poster with artwork by Vic Fair, James Bond wears a white tuxedo and the printed titles are centred at the head and foot. As in the Dan Gouzee poster Roger Moore stands precariously high above the Golden Gate Bridge, but here Tanya Roberts clings to his legs while trying not to slip off with one foot dangling into the letterpress beneath. Christopher Walken is closing in with a stick of dynamite from the left while Grace Jones is leaping in from a spaceship above two other approaching attackers behind Roger Moore's back. A marvellous and dynamic piece of original and unique James Bond artwork.

Speaking of buyers premiums, this one is pretty classic from the auction mentioned above:

"A buyer's premium of 17.5% of the hammer price is payable by the buyers of all lots, except those lots asterisked, in which case the buyer's permium is 20.56%."

How many of them have the asterisk, you might ask?  Every item except one.

Interestingly enough, he did "stake his reputation" (his words) on the MUMMY 1sh being authentic in the episode.  The poster sold for 200K and Joe M said that it was a record setting price.  What record would that be?  Maybe a record price for an item in one of their auctions?

  Hey Mel,

  Just wondering how big of a deal it would be to have active links on your calender.  Currently it pulls up a map and gives an email address, but it would be way cool if you clicked on the auction and went straight to the website.  Of course, as a a web caveman, I have no idea how hard that might be.

"Reginald Jeeves: Foreign travel often liberates emotions best kept in check, sir, and the air of North America is notoriously stimulating in this regard, as witness the regrettable behaviour of its inhabitants in 1776.
Bertie Wooster: What happened in 1776, Jeeves?

Thanks for the invite - I'll have to take you up on that.

By the way, you London APF chappies should form a club and meet on a regular basis.  We're too spread out in the US.  Of course, a few scuffles will occur, but that's part of the fun :)

Bruce, please stop posting irrelevant and barely-disguised attacks on Heritage.  My post had absolutely nothing to do with Emovie or Heritage, yet you responded with an obvious dig at your primary competitor.  Having received 100 of so posters from both Heritage and Emovie, I can "testify" that both companies post very accurate images of the posters for sale.  If they didn't, I - and everybody else - would stop buying from one or both of them.  I second Richard's comments on this subject posted on MOPO, (http://www.mail-archive.com/mopo-l@listserv.american.edu/msg50167.html) which others may want to read.

Mel, please stop posting links to ongoing auctions.  We all work very hard to uncover the best of deals and several people, myself included, already found this auction.  All you accomplish by posting this information is to ensure that the people with unlimited budgets will win what they want and won't have to do any work -- nothing will fall through the cracks.  And if any of us who were planning on bidding do in fact win something, you have almost guaranteed that we'll pay more than we would have -- that is real dollars you are taking out of our pockets.  I assume if there were posters in this auction that you were planning to bid on that you wouldn't have posted it.   eyeroll

You are lambasting Bruce for doing something over and over, even though people have expressed discontent with it.  Maybe you should heed some of your own advice...

"Bruce, please stop posting irrelevant and barely-disguised attacks on Heritage."

Mel, I made no attack on Heritage or anyone. Re-read what I wrote. You remind me of the man being shown a set of inkblots, and interpreting them all as pictures of people having sex. When the tester announces that the man is clearly obsessed with sex, he says, "Me? You're the one with the collection of dirty pictures."

You find attacks everywhere you turn. I guess that goes with being a lawyer.

Zorba, I have no idea why  you would think that just because someone is a dealer that they are also not a collector. I've been collecting movie posters for more than 40 years (I still have some posters I bought 44 years ago), my collection is enormous (probably many multiples in size of your own) and there's a good chance I spend more money on an annualized basis than most people on this forum or any other.

when Mel "outed" this auction, he certainly outed posters I have on my want list

BUT I DON'T CARE.

I'll win or I'l lose and no one will hear a whiney peep out of me if I win nothing

thinking that dealers are not overall the biggest & most advanced collectors is pure foolishness

but I'll go further - simply said, the fact that this thread exists exemplifies the belief that the forum owners believe this thread is needed. End of story.

Paul.. I could care less what I have to pay for something if I want it and if the price meets my own criteria. Similarly if I lose such an item because someone will pay more than I will - I DON'T CARE.

that's the way it is. I am not a cheapskate and I'm not going to get bent out of shape if I never get a Blue Dahlia 1sh for my collection. If I'm bidding on one, I'll give it the old "College try". If I lose, my emotions will not be any worse for wear.

I am not sure what the cry babies reference is? I am not crying about it and i am not being cheap.

I was picking up on the logic of paying more than you need to and not caring about it. I guess i have other bills and mortgages to pay and therefore will always look to get the best value I can.

Paul.. if I'm willing to pay the price - I don't care about the money. It's a simple equation:
item for sale+value to me+value to other bidder=final price paid

Collecting used to be about getting out there and finding those nuggets, its still possible, but a lot harder since the advent of the internet

and concerning the statement above.. are you serious? collecting has become 10x easier since the internet. That's why stores are closing & conventions are dying as well as why for sale catalogs & advertised lists are also disappearing.

I just looked into setting up a poll.  I may still do it, but there is no way to make it public and there is no way to limit it to registered members.  To all -- am I missing something here?  Are those options possible?


One day someone may post an auction that I don't know about & I'll get that damed Farewell My Love 1944 Quad I'm looking for (because I'll pay the price..!)

So what you are saying is you want other people to find your poster for you and that you'll pay any price necessary to win it... how exactly is my 'lazy and rich' comment off again?

Harry.. you'll have to get all 283 members to vote
you can't do it

second, I don' tknow how an intelligent person like yourself gets to the above conclusion from my statements. Also, I didn't say in any post that "I'll pay any price". What I did say is I'll pay the price that I will pay, or I won't win (sic)

Personally, I want to see as many auctions as possible, and I would be happy to forward any I find.

Of course, my collecting habits don't match most of the folks here, so we are not likely to be competing for most items.

Post by: Harry Caul on March 05, 2012, 04:29:05 PM
Rich, I'm being an ass and picking apart your statements... the same thing you do.  Enjoy the sparing.  :D

In all seriousness, this is a close community and that's why we all belong to it.  Most people here know your tastes and if they ever came across the poster you were looking for, they would tell you.  If the quad was ever listed for auction, you'd probably get 5 PMs about it before Mel outted the auction to rest of the anonymous APF guests out there who also collect Chandler.  As we all know, it only takes 2 people to run up a poster price. 

Guests typically outnumber members 5:1.  There are clearly lots of collectors on this forum who don't contribute to it.  For those who think that outting this information doesn't have fiscal consequences for your friends here, you are deluding yourselves.  And as others have pointed out, it isn't about being cheap or being whiny.  It is about being courteous and respectful of other members. 

I believe in looking out for fellow members.  That includes alerting them to posters that fall in their range of interests, AND not screaming it from the rooftops to their bidding competitors.  Hell, I bought you a Chandler poster you didn't have simply because I thought you would appreciate it.  It wasn't expensive, but it wasn't free and it did take effort that I didn't have to give.  I have done it for others as well.  But again, this is why we have a close community and a PM system.

To everyone -- no matter how small of a niche you think you collect, there are others out there that collect it too.  Otherwise you'd win everything you bid on for a $1 at eMovieposter.

#1 of course as you already know, I very much appreciated the poster (especially because it was one I was looking for)

#2 while you think it is courteous & respectful to NOT post about auctions, everyone does not share your opinion and some of us think it is just as courteous to post about these auctions. As a matter of fact from previous threads on this issue (this must be the 4th time on APF), people argued both sides

#3 Holiday & Thierry clearly have not deleted this thread, nor have they deleted mid-auction, so this all by itself is an exemplification of their opinion that such threads should not be censored and seeing as they are the "Law Givers", it looks like this thread is here to stay.

#4 Do you think that by now, most people don't already go direct to Mel's calendar, where all these auctions are already posted anyway??

this is such a silly issue to me. It's a public forum posting & sharing public information. What do you think is supposed to be going on here???

That is not what I said, I tell lots of people about on going auctions... via PM.  To all -- if you haven't got a PM from me, I probably don't know your collecting tastes, I haven't come across any good posters for you, or your tastes overlap to closely with my own.


#3 Holiday & Thierry clearly have not deleted this thread, nor have they deleted mid-auction, so this all by itself is an exemplification of their opinion that such threads should not be censored and seeing as they are the "Law Givers", it looks like this thread is here to stay.

As I said in the previous discussions, I'm not calling for censorship.  I'm calling for respect and courtesy for other members.  Most people are fully capable of self censoring when the situation calls for it.  Some, as we have seen, are not.  It is of course Mel's right to post this stuff, but it also my right to tell him to fucking stop it EVERY SINGLE TIME HE DOES IT.  I'm sorry if you don't want to hear it every time I do it.  If not, then stop responding to these threads and let him and me duke it out.

I find it odd that some people defend their right to tell other people what not to post, especially when there appear to be no rules against what they are doing. Isn't that kind of like asking for rules in a knife fight?

In my opinion, Mel at least doubled the likely total take for this obscure auction (I know I never heard of it before, and I might well spend 20K there now that I do know of it). When he posts a link to a high profile auction, especially an expensive one, I doubt he raises the take at all. But do you all want a rule against one or the other? If so, either Thierry or Holiday to make one, or else start yet another forum where such posts are not allowed.

Wow, I'm surprised that post is raising such a fuss.

This forum is not a "secret society of poster collectors." The principle of "the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few" applies here. The "few" of you who apparently hoped to keep that auction secret and not let the rest of us know are just being greedy.

As far as the ridiculous "kickback" allegation, that lady sent me an email about that auction to my administrator email account at moviepostercollectors.com, so I decided to pass it on to my fellow collectors.  I did glance at the listings and was planning on bidding for a few, so to some extent it's against my self-interest to mention the auction publicly, but such is life....

I am attending both the Cameo auction tomorrow and the Mallam's sale on March 17th. These are not top secret events and I knew about them before they were "outed".  I welcome Mel's postings in this thread. I don't want to miss an auction I don't know about which might have something I am looking for.

On this occasion, I may face additional competition from bidders who did not previously know about the Mallam's auction. That's just my bad luck and a price I am willing to pay for being a member of an interesting and open forum. I still maintain an advantage in that I get to handle and check the condition of the posters close up (believe me, you need to do this in these provincial non-specialist UK auction houses) and I sit with maybe as few as half a dozen attendees with a direct physical link to the auctioneer during the sale, hoping that the live internet feed will stutter on the lots I am interested in.

As always, I am happy to check condition and/or bid on posters for established members so long as this does not conflict with my own objectives in the sale.

Mark

That perfectly contextualizes your comments in this thread for me Bruce.  You didn't do the work to find this obscure auction, but now that you know about it you might drop $20k(!), and you fully expect that Mel posting this will double the final value of the posters.  Gotcha.  Check.

Again, I maintain that posting obscure stuff like this mainly benefits people who don't do their own research -- and it disproportionately benefits those with deep pockets directly at the expense of people trying to sniff out deals on posters the might not otherwise be able to afford.  Please think twice next time Mel.  And use PMs if you are truly trying to be helpful.  5:1 guests to members, that's all I'm saying.

I'm afraid I side with Matt and others on this. I too received the email to my website's address and I didn't think for a moment about sharing it. I'm not planning on bidding on anything myself as it's all before my collecting time frame, even if I do appreciate why some folks are excited.

One of the joys of this hobby, for me at least (and I know I'm not alone), is finding that poster bargain - one that would typically sell for more at auction - for a reasonable (ie affordable by me) price. I literally don't understand why anyone would want to spread the word if they see something that might pass under the big guns' radars and allow them to grab a wanted poster. In some ways I would actually hate to be in a position where money was no object in terms of poster collecting as it would take a lot of the fun out of it. Rich's comments that he doesn't care are utterly baffling to me and I literally can't understand why you don't care if you're paying $100 versus $1000.

The argument about the good of the many versus the few doesn't wash for me either. At the end of the day our hobby is something of a competition, no matter what anyone says. All collecting hobbies are about finding something the other collectors don't have. It's not about greed at all, just the competition.

With all that being said I didn't believe for a second that likes of Mark and (auction sleuth) Matt wouldn't have already been aware of this auction, but it's the fact that this forum has so many lurkers guests that is the issue and is why I would never post about an auction like this.

Hi Ed,

You have indeed nailed it by saying that this is in many ways a competition as we're all hunting down our favourite posters for the best possible price, often in direct competion with our fellow collectors.

But to play devil's advocate for a moment, if this were your collection that was being sold at the auction you'd very much hope that every possible measure was being taken to promote the event (which inevitably involves 'word of mouth') to gain you the best possible result.

I guess we'd all like things to work both ways by buying low and (if/when the time comes) selling high but it doesn't always work that way and I'm torn to which way I stand on the matter as I look at both sides of the argument. I guess it always comes back to the classic 'pay what you're willing to pay'. If that means getting something at a better price than that is a bonus.

Paul.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Ed_209uk on March 06, 2012, 12:41:40 PM
Paul: I can completely see what you mean about it cutting both ways for buyer and seller and it's definitely a tough one. I can't see this argument being resolved any time soon.

It'd be interesting to hear from the forum's owners on this. Without wanting to speak for them I'm pretty sure neither of them has ever posted a link to an upcoming auction or added a link to the mid-auction thread.

Why do guests get a bad rap?  I'm sure they have reasons for why they don't chime in here.  Why do people think that makes them less worthy to be informed of stuff than members?

Neo is spot-on.

and Ed.. the concept that I might have gotten something for $100 but now it costs me $1000 is off in calculation

the real math is this:
value to me+bid cost+other bidders=happy win/unemotional loss

and I doubt I could win for $100 those things I'm looking for that are valued at $1000, although $500-700 might not have been out of the question with less bidders.. But if I pay $1000 for something, as long as I was willing, I won.. end of story

If you wish for such information not to be shared, then you need to have your own forum where you make the rules. I completely disagree with the philosophy  that because anyone disagrees with me, that I am wrong. This is a "6 of one, a half dozen of the other" issue. I'm for "6 of one"

I've never asked for a rule change and I don't believe anyone else has either.

It's more of a (for lack of a better word) "morality" issue.

I went on at length about "respect amongst collectors or forum members" in the Mid-Auction Thread.  This is the crux of the argument.

So it's not a concern about Rules - it is a concern about R-E-S-P-E-C-T (I think there might even be a catchy song to go along with that
if you'd like?)

So Matt, and who ever else knew about it.  How come you guys didn't PM me?  I am not an asshole; if you told me about it and told me what you would be bidding on I wouldn't take it out from under you...  I can see the point on posting it for the whole world to see but how many of you that knew about it spread the good word discretely?

here's a dilemma....
you find an obscure auction with some paper you really want, do you:

A) keep quiet and hope you are the only one ?
B) advertise is on this forum and add competitors to the auction?

that is a very different proposition to finding an auction where there is no paper you want

I am betting the majority of people would choose option A)

Third Option:

C) There is a Chandler 3-Sheet Rich doesn't have and you don't give a shit about chandler so you PM Rich and let him know...  Then you hope he doesn't bid on your Dracula quad.  But if he did that then why would you ever PM him again...

Well, then you move on. See, what you want is something in return from the favor you gave to him. If he legitimately and without malice wants the poster as well to add to his collection then so be it. You being magnanimous should not come with strings attach. Or at least that's how I would be. I would be bummed for sure but I wouldn't take it against him.

if any of you think that the "collector's with the big pockets" don't know that there's a Dracula quad for sale (even at a lesser known auction house) or indeed that one day you'll find "a valuable poster" between a few floorboards than I envy your sweet naivity. If you try your best you'll find a poster that is pretty valuable, let's say up to a $1000 which may even be a little attractive. And it's a nice feeling, but it probably isn't an item you were looking for in the first place.
The "competition- not greed" aspect is highly emotional and totally irrational. Either you like the poster for your own particular taste / your happy childhood / because it reminds you of your cat or you like it because you find your own bit of precious.
The truth is that Mel's post has possibly increased competition between fellow men, fellow board members with the same amateur zeal and the same limited funds. Probably only a few will have a go at the auction anywa, because it is an unknown quantity,  the quality or cost of shipping is unknown, as is the description of the lots etc. and it is much more comfortable to check Bruce 3 times a week. No harm in that. problem is that the collectors with big pockets aren't as passionate, they don't have to check Bruce's auctions or Rich's or even Heritage's. They care less about initial condition, let alone cost of shipping. they do know how to get their Dracula quad though.
I'm very much with Rich on this. Loose the emotion for the missed precious and stay passionate for what you really want and like.

I certainly sympathize with both sides on this issue, which as Chris said, has been re-hashed repeatedly on this forum.

This most recent firestorm was ignited when Mel posted -- in verbatim -- Mallams correspondence to him.
I am re-printing it here because it is pertinent to this debate and has been lost in the melee.

"I am writing to inform you of the Vintage Posters from the 1950s & 1960s auction that is to take place on Saturday 17th March at 10.30am at Mallams Auctioneers in Oxford. This 240 lot auction is compiled from a 760 poster collection that has been untouched since the posters graced the front of an Irish Cinema in the 1950s and1960s. Mostly of British quad size this auction is a fantastic piece of cinematic history and titles within the sale include The Ladykillers, Dracula, The Man With The Golden Arm, Brides of Dracula, Saint Joan, Abbott & Costello, Return of the Fly, Funny Face and much more.
 
Please find a link to the online catalogue here: http://www.catalogue-host.co.uk/mallams/oxford/2012-03-17/page_1
 
Hatty Fisher
 
Mallams Auctioneers
Bocardo Gallery

Oxford
OX1 2EB
 
01865 241358"


Ms. Fisher sent this email to Mel's site for inclusion on his board at moviepostercollectors.com.  Mel, being the good guy that he is, took that request one step further and decided to share that information with us here at APF. Now, I know that there are a few of us who already had designs on certain lots at Mallams and it sucks if they now face stiffer competition in getting their posters, but what do you expect Mel to do?  Sit on information that was sent to him to disseminate? Not share news of a notable auction with his fellow movie poster collectors?

And, what about the upside of this scenario?  If Mallams sees a bump in business because this particular auction went "viral" (thanks to Mel), wouldn't it stand to reason that Mallams would look to run more movie poster auctions? Don't we all want to see that also?

In my mind, Mel did the right thing.  He is helping Mallams and APF by informing us of an upcoming auction event.
There will be winners and losers at every one of these auctions.  It is inevitable -- it happens every day.
And, none of us has the corner on internet auctions.

Mel might not get the apologies that he deserves, but what I think is infinitely worse is that he will sit on information that will benefit us all because it might raise the hackles of a few.

Nothing snobby about it.  You don't have to be an expert, have a bunch of money or any of the other areas that one can be 'snobby' to be able to contribute.  All it takes is a little time and/or effort.  If someone can't even bothered to do a bare minimum, then why on earth should I care about them?


If Mel didn't have a history of self-aggrandizing auction posting, then he might be getting a little more slack now...  As, essentially, a PR release, I have less of an issue with something like this than I do with outing individual auctions.

I'm sure I could find obscure auctions, as could the rest of us, we just can't and/or don't dedicate as much time to it as some people.  This joint is about open discussion, with some exceptions, but outing auctions is not one of those exceptions, for various reasons.  It's been rehashed to this vitriolic point, where even guests are being attacked.

Personally, I collect very few items in general, so that's one reason why I'm not going on a wild-goose chase to find auctions.  

This vitriol is almost like The Treasure of Sierra Madre and "gold fever."

I am not sure I got your post here.  Everything we do in life has some self benefit behind it.  This place is a community; I figure if you build good relationships then we can help each other out.  If I see something that someone doesn't have and I know they like it (caveat: I don't want it either) then send it on.  If I found said Chandler three-sheet why would I tell anyone else but Rich?  If he does me a favor later by finding me a poster, then great.  If not, then I still get the satisfaction of knowing I helped someone get a poster they really wanted...  Both are benefits in some way...

Avoiding bullshit in a forum can be very difficult.  Case in point, Adam, and I'm not saying he was a helpless victim, he played a role in the way things unfolded.

Someone said a few years ago "words can be more violent than actions."  Forums and other online entities have a lot of scathing comments, and some people choose to not be a part of it.

This auction "outing" discussion has obviously gone much deeper in meaning than it had to, but I think we all know the root cause of why people get mad about "outing" auctions in the first place, and that is, greed.

In this internet age you do not have to spend ANY time or effort to find these auctions, certainly in the UK.

This is an open forum which I understood was for sharing knowledge about this hobby. Mel probably does more than any other forum member in this regard. By all means quietly grumble to yourself if a poster that you hoped to acquire at a "bargain basement" price is outed but please do not attack someone publicly for drawing attention to it.

A while ago, when I gave some background information on the Gangs of New York posters with the best intentions, I think my posting contributed to the auction being pulled. Holiday and Dale, neither of whom I knew to be interested in the posters, must of been mad at me but they maintained a dignified silence.

Also, I think that your are ascribing much more feeling/anger to this discussion than is actually present.

It has far less to do with greed, than it does with practicality.

My comment about Mel was with regard to his PRIOR self-aggrandizing auction posting and mentioning it as a reason as to why he would be under more scrutiny in this case than if someone else had brought it up.

And you just helped prove my point about the drama.  I 'missed' everything concerning Adam and it was very easy to do.

Wow this thread has continued while I was asleep

That is quite a generalization Wim... you clearly aren't trying very hard:

Breakfast at Tiffany's 1-sheet -- $305
In a Lonely Place French 1-panel -- $550
Lot of 18 Star Wars trilogy posters  -- $50
Schindler's List Saul Bass 1-sheet -- $211
Schindler's List Saul Bass 1-sheet -- $350
Don't Bother to Knock 1-sheet -- $350
Niagara 1-sheet -- $150
(2) King Kong heralds - $35
I'm sure I'm missing plenty more...

And I'm not even counting my Magnum Force 40x60 I got for $125 as that was from a garage sale. :)  All of the above were won at auction.  If they had been discussed here, do you really think I would have won them for those amounts?  

I'd say those are all examples of the category I described. Every collector will have his own little trophy and yes I have stopped trying hard. There's no need for it. I'm quite happy with the posters that I find the relaxed way. I bought an English rerelease doorpanel of Thief Of Bagdad for 2000 English pounds without chasing it that I might have gotten for less chasing it for years or haggling endlessly. And I'm honest enough to admit that if another one like that will turn up and fetch half of that price I will have to clear my throat a little. Still I will always love it more than the Italian Job onesheet I bought for 10 euro.


BTW Why would you want 2 Schindler's Lists?
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Mondo Hazardo on March 07, 2012, 02:46:44 AM
Wim: Can you tell me how the collectors with big pockets already know about such auctions?

I did not say that they know of the auctions. Probably they are blissfully unaware of them. But the people who have the wishlists of those deep pockets, for example the people at Posteritati or Sean or Peter of MPE or Tony Nourmand, will definitely also get word of the upcoming sale of a DRracula quad.

Got a quick question about Mallam's; if you place a commission bid versus online bid are you more likely to just get the item for your commission bid...  Lot those lobby card sets...  I guess my question is, which is better commission bid or the salesroom route?

Thanks!

Hope this is the place to post these photos... I went to the London Film Memorabilia Convention today and thought some people might be interested to see them! If this is the wrong place let me know where they should go!

First one's of the location, living in London you sometimes forget what an amazing city you travel around... (l-r) Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and the one on the right with the dome is where the event is.
(http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh164/ianeastdulwich/1LONFILMMEMCONV103121024.jpg)

It's in the cellar of course, no windows.

This seemed to be the US corner, three dealers over from America for the event.

Had a quick chat with this dude, thought he might have been a member here but he said he was only on MOPO (forgot to ask his name!).
(http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh164/ianeastdulwich/5LONFILMMEMCONV10312.jpg)

This couple had an amazing wall of lobby cards... and they nearly sold me a gnarly Goldfinger one with Bond and Oddjob for £30.

Thanks for sharing those AP, it looks as though it's smaller than the last time I was there, which is quite some years back. It used to be upstairs, in the central hall, if I remember right.  (I wonder how much that Devil girl from mars Half sht was...) did I type that!!!!

Do you know if the one at Camden in the electric ball room is still on the go?
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: agentprovocateur on March 10, 2012, 01:57:41 PM
Glad you like'em Paul... have just zoomed in on that 'Devil Girl From Mars' and it looks like $1000 (the three US stalls had their wares marked up in $'s), does that sound in the ballpark? The "Queen From Outer Space' had $650 on it... not sure whether they're good or bad prices!

Weirdly enough I actually picked up a flyer for the Camden event today, the dates listed are 14 April, 26 May, 18 Aug, 20 Oct and 8 Dec (all Saturdays). I'll try and take a photo of the flyer and post it on here tomorrow (together with the rest of the Westminster dates as they've got some great celebrity signings coming up this year).

Post by: paul waines on March 10, 2012, 02:05:49 PM
Thanks AP, that does sound in the ball-park...unfortunately.... eyeroll
I can never work out why prices on anything on that title are so high.

It's good to know Camden is still on the go, I don't get down south too
often these days, but I always liked to go to those two events, though I
always found that at Camden prices were much more reasonable... ;D
Maybe it was the sticky carpet.... ;)

The stalls are on the ballroom part (wooden floor) at Camden, as if you dropped a poster on the carpeted part, you wouldn't get it back up as they stick to it... :D

Lets hope those U.S. dealers go, I may get that DGFM Half sht for $650... ;)

Glad the photos were of interest, 110x75 thanks for posting yours as well... now just to create a new thread called 'Movie Poster Events... that have happened'.

Thanks for putting names to faces Rich, they were all very nice and friendly, but I think Lee (Brinsmead) wasn't impressed I didn't go for his original Goldfinger card. I did check with them as I noticed all the stuff on their wall looked like photo copies, but I think something got lost in translation as I thought they were just there as placeholders and they had the originals tucked away!

The reason I was thinking about buying a Goldfinger piece will become evident below...

Oh, Brude, yep there were a couple of purchases yesterday, will hold off on posting until another couple of tubes arrive. Rest assured imo my first four purchases of 2012 (and the final one from 2011... should be arriving Monday) are scrumptious ;D

Here's the flyer for the Camden Film Fair 2012

And here's the front and back of the LFMC 2012 flyer

(http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh164/ianeastdulwich/LFMCWestminster2012flyerbck.jpg)

Y'all notice at the LFMC event on September 22 they've got a special GOLDFINGER day, this is what it says on their website:

A special GOLDFINGER Day
A Celebration Of The Quintessential James Bond Film!
Cast and Crew Reunite For A One-Off Unique Event

Special Guest: HONOR BLACKMAN (Pussy Galore)
Special Guest: SHIRLEY EATON (Jill Masterson)
Special Guest: TANIA MALLETT (Tilly Masterson)
Special Guest: MARGARET NOLAN (Dink)
MORE GUESTS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!

That's why I'm going to try and get a nice beaten up and cheapo Goldfinger item to try and get all the girls to autograph (might even try and get a photo with all of them!!!!). How cool would that be 8)

Hey Rich, doesn't Lee have a shop RIALTO (?) in Seattle? I think I've spent quite a nice (smoke-fueled) afternoon the year I also visited your ragged place and Dario's. I bought a few original Moon And Sixpence lobbies from him, but yes most is repro. As he told me repro's of originals he used to have. Great shop by the way, not only posters, but also nice toys and other such stuff.

If it's the same labyrinthian shop that I'm thinking about, I went in there once in the mid-90s.  The wife was super-super nice and had some great toys, Lee was kind of a jerk when it came to the actual sale and rather pervy, which is why I've never bothered to go back.  I had no idea that they were still in business.

Hey Rich, doesn't Lee have a shop RIALTO (?) in Seattle? I think I've spent quite a nice (smoke-fueled) afternoon the year I also visited your ragged place and Dario's. I bought a few original Moon And Sixpence lobbies from him, but yes most is repro. As he told me repro's of originals he used to have.

yeah maybe that's it.. I was thinking the place was in Portland

38,000+ "likes" as well - I suspect there are more 'Ringers' in all those numbers than there are poster collectors.

BTW - if someone wants to grab one AND get it signed by PJ I will pay. Being from NZ, and having lived on a farm on the outskirts of Matamata as a kid (some 25km/15ml by road and less than 8km/5ml as the crow flies) from Hobbitton I think it will be very cool to have one on the wall...

Some awesome stuff there but I sure don't see anything near $2 million worth, unless the exchange rate is not what I think it is, particularly if they're trying to sell it as a single collection.  We know how hard that can be.  Maybe they had Mrs. Miniver do the valuation?

Incredibly stupid (although easier) to try and sell that as one lot.

Also sad to think that when someone dies (I am assuming this is the case) their collection immediately gets put up for auction after all that work and enjoyment.  I know it's practical but still unfortunate...

And is EVERY poster in that collection linenbacked?!  Oh and for an Aussie collector where are the daybills???

Much of it seems to be non-Aussie stuff, which lessens my interest but protects me from robbing a bank.
Some great stuff for sure, but several items on the website for individual sale are at prices 4-5 times what I paid for the same thing.
I am not a high end player but can't see this getting $2m.
It is being divided into 7 lots, only three are of movie posters. Two of those lots look potentially within decent price range.

Matt, I'm sure anyone seriously considering such a purchase will be able to get a detailed list or will fly in to examine the collection in person

Chris, whether or not it is wise to sell as a few lots or sell piece by piece is a matter of perspective.

by selling in lots, though they will get closer to a wholesale price than a retail price, it will happen all at once.
if you sell piece by piece, who knows how long it would take to get your money
furthermore, unless it is sold as singles in say one or two giant marathon auctions, it could take years to accomplish such a task.
However if you sell everything for even say $500,000, you can then turn around and invest the money and if you invest wisely, with considerably less time involved, you could wind up achieving the same results without the headache of years worth of single sales

a good example is in the Profiles in History "Hollywood Auction" on July 30th & 31st
someone is selling a collection of photoplay editions as a 750 piece collection. I happen to know the owner personally and I know he wants his cash all at once, rather than over the next several years, and statistically, it possible the collection could even go for much more than I.. pardon me, I mean "he" .. could get by selling individually

I don't even understand what you're saying Matt. I'm as seasoned a dealer as anyone is and I couldn't possibly make a judgement like that without seeing a vast selection of what's in the collection, or even just the 100-200 best posters

Rich, I based my comment on what was shown in the teeveeola segment.  I was assuming they pulled out the best stuff for that, and there was a lot of chaff among that wheat.  I doubt those pug fugly western posters or "Citizen Kane" reissues are going to set the poster world on fire.  I was also only considering the movie posters, as I have little to no interest in travel posters, and I presume that might also be an issue for the collection, although from the website I see they at least had the good sense to separate them out.  Maybe there's tons of value in them, I just don't see it (from what's available) in the movie posters.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: MoviePosterBid.com on July 14, 2012, 02:14:51 PM
Peter, it's obvious that the auctioneer doesn't know movie posters very well, but I find it hard to believe that a guy who has 2 rare French King Kong posters worth a lot of money doesn't have other like-value posters. Also, it's obvious he has lots of non-movie posters that could add up quickly

here is some blind estimation that I like to use

7000 posters

if he has:

1000 posters worth $25 (all prices quoted are retail prices) = $25,000
1000 posters worth $50 = $50,000
1000 posters worth $100 = $100,000
1000 posters worth $250 = $250,000
1000 posters worth $500 = $500,000
500 posters worth $1000 = $100,000
500 posters worth $2000 = $1,000,000
200 posters worth $3000 = $600,000
200 posters worth $5000 = $1,000,000
======================
6400 posters ............... $4,025,000

or how about this
7000 posters worth an average of $100 each = $700,000 then add all kinds of money for $500 posters, $1000 posters etc until you get to the KK posters which should be worth $50k-$100k each and all kinds of other posters worth something in between $100 and $5000

it adds up very quickly as a retail value
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: MoviePosterBid.com on July 14, 2012, 02:21:43 PM
by the way, I'll go further in another fashion.

I have thousands of posters in my own collection as well as art, comics etc. I've never evaluated them as a collection and I do have lots of sub-$100 posters.

I have no doubt that minimally my collection is worth $1-2mil at retail prices. maybe even considerably more
then I also have stock.
it adds up quickly

wholesale value rises and falls based on the quality of the material in total
$1.2mil for that collection as a dealer price may be close to on the money. It could also not, but he would have to have scads of useless posters to bounce the values down for all the Big Sleep, Casablanca and Kong French posters
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: oldposterho on July 14, 2012, 03:56:57 PM
I don't disagree too much Rich, after Ari pointed out the per unit price I do see the possible value.  My point was that for this auction, asking for very large lump sums for batches means you're either looking for a wealthy punter or institution (unlikely) or a dealer (way more likely) who has enough spare cash to let it sit in inventory while they're disposed of at closer to retail prices.  I just took issue with the auctioneer's expectation that THIS auction will result in a $2 million dollar haul.  Tell you what, if it makes $2 million AUS hammer price, I'll buy you a case of beer.

The sad thing is if you read between the lines it's likely that the deceased collector wanted his collection to stay whole and that's why they're being auctioned like this.  Unfortunately I just don't see any other scenario other than it being broken up about 15 seconds after they're received by the new owner/s.  Sort of a lesson for collectors I think.  We like this crap a lot more than anybody else does and there's probably not a person on the planet who would keep what we've accumulated as a unit.

Peter, while it must be initially sold as a group as per the owner's request, if the heirs wanted to, they could break such a tenet with legal help if it was true they could achive more money going another way, and the attorneys would be happy to get extended time frames enabling them to get more fees.

but you are correct that once it gets sold, the buyer is not held by any such tenet & seeing as I doubt any institution will be a buyer (they want such collection donated. otherwise they buy individual items they're looking for) the dealer or dealers that buy it will definitely break it up before they even get full possession

This thread seems like the right place to post that our 13th Annual Halloween Auction is about to begin (Part I starts on October 25th and ends November 1st, Part II starts on October 28th and ends November 4th, and Part I starts on October 30th and ends November 6th).

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY OUR BEST HALLOWEEN AUCTION EVER! We don't want you to take our word for it, so we will be adding a preview gallery each day between now and October 26th, each dedicated to a specific size!

Today we added the first preview gallery, which is of the 72 half-sheets. Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012HWpreview/halfsheets/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012HWpreview/halfsheets/) to see it. And then return each day to this other page, http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012HWpreview/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012HWpreview/), because each day we will add another link to to another preview gallery!

Remember that the Part I auctions won't begin until Thursday, October 25th at around 9 PM CST (so you can't view the actual auctions until that time). Best of luck to you on any of the items in this incredible auction that you bid on!

I am currently holding a Movie Poster Exhibition and Sale in Brisbane. It was originally scheduled for a week but has been extended by 2 weeks due to an incredible amount of interest. It seems that people still like to see Movie poster "in person" rather than just look at images on the internet and it has been great to introduce people to the world of movie poster collecting.

It's looking like our next Mini/Major will be held in June, so even though our current one hasn't ended, it is not too soon to start sending consignments for the June one!

The first example of each item we receive is the one that gets in the auction, so there is a real incentive to send sooner rather than later.

Not really. There are plenty more like that! I live close to Cooloongatta and there are towns like Oodnadatta, Wangaratta, etc etc - names that have all been derived from our indigenous Australians.

From wikipedia ......Experts are divided regarding the Aboriginal meaning of the name, preferring either 'whirling waters' (woolloon and capemm) or 'fight talk place' (woolloon and gabba). Woollongabba is particularly famous for being the site of the Brisbane Cricket Ground, known as "The Gabba".

and from "I've Been Everywhere Man" here are some more ....
Moree, Taree, Jerilderie, Bambaroo,
Toowoomba, Gunnedah, Caringbah, Woolloomooloo,
Dalveen, Tamborine, Engadine, Jindabyne,
Lithgow, Casino, Brigalow and Narromine,
Megalong, Wyong, Tuggerawong, Wangarella,
Morella, Augathella, Brindabella, I'm the feller.

Spoken "Yeah, I know that, but have you been to..."

I've been to Wollongong, Geelong, Kurrajong, Mullumbimby,
Mittagong, Molong, Grong Grong, Goondiwindi,
Yarra Yarra, Boroondara, Wallangarra, Turramurra,
Boggabri, Gundagai, Narrabri, Tibooburra,

A reporter sent me an email today about a theater chain in Wyoming selling 10,000 post-1987 posters. I talked to her on the phone for a bit, explained that most moderns aren't worth that much but some (Pulp Fiction) are worth quite a lot.  She's supposed to write an article about the sale and will sent it to me.  Will post....

Subject: Movie poster collector story
To: "AlphaMel1968@gmail.com" <AlphaMel1968@gmail.com>

Hello, my name is Kristy ****** and I am the feature editor of the Casper Star-Tribune in Casper, Wyoming.  A local theater here is having a movie poster sale of all its posters from 1988 to present, more than 10,000. They are going to sell them for between $1 to $10. I’m writing a newspaper article and was looking around for a Wyoming-based poster collector. I couldn’t find any, but ran across your site. I would like to talk to a collector about this genre. I was impressed with your site and wondered if you might have 15 minutes free today or early tomorrow that we could talk about the basics of starting a poster collection. Or, if you know of a Wyoming-based collector that you could put me in touch with. Of course, I’d list your website in the article.

Post by: brude on March 20, 2013, 09:35:35 PM
Mel, I'm curious.... Why did you tell this 'reporter' that some of those posters are worth a lot of money?
The only one who stands to gain from that is the theater.
If the proceeds were going to charity (are they?), then I would've done the same.
If not, you screwed the pooch for any kids looking for bargains.
If it was me, I would've given the 'reporter' nothing but cursory info.  
Let them do the research themselves.
If I lived in Wyoming and was waiting for this sale, I'd FedEx you some pooch poop in a box.

I still love you, Mel.
I'm just cranky tonight is all.

10,000 movie posters for sale March 30 at Casper theater (http://trib.com/weekender/movie-posters-for-sale-march-at-casper-theater/article_069703c6-cdf6-5fff-b13a-a417e81a30ac.html)

March 21, 2013 5:00 pm

By KRISTY GRAY Star-Tribune features editor

When Lance Madzey walks into the Movie Palace poster sale, he will know what he is looking for. Anything from George Romero or David Cronenberg or Clive Barker, all makers of good flicks. The “Naked Gun” poster “would be awesome.” The poster from “Mississippi Burning,” one of Madzey’s favorite Alan Parker movies, with the faces of Gene Hackman and Willem Dafoe glowing by the light of a burning cross. Nifty. “I need to make sure I don’t run in there and just start bowling people over,” said Madzey, film teacher at Natrona County High School and a self-described ultra-nerd for all things cinema.

Here’s what Madzey is so excited about: For the first time since new management bought Movie Palace in 1988, theaters are clearing out space, selling thousands of official movies posters to anyone who wants them, said general manager Joey Houck.

He’s not sure exactly how many because staff is still going through them. He expects more than 10,000 posters representing some 4,000 titles. They will be priced between $1 and $10.

The theater will also sell vinyl banners and larger posters called bus-shelters, but they haven’t set prices. Feel free to dicker, Houck said.

Movie posters are collectible, but, like anything else, price depends on demand in relation to supply, said Mel Huston, a collector in Washington, D.C., with more than 1,200 posters in his personal stash. Huston is administrator of Movie Poster Collectors, www.moviepostercollectors.com, a portal for poster enthusiasts and a debunker of fakes.

Newer posters — those coming, say, after the mid-1980s — were mostly mass-produced. Theaters got several copies each. They are easy to find and demand is relatively low. Posters at the Movie Palace sale all date from 1988 to 2013.

Modern posters almost certainly feature a photo illustration, making them less valuable than posters from the 1920s to the 1970s painted by hired artists. Think Princess Leia showing thigh in front of Luke Skywalker (six pack shimmering through his open shirt) in front of a floating Darth Vader head.  (They just don’t Photoshop them like that anymore.)

“I do look primarily for artistry. I actually rarely watch movies,” said Huston, who estimates that he’s seen just 25 percent of the movies that go with his posters. “You’d think most collectors would be movie fanatics, but they really aren’t. I just like the art and concept.”

That said, come to the Movie Palace sale and buy what you like, Huston suggests. Don’t go hunting for an investment. Look for posters from movies you love or movie makers you admire. If a couple of snakes wrapped around a jet is your thing, ask for the “Snakes on a Plane” poster. (Movie Palace has it.)

Also remember that several designs may be released for the same movie, so you might want one of each. And it never hurts to look and see what you find. There are always exceptions. Take the recalled “Pulp Fiction” poster. The film, released in 1994, turned Quentin Tarantino into a superstar and revitalized the career of John Travolta. The original one-sheet poster shows Uma Thurman, in her iconic black bob, stretched out on her stomach, ankles crossed behind her. She is smoking a cigarette with a pack of Lucky Strikes, a handgun and a paperback copy of “Harlot in the Heart” lying in front.

A couple of problems: Miramax didn’t have permission to use Lucky Strikes cigarettes and the “Harlot in the Heart” paperback in the poster, Huston said. Lucky Strikes threatened to sue, and Miramax ordered theaters to send back all the posters or pay a $10 fine for every poster not returned. Most theaters complied because nobody knew what a monster hit “Pulp Fiction” would become. Miramax reportedly destroyed the posters and issued new ones.  But some survived, most likely sneaked home by savvy theater employees. The “Lucky Strikes” poster, as collectors call it, comes up for sale on eBay three or four times a year, fetching between $500 and $1,000. Huston has seen some retailers selling it for $1,500. (If you think you’ve spotted one, a word of warning: Beware of fakes. This poster is particularly popular with copycats. Research before you buy.)

You probably won’t find one at the Movie Palace sale, but there’s no harm in looking. In general, posters for children’s movies will sell for $5 or more since those are more collectible. Same goes for some horror flicks and cult favorites, Houck said.

Madzey doesn’t consider himself a collector, just a film nut. He has about 50 posters — enough to plaster the walls of his home and classroom with plenty left for storage. He believes posters, like the music score, are an extension of the film and prefers painted posters that show imagination.  He’s got a list several movies long ready for when he walks into the sale: “Leviathan,” “Warlock,” “Darkman” and “Body Parts.” “Tales from the Dark Side,” “Commitments” and “People under the Stairs.” In his wildest dreams, he’ll find “Fright Night,” “one of my most favorite posters ever,” even if it is circa 1985. It’s painted, with a creepy house, a dark street and storm clouds shaped like spiked-toothed vampires.

“I’ve never heard of a movie theater doing something like this. Usually you have to work at the theater to get this kind of access,” Madzey said. “I think it’s brilliant. Whoever thought of it, it was a really great idea.”

Watch for Madzey if you go to the sale. He doesn’t want to bowl you over.

My last comment regards the steady decline in the quality of newspaper reporting.
That 'article' is riddled with errors that should've been corrected before it saw publication.

Whether the 'article' or 'event' is 'good for the hobby' is debatable depending on whether you're a buyer or a seller.
In your case, your site got a plug, which is good for you.
But, now that she has proclaimed you a 'debunker of fakes' to the people of Casper, Wyoming, you really need to update your site with Helmut Hamm's German Apocalypse Now info as posted to MOPO. 

I'm sure Mr. Hamm wouldn't mind me quoting him:

"Heritage has sold a few originals, and when you look at one of their large images, in the bottom left border, roughly in the middle between the FSK stamp and the water drops, are two small white specks. These are apparently a printing defect, and they do not show up on the fakes. If you compare the one on ebay to any of the Heritage images, you will notice the difference. The fakes were made by someone in Germany a few years ago, and I frequently see them offered on ebay as originals."

Your role as a debunker is "good for the hobby."
Keep at it.
 cheers

Before posting this, I looked at the first pages of this thread, and saw that this was created to share well publicized items like this, as well as exhibitions etc.

This thread is peppered with what were then other upcoming auctions, some were even described as "obscure" or  were less publicized, according to the initial posts.

Once I posted and later saw Paul's response, i went back and read even deeper into the thread and saw that there are some that feel this is "outing auctions." I'm not about doing that. I had received an email about this auction over the weekend; and yesterday, it was listed to MOPO (and i'm sure the info distributed far and wide by that auctioneer, via the net, too).

My intent was not to "out" an auction but to pass along information about another auction/event that was occurring, in the very thread for which these kinds of things was created. I did not "out" singular lots; nor would I have.

And no one has any idea whether I will be bidding or not. I haven't yet taken the time to closely look at everything being offered.

I won't be posting any other 'upcoming auction" info here, as I respect the views of those who view it that way.  ;)

I'm glad your changing your stance on this Jeff, it is a very touchy subject. The only people who win on "outed" auctions are the sellers and people with deep pockets. Some of us less well off buyers live for a bargain, and the more who know about an auction the less likely it is.  If it's the case were it's been publicised on other forums, why is there a need to bring it up on this one?  Just incase someone missed it? which is letting more people in on it again, and even less chance of a bargain.

I must add that all bargains are not hundreds of Dollars, it may well be a $50 piece that one could win for $30, in which case it pays for posting and the dreaded customs charges.... but a few more knowing of it will push up the price. I makes a difference to us real collectors who aren't loaded.

Thanks for the post, Jeff, too bad you let the shrill minority intimidate you.

There are and never have been any restrictions on posting about upcoming movie poster auctions on this forum, notwithstanding the lamentations of Matt, Paul, and a few others here.

In fact these announcements are extremely beneficial to forum members who don't have time to "scour the earth" to find them.

The Garth auction is clearly appropriate for publication in this thread because it is a large poster auction (156 posters.)

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/Garths.jpg)

Also, it is not remotely any kind of "secret" since it has been publicized on MOPO.  

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/Garth.jpg)

Now, since Matt and Paul have tried to intimidate others who disagree with their "cloak and dagger" thinking, it's time to reveal exactly how all the dealers and some collectors find about these less-prominent auctions.  

A while back I Googled "auction finder" and the first result is AuctionZip.com (https://www.google.com/search?q=auction+finder&oq=auction+finder&aqs=chrome.0.57j60l3j59j62.1592&sugexp=chrome,mod=1&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8). It turns out many obscure movie poster auctions are listed on AuctionZip.com (http://AuctionZip.com), which aggregates smaller auctions.  Type in your zip code and search for "movieposters." This is the current search result:

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/AuctionZip-link.jpg)

The Garth auction is the one with 156 lots and clearly stands out.  You can bid on the Internet on any "live lot."

Now don't worry about keeping track of this post. I've added this information to MoviePosterCollectors.com "Buying Guide" page (http://moviepostercollectors.com/Buying_Guide.html):

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/MPC-others.jpg)

And I'll be sure to post some of the more prominent poster auctions in this thread.  Sadly for Matt and Paul, I'm not easily intimidated.

What a crock.

Firstly, people do realise, no matter how great it is, nearly every darn poster collector isn't a member here or on any of the forums right?

If a guest finds this, you do realise it's pretty likely they can also find the links above right?

Strikes me as selfish anyway, want it all for me, no competition, blah and don't play they poor collector card, this isn't food or water, it's bloody posters.

Nobody who buys a single poster for any amount of money is poor. Poor people do not collect anything except food and maybe fleas. Gimme a break. And I live well below the poverty line in Australia, and I don't consider myself poor. Shit typing on the damn Internet wipes that claim out.

If anyone had any question as to the kind of person Mel is, I just wanted to let everyone know that I personally told Mel that I've scored the odd deal on that site.  It's an absolute mess of a site and it's fairly well known, but I've probably picked up one or two items a year that have slipped through the cracks.  Keep in mind I told him this on one of his TWO visits to my home.

Mel, I invited you into my house, to meet my wife, to give you a guided tour through the exhibit I set up, and you take information given in confidence -- no matter how seemingly insignificant -- and use it to personally fuck me like this?  I don't care if I ever get a deal through that site again, it's worth it showing your true stripes.  What is doubly fucked up is that Mel thought he could take a very, very personal dig at me this way, but disguise it as a random thing.  Wow, just wow.  I hope it was worth loosing a poster buddy over.

Have the balls to do it publicly Mel.  Tell them we've discussed the site, while you were an invited guest in my house, and then tell everyone you are posting it here publicly as a personal fuck you because you disagree with my stance on outing an auction early.  I assume you were expecting me not to say anything?

Rich you're missing the point entirely - Mel apparently had no knowledge of the site until Matt made him aware of it.

It doesn't matter if others knew about it or if it could be searched and found easily - it's Mel's actions in blatantly ignoring that that information was given to him in confidence.  Matt, Paul, mine and others positions/opinions (yours included) are well known on APF in terms of posting links to auctions.  Thus Mel obviously knew - beyond the information being relayed to him from a position of trust - that Matt would not appreciate the site being posted.  And yet he did it anyways "because he is not easily intimidated".  Takes a big man to not be intimidated by losing all sense of integrity.  

It's a personal slight that's seems fairly inexplicable...

That isn't true. Mel did know about it. But I did tell him about a handful of deals I found through the site and I asked him not to flaunt the it if it wasn't already being discussed.  He knows where I stand regarding outing auctions and everything else you wrote was correct.  He took this very personal dig at me despite my trust and hospitality.

Sadly, I've told Mel about many things in confidence which, for one reason or another, I've decided to not share publicly.  If he starts posting them at least y'all will get to read about some of my other finds  ;D

Rich you're missing the point entirely - Mel apparently had no knowledge of the site until Matt made him aware of it.

wrong Chris

I didn't miss that point at all. That's a personal issue for Matt and Mel.
the rest of the discussion about outing auctions is - as I have said many times - amongst the most ridiculous complaints I see on these forums. Or actually - this forum - because I don't see this argument anywhere else.

Matt and Charlie should be nominated for the William Shatner overacting hall of fame.

As I said before, I found AuctionZip.com totally on my own, as could anybody doing a simple search for "auction locator" or "auction finder" on Google.  It's the number one search result:

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/Auction-finder-Google.jpg)

Matt and I later discussed AuctionZip.com but I certainly never agreed or implied to keep it a "secret." And why is Matt publicly proclaiming he got some of his best deals through AuctionZip? I didn't mention that.

Why explicitly reveal it now?  I'm tired of Matt and Paul jumping on anyone mentioning any auction or particular item for auction, notwithstanding Holiday's pronouncement that there are no restrictions on this forum.  They went too far this time by inappropriately intimidating another member for "revealing" a prominent MOVIE POSTER auction with ONE HUNDRED FIFTY SIX MOVIE POSTERS for auction.

And I'm sure Matt will continue to find many stellar deals through AuctionZip. It's still too much time and trouble for most collectors to deal with the smaller auctions.  Even though I've known about it for quite a while, I've rarely checked out any non-live-lot listing. Typically, I only look at the auctions with several "live lots."

Regardless, the collectors on this board and the readers of MoviePosterCollectors.com deserve to know about AuctionZip.com since it's a useful movie poster auction locator.

It's certainly not a "secret."  

It claims to have 1.6 million MONTHLY visitors and be affiliated with 25,000 auctioneers. (http://www.auctionzip.com/about.html)

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/AuctionZip-stats.jpg)


I've previously referenced it:

http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,237.msg93503.html#msg93503 (http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,237.msg93503.html#msg93503)

(http://i691.photobucket.com/albums/vv275/Forty_Candles/2012/WizardofOzStyleD_zpsb9b52b26.jpg)


All dealers in this business obviously know about it and other collectors have expressly referenced it on the movie poster boards:

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/AuctionZip1.jpg)

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/MOPO.jpg)


In the end, AuctionZip.com is simply a useful tool, nothing more, nothing less, just like:

- Gavelsnipe.com (http://www.gavelsnipe.com) (free sniping)

- WatchedItem.com (http://www.watcheditem.com) (find number of watchers, which shows general level of interest in poster)

- Google Translator (http://translate.google.com/) (to read foreign language poster websites and communicate with non-English speaking dealers)

P.S. Garth's Auctions needs to change its business name, hard to take it seriously:

Rich this is what you posted and what I was responding to (maybe I should have quoted it earlier ;) ):

Matt, while I can appreciate your anger at Mel for what you perceive as a secret, your premise is wrong. Do you really think we don't know about auctionzip?


The premise was not that noone else knew about the site, it was - as I posted - that Mel betrayed a certain level of expected discretion that he was well aware of.  So yes personal.  But stating or showing "look how easy it is to find" does not simply do away with Mel's actions...

I was going to chime in on this never ending saga, with some philosophical questions, such as "what is the greatest good for the greatest number of people?" (utilitarianism - Jeremy Bentham).  However, given the fact that this issue has been rehashed numerous times, and H and T have decided to allow sharing current auctions/fixed price items, it's clear that it would be futile to expect anything to change among the few people that continually whine about "outing auctions."  I'd say that Ari, Rich, and Mel nailed it, and it's pretty sad that a few people, who consider their self-interests higher than the greater good of the hobby, have to turn so many "mid/upcoming-auctions" into these train wrecks.

This hobby is about enjoying the posters and memories those give items conjure up for us.

In that regard, Ive thought about this one aspect. Let' say auction X has a poster that an APF collector has really been looking for. The poster is nothing all that rare or fancy and not of much interest to a lot of others.

So because that particular auction event is kept "under wraps" (and im not talking about posting or outing individual lots here), this one collector, who could have potentially had this long searched-for poster, will never know about it and that poster will slip thru his fingers once again.

And all because only some here were privy to that auction and/or the knowledge of a website like Auctionzip.

Yes, the hobby is a solitary one, but isnt it also about helping others find what they are seeking, too?  :-\

Lets say, My hobby is collecting posters, you may also collect them, but as a friend you help me find something, so you would not want everyone to know just me, as what would be the point of being friends and letting everyone else know.

And just as a side note.  Lets say a Dracula Quad comes up for sale very cheap, where no one knows about it.    For the good of the hobby it would be better in my collection as I collect Quads, but if you can get it for a steal, you ain't going to tell me about it...    Solitary Hobby.

Now where we all come under the same umbrella is fakes, scams, bad dealers, etc. Yes we all should help each other with regards these, but buying is a personal thing, and sometimes your friends help you.

There is no mixing up of arguments on my part.

I am speaking strictly from the POV of whether upcoming auction info should be publicized on APF or not, since there were initial responses to my posting of the auction info the other night. Again, i can certainly see both sides of the coin here, and why it is touchy.   ;)

Paul, for a friend, or if they are someone you know, you may know many of his her collecting habits or areas of interest, so a PM about that auction or lot would make sense.

But what about for people on APF that you do not know or are not friends with?

You will not know what they collect, and the said poster example i used above, may be something that you would not ever buy to add to your collection. So you would never PM that stranger, and the poster would be missed/lost out on by him or her.

That is how I was approaching that question and example.  :)

Right Paul, but, per my example, it will be "lost" = not obtained by the person who had been on the hunt for it and really has wanted to find it, simply because they did not know it was being sold in Auction X.  ;)

I think it is more about a violation of implied confidence and trust on a poster buddy level.

These charges are false. Please stop repeating them. I already said I found out about AuctionZip.com on my own.  The facts are that (1) I asked Matt where he was finding these obscure auctions, (2) he wouldn't tell me, and (3) I figured it out on my own.  After I found it on my own, we did discuss the site and some of his specific transactions but at no time did I promise or imply that I would not reveal what I learned on my own. I have not discussed and will not discuss his particular transactions.  Matt and I have always “agreed to disagree.”  I have always said information should be reasonably shared. He thinks everything should be confidential.

In any event, AuctionZip.com is not a secret and it’s basically like Ebay. Every “live lot” is combed over by dealers and collectors and you are likely to face stiff competition on the best stuff, just as you would on Ebay.

Furthermore, AuctionZip.com is a secondary outlet for auctioneers. Most auctioneers promote their auctions separately and independently. For example, I found out about the Dewey Law Firm international poster auction through a direct promotion.  Later, I checked and saw that it was listed on AuctionZip as well.

Finally, I don’t trust these smaller auctioneers. It’s a jungle out there.  Most of the collectors reading this thread will not have the time, finances, connections, etc. to make AuctionZip.com really worth the effort.  But now at least they know about it and can try and it’s especially good for locating larger independent auctions like Garth’s.

Matt is clearly annoyed with Mel but, as Rich expressed, this should be a private matter between the two of them. Neither have ever betrayed my confidence with regard to certain things I have revealed privately, as far as I am aware, and I have respect for both of them.

This is an open forum with the objective of sharing information on movie poster collecting. The more information that is exchanged, the better. I would credit most collectors on this forum to have enough intelligence to locate an auction notification service on the internet should they so wish. In the UK we have equivalents to Auctionzip and you can get to hear about smaller provincial auctions with posters for sale. This is not secret information and if you can be bothered to spend your time, as I do sometimes, attending these sales (it is too risky to buy without inspecting the posters - these auctioneers do not know how to describe or handle posters) it is possible to end up with some reasonable buys. However, if I factor in the time expended/opportunity-cost, it might have been cheaper to have just paid a reliable dealer a retail price.

Sometimes a poster is discussed which I already own. I can relax, unless it turns out I have a reprint. Sometimes a poster is discussed which I want or a great source is revealed which I already knew about. That can be annoying because potential demand/competition is increased. That's just my bad luck. But more often than not I get to see great posters on this forum I haven't seen before and my list of wanted items just grows longer.

Your theory about the "greater good" is severely flawed.  Everyone here has information they protect -- collector friends who are willing to sell, stashes of material, fair priced dealers, connections for Japanese/French/X/Y/Z posters, etc...  I have asked others for help in obtaining certain posters, but I would NEVER ask anyone to give up their sources.  And if I knew their sources, I would NEVER EVER even dream of posting them publicly.  Some people network for an advantage in collecting, some people travel, some people speak foreign languages, and some people scour around for deals.  They are all valid ways of finding what we want at prices we are willing to pay.  People who don't have the time or inclination to search for posters will OF COURSE like it when someone posts that info publicly, just like I would love it if T posted all his connections for choice French posters.  

Once everyone has publicly stated all of their connections, sources, tricks and tips -- then you can talk about "greater good".

Regarding future/current auctions/fixed price items that are in the public domain, I disagree that such information should be squelched.  H and T agree that such information should be allowed to be shared here, and I'd say that about sums it up.

The problem with that logic is that T's French connections are also in the public domain.  All I need to do is learn French and travel there for a few years to piece them together.  But just because I *could* find out most of his connections in theory doesn't mean I'm entitled to them without putting in the leg work.  Somehow because obscure auctions *could* be found by people *if* they put in the time, they think they are entitled to know those tips and tricks without having to do the work.

It is easy to not care until you see something you had your eye on hit the forum. Like I have said before, any exposure adds eyes to items which normally equals a higher price.

It's tough to get a bargain these days. Ebay is so well structured and the searches refined to a point where few if any items get overlooked.
Only those who've picked up real bargains through obscure auctions etc will know the exhilaration of getting a $350 poster for $5. I think a lot of collectors are just resigned to paying the going rate, and perhaps even resent others getting a bargain.

I would qualify that there aren't many epic bargains on eBay anymore (i.e. $1000+ posters for <$100).  However, I consider a $100 poster for $50 a bargain.  Or a $500 poster for $2-300 a bargain.  If you classify it that way I've gotten hundreds of bargains on eBay over the last 6 years and there are plenty more to come.  A couple just yesterday in fact... it just takes patience and a lot of sniffing around.

I consider a $100 poster for $50 a bargain.
For collecting that's okay. If you want to re-sell and make a living, there's not enough in it. Shipping, fees and your own labour costs cancel out the gains. I used to get plenty off ebay and other auctions but they're too competetive now. I look outside the internet mostly.
Some dealers in older posters have huge inventories, but most need to replenish. I missed a nice selection of daybills recently. After seeing the prices some realised I wish I'd paid the seller's price. It's getting tougher to source quality vintage material at cheap prices. Bruce has a good article in his DYK files on the subject.

I really like this guy, spot on Mark.

I used to get many Bargains at these local auctions, but over the last 3-4 years hardly ever......in fact I've been a member of this forum for the last 3-4 years....... eyeroll

All my recent bargains have come from my old contacts, guys who are tinning out their collections, or selling up in some case's. most of these fellows don't like the Bay, and refuse to sell at auction, in fact they will take less for a poster knowing it's going to a collector that will appreciate it, and give it a good home...  luckily there's quite a few of these old boys out there.

How many forum gobshites can bugger this up for me....none woohoo     Bargain hunters will always chase the bargain, I've had two this week, both private sales, and I'm off to view another fellows who is thinning out his collection this weekend.

To each their own, and everyone knows what their own time is worth, but I dream of being able to keystone items like that.
When dealing with top horror and sci-fi pieces I've been very happy buying to make anywhere from 5-25%
But my focus has always been on turnover and not stockpiling, my goal at Cinevent every year is to have at least 90% different inventory from the prior year.

holds true for 3 and 4 figure posters also.
I view it like this: any fund manager would kill to make 5-25% on every single transaction they do.
So if I can buy any poster that I think the will provide a greater return than the best opportunity I have in the market at the same time, I will purchase the poster
(provided I like the poster/image - I always buy with a back of my mind belief that if everything was worthless tomorrow would I still be happy and enjoy what I have).

everything Sean says here is correct, although it may also depend on other factors, like whether you have a brick-and-mortar location (retail or warehouse) that come with costs and/or customers ready to buy a certain % of these more expensive items quickly, reducing your exposure to some degree (just like with stocks where you hedge your bets). if not, you have to pay a lower % for these items

at the same time the further down the price scale you go, the profit margin neccessarily needs to increase exponentially to cover the amount of work and accrued costs of selling such items.

I'm speculating, but I think you guys are buying in a recycled market, where the posters have already been turned over. My guess is you're forced to operate in the 5 - 25% range, and probably have few alternatives. In Aust we've been spoilt with higher margins because the hobby has traditionally been very small. That seems to be changing now that whole collections can be sent over to the US to be sold by companies like you guys run. Five years ago that wasn't the case. The seller had to take what they could get from just a few local buyers.
We're also seeing people like you bidding in our local auctions and driving up the prices. The market is changing and so are the margins, that seems to be certain. The good old days may be over ... Either that or I'll have to start digging through a lot more attics!  ;)

On second thought, this Garth's auction (http://www.auctionzip.com/aflive.html?method=getCatalogLots&catalogref=ATDO8LO2BV) totally blows.  The minimum bids are very high, sometimes way above the typical auction prices.  You can't bid anything LESS than the "suggested" bid, plus you have to pay the much-beloved 20% buyers premium.

The fact that Paul and Matt have screamed bloody murder about others revealing this stupid auction just shows how ridiculous they're acting and how most of these smaller auctions just suck anyway.

$200 minimum bid for this (plus 20% buyers premium)?  It's a $50 poster on Ebay.

(http://www.posternirvana.com/0DNE2/2013-04/TSWLM.jpg)

The best poster of the auction starts at $2800 minimum bid (plus 20% buyer's premium).  This usually sells in the $4-5K range, so it doesn't even start at a bargain price.

20% isn't bad Mel, some over here are up to 24% BP.

Lookin' over results of the 04/12 Garth's auction  - sales results are what you would expect for an auction of this type with high start bids and too much paper that could be classified as low/no demand.

(http://i1285.photobucket.com/albums/a583/jstephenryan/Garths_zpsb2360450.jpg)

 a few diamonds that saved the day from going red were a Double Indemnity and Rebel without a Cause - both went for 3K+.  Other then that, not much went on here.

Something I've noticed from viewing these type auctions is experts and appraisers within the antique/collectible arena have little background or understanding of how to value and price film paper within these auctions.  It's not their business model but I wonder how much more successful they could be cosigning to MPBid/emovie/HA.     

I recently attended a similar type poster auction in Indianapolis and I'll just say I walked away extremely happy - most starting bids were too 'low' and other then a small crowd bidding online, I was '1' of '2' collectors who showed up and on the floor placing bids. 

Here's complete sales results from Garths...

We folks in northern New York State are in for a treat this September. 
The Syracuse Scare-A-Con runs from Sept. 12-15 and the Albany Fantacon, Sept. 14-15.
There will be plenty of poster dealers at Fantacon, which is the first show they have thrown in years.
I'm not sure whether there will be any memorabilia dealers in Syracuse...

The celebrity lists for both shows continues to grow, Syracuse will be headlining Sara Karloff and Linda Blair amongst others.
Here's their list of guests: http://scareacon.com/celebrities-2/ (http://scareacon.com/celebrities-2/)

In Albany, 160 miles east, the return of Fantacon is going to have a bit of a Night of the Living Dead reunion with John Russo (writer) and some of the stars, including Barbara and Johnny (Judith O'Dea and Russ Streiner)..."They're coming to get you, Barbara."  Guest list here: http://fantacon.com/guests.php (http://fantacon.com/guests.php)

I'll update as things change.  More celebrities will be added.
Should be wicked good fun at both.

As mentioned on MOPO, Christie's Vintage Poster auction is May 23.  Try to avoid the first half of the catalog or you'll end up hooked on ludicrously-outstanding travel and other advertising posters.

Here's the link to the catalog. (http://christies.scene7.com/s7/brochure/flash_brochure.jsp?company=Christies&sku=CSK8843_SaleCat&config=Christies/eCat_210x267_Full&locale=en&image=Christies/CSK8843_SaleCat)

Sadly, Christie's is selling a stone cold ridiculous "signed" fake Pulp Fiction.  I wrote to the auction runner and complained about it:

It's going to be an eight hour (!) live auction with no breaks(!).  Can you imagine sitting through that?

Here's the 24 sheet (!) for Carter the Great (http://hollywoodposterauction.com/auctions/18/lots/browse?q=carter%20the%20great), reserve at $1,000:

I reckon the prices are steep too, however I spotted a TWA New York poster (http://hollywoodposterauction.com/session_lots/10499/show/TWA_NEW_YORK) with reserve of $200 that I think could fetch $1K-$2K. A slightly older (better) variant fetched around $10K at Christies  (http://www.christies.com/lotfinder/posters-signage-advertising/david-klein-new-york-fly-twa-5546219-details.aspx)and David Pollacks site (http://www.dpvintageposters.com/cgi-local/content.cgi?sc=132) has a lesser version for around $3K

The hollywoodposterauction one says size is 27x41 but it should be 25x40, however it says "Re-release:No".

The images in the auctions are not good and the descriptions are not good either. I guess nothing in the description differentiates the poster as an original or a reprint. Maybe it is a reprint? If that was the case, that auction item sounds misleading.

Some people say they are going to have a major auction, and then Heritage keeps knocking them out of the park.
Went to look for a particular item in the upcoming July auction to see how a piece looks after restoration and came across these two amazing jumbo lobbies:

Frankenstein (Universal, 1931). Insert (14" X 36").
At last this great poster has surfaced! After 82 years of lying dormant, the Monster has finally arrived in the form of this amazing and stunning insert. For years, collectors have been searching for the lost poster sizes on this immortal and legendary horror classic but to date, only a few one sheets, a single six sheet, a partial half sheet and lobby cards have surfaced! This is the only confirmed insert poster for the film. And while Frankenstein was not the first horror film from Universal, it is the most famous. The studio had produced a number of horror related films based on important novels, including The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923), The Phantom of the Opera (1925), and Dracula (1931), and with the success of each film, the studio looked for additional properties they could adapt for the screen. The stage play of Frankenstein by Peggy Webling was quickly secured and the film went into production. James Whale was given the directorial duties and Boris Karloff the pivotal role of the Monster. The rest as they say, is the stuff of legend, as the film went on to become an international sensation and is still regarded as the most important film in the annals of Universal horror. The borders on this poster had been trimmed at one time. However, the trimming was just up to the edge of the art. In the top edge there was a slight trim just into the upper yellow band. The borders were replaced as was a small chip out of the upper left corner that just went into the dark brown background and the edge of the blue band. The poster also had a few very small tears. There was one that extended into the "F" of the title, as well as three additional tiny tears into the brown background on the left side. The poster was never folded. However, it does have a slight crease that runs horizontally through Dwight Frye and Edward Van Sloan's credits. There are two other minor horizontal creases, both in the Monster's head. There was a bit of color touchup to some stress lines in the lower blue band by Universal's credit. There was some very minor color correction done to the Monster's portrait, as there appears to have been some slight fading. Yet it is extremely hard to accurately determine, due to this being the only known example. There has been some slight bit of color retouch done to the lower areas of the poster as well. And although this is the only confirmed insert known to exist, there are two known similar Australian daybills, both done in a different layout and color. This extreme rarity may never come to market again so seize this chance to acquire this while you can. Rolled, Fine+

Interesting tidbit about the daybills - also wonder where and how this was found (hopefully not in Haggard's garage) and what the estimate will be?

Yes I was aware of their existence - what I was getting at was the "both done in a different layout and color" - I took this to mean a style A + B daybill but after rereading appears HA was just stating they are the same but different to the insert artwork...

I have just returned from Christies auction held this afternoon. I think it was their most uninspiring and uneventful movie poster sale in 18 years. There were just 15 - 20 attendees and almost 50% of the lots were unsold, presumably because of the ridiculously high guide prices. Perhaps all their time and effort was put into the morning session when a wonderful collection of travel posters were auctioned.

Craziest price was £3000 ($4534) plus 25% buyer's premium for a Breakfast at Tiffany's lobby card (Scene Card No 6).

Maybe Christies buyers have finally figured out they can buy the exact same posters for less than half the price by spending five minutes on the Internet.

No danger of that happening. I use the Jungle Book one sheet, which features in every auction, as a measure of informed research. Today's hammer price was £1200 ($1812) + 25% BP.

Hollwood Poster Auction starting at 2PM EDT (Eastern US time) today and will go on for seven hours(!).  Some of the stuff is overpriced and probably won't sell, but some stuff, especially some of the vintage posters, is worth checking out.  I've got three bids on some oldies (don't bid on those!):

Live Bidding system here:

http://live.auctagon.com/

Online catalog here:

http://hollywoodposterauction.com/auctions/18/lots/browse

If you do bid, don't forget to factor in the much-beloved 20% BP and 6% Ohio sales tax (apparently they're collecting it).

When this poster originally was auctioned in May of this year, it sold for a mere $3000.00.

So even if it sold for the current, minimum opening bid of $6K, the original sales price will double.  ;D

As one of the insane bidders on the mummy piece originally when it closed for $3k I did a lot of research both myself and with the help of some other helpful members of this forum trying to find out when it was possibly printed and true origins to no real avail. The results put it, though still an early poster, likely not from 1933. A quote from a conversation with the original seller "We could not find the exact date of the poster release. We do know it was issued sometime around 1936.".

The original photos before slight editing from, insert whomever you wish to blame here for not knowing when to lay off the contrast and saturation, had much flatter colors and looks a little more washed out. Frankly I think the original images make it look better than the one posted by HA. Not a terribly large fan of how it as done artwise either but a mummy is a mummy is a mummy.

Agree here.

The added (and unnecessary) saturation makes it look more like a reproduced print, rather than a (vintage) poster from the period.

Added saturation is not needed, IMO; it can give a false sense of a poster's true color and imagery; THE MUMMY poster image on HA is the photo from the Palestinian auction / website... but with added "perks," is all.

To me, it's best to show any poster as they actually are.. dings, bumps, faded colors (or not) etc notwithstanding.  ;)

I know Rosa said she is lusting after some non-Bogie pieces in the upcoming Heritage auction, but I look at a piece as beautiful as this and think... Damnnnnnn that's sweet.

(http://dyn2.heritagestatic.com/lf?set=path%5B1%2F0%2F4%2F6%2F8%2F10468917%5D%2Csizedata%5B450x2000%5D&call=url%5Bfile%3Aproduct.chain%5D)


Sean. You are so right. Beautiful. But for some reason Bogie's face here doesnt do it for me. But this poster is beautiful. Agree.

The non-bogie one I really like... as in ''really''...''really'' like is this other one.
I think the  artwork quality is just exquisite. Though I somehow think this looks more like a Brini type of poster.

ok so the HA catalog arrived. 

Wish I could be as excited as Steve Martin in 'The Jerk' and scream "the new 'catalogs' here! the new 'catalogs' here!" but truth be told, this is not one of my favorite HA sig auctions.

Only a handful of 3 / 6 sheets and CGC lobbies and some of the sci-fi's I was hoping for are non-existent.  Not to imply this isn't the usual kickass HA auction, just not so much for me.    I'll possibly hold off til Sunday PM and pick up a few items in the back of the catalog - sort of the way it's been going for me with a lot of these auctions over the last couple years.

The Wolf Man Italian is really sweet but will likely go on the high end or more of the estimate listed at 10K - cool 'Bullitt' 24sh but estimated at 5-6K - one for the completest I guess...

thanks for mentioning this!

by sheer happenstance, i'm going to be in turin for some days the weekend before before those auctions start...perhaps i'll get to see some individual posters displayed on the friday, that is if they display them.

now as for the italian part, i don't speak a lick of it, though it appears they do have catalogs as they offer annual (http://www.sancarloaste.it/Foto/Pdf/8m.pdf) subscriptions, so perhaps an email is best for a single one?

Chris. the catalog (nor the website) gives an estimate for Lot 225.

4 pages are devoted to the Bird, what it is made of (lead), its provenance and info on the film, without ever giving that dollar figure for the statuette.

wouldn't surprise me

while investments can be made at some level in collectibles, reality is that the average collector of any type of collectible doesn't have the business asset truly needed to be able to achieve profits in general: a solid customer list and their own website, mailing list or catalog to be able to sell without going to someone else who gets a commission (sometimes quite a high commission) and that doesn't even take into account market forces that work against any investor in any market.

Universal horror paper and maybe to some extent 50s horror-sf has suffered considerably since the financial meltdown and the Kerry Haggard scandal with both factors dovetailing in at the same time in 2008/2009, while at the same time lots of pre-1960 paper has diminishing values due to generational aspects of collecting. Even lots of my own buys (lots of them) have turned out to be poor "bank accounts" because of a reducing market in that area, or an overabundance of such material being offered in a small number of venues and when you consider that I am in perfect position to be an actual investor in collectibles due to my wealth of knowledge, longtime customer list and ability to sell with no external costs, it becomes very obvious how poor collectibles as investment can be

Interesting story about the one for Jimi Hendrix: "A Jimi Hendrix "Pinnacle" concert poster
The first printing of a poster designed by John Van Hamersveld for Hendrix's February 10, 1968 concert at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Van Hamersveld was an important figure in the Southern California psychedelic community who also designed surf posters, including the iconic poster for Bruce Brown's The Endless Summer (1966). Contemporary artist Shepard Fairey modeled one of the images in his "Obey Giant" series on this poster, and later wrote about Van Hammersveld's design, "It's an illustration with the perfect balance of designed restraint and idiosyncratic, organic style. The image also, though highly stylized, conveys the essence of Jimi Hendrix" (I Heart Design: Remarkable Graphic Design Selected by Designers, Rockport: 2011).
18 7/8 x 27 in."

Heritage is auctioning hand-painted movie posters for charity.  If I'm reading this correctly, these auctions will continue for several months.

http://fineart.ha.com/c/search-results.zx?N=50+793+794+792+2088+4294946150

Description: The Lomasney Collection consists of over 800 hand-painted film posters originally displayed in the The Royal Hawaiian Theater in Honolulu from 1930’s to 1980’s. Painted by artist John J. Lomasney, and spanning 50 years of cinematic history, the posters were called a “treasure trove of art” by the New York Post. The Lomasney Collection was acquired by tennis legend John McEnroe and displayed in his Soho, NYC gallery. Mr. McEnroe donated this astounding collection to Lifebeat, Music Fights HIV/AIDS to support their HIV prevention efforts. Each large-scale piece is completely unique and painted in gouache on 44 by 28-inch art board. Many incorporate original studio film stills. These one-of-a-kind works of art are available to collectors and movie buffs alike in online auctions opening at 10PM CT on the 1st Thursday of the month and closing 10PM CT on the 4th Thursday of the month. For further information, contact Stephanie O’Barr, StephanieO@HA.com or 214-409-1807.

Heritage is auctioning hand-painted movie posters for charity.  If I'm reading this correctly, these auctions will continue for several months.

http://fineart.ha.com/c/search-results.zx?N=50+793+794+792+2088+4294946150

Description: The Lomasney Collection consists of over 800 hand-painted film posters originally displayed in the The Royal Hawaiian Theater in Honolulu from 1930’s to 1980’s. Painted by artist John J. Lomasney, and spanning 50 years of cinematic history, the posters were called a “treasure trove of art” by the New York Post. The Lomasney Collection was acquired by tennis legend John McEnroe and displayed in his Soho, NYC gallery. Mr. McEnroe donated this astounding collection to Lifebeat, Music Fights HIV/AIDS to support their HIV prevention efforts. Each large-scale piece is completely unique and painted in gouache on 44 by 28-inch art board. Many incorporate original studio film stills. These one-of-a-kind works of art are available to collectors and movie buffs alike in online auctions opening at 10PM CT on the 1st Thursday of the month and closing 10PM CT on the 4th Thursday of the month. For further information, contact Stephanie O’Barr, StephanieO@HA.com or 214-409-1807.

Not that it means anything but the $40,000 to $80,000 is quite a wide estimate on the Dracula 3 sheet

Is this 2nd Cimarron copy also from the Berwick stash?!

Looking good.. but I agree.. that is an awfully wide estimate range for Drac.

And as a side, Artistic, note... what did the original artist do (or not do) to Bela's right eye on the 3sh? It looks swollen shut, or worse  :o

IMHO, a total lack of better detail paid to Bela, in the 3/4 profile..... nono

The title of the auction is called, "then and now", but the auction items are a bit of a train wreck when combined.  You have some cool vintage advertising posters interspersed with very recent silkscreen prints and autographed items.  I own a few of the recent silkscreen posters.  So I am interested in the results, but I don't get how they have a year-old Durieux right next to posters from the 60s and earlier?  And how does a Black Keys concert poster by Malleus fit into the theme of the auction?

I guess like any auction, people will only bid on what interests them, but this one is all over the place thematically.

I just explained I know how to get it cheaper if anyone is interested. I don't own the poster in question, well, one of them I do, but that's it. So it doesn't bother me, just thought I would point it out to potentially save someone some money.

I wouldn't call it a "train wreck" at all.  The eclectic variety makes it different from other auctions, and there may be some people whose preferred genre is new prints, and another who prefers more vintage items, etc., and they may check out different genres that they wouldn't have seen had the auction been items with a similar theme.

Realart must have just grabbed whatever pic they had lying around.

Or how about the 1951 Realart RR OS for Frankenstein? The head image is that of Karloff, from Bride, with some rather quick touch ups and shading to his forehead & hairline (they added the hair back somewhat):

Erm, no mate, if that was my poster (which it is NOT) why would I say I could help someone get it cheaper?
That don't make no sense. You would link to the cheaper poster instead, right?
Also, I am not undercutting anyone just to be clear as I do not have these posters.

I do understand the phrase and the context of this thread, thanks - no harm trying to help someone though. I don't gain anything by that. It's the same as someone else saying "Hey, the estimate on x piece is a little high - you can buy it now for less than that". It wouldn't go in the dealers thread either as I am not dealing in the said poster. There is always going to be a little crossover in posts in any forum, so I am sorry this offended you.

Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: CSM on March 08, 2014, 12:40:35 PM
Here is the Heritage description (I was wrong about there being 2 I guess):

This is the only copy of this highly desirable one sheet known to exist in the world. This stone litho beauty, featuring both Cortez and Daniels, showed pinholes, as well as some tears and chipping in the image area, credits, and left border. There was a paper chip into the bottom left corner within the white field only. In addition, approximately one and three quarter inches of missing white paper in the right border and one inch in the top border have been replaced.

So the explanation I have is that the perspective in the photo is wrong - what we're seeing is the David Manners poster (Kismet?) ON TOP of the Falcon with most of the Falcon intact underneath...
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Dread_Pirate_Mel on March 08, 2014, 12:48:15 PM
Yes, I just posted that picture to show that the Berwick posters were not found in pristine condition.

A partial Kismet one sheet poster is on top of that Maltese Falcon:

http://www.emovieposter.com/gallery/inc/archive_image.php?id=11470867

The black/yellow stylized "S" in the middle left is the beginning of the word "Skinner" (for Otis Skinner).

I don't think the Kismet one sheet was recovered and was taken off the underlying Maltese Falcon.  Can't find a record of it ever having been sold for that matter.

Not "misleading" at all.  See my prior post.  A picture is worth a thousand words, which is why sellers rarely post the "pre-restoration" pics since the original condition was so bad.

As Rosa posted previously, and i *just* saw that Christie's set up a page to view all the lots. Here's that link (better late than never)  :D
Per the site, the dates look to have changed, with the online auction running from the 13-24th of June.

Matt, this exhibition has posters from the early '70s (perhaps even some fromthe late '60s) up thru the last few years.

Here are 3 from the exhibit from the early-mid '70s:

O.K. This may take some explaining in print, so bare with me...


At the Vectis Auction. The Auctioneer, would say, "I can start this at £5". (so you would think they had a proxy bid of at least £5) So anyone who raised their hand, the Auctioneer would say "£10" which would be the next bid along, but they didn't have the first bid!!  so whom ever raised their hand should have been given the opening bid of £5, but this was not the case, and this happened with all the lots....

Great for the consignor, but not so good for the bidder.

My Brother and I both thought all bar two lots had sold, as they actually said on those two," I'll have to pass the lot". In actual fact almost 50% never sold as they were using this "Jump a bid up" trick.. it seemed like they sold, but unless someone actually bid, it hadn't, and bare in mind the higher priced lots they made more of a jump on.

Clear as Mud...

Well, something is kicking off over at Vectis. 

Of the James Bond items, over 50% have been withdrawn.  Six of my already placed nine bids have disappeared.  I have asked that my remaining three are cancelled too.

Post by: Simes on September 23, 2014, 03:10:46 PM
I see.

Ok.  So clearly not a Vectis problem.

That said, while on this subject, I do hope Vectis sort their site out in terms of bids one has placed and where they are in the pecking order on the Your Bids page.  The problem I am experiencing is that;

1. I place a bid which earns me winning bid status.
2. A mail comes through from Vectis saying I have been outbid
3. So my natural reaction is to go to the My Bids page to increase the bid.
4. But no mention on this page lets me know which item has been outbid on.
5. So I go to the Auction page in question and of course there is no mention on that page as to current bid - just the expected outcome which could just as easily be surpassed by now.
6. So then I go back to the email to find the Item no. and thence back to the Auction page to that number and then try to remember what bid I placed and how far north I need to up the stakes.

Currently, it is very hard work.  Currently, it seems the better idea is to just wait until the day and hope the Vectis and / or Sale-room software is up to snuff.

Or, am I missing a trick?
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: CSM on September 23, 2014, 03:12:08 PM

Yep - you have to bid $1,000,000 per poster to ensure you win it   :D

Not been around here for a while - very busy with life and whatnot.

After speaking with Paul, I thought it only proper I reply directly.
What Paul stated is correct; there are still some good items in the sale though.

As said in previous posts, I can and do advise Vectis with regards to their website and everything else I have no direct control over.
I am going to pass on comments and feedback to the management as it is very important.

Can you please email me with all your thoughts, comments, feedback and anything else: adam@vectis.co.uk
If you do that I will forward all on to the management.

Good point Vick. Not that I buy at Christies every day, but I don't think it is the same, the low estimate is not necessaraly the minimum bid. I seem to recall that the Martinati's Casablanca auctioned last year had a  minimum bid of 6k, the low estimate was around 20k...

http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/22196/

Wow.. is all I can say.. costumes, props. memorabilia... and so many posters up on the walls that were all on display.

I asked and was permitted to flip thru a completed and leather bound final script for GWTW, that David Selznick presented to screenwriter, Sydney Howard.

Plus... being up close and personal to the piano from Casablanca as well as the lion costume from The Wiz of OZ, a costume from Gilda and wardrobe from River of No Return (MMonroe).

Was a great afternoon.  thumbsup.gif

Grief - even with my compete lack of comparative knowledge, this represents a monster collection.

I am surprised a Bond film even sullies all that is contained therein.  (Dr No lobby card)

I am however, very surprised as to why this is being sold as one item, one collection.  This can only appeal to the dealer who will break it down for resale as opposed to 'someone who wakes up one day and decides he needs an entire film memorabilia collection, and who also has a spare $8m knocking about'.

If an auction house is operating this, why are they not advocating a piece by piece sale?  Surely this would represent better $sales all round.

Thoughts?

I'm thinking Morrie told Profiles that it was an "all in deal;" no discussion about selling it piecemeal.

PIH could take it or leave it, and they bit and agreed.

Wonderful that they've published a complete list.  It'll be fun going though seeing how much of what I thought I had that was "rare" isn't so much.  A great resource to have, even if I'll never get close to any of what's in it.

That said, if anybody would loan me the money I'm totally good for it.  I could pay you back...later.

Peter.....can you post the link to where the complete list is...I've been looking for it starting about two weeks ago and figured they would publish it eventually!!....Pretty Please :)

Yes Morrie is one of the best....I sold him some lobby cards that are in that collection....I was talking with him on the phone after his last auction and he said he really loved buying "dead scene" cards because they often showcased the unsung character actors of early Hollywood....He was just as thrilled with them as he was with any other paper on the title...We even talked about incomplete sets from early 1930's films that he just never could complete....we found out that he only has 4 lobby cards from Check and Double Check (the 1930 AMOS N/ ANDY film) ...and that I had 3 of the other cards he needed to nearly complete the set....and the gentleman that he is...he didn't even try to get me to sell them...

The best part is we have a serious rivalry going for silent Buster Keaton lobby cards.."the really good stuff" he calls them....we have gone head to head in bidding wars many times...

You have to remember that Coys' are not catering to the average savvy collector on this forum but rather well-heeled and successful punters who, on the same day, may be dropping tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds on buying a vintage car. Why would any such person be bothered to trawl the internet for a better price for a poster if it takes them minutes (or seconds) at work to make and cover the additional cost? The bonus is that they can take the poster home with them the same day.

Yes. That was quite clearly the feeling there today. Lovely cars. The posters were relegated to a corner.

I only had a quick look at the posters. Must confess that the cars looked more appealing  to me.

Yeah I thought about this when some of the cars up for auction at the end...  Mimosas and caviar whats another 1000 pounds after dropping 700K on a Ferrari...

But the irony is that this sale was advertised on the forums for the posters when it is clearly out of bounds for the savvy collector...

I agree Charlie. On the other hand....i saw a couple of John Ford posters that doubt will sell for that huge price. No BP ...no shipping costs and no added tax for UK buyers. ..so...i would not disregard the standard (UK/buyer/collector)... you never know. But yes..Their focus is on Ms and Mr Wallet

I just read this on the Coy's site.. I'm assuming it applies to any and all who bid on their items?

Premium:

Buyers are reminded that a 15% Buyer Premium is payable on the first £30,000/ €50,000 and 10% on any amount thereafter of the final Hammer Price. VAT, at the standard rate, is payable on the Premium.

Preliminary painting by Dan Goozee for Star Wars is one of the items that will be up for auction.

That Star Wars is super cool... but if it's an original painting why would it have credits? 
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: erik1925 on May 04, 2015, 10:12:32 PM
The original painting (and the verso) are the smaller images above the poster image and it has no credits. Look again.

The one with credits was probably a sample OS run off to see how it all worked.

Larger images of the painting:

Looked through both quickly and am still mopping up drool from the floor. Need to think about postponing the wedding to free the cash up.

Was a little surprised on some of the estimates made on lobby card sets as a few sets or multiple cards for a single title as a lot were estimated at the price singles cards have been going for lately. Others seem like they are expecting record prices and rightly so seeing he condition of some.

Agreed. I collect them. But seeing all those lobbies has helped me to appreciate even more more their artwork.
I also want to see if this auction will have an impact on HA's final sales this July. They have some competition.

Didn't you kids get the 1st catalog....it's a pip too..it's been on eBay here or there for around $10
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Profiles-In-History-Morris-Everett-Movie-Posters-Catalog-/261914384638?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cfb5058fe (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Profiles-In-History-Morris-Everett-Movie-Posters-Catalog-/261914384638?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cfb5058fe)

Anyway...from what I've heard... There will be tons of bidders coming out of the woodworks....as well as institutions and dealers....the material is far too rare and organized and well advertised....

There are some things to consider...Morrie was an avid bidder so it's nice to get a crack at HIS best material without him competing...for me it's the greatest relief because we get into some nasty bidding wars constantly...and now I get to go crazy...i am actually getting to raid the archive of my greatest competitor...and he just smiles....I fucking love it!!!!  sm1

I spoke to Susanne at Profiles and she said there will be 6 Everett auctions total....so you can search the PDF file that Dan Strebin concocted....there is a ton of really great stuff that is NOT in this auction....so ....there is plenty of fun to come!!!

Heritage is gearing up for another great July auction and there are some great rare lobbies already on their site ....they  finally added many new photos today!!...so maybe there will be some real steals after Profiles and Emovieposter remove some $$$ from the hobby...

A final thought...there is a massive amount of great material hitting the market this year...there will be a lot of great deals....keep your eyes peeled...
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar

Very true Tait. Shame the pdf catalogue with the full listing is just a listing without photos. Though i appreciate that it is really a mammoth task putting together such a vast collection in one single document.

Good luck everyone. Happy bidding.

I was just thinking over the weekend what the impact to prices there might be with a lot of Dwight's stuff and Morrie's all hitting the market at the same time in addition to the normal signature auctions. Maybe the hobby can absorb it all. The higher tax bracketed folks are going to be the majority of the buyers anyway I suppose.

Not really an 'event' as such... Well, it might all be a matter of perspective.

But it seems http://www.atthemovies.co.uk/ has had a makeover; a new shop, a new site and an opening event with some characters you probably wouldn't want around your Christmas table.

Fair play though, I am not sure how she managed to get anyone to pop along to the opening of a shop...  Maybe they all share the same hair salon.

Ah yes.  The 'one-off' poster.  I did note that as well.

But fair play to them all.  I am not sure they could get past the fake tans, breast implants and Marcel waves to realise that perhaps a film marketing company, in the interests of a film's success, would understand mass marketing would mean that more than one poster was ever produced.

Bless.

I know Alaster also, and he seems to try his best, but my last items took 6 weeks+ to get here. It seems they are keen to get you to bid and take your money, but getting stuff to you, they don't give a toss then. My last lot of items, when they arrived, there was two missing, one of which was sent out after I'd rang them, the other still missing...  A fellow member from the U.S. here,  bid and was told they wouldn't post to him, luckily I got his lot sent with mine after waiting, I'm tempted to say weeks, but months covers it better.

When I spoke to Alaster, and another member of their team on separate occasions about the problems, I was told it's up to me to sort out getting my lots I'd won....  When I explained that people from all over the world not just the U.K. may want a postal option. I was told they are not bothered as it's never affected their sales figures, and they are there to sell, and are not a postal service!!

The descriptions are very vague, so if you want to bid on a few items, it's a right chew on, and it's slow getting the right info. So I'm afraid unless there's something I must have at any cost, I'll give them a miss, anyway they won't even miss my meagre input of funds...

Interesting, thanks Paul.

I'm hardly mr money bags, so perhaps they don't care, but my money stays in my pocket when I see vague descriptions, no photos and lack of clarity on shipping costs/methods...it's too much of a gamble in this day and age. If they want to stay a local auction house, that's fine, but seems a shame for their consignees.

Tob, I'm guessing if you turn up in person all will be fine, but for us long distance fellows... eyeroll


Paul, if it's working for you stick with it. The one thing I have noticed with them is the estimates are getting higher and higher.... not to bad if your selling with them, no good if your after a bargain, or even just a good deal.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: originalcinemaposters on August 27, 2015, 02:20:51 AM
Estimates dont mean a thing really its the price realised that matters, and my last lots were a real mixed bag, some below, some in the estimate and some above. I would let estimates put you off as other than one or two bits mine have no reserve and thats the same for a lot of the lots

I do know that Paul, but when they start putting estimates up, it does make a lot of non-seasoned collectors think, I'll go that bit more. The two main tricks Auction house use before there's any bidding are, the low "come and get me", to hope there's a bidding war, and the high "it must be worth more that I thought", so people bid more. Even if they can just eek one more bid on a lot, they are up. Auction houses are not there to help the collector, just take money from them, as is clearly how Ewbanks are thinking. I don't fault them for that, but you would think they would have some gratitude to those who pay their wage's. I believe shop-keepers, and good Auction houses call it "customer care".

Also the trouble with the High estimate is, 90% of auction houses will only drop say 20% below the bottom estimate, so they are on a winner either way. if you get my drift.

Tales of woe, to be sure.

I have only bought once from them and that was via telephone bidding and I am local enough to swan over and pick the old blighter up.

If that response of 'we don't care, we aren't a postal service' is true, then it does seem to be very much against the grain of advertising their wares via several worldly conglomerate auction sites such as Saleroom.  Clearly a website can be accessed anywhere in the world, but equally clearly, being on Saleroom is essentially saying they will service the world.  Which in my estimation, includes posting.

How else would one go about it?  Have a courier pick it up from the auction house, unwrapped and unprotected.  Toss it in the back of his van.  Get it to their shipping depot whereby someone will pack what is left into a tube - and then ship it??

Maybe I am blessed only with an experience of Heritage and EMP, both of whom do stand-up shipping.  So, is the above how it works in other smaller auction houses?  "You can win it, but then you're on your own."

That is exactly how it works Simon. One has to contact a third party to pick the said items up, take them to their place of work, package them and then send them off.  Alaster contacted the third party for me last time, but to be honest it turned out worse, and I'm still a poster from a lot down... The Third party gets your invoice and packs to that. hence they missed one of mine off and lost another..  They can also see what you've paid. It's not quite the ticket.  If it was worth the 6 hour journey down and 6 hours back, I may do it, but that's all cost on to what ones pays, not to mention time.

You, sir, are a standup guy.

Just be there for pickup early, Sept. 3 -- before old man Ewbanks opens shop.
Take all the posters. I know I will win them all.
Ship to me COD and forget we ever spoke.

Oh, and bring something persuasive...

Reading this has been most helpful but left me a bit disappointed. I was hoping Ewbanks could become like EMP. We need a good auction site that knows how to handle posters in the UK.

Yes. Not sure why they insist on this format. It is most unhelpful. I have not been able to  use the "search" tab so I had to go page by page. That said, I was going to do that anyway but it would have been most helpful having a better navigation tool as I wanted to identify if they were auctioning "my " paper.

Do note the emphasis on "my" as it will be "mine" hehe >:D

As written and posted by Morrie, on MOPO, last night, re: his Cleveland auction and general results, from this past weekend:

"Another successful auction #23 grossed $211,000 before after sales.

Movie stills sales especially strong with a very low pass rate. Convention was only moderately successful and some dealers did quite poorly. Future events will probably rejoin Cinevent.

Great idea with lots of planning and heavy advertising but very poor local attendance. Socially great as old friends saw each other after several years but financially only a few benefited.

We will keep trying.

The Internet and getting older does not help conventions."

I emailed these folks yesterday, and got a response, re the Reservoir Dogs poster, just this morning. Seems the poster is being withdrawn as there is some question about it:

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for your kind message in bringing this to my attention - I actually received a similar email from someone else over the weekend so have already been looking into it.

It was consigned by a well respected dealer who confirmed they purchased the poster when the film came out. Nevertheless, it does seem to be cropped and I don't like to sell anything where doubt has been cast over it so I am withdrawing the poster from the sale.

Thanks again,
Caitlin

If this site is primarily for fine art sales, I'm not sure I understand this logic for an industry so heavily invested in establishing clear and complete provenance.

From: Paddle8 About Page (https://paddle8.com/about/)

Our Auctions

Our auctions showcase a dynamic range of collectible works — from museum-quality contemporary art and design to fine jewelry and design objects with cult followings — all vetted by experienced specialists.

We invite individual collectors to consign their works to sell at auction or via private sales to our global network of buyers. Because we value your comfort and discretion, we never disclose results or publish sales in price databases.

In addition, we partner with celebrated cultural institutions and international tastemakers on special auctions to help collectors access the extraordinary, discover new passions, and make a difference through philanthropy.

Unfortunately it is Paddle8's standard policy not to publish sale results - this is one of the key reasons consignors are drawn to selling with us. It makes more sense for Fine Art - not so much with posters, but it's our policy across the board I'm afraid.

Paddle 8

Well - they are crap.

I was interested in the French Dr No petite which had a starting price of $1800.  It was based in the UK.  Their 'model' has the works based at the sellers' sites and only the photos and a bit of blurb are posted up about the item.

After I decided not to bother about the poster, there was an ensuing conversation asking after the details that were just NOT forthcoming during the auction, and only really available after much pressing for information.

In their advert, they said, tape marks to all four corners, surface paper loss in the bottom right corner, linen backed with no restoration.

My questions, and their answers today, are below.

- Has it been de-acidified and bleached prior to linen-backing?
We purchased it in this state from a person who had bought it as is himself from Christies a while ago. So we cannot confirm its treatment prior to linen-backing. However the paper looks stable, with no foxing, etc and the colours are strong.

- Is it definitely backed on linen rather than paper?
It is backed on paper and then linen (as is standard).

- Is there a linen border around the poster, and if so, what size?

No - the linen has been trimmed to the poster

- Is there any actual tape residue remaining on the poster or only staining?
No, we cannot see any tape residue, just staining

- Please confirm location and dimensions of paper loss
There is paper-loss in the following margin areas:
Top left approx. 1 x 1/2 an inch
Top right approx. 1 1/2 x 1/2 an inch
Middle left approx. 2 x 1/3 inch
Middle right approx. 2 x 1/3 inch
Bottom right approx. 3 x 1/2 inch

None of this was in their blurb.  And none of it was forthcoming prior to auction, even subsequent to questioning.

I am quite frankly disgusted.  Thank God there is a Bruce in the world...

Question, is paper backing and then linen backing 'standard'?  For my part, I have never heard of this.

I feel compelled to put this in the Bad experiences column.

Cheers.

I'm thinking they mean that it was the "standard" backing practice to have a sheet of Japanese Masa paper between the poster and linen.

Went there yesterday. Got in to see the posters (and those Gorgeous cars). Anyway. Not sure if there's much point in what they do with the posters as these are left in a corner, hardly visible. And they have just a handful. That said, i guess that it was neatly done given the limitations.

All posters were for you Sir (Bond) and Mike (Undead)  all Star Wars and James Bond.

Of course it is easy to get bids when you start at $1 with no reserve OR buyers premiums.

Like I said, I think they are overpriced.  Plus, a lot of them are not that nice.  Rare, but not nice.  Also, Hungarian posters are a little bit of a niche market.  Not a lot of people into them.  Finally, there is the issue of size, at least for me.

I did win a couple 3, though.  Right size and right price, imo.

Well, they can't do that when there's a secret reserve.  
It's no secret what many auction houses do.
For the record, I wasn't implying your site.  

I'm just curious what auction site you're talking about. It's not like there are many movie poster auctions around
you have HA, MPE, EMP & my own MPB

are you talking 'actual shill bidding' or are you talking 'bidding against the book' (aka, absentee bids left by bidders to be executed by the auction house as bidding continues)

can you post actual examples of shill bidding the way that one of our members (Zac) has researched ShutterIslandOVMP here on APF?

My experience of auction rooms in the UK is that some auctioneers clearly identify all or some lots which pass and others do not. If an auctioneer has proxy bids on his book, the highest of which is still below the reserve, he will start the bidding off and up to that maximum. If there is no interest from the room or the internet he brings the hammer down. It may appear that the lot has been won by someone but the auctioneer was simply bidding on behalf of the absentee bidder(s) as instructed and the lot did not sell.

I got three of the Hungarian posters. Roman Holiday, the Fencing poster, and Battle of Algiers. I'm sure I overpaid for the Roman Holiday poster, but it's one of my favorite films and I have a soft spot for this school of design.

This was the way Sotheby's and Christie's would do it in the U.S. as well, when I regularly attended their auctions in the 1990s. The auctioneer would slam down the hammer and, at the same exact time, in a whisper, say "Pass" (those from England said "Pahhss").

I hated that practice then, and hope they abandoned it.

at Profiles in History, when an item passes they say "paddle #XXXX" and it is obvious after a few passed lots that said numbers (not always the same from one lot to the next) are to identify unsold lots. Profiles doesn't get too many unsold lots - probably hovers around a few percent at most. I looked at the unsold lots from the Morrie auction and there was a low amount and it was obvious why some lots did not sell [opening bid too high]

Heritage just notes the item has passed and it is still available on HA.com and if you are watching the live auction, there is no mistake that the item did not sell.
I also know that Grey doesn't take very many lots with reserves anymore. He wants to sell the stuff and get the commission.

The images are hard to view on a mobile device as they are darkish and small and is not possible to stretch screen bigger to see the images, need to click each item to assess whether it looks good.  I don't buy on film title but the art but I can't easily see all the posters. It probably is better on desktop PCs, just mobile for me is too difficult. I don't have the patience required to open every thumbnail to enlarge it to see the art. However, good luck to bidders and sellers.

When on page 6 (for example), searching for Clint, nothing came up.  This was duplicated with Jill, Rathbone, and others,

When on Page 1, the search function brought up examples of all the above.

Have just had a look at this discussion....  I am not a visitor to this forum, or discussion group, or however one should describe this method of chatting, but;

1. There is no doubting that the images could be a Lot better than what is currently on Invaluable.  Politeness aside, (even if this really is an issue in shouty forums spaces), a suggested norm for an image that depicts as is, is still a long way from the current presentation.  Especially for the quality titles on offer for what may be the Excalibur inaugural sale.

2.  Mopo is a really strange forum...!  It might have started in 1995, but has it ever been updated Since 1995?

Come on Ade buddy.  There may or may not be some tacticians in evidence, but this is still a long way from the Cineart shop and site you operated in times past.

Wishing you luck and progress nonetheless.

Mis-described in which sense?  Better than in actuality, or worse?

I saw in the Invaluable listing that there were only a couple of lots that appeared to have sale prices against them.  I was left wondering if the site was not updated correctly.  So, did all those lots without a price, or just £0 against them, not sell?

Wonder if even the cost of the venue was covered in this case then.  But from an absentee bidding point of view and internet bidding, the images did nothing to encourage interest or faith.

Hope all turns out better next time.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: marklawd on May 30, 2016, 07:16:42 AM
It was described as a UK poster. I'm guessing 60-80% of lots passed - there was almost zero interest in the autographs. There also seemed to be some technical problems with the internet service. Its a shame because it was a great venue and the items were in generally nice condition. The high reserves killed it in my opinion and they probably should have had more posters and less autographs.

Very impressive Magic Poster Auction - Part I of the Nielsen Magic Poster Collection goes on the block on June 25th
There is at least one movie poster, this one made famous by being on The Bruce's home search page everytime I log in.
Est. $40K-60K
(https://auctions.bidsquare.com/images/lot/1460/1460442_0.jpg)

Expected to go even higher is this phenomenal poster with the following description:

Houdini, Harry (Ehrich Weisz). Houdini Presents His Own Original Invention. The Greatest Sensational Mystery Ever Attempted In This or Any Other Age. Cincinnati: The Strobridge Litho. Co., 1916. Vibrant and imposing poster advertising what is perhaps the most famous of all of Houdini’s escapes, the fabled Water Torture Cell. Text at the bottom of the poster advertises a $1,000 reward to anyone who can prove Houdini can breathe while upside down in the “water filled torture cell.” 39 x 84". Image uniformly toned, very tiny scattered restoration; A-. Rare. Built in England at the tremendous cost of some $10,000, Houdini’s Water Torture cell was both a sensational and important escape device. The artist’s representation of the Cell in this poster is unusual in that it includes an outer jail-like framework around the tank. Early on, a cell-like device was lowered into the water, apparently adding a further layer of difficulty to the escape. This was later discarded. Outer bars were less-frequently used, though spectators were invited to secure them with their own locks, adding yet another layer of difficulty to the feat. Houdini’s earlier water escape, the Milk Can, was brilliant for its time, but easy for his imitators to copy, construct, and perform. The Water Torture Cell, on the other hand, was not so easily duplicated. Importantly it allowed the audience to see him while submerged, an innovation that made the stunt both sensational and an audience favorite. Of the effect, Houdini himself wrote, “Imagine yourself jammed head foremost in a cell filled with water, your hands and feet unable to move, and your shoulders tightly lodged in this imprisonment. I believe it is the climax of all my studies and labors. Never will I be able to construct anything that will be more dangerous or difficult for me to do.

I believe CSM told me that the larger one from 1928 (of 51, item #96 were never used due to his tour being canceled. Which makes them more common and thankfully a little less pricy. But the Houdini.

Vectis have this up, end of November.

This one is much like the Goldfinger Hand quad poster that is doing the rounds right now, being passed around like an unloved child as being completely unfit for purpose.

This poster has actually been in my possession through misrepresentation, and was thus sent back.  Stay away at any price.  Best thing for this poster would be to put it to sleep.  Killing with kindness.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: AdamCarterJones on November 24, 2016, 03:51:42 PM
Vectis don't listen, Simon.
A lot of it is down to the manager.

I don't agree that it should be shelved because it does display OK, however, it should be decreased in price.
For a collector...I agree, stay away. Like I explained at the time, I wasn't told the whole truth about this poster and when framed and after taken out of the frame you couldn't tell - it was only after you received it and after it had been rolled that everything came to light. A lot of investigation was conducted on your part. Vectis and the original owner wouldn't pursue the original restorer on the shoddy job.

The reason it is back in Vectis is because it was sold with the knowledge of the bad resto job. The buyer returned it to Vectis saying he didn't know about the restoration etc which was a blatant lie. The stuff he was coming out with was a joke. I told the manager of Vectis she should stand her ground on this one (as they always allow people to return things, which is bizarre for an auction house) and did she listen? No. The guy got his money back. I told them that they did the wrong thing. I then explained that if they were going to resell it they would have to decrease the price again and add extra photos. Guess what? They haven't done either. And they have also slightly changed the description.

The bottom line is that they don't know what they're doing.
Case in point is the auction you linked to. I emailed the manager to tell her that they were advertising and pricing some reprints as originals.
Not a thing has been done.

At this moment in time you need to be very careful with Vectis when it comes to posters and film memorabilia.
I'm probably going there for the auction itself to look at some other things so if anyone wants me to have a look at something for them give me a shout.
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Simes on November 25, 2016, 04:51:49 AM
Interesting.

Yes, the latest buyer was lying.  Perhaps the extent of the damage was not properly relayed.  It certainly is now.

Not sure it even really displays well as all the colours on Andress' skin are blatantly wrong. The cracks in the paint notwithstanding, the entire poster is essentially painted.  There appears to be little point in selling it as an original because, and to be frank, one could glue together a quad's worth of archival blank paper, and paint a brand new Dr No poster on it.

The next nearest example of such work, was the Thunderball quad that only had to its name the central image as being original.  The rest of the quad being made up of archival paper and ALL credits and titling being newly painted - not even painted over original titling.

Which brings us back to the philosophical question of, when does an original poster cease to be an original poster?

Anyway, thanks for the information fella.  All well with you?

Excalibur Auctions has rescheduled their next auction and is having it on Dec 3rd, 2016. We all recall that the auction was canceled due to the passing of Adrian Cowdry, back in August.

There looks to be 91 posters in the mix of toys, and other memorabilia.

Photography and descriptions still leave a lot to be desired...

Ugh.

Is this poster really Fine?  Looks knackered.

Interesting.

Yes, the latest buyer was lying.  Perhaps the extent of the damage was not properly relayed.  It certainly is now.

Not sure it even really displays well as all the colours on Andress' skin are blatantly wrong. The cracks in the paint notwithstanding, the entire poster is essentially painted.  There appears to be little point in selling it as an original because, and to be frank, one could glue together a quad's worth of archival blank paper, and paint a brand new Dr No poster on it.

The next nearest example of such work, was the Thunderball quad that only had to its name the central image as being original.  The rest of the quad being made up of archival paper and ALL credits and titling being newly painted - not even painted over original titling.

Which brings us back to the philosophical question of, when does an original poster cease to be an original poster?

Anyway, thanks for the information fella.  All well with you?

Yeah, things are great, thanks! Yourself?

The last buyer of the Dr. No quad knew exactly what he was buying - you should have seen some of his comments about it. He genuinely didn't have a clue.
Anyway, I'm glad I'm not working at that place any longer - the management is diabolical and quite frankly doesn't give a damn about collectors and that's only the tip of the iceberg.

There's some decent items in the Excalibur auction, but what I don't get in grading is how people can term a piece of paper "MINT" - it's completely wrong.

Maybe that's also why they haven't posted about any of their auctions here on APF in over 2 years?  Their last post on the forum was in July of 2014.

And was that post actually by Adam under a Vectis brand?

Wasn't aware you're no longer working with or for them Adam.  Hope all is well in the employment arena.  If you're just reading the odd post here, and happen back to this one, I had an outstanding question ref US Military 1 Sheets for the Bond films.  Having just taken the plunge with a Dr No 1 Sheet of such connection, and aside from the Thunderball equivalent I am already aware of, I was asking if there were any other Bonds that had such posters created for them...?

Anyway, back to the Events.

At first, as I helped them set the account up, but then they took over and I wasn't party to what they did...or didn't do.
We'll go over the Bond stuff later mate.
Employment is all good!

The management does not believe in the value of forums.
Very odd.

It's also because they didn't like me being involved in the marketing (before I left)...even though I was and still am better qualified than any of them.
They have people running the "marketing department" (if you can call it that) who aren't up to the job. When I was there the girl who was responsible for it was useless and didn't want to learn. It was crazy. The majority of the staff couldn't understand how she was still in the job as she was given it with no interview after the previous post-holder passed away. I explained to them what to do, where to go, where to advertise, who to speak to multiple times...and they never listened. The only reason the company started advertising in Sci-Fi Magazine was because the owner's son told the management they should have been advertising in it, bearing in mind the management shot me down over it weeks before.

If it's not their idea, it's not a good idea.
- That's what all the staff said about the management.

You wouldn't believe what goes on in there - it's a pretty big company, well-placed, able to be a forerunner in an area such as film memorabilia, but it's run by an amateur manager who has no respect from their employees. They would never accept or acknowledge that the girl responsible for marketing couldn't do the job, and simply wasn't doing it correctly. If anything sustained damage they would nine times out of 10 brush it under the carpet or blame someone else for it - I saw it all the time. It happened to me and even I as a freelance employee received no apology; for example, they ruined a 1966 Batman three sheet FFS and didn't care.

The top and bottom of it guys is that the management and much of the floor staff just aren't bothered.

I've heard good and bad things, as with anywhere, but believe me, they would have to go places to beat Vectis!

Wow.  All very enlightening.

Yes, I am better off out of it.
It was incredibly stressful every single time I stepped foot in there.

I didn't just do one job; I was doing five peoples jobs in one because everyone knew I did it properly and so when they rebuffed my request for a rise in what they were paying me I knew I wouldn't last much longer. I'm not talking a £10.00 rise per hour here mind...I'm talking about just £5.00 extra PER DAY!

The manager might as well have blamed me for the failure of the poster auctions, which is an absolute disgrace.
I remember them telling me once they told the owner they'd give me another chance. I was like WTF!? What about the non-existent marketing? What about the ignorance and petulance?
They said to me Vectis was a team so I duly explained how that was a load of bollocks.

The best one for me in the marketing was when I noticed an ad that was due to go into a major trade mag for company-wide advertising. I asked one of the computer guys in there who created the design and before he answered I told him if that was in an ad agency it would have been thrown in the bin (if you don't know about ad agencies, you must have a thick skin because you get told stuff is crap a lot until it's done). As it happened, the girl responsible for marketing designed it. Anyway, I took it away and redesigned it and then I took it back and the guy said he would sort it. Next day I went in my usual time and asked him if he got it sent off. He hadn't. I asked why and he said it was because the marketing girl went in before he finished and told him to use hers and not mine. I was mad, but I also laughed at the incompetency that was on display. It was remarkable.

I could go on and on and on about the place.

Adam, is the Dr No quad that is being discussed the same copy that was offered by Vectis over 2 years ago (and also advertised here on APF)?

Yes, same one, Jeff.
What happened is that after it was removed from the frame, rolled and then unrolled after delivery all the flaws and quite shoddy restoration came to light.
The seller didn't even realise how bad the workmanship was prior this!

Seems a similarly restored Dr No quad that quite possibly had Irish trimmings removed, went for £2k at Ewbanks today.

Hope the effort was consigned Only to the ladies and their ceremonious uncovering, as opposed to the Vectis equivalent that was completely repainted.

Astons have some nice UK Quads in their upcoming auction...

Not sure who briefed them ( I probably do know but I won't mention them here) that the Good, Bad and the Ugly Thierry hates "French Grande" was a '66 first release though. I'm sure that is a 70s release due to the text on the left hand side.

For you south California folks, and those visiting the area, there's a really nice looking posters exhibit and film screenings, from the Silent Era.  It's at the Brea Gallery, in Brea, CA.

From their website:

(http://i766.photobucket.com/albums/xx303/NeoLoco80/Posters/Silent%20invite%20rev%202%20FRONT_thumb_zpsuim5vtl9.jpg) (http://s766.photobucket.com/user/NeoLoco80/media/Posters/Silent%20invite%20rev%202%20FRONT_thumb_zpsuim5vtl9.jpg.html)

Join us as we present a rare look into one of the biggest compilations of silent movie posters and memorabilia. This retrospective exhibition kicks off the City of Brea's centennial celebrations with works on loan from the private collection of Dwight Manley. Featuring exquisite, never before shown silent movie posters, an actual 'silent Oscar', original posters from Brea's centennial year, 1917, Academy Award winning film posters, and movie memorabilia; this show will be comprehensive and delightful. Silent films will be screened in the Gallery throughout the exhibition.

The preview only contains a few lots to generate interest. We expect there to be over 600 of vintage posters in the auction with a strong selection of James Bond.

Ewbank's will be offering in house postage for this auction on items under a certain size (pretty much everything except the large glazed/framed posters). For these we can get competitive quotes for you.

We will also have the auction catalogued and online early summer so buyers have plenty of time to request condition reports and save as there are some great items in there!

If anyone would like a catalogue please contact me on 01483 223101 or alastair@ewbankauctions.co.uk and I will send out a free catalogue if you mention 'All Poster Forum'

I was hoping to watch this one, but wasn't able to.  Quite a variety of nice stuff.  Looking at the post-auction results, many went for right at or near the reserve, and a fairly high percentage of lots were passed. 

Thanks to Jefe, for mentioning the auction here.  thumbup thumbup

Is the in-house postage something you will be bringing to all your future auctions or is it just a one?

Getting the images online much earlier than usual will be great for us buyers. Again is this something you will be bringing to all your auctions?

The in-house postage will be coming at some point. Its just me in the department so looking to get an extra pair of hands to help with postage.

In terms of getting the lots online earlier this proves very difficult for the regular quarterly auctions. We do try our best and the auction is always online a minimum of two weeks beforehand.

Hey Alastair,

Hi Paul,

The only problem at the moment for some people is the cost, the quality, speed and communication of the postage company is very good.

I will say if I can fit it in a medium size tube I will post it to you at cost price.

We now have date and location information for CINEVENT 48 in 2016 and CINEVENT 49 in 2017. Both conventions will be held at the Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel, as this year's convention was. The 2016 convention will be held from Thursday June 2nd through Sunday June 5th. In 2017, the convention will be held from Thursday May 25th to Sunday May 28th. More details will be available soon!

Hey Michael, how did Cinevent 2017 go? Was it a rousing success? Lots of attendees and all that?

And how did Morrie's auction go?

Hey Michael, how did Cinevent 2017 go? Was it a rousing success? Lots of attendees and all that?

It went really well! Multiple dealers told me it was their best year at the show and we look to have had a bit of an increase in attendance, though I don't have final numbers to confirm that. There were, of course, a few bumps in the road, but that's inevitable and the vast majority of people I spoke with were happy.

We're back at the same hotel for the same Memorial Day weekend (Thursday May 24th to Sunday May 27th) next year for CINEVENT 50!

And how did Morrie's auction go?

He and I spoke a bit about that and he certainly didn't come across as unhappy. And my understanding is that we're on for doing the same thing next year. Beyond that, I'd defer to him for giving out any details.

It would be great if he would join here. He started a registration once, over a year ago, but he never completed the reg. process for some reason. Maybe we can get him to try to join again, and post first hand, how it all went.

And congrats on what sounds like a wonderful success this year! clap clap

A copy was sold at Christies in 1997 for £4370. Any paper from this title is pretty scarce so maybe it's the same (only?) copy re-surfacing after all these years. Whatever, it's a great poster.

Another copy (or maybe it's the same?) of that Ghoul 3S was offered at auction by Bonham on November 30, 2016 and failed to sell.  The estimate was $6,000 to $8,000.  The estimate went down this time around, as they're now offering it for $3,800 to $6,400.

Interesting, I wasn't aware of it being up for auction last year.

Given the scarcity of any type of British posters from the 1930s I would have thought that it would have attracted more interest. Maybe, as Paul posted on here elsewhere, there's a decline in people who have the resources wanting to buy horror stuff from that era?

Jim Gresham just posted to MOPO that some of the recovered Universal Horror material recovered by the FBI during the Haggard scandal is going up for auction from July 13-27th. And there will be NO buyer's premium due to the nature of this auction.

Everything is genuine. NO FAKES in this bunch. Gresham also mentioned that some of the pieces he is hoping to bid on and win were his originally.

Tho the auction is being conducted by Gaston & Sheehan Auctioneers, it is the U.S. Marshals Service that is offering the items. Opening bid prices are currently listed with each poster, too.

Here's a link to the auction & the 24 items up for sale:

Sotheby's online-only auctions are very frustrating because as far I know, there is no way to find out the results once the auction is over.  Unlike their regular auctions (which post their results immediately after the sale), the online ones don't give you the option to check what each lot sold for (even if you track said lot).  I don't understand why their system is set up that way.

Even Grey Smith  chimed in to promote a competitor!

Grey is in actuality, one of the best ambassadors of the hobby. At Cinevent and other conventions, he looks at every dealer's stock & does his best to find something to buy. Quite often, the items sell for less in their auctions than the dealer was paid for the item (I know from first-hand experience)

HA does an incredible amount of 'news promotion' that appears on TV, newspapers and other mediums

and to be sure, he never says one negative thing publicly about anyone and supports all of his competitors..

I think he is top-notch and a tremendous asset to the hobby. Glad to call him a friend.

I wanted to also extended another, belated thanks to Alastair McCrea for mailing out the Adrian Cowdry Collection auction catalog in September. I was out of town at the time, and am olny now taking the time to look thru what was offered on the 12th & 13th of October.

Thanks again, Alastair. It's a nice looking catalog.

Bonhams is up.  All suitably vintage.

Ira's collection is personally my favourite single person collection that has come on the market. Some decent results but it's a shame some of the more esoteric paper and titles went unsold. Still absolutely remarkable stuff. notworthy.gif

Sounds like it will be a blend of various scores and movie themes and his imagery, somehow projected or likely all timed to flow with the live music being played.

It sounds like it would be a fun event for sure, Ted.

I think this 'may' have been this auctioneers' first stab at posters.  The chap said it 'was a bit of an attic find.'

Results were good, especially since in a couple of instances, more than one copy of each was for sale.

Some of the £ prices realised prior to BP

Goldfinger – 3400
Live and Let Die – 600
Live and Let Die – 750
OHMSS – 650
Thunderball – 2800
Thunderball – 3000
DR NO RR – 700

I would have suggested Goldfinger to be all in at £3k, and Thunderball to be all in at £2k.  Well done to them.

If the black quadrant was added to the b would also need for the P... Besides then there would be holes going through each poster!
Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: Simes on February 08, 2018, 09:16:46 AM
True.

Perhaps then the B quadrant should not be upper right, but mid right and rotated 45 degrees to suggest the space between the two circular bits...

Dunno.  Still not sure I approve.  Looks a bit 70's.

Although a quick check on Saleroom seems to highlight at least one poster on SR that is not on Invaluable.  A Thunderball teaser, for eg.

Chorley have an auction coming up, to be found on Invaluable.

But such is their photography whereby all the posters look creased and held up by blutak, I am not sure if they know what's what.

And then there's this.

https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/james-bond-007-british-quad-poster-thunderball-vi-b604b8881b

The US 30x40 is called a UK quad, and they don't show the complete poster with all edges!  Looking at the rest of their presentation, it seems par for the course.

Does anyone know what this is?  It is as US as the above poster is British.

https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/james-bond-007-usa-one-sheet-poster-live-and-let-fac4cb0b43

The LALD 1-sheet is definitely of Australian origin. Besides the MAPS printing logo on the corner, the film's rating is NRC, which is used in Australia. The layout, with the blue box surrounding the pink box is the same on the Australian daybill and 3-sheet.

The THUNDERBALL 30x40 looks like it's in nice shape. The GOLDFINGER reissue poster I would say is from around 1967 or thereabouts, judging from the early UA Transamerica logo.

Simon,
The poster looks like it's in fairly decent shape but it looks like it was photographed hanging on someone's wall. Possibly with sticky glue-tack on the corners.
Are you in the hunt for it? After all it IS a 1-sheet, after all.   ;D

Most of this lot didn't sell, perhaps unsurprisingly.

Spy 1 Sheet estimated at £600.

A View Kill Domark computer game poster estimated at £2-300!

Odds and sods went for the £20 mark but otherwise it looks like a supreme waste of everyone's time.

Perhaps unsurprisingly.

Don't believe this has been posted previously. The memorabilia dealer Prop Store is holding its first film poster auction - it is due to take place on 28th June.

Further details are here: https://propstoreauction.com/view-auctions/info/id/128/

This auction even got a little write up/promotion in Forbes:

What was the Profiles story?

It's quite a story....they ended up shipping a lot of quality material back to him so he is overwhelmed at the moment....  basically PIH didnt have the resources to handle it correctly...the magnitude of photography overwhelmed their capacity...they didnt describe the defects properly (Dan Strebin didnt assess the value correctly and the estimates were much lower than expected when published), lobby card lots failed to show pictures of the best cards combined with low estimates (something I was the beneficiary of) i.e. they pictured dead cards instead of best scene cards...the were suppose to hold up to 6 auctions but reneged on the deal after the pains of dealing with 6,000 photos while holding other auctions simultaneously...ultimately falling flat on their promises...it took them roughly 30 days to send invoices to buyers who wanted to pay and receive their items within a week... (mine took 45 days to get to me)....there is more of course

one Indian institution buyer (from Osian's) failed to pay for $125,000 in auction winnings....the same buyer was assumed to be the curator who "arranged the purchase" never paid for the entire Leonard Schrader collection (which never made it to India) and sat in a storage unit in California for nearly 15 years before it was auctioned in lots a few months ago....we talked about that auction for a bit here on APF...So that is why Julien's had a fire sale of all those great silent cards in large lots including the greatest Keaton collection of cards (according to Michael Hawks and Morrie) ever assembled...Morrie didnt even find out about it until the last second before the Julien's Auction....Morrie said it was insane to sell them in lots and it was crazy to fire sale them with no publicity...

Hmmm. Sorry to read all that.

I guess in hindsight, it was a problem waiting to happen given the sheer size of the collection.  Was Morrie ever a part of the sales / marketing / listing process?  I ask as he would be the person best placed to handle the breadth of knowledge.  No matter how good Profiles is, I could never see anyone who would know all about all.

In his place, Morrie's, to safeguard the process and monetary benefit, I would Never just chuck it all over the fence and let them get on with it.  Rather I would based myself in their offices for a year writing the blurb and collating.

It appears the Jaws insert they have is a minty white bootleg, as it seems to be missing the bubble.

Can someone walk me through how a bootleg is bootlegged?

I would imagine someone just photographs the whole poster, image, frames, words 'n' all; and then reprints it.

If so, why would there be missing bubbles?

If a bootleg is photographed piecemeal and then recreated, then I can see how there may be things missing.

I can't believe they got a Czech King Kong poster!  Damn that's pretty huge!

I have no clue what glazed means though....Most of the posters say they were "framed and glazed"?  Is that like laminating?  Any ideas?

A lot of great posters and original artwork.  If the bidding starts near the estimates, there will not be many bargains, indeed.

Although there aren't many sales for this Jaws magazine promo dealio, it's one of the more surprising estimates, IMO.  I picked up one on eBay a few years ago, and sent it to eMovie for consignment recently.  It sold there for $73.

http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/15823208.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/15823208.html)

This one is linen backed, and the estimate is £600-900 (~$750-1150).

has it faded from a more red colour do you think? or would that not be possible as it has been packed away for 80 odd years
also, when a new unused poster is discovered from years before, are they more often than not found with more than one copy?
probably not, but you never know. not that i have to worry about my bidding strategy with this  ;D

Seems that early French cinema poster from 1896 (Cinématographe Lumière (1896)) has WELL surpassed the estimate, with the current bid at 160,000 GBP. The estimate was 40-60K GBP.

Now to see where it might end up or if it climbs any higher.

Wow! Thanks for posting that. Looks like that’s going to be quite the return on investment, assuming a total sales price of around $45k (€32k hammer price plus fees) at the Millon auction, and maybe $1500-2000 total for restoration and framing. Obviously, Sotheby’s is a larger auction house and subsequently there was more hoopla surrounding the sale. Once again shows the power of advertising.

There is quite a community out there, as well as a grading scale..based on condition, and down to some very fine details and points (no pun intended). They are amazing to see and hold, in person, thinking what size the meg was that these teeth are from. Some having been 60' or longer.  :o

Yeah they're awesome.  The one there is pretty nice.  It still has most of the enamel, the gray part, which puts it higher on the grading scale as most are much more fossilized.  It appears the serrations are all smoothed, which is common for teeth more than 2.6 million years old.  It's really difficult to find one that's fully intact, with the enamel, serrations, etc.  I've only found a couple Megalodon teeth while diving, neither as nice as that one.  It's amazing to go to the areas where there are other fossils from other long extinct creatures, and some fossils from shark species that have existed for millions of years and are still living.

And like any collectible, its all about condition, condition, condition. That and where they are found. There are some areas in the world where the search and sale for certain species has been prohibited. So that has driven the price up on those particular teeth, as well. Plus, they are found throughout many areas of the world. All very cool, for sure.  8)

One of my many dive trips was to the Cooper River in South Carolina about 15 years ago.  It was quite disorienting -- the clay bottom we were searching was only about 20' deep, but the water was so murky that when you got about half way down you couldn't see the sun anymore.  You had to watch your bubbles to figure out which way was up!  It was basically like diving in coffee that was infested with alligators and bull sharks.  I somehow even managed to convince my (future) wife to come with!  8)

She found a complete Meg tooth.  It was on the small side but the enamel and serrations were mostly intact -- still razor sharp!  We also found lots of Meg tooth fragments as well as great white, mako and other shark teeth.  And other fossils like dolphin vertebrae, pieces of whale rib bones, and some lead remnants from Civil War-era shot towers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_tower). 

Not surprisingly, it was a very memorable experience!

Counterfeiting? ;D

I am guessing that the original owners were compensated via insurance and hence they are on sale?
Seeing them makes you kind of realise how many people must have been conned

Not really an event, but a quirky site selling posters.

is it new to the board, or is the owner in fact a regular here.

Much of what he is illustrating is already sold (at least in the Bond universe), making it a slow experience to get through everything.  But some thought has gone into making it look different.

Not sure how it might all work on phones etc...?

I guess £4.2k is like $49.99 to some.  Probably why I'm having such a hard time winning anything nowadays.  Lots of deep pockets.

Title: Re: Upcoming movie poster events calendar
Post by: crowzilla on April 17, 2019, 02:15:19 AM

Nope.
If you mean the Hunchback insert, it is a great piece - and surprisingly the most "common" paper on the title. Todd had a discovery of (I think) six inserts about a decade or so ago and I think that is where all but one or two of the ones known came from.

As for who is Wes Shank, he was known as the curator of the Blob and has been a movie memorabilia collector since the early 60s (he purchased the Blob silicone from the director of the film in 1965), attended the MGM auction in 1970 and was a really nice guy and huge movie fan. Probably most importantly for movies, he was the guy who discovered the 16mm print of King Kong in the late 60s that contained the "lost" censored scenes and were restored for the Janus Films release in the early 70s (and most other releases for about another 20 years until more copies surfaced).

Ewbank's is up

https://www.ewbankauctions.co.uk/Vintage-Posters/2019-10-04

Does anyone have suggestions on how to get posters shipped to the US from Ewbank's? I have my eye on a couple Bond posters but I can't pick them up myself.

I too have my eye on a couple of things.

If people have the odd one or two items, and IF I win what I am looking at, I can happily pick up and ship.  Just people from the forum, not to be forwarded on FB or any such.  And also if just the odd item.

You will need to get permissions sorted out pronto though in case I have to dash down to pick up.

Cheers.

Simes, I might take you up on your offer for pick-up and shipping should I be lucky with my bidding.  Last time I had my lots from Ewbanks shipped to NYC, it cost a lot more than it should have.  So thank you for the generous offer and I will let you know if I need your assistance.

All, I will be going down to Ewbanks to pick up a poster.

I will be endeavouring to go on Monday.  Please can you let me know what to pick up, and to ensure you have sorted all your permissions for me to retrieve.

Best.

Simes, I succesfully bid on one lot (a UK Quad for Zombie Flesh Eaters) in Ewbank's auction today, and I have already paid for it online.  I emailed them to inquire about what the requirements are for a 3rd party to collect the lot on my behalf and will let you know what they say (maybe you can DM me with your full name so that they can identify you when you go to retrieve my poster).  Once again, thank you so much for your offer to pick this up and ship it to my home address in NYC.

Title: Original Film Poster Exhibition in London
Post by: jacksonturner on October 08, 2019, 08:05:16 AM
Hi Guys, forgive me if I have not posted to the correct thread!

I have just found out about an exhibition called 'Vic Fair: Retrospective' in Highgate, North London. He was the Man behind 'The Man Who Fell To Earth' , 'Jabberwocky' and ' Mick Jagger in 'Performance'. I think there will be a number of originals for sale.  I'm planning on going down there sometime tomorrow - anybody fancy meeting up?

Ewbanks have popped this auction in between their quarterly Entertainment auctions.  Came out of nowhere but, really, there are some superb pieces here.

Horror, Hitchcock, Bond.  The majority are linen backed but for those who are not concerned, I would submit this auction is a treat.

I saw a lot of this collection (pretty sure others would have too) in the preview.

It is a superb collection and I thought WOW!
However, for those who are weary about linen backing as many of the posters are, contact Ewbanks as early as you can about the actual restoration completed on the poster you are looking at.

In my experience, don't leave it till the day before as you're unlikely to receive a response.
I'll likely be bidding on a few non-Bond pieces!
