Post by: Bruce on February 10, 2010, 12:22:01 AM
In my weekly e-mail club (5,900+ members) I am holding a series of 8 polls to see what members can pick the most correct winners of the top 8 Oscar categories!

The Grand Prize will be at least $1,000 retail and there will be runner-up prizes. If you are not already a member, go to http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php (http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php) and join. If you are already a member, be sure to vote in the first two polls before this coming Friday morning (it just takes a minute to vote, and it may be YOU getting that Grand Prize!).

Oh goody, this sounds like fun. I wanted to make a bet with someone that believes Avatar will not win Best Picture, and bet them that it will win Best Picture. This is the next best thing, so thanks.

Now THAT is a poster prize!

I'm in. Thanks for the fun, Bruce. Have you done this in years past and I've just missed it? Define $1000 retail for us if you would. Thanks.

I mean I will send the person who picks the most correct of the 8 categories a mix of vintage posters and out-of-print books that I sell on my site for at least $1,000.

Best of luck Juli. I am rooting for you!

A $1000 credit to your site would be better :)

$10,000 credit would be even better! Can I put you down for $1,000 of it? If I get nine guys to put up $1,000 each, I'll put up the last $1,000.

This is something that takes around a minute to do, once a week for 4 weeks. I am sorry the prize is not good enough!  ::)

No one's complaining about the prize. It's sounds like fun. $1000 credit crossed Harry's mind just as it would anyone's at first glance reading: "The Grand Prize will be at least $1,000 retail". The choice of wording leaves room for such a possibility in mind of the reader which is why the wording is used in part. "$1000 worth of poster books and a mix of vintage posters" gets it across more directly. I'm looking forward to the contest, myself.

Thanks Carson. I don't see anyone else giving ANYTHING free. They are too busy collecting their 20% buyer's premiums.

As of right now, only around 100 people have entered, and there are only two days to go on the first two. A one in 100 chance of winning $1,000 in ANYTHING seems like a pretty sweet deal to me, but of course I am not forcing anyone to enter!

Hey, Bruce, I deleted my weekly email message after I put about 100 of those gorgeous Japanese posters on my watch list.  How does one enter if he's already on the email list but can't retrieve the email?  Am I shit out of luck?

Title: Our Spring 2010 Mini/Major Auction has begun, and it is a GREAT set of auctions!
Post by: Bruce on April 30, 2010, 02:30:33 PM
Our Spring 2010 Mini/Major Auction has begun, and it is truly our very best auction since our "major" auctions ended in 2005!

Our Spring 2010 Mini/Major Auction has begun! We know that the two parts of it (ending on the 4th and 6th of May) contains an incredible selection of movie paper, and best of all, it covers all genres and years, and all sizes (from lobby cards to six-sheets), with an excellent selection of non-U.S. sizes.  See below for full details of what is in both sets of auctions!

To make buying from these auctions irresistible, we offer our very best bonus t-shirt ever to EVERY buyer (even if they only purchase one $1 item)!  We bet that lots of people will find one item to buy from these auctions just to get this great t-shirt, which they can't get any other way!  Click HERE to see an image of what will appear on the new t-shirt.

ARE YOU A MEMBER OF OUR E-MAIL CLUB (6,195 movie paper collectors are!)?  If you are, then you will qualify for our incredible added bonuses.  If you are not a club member, know that we will be offering our most generous bonus offers ever to those who purchase just FIVE items from either or both of the two parts combined (you need just purchase a total of five items from both parts). We will have multiple great offers for those who purchase as few as five items, and as many as twelve or more, and you get these just for being a member of the club. So if you are not already a member, then why not join today by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php .

Thanks for the feedback, fellas.

I haven't recieved my order either, and haven't gotten any response to my inquiries.  Was just scratching my head because I paid right away.
Guess I'm spoiled to the regularly ultra fast shipping here...hope to get it soon.
Title: Re: Our Spring 2010 Mini/Major Auction has begun, and it is a GREAT set of auctions!
Post by: Bruce on May 17, 2010, 11:21:49 PM
We had some unusual circumstances. One shipping employee had heart surgery and will be out 6-8 weeks. Even if I hired someone to replace him, that new person wouldn't have the knowledge needed to do the job right. There was some kind of bronchitis/flu that made its way through the rest of the shipping/packing employees the past two weeks.

Together these circumstances, combined with having the two mini-major auctions, plus two Sunday auctions with around 800 items each rather than the usual 250 or so, set us behind on sending some orders from the past two weeks. To help offset it, the shipping guys came in and worked all day Sunday.

We are now close to caught up, and we anticipate being fully caught up by the end of the week.

In these kinds of situations, I am faced with doing everything our usual way and letting some orders ship late, or do things in a less than perfect way, and I always assume people can handle the delay, and would prefer knowing everything is packed and shipped right.

My apologies to anyone who had a delay and felt disappointed as a result. I have no control over sickness, but I still have to accept the responsibility when it causes delays.

No worries Bruce, and thank you very much for the explanation.  Like I said, just shows how spoiled we all are when someone like me is wondering after a couple weeks or less.

I hope you all get well over there and back up to speed, grinding on all cylinders soon.

Get some hand sanitizer pumps over there!

Ive said it before, sometimes life gets in the way,  and if you really get mad about a poster a few days late, you AINT GOT NO LIFE, it’s a bit of paper. Means nothing, except we happen to like them.

Ah, gotcha.  I agree with you on that for sure.

With Bruce and eMovie, you know things will be straight sooner or later.  But if you get screwed by a bad dealer in some way, shape, or form and get taken, then its less about paper and more about money...which always stinks to be schistered out of.

You know I deal with crap customer service from places like mondo and ebay sellers all the time and really it wouldnt bother me much if they communicated .. Just say hey I had a long weekend and didnt get to packing anything Ill have it out this week blah blah .. (and get it out that week I dont want more excuses the next week) Its all about being responsible for yourself and getting the job done .. I have no bad feelings towards Bruce at all here because the issue was brought up and he quickly jumped in and explained the situation and was apologetic .. No harm no foul .. Hope things get better for the employees !! :)

But I have made comments/complaints on EB about mondo and their lack of communication and the basic over all fuck off attitude Ive received and the EB members just tell me to shut up and be happy I got one of the posters which I can understand to an extent .. But really When does bad customer service start catching up with seller like Mondo that dont seem to care because they know theres more buyers out there to take the place of the ones they lose .. not to mention the fact that I dont want to stop buying LOL .. I want my posters !! :P

When a competitor starts producing equal or better product and contracting big time artists that do great work on a consistent basis. This will give buyers an option and since I think most people realize they can't own every poster ever made they will be given another option on where they spend their money.

One of the problems is that just to do a poster is one thing, but to tie it with an actual screening at a theater or event makes it more difficult with covering profits.

Title: eMoviePoster.com is coming up on some pretty impressive milestones!
Post by: Bruce on July 18, 2010, 01:34:49 PM
We at eMoviePoster.com are coming up on some pretty impressive milestones!

We now have 7,368 registered bidders for our auctions, which means it will just be a month or so before we hit 7,500! There is no other movie poster auction or forum with anywhere near this number. Remember that these are actual movie paper collectors. What difference does it make if a site has hundreds of thousands or millions of bidders, if they aren't movie paper collectors?

Next club message will be message #500, and I will be making a couple of really special offers in honor of that occasion! It seems like just a short while ago that I sent that first e-mail to a couple of dozen collectors, but it was actually over ten YEARS ago! We will also be announcing the activation of the first portion of our online checkout system, which has been the number one request we have received (but for those of you who prefer calling in, know that we won't be eliminating that!).

In a few months (around Halloween time!) we will have our 500th weekly Tuesday auction! I remember well when I first picked Tuesday as a night when few people were busy with anything else, so it seemed like a perfect night for an auction. Little did I know that a few years later one of the most successful TV shows of all time (American Idol) would begin airing on Tuesdays! Thank God for TIVO and DVR, which let people record their favorite shows and not miss our auctions.

Speaking of not missing our auctions, one of the wives of one of our bidders called in a payment for her husband last week, and she said that my name is mentioned a lot in their house, and not in a positive way! She explained that often she would ask her husband to go somewhere and do something with her, and that he would reply, "I would love to, but Bruce's auctions end tonight"!

And we are fast approaching HALF A MILLION entries in our online Sales Results database http://www.emovieposter.com/sales/priceguide.php (http://www.emovieposter.com/sales/priceguide.php) (it has over 485,000 results right now)!

And soon we will have ONE THIRD OF A MILLION images in our Poster Image Archive at http://www.emovieposter.com/imagearchive/stars.php (http://www.emovieposter.com/imagearchive/stars.php), which is far and away the most movie poster images of any site on the Internet (it has over 313,000 images right now)!!

Bruce, regarding the WCs, were the blank portions at the top trimmed at some point or did you remove them digitally so the cards underneath could be seen?

Most have the tops. It is just that they are small in the combined preview that we cut off the tops so that the images could be larger.

The entire images will of course be on the auctions. I can't wait for the auctions to start!

Thanks for the compliments! Remember there's a lot more you aren't seeing yet. I have been privately e-mailed that I must be crazy to offer so much GREAT stuff all at one time after the dud auctions in Ohio and Texas where SO many items passed, because that means "everyone is broke", but I think just the opposite. I think that the reason so much passed in those auctions was the too high reserves, and I think that means there is still plenty of money left to be spent (because people didn't get to spend it at those auctions).

I guess time will tell if I am right or if I am wrong, but even if I am wrong THIS auction won't have any passes at all, because it is all starting at $1, and everything will sell, which means there is the potential for some great deals on some really cool items!

Interesting and VERY possible....At any rate, I gotta love your optimism.  8)

I dont know about plenty of money but I do know that since I passed on Texas(Due in part to falling asleep  :P) I have enough money to get a t-shirt... ;D

I think that the reason so much passed in those auctions was the too high reserves

I completely agree that the practice of starting bidding at half the estimate tends to kill much incentive to bid.  I would rather have an item with a reserve, because at least then you'll see what FMV is on that item at that point in time.  So many items in HA's auction sold for half/well under their estimates or got no bids at all.
Title: Our Summer Mini/Major Auction concludes on Sunday afternoon
Post by: Bruce on August 07, 2010, 10:30:04 PM
The final part of our Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auctions closes Sunday! THIS IS ABSOLUTELY OUR BEST AUCTION SINCE OUR "MAJOR AUCTION" DAYS, and we saved many of the best items for last!

Our Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction had an incredible selection of posters (around 900 items in all!), covering all years and many different countries including exceptional linenbacked, paperbacked, and unbacked items and ran in three parts (Part I or Part II are now concluded, but Part III still has two days to run and concludes on Sunday, and we saved many of the best items for last):

    * Part I COMPLETED! $97,033 in sales! 313 backed and unbacked inserts, window cards, half-sheets, lobby cards, campaign books, pressbooks & more
    * Part II COMPLETED! $84,668 in sales! 378 LINENBACKED posters (one-sheet size and smaller)
    * Part III (ends Sunday August 8th, beginning at 3 PM CST, NOT at night!): 290 unbacked "rolled" posters & oversized linenbacked posters

What distinguishes OUR Mini/Major Auctions from other major auctions? Only the lack of any reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images! You will find an amazing "supermarket" selection of great posters from all years, genres, and countries!

THIS IS ABSOLUTELY OUR BEST AUCTION SINCE OUR "MAJOR AUCTION" DAYS! If you didn't find LOTS of items to interest you in THESE three sets of auctions, then you need to re-think your collecting strategy!

Also, know that every buyer from ANY of the parts of our "Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction" receives a great full-color printed t-shirt as a free bonus (even if you only purchase one item)!
     Every buyer in this special auction will receive a great full-color T-shirt (pictured here), which shows the image from the Gilda style B one-sheet poster included in this auction (we will only be making as many t-shirts as there are different buyers in these auctions, so it will be a VERY limited edition, and likely will become a "collector's item" in its own right!). Given that you get this great full-color T-shirt with any purchase, shouldn't you absolutely find any one item to purchase from us from among the 900+ items in these special auctions?

KNOW THAT WE PURPOSELY INCLUDED A LARGE NUMBER OF RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE ITEMS IN PART III OF THIS AUCTION, SPECIFICALLY SO THAT ANYONE WHO WOULD WANT TO GET ONE ITEM TO WIN THE BONUS SHIRT COULD DO SO FOR A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF MONEY, AND ALSO SO THAT CLUB MEMBERS COULD MORE EASILY WIN BETWEEN 5 AND 12 ITEMS AND GET THE GREAT CLUB BONUSES (see below).

BUT WAIT, THERE'S EVEN MORE!  The above bonus t-shirt offer is for anyone who purchases any ONE item from either part of this mini/major auction.  But if you are a member of our weekly e-mail club, we will be offering our most generous bonus offers ever to those who purchase just FIVE items from either or both of the two parts combined (you need just purchase a total of five items from both parts).  We will have multiple great offers for those who purchase as few as five items, and as many as twelve or more, and you get these just for being a member of the club (so if you are not already a member, and over 6,380 collectors already are, then why not join today by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php). It is fine with us if you join the club solely to get the great bonuses and then quit after you receive them!

So what did you all win?  Big bids were out for me in light of the recent Bogart cache (http://www.allposterforum.com/index.php/topic,327.msg12829.html#msg12829) I stumbled upon... However, I still managed to win a very cool Czech Battle of Algiers poster.  It is a fantastic film and I now have several posters for it...

Love the Battle of Algiers, Harry.  I thought about making a run at it myself, so I am glad to see its going to a good home.  I got what most would call the "oddity" of the auction.  The CE3K banner.  As far as I know, these were silk screened and cost theaters in the neighborhood of $30.  There were not many theater owners willing to pay that price at the time, so not many ever hit circulation.  Because of this, the silkscreen movie banner was essentially dead by the early 80's.

Outstanding win!  Great poster that I completely overlooked  :'(  You're right, "Battle Of Algiers" is an excellent movie and Bruce has had some wonderful int'l examples for it.  I've bid on at least a couple of them, so it's possible we've bid against each other in the past  ;)

At the moment Harry, I really do not have room to display anything.  When I move back to the states and set up a theater, I plan on hanging it at the top of the back wall.  Originally I was thinking about hanging it just above the screen, but I think that might be a bit distracting when trying to watch a movie.  I may try it anyway though.
Title: Our just concluded Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction was a major success
Post by: Bruce on August 20, 2010, 11:50:26 PM
Our just concluded Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction was a major success, FAR beyond our expectations, with total sales of over $274,000!


The total of all three auctions was $274,739!  What makes this so interesting is that the world is in the throes of a major recession, the likes of which have not been seen in our lifetimes.  And there were two major movie poster auctions from other companies in the past few months (one just a couple of weeks ago) which had remarkably disappointing results, with unsold items in numbers never before seen!

So what made our auctions different?  Obviously, collectors are tired of the "old way" of doing business, where everything is "buyer beware", and auction houses are often a place filled with high reserves and items with undisclosed restoration, and they prefer to deal with us, because we stand behind everything we sell, and we are 100% honest, and we have REAL customer service.  Also, auctions have kept increasing their buyers premiums until they now all charge 20% or 25% extra, and very few buyers like those, whereas we have NO buyers premiums whatsoever!

But of course, we went even further (as we always do in our Mini/Major auctions) and we gave a GREAT bonus t-shirt offer to everyone who purchased any ONE item from any of the three parts of this mini/major auction, PLUS we offered our most generous bonus offers ever to those who purchased just FIVE items from any of the three parts combined (you needed to purchase a total of five items from all three parts).  We also gave great additional bonuses for every additional item up to 12 items (including three great coffee table books) so that those who purchased 12 items received $700 retail of great bonuses!

We had one sad occurrence in our Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction, but it shows two important differences between OUR auctions and ANY others!


After the auction concluded, the third highest selling item was the LAWRENCE OF ARABIA pre-awards camel style, for $11,800. The high bidder paid for the item and had it overnighted, but after receiving it said they did not agree with our condition assessment of the poster, and returned it. Based on the e-mail correspondence we had, I think that buyer remorse played a significant role in this quick cancellation, but I still did as I always do with these rare cancellations in our auctions, which was to tell the buyer to return it immediately for a full refund.
     That is why the poster reads SALE CANCELLED in the list above, and why the $11,800 has been deducted from the total sales of the auctions. While it is certainly very sad that this occurred, it shows two important differences between OUR auctions and ANY others:
     1) You are NEVER "stuck" with a purchase in OUR auctions! Other auctions hide behind a ludicrous "buyer beware" policy that borders on being criminal, for they often take that "escape clause" (which means every buyer is stuck even if the auction house made major errors in describing the item) and then use it to INTENTIONALLY mis-describe or over-grade items, meaning they have lots of unhappy buyers who have no recourse against the auction other than to refuse to deal with them in the future, and they are left with a sometimes very costly lesson of what "buyer beware" really means.
     But in our auctions, we honestly describe EVERY item, and that means we can offer every buyer a chance to return any item they are unhappy with, so that NO ONE ever needs to feel "stuck" with a purchase they are unhappy with. Of course, we can't have people bidding and then canceling over and over, so we have to tell the very few people who have abused this policy that they can't continue to do so in the future, but this almost never happens in our auctions (and we have auctioned almost half a million movie paper items in the past 20 years!).
     2) The fact that we are open and honest about everything that occurs in our auctions means that you both know that every price we report (after the auctions are added to our Sales Results Database online at http://www.emovieposter.com/sales/priceguide.php) is a 100% accurate price, and that in every case the consignor was paid the price listed (minus our commission) in cash! Other auctions NEVER revise their reported results to reflect cancelled or unpaid for items (and they don't reveal which lots were bought back by the consignors or were bought by the auction house from itself) so you can't know if their reported auction prices ever happened! Many times people say to me, "You did well with this item, but Auction House X sold the same item for 50% more a couple of years ago", but there is NO telling that their reported sale was real or that any money changed hands (and if you look at their auctions after that reported high result, you often see that the very same item has been re-offered and has "sold" for half the previous listed result, and one must wonder whether that first "sale" never happened and a cancelled item has been re-sold).
     You can ALWAYS trust our Sales Results Database to give you honest accurate results, so you can better gauge how much to bid on an item that is currently offered. And we will ALWAYS remove items that are not paid for from our Sales Results Database, even when it is a very high profile item like this one (and this is the very first $10,000+ item we have had cancelled, and we attribute that to our fanatical honest grading, which is true of everything we auction, for we have less than one in 500 items returned FOR ANY REASON, which is pretty remarkable given the vast number of items we auction!).

ATTENTION TO THOSE OF YOU WHO MIGHT HAVE "BETTER" QUALITY ITEMS TO CONSIGN TO US

We will have THREE more "special event" auctions in the remainder of 2010:

The first of these "special event" auctions is our Fall 2010 "Non-U.S. Only" Mini/Major Auction beginning at the end of September.  NOW is the time for you to consign to this special auction.  We held a similar auction to this in February of this year, and that auction had excellent results, and we have no reason to think this auction won't do just as well (in addition, it will be helped by the falling U.S. dollar, which always gains us lots of additional non-U.S. buyers).

THE DEADLINE FOR CONSIGNING TO THIS FALL 2010 "NON-U.S. ONLY" MINI/MAJOR AUCTION IS AUGUST 25th!


The second of these "special event" auctions is our 11th Annual Halloween Mini/Major Auction beginning at the end of October.   Every year for 10 years we have received exceptional results for horror/sci-fi items in this auction, and you have just a few weeks to consign to this special auction.

THE DEADLINE FOR CONSIGNING TO THIS 11th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN MINI/MAJOR AUCTION IS SEPTEMBER 29th!


The third of these "special event" auctions is our December 2010 Mini/Major Auction beginning at the end of November (but closing in early December).  You have a couple of months to consign to this special auction, but these kind of deadlines tend to creep up on you, so you might want to start assembling consignments NOW, especially because we are often consigned two of the same item, and we always auction the one we received first.  This will be just like our just concluded Summer 2010 Mini/Major Auction, and we have no reason to think this auction won't do just as well!

THE DEADLINE FOR CONSIGNING TO THIS DECEMBER 2010 MINI/MAJOR AUCTION IS OCTOBER 27th!

IF YOU HAVE ITEMS YOU THINK WOULD MAKE SENSE FOR ANY OF THESE SPECIAL AUCTIONS AND WOULD LIKE THEM INCLUDED (and they can be linenbacked or not linenbacked), THEN PLEASE CONTACT US BY THE ABOVE DATES!  Please remember that we want items to have a realistic retail of $50 or more.  Items of lesser value make far more sense for our "regular" non-U.S. auctions, where they are not in competition with lots of great posters. Please note that if you currently have consignments with us, we will NOT pull out those items to move to this auction.  Those items will be sold in our regular auctions.

Given that eBay is imploding (and has declared war on its sellers!), and given that we have both delivered excellent results in our past several months of auctions, and given that we are the only venue where you can sell HUGE quantities of material (both in terms of dollars, and in terms of numbers of posters), then shouldn't YOU consider consigning to one or all three of the above special auctions?

If you want to consider emoviepaper.com, how about emoviecollectibles.com. You are getting into non paper like glass slides, who knows what next.

"Paper" seems to be an "industry insider" term.  I've generally only heard dealers, not buyers, use that term in this hobby.  

Perhaps you could add "auction" (or one of its synonyms) to your name in some way to differentiate you from poster retailers like movieposter.com.  Most people think that Ebay is the only auction game in town.

Title: Join our "Frequent Buyers' Program" and start getting cash rebates!
Post by: Bruce on September 10, 2010, 03:29:59 PM
MORE REASON TO JOIN OUR E-MAIL CLUB!
We open our "Frequent Buyers' Program" (which had been in beta testing) to all club members!
Our "Frequent Buyers' Program" has been in "beta testing" for some months now, and now we are opening it to all members of our weekly e-mail club (see below for how to join if you are not currently a member)! What IS the Frequent Buyers' Program? It is our way of rewarding our very best customers even more than we already do, just as airlines and hotels do!
It is a simple program. Members of our Frequent Buyers' Program (who MUST be members of our weekly e-mail club) receive a special full-color t-shirt printed solely for members of this program, and then, every month in which they purchase 50 or more items from us, they receive a 50 cent rebate for every item they bought that month!
That means that if they bought exactly 50 items that month, then they receive $25 back (which is not much, but will pay for a meal or a poster!), and some of the members buy as many as 200 items in a month, and those members get $100 or so back, which sure compares favorably to those "other" auctions that give you NOTHING back after the auctions end, but which sock you with massive 20% or 25% "buyers premiums"!
How do YOU enter this program? Simply become a club member (if you are not already) and purchase 50 or more items from our auctions in any calendar month, and we'll personally invite you to join, and send you your bonus t-shirt and a rebate for that month, and each month after where you purchase 50 or more items from us you will get another rebate from us!

We have a great weekly e-mail club!
Our club has 6,460 members, and many weeks we make great bonus offers to club members who buy multiple items from us at auction! So if there is ANY chance at all that you might end up buying a number of items from us at auction in future weeks, then you have a LOT of incentive to join the club (if you are not already a member) because we will keep on giving away excellent prizes to those members of the club who buy multiple items. We run fun weekly polls, which a couple of hundred participate in each week, with great prizes for randomly selected members, plus we give news about the hobby in general and our auctions in particular!
Why not join the club today (if you are not already a member)? You'll at most receive ONE e-mail a week (note that we do NOT send update e-mails like this one to members of our weekly e-mail club, because the information is duplicated there, so if you join our club, you will cease to get these "update" e-mails), and your e-mail address is NEVER given out to anyone, and you have a great chance to win great prizes, and you can quit anytime! Just go to http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php and fill out the super simple form, and you will be a member, and qualify for the great club bonuses!

There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannonballing down through the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree.
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when, but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliver
To me!
Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!

Come on, something, come on in, don't be shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!
The air is humming,
And something great is coming!
Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight . . .

I would say that those who primarily collect "newer" posters (those post 1970) are often very anti-linen, and of course I see no reason to buy any post 1970 poster linenbacked when you can almost certainly find it off linen.

Those who primarily collect really older items (pre-1950) have learned you can't be very choosy! For example, tonight I added a 1943 Return of the Vampire one-sheet that seemingly SHOULD be "around" and yet no one seems to have it. Now this one is NOT backed, but had it been backed, that would not lessen any serious collector's interest in it, because they know they might not see another one for YEARS.

I would say it is those "in the middle" (who collect mostly 1950s and 1960s posters) who sometimes are fine with linen, and sometimes hate it.

I would also say that the massive counterfeiting scheme, which involved solely restored posters and cards which later proved to be fakes, did create a lot more anti-restoration sentiment among those who had been "on the fence". That is a shame, first that one low life scum scam artist, and one massively bone-headed restorer (if his story is to be accepted) did so much damage, and secondly because the vast majority of restored posters are absolutely fine to own (and this was a one-shot scam that is unlikely to ever be repeated, even in a small way).

I personally have nothing against quality minimalist restoration. I hate bad restoration, and also the kind that "makes it look perfect", which often makes the item looked "dipped in paint".

Am I the only one having issues with the layout starting on pg10 (if you do 80 items per page).  The page is stretched horizontally, and there are no items on the proceeding pages.  It's been like this since last night when the auction went live.

I would say that those who primarily collect "newer" posters (those post 1970) are often very anti-linen, and of course I see no reason to buy any post 1970 poster linenbacked when you can almost certainly find it off linen.
Bruce

Keep selling the linen-backed posters, Bruce.  They look great framed and some collectors like me will pay extra for them.  The folds on some of my posters (e.g. Downhill Racer) really detract from their appearance when framed.

Title: Part I of our 11th Annual Halloween 2010 Mini/Major Auction closes TONIGHT
Post by: Bruce on November 02, 2010, 07:00:22 AM
Part I of our 11th Annual Halloween 2010 Mini/Major Auction closes TONIGHT, November 2nd, beginning at 7 PM CST (just 13 hours from this writing)!

As of this writing, with just 13 hours to go, the 751 horror & sci-fi items include a wacky 87 that are $5 each and under, an absurd 148 that are $10 each and under, and a mind-boggling 247 that are $15 each and under! THAT'S RIGHT, ONE THIRD OF THE ITEMS ARE $15 EACH OR UNDER, and REMEMBER THAT THE PRICE YOU BID IS THE PRICE YOU PAY (plus actual shipping cost) AND EVERY BUYER GETS A GREAT FULL-COLOR T-SHIRT (and an option to buy the $85 CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT book for just $24.99), AND CLUB MEMBERS GET INCREDIBLE ADDED BONUSES FOR BUYING 5 TO 12 ITEMS FROM BOTH PARTS COMBINED (see below)! Note that we have NO 20% or 25% buyers premiums that every other major auction has!

We purposely included a wide selection of more affordable items in these auctions, specifically to make it easy for anyone who wants to win one item for the FULL-COLOR T-SHIRT (and chance for the huge discount on CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT) to do so, and this also allows anyone who wants to get 12 inexpensive items (see below) to do so for a very reasonable amount of money. GIVEN THAT MOST OF THESE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY AT HALF OR LESS THAN PREVIOUS SALES FOR THAT ITEM, THIS SURELY REPRESENTS ONE OF THE GREATEST BUYING OPPORTUNITIES IN THE HISTORY OF ONLINE AUCTIONS!

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 6,538+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php and it is fine with us if you join just to get the bonuses, and you can quit once you receive them), you get great bonuses if you purchase between five and twelve of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on the bonuses (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you). Read on:

    * Buy 5 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books
    * Buy 6 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, plus the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack
    * Buy 7 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books
    * Buy 8 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books, plus The Movie Poster Book
    * Buy 9 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books, plus The Movie Poster Book, plus Crime Scenes
    * Buy 10 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books, plus The Movie Poster Book, plus Crime Scenes, plus WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT WAS!, the great long out of print softcover book about blaxploitation movies
    * Buy 11 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books, plus The Movie Poster Book, plus Crime Scenes, plus plus WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT WAS!, plus the great "flip book" edition of Reel Art
    * Buy 12 items TOTAL from either or both parts and get the 9 Vintage Hollywood Posters books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack plus a set of our remaining 10 in-print books, plus The Movie Poster Book, plus Crime Scenes, plus plus WHAT IT IS, WHAT IT WAS!, plus the great "flip book" edition of Reel Art, plus FILM POSTERS OF THE RUSSIAN AVANTE-GARDE, the first edition hardcover

WHILE THERE WILL SURELY BE MANY ITEMS THAT SELL FOR HIGH PRICES, THERE ARE ALWAYS SOME (or a lot of) ITEMS THAT GO FOR "BARGAIN" PRICES, AND SHOULDN'T YOU CONSIDER GETTING SOME OF THOSE BARGAINS FOR YOURSELF?  When you consider that you can purchase any 12 items (even the 12 least expensive) from both parts combined, and receive approximately $600 retail in movie poster books (plus a t-shirt), then doesn't it absolutely make sense for you to make an effort to buy 12 items and get those items plus all the bonuses for one low price?

    Don't forget to check out the 751 TUESDAY ITEMS (Part I of our 2010 11th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN MINI/MAJOR AUCTION) on our website sometime BEFORE they end TOMORROW, Tuesday, November 2nd, beginning around 7 PM CST by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html

    And also be sure to check out our 605 THURSDAY ITEMS (Part II of our 2010 11th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN MINI/MAJOR AUCTION) on our website sometime BEFORE they end Thursday, November 4th, beginning around 7 PM CST by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html.

And now you can browse the items in ALL of galleries at one time in our All Auctions gallery!

We know that many of you like to wait for the "last minute" to place your bids, but remember that if you do that, it is easy to either forget to bid or to get busy watching several items and miss the end of some or all of them, so there are also pluses to bidding before the auctions begin to end.  And remember that there surely WILL be lots of last minute bids placed, so just because you have the high bid with a short time to go, you should still go back to the auction right near the end, and see if anyone else outbid you, so you have a chance to re-bid, if you choose to.

Good luck on whatever you may bid on in our current 2010 11th ANNUAL HALLOWEEN MINI/MAJOR AUCTIONS ending on November 2nd and 4th!

P.S. If you have ever registered for our auctions but not logged into your account for over one year, then you will find that your account has been made "inactive", and that you can not place a bid (we do this to make sure that only real bidders bid in our auctions!). Therefore, if it has been a year since you have logged into your account, and you wish to bid in the current auctions, it is important that you contact us at least two hours prior to the end of the auctions, so that we can "re-activate" your account (just click on the contact us link and it will open an e-mail to us with the subject pre-filled in, and we will get your account "re-activated").
Title: Happy Holidays, APF!
Post by: Bruce on December 24, 2010, 05:34:51 PM
Happy Holidays, APF! Here is a slideshow of my five kids through the past 17 years

This is Bruce. Every year for the past 17 years I have printed up special photo holiday cards showing my kids, and I sent them to a group of family members and personal friends. But I have long since converted my business to an entirely Internet-based business, and I no longer print anything for my business and I was thinking, "Why am I still printing holiday cards, and not doing something over the Internet?"!

So I assembled all of the past photo cards (thanks to Angie Fish, who had miraculously saved all the cards, saving me the need of having to search throughout my house!), and one of my employees created a slideshow of them, and I wanted to send you a link to that because I have become personal friends with many of the people I do business with (and some of you have dealt with me in the days of my earliest Sales Catalogs from the early 1990s, when I would include pictures of my first two children!).

Here is the link to the slideshow (and I assure you that it is safe to click on this link):
http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/christmas_cards/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/christmas_cards/)

The years really fly by! It seems like a short time ago when my first son, Holden, was born, and now he is bigger than I am, and my youngest, Lucy, is now in kindergarten!

Happy holidays to all of you, and I hope you all have a great 2011.

Well right now we are at 25. Last summer I hired some high school and college kids and got up to 34, but the right number is around 27 or so, so right now I am looking for a couple of really good people to hire.

As those of you who deal with us know, we won't take the "average" employee. We are always on the lookout for really first rate people who can do their jobs exceptionally, and I never turn such a person down even when we don't really need them, because such people are growing more rare in today's world, where there is so little work ethic, and pride in a job well done.

Title: Ten "found in a barn" lobby cards!
Post by: Bruce on January 18, 2011, 10:18:57 PM
http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=2072529 (http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=2072529)

Note that this lobby card (and nine others we are offering this week) were literally found in a barn, where they had been for the past 78 years! Each of the ten cards have MAJOR condition defects, so we have provided scans of both the front of the card and the back of the card, which allow you to clearly see exactly what condition the cards are in. We are not going to describe them, because you can see what is wrong with them from our images. Note that all of the cards have darkened to different degrees, and all of them are extremely fragile. But certainly, a talented restorer can paperback the card, and after proper restoration, the card will look nice, but it will surely be expensive to restore, and will have somewhat of a "restored" look after restoration, so bear all of this in mind before you place a bid on any of these cards!

Talk is cheap. In my auctions I require that the high bidder actual pay for their purchase within two weeks. Some have called this a "restrictive credit policy", and many other auctions do give 6 months or more to pay, but that results in LOTS of items never getting paid for, which is why you see the same items come up for auction again and again and again, until finally someone pays for it. MY consignors get paid for their items the month after the month in which it was sold, and that is just not true of lots of items at other auctions.

Come the end of Tuesday, this card will have a new home, whatever the final price. I just hope it goes to someone who would have appreciated it as much as you would have!

Title: Everybody" knows that you can't get any "deals" on movie posters anymore!
Post by: Bruce on January 28, 2011, 02:31:09 PM
Everybody" knows that you can't get any "deals" on movie posters anymore!

But in fact, "everybody" is wrong, at least when it comes to OUR auctions! It IS true in many other so-called "$1, No Reserve" auctions, you quickly learn that there is fine print that puts a MASSIVE minimum $14 buyers premium on all purchases, so that "$1, No Reserve" poster ends up costing you FIFTEEN DOLLARS (and sometimes there is exorbitant shipping added on as well)!

But in OUR auctions (at www.eMoviePoster.com), we have NO buyers premiums at all, so a $1 poster is REALLY a $1 poster! And we have the cold hard statistics to back up what we say. In 2010 alone we auctioned a grand total of 93,576 items (more than any other movie paper auction house has auctioned in their entire existence!).

Of those:
6,908 items sold for exactly $1
10,248 items sold for $2 or less
15,764 items sold for $3 or less
20,167 items sold for $4 or less
23,623 items sold for $5 or less
27,703 items sold for $6 or less
31,183 items sold for $7 or less
33,783 items sold for $8 or less
36,596 items sold for $9 or less
38,722 items sold for $10 or less
39,585 items sold for $11 or less
43,268 items sold for $12 or less
45,985 items sold for $13 or less
48,923 items sold for $14 or less

That means that over HALF of the items we auctioned in 2010 sold for under $15! We know that in those auctions with the $14 buyers premiums, they did not sell even ONE item for under $15, because even when an item sells for just $1 in their auctions, the $14 buyers premium brings it to $15, so EVERY item they auction sells for at least $15, plus shipping.

In these uncertain economic times, doesn't it make sense to spend your money where it goes the absolute furthest? We auction everything with a $1 opening bid and no reserves, and we only charge the actual cost of shipping (often less, when a buyer buys multiple items). We regularly give lots of great bonuses, often more valuable than the items required to qualify for them!

Every week, we auction 1,000 to 2,000 items in our Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday auctions combined, and it is a certainty that some fair percentage of them sell for "bargain" prices in every set of auctions, and there are often some absolute "steals"!

Of course, we also sell LOTS of high quality movie paper. In 2010 alone, we auctioned 5,800 items for over $100, and our top item on the year was the GILDA style B one-sheet which auctioned for $25,657!

We ended with $3,362,657 in total sales for 2010 (our all-time record sales year, and our third THREE million dollar year, our eighth consecutive year of two MILLION dollars of sales, and our TWENTY-FIRST consecutive year of ONE million dollar plus sales, and it proves that an honestly run auction absolutely CAN get just as good (or better) results than those who use shady business practices! We broke our total sales results for 2009 (which were $3,302,423.00, which had been our record sales year ever)! Our sales keep rising year after year, while most other auctions keep seeing steadily declining sales.

We auctioned around 8,000 more items in 2010 that we did in 2009, but we auctioned fewer items in our Tuesday and Thursday auctions than we had the previous year (the reason we still increased our total number of items was because of the addition of our Sunday auctions).

So whether you are looking for great deals, or the finest movie paper, or anything in-between, remember that eMoviePoster.com has sold more original vintage movie posters than anyone else in the entire world, and we have been in business for over 21 years!
Title: Absolute proof of the above; 407 one-sheets at $1 w/13 hours to go!
Post by: Bruce on February 03, 2011, 07:13:05 AM
Three times EVERY week we auction hundreds of items that sell for low, low prices (we actually sell lots and lots of items for $1 and $2, and around half of all that we auction goes for $14 and under, and our leading 'competitor" NEVER auctions a single item for less than FIFTEEN DOLLARS, due to their outrageous $14 minimum buyers premium).

But Thursday night's 800 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets (all guaranteed to be originals!), closing tonight, on February 3rd, represent REALLY incredible values, and that includes a lot of REALLY GREAT BARGAINS, because MANY of these are currently languishing at low, low, prices!

With just 13 hours to go, 800 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets include a weird 149 that HAVE NO BID AT ALL! There are also are 407 that are still languishing at just $1 each and a mind-boggling 544 that are $3 each or under! THAT'S RIGHT, OVER HALF OF THESE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY $1 EACH OR HAVE NO BID (AND NEARLY 70% OF THE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY $3 EACH OR UNDER!), AND THAT INCLUDES A LOT THAT MOST DEALERS WOULD ASK $10, $20 OR MORE FOR!!

Why not declare independence from those dealers that have sky high $14 buyers premiums, overgraded items, nosebleed shipping (and they don't combine) etc, etc, etc?

Here's a few examples of the current incredible bargains (and there are dozens of others just as good as these!):
8z220 CHARLIE & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY advance DS 1sh '05 Johnny Depp as WIlly Wonka, Tim Burton! and it's currently $3 and its in VERY GOOD condition!
8z281 CRUMB 1sh '95 underground comic book artist and writer, Robert Crumb! and it's currently $3 and its in VERY GOOD condition!
8z551 JACKIE BROWN teaser 1sh '97 Quentin Tarantino, cool image of Robert De Niro with moustache! and it's currently $3 and its in VERY GOOD condition!
...and there are equally great deals at EVERY bid price from $1 to $20 or more!
HELLO! This is 2011 and I doubt you could have purchased many of these items for $3 (or $1!) 20 years ago (or any time in-between!), and remember that this price is LESS THAN ONE FIFTH (or much less) of the minimum buying price at those "other" auctions (thanks to their ludicrous $14 buyers premiums)!  And you can get as many of these items as you want sent in one package anywhere in the U.S. for just $10 shipping for all (or actual cost anywhere else), EVEN IF you win 100 or more! And if you are in our e-mail club (over 5,800 members), you get great added bonuses if you purchase 10 or 15 or 20 items (no matter how inexpensive)!


About The Rolled 27" x 40" One-Sheet Posters
     Note that we only included 27" x 40" one-sheets in this auction! Sometime in the late 1980s studios began printing their posters in a 27" x 40" format (it was a gradual change). We DO also auction 27" x 41" posters (which are almost all from before 1990), but we do that in a completely separate auction from this one. EVERY POSTER IN THIS AUCTION MEASURES 27" X 40", UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED.
     Also note that most of the posters we are selling this week were never folded. A very few of the posters were once folded (or partially folded, as in tri-folding), but all of those have been stored flat for a long time and will be shipped rolled in tubes, along with the completely unfolded ones.  We will NOT re-fold any of the "formerly folded" posters.  WE ALWAYS IDENTIFY WHETHER A POSTER IS UNFOLDED, TRI-FOLDED, OR FORMERLY FULLY FOLDED WITHIN THE DESCRIPTION FOR EACH ITEM!
About the Originality of Rolled One-Sheets
     Many collectors would like to add posters from their favorite movies of the 1980s onward to their collection, but they rightfully are afraid they will be sold commercial posters (or reproductions or bootlegs), rather than actual posters either used in theaters or intended for theater use.  WHEN YOU BUY FROM US THIS WEEK, YOU HAVE A GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE BUYING A GENUINE ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTERS!  This is because all of these posters come to us either from theater owners, or from advanced collectors (often ones who purchased the posters right when the movies first came out), people who know how to distinguish an original poster, and also, we here at eMoviePoster very carefully scrutinize every poster to make 100% certain it is genuine!  But you don't have to take our word for it!  If you purchase any poster this week, and you have the slightest doubts about its originality after you receive it, it is fine for you to return it for a full refund within 7 days of receipt (but we virtually never get a single poster returned, because we reject any poster that is consigned to us if we have the slightest doubts about it!).

In these days of high starting bids or fourteen dollar minimum buyers premiums, it is a sight for sore eyes to see 800 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets at such low, low prices with just 12 hours to go!

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 5,800+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php!), you get great bonuses if you purchase just 10, 15, or 20 of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on the bonuses (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you).

    Don't forget to check out our 800 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets (all guaranteed to be originals!) sometime BEFORE they end TONIGHT Thursday, February 3rd, (but you only have 13 hours left to do so, because they start ending at 7 PM CST TONIGHT, so hustle over there right now!) by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html

And now you can browse the items in ALL of galleries at one time in our All Auctions gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/all.html!
And you can always access our galleries by using the link from our homepage, http://www.emovieposter.com

Title: Beta testers needed for our all new Auction History Archive!
Post by: Bruce on February 25, 2011, 08:21:35 AM
One of the few criticisms of our business is that our Sales Results Database (with over half a million entries) and our Poster Image Archive (with over a third of a million images) were too cumbersome to work in, and everyone wanted the two combined.

Well, we now have the beta version of the combined Auction History Archive, at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html)!

We are looking for some of you who already used both the old databases regularly to test this new database and report any bugs you find (or suggestions for improvements) to us at phillip@emovieposter.com

We think you will LOVE this new vastly improved combined database!

Nice.

I typed in Back to the Future and hit search.  Got a lot of hits for other movies, such as Cape Fear.  Maybe 1/3 of the page was for unrelated material.

The old interface had the ability to filter on titles, actors, size, etc.  It would be nice to have something where I could only get 1/2 sheets of anything titled BTTF released in 1985.

But I loved the amount of new detail available, like detailed condition of that particular item. It was also nice to be able to link directly to active auctions.

Tried it after seeing the post in MoPo, and loved the new archive  clap  Aside from the amount of unrelated material that you get, one issue I did find was when I did a search for OUR GANG and filtered for "Condition (best to least) & (least to best)" the results were backwards: (least to best) started with NM stills & (best to least) started with posters in poor condition.  I sent an email to Philip to address these small glitches

Bruce, this is awesome!!!!!!  sm1
I've been wondering when you were going to combine the results for some time now

And yes, to echo Rich's words: Being able to make payments directly on your website would be the next best step for your site (in my opinion).

Best,

We are working on adding new features to our online checkout, and some will be coming soon, but being able to completely pay online (by any method) will likely take to the end of the year.

Post by: Bruce on February 27, 2011, 09:32:00 AM
We have already started implementing many of the suggestions we have received (some are far easier to accomplish than others).

We have made it so that when you search for say "casablanca" you first see all results for that movie, followed by all other results that just happen to mention the word "casablanca".

Soon we will add a box that gives you the choice of "search titles only" or "search titles and descriptions" so that you will then easily only see "casablanca" results, but until then, the above is helpful.

Please know that we look closely at every single response and suggestion we receive, and the only reason we don't immediately implement something is because it is too difficult to accomplish right away, SO PLEASE RETURN TO THIS DATABASE IN A FEW DAYS (when you will surely see some changes) and see if you can make any other suggestions on how to make it better!

Thanks to everyone who has responded!

Title: Our physical location is 33% bigger & our Mini/major has doubled in size!
Post by: Bruce on March 06, 2011, 10:46:01 AM
More BIG news this week: We have expanded the size of eMoviePoster.com's physical location by around 33%
     Last week we reported the big news that we had finally put our all new Auction History Archive online for testing (see below). This week brings more big news, which is that we have expanded the size of eMoviePoster.com's physical location by around 25%. How did this happen? As many of you know, for ten years I have owned an entire city block in the heart of downtown West Plains. For that entire time, I have rented approximately one quarter of that space to the local cable company. Over those ten years both of our businesses have grown to where we were both practically bursting at the seams.
     The cable company finally reached the point where they needed much larger quarters, so they have moved out, and it came at a very opportune time, for that allows us to take over all of their space and increase our physical location by around 33%. We will be re-arranging several parts of our operation so as to make everything more efficient, and to utilize the new space in the best possible way.
     Not only were we overflowing in our present area, but we also have had a huge FLOOD of new consignments the past few months. Some of these have been from collectors (many of whom have expressed disenchantment with the treatment they received from other auction houses) and some of them have been from dealers (many of whom seem to have partially or completely given up on selling their items themselves, because eBay has grown so greedy that it hardly makes sense to list there anymore, and more and more dealers are discovering that they can get the same or more from consigning to us as selling themselves (while doing no work at all). Others solely use us to move their unwanted inventory (to free up cash and space for new acquisitions).
     But of course we auction items SO rapidly that we always need new consignments, so please keep them coming! We have streamlined and improved every aspect of our business over the past few years that we now auction items far more quickly than ever, even when we are sent thousands of items at a time.
     What's next for eMoviePoster.com? The only thing stopping us from expanding even more (in terms of the size of our overall operation) is more quality employees. We have the best staff in West Plains, and I don't want to compromise on that in the least, so I won't hire anyone new unless I have the strong sense they will be on a par with our existing employees (and I doubt any of you would want me to feel any differently about this). Unfortunately, the nature of our business requires that our employees are physically present each day, or we would likely be quickly able to hire more people (greater West Plains has only around 20,000 people).

Even more BIG News: We have expanded the size of our March Non-US & Non-Movie Mini/Major Auction from two parts to four parts!
     The deadline for this set of auctions has now passed (unless you have just a few exceptional items, in which case we MIGHT be able to squeeze them in). We received so many truly excellent items that we had to first expand this to three parts and then again to four parts (which will start on March 29th, March 31st, April 3rd, and April 5th).
     Next week we will give you a few previews of what will be in these auctions. So many so called major auctions have a huge "round up the usual suspects" look and feel to them, trotting out the exact same posters over and over (and one wonders if many of them ever really sold on some or all of their many previous trips to the auction block).
     But in our mini/major auctions you will see LOTS of posters we have never had before, and when you do see a "repeated" item, it is rarely the exact same item returning to the auction block (this only happens when an item is never paid for or when the high bidder re-consigns the item, but those are truly rare occurrences in our auctions.
     Prepare to be dazzled by the FOUR parts of our March Non-US & Non-Movie Mini/Major Auction and start saving your money now (but remember that this is one major auction where there is no "For Millionaires Only" sign at the door, and that we have NO buyers premiums (20% or otherwise) and that we give a great bonus t-shirt to EVERY buyer in this set of auctions).

Title: A look back at our site over the past 13 years!
Post by: Bruce on May 25, 2011, 08:09:03 PM
A look back at our site over the past 13 years, and excellent suggestions on how to improve it further!
Recently I was posting on a movie poster forum, and I saw a post that was very critical of one of the very oldest movie poster sites, and also one of the most informative. I posted a response, and invited that person to tell me what was wrong with the eMoviePoster.com site. Here was his reply"
     "You have invited criticism of your site, and I have to say that it is very dated. Your site is using pre 1996 obsolete code, eg:<font size="2" face="Verdana">>Also unstyled 'Search' buttons are so early 1990's. Look at the top few inches of your home page - the many different fonts are what web designers describe as a ransom note page.
     That is what websites looked like in the 1990's, like ransom notes. Your site is better coded than some other sites, but not that much better. Whoever has been coding the CSS styles needs to redo it much more efficiently. CSS has been around for 15 years with countless webpages on how to use it properly. Take the CSS in the <head> of all your pages for example. That code should go into a seperate CSS file, as it currently contributes to a slower page load having it embedded on all your pages, but that is just the start of the CSS problems. I am sorry to be so critical, but you HAVE requested site feedback Bruce!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: I have no doubt that what this fellow posted is true (he is obviously very knowledgeable!). These problems stem from the fact that our site was created in 1998, and that I did not have the money available at that time to hire experienced site designers, so it was first designed by Eli Post, and then a succession of amateur site designers added to it over and over. Of course, had I known then how huge it would grow, I would have taken a very different approach, but I only have to consider where I am now.
     I have passed these comments along to those who program the site, and they will begin implementing the changes suggested, and many others as well, for they have been fully aware of these problems for some time! Then why have they not already fixed it?
     Part of the problem is that there is so much to accomplish not only on the website, but also internally. For instance, in the last couple of years, our programmers have mostly been focused on our internal systems such as our consignment database (where we enter all consignments we receive as they get prepared for auction) and our invoicing system (both the "in development" checkout AND the backend that customers do not see). This is largely how we've been able to greatly increase the quantity that we sell each week and still maintain & improve the quality of our auctions.
     But please know that we have many plans coming up and we're going to use these suggestions to help direct the order in which we implement some of these plans.
     First we're finishing up the new Auction History http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html which we've just recently taken out of "beta mode". We're also working on improved tracking number e-mails rather than depending on UPS and the Post Office's systems.
     Next, we will begin work on some redesigning of the website including proper CSS usage. We've got some ideas for visual improvements that should over time bring the site into the 21st century!

     In the meantime, to get a sense of just how FAR our site has progressed since 1998, we invite all of you to take a look at what our site looked like back in the 1990s and earlier 2000s at these links (NOTE: These links come from "The Internet Wayback Machine" and many images are broken and the links don't work, but you can still get a sense of how our site has evolved):

Title: Will anyone please explain to me...?
Post by: Bruce on June 16, 2011, 07:13:01 PM
Will anyone please explain to me  how this LINENBACKED Italian one-panel can be only $33 with only a short time to go:
2w263 SUPERMAN linen Italian 1p '79 comic book hero Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Marlon Brando?

Or this one: 2w265 TWO ENGLISH GIRLS linen Italian 1p '72 Francois Truffaut, Jean-Pierre Leaud, art by Gasparri! which is only $37?

I am certain someone paid $200 or more to have these backed, and these are just TWO of lots and lots of incredible deals waiting to be had in Part III of our Mini/Major auctions which start closing in less than an hour.

If YOU are someone who has been asking where the great deals on posters are, ask no more! Just go to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/3/14.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/3/14.html) and you'll will find lots of low priced great posters that will amaze you!

No wall space, linen is turning into the red headed step child for this generation of poster collectors, what the hell is Two English Girls, would rather have a Paul poster up on the wall  ;D

Just a quick overview.

1) Linen sucks if not framing.
2) Linen sucks, it hides previous flaws.
3) Linen sucks.
4) Hot auction material is no longer linen backed, but original state.

Classic title, unique image and a size that is hard to manage without LB???

I figure I will never understand why these things sell for the prices they do, especially how much they vary week to week.  I only bought a single item, as prices seemed quite high on stuff I was interested in.  I think there is a factor of anticipation.  This was built up as a "MAJOR" auction, so the expectations were for higher prices.  Two weeks ago were relative bargains because everybody was holding back waiting for the big show.

Title: Re: Will anyone please explain to me...?
Post by: ddilts399 on June 16, 2011, 10:54:20 PM
 clap well done on that one. I will confess multi-pieced material linen backed has a little more acceptance factor as using linen is probably better than duct tape.

That title does have a big 3 cast, and although I really wouldn't spend more then 5.00 on that one, the star power probably drove the price on it (and you had a 4 way bidding war going on too, which doesnt hurt!)
Title: Our Summer 2011 Mini/Major Auction is now complete!
Post by: Bruce on June 18, 2011, 10:10:31 AM
Our Summer 2011 Mini/Major Auction is now complete, and the three parts took in a total of $269,968, and the 1,534 items sold to 504 different buyers!

Overall, the total of the auctions exceeded our expectations by a wide margin, and we know that a major reason for this is because of all the great added bonuses we offered every buyer (all told, the bonuses cost us well over $10,000!), and also because of our super-honest descriptions and images, and most of all, because of what we DON'T offer, which is any buyers premium, nosebleed shipping, or lack of customer service!
Title: WE GOT MAIL, and our auctions have a "Watch" feature
Post by: Bruce on July 24, 2011, 01:19:28 PM
WE GOT MAIL: Here are some e-mails we have received over the past few weeks:
1) "I wanted to inform you that I received the items I purchased, and I am really delighted! The package was really professionally packed and shipped, and nothing was damaged or lost. The items themselves are splendid, and are as described, only better! Thank you so much for this fantastic transaction! I wish you all the best"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks for your shining compliments! We do have a great group of people here that work hard, and we are also fortunate to receive lots of good consignments such as the items you received.

2) "I was looking at the Casablanca lobby cards you auctioned a while back. Knowing that the film was in black and white and yet the lobby cards are in color, got me thinking: did this happen a lot back then? I know you're super busy, but I was just wondering."
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Yes, it did certainly happen a lot. We've also seen color films with black and white cards! I would think this is largely a budget issue: major films would have more effort put into the cards resulting in the color images for black and white films. Know that many years ago I mistakenly thought that the people who "colorized" the lobby cards for black and white movies were looking at a color reference image, but in fact I have since learned that they actually simply just used whatever colors they liked! So those CASABLANCA lobby cards don't tell us what color clothes the stars wore (and in fact, because the cards were printed in more than one location in 1942, you might see Bogart with a blue shirt in one card and a red shirt on another example of the exact same card). But it is still really cool to see those great scenes in color, when watching the movie you see only black and white!

3) "I am new to being a consignor, but you have now auctioned the items I sent this first time, and with only one exception [a WC] I haven't been disappointed with the results. You all do a wonderful job and your patience and kindness with consigners and buyers like myself is most appreciated. Best to you all!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks also for your kind words! We are fortunate to have so many talented people here that "make it all happen", so that consignors (and buyers) are treated well every step of the way.

4) "You made a very small error in my order and I let you know what it was before it was sent, and you quickly responded and corrected it and sent my order correctly! Thank you very much for your taking care of this and I very appreciate the fast and easy communication with you. You already helped me a lot as to a newcomer to your website. I know you are continuing to try to improve your checkout, and it does have many obstacles so far, but I can see you are doing your best for the comfort of your customers and that's the most important thing! Good luck!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thank you! Your understanding means a lot to us. Please do let me know any time you find something confusing OR just have a suggestion on how we might improve our checkout (or any part of our website) as we welcome any input we are given.

5) "Just a quick e-mail to let you know that the 2 CDs that I recently purchased have arrived safely in the UK and the packaging was great and I didn't even get stung by Customs. At the same time I want to relate a recent transaction that I have had with one of your competitors in the U.S. I recently purchased from them a poster with a bid price of $220 and of course with the 19.5% commission this took the price to $262.90. I then had to opt to have it shipped by Fed Ex Economy, with the costs would be determined after they had shipped the item. But they apparently have a rule that any item that has an invoice value of over $250 and is paid by either Credit Card or Paypal, can't be shipped by Fed Ex Economy, and instead has to be shipped by regular Fed Ex, so they changed to that method without informing me. The Package was shipped a few days ago and I have just been notified of the cost, which is $104.67, for the shipping! Needless to say I don't think that I will be making any further purchases through them. Keep up the good work and all my best wishes."
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: I hear this kind of story all the time, which is why we refer to such charges as "nosebleed shipping"! We really do make a great effort to make every step of every transaction go smoothly, and we ALWAYS make certain each customer approves exactly how their order will be sent, and we feel certain our competitors fail to do that, as your story illustrates. Thanks for sharing this.

6) "I just wanted to take a minute to tell you that I really like the new photo button on each item. It's much more convenient if you just want to see the item rather than checking all of it's particulars. Good idea."
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks for letting us know how much you like it! It is one of those things that make so much sense that I wonder why we didn't think of it sooner. We'll keep working to come up with other simple but useful features. We already have a lot of similar ideas in the works that we plan to unveil in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for more improvements.

7) "I love the posters I have been purchasing in your auctions and I think they are under-valued and I'll keep buying them from you. I have stopped buying posters from any other source; I only buy from your site now. Thanks again"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE:  Thanks very much for your very kind words. It really does save you lots and lots of shipping when you buy ten items from us rather than from ten different sellers, and it is so nice to not have to wonder whether your purchases will be in the same condition that the seller promised they would be in!

8) "I just discovered that you have now have an Auction History which contains images AND past selling prices. It's bigger and better than the old Archive. I just found a couple of wonderful images I had never seen before!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: I'm glad you discovered the Auction History and that you like it better too. We agree it is a MAJOR improvement over the two old databases. We'll continue seeking ways to make it better and better.

9) "Your new "AUCTION HISTORY" is terrific. It is a great aid for poster collectors"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks for your kind note! Our programmers have put a LOT of work into it. We plan to make it even better over the coming months!

10) "I received the lobby cards I purchased today. As usual, prompt shipping, very well packaged and great condition. You guy's run a great operation and I am most appreciative!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks! That means a lot! Please do let us know if we ever make a mistake of any kind. The biggest single difference between us and all the rest is not that we never make mistakes, but that when we do we promptly respond to you and do all we can to make it right!

11) "You told me that you were able to combine all my auction wins into one package, and that I had therefore overpaid on shipping, and what's more, I had also done so last time, so I now have TWO credits on my account for refunded shipping! Thank you so much. I appreciate the time you took to combine the shipping on these. Heck, I didn't even know I had either credit! You guys need to get a feedback system set up so I can write some good things for the newbies to read about eMoviePoster.com...ha ha!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks so much. We are glad that you would like to leave feedback, but our auctions have no feedback system (since we are the only seller, there would be little benefit). But we DID run your kind words here in the club, so you did leave "feedback" in that way!

12) "We sent you a big group of stills we had sitting here for years in our store and you auctioned some of them for us and we have netted over $2,000 so far on just those, and all I can say is I LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! Especially, since a number of those stills we couldn't "give" them away at our shop over many years time. Best of all, we did no work at all. As my brother is fond of saying, 'It is so nice to make money while you sleep.' It's true:) Thanks again!"
     RESPONSE FROM BRUCE: Thanks for the kind words. I know the feeling you are describing, and it really is like "finding money"! We are nearing EIGHT HUNDRED different consignors, and once one of them discovers just how much easier it is to let us do the work for them (and how they almost always net far more money than they could selling them any other way) they usually stick with consigning to us until they have nothing left to sell!

The clock on the clubhouse wall tells me I have no more time for e-mails, but remember that ALL e-mails we receive are replied to personally (but only the ones of general interest are printed here in the club, and I only do so every once a month at best, when I actually have some spare time!).

Did you know... that our auctions have a Watch List feature?
     Our auctions have a Watch List feature that allows you mark items to "watch". This is useful if you want to come back later to review the items either to place bids or if you are just curious to see how the items do at auction.

There are three main ways you can add an item to your Watch List:

    * From our galleries (such as the Tuesday Gallery), there is a Watch button () for each item. Clicking it will open a new window, add that item to your Watch List, and show you your current Watch List.
       
    * From an item's auction page at the top where it shows you the auction details (current price, time left, high bidder, etc.), look at the left where there are four blue buttons. The third button is "add to watchlist". When you click on that, it will add the item to your "Watch List" and show you your current Watch List items.
       
    * By default, when you bid on an item, it is automatically added to your Watch List (see below for details of how to change this default setting).

There are also some settings available to you. To change these settings, go to your My Account page. Then at right, under the Preferences section, click "Bidding". Here are the settings (NOTE: By default, both are set to "Yes"):

    * Automatically add items I bid on to my Watch List
    * Automatically notify me via e-mail when items on my Watch List are about to close (e-mail sent day prior to closing)

Finally, you may view your Watch List by going here: http://auctions.emovieposter.com/WatchList.taf. Once on that page, there are sort sorting options at the top of the page. Additionally, you may check boxes of some items and then click "Clear Checked Items" to remove them from the list.

I HAVE run some very critical e-mails (and some mildly critical ones) over the years, but I truthfully get very few of those. Most of the people who have anything bad about me (or eMoviePoster.com) are those who like to bid and then never pay, and then re-surface after a few months and expect to be welcomed back with open arms or are dealers who feel (rightly or wrongly) that eMoviePoster.com is a large part of why their business is in the crapper, and both groups of people tend to not e-mail us.

I observe that reading is a dying art, so I may not continue my Weekly E-mail club much longer. Maybe 550 weeks is enough to cover everything!

We have 900 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets (all guaranteed to be originals!) at auction that are getting ready to close, and there are some excellent ones, but also lots of inexpensive ones as well. There are just 12 hours to go before they start to end TONIGHT Thursday, August 4th.

I just looked over the current prices on these just about to end items, and the prices on many of them are really hard to believe! With just 12 hours to go, the 900 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets include a wackadoodle 89 that have no bid at all, 309 that are still languishing at just $1 each or have no bid, a silly 351 that are $2 each or under, and a Mt. Everest-like 482 that are $4 each or under! THAT'S RIGHT, WELL OVER HALF OF THESE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY $4 EACH OR UNDER (AND ONE THIRD OF THE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY $1 EACH OR HAVE NO BID!), AND THAT INCLUDES A LOT THAT MOST DEALERS WOULD ASK $10, $20 OR MORE FOR!

IF YOU WANT TO BUY ORIGINAL RELEASE ONE SHEETS FROM THE BEST MOVIES OF THE PAST 20 YEARS, AND DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO FEAR YOU ARE GETTING STUCK WITH A REPRO (or have it arrive in a crushed tube), BUT ALSO DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO PAY AN ARM AND A LEG TO DO SO, THEN THIS SET OF AUCTIONS IS FOR YOU. BECAUSE YOU CAN BUY MANY OF THESE POSTERS FOR FAR UNDER WHAT YOU MIGHT PAY FOR A REPRO, AND HAVE A GUARANTEED ORIGINAL!

Are you tired of auctions for millionaires only where the items have a "round up the usual suspects" feel to them, and there is a "pay retail or you can't buy" philosophy behind the auctions, and the same items return to the auction block over and over and over? Well, we have the antidote for you! Three times EVERY week we auction hundreds of items that sell for low, low prices (we actually sell lots and lots of items for $1 and $2, and around half of all that we auction goes for $14 and under, and our leading "competitor" NEVER auctions a single item for less than FIFTEEN DOLLARS, due to their outrageous $14 minimum buyers premium).

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 6,200+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php!), you get great bonuses if you purchase just 10 or 15 or 20 of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on the bonuses (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you).

Don't forget to check out our 900 rolled 27" x 40" one-sheets (all guaranteed to be originals!) sometime BEFORE they end TONIGHT Thursday, August 4th, (but you only have 12 hours left to do so, because they start ending at 7 PM CST TONIGHT, so hustle over there right now!) by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html

I just looked over the prices with a couple of hours to go, and I'm not a religious man, but Jesus, Mary, and Joseph are those prices low! Most of them are still far less than the cost of a reproduction! Buy any 20 and join our club and get 15 books that retail for $300 as a bonus!

For those of us, idiots, who collect modern posters, Bruce's auctions are a good reminder that we are not such morons after all.  I am always amazed at what some recent titles can fetch nowadays.  Fascinating, really.

Hey, it is absolutely the strongest part of the hobby right now. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if someday we see a catalog auction with the "Thierry" collection, and it goes for a million bucks!

Of course, by then, with our politicians spending like there is no tomorrow, a million bucks MIGHT buy you a nice car!

Most collector interest is the 1990s and 2000s. But most appreciation (price rise) right now is prime 1970s and 1980s. Of course it is mostly the "better" titles. The "cheese" (sorry, Thierry) is mostly going nowhere.

Most 1960s and earlier items have leveled off at best. Look at Heritage's results (even assuming the buyers paid every time) for proof.

But, as usual, the only time that counts is the last ten minutes.  Everything I was looking at went from bargains to market value right at the end, just like always.

I have been the underbidder on that Cotton Club International multiple times and was determined to finally win it.  I did, but right until the end it looked like I could be getting a bargain.  Someone extended the bidding twice and the final price was fair, but absolutely at market value.

I noticed you put in an appearance there as well.  The final was fair, but they have been going for $110-130 of late, so $98 was a good but not great price.  Now the $74 it was at with 30 seconds left would have been good for bragging rights.

I'm actually pretty happy I finally snagged one.

I already own this poster, and I know its value, so if I can snag one at a low price, I try to.  Obviously, I would have not gone higher than I did, but I would have been very happy to own a 2nd copy for $50.

Title: Re: Do you have vintage movie posters to sell?
Post by: Bruce on August 09, 2011, 07:55:54 PM
It is funny how it goes sometimes. We were getting pretty caught up on old consignments.  But then last week, a former theater owner dropped off NINE THOUSAND 1980s to present one-sheets, and a former exchange employee dropped off 500 posters from the 1950s and 1960s.

Today was an amazingly hectic day, with two different collector/dealers from way back driving here with trucks of their collections/inventory, and to top it off, a guy dropped off 300 circus posters!

This is why we don't have to advertise. When you get better prices, charge lower commissions and fees, and are 100% honest to boot, they come to you without being asked!

Of course, when you auction TWO THOUSAND items every week, you can always use more!

Bruce

P.S. About that 100% honesty. Not one of the above five people made a listing of what they dropped off. One said, "I know you well enough to know you are more honest than I am"! And they are right, because there is ZERO chance I would cheat them in any way!
Title: I have helped many online sellers get free from eBay!
Post by: Bruce on August 11, 2011, 07:55:52 AM
Over the years I gave many online sellers advice on how to best leave eBay in part or in whole (because I foresaw the collapse of eBay for many individual sellers). I just received this nice thank you from one of the sellers I helped:

"Bruce - Just a quick note to say Hi - and a big thank you. eBay continues to self destruct - we utilize them for the marketing aspect and little else. The exit strategy (your exit strategy) has exceeded our wildest expectations. We are doin...g betting and better on our own dot com now - our Amazon site ecplipses ebays numbers at its peak (years ago) and we are on a 68% growth plane for four years running now. Had it not been for your advice and counsel regarding the ebay exit strategy my life would be very diffrent today than it is. I am forever grateful, as are my 9 full time employees and having turned 50 this year I look forward to full retirement by age 59. Jerry at www.theholsterstore.com"

Title: WE NOW ARE GIVING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SETS OF BONUS BOOKS
Post by: Bruce on August 13, 2011, 12:02:02 PM
IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECEIVED A SET OF OUR BONUS BOOKS (or if you are missing some of the below books) THEN JOIN OUR CLUB AND DON'T PUT OFF QUALIFYING FOR ONE OR BOTH SETS, BECAUSE ONCE THESE ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE FOREVER!

IMPORTANT! We have given away most of the free bonus books we had, and we now ARE GIVING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SETS OF BONUS BOOKS (and our supplies of those are dwindling quickly as well)!
     Sometime before the end of this year we will be largely ending our giving of free books as bonuses altogether, because we have so few of them left to give away! We HAD been giving away our Vintage Hollywood Poster catalogs to those who purchased 10 or more items in a single set of auctions, our remaining "Illustrated History" volumes to those who purchased 15 or more items in a single set of auctions, and BOTH of these sets to those who purchased 20 or more items in a single set of auctions!

BUT NOW OUR SUPPLIES OF THESE ARE SO LOW THAT WE ARE GIVING ENTIRELY DIFFERENT SETS OF BONUS BOOKS (and our supplies of those are dwindling quickly as well so your time to get those is extremely limited).

What we have done is to gather up all the remaining books we have to give away, and created two sets of them. One is for those who purchase 10 or more items, one for those who purchase 15 or more, and those who purchase 20 or more get both sets ABSOLUTELY FREE as bonuses!

NOTE THAT THESE SETS INCLUDE SOME OF OUR PREVIOUSLY SOLD OUT BOOKS, BECAUSE GIVING SO MANY AWAY HAS ALLOWED US TO REORGANIZE OUR WAREHOUSE, AND WE FOUND SOME OF THE SOLD OUT ONES!


Here is the set of SEVEN full-color books we give to those who purchase 10 items in a single set of auctions (while our supplies last!):
Cartoon Movie Posters (long sold out!) - original retail $20
Texas at the Movies - original retail $20
Warner Bros Movie Posters at Auction - original retail $20
John Wayne Movie Posters - original retail $20
Hollywood & Early Cinema - original retail $30
More Cowboy Movie Posters - original retail $20
60 Great Cowboy Movie Posters - original retail $14.95

Here is the set of SIX full-color books we give to those who purchase 10 items in a single set of auctions (while our supplies last!):
Attack of the "B" Movie Posters - original retail $20
Drive-In Movie Posters - original retail $20
Who Goes There? - original retail $20
Sports Movie Posters (long sold out!) - original retail $20
Rock, Pop, & Classic Cinema Posters (long sold out!) - original retail $30
Comedy Movie Posters (long sold out!) - original retail $20

We imagine we have enough of the above to give them away for a couple of months (at the most) and then at that point our days of giving sets of bonus books will likely end forever, so IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECEIVED A SET OF BONUS BOOKS (or if you are missing some of the above books) THEN DON'T PUT OFF QUALIFYING FOR ONE OR BOTH SETS, BECAUSE ONCE THESE ARE GONE, THEY ARE GONE FOREVER!

Title: Legendary collector/dealer Marty Davis tells where to sell your movie paper!
Post by: Bruce on September 04, 2011, 07:43:20 AM
Our latest ad features a single testimonial from legendary longtime collector/dealer Marty Davis!
     We at eMoviePoster.com have had over 800 collectors and dealers consign to our auctions, far more than any other movie poster auction house. Yet we do next-to-no paid advertising to find those consignors, because every month brings lots of new consignors who were referred to us, often by one of our present consignors.

Some of our consignors only find us AFTER they have consigned elsewhere, and often they tell us long sad stories of their experiences consigning elsewhere, and we reassure them that they will have a completely different experience consigning to us, and we encourage them to start with a small consignment, because we KNOW that after they have consigned once, they are likely to keep consigning until they have nothing left they want to sell!

We thought we would ask our present consignors to tell us how they felt about consigning to us, and we received so many great replies that we will be running not one, but a series of ads with those responses! We ran our first one a month ago with responses from four consignors.

Go here to view the second ad, a testimonial from legendary longtime collector/dealer Marty Davis (who has run live auctions himself, and who has been a major seller on the eBay site, and who has collected in a wide range of areas, but particularly on Charlie Chaplin and silent comedians, for well over 40 years!):
http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/20110829_ad_mcw_marty_davis_ad.jpg

If YOU have been "on the fence" about consigning to us, read the above and see if it doesn't make sense for you to send us a package so you can see why just about EVERY dealer (and hundreds of collectors) have been consigning to us (many of them for years, some for 20 years, as Marty Davis has)!

Did you know... that we've auctioned many times more movie posters than anyone else in the world?
     We have long made the above statement, and EVERYONE in the hobby (including our competitors) knows it to be true, but we wanted to back this up with hard cold facts that show how our total sales dwarf everyone else's!

Our database is incredibly accurate since the beginning of the 21st century on January 1, 2001 (not 2000, as some people erroneously think!). Since that date, we have auctioned the following quantities:

307,812 total lobby cards auctioned
226,815 Total one-sheets auctioned
217,680 Total 8x10 stills auctioned

So we have auctioned around three quarters of a million of just those three sizes! And remember that those totals don't include the 15 million or so dollars of movie paper we sold from 1990 to the end of 2000!

With all the great posters upcoming in our Fall Mini/Major auctions, it's easy to forget about the INCREDIBLE BARGAINS on the 800 non-U.S. posters we have closing tonight, the 6th! Read on for more details:

Are you tired of auctions for millionaires only where the items have a "round up the usual suspects" feel to them, and there is a "pay retail or you can't buy" philosophy behind the auctions, and the same items return to the auction block over and over and over? Well, we have the antidote for you! Three times EVERY week we auction hundreds of items that sell for low, low prices (we actually sell lots and lots of items for $1 and $2, and around half of all that we auction goes for $14 and under, and our leading "competitor" NEVER auctions a single item for less than FIFTEEN DOLLARS, due to their outrageous $14 minimum buyers premium). But Tuesday night's THE WORLD OF MOVIE POSTERS! 800 non-U.S. posters from 21 different countries, closing tonight, on TUESDAY September 6th, represent REALLY incredible values, and yet many of these are currently languishing at low, low, prices!

With just 12 hours to go, the 800 non-U.S. posters include a not-to-be-believed 24 with no bid at all, a preposterous 135 that are still languishing at just $1 each or have no bid, a a downright silly 201 that are still languishing at just $2 each or under, an outrageous 298 that are still languishing at just $3 each or under, and a Mt Everest-like 389 that are $5 each and under! THAT'S RIGHT, JUST UNDER HALF OF THE ITEMS ARE $5 EACH OR UNDER (AND 37% ARE JUST $3 EACH OR UNDER), and there are LOTS of titles that I guarantee you many dealers would ask $10, $20 or more for. This is the closest thing to "free money" I can imagine (especially since those in our club can purchase any 20 and get 13 books as a bonus)!

HELLO! This is 2011 and I doubt you could have purchased many of these items for $5 (or far under) 20 years ago, and remember that this price is ONE THIRD (or much less) of the minimum buying price at those "other" auctions (thanks to their ludicrous $14 buyers premiums)!  And you can get as many of these items as you want sent in one package anywhere in the U.S. for just $11 shipping for all (or actual cost anywhere else), EVEN IF you win 100 or more! And if you are in our e-mail club (over 6,300 members), you get great added bonuses if you purchase 10 or 15 or 20 items (no matter how inexpensive)!

Of course, once you get OVER just $5, you start hitting lots and lots of "better" titles, but an awful lot of those are currently at VERY reasonable prices, far under what some of them have sold for in the past (the ones we can find any record of selling in the past!).

In these days of high starting bids or fourteen dollar minimum buyers premiums, it is a sight for sore eyes to see 800 non-U.S. posters at such low, low prices with just 12 hours to go!

THIS SET OF AUCTIONS INCLUDES MANY TRULY EXCELLENT BARGAINS, MANY OF WHICH ARE CURRENTLY AT "WHOLESALE" PRICES  OR UNDER WITH JUST A FEW HOURS TO GO! IF YOU HAVE BEEN ASKING "WHERE ARE THE GREAT DEALS?", ASK NO MORE BECAUSE THEY ARE RIGHT HERE! This is ESPECIALLY true of the items that are just a few dollars each, as many would sell for $20 or more each on any dealer's website!

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 6,300+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php!), you get great bonuses if you purchase just 10 or 15 or 20 of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on the bonuses (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you).

    Don't forget to check out our THE WORLD OF MOVIE POSTERS! 800 non-U.S. posters from 21 different countries sometime BEFORE they end TONIGHT Tuesday, September 6th, (but you only have 12 hours left to do so, because they start ending at 7 PM CST TONIGHT, so hustle over there right now!) by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html

And now you can browse the items in ALL of galleries at one time in our All Auctions gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/all.html!
And you can always access our galleries by using the link from our homepage, http://www.emovieposter.com.

Here is a link to a preview gallery of the LINEN U.S. one-sheets [there will also be non-backed one-sheets as well!] (click on any image to see a larger image):

Come on, Bruce, you guys have got to spice up that incredibly lame - and that's being diplomatic -  description for the Lucky Strikes Pulp Fiction. (http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=2296818) Right now it reads:

4w413 PULP FICTION linen advance 1sh '94 Quentin Tarantino, c/u of sexy Uma Thurman smoking in bed!

"Note that this poster was designed to look like a beat up old movie poster, and the "flaws" are in the image, and are not actual defects! Also note that this is an advance one-sheet (note the "Coming soon to a theatre near you" at the bottom of the poster)."

It should say Pulp Fiction Extremely Rare Recalled "Lucky Strikes" Advance!

This first advance poster for Pulp Fiction is one of the "holy grails" in the hobby and almost never comes up for auction.  Miramax recalled it after RJ Reynolds threatened to sue because the poster featured a pack of its “Lucky Strike” cigarettes without permission.  The studio also failed to get permission to use the book “Harlot In Her Heart."  The studio later used a similar poster showing a generic pack of cigarettes and the book “Pulp Fiction” instead.

Since relatively few of these first advance posters were printed - no one knew the movie would be a monster hit - and because very few posters survived the recall, they are extremely rare and valuable! Don't miss your chance to land this baby!

It should be crystal clear to everyone reading the below that I want to make bonus offers with the current Fall 2011 Mini/Major Auctions, so that EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU READING THIS will find it "irresistible" to get one or more items from any of the three parts of this auction (these offers are IN ADDITION TO our great limited edition t-shirt you get for purchasing any one item in any of the three parts), and that many of you will make the effort to get FIVE or more items from the three parts combined, so that you can get bunches of added bonuses!
Title: An auction with Thierry, Holiday, marklawd, Harry Caul, Brian & others in mind!
Post by: Bruce on September 27, 2011, 09:49:23 PM
We were consigned a large cool collection of English one-sheets and international style U.S. one-sheets, so we put them all at the start of our next folded one-sheet auction that starts tonight, when out current Tuesday items end, and they end next Tuesday.  I might be wrong, but I would think several of you may not have a fair number of the ones with different images. Here are more details:

HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION:
(to better help you find the sizes and countries that interest you)

5f001-5f023 English one-sheets
5f024-5f168 U.S. international style one-sheets
5f169-5f999 U.S. one-sheets

About the English and U.S. international style one-sheets
     English one-sheets (printed in England) often have different artwork from U.S. one-sheets, and studios would sometimes create sexier images for those posters. The same is true for "international styles" of U.S. one-sheets. We have had small quantities of both of these over the years, but we were just consigned an excellent collection that contains 23 English one-sheets and 145 U.S. international style one-sheets, and we have put them all in this auction, and they are separated at the beginning of the auction. This is a rare opportunity to purchase these posters, some of which have images that are not on any other English language poster!

Here's a sample:

That is an awesome set of auctions, Bruce.  A big fan of the one sheet format, myself, and the fact that some of those are ultra rare and have better artwork than many of the U.S. one sheets makes them pretty darn cool IMO.

Halloween is not like the other mini/majors. I include EVERYTHING horror sci-fi (from the best to the dregs) so that there are posters and lobby cards for every collector, not just the ones with deep pockets.

So you can get a $2 poster and a free $11 t-shirt (and NO $14 buyers premium). Who could ask for anything more?

I had been saying that we have 2,100 items in the three parts of our Halloween auction, but I was completely forgetting how many duplicated items were submitted.

I have just added up the total items that were NOT duplicates, and the count is a paltry 1,947.

Please forgive me. However I still stand by my assertion that THIS is the Halloween auction to end all Halloween auctions, and that it will blow your mind.

Re auctions in general including MPGrading certificates:...
Only way to prove the certificate is for that poster, is to pay MPGrading to analyse the dna they impregnate onto the poster. Can you do this before the auction ends, no. The certificate is worthless to a buyer unless it can be validated before purchase. If the certificate turns out to be fake or not for that poster, and the newbie buyer was bummed by this, would the seller refund? If no refund, then maybe sellers should state this... that the seller does not back the validity of the certificate.

In the case of this auction, looks like Bruce did get the certification done himself.

Also the grading of 5.5 for this poster only applies at the time the poster was assessed.

Usually, enough money shows up to cover the amount of items offered, but I would agree that there is every chance of some great deals, and if so, you sure want to be there to get one or more of them!

Title: Our 12th Annual Halloween Auctions begin closing Sunday & GREAT BONUSES!
Post by: Bruce on October 28, 2011, 07:42:03 PM
Our 12th Annual Halloween Auctions begin closing Sunday & we're giving great bonuses

I want to let you know about our current mini/major auction (our 12th Annual Halloween Auction, which began with Part I on Sunday October 23rd, and continued with Part II on Tuesday October 25th, and the final portion, Part III started on Thursday October 27th).
 The first part ends Sunday AFTERNOON, October 30th, the second part ends Tuesday NIGHT November 1st and wraps up Thursday NIGHT November 3rd. If you are interested in the items in Part I, you need to check them out right away, because they start closing in just two days. We are giving our very best bonuses ever in these auctions, so THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO GIVE US A TRY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BUYING FROM US FOR A WHILE, OR IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECEIVED OUR BONUS ITEMS (because we are rapidly running out of them!).

Our 12th Annual Halloween Auction has an incredible selection of posters (1,946 items in all!), covering all years and sizes and is being run in three parts:
Part I (Sunday October 23rd to 30th): 568 unfolded and formerly folded posters that fit in our standard size tubes
Part II (Tuesday October 25th to November 1st): 735 U.S. folded one-sheets and non-U.S. folded posters & lobbies
Part III (Thursday October 27th to November 3rd): 643 items that ship in oversized flat packages or tubes OR that are backed OR that are stills and lobby cards!
Title: Re: Our 12th Annual Halloween Auctions begin closing Sunday & GREAT BONUSES!
Post by: Bruce on October 29, 2011, 08:34:52 AM
Why are there three parts? Some auctions persist in having a huge number of VERY expensive items auctioned in a very short time, and that made sense in the days of live auctions and where people had to travel to the auctions. But now that the vast majority of the bidding takes place online, there is no reason to force people to make so many decisions in such a short time. By dividing our items into three parts (over an 5 day closing period) we let our buyers have far more time to decide and what they will bid on. We first did multiple parts in our mini/major auctions several auctions ago, and we received LOTS of positive responses from happy bidders who greatly appreciated the added time!

How were the items divided? We divided them mostly according to how they need to be shipped, which makes it far easier for our packers to quickly and safely package all the many expensive orders (which is in everyone's interest).
  ALL of the items in Part I are unfolded (or formerly folded) and not backed and fit in our standard sized tubes.
 ALL of the items in Part II ship in our standard sized flat packages
 SOME of the items in Part III ship rolled in our either oversized flat packages or in oversized tubes, some are linenbacked and need to be sent by themselves in tubes (because we never choose to combine linen and non-linen posters), some of the items are lobby cards and ship in our standard sized flat packages, and some of the items are stills and ship in our small sized flat packages

  You can also view all of the items at one time at this link: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/all.html . If you look at all of the items sorted by highest to lowest, you quickly see all the many rare and wonderful items in the auctions, but if you look at all of the items sorted by lowest to highest, you will quickly be struck by the HUNDREDS of items that are currently at a tiny fraction of their ordinary retail price, so there is certainly the potential for incredible bargains (which are made even better when you consider the bonus T-SHIRT, and the added bonuses to all club members who purchase 5 to 12 items from the three parts combined! Note that we have NO 20% or 25% buyers premiums that every other major auction has!

Here are the bonuses we are giving club members who purchase 5 to 12 items from the three parts combined:

 Buy 5 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get a set of 7 of our 43 full-color movie poster books (Cartoon Movie Posters (long sold out!), Texas at the Movies, Warner Bros Movie Posters at Auction, John Wayne Movie Posters, Hollywood & Early Cinema, More Cowboy Movie Posters, and 60 Great Cowboy Movie Posters) - total retail of the 7 books is  $144.99!
 Buy 6 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack
 Buy 7 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, plus a set 6 full-color movie poster books (Attack of the "B" Movie Posters, Drive-In Movie Posters, Who Goes There?, Sports Movie Posters (long sold out!), Rock, Pop, & Classic Cinema Posters (long sold out!), and Comedy Movie Posters (long sold out!) - - total retail of the 6 books is $130!
 Buy 8 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, the set of 6 full-color movie poster books, plus Illustration Magazine #6 (special issue on on master illustrator Bob Peak)
 Buy 9 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, the set of 6 full-color movie poster books, Illustration Magazine #6, plus Hollywood Posters I to VI (our six great Christie's auction catalogs from 1990 to 1994, long out of print and total retail is $120!)
 Buy 10 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, the set of 6 full-color movie poster books, Illustration Magazine #6, Hollywood Posters I to VI, plus Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Movie Posters (one of our best selling titles, which has been completely unavailable for years, but we discovered just enough copies of it for this special promotion)
 Buy 11 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get
 the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, the set of 6 full-color movie poster books, Illustration Magazine #6, Hollywood Posters I to VI, Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Movie Posters, plus Crime Scenes (an oversized book on film noir!)
 Buy 12 items TOTAL from any of the three parts and get the set of 7 full-color movie poster books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, the set of 6 full-color movie poster books, Illustration Magazine #6, Hollywood Posters I to VI, Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy Movie Posters, Crime Scenes, plus The Movie Poster Book (the very first movie poster book from 1979, and out of print for decades!)

  So if you get 12 or more items you get around $600 retail in great bonuses. Most amazing of all, we give the club member who gets the most total items from all three parts combined ALL of the above bonuses, plus an additional $500 of posters from the fixed price items section of our site (our choice, not yours), plus hundreds of dollars of limited edition coffee table hardcovers.

Not a member of our club? You can join the other 6,500+ members already in the club by going here: https://www.emovieposter.com/club/settings.php (and it is fine with us if you solely join to get the above bonuses and then quit after that). CERTAINLY, THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO GIVE US A TRY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BUYING FOR A WHILE, GIVEN ALL THE GREAT BONUSES!

Please remember that in our auctions, a LOT of the bidders like to wait near the end of the auctions to place their bids! So don't get a false sense of security just because you have had the high bid for almost all of the seven days an item has been on for. But also remember that our auctions have "time extended bidding", which means that five minutes must go by without a bid before an auction closes, so you can NEVER have an item snatched away from you in the final seconds (but you have to be watching the item as it closes, to make certain that no one entered a higher bid than yours in the closing minutes).

Good luck on whatever you may bid on in our current Halloween auctions ending on October 30th and November 1st & 3rd. And remember to carefully look over ALL the items in the three parts (and, if nothing else, try to find any one item to buy so you can get our great T-SHIRT which you can't get any other way).

What makes you think he doesn't reguarly check APF?

I first met him 22 years ago. A very fine fellow, and a real credit to the hobby in many ways.

He's one of the few dealers I like.  Actually, probably the only one :)  Not easy to befriend, a little harsh to many, but a nice fellow overall.  Certainly a big poster connaisseur.  His books are top notch too.  The ones on Bardot and Grace Kelly are great.  I talk to him on a regular basis, every couple of months or so, I visited him twice this year already and I know he doesn't go to forums.  Not his thing.  But he likes you too, Bruce.

Title: The Halloween auction is all over, and they took in $226,000

The Halloween auction is all over, and they took in $226,000, and yet there were hundreds of great buys! Until Sunday afternoon, you can see all the results in one convenient gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/results.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/results.html)

I don't have stats at hand, but it is more than the last few. I was expecting around $200,000, so it surpassed my expectations, and in today's environment, that's great.

Of course any good private dealer would have been able to sell the items for twice as much!

Post by: Bruce on November 04, 2011, 06:50:56 AM
You are correct, Charlie. And one has to factor in the cost of working for ten years, and that eats up a lot of the supposed added profit.

There were LOTS and LOTS of good deals, too.

Sorting the items low to high shows that 86 items sold for $5 or under (and every one of those buyers got a free t-shirt), and 518 items sold for $14 and under, so it was super easy to buy the 12 items needed for club members to get the $600 in book bonuses!

And of course, our leading competitor has NEVER sold even one item for $14 or less, thanks to their $14 minimum buyers premiums.

So it was a good day for buyers and consignors.

Now on to our December mini major sale, which has a bunch of excellent items in it!

But first, we have 999 single lobby cards and 840 single stills, and while I know there are few here who collect those, both those auctions are really packed with fine items.

You live and breathe this hobby and you have an excellent support staff.
Combine that with the customer confidence you have developed over the years and it's a no-brainer... Emovieposter.com sets the standard.  clap

The people at eMoviePoster DO make a huge difference. But we did luck out this time with some incredible consignments that had been off the market for decades.

When you auction expensive items that you have just auctioned (sometimes over and over again) how can you expect to get good results? That is why we constantly seek out items that have not come to auction in recent years, but that is getting harder and harder to do.

Title: Our Halloween auction took in $224,869 & you can still view all the items!
Post by: Bruce on November 05, 2011, 04:40:08 PM
Did you know... that our Halloween auction took in $224,869 and that you can still view all of the items in one gallery?

     Our 12th Annual Halloween auctions took in $224,869 which far exceeded our expectations. You can still view all of the items in one gallery (until Sunday at 5 PM CST at this link http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/results.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/results.html)), and after that, you can always view the results at https://www.emovieposter.com/sales/postersales.php by clicking on each set of auctions by date

But this is ONE major auction that wasn't "For Millionaires Only"! In lots of "high profile" auctions, they focus solely on the high dollar items they sold, and they don't mention in any way the hundreds of items that failed to meet their lofty "reserve prices" (often set at high retail or above). In many of those auctions you either pay high retail or you don't buy (and in many cases, the high bidder is actually the only real person who was bidding).

     But all of these auctions had NO reserves at all, and while every single items sold, many sold for below bargain basement prices! The auctions included 85 items that sold for just FIVE DOLLARS (or under), and a staggering 518 items that sold for FOURTEEN DOLLARS and under (remember that our leading competitor has NEVER auctioned even one item for under $15, thanks to their $14 minimum buyers premiums).

     There were a total of 902 items that sold for under TWENTY DOLLARS (nearly half of the total items!) and EVERY one of the more than 500 different buyers receive a great full-color t-shirt (that costs us $9 to $11 at wholesale), even those who just purchased one inexpensive item.

     And over 130 of those 500 buyers purchased five or more items (and were in this club) and they also receive the many special added bonuses we offered (in all we gave away well over 2,000 bonus items) and the cost to us of all these promotions was well in excess of $10,000, which means we had lots and lots of happy buyers!

     And we also had lots of happy consignors, because many of the items sold for excellent prices (no doubt helped both by the many bonus offers, and the lack of outrageous buyers premiums!).

  Well, I guess Bruce's aversion to previews is offically over.   ;D

  Bruce, I never understood why anticipation/drooling over key items was a bad thing.  Those 34 posters will in no way harm your other auctions. Your Wonderful Life poster does not begin to diminish your weeky sale price of Frogs.

The first 3 parts of our December Mini/Major Auction have begun & Part I ends this Sunday, December 4th

This is Bruce Hershenson. I want to let you know about our December 2011 Mini/Major Auction, which is running right now, in four parts from November 27th to December 11th.

Part I ends this Sunday AFTERNOON, December 4th (NOT starting at 7 PM CST like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions, but STARTING AT 3 PM CST), Part II ends Tuesday NIGHT December 6th, Part III ends Thursday NIGHT December 8th, and Part IV wraps up Sunday AFTERNOON, December 11th.

If you are interested in the linenbacked items in Part I, you need to check them out right away, because they start closing in just one day. We are giving our very best bonuses ever in these auctions, so THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME TO GIVE US A TRY, ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NOT BEEN BUYING FROM US FOR A WHILE, OR IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECEIVED OUR BONUS ITEMS (because we are rapidly running out of them, and THIS mini/major auction will be the last one with such generous bonuses, because we just won't have them to give after this).

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20111125_december_logo.jpg)

Our December 2011 Mini/Major Auction has an incredible selection of posters and lobby cards (1,693 items in all!), covering all years, genres, and sizes and is being run in four parts:

Part I (ends Sunday December 4th): 292 linenbacked items which ship in tubes
Part II (Tuesday November 29th to December 6th): 444 rolled and folded unbacked posters of all types which ship in either our standard sized flat packages or in our standard tubes
Part III (Thursday December 1st to 8th): 180 oversized posters, paperbacked posters, and more which either ship rolled in oversized tubes or oversized flat packages (some are linenbacked and small and can be sent in either flat packages, which we would prefer, or rolled in tubes)
Part IV (Sunday December 4th to 11th): 777 lobby cards which ship in our standard sized flat packages

An incredible "GRAND PRIZE" for the person who purchases the most items from all four parts combined. That person gets
ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS (at our current retail) of VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS from the fixed price items section of our site (OUR choice only, so no requests)!

We have made similar offers to the above in our past few mini/major auctions, but only in our last three mini/major auctions did we add in $500 of posters, and that definitely increased the number of people who wanted to win the grand prize (and rightly so!). BUT THIS TIME WE ARE GIVING ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS (at our current retail) of VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS, SO THIS IS OUR VERY BEST OFFER EVER!

If a person were to focus on the least expensive items in each of the four parts, they might well be able to win 50 or more for just $5 to $10 per poster, and they would surely get the bonus T-SHIRT, all the items for winning 12 or more items, and they would have an excellent chance of winning the Grand Prize as well. In the past, some of our most dedicated buyers have clearly made an extra effort to win this Grand Prize, and now that ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS of VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS has been added to it, it will be very interesting to see who wins it!

Given that you get the ultra-cool Vertigo t-shirt (pictured below) free with any purchase, shouldn't you at least find one of these cheap items to buy, because you will get both the poster and the t-shirt for that one low price?

Title: On Sunday 12/11 we once again set our all-time record for yearly sales!
Post by: Bruce on December 12, 2011, 06:30:40 AM
Did you know... that on Sunday 12/11 we once again set our all-time record for sales in a single year?
     It's true! On Sunday 12/11 we set our all-time record for sales in a single year (it is now $3,415,035.00), and we have eight auctions left to go, and every one of those will increase our record total by that much more. We had thought that it was going to be very close as to whether or not we would break our yearly sales record, but the huge successes of our Halloween auction ($225,000+ in sales) and our current December 2011 Mini/Major Auction ($310,000+ in sales) have let us SHATTER our old record (of $3,362,657.00, set last year)!
     This marks our fourth consecutive THREE million dollar year (setting a new record each year), our ninth consecutive TWO million dollar year, and our twenty second consecutive ONE million dollar year! We also have sold to over 34,000 people (over 10,000 of whom have registered on our site), and we currently have 7,210 active registered bidders who, as of this writing, have purchased the 97,294 items we auctioned this year (so far!).
     We will sell our 100,000 item of the year on Thursday, December 15th (and if you include all the items that are in our "bulk lots" individually, then we will have auctioned over 150,000 items this year alone, and if you count all of the items in the sets of stills and lobby cards individually, then we will have auctioned well over 200,000 items in all)! Not only has no other auction we are aware of auctioned 100,000 items in a single year, we don't know of many auctions anywhere that have ever auctioned that many items during their entire existence!

862 different people have consigned to us. When we get our 1,000th consignor, we will have a random draw of all 1,000 of them, and give that lucky one $1,000 of retail from our fixed price movie posters (our choice). If YOU have never consigned to us, why not send us off your first package today (after reading our terms at http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign&myfrom=menu (http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign&myfrom=menu) so your name will be included in that drawing (and you'll also quickly see why so many members of the hobby, both dealers and collectors consign to us, and the vast differences between consigning to us and consigning to anyone else)?

As I was looking through them (because sometimes it more fun than cheating with your want list) I just kept thinking "please no must have Eastwoods", please no must have Eastwoods"..

Whew, but I found a non-Eastwood that I might just have to bid on.. Damnit!

Not that bidding/buying is a bad thing but its only the 3rd.  I should just take the first two weeks off of every month and then spend my budget in the last two weeks instead of the other way around...

When we notify our buyers that we have received their payment and will send their order right out, we add, "If, after you receive your purchase, you are happy with what you got and the service you received, that is great. But please know that if you are not 100% happy (for any reason), please contact us with what is making you unhappy, and we'll do whatever it takes to make you happy (and we have 21 solid years of happy transactions to back up what we say!)."

We just received this reply:
     "I do not have one single thing to complain about at all. In fact I dont think I could be happier with the service you provide! You have great posters at great prices packaged in the best possible way. I have yet to receive anything packed with more care from any other vendor. You make transactions really easy, This coupled with the pay & hold system to save on postal costs is an all round stellar service. I just wish I could afford a couple more of the more expensive posters when they come up, I never quite seem to have any money at the right time! But all in all, perfect :). Cheers one and all at eMoviePoster."

Title: Did you know that well over half of what sold in 2011 went for $14 or under?
Post by: Bruce on January 28, 2012, 01:18:07 PM
Did you know... that well over half of what sold in 2011 went for $14 or under?
   You all know our auctions all start at $1 with no reserve (so do the auctions of our leading competitor, but THEIRS have an outrageous $14 minimum buyers premium, so they never sell an item for under $15!).

But is our "$1 no reserve" starting price just a "come-on"? Not in the slightest! Over half of the items we auctioned in both 2010 and 2011 actually auctioned for $14 or less, and our competitor has never auctioned even ONE item for $14 or less!

And we have a pretty even spread across the board of what auctions for $1 through what auctions for $14. Below are the cold hard facts of how many items we auctioned for each price in each year:

2011 (total items sold 104,000+)
8,291 items sold for exactly $1
11,786 items sold for $2 or less
18,339 items sold for $3 or less
24,058 items sold for $4 or less
28,082 items sold for $5 or less
33,199 items sold for $6 or less
37,267 items sold for $7 or less
40,730 items sold for $8 or less
43,950 items sold for $9 or less
46,409 items sold for $10 or less
47,396 items sold for $11 or less
51,065 items sold for $12 or less
54,450 items sold for $13 or less
57,296 items sold for $14 or less

2010 (total items sold 94,000+)
6,908 items sold for exactly $1
10,248 items sold for $2 or less
15,764 items sold for $3 or less
20,167 items sold for $4 or less
23,623 items sold for $5 or less
27,703 items sold for $6 or less
31,183 items sold for $7 or less
33,783 items sold for $8 or less
36,596 items sold for $9 or less
38,722 items sold for $10 or less
39,585 items sold for $11 or less
43,268 items sold for $12 or less
45,985 items sold for $13 or less
48,923 items sold for $14 or less

Of course, in addition to auctioning over 50,000 items for $14 or less, we also auctioned lots of items for much higher prices! OUR TOTAL SALES FOR 2011 WAS $3,557,795.88! So, whether you are looking to get great deals, or looking to get great individual items, the place to go to is eMoviePoster.com (where you'll never find any buyers premiums, deceptive images, over-grading, or nosebleed shipping, but you WILL find honest descriptions and the best customer service there is!).
Title: WHOAAA! 50% of our 999 folded one-sheets are at $3 or under with 13 hours to go!
Post by: Bruce on February 07, 2012, 06:49:52 AM
I JUST LOOKED OVER THE 999 FOLDED ONE-SHEETS CLOSING TONIGHT, AND I SAW LOTS AND LOTS OF REALLY WILDLY UNDER-PRICED ITEMS (there are perhaps 10% that are fairly priced, but the other 90% are filled with super-low prices!). THIS IS A TIME FOR ABSOLUTE STEALS!

Are you tired of auctions for millionaires only where the items have a "round up the usual suspects" feel to them, and there is a "pay retail or you can't buy" philosophy behind the auctions, and the same items return to the auction block over and over and over? Well, we have the antidote for you! Three times EVERY week we auction hundreds of items that sell for low, low prices (we actually sell lots and lots of items for $1 and $2, and around half of all that we auction goes for $14 and under, and our leading "competitor" NEVER auctions a single item for less than FIFTEEN DOLLARS, due to their outrageous $14 minimum buyers premium). But Tuesday night's 999 folded one-sheets covering all years and genres (including early James Bonds), closing tonight, on TUESDAY February 7th, represent REALLY incredible values, and yet many of these are currently languishing at low, low, prices!

With just 13 hours to go, the 999 folded one-sheets include a preposterous 266 that are still languishing at just $1 each or have no bid, a downright silly 392 that are still languishing at just $2 each or under, and a Mt Everest-like 490 that are $3 each and under! THAT'S RIGHT, JUST UNDER 50% OF THE ITEMS ARE $3 EACH OR UNDER (AND AROUND 40% ARE JUST $2 EACH OR UNDER AND OVER 25% ARE JUST $1 EACH OR HAVE NO BID), and there are LOTS of titles that I guarantee you many dealers would ask $10, $20 or much more for. This is the closest thing to "free money" I can imagine (especially since those in our club can purchase any 20 and get 6 or our best books as a bonus)!

HELLO! This is 2011 and I doubt you could have purchased many of these items for $3 (or far under) 20 years ago, and remember that this price is one third (or much less) of the minimum buying price at those "other" auctions (thanks to their ludicrous $14 buyers premiums)!  And you can get as many of these items as you want sent in one package anywhere in the U.S. for just $11 shipping for all (or actual cost anywhere else), EVEN IF you win 100 or more! And if you are in our e-mail club (over 7,000 members), you get great added bonuses if you purchase 10 or 15 or 20 items (no matter how inexpensive)!

In these days of high starting bids or fourteen dollar minimum buyers premiums, it is a sight for sore eyes to see 999 folded one-sheets at such low, low prices with just 13 hours to go!

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 7,000+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at http://www.emovieposter.com/mail/clubsignup.php!), you get great bonuses if you purchase just 10 or 15 or 20 of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on the bonuses (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you).

Don't forget to check out our 999 folded one-sheets covering all years and genres (including early James Bonds) sometime BEFORE they end TONIGHT Tuesday, February 7th, (but you only have 13 hours left to do so, because they start ending at 7 PM CST TONIGHT, so hustle over there right now!) by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html

And now you can browse the items in ALL of galleries at one time in our All Auctions gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/all.html!
And you can always access our galleries by using the link from our homepage, http://www.emovieposter.com.

I was just testing you to see if you were reading it closely, and you pass!

I understand that some posters will sell for low prices in true no reserve auctions. But THIS poster, at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=2463766 (http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=2463766) which has The Three Stooges, horror AND 3-D all in one poster, is just $197 with a short time to go, and THAT I can't understand, because this poster usually goes for between $1,000 and $2,000!

And there are hundred more closing very soon that are almost as hard to understand! Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html. but hurry, because they begin closing very soon.

It's misleading simply because you are highlighting low end poster sales to speak for year 'totals' to garner more traffic to eMovie, plain and simple.

Just seems ironic that Thierry jumps to approve here in the same day he points out his impression that posters as a whole, are increasing in value as he has been outbid more times lately.

Also, Bruce, when you can get $140 for an Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade OS that can be had for $12 on ebay (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/6283054.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/6283054.html), I would think that proclaiming the 'value' aspect in a sales pitch seems a stretch in most cases, whereas highlighting your excellent customer service, packaging, and shipping would be aces.
Title: Re: Did you know that well over half of what sold in 2011 went for $14 or under?
Post by: Bruce on February 08, 2012, 08:53:17 AM
But the point is that many posters DO sell for under the cost of repros, even though, as you point out, many others DO sell for well over the typical eBay price, and you know that a large reason for that is the "fear factor" (the fear of getting a repro, the fear of getting nothing at all, the fear of getting a crushed poster, the fear of getting a poster that doesn't match the image, etc).

I DO also create ads that highlight all those other aspects you mention, but in such a small hobby it doesn't make sense to simply run the same ads over and over again (as do the large companies which are constantly out there looking for new buyers and consignors to replace the ones they lost once they burned them).

If you have an iron resolve, you can solely use eMoviePoster.com to buy bargains, only bidding a below market bid, and never raising that due to auction fever. Yes, you will lose a high majority of the items you bid on, but you WILL get some great deals (and everything you win in twp weeks, or around 5,000 items can be sent for one shipping, if they fit in one package, if you are in the U.S., or double that if you are outside, so that is a great savings too).

But I don't think hardly anyone has that kind of iron resolve, even Thierry!

Title: I am very proud of eMoviePoster.com and the people who have helped me build it!
Post by: Bruce on February 27, 2012, 08:04:23 AM
I am very proud of eMoviePoster.com and of Phil Wages and the many people who have helped me build it!

    I was recently watching a re-run of the magnificent Mad Men AMC TV show and Donald Draper superbly articulated what is so very wrong with most American business today. He said "Who is in charge here? A bunch of accountants trying to turn $1 into $1.10? I want to BUILD something!"

I started eMoviePoster.com from nothing, and it doesn't make lots of money (because I give everybody, buyers, consignors, and employees a more than fair deal) but it DOES provide something that there never was before: a way for poster collectors everywhere to dispose of their unwanted items and get a decent price for them, and for collectors to participate in true auctions and get lots of good deals, and for 25 people in tiny West Plains, MO to make a good living. I BUILT something!

Now of course, I didn't "build" it by myself! I had a vision of what I wanted it to be, and that formed its business plan. Phil Wages was the first to help me turn that plan into a reality, and soon many others joined in as well (surely a high percentage of West Plains' best and brightest!), and it is thanks to all those people that eMoviePoster.com is what it is today.

And we don't rest on our laurels, or worse yet do as so many other companies do and try to cut corners to increase profits. We are constantly improving eMoviePoster.com in dozens of ways, in ways that are visible on our website and our auctions, and in many other ways that only show when our buyers and consignors see how smoothly our business runs, in spite of having 2,000 auctions every week!

Is not one of our country's greatest problems today that so many businesses have stopped "trying to build something", and instead are trying to squeeze extra pennies out of their bottom line (by moving jobs and factories overseas, by cheapening the quality of what they sell, by squeezing their employees into working harder for no more money, etc, etc)?

Our December 2011 Mini/Major Auction had excellent results ($310,000+ in sales), as did our 12th Annual Halloween Auctions in November, and we shattered our single year sales record ($3,501,427 for the year). Given that our major auctions are continuing to get stronger and stronger results, consigning to us is surely the best way to auction quality movie paper (especially because eBay continues its painful implosion, and other non-eBay auctions are having lackluster results, at best, in spite of deceptive advertising that just shows the few top results).

And if you have been following our weekly auctions, then you know that we have been getting very strong results on "better" items, week in and week out! Right now there are lots and lots of buyers looking to buy quality items in honest auctions, and all they are seeing are a limited amount of fixed price items at sky high prices, so they are in a bidding frenzy when we have better items, and almost without fail they are getting excellent results!

Three weeks is not much time at all, and it has a way of creeping up on you! NOW is the time to consign to our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction, because you don't want to miss this opportunity to consign to our first mini/major auction of the year. If you have something you would like considered for inclusion in this special auction, e-mail Phillip immediately at phillip@emovieposter.com
Title: We've reached two more milestones in terms of number of consignors and bidders!
Post by: Bruce on March 01, 2012, 07:15:24 AM
We just had our NINE HUNDREDTH consignor of vintage movie paper. But we can't take all the credit for this amazing accomplishment. We have to thank eBay for raising fees over and over and adding more and more wacky regulations that make every seller miserable and put them at the mercy of the many wacky eBay buyers. But once those sellers give us a try and see all we have to offer over eBay, many become hooked on consigning to us, and many only stop when they have nothing left that they want to sell.

We also recently signed up our 7,500th active registered user (those who have bought from us in the past year). We could use the number of people who have ever bought from us (34,000) but we know that what really matters is the number of people who are currently buying from you, and that number just keeps on growing and growing, as more and more buyers learn of how much better our service is than our competitors.
Title: URGENT Our auction galleries currently are not updating
Post by: Bruce on March 15, 2012, 06:23:58 AM
I just woke up and saw that at some point around five hours ago, our auction galleries stopped updating with the latest prices from the actual auctions.

What happened?  Our auction host made a tiny technical change in the auctions in the middle of the night (they do it then so as to not affect auctions as they end), and that blocked our gallery from importing the latest prices.

I will get my tech guys to fix this, but it won't happen for around 4 hours from now (around 9 AM CST), when they first get to work!

I very much apologize for this, and it IS very frustrating, but at least it will be fixed long before the auctions end.

I will post here when they are fixed.

Let's see who can come closest to guessing the total of the final selling prices of the 8 Harry Potter It All Ends one-sheets!

Whoever gets closest among those who post BEFORE the first auction starts to close will get a set of 8 of my books sent to them free (in the U.S.).

Whaddya think? Will all 8 combined be worth as much as ONE Bueller?

Title: When you buy at auction do you believe the rule of 'buyer beware' applies?
Post by: Bruce on April 03, 2012, 10:04:14 PM
I have seen discussion on forums about sellers who list items in ways like "Original vintage movie poster from The Wizard of Oz, 1939" and buried in the small print is a tiny mention that the poster is from a 1955 (or whenever) re-release, and people ask if this is ethical and accepted, or is it the buyer's fault if they miss the "fine print".

Obviously, some bidders buy into the entire "buyer beware" philosophy behind this (especially on eBay) because I just received this email from a buyer who bought a pressbook we listed that we said was original and after he got it he discovered it was a re-release.

Here's what he wrote:

"I guess it is a lot my fault for not being more observant, but the item I got,"THIRTY SECONDS OVER TOKYO" pressbook, was listed as being from 1944, But it clearly was not listed correctly, because after receiving said item I discovered thatit says "Copyright 1955". I could not really read this even on your super-sized image during the auction because the printing is so small."

So he was just willing to take his loss, and accept it as HIS fault!

So I replied as follows:

"It is not "your fault" in the slightest! There ARE some sellers who list items this way, but we are absolutely not one of them. This was just a mistake on our describer's part (because we always note reissues clearly in the title of the auction and in several other ways).

Because this was missed, you bid thinking it was original. You paid $17. Do you still want it at all, knowing it is from 1955?

If you do, I can offer you two options:

1) You can keep the item at a reduced price (tell us what you think is fair, and if we agree you are being fair [and we likely will], we will refund you the difference and you can keep the item).

or, if you don't want it at all,

2) You can return the item for a full refund in the same way you paid.

Please know that I very much apologize. Of course, I wish we never made even a single mistake, but that is unrealistic when we are auctioning 2,000 to 2,500 items every WEEK. But what I can be sure to make happen is that every time we do make a mistake, we make it right, and make sure WE take an loss that occurs and not the buyer!

Thanks,
Bruce"

The whole "buyer beware" philosophy is more for the buyer to be careful with who they do business with.
It shouldn't be a seller's method of conducting business. To do so is a shady tactic that will not keep them in business for long.

A+ on the way you handled it.

Thanks enki. I have noticed over and over that such sellers often have trouble making sales, because buyers are distrustful of everything they do. So while they may make extra money on the one sale where they trick someone, they lose big time overall in reduced sales. Penny wise and pound foolish!

Title: a tiny preview gallery of the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction
Post by: Bruce on April 20, 2012, 06:55:53 PM
Here is a link for a tiny preview gallery of the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction that runs from 4/22 to 5/6 (we are working so hard that we just grabbed some images so you could get some idea of a few of the items):
http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012SpringPreview/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012SpringPreview/)

Our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction has an incredible selection of posters and lobby cards (1300+ items in all!), covering all years, genres, and sizes and is being run in four parts (see below for how the items are divided):

Part I (Sunday April 22nd to April 29th): 529 linenbacked posters (one-sheets, quads, and all smaller sizes)
Part II (Tuesday April 24th to May 1st): around 300 rolled (or formerly folded) unbacked posters of all types that fit in standard tubes
Part III (Thursday April 26th to May 3rd): around 350 folded one-sheets, lobby cards, and other items that fit in standard flat packages
Part IV (Sunday April 29th to May 6th): around 150 backed & unbacked oversized posters of all types

Note that Parts I and IV start closing at 3 PM CST, which will allow our many European bidders to bid at the end without setting alarms for the middle of the night!
Title: An important change to the bonuses we give in our Mini/Major auction
Post by: Bruce on April 21, 2012, 11:27:14 AM
Our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction starts on Sunday April 22nd (Part I) and continues with Parts II to IV on the 24th, 26th, and 29th! You are not going to believe how many wonderful posters and lobby cards are contained in these auctions (both backed and unbacked).

In our past mini/major auctions, we have given a bonus full-color t-shirt to every buyer. BUT BEGINNING WITH THIS AUCTION WE WILL NO LONGER BE GIVING THE T-SHIRTS. Why? Because they not only made shipping really complicated (they are very hard to combine with orders of rolled posters, and we were having to hold them and send them later on in flat packages, which added tons of work for our shipping people, but they also upped the postage costs, and with all the recent increases in postal fees, this is the last thing we need).

We also have given lots and lots of our books as bonuses to buyers in our regular Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday auctions, and in our mini/major auctions we have given hard-to-believe bonuses of some of our best books (and ones from other publishers) to those who purchased 5 to 12 items from all the parts combined. We have told you for a long time that we are running very low on books, and after THIS mini/major auction, we will likely only give bonus books on really rare occasions, because our supply will be extremely low.

But for THIS mini/major auction, we are going to make our best bonus book offers ever, so that everyone who buys FOUR items from all the parts combined will get several books, and those who buy a fair number of items will get a massive collection of all the remaining books we have (many hundreds of dollars at original retail)! I HAVE GATHERED TOGETHER ALL OF BOOKS I HAVE LEFT TO GIVE AWAY FREE AND I AM HOPING TO MAKE OFFERS SO WONDERFUL THAT I CAN GIVE THEM ALL AWAY IN THIS MINI-MAJOR AUCTION (and then have next-to-no book giveaways in the future).

While it certainly has been lots of fun giving all the bonus t-shirts and books, after the current mini/major auction ends, we are going to focus on other sorts of bonuses for our buyers that will continue to make us the very best auction, but without the complications and added shipping costs that these bonuses have caused.

So please be sure to look over all the items in our wonderful items in the four parts of our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction when they are added on the 22nd, 24th, 26th and 29th! Not only do I think every collector will find lots they would like to add to their collections, but the additional bonus items should make bidding even more irresistible!

But the shipping and invoicing departments had a champagne party when they heard the news. The t-shirts made them dread every mini-major auction.

Buy 5 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, plus the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results six volume Megapack - total retail of these seven items alone is $89.99!

Buy 6 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, plus our three best ever supersized auction catalogs, Hollywood & Early Cinema, 100 Years of the Cinema, and Rock, Pop & Classic Cinema Posters - total retail of these three items alone is $90.00!

Buy 7 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, our three best ever supersized auction catalogs, plus a set of 8 of our 43 full-color movie poster books (Best Pictures' Movie Posters, Drive-In Movie Posters, Not Nominated Movie Posters, Attack of the 'B' Movie Posters, Texas at the Movies, Warner Bros Movie Posters at Auction, John Wayne Movie Posters, and More Cowboy Movie Posters) - total retail of the 8 books alone is $164.99!

Buy 8 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, our three best ever supersized auction catalogs, the set of 8 full-color books, plus Hollywood Posters I to VI (our six great Christie's auction catalogs from 1990 to 1994, and long out of print)  - total retail of these 6 books alone is $120!

Buy 9 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, our three best ever supersized auction catalogs, the set of 8 full-color books, the set of Hollywood Posters I to VI, plus  a set of 15 back issues of Movie Collectors World (the "Bible" of the movie poster hobby for over 30 years) - total retail of the 15 issues alone is $45

Buy 10 items TOTAL from any of the four parts and get the above three 60 Great books, the Learn About Movie Posters book and our Movie Poster Sales Results Megapack, our three best ever supersized auction catalogs, the set of 8 full-color books, the set of Hollywood Posters I to VI, the 15 back issues of Movie Collectors World, plus 12 of the massive semi-annual Bruce Hershenson Sales Catalogs (put out between 1993 and 2000, each containing around 2,000 excellent movie posters and lobby card sets for sale, with EVERY single item pictured! So you get around twenty five THOUSAND pictures of movie posters in all (most are very small) and a fair number are so rare they have never been pictured before or since! You'll laugh (or maybe cry) at some of the prices you could have bought these items at way back when (and every item had a fixed price). This is an invaluable resource to poster images (we just uncovered enough of these in our warehouse to give them away as this special bonus)! - total retail of these 12 sales catalogs alone is priceless

So if you get just 10 or more items from any of the four parts combined you get over $550 retail in great bonuses, and if you are the club member who gets the most total items in all four parts, then you also get the below "Grand Prize"!

ONE FINAL AMAZING BONUS OFFER: An incredible "GRAND PRIZE" for the person who purchases the most items from all four parts combined. That person gets:
 ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS (at our current retail) of VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS from the fixed price items section of our site (OUR choice only, so no requests)!

We have made similar offers to the above in our past few mini/major auctions, but only in our last mini/major auctions did we add in $1,000 of posters, and that definitely increased the number of people who wanted to win the grand prize (and rightly so!). If a person were to focus on the least expensive items in each of the four parts, they might well be able to win 50 or more for just $5 to $10 per poster, and they would surely get all the items for winning 10 or more items, and they would have an excellent chance of winning the Grand Prize as well. In the past, some of our most dedicated buyers have clearly made an extra effort to win our Grand Prize (which until the last mini/major was just out-of-print books, and now that ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS of VINTAGE MOVIE POSTERS has been added to it, it will be very interesting to see who wins it (in 2011's Halloween auctions, it was a club member who purchased just 40 items who won the Grand Prize, so certainly it is within reach for every club member)!

Please know that I will not give any of these offers to people who "come close" and barely miss buying the required amount of items, AND I CAN'T "SUBSTITUTE" ONE OFFER FOR ANOTHER, SO PLEASE DO NOT ASK ME TO DO SO! It is up to you to make sure that your computer does not malfunction, that you do not mis-count the number of items that you have won, that your dog does not eat your homework, etc! I feel certain that the above offers are EXTREMELY generous, and you MUST fulfill the requirements for each one exactly or you won't get the prize(s).

BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU WHO PARTICIPATE IN THE ABOVE SPECIAL OFFERS! You can sift through the least expensive items from any of the four parts and pick out the ones you want, and get LOTS of great bonuses at NO added cost (and NO added shipping cost in the U.S., which is even more insane!), plus items you wanted to buy! HOW TOTALLY INSANE IS THAT?

IMPORTANT! We have finally given away most of the free bonus books we had, and this is ABSOLUTELY the very last mini/major auction where we can give this quantity of bonuses. If you find any ten items to purchase from the four parts combined, you will have a MASSIVE box of great items sent to you as well!

Go right now and start looking at the items in Part One at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html (and remember, this is just Part One, and there are three more parts not yet online!)

So linen backing adds value... I've read that it ruins the value to collectors.

To newbies it may well be added value, but to those more experienced it is to be avoided (is worth same or less on linen) as it can hide condition issues (tears, missing pieces, painting) and also even the poster may need to be unbacked then backed again (costly) due to issues with the linen (thin, crumpled, folded, trimmed to close to poster). When sellers often dont have detailed photos and condition report and a returns policy, it is not worth the risks to some.

Generally, linen-backing dramatically approves the appearance of many posters (and helps preserve them) but rarely adds value to them.  For some posters, especially pre-1960 posters, linen-backing is definitely acceptable and even preferable.  Certainly my Blonde Sinner greatly benefited from linen-backing:

Who wouldn't approve of that appearance?  ;)


So the question I have is Which of these two would you pay more for? Newb I would like to hear your thoughts too.

To me the advantage to linenbacking is that you can take a good to very good poster and make it sing... Without it it is just a good to very good poster... 


(is worth same or less on linen)

I would like to see a financial analysis on this statement....  Make sure to consider unbacked condition.  Else why would all of Bruce's linenbacked stuff be in a "mini/major"... 

By the way, does Bruce ever have just a "Major" auction?

Post by: Bruce on April 23, 2012, 10:07:08 PM
By the way, does Bruce ever have just a "Major" auction?

From 1990 to 2003 I organized 16  auctions that took in between $500,000 and $1,200,000 each. They were annual or semi-annual.

I (and the rest of the hobby) called those "major auctions".

When I went to four or six "better" auctions a year, each with around $250,000 of posters, I felt they were not "major" but clearly far superior to the weekly auctions, and I searched for a name and came up with Mini/Major, which has stuck.

Someday, when the right collection comes along to serve as a nucleus, I would like to do one more truly "major" auction, but it wouldn't be mostly retreads of major auctions past, as so many auctions are. And if that never happens, so be it!

I think to newbies in general on linen it may be worth more, to us wiser folk I think being on linen is worth the same or less than unbacked. To me it is worth less backed - been stung too many times.

In a major auction the items are likely to be the more desirable & harder to find items so people would put up with the linen.

To someone who gets their own poster backed, it is worth it. When it comes to resale, its buyer beware.

The site I am building (of my collection) will show the pre backed photos to help allay some concerns if I go on to sell any.

Maybe you could call them "Very Fine" auctions?

From 1990 to 2003 I organized 16  auctions that took in between $500,000 and $1,200,000 each. They were annual or semi-annual.

I figured your Christies auctions would be the major ones.  So would you say that the Major auction is dead; say mostly due to the internet/eBay?  Anyone can auction a poster now (not as well as you of course  ;))...

You know I think a linenbacked poster should come with a guidebook or something detailing pre-backed, during backing, and post backed pictures and commentary...

I still don't get that about the Berwick posters. If they were practically like new like they kept saying, why not run before pictures of all of them? Of course we will never know what would have happened, but I can't see how they would have done worse, because bidders would have lost their fear.

As to "major" auctions, you have to understand that from 1990 to 1992, there were ONLY those three Christie's auctions, and that EVERY top dealer and collector were behind them. They all flew in to see them, and the rooms were filled to overflowing. Right before the 1992 auction, a collector joked to me that if a bomb had gone off in that room, there wouldn't be a hobby left to speak of!

THAT type of auction we will never see again.

With the one exception, being the last auction, all the auctions overlapped so it's easy enough to view almost everything at the same time.

That said there's probably an argument to suggest that if one is going to run FOUR Mini/Majors then they should ALL overlap i.e have a special Mini/Major week that start on Sunday-Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday

Title: eMoviePoster.com can come to you to get your collection (if it is large enough)!
Post by: Bruce on May 01, 2012, 04:46:38 PM
(https://www.emovieposter.com/images/announcements/dyk/20120425_here_come_the_trucks.jpg)

eMoviePoster.com can come to you to get your collection (if it is large enough)!

Now of course the above cartoon is an exaggeration, but not by as much as you might imagine! On Sunday April 8th, a truck driven by two of our employees pulled into our warehouse, and it was FILLED with the entire collection of a dealer/collector who had decided to consign everything he had to us (more about our employees picking it up below). The next morning we received a truck delivery of over one TON (2,000 pounds) of movie posters from another dealer who had decided to quit the business. And just two weeks later a collector drove to us with his vehicle filled to overflowing with choice posters he needed to sell!

Now we are the ONLY movie poster auction there is where this is not that remarkable, and, because we own an entire city block, we can easily accommodate even these kinds of massive collections. And of course most days we receive ten or twenty packages sent to us by some of our over 900 consignors, and those don't pose a problem either!

But because we auction on SUCH a massive scale (2,000 to 2,500 items most weeks and well over 100,000 items a year) we ALWAYS need more consignments. Here are our most common types of consignors:
1) Dealers who are looking to sell all their slow moving inventory at one time, so they can reinvest the proceeds into items that are more salable.
2) Dealers who have just purchased items or entire collections specifically intending to "flip" most or all of what they bought to us, because this way they do no work (other than get the items to us).
3) Dealers looking to quit the business, usually because they are fed up with eBay, and/or the daily grind of creating auctions and sending packages, and they know there is no better way to liquidate (with no work) other than through us.
4) Collectors whose tastes have changed or who are looking to get rid of the items in their collection they least care about, so they can free up that money to buy new purchases, and without essentially getting a second job selling their items!
5) Collectors who have reached a point where they are ready to sell their entire collection, and they want to of course get the most money while not needing to try to sell the items one by one.

ALL of these types of consignors know that WE are the people who they have had honest dealings with for years (many up to 23 years) and they know it makes sense to entrust their valued collectibles to someone they KNOW they can 100% trust.

NOW ABOUT US COMING TO YOU TO PICK UP YOUR COLLECTION! If you have a VERY sizable collection (in terms of total value of the items, or the total number of items, or both), then it can be incredibly daunting to consider having to pack and ship everything (and this is greatly compounded when the owner is getting along in years, or when it is an estate situation, where the heirs know little about the items).

In these cases, we can offer to have eMoviePoster.com employees come to YOU, and expertly pack the items into a truck and drive them back here. Now of course you need to pay the cost of that move, but often it will be less than the cost of simply sending the items, and there are two great benefits. First, you save the considerable time involved in packing a large collection (after first acquiring the packing material) and second, there is next to no chance of any damage to your valuable possessions!

So if YOU are a collector or dealer with a VERY sizable group of items that you have been considering selling, why not give ME, Bruce Hershenson, a call at 417 256 9616, and let's talk! The best time to reach me is during the week, during business hours, or you can email me your phone number and the best time to call you.

THINK ABOUT IT! Right now there are lots and lots of buyers for movie paper, and they are paying top prices for "better items". When you combine that with the fact that you can give your items to us and not have the slightest worry about our ability to auction a huge number of items or our honestly, then shouldn't you be giving me a call if you have thought about "selling out"?

Now of course, we also want your consignments if you DON'T have a huge amount of valuable items, but we can't send a truck to you (but you are still welcome to call me and discuss what you do have, and whether what we offer is best for you)! And you will be talking directly to the owner of the business, who has done nothing but this for 23 years. Because we have sold to over 34,000 movie paper collectors over the past 23 years, of course it makes sense that some fair number of them are reaching a point in their life where they have considered selling some or all of what they have. If this describes you, then why not give me a call soon at 417 256 9616?

Title: You think YOU are a dedicated poster buyer? THIS is dedication!
Post by: Bruce on May 02, 2012, 08:42:26 AM
One of my bidders had the misfortune to be in Thailand with limited Internet access while the current Mini/Major auctions are closing.

He THOUGHT he had found a good connection, but then THIS happened:

"I am here on a tiny island in Thailand with sporadic Internet which is the polite was to put it. At 10PM last night the electricity went out, came back on but I lost the Internet in this stunning villa with a private swimming pool and a view that is amazing. But, no Internet. It is pouring rain and I wanted to bid in this auction. So, I grabbed an umbrella, jumped on the motorbike and went looking for the Internet. The umbrella was as useful as my first wife's commitment. I folded the umbrella up just like the wife and got soaked going from bar to bar trying to find the Internet. My iPad was dry but the rest of me could have used a wringer. So, I found an Internet cafe and until they threw me out, I bid on the auctions. But there were still auctions left! Then I actually ended up under an eave of someone's villa until 3:30 AM dealing with this auction."

Title: Our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction was an unqualified MAJOR success!
Post by: Bruce on May 07, 2012, 11:13:38 PM
Our Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction was an unqualified MAJOR success!

Total dollar sales of the 1,511 items in the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction: $352,398
Total number of buyers of the 1,511 items in the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction: 532
Total number of consignors of the 1,511 items in the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction:110
Total number of consignors of the 1,511 items in the Spring 2012 Mini/Major Auction who had sales of $10,000 or more: 11

Here's the response we got from one of the many other consignors who had between $5,000 and $10,000 in sales: "I am really ecstatic with how everything turned out on the 10 items you sold for me during your latest mini/major.  It's like you often say.  Quality items always do well.  You ZOOMED past my goal to get $5,400, BRINGING AN ASTOUNDING TOTAL OF $6823!"

Our next mini/major auction will be held at the end of August. If YOU are one of the 942 collectors and dealers who have consigned to us in the past, NOW is the time to start looking over your items and deciding what you want to consign to us, because even though the consigning deadline is around two months away, those deadlines have a way of creeping up on you, And if you are one of the very few collectors and dealers who have NEVER consigned to us in the past, then shouldn't you strongly consider joining almost every major collector and dealer and consider consigning?  And it doesn't need to be mini/major material; send one sample consignment and you are likely to quickly become yet another regular consignor!
Title: NO eMoviePoster.com auctions closing today!
Post by: Bruce on May 13, 2012, 09:41:33 AM
There are NO eMoviePoster.com auctions closing today (but there ARE 806 great Sunday auctions of rolled or formerly unfolded one-sheets; it is just that they run for two weeks, closing one week from today on May 20th).

Of course there are lots of other auctions, but do those OTHER auctions:

1) ...describe ALL their items accurately (both in regards to condition, and year of release of the item), and gives you a conservative overall condition grade for every item?
2) ...package ALL orders super-securely, with custom made double-strength packaging?
3) ...have a no questions asked return policy on EVERY item, and listen and act quickly on any complaints you may have (and if they are at fault, do they pay all costs and give you free bonuses as an apology)?
4) ...give you an absolute ironclad guarantee of originality of EVERY item they sell (and take back any rare item that was inadvertently mis-described)?
5) ...send ALL orders very quickly (usually in 24 to 48 hours of receiving payment on regular auctions, and within five days on major auctions)?
6) ...quickly add any corrections when they make an error in an item's description (either in regards to the film itself or the condition of the poster), and do they immediately e-mail all bidders on that item?
7) ...offer great FREE bonuses (to those who order multiple items in a single week)?
8) ...have a cancellation policy that lets you cancel small wins that are under the cost of shipping?
9) ...let you combine wins from up to SIX different sets of auctions, and pay only a single shipping charge if they can be sent in a single package (up to TWELVE sets of auctions if you live outside the U.S.)?
10) ...only charge you the actual shipping cost (sometimes below!), plus just $2 for packaging materials?
11) ...provide unenhanced supersized images of ALL of their items (ones that show 100% of the item, and let you see virtually every flaw that the item has)?
12) ...start all of their items at $1, with no reserves on ANY item?
13) ...have deceptive "buyers premiums" that enrich themselves, but come out of the pockets of both buyers and sellers?
14) ...have phone, fax, and e-mail service and the ability to take ANY kind of payment you choose to make, any way you choose to make it?
15) ...let you see WHO is bidding on what items (including all under bidders), both during the auctions and afterwards?
16) ...have an "autoship" option, where your purchases can be automatically sent the day after every auction ends?
17) ...e-mail you within hours of the auctions ending, giving you a combined list of all your purchases, and a combined total, along with full payment instructions?
18) ...send you an e-mail as soon as they receive your payment, and another e-mail as soon as your purchase ships (along with a tracking number, if applicable)?
19) ...only send you one promotional e-mail per week (none if you ask to never get ANY!), and NEVER sell or trade your contact information to anyone ever?
20) ... have a 23 year track record of selling vintage movie paper to over 34,000 movie paper collectors worldwide?
21) ... have a search of their current items that includes directors, all of the top cast, genre, poster artist, and more, that allows you to quickly locate items you are interested in?
22) ... have an ACCURATE sales results database of 700,000 records that only gives you actual paid for prices (no sales that fell through, items that were returned, items that were renegotiated, etc.), plus enlargeable images of 600,000 of those sold items?
23) ... have TRUE customer service, and if you are not happy with how you are being treated, or how your order is handled, either before, during, or after the sale, you can immediately talk or write to the owner of the company?

If the answer to ALL of the above questions isn't yes, then you aren't dealing with eMoviePoster.com, the world leader in movie paper auctions, now in our 23rd consecutive year of million dollar plus sales (and our 9th year of TWO million plus sales, and our 4th year of THREE million plus sales)!

Post by: Bruce on May 18, 2012, 05:59:07 AM
Here's a real day-brightener of an email we just received from one of our customers:

"I just wanted to tell you guys that I think you do an incredible job over there at emovieposter. The website is terrific and the whole process is very organized, all the way through to the shipment. I have been collecting posters for 20 years and you guys are by far my favorite people to work with.  Everyone is always friendly and prompt and willing to go the extra mile to make things perfect.

A couple of weeks ago I won a poster (awesome) and asked to add on a win from an auction from the following week - no problem, done. Saved me $11 in shipping!"
Title: Praise for the quality of our super-sized images
Post by: Bruce on May 22, 2012, 09:35:23 AM
We recently received this e-mail

"The lobby card which I bought from you arrived today in perfect condition, thanks to your superlative packing. I am delighted with the card, which is my favourite of all lobby cards. In fact, it actually looks even better in reality than in your scans, as the super-size image brings up even the tiniest imperfection very clearly. I know nobody else who provides this degree of enlargement service that let's you see exactly what you are buying."

All super-sized images are NOT the same! Many auctions provide what they call "super-size" or "giant" images, but do they REALLY show every tiny flaw like OURS do?

Some auctions don't want to show you those flaws because they think they will get better results if they gloss over defects (or hide them with fuzzy scans), but isn't this penny wise and pound foolish, because once an auction "burns" a buyer one time, they are quite likely to not buy from that auction again.

Yes they are great!  Sometimes I just go through and save the images as a later reference because once the auction is over so go the large images...  I'll even go farther to say that when I was first setting up my new (ruled and suspended camera) setup, I took a poster I had won from you and the image Lee had sent me.  I then took a picture of the same poster with my setup.  I then compared the two - at first my image was more blue so I adjusted a few things and played with some settings and viola!  They finally matched pretty good, and they matched what lay there on the board.  Only difference is you have a four light setup and I am still only using two.  I also probably need some more wattage...

So it is easy to say that your photos are the gold standard that I strive to achieve with my own photography...

I should post some comparison photos if I kept them...

I used to have an employee group photo as my signature. Just for fun, I had Phillip animate it so that it shows the 26 people in the exact order they joined us since 1999, so it shows how we grew over the years.

Title: You still get true customer service at eMoviePoster.com!
Post by: Bruce on July 06, 2012, 08:00:56 AM
We allow all U.S. customers to combine ALL their purchases over a two week period into a single package (whenever it can be done safely, of course), and that is a HUGE savings for them (we go one better for non-U.S. customers and let them combine over a FOUR week period, because shipping costs are so much higher).

Recently a U.S. customer discovered a typo on our site where we put that he could have 19 days instead of 14, so he wanted to combine over that longer period. We honored the error, and stated that we did because it was our mistake, but that in the future he had 14 days, and of course added that he had done nothing wrong.

He replied "Thank you for your prompt and thoughtful response. As a result, I now feel that my concerns have been fully addressed. You've lived up to your customer service pledge and I will remember that when friends and associates seek my recommendations about where to purchase movie memorabilia online."

Having true customer service is fast becoming a thing of the past at most businesses, but NOT at eMoviePoster.com!

Post by: Bruce on August 02, 2012, 01:24:33 PM
VERY LAST CHANCE TO CONSIGN! eMoviePoster.com's Fall 2012 Mini/Major Auction (8/26-9/9)!

Start saving your money for our 2012 Fall Mini/Major Auction

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/announcements/20120725_fall2012mmpreview_homepage_logo.jpg)

BE SURE TO GO TO http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012Fallpreview/20120731_ad_fall2012minimajorauction.jpg (http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/2012Fallpreview/20120731_ad_fall2012minimajorauction.jpg) TO SEE PREVIEWS OF GREAT POSTERS!

Know that the deadline for consigning has passed, but if you have one or two REALLY special items you would like considered for inclusion, please contact us ASAP!

It's ABSOLUTELY your FINAL CHANCE to consign to our Fall 2012 Mini/Major Auction.  It will run in four parts from Sunday 8/26 to Sunday 9/9. This auction will include special collections of Star Wars and Clint Eastwood items as well as many other great posters. The Star Wars collection contains most of the very best Star Wars posters from the first three films (Star Wars: A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi), and we are accepting consignments of ALL items from those three films where we have not already been consigned an example. The Clint Eastwood collection contains a really unbelievable assortment of Eastwood items from his best movies (including of course, the Man With No Name trilogy, and the Dirty Harry movies). We guarantee you will be amazed by how many great Star Wars and Eastwood items will be contained in this set of auctions!

If you have ANY excellent item(s) you wish to consign to this auction, you should contact us right away, as the deadline to consign to this set of auctions has passed, so if you were thinking of consigning, NOW is the time to e-mail Phillip at phillip@emovieposter.com to see if we can get your better items in this excellent set of auctions.

We have a LOT of excellent items for this auction, and this is THE best place to enter your quality items at auction (because we charge the lowest rates of any major auction, and overall, we get the best results, and we do so while auctioning the items in a completely honest manner!).
Title: Re: This is the very final chance to consign to our mini/major auction!
Post by: Bruce on August 04, 2012, 11:08:33 AM
We have had a positive FLOOD of last minute consignments to this auction (and to our regular auctions as well).

Here is a typical one:

"Today, I sent you guys two packages for consignment.  After using your main competitor for several years, I decided to make a change due to 'extra charges' I experienced from them earlier this year.  I sent you 30-40 lobby cards including several higher end ones and 6 one-sheets.  Hopefully some of the lobbies will make it into your upcoming major mini auction if there is still time."

If YOU have no been happy with the places you have been selling your items (especially if you don't want those 'extra charges' or huge buyers premiums, or are fed up with eBay's ever-rising fees and ever-lowered visibility) why not give us a try? You'll quickly discover what makes us so different from all other auctions. Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign&myfrom=menu (http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign&myfrom=menu) for full details about consigning.
Title: OUTAGE PROBLEM WITH OUR AUCTION HOST, AUCTIONANYTHING.COM
Post by: Bruce on August 11, 2012, 05:33:13 PM
Around one hour ago, the site of our auction host (who actually conducts our auctions), AuctionAnything.com went completely down.

This means that while the galleries on our site still worked, no one could place a bid on any of our current auctions during that time.

THE PROBLEM WAS JUST FIXED, AND HOPEFULLY IT WILL NOT RE-OCCUR!

Anyone who has followed our auctions the past four years knows that AuctionAnything.com has had a remarkably consistent record of remaining available at all times, and this is far and away their longest outage ever (in the past, there have only been a few, and those were for a few minutes each).

We very much apologize to anyone who was trying to bid during this one hour period, but we are not the actual auctioneer (just like those who sell on eBay), so we have no control over this element of the auctions. We hope that they can find the problem and ensure it does not reoccur.

True, but had it been exactly 24 hours later, it would have been a giant mess!

Incidentally, our policy is that if the auction host is down when auctions close, those exact auctions are cancelled and those items only are re-auctioned.

We have never had to do this even for one auction in our four years being hosted by AuctionAnything.com, but it came up several times in our years with eBay, including once in one of our Vintage Hollywood Posters auctions.

Title: An update on our iron-clad buyer warranty with NO time limit for all buyers!
Post by: Bruce on August 15, 2012, 07:43:47 AM
The past couple of months we have been feverishly checking over many of our past sales, looking for errors we made as to release date, and whenever we find one (or someone notifies us of one) we then find any buyers affected by that mistake and offer them a full refund (including shipping both ways) EVEN IF MANY YEARS HAVE PASSED SINCE THEY PURCHASED THE POSTER!  This is our iron-clad buyer warranty with NO time limit for all buyers, past and present (see http://www.emovieposter.com/unused/20120625ad_emovieposter_no_buyer_beware_buyer_warranty.jpg for full details).

Here is a recent example of one unwitting mistake we uncovered, and the e-mail we sent the long ago buyer:

This e-mail is regarding your purchase of PLANET OF THE APES French poster on 3/25/2008 for $248. At the time we auctioned this poster, we believed it was from the original 1968 release of this movie in France. But we recently discovered that the poster is actually from an undated (1970s) re-release. The printer mark dates to the 1970s and is different from the printer mark used on the 1968 poster. You may have known this when you purchased the poster, but we did not, so we wanted to be sure you knew.  If you did, that's great, but if you did not realize this was from a 1970s re-release, you are welcome to return it for a full refund, because we guarantee everything we sell, no matter how long it is after the sales date.

Just let us know whether you want to keep it or return it (and if you want to return it, we will send you instructions).  Of course, we very much apologize for our mistake, and we assure you that we had no idea that it was a re-release, because we NEVER intentionally deceive any of our customers.  We've made notes about this in our system so we do not make this mistake again. We are the only auction we know of who offers refunds for mistakes even YEARS after the fact, and we are also the only one we know of who tracks down the buyers and doesn't wait for them to discover the mistake themselves! We await your reply. Thanks."

A month later, we received the following reply:
"Hello, I now just had time to go through my email, so sorry for the late response.  I will have to locate the poster, but I would be interested in a refund since it is not from the original release date. On a side note, thanks Bruce and team for your honesty in matters like this.  This is why you guys are easily the best source to purchase from for real movie material. Regards,"

We re-replied:
"No problem! It has already waited 4 years, so what's a while more? Thanks for your kind words, especially since we made the mistake (but we assure you it was unknowingly). When you locate it, let us know and please return it to us, securely wrapped. We will refund you in the same way that you paid once it has arrived. Please also let us know your cost of return shipping."

WE AT EMOVIEPOSTER.COM COMPLETELY TAKE THE "BUYER BEWARE" OUT OF BUYING AT AUCTION!

Looks like some people want to turn their large collection quickly into cash. Maybe family inhereted it. Our collections might end up the same way in a quick fire sale.

If I was a Clint or SW fan, I might be interested in many of these items, however in one hit I could only afford to purchase some. If they were sold in stages I would likely buy more over time and thus add to the competition/price presumably. Oh well, who knows. I just hope my collection doesn't all get sold of at once with a $1 starting bid.

If too much is being auctioned at once, then this is a golden opportunity for dealers to buy now (and sell later at a huge profit) and for collectors to get some of those incredible buys that may result. Yes, you might not get all you want, but if you get a few at really low prices, that is good too.

Of course, given that these are two extremely popular areas, it is also possible that there will be enough buyers to cause most of the items to go for fairly high prices, but only time will tell (and you all certainly have nothing to lose by placing a bunch of low bids).

Remember that the first two galleries only contain HALF of the total items in this Mini/Major auction!

It seems counter productive to advertise bargains for an auction when, in order to obtain said bargains, you normally have to hope that most people don't know about it or forget to come/bid.

Though I guess in general, it becomes a catch-22. Do you go after appealing to buyers or sellers? The more you try to advertise to buyers (ie: lowest prices, etc.), the higher the risk of alienating sellers. And vice versa.

Title: Now is the time to consign to our Halloween auction; view our mini/major today
Post by: Bruce on September 10, 2012, 08:55:45 PM
We just got really excellent results in our Fall 2012 Mini/Major Auction (over half a million dollars!). For the next day (until Tuesday night around 9 PM CST) you can see all the results from Parts II, III, and IV in one gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/results.html. Please take a couple of minutes to go to that gallery and see how the auction did, because we think that once you do, you will have GREAT incentive to consign items to one or both of our remaining special auctions to be held this year (assuming you have one or more "better" items you would consider auctioning)!

Our 13th Annual Halloween Auction will be held from October 25th through November 6th, and it is sure to contain many great horror/sci-fi posters (we've already received a lot of nice material). It has always been very popular with collectors and is surely the best place to auction YOURS.  The deadline to consign to this set of auctions will be in Friday, September 21st which is less than 2 weeks from now. Be sure to e-mail Phillip at phillip@emovieposter.com to let us know what you plan to send. The sooner you get your items to us, the more likely it will be YOUR item(s) that get auctioned as we can only include one example of each poster we are consigned (and every year we are consigned many items that are duplicated to other consignments, so WHEN you consign can make a big difference!). Note that you can consign any sort of posters (U.S. or non-U.S.), lobby cards, or stills, but if your items are not "better" quality, then you should check with us before sending them for this special auction.

And if you have "better" non-horror/sci-fi items, know that it is fine to send those consignments for our December 2012 Mini/Major Auction! That auction is almost always one of our very best of the year, and the deadline for consigning will be in late October, but there is no sense putting off consigning and then end up missing the deadline, so be sure to e-mail Phillip at phillip@emovieposter.com to let us know what you plan to send

With eBay's near total implosion, and their raising of rates, we think we are head and shoulders above them, and when you send to us, you do no work at all, other than getting the items to us. And when you compare our results to those of competing auction sites, well, we really know that we do better overall! Plus, you know that your consignments will be well handled, you will have great communication from us, and at any time you can call me, Bruce, on the phone if you have the slightest problem.

Thanks in advance for any consignments you may make!
Title: Nice feedback I just received!
Post by: Bruce on September 12, 2012, 09:02:06 AM
A fellow bought an item from us and told us he needed it ASAP because it was a present, and he offered to pay more to have us send it right away. I told Angie to tell him we would get it sent that day, and that he wouldn't pay anything extra. He sent this reply:

"Please let Bruce know I appreciate his generosity all the more because I have never made a expensive purchase like Moon Over Miami.  Every purchase I have made has been a pleasant and easy transaction.  You are a small group of people running an impressive company providing quality 'entertainment paper' that is wonderfully displayed and accurately described."

I replied to him:
"Thanks for your kind words. We DO treat everyone the same whether they spend $5 or $5,000!"

We invite all of you to come bid at eMoviePoster.com and see what makes us so very different from other online auctions!

Well done Bruce and team!

Any thoughts on the state of the hobby? Are you seeing increases in certain areas (like 80s posters for example)? The classics holding their value? Anything declining?
Title: Re: It's official! Tuesday we passed $3 million dollars in sales for the 5th time!
Post by: Bruce on October 05, 2012, 06:06:55 AM
I would say that the branch of the hobby that primarily collects 1980s to present posters is the most vibrant and fastest growing segment, and that some of the "old school" areas (like b-westerns) are understandably slowing down quite a bit, likely due to aging of those collectors, and the small number of new collectors taking up those areas of collecting.
Title: What this country needs are some $5 lobby card sets! We currently have 332!
Post by: Bruce on October 16, 2012, 06:34:08 PM
Didn't some politician say "What this country needs are some $5 lobby card sets"? If not, maybe one will say it tonight at the debate!

If not, they should have, and they would have found 332 of them TONIGHT on eMoviePoster.com at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html!

There are still 6 Items with no bids (1%), 69 Items at $1 or with no bids (7%), 89 Items at $2 or less (9%), 140 Items at $3 or less (14%), 226 Items at $4 or less (23%), and 332 Items at $5 or less (33%)!

And with everyone watching tonight's Presidential debate (where the President will surely wake up from his stupor and clean Romney's clock), there may be very few last minute bids placed, so there may be even MORE great deals than usual!

But you can't get those deals and steals if you aren't bidding. FIVE DOLLAR (and lower) lobby sets! Who'da thunk it?
Title: I want your help for a series of upcoming Face/Offs for our Home Page
Post by: Bruce on December 21, 2012, 07:45:30 AM
HERE IS WHAT I WANT HELP ON!

I want to do a new series of Face/Offs comprised solely of great actors facing off against themselves in their TWO very best roles.

Here are two of the most obvious:

Clint Eastwood: "Dirty Harry" against "Man With No Name"
Humphrey Bogart: "Sam Spade" against "Rick Blaine"
etc

I would prefer it be where the roles to be SO well known that I don't even need to put the name of the movie, just their character names from both movies, but of course it doesn't have to be that (if people know the movie well, but not the character name).

So put your thinking caps on and let me know what you come up with. You can post suggestions here, or you can email them to phillip@emovieposter.com

Thanks very much!

P.S. For those of you who don't know, every day we have a Face/Off, where you pick one of two choices. You can vote in our current Face/Off by going to our homepage, http://www.emovieposter.com and voting in the Face/Off section at left.  We post a new Face/Off every day at noon Central Time, and each lasts one day (until noon the next day).  The one exception are the ones that start on Friday which we run until Monday at noon.  Be sure to come back to our homepage every day to participate!

Here is how the voting works:  Look at the two choices presented. Below the picture, select the choice you like best and click "Vote". You'll instantly see the current results! It doesn't matter how you choose to place your vote, so use whatever criteria you prefer. After all, this is just for fun!  Why not try it out?

Title: Did you know that our auctions have a significantly "new look" to them?
Post by: Bruce on July 28, 2013, 01:25:51 PM
     A few weeks ago, we announced an upgraded auction template (see this article). This week we want to announce further improvements to this new look (you may have already noticed these changes as they began with the current Tuesday auctions and Thursday auctions). Our goal with these changes was to streamline the auctions, making it easier to get to the details you want to see and faster to get to the bid box (no more long scrolling to the bottom of the page!). In many cases, these changes mean all the main auction details will appear on a single screen!

Below is an image that shows BEFORE and AFTER examples of auctions that illustrate these changes. The "X"s in the "before" half of the image at left indicate the areas where we have REMOVED information (don't worry; the information has only been re-located!). The numbers & arrows in the "after" half at right indicate areas to where that information was re-located. Now we will explain what has been changed by number (of course, the numbers in the following text correspond to the numbers in the below image).

1) We moved the cost of shipping details to the top of the auctions.

2) We now include the "overall condition grade" at the top of the auctions for a quick "snapshot" of the item's grade. You can click a "Details" link that will show you the full condition description which is still located near the bottom of the auction description. We made NO change to how we condition items, and we will continue providing detailed condition descriptions as always.

3) You'll note that we removed our old buttons for "Large" and "Supersize images". In the new format, you can see the "Large" image by clicking on the thumbnail at the top of the auction. You can see the Supersize image by clicking the button to the right of the thumbnail that is labeled "Take a Closer Look: View Supersize Image". NOTE: The thumbnail image becomes a slideshow of images when there are more than one for an auction.

    A  very important note about the thumbnail/slideshow: The "slideshow" image programming code is third party code provided by our auction software provider (meaning it is used by all of THEIR clients) and we are their only client with super-sized images. This means the short answer is, we aren't able to make it function with the super-sized at this time (and this is why we provide a button to view the Supersize image). We DO intend to pursue this improvement, and it is awaiting its turn in the production schedule.

4) We have always provided an "info" page for each set of auctions that describes overall details about the set of auctions. We moved that link to be a button which is now displayed to the lower right of the thumbnail where it reads "About This Set of Auctions". NOTE: If you've never looked at this page before, you should check one out HERE (this one is for the Thursday auctions that close Thursday, August 1st) as it provides details like a description of any special collections we are offering, a charge of what is being offered, and general shipping notes for the items in the auction.

5) We moved the bid box up so that it comes immediately after the details for that particular auction.

We realize the text in the below examples is very tiny and hard to read, so we recommend you view a current auction (such as this one) to see these changes "in real life".

(https://www.emovieposter.com/images/announcements/dyk/20130726_template_changes.jpg)

Our goal in making these many changes was to get YOU (the bidder) as much of the most important information you want to see (the image, the condition, the shipping cost, and links to the details of the condition and the supersized image) as close to the top of the screen as possible. We know full well how hard it can be to view 1,000 auctions at one time, and we feel certain the above changes will make it far easier for everyone to do so!
Title: We are adding in the 200,000 or so old "missing" images to our Auction History!
Post by: Bruce on August 10, 2013, 11:57:44 PM
We are currently working very hard at adding in the 200,000 or so old "missing" images to our Auction History! Those of you who visit our Auction History regularly at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html know that it is far and away the best resource on the entire Internet (or elsewhere!) for researching current and historical values of vintage movie posters (and also to see images of just about every movie paper item known to exist). And unlike other online databases, we ONLY include items where that price was paid for IN CASH, while other databases include LOTS of results that "fell through", were re-negotiated, or where the auction house was in fact "buying" the poster from itself! It also has a far better search mechanism than any other, letting you quickly find the exact results you are looking for.

But there has been ONLY one real flaw to this database (a fairly minor one, in the big scheme of things!), which is that we did not start keeping perfect online images of all our sales until 2004, so for a lot of sales prior to that date, we only have the date and price sold online, but not the image of that item. This ONLY affects pre-2004 sales, but it is a total of around 200,000 images of the 841,970 oldest online results (we DO have images of 635,541 results, which is pretty remarkable!).

But the good news is that these 200,000 or so images are merely "misplaced" and NOT "lost forever" and we are working on fixing this! What do I mean when I say they are "misplaced"? First, for many of them, the sole issue is that they were not named in the way we now name images, so we can't simply add them to the correct auctions (of course, we could have someone do it one at a time, but it would likely take one person several years, at least, and we are not going to do that!).

But that applies only if we want to make 100% certain that the exact correct image goes on those pre-2004 results. What we can do to incredibly speed this up is to use ANY one of the misplaced images to fill in a missing spot. If we only sold that item ONCE, then it will be the exact image of that item. But if we sold that item more than once (say something like a CARRIE one-sheet!) then the image on that pre-2004 result might be up a different CARRIE one-sheet we auctioned during those pre-2004 years.

The only real downside to this not always having the exact right image on some pre-2004 results is that sometimes the condition won't match up (it might say "very good to fine", and the stock image may clearly be a lesser condition than that). So to be sure no one is misled by this, we will put a disclaimer on all those images explaining that they may not be the exact image. But in every case, they will be auctions that occurred 10 to 15 years ago, so we feel certain it won't be that big of a deal to anyone, because we think few people are going to be basing current prices on results from that long ago!

We have begun this pretty massive project, and have made some real behind the scenes progress in naming these 200,000+ misplaced images. Hopefully we will conclude that portion of it and be onto the next phase of this in the next few months and have it completed by the end of this year (or sometime early in 2014).

Title: Our lifetime guarantee on everything we auction!
Post by: Bruce on September 07, 2013, 08:09:05 PM
We spend a MASSIVE amount of time determining if posters we auction are from the very first release or from an early re-release, and we guarantee that EVERY poster we auction is from the release we say it is from (except for Italians, because truly NO ONE has any real guidelines for knowing first releases, and they re-released so many movies so many times).

On those occasions when we discover that a poster is NOT from the release we thought it was from, we go back throughout our 800,000+ previous auctions and find every time we auctioned that same poster incorrectly, and then we e-mail those buyers, offering to take it back for a full refund (including shipping) even when it has been many years since we made that sale!

This costs us well over $1,000 every month, and sometimes much more (in re-auctioning the posters properly identified as our own consignments, and taking the loss from the lowered result) and of course there is also the cost of the labor involved in finding these mistakes and e-mailing about them, but it is well worth it because it gives our buyers COMPLETE "peace of mind" when buying from us (and separates us from every other major auction, all of whom operate on the "buyer beware" philosophy, where they take zero responsibility for ALL errors they make).
Here is a recent example of an "error" e-mail we sent, telling of our error, and our discovery of the error:

"This is Bruce. I'm e-mailing you regarding your purchase of an ON THE TOWN Danish R60s on 11/24/2009 for $65.00. At the time we auctioned this poster (several years ago!), we believed it was the first release poster. But we recently discovered that the poster is actually a 1960s re-release. Know that if you still own the poster, then you are welcome to return it to us for a full refund (and we will even pay the return shipping, as long as you send it by an inexpensive method), because we guarantee everything we sell, no matter how long it is after the sales date!  Of course, you may have sold the poster, or you may prefer to keep it even with knowing the new information (assuming you did not know it at the time you purchased it). Either way, please let us know right away whether you want to keep it or return it (and if you want to return it, we will send you easy-to-follow instructions). We are the only auction we know of who offers refunds for mistakes even YEARS after the fact, and we are also the only one we know of who tracks down the buyers and doesn't wait for them to discover the mistake themselves! We await your reply."
In this case, that particular buyer replied as follows:

"Hi, Bruce and other eMoviePoster folks.
I greatly appreciate your notice to me that a Danish poster of "On the Town" that I purchased in 2009 was mistakenly described back then.  I plan to print out and retain a copy of your notice with my records.  However, while I appreciate your offer to return it for a full return, I plan to keep the poster for now and will not need to take you up on your offer. It is truly gratifying to see that your organization goes to great lengths to ensure that the posters is sells are accurately described, and that you stand behind the products you sell, even well after the initial sale. Thank you for this notification and do keep up the good work!"

Of course, this gives us MUCH greater incentive to make very few listing mistakes!

Title: Consign now to our Halloween, December Major, & special Monroe/Hepburn auctions!
Post by: Bruce on September 10, 2013, 08:58:57 PM
I am posting this for four  reasons.

1) The FINAL deadline to consign to our 14th Annual Halloween Auction is Friday, September 20th. We have been consigned several great horror/sci-fi posters and lobby cards, but we would love to get lots more!

Given the really sensational horror/sci-fi results from our just concluded September Major Auction (did anyone expect Attack of the 50 Ft Woman one-sheet to sell for $19,000?), this certainly seems to be the time to consign quality items! We have top bidders looking to get top titles, and they love to buy from us, because they know that we are 100% honest in our condition descriptions (especially on restored items), so we get more money than do other auctions (or eBay sales), and yet we charge the lowest commissions of any major auction (and if of them say otherwise, then they are flat-out lying).

But in this auction, it is also fine for you to send inexpensive horror/sci-fi items as well! If you are a dealer who has a digitized inventory, it should be very easy for you to search through your items and locate and send just horror/sci-fi items to us. But since the deadline is close, be sure to send an email to ua to let us know what you plan to send. Note that you can consign any sort of posters (U.S. or non-U.S.), lobby cards, or stills.

2) Now is also the time to consign to our December Major Auction. With the great success of our just concluded September Major Auction (see below), it is clear that we have lots and lots of top buyers, and they want to buy any sort of quality item (at least from us!). We already have quite a few excellent items consigned, and this is sure to be another great auction!

IMPORTANT! I am going to be making a really major effort to keep lesser posters out of the December Major Auction. Why? Because there were around 20% of the items in the September Major Auction that sold for under $50, and I absolutely believe that those items would have done BETTER in the regular weekly auctions, because there, they would have been between the "middle of the pack", and the top items, so many more people would have seen them, because so many people only sort high to low and look at the top few pages of items.

But in the major auction, they fell at the very end, and they got far fewer views, and I believe that cause them to go for less (and of course, some people are going after expensive items, and skip the less expensive ones because they have to decide how to spend the money).

So I am asking all of you to bear this in mind when sending items for the December Major Auction. Of course, you can send items and leave it to ME as to whether they should be in the major auction or in the regular auctions (because my goal is the same as yours, which is to maximize how much the items sell for!). It is not a question of strictly price, but also of rarity and desirability. When I put an item that we have all the time in the major auction, I think that few people are "fooled", and most of them know that it is something they can skip and bid on the next time it shows.

Here is a "teaser ad" we just created for the December Major Auction:
(http://www.emovieposter.com/online/20130909_decconsign_preview.jpg)

As the September Major Auction absolutely proved, we consistently get higher prices for quality items, specifically because we have a LOT of top buyers who mostly only purchase from us (because they are tired of negative experiences at other venues), and because our buyers KNOW that they can completely trust our condition grading, our unenhanced images, our descriptions of the amount of restoration each item has had, that we will pack everything wonderfully and only charge the actual cost of shipping, etc, etc, etc! Shouldn't YOU consider sending any quality items you have considered selling to us so that they can be included in this very special auction?

3) Our just concluded September Major Auction was a major success with $447,421 in total sales, and our June Major Auction also had great results, and in both sets of auctions, we picked up many new buyers who have continued buying in our three regular weekly auctions, and those have had really great results as well!

Of course, when you look over the September Major Auction results, many collectors will be most struck by the $19,000 for the ATTACK OF THE 50 FT WOMAN one-sheet or the $16,607 for the LAWRENCE OF ARABIA pre-Awards British quad, but there are lots and lots of other wonderful results for all sorts of items! You can view solely the items from each part at these links:
    http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/date/2013-09-01/archive.html Part I Results (COMPLETED! $203,166 in sales): 385 one-sheets (linenbacked & unbacked, rolled & folded)
    http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/date/2013-09-03/archive.html Part II Results (COMPLETED! $78,889 in sales): 384 linenbacked posters
    http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/date/2013-09-05/archive.html Part III Results (COMPLETED! $65,430 in sales): 272 rolled posters of all types
    http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/date/2013-09-08/archive.html Part IV Results (COMPLETED! $99,936 in sales): 241 LCs, "flat package" items, and "paperbacked" posters

Why have we received so many great results? Of course, a large part of the credit goes to our wonderful consignors who gave us so many rarities, but it is also quite clear that more and more collectors prefer to deal with an auction house where they KNOW that every item has been 100% accurately described, that the images have not been enhanced, and that they will almost certainly not have any problems before, during, and after their purchases, and that if somehow they do have any problem, then the owner of the auction (me!) will quickly step in to resolve that problem!

Please look at ALL our results (not just the top ones), and we know that you will see that they verify that we at eMoviePoster.com DO get the best results overall (and this is true at every price level, when you compare "apples to apples and oranges to oranges")!

I don't want to embarrass anyone by citing specific examples, but I have been seeing case after case of items auctioned on eBay and items auctioned on auction sites other than ours, where the items auction for FAR under what we have auctioned the same or similar items for (in many cases, we have auctioned the exact same item in almost the exact same condition for double or triple the amount, and the two auctions took place only days or weeks apart)! This goes to prove what I wrote above, which is that we have many buyers who don't look at eBay or other auction sites, and all our bidders are willing to bid higher in our auctions, because we completely eliminate the "fear factor" (the item might be a repro, the seller might have overgraded it, the item might be poorly packed, etc).

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20130906_seven_year_itch_linen_JC08715_L.jpg)

4) We were recently consigned an excellent collection of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn items, and we will be putting an "All Monroe/Hepburn Auction" on our schedule (likely for mid-December, just in time for the holidays). The collection contains many of the best one-sheets and Belgian posters from the films of both actresses, plus a few other sizes. But there is room in this set of auctions for many more items, so if any of you have Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn items you wish to consign to this special auction, please <mailto:phillip@emovieposter.com?subject=Monroe or Hepburn items to consign>e-mail Phil a list of what you have (so we can tell you if we have them or not). Please note that consignments to this special auction will be included based on a "first consigned, first included" basis, so there is a real incentive to contact us right away with what you are considering sending! This is sure to be a wonderful auction!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20130906_german_a1_breakfast_at_tiffanys_JC08737_L.jpg)

This is the latest in a series of similar "special" auctions we have held (Star Wars, James Bond, Clint Eastwood, Frank Sinatra, etc), and in each we have received excellent results "across the board". We have no minimum value for consignments to this auction, so you dealers should look through your inventories and consider sending us ALL of your Monroe and Hepburn items!

And if YOU consign to ANY of these special auctions, then maybe next time you will be reading about a crazy high result on YOUR poster!

Title: How eMoviePoster.com was born!
Post by: Bruce on September 26, 2013, 07:01:29 PM
In 1999 I was watching EVERY collector in the world forced to buy a scanner and lots of other equipment and essentially start a part-time mail-order business so that they could sell on eBay, and I thought, "Wouldn't it be great if there was a central location where everyone could send their items to and that place would list them, and then the collectors would not have to do anything other than mail their stuff, and buyers would know they could count on honest condition descriptions and great packing?".

And that's how eMoviePoster.com was born! For the rest of the story, see http://www.emovieposter.com/comic_archive.php?id=1 (http://www.emovieposter.com/comic_archive.php?id=1)

Oh the days of $9 domestic shipping - must have been amazing for you Yanks ;)

If you REALLY want a good cry, know that I just came across an invoice from 2000, when we were able to charge $4 flat rate to anywhere in the U.S., and FOURTEEN dollars flat rate to anywhere in the world.

If there were to somehow be a collapse in oil prices and a return to THOSE kind of rates, there would be an explosion of poster buying from all over the world.

Instead, rates keep rising. It is worst for those who sell cheap posters one at a time. At least with us, most buyers get at least five items, and many get dozens, so the cost per poster is not so terrible, but it is hard for anyone to justify buying one ten dollar poster and pay way more than that in shipping.

Title: We have made a significant improvement to our invoices
Post by: Bruce on October 19, 2013, 07:19:16 AM
Did you know that we have made a significant improvement to our invoices? A weakness in our much loved "Pay and Hold" system (which allows all U.S. customers to accumulate as many items as they can in a three week time and get all those items sent in as few packages as possible, and this is expanded to six weeks for non-U.S. customers!) WAS that when we sent out those "Pay and Hold" orders, the invoices only showed the dates you bought the items, and not exactly what you bought on those dates.

But NOW, We itemize the items bought through our Pay and Hold program on the invoices that we e-mail to buyers, which means that you can now view ALL the items you purchased in an easier to read format. This is especially helpful for those who purchase from lots of sets of our auctions, because it is easy to forget all that you bought over the previous three or six weeks, and now your e-mailed invoices show you EXACTLY what is in each order you are sent!

Title: We just made a significant improvement to bidding on our site
Post by: Bruce on October 19, 2013, 10:39:06 PM
Did you know that we just made a significant improvement to bidding on our site? THIS IS A WONDERFUL CHANGE, BECAUSE SO MANY OF OUR BIDDERS USED TO BID ON EBAY (of course, we also know that many of them have quit eBay, either in whole or in part!). But on eBay, they allow bidding in dollars and cents (for no good reason whatsoever!), while OUR eMoviePoster.com auctions are "whole dollars only".


     Why is that a problem? Because some former eBay bidders would try to bid "$21.32" on one of our auctions, and it would end up coming out as "$2,132", which meant they had to contact us to cancel that wrong bid, if they even noticed it themselves. But thanks to a wonderful programming change just made, special characters (anything not a number) are no longer allowed when bidding. So now, if you try to type anything that is not a number (like a period or a comma or a dollar sign), you will be shown an error message and the non-number will be removed from the bid box. This should GREATLY cut down on the relatively bid mistakes we have had in the past!

Thanks much! We have added around 20,000 of them. We have been preparing all the rest into our "standardized format" which has taken one employee many MONTHS, but somewhere in the next couple of months we should add over 100,000 in one fell swoop!

One caveat: On some of the oldest ones (mostly 2003  and earlier) we can't be certain we have the EXACT right image (we may have sold five of something in that period and there will be no good way to match those five up correctly, without spending a zillion hours doing so) and we will likely just take our best guess and add an image of the same item, with a warining that says "This may not be the EXACT image of the item we sold on this date". But it will just be on items at least ten years old, and I doubt people will be using those for pricing data, so I think this is a worthwhile trade-off.

Bruce, I know this would not be easy for you guys but since you do get so many posters through your auction house and have the opportunity to see each different variation on them would it be plausible to create an identification area where even if it is not stating real or not just shows the different variations on the posters.

Just for a small example if I remember correctly off the top of my head Jaws has three or four different styles with the main differences being two different color backgrounds and each having a different position of the NNS info and crop marks at the edges for those colors or the multiple Star Wars style A one sheets, etc. I know I for one would find that kind of detailed information even from a research point of view to be invaluable. I am asking because since your image database is arguably, or possibly not, one of the largest in existence it would be easiest for you to put together from a single source.

That would work best if we had all the super-sized images on the site, so each person could view the different ones themselves to see if it matches one of the known ones.

The problem is that the bandwidth needed for one MILLION super-sized images is insane and costly if it is on a server that never crashes.

My thought had been to put those on a pay section of the site, and then charge a minimal monthly fee for access to it, just enough to defray the cost of the server fees.

I have also contemplated adding in ALL the pressbook images of posters that we have never sold to this pay section, which would surely be many hundreds of thousands more.

It is still a "work in progress"!

I'd love to see the full pages in digital format but - ironically given all the fuss here lately - I can't see how you'd protect images of pressbooks if you scan the full pages in and try to sell them via a website.  

Unlike digital images of movie posters - which never have any meaningful value no matter how rare or valuable the underlying poster is - digital images of rare pressbooks ARE independently valuable.  

How would you protect them?  I think you'd have to sell them in some kind of protected Kindle format.

Title: The five parts of our December Major Auction combined totaled $820,029!
Post by: Bruce on December 11, 2013, 07:57:39 PM
The five parts of our December Major Auction combined totaled $820,029 which is our best auction since 1994!

Here are ten of the top results (because I picked some from each of the five parts, they are not the ten HIGHEST results overall):

GRIM GAME linen 1sh $67,166
KING KONG insert $36,050
BLUEBEARD'S 8th WIFE linen 1sh $18,500
BRINGING UP BABY linen 1sh $13,500
THINGS TO COME linen insert $8,750
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON linen 1sh $7,515
ENFORCER Italian 1p $6,100
CITIZEN KANE linen Swedish $5,525
HIGH SIERRA style B 1/2sh $4,500
L.A. CONFIDENTIAL int'l 1sh $2,327

The Grim Game Houdini poster set a world record for any Houdini poster (movie or magic). As usual, the "top ten" list above is dominated by classic 1910s to 1940s titles, but note that the rare international poster for 1997's L.A. Confidential sold for $2,327, almost a record for a poster from the 1990s (there is a very rare Matrix poster which has sold for slightly more, in one of our auctions)!

But we don't just show our very best results, and hide the rest!  To view each of the five parts, each viewable in an auction gallery, complete with everything that was on the auctions originally, plus the final selling prices (and each gallery is sortable and searchable) go to the below links at the top of this page:

http://www.emovieposter.com/sales/postersales.php (http://www.emovieposter.com/sales/postersales.php)

Ended Sunday, Dec 1st, 2013 : 292 horror/sci-fi posters and lobby cards (an unbelievable single owner collection of 1950s horror/sci-fi) in Part I of our December Major Auction ($156,340.00 in sales)

Ended Tuesday, Dec 3rd, 2013 : 488 linenbacked one-sheets in Part II of our December Major Auction ($272,735.00 in sales)

Ended Thursday, Dec 5th, 2013 : 394 non-one-sheet linenbacked posters (other U.S. sizes, 25 other countries, travel, war, & more) in Part III of our December Major Auction ($106,920.00 in sales)

Ended Sunday, Dec 8th, 2013 : 283 "oversized" items (including large linens, unbacked items, & paperbacked items; all of which ship in large tubes or oversized flat packages) in Part IV of our December Major Auction ($172,256.00 in sales)

Ended Tuesday, Dec 10th, 2013 : 476 rolled & folded posters and lobby cards in Part V of our December Major Auction ($111,778.00 in sales)

As noted above, the total for this major auction was the highest we have had in just under 20 years. The 1,930 items sold to a total of 526 different buyers (and surely there were at least that many more who bid on one or more posters but did not get any), which shows just how wonderful a selection this auction contained, because there were items for EVERY movie poster collector!

It also shows that collectors really like our lack of buyers premiums, our honest condition descriptions, and our never charging more than the actual cost of shipping. We have been doing this full time for 24 years. It took us 13 years to achieve two million dollars in sales in a single year. But then it only took us five years to reach three million dollars in annual sales, and another four years to reach four million dollars, which we achieved just last year. Amazingly, we are going to exceed FIVE MILLION DOLLARS in sales in 2013, just one year later. We don't know what 2014 holds, but it is clear that the entire movie poster hobby is solidly behind our auctions!

Good to see many of the extremely rare 1920s and 30s posters have been updated with better images.
Keep up the good work.

I would pay to put full sized images on my site ;)

Title: We are currently offering a truly amazing collection of 316 Spanish heralds!
Post by: Bruce on February 10, 2014, 10:40:21 PM
Do you want to buy original first release full-color movie paper items from your favorite movies (often with completely different art from that of any other country), and NOT pay an arm and a leg to get them? We are currently offering a collection of 316 Spanish heralds (ending Sunday, together with Danish programs and a great offering of pressbooks), and this is far and away the best collection of these we have ever offered! It covers many decades and genres with many very popular titles. See them all at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/search/spanish/15.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/search/spanish/15.html)

Title: Did you know where you were on the night of Tuesday, May 30, 2000?
Post by: Bruce on February 15, 2014, 10:03:40 PM
Did you know where you were on the night of Tuesday, May 30, 2000?
     Friday, October 29th, 1999 was a historic day for eMoviePoster.com! On that day, we added our very first eBay auction (we only added ONE auction, to make sure it worked). It was a window card for The Birds, and it sold for $196.50 on Friday, November 5th. One month later, we added 28 items to eBay, and each week day after that for the rest of December, we added around 25 to 50 items, so we had items closing every Monday through Friday for the rest of December.

We continued in that fashion until Thursday, March 16, 2000, when I had an inspiration! It occurred to me that we could have auctions just one day a week instead of all five, so that our bidders would only have to sit at their computer ONE night a week instead of five. So on that day, we had our first test auction with 212 items that began on Thursday, March 16th and closed a week later.

We continued with our daily auctions, but we assembled 439 items in addition, and we began those in our second test on Monday, April 3rd, and those items closed on Monday, April 10th. We did the same until Monday, April 24th, when we had our third test set of auctions with 365 items. All through this time, we were still having our daily items, with around 10 to 50 per day.

Finally, on Tuesday, May 23rd, I took the plunge and eliminated the daily items, and went to solely once a week auctions. After having tried Thursday and Monday, I settled on Tuesday, figuring that Monday was bad because of Monday Night Football, and Tuesday was the best night, because it meant that we would have three days after the auctions closed to get the orders shipped before the weekend. Our customers quickly told us they much preferred the once a week auctions, and we switched to that format for the remainder of the year, auctioning mostly between 400 and 700 items per Tuesday.

But back to that first Tuesday auction from May 30, 2000. There were 139 buyers of those first 351 items we auctioned that day. We just checked, and of those 139 buyers, ELEVEN of them are still active buyers (some have bought in the last two weeks!). We feel that having loyal customers over a 15 year period deserves some reward, so we are sending those eleven buyers two special gifts, which we think they will much appreciate (if you are one of those eleven people, you will receive notice of what you are getting on Monday, and if you are not, then we don't want to make you feel bad by telling you what incredible gifts we are giving them!). But know that we very much appreciate having such loyal customers (because thousands of you have been buying from us for a decade or more)!

Of course, all of you know that we continued with our Tuesday auctions over the next many years, and during that time, we steadily increased the number of items we auctioned each Tuesday, with many auctions of 999 items, and almost all auctions were between 500 and 999 items. On April 19, 2007, nearly 7 years after our first Tuesday auction, we added THURSDAY auctions which were the same format as our Tuesday auctions, but they were clearly a "secondary" set of auctions, with "only" around 300 items each Thursday.

But by June of 2009, our Thursday auctions had grown to be the equal of the Tuesday auctions, with 500 to 999 items in each set each week. So on Sunday, June 21, 2009, we added SUNDAY auctions which were the same format as our Tuesday and Thursday auctions, but they were clearly a "lesser" set of auctions, with "only" around 300 items each Sunday.

That brings us up to the present! Our Sunday auctions have continued to grow, and they are now mostly equal to the Tuesday and Thursday auctions, and we auction 999 each time we do folded items, and 850 items each time we do rolled items (because it takes much longer to pack tubes than flat packages!), and our three auctions have the same number of items. We have held 673 Tuesday auctions, 344 Thursday auctions, and 219 Sunday auctions, and altogether, we have held 907,581 separate auctions (and that counts only the number of auctions; if you count the number of ITEMS, it is surely well in the millions!).

Title: We have been consigned an amazing set of twenty five 11x14 MGM color-glos stills
Post by: Bruce on March 12, 2014, 09:10:16 PM
"Color-glos" stills used a special kind of color printing that the studios experimented with in the late 1930s and 1940s. It has a different effect than regular color printing, and color-glos stills were made in both an 8x10 and 11x14 format, primarily only for major releases (including The Wizard of Oz, Gone With the Wind, and Citizen Kane!). They are far more rare than regular color or black & white stills or lobby cards for the same titles!

We have been consigned an amazing set of twenty five 11x14 color-glos stills that MGM issued in 1940, each with a different portrait of an MGM star, taken by a top MGM photographer. Over the past 25 years I have seen a very tiny number of these (fewer than five) and until now I did not know there were 25 different ones.

They are in remarkable condition, and will be auctioned individually in our April Major Auction!

Title: We are actively seeking artist info on all posters that we don't know already
Post by: Bruce on March 15, 2014, 07:09:49 PM
Did you know that we are actively seeking artist info on all posters, where we don't already know the artist's name?

     Several weeks ago, we quietly added a new feature to our auctions that makes it super easy for you to tell us who the artwork for posters where we don't already have that information! On ALL our auctions, if we know the artist who drew the poster (if it has art), we list the artist's name in the auction description just above the "Film Description". If we do NOT know the artist, we instead put the following in that same location: "If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know."

We encourage you to use that link when you know artists that we do not know. Know too that we go to great lengths to verify the information we are given, so if you can include references to how you know it to be from the artist you say, that will help us a great deal by saving us time AND by making our information more accurate.

Since we added this link (and without even announcing it), we have receiving artist information we did not previously have for HUNDREDS of posters (and those who have contacted us can feel very happy knowing that they have helped improve those artists' exposures through our auctions!), and we thank each and every one of those who have helped us in the past, and those who WILL help us in the future!

Please know that we only want 100% verified information! If the artwork itself is not signed, then we want info from the artist themselves, or from someone who obtained their info directly from the artist. LOTS of websites contain unverified or "guessed-at" artist info that is flat-out wrong, and we would much rather have NO info than even a likely guess!

Also, know that because this is automatically added to all auctions, it will often say "If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know", even when the item has only a photographic image, or no image at all! Please DON'T contact us to tell us that! That is why we put "(if any)"!

Also, if you have any sort of correction to what we wrote (like we have the wrong artist, of course, or we misspelled their name) then please click on the link and let us know that. And of course the same goes true if you have any additional information. Many artists only sign with their last name or their initials, and some have a nickname, and if you know more about that artist than we do, please share that as well!

Finally, if any of you have long checklists of what posters specific artists did, please send those to us, BUT ONLY if you are 100% certain of ALL the information in the checklist!

Here is one where I would LOVE to know the artist!

Title: eMoviePoster.com News
Post by: Bruce on March 21, 2014, 05:27:13 PM
The next two weeks will be the absolute busiest eMoviePoster.com has ever had, and I want to make certain those of you reading this are aware of the many different auctions we will be holding during that time!

1) We have the absolute finest selection of stills we have ever offered at one time ending SUNDAY AFTERNOON beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/15.html. Once you go to this link and look for yourself, I have no doubt you will agree that this is "as good as it gets"!

2) We have TWO giant auctions of one-sheets ending on Tuesday March 25th and Thursday March 27th. The first auction has 999 folded one-sheets at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html and the second has 850 rolled one-sheets (including a wonderful selection of 38 Star Wars posters at the start of the auction at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html. Together, these two auctions have a really fantastic selection of one-sheets, covering all years, genres, and stars!

3) You will recall that I have been paying attention to non-U.S. buyers who have told me that they wish our Tuesday and Thursday auctions did not "end in the middle of the night" for some of them. I can't find a way to change that without hurting U.S. bidders, but I can give EVERY non-U.S. buyer a real chance to have what they want, by scheduling the items they are most likely interested in (non-U.S. posters) to end on Sundays, when our auctions start closing four hours earlier than our Tuesday and Thursday auctions.

I have scheduled two non-U.S. auctions to run on the Sundays before and after our April Major Auction. Because these auctions will close starting four hours ahead of when they would have if they had been held on Tuesdays instead, as they normally are, this will find out if more non-U.S. bidders participate and the proof will be whether or not those auctions do as well or better on Sundays than they would have done on Tuesday. So please, all non-U.S. buyers who want earlier ending times, mark those dates on your calendars and be sure to bid!

4) You know all about our April Major Auction, and we will be adding previews of all 5 parts.

(http://www.emovieposter.com/online/20140318_aprilmajorauction_for_lamp.jpg)

So the following two weeks will be the busiest we have ever had, but that is why we have 30 employees! If you have any questions about any of the above, please either e-mail us or call us, and we will do all we can to help you. And at any time, if you have an urgent problem, you can call ME, the owner of the company on our "hotline" number at 417-256-5555 (something you can't do with  ANY other auction), and I will drop whatever I am doing and get your problem solved.

Best of luck to all of you on any of our items that you bid on over the next two weeks, in all of the above auctions!
Title: Re: eMoviePoster.com News
Post by: Bruce on March 21, 2014, 06:29:14 PM
Well, we worked all day, and we tried really hard, but we were unable to get a preview gallery of Part II WITH condition and in the right order. But we WERE able to create a gallery of all the images of the 500 linenbacked items in Part II, and you can view it here:

http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2014april/partii/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2014april/partii/)

So you can now see 1000 of the items in our April Major Auction! On Monday we will add the order and condition of Part II, and on Tuesday we will add the full preview gallery of Part III.
Title: Not a millionaire, but still want to buy great first release movie paper?
Post by: Bruce on March 22, 2014, 09:39:29 AM
If you are not a millionaire, but still want to buy great first release movie paper from classic films, why not check out our 999 vintage single 8" x 10" stills we are auctioning that close Sunday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/15.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/15.html)

The highlight of this sale is the collection of 185 incredible female portraits at the start (some of which will sell for over $100 each), but the rest of the auction is filled with lots and lots of great vintage stills from classic movies, and with just over a day to go, around 420 of them are still $5 or under! Of course it is also fun to look at these even if you are just "window shopping".

Here is one that is currently just $3

In 1925 Dorothy Parker famously wrote
"Men seldom make passes
At girls who wear glasses."

Maybe THAT is why you virtually NEVER saw a 1930s-1950s pretty actress wearing glasses. Above is an unusual exception from 1950, showing Arlene Dahl in a in sexy swimsuit wearing eyeglasses!
Title: Wanted: Corrections on our Auction History Database
Post by: Bruce on March 24, 2014, 06:46:13 AM
Our Auction History Database at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html has 922,504 sales results and 799,364 images (but we are working on adding in the "missing" 123,000 images, almost all of which are at least a decade old).

If YOU are an expert on any type of poster or specific movie (even self-proclaimed), please go to the above database and look over our data, specifically as far as the year of release goes, because dating many non-U.S. poster can be very tricky.

If you find an error of any sort, please do one of two things:
1) Send an email with the details of the mistake you found (and how you know it to be wrong) in an email to matt@emovieposter.com and he will get it updated within a day or two, and of course he will reply to you letting you know it has been fixed (or asking for more info).

2) With great fanfare, start a topic here on this forum in the Authentication thread, detailing what you found. If is fine if you choose this second approach, but if you do so, please consider ALSO sending an email with the details of the mistake you found in an email to matt@emovieposter.com, so there is no chance it is missed (I do not read all the posts here, and our Matt is not on here at all).

Our database is very much like Wikipedia. It is the result of thousands of collectors sharing their knowledge, and it is free to everyone. Unlike Wikipedia, we don't let people directly edit the database, and we take steps to verify what is submitted to us.

We look forward to many more corrections! The past few weeks have seen corrections posted on a handful of titles, but surely with 922,504 entries from countries all over the globe (and from over a century of film making) there must be thousands of mistakes to be found!

Between the teeth, the very defined, sweeping eyebrows and the small indented, slightly square chin... I'd say number 5 is Bartok, too. AMA has a round chin.  ;)

I am looking for help on three posters from Over the Edge, the 1979 Jonathan Kaplan crime teen rebellion melodrama. This movie, which brought Matt Dillon into the public eye, had a very unusual history! It was made right after "The Warriors" and "The Wanderers" were released in 1979, and since both those movies sparked teen violence after their openings, the studio refused to release this movie in the U.S. (although it had some limited releases in other countries in 1979). But after many critics acclaimed the movie as a masterpiece, the studio had first a limited release in the U.S. in December of 1981, and then it received a wide release in 1982.

Does anyone know exactly when each of the following three English language posters were created?

Isn't Dan Rickard (or whatever his real name is) a huge fan of this movie?  I seem to recall he is.  You should check with him directly, Bruce.  He's a member of this forum under Dan.

Bruce, does the 3rd OS (the b/w version) have written "®1982 Orion Pictures Company" in the lower left area, below the "Soundtrack Available On" line of text?

Could this be the 1982 release OS?

For those of you new to this forum, I am Bruce Hershenson and I own a city block in West Plains, MO. My business, eMoviePoster.com is located there (around 40,000 sq ft) and I currently have 30 employees. I started auctioning on eBay in 1999 and held 330,000 auctions there, for one-of-a-kind items.

I left eBay in 2008 with sales of over $2 million a year, and now auction 110,000 one-of-a-kind movie or poster-related items (far more than just "movie posters"!) a year on eMoviePoster.com and in 2013 we took in $5.1 million.

Sometime in 2014 I will hold my one MILLIONTH auction! I am searching for just the right gift to give to that buyer of our millionth item (it will happen late this year, so I have time). But it will be something REALLY special!

We at eMoviePoster.com have THE WORLD OF MOVIE POSTERS! 850 non-U.S. posters from 31 different countries ending SUNDAY AFTERNOON beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html.

Do you want to always keep up with our 2,000 to 3,000 WEEKLY eMoviePoster.com auctions? Please consider joining the 8,500+ members of our free weekly e-mail club at https://www.emovieposter.com/club/settings.php (it has been going since early 1999!) and/or join the 2,216+ following us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/emovieposter

Note that there is an important difference about this set of auctions! Normally we auction non-U.S. posters on Tuesdays or Thursdays, but because many of our European bidders have told us that it is inconvenient that those auctions close "in the middle of the night" for them, we have scheduled this auction (and also our auction of folded non-U.S. posters that starts on April 6th) to run on Sundays instead (see below for more on this). While this will surely help some of our non-U.S. buyers, there may be others who don't realize these posters are closing on Sunday afternoon, and this may create the opportunity for great deals! OF COURSE, THESE AUCTIONS ALSO END RIGHT BEFORE OUR GREAT APRIL MAJOR AUCTION BEGINS, SO THAT TOO MIGHT MEAN SOME BUYERS HOLD OFF, AND IF SO, YOU WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT!

I just looked over these 850 non-U.S. posters from 31 different countries, and many of the prices on these are really hard to believe! With just over two days to go, the items include 165 items with no bids (19%), 466 items at $1 or with no bids (55%), 496 items at $2 or less (58%), 543 items at $3 or less (64%), 590 items at $4 or less (69%), and 625 items at $5 or less (74%)!

HELLO! This is 2014 and I doubt you could have purchased many of these items for $5 (or far under) 20 years ago!  And you can get as many of these items as you want sent in one package anywhere in the U.S. for just 12 dollars shipping for all (or actual cost anywhere else), EVEN IF you win 100 or more! And if you are in our e-mail club (over 8,500 members), you get SEVEN full-color books as an added bonus if you purchase 15 items (no matter how inexpensive)! We are almost completely out of these bonus books and will end this promotion soon.

The below are the current top items:

6y689 INVADERS FROM MARS Italian locandina '58 classic, hordes of green monsters from outer space!
And on and on and on!

But wait! There's even more! If you are one of the 8,500+ members of our weekly e-mail club (and if you are not, you can join right now at https://www.emovieposter.com/club/settings.php!), you get seven of our full color books as a bonus if you purchase just 15 of these items, and we even pay the U.S. shipping on that bonus (if you live outside the U.S., you pay the difference between U.S. shipping and the actual cost of getting them to you).

Here is more about why these auctions close on Sunday: You will recall that I have been paying attention to non-U.S. buyers who have told me that they wish our Tuesday and Thursday auctions did not "end in the middle of the night" for some of them. I held a poll to see about having our Tuesday and Thursday auctions close an hour earlier, but the results were strongly in favor of leaving them as they are.

So while I can't find a way to change our Tuesday and Thursday ending times that would make most bidders happy, I CAN give EVERY non-U.S. buyer a real chance to have what they want, by scheduling the items they are most likely interested in (non-U.S. posters) to end on Sundays, when those auctions start closing FOUR hours earlier than our Tuesday and Thursday auctions.

Therefore, I have scheduled THIS auction of 850 rolled non-U.S. posters from many countries to run from Sunday 3/23 to 3/30, and an auction of 999 folded non-U.S. posters and lobby cards from many countries to run from Sunday 4/6 to 4/13 (right after our April Major Auction ends).

Because these auctions will close starting four hours ahead of when they would have if they had been held on Tuesdays instead, as they normally are, this will find out if more non-U.S. bidders participate and the proof will be whether or not those auctions do as well or better on Sundays than they would have done on Tuesday. So please, all non-U.S. buyers who want earlier ending times, mark those dates on your calendars and be sure to bid!

Don't forget to check out our 850 non-U.S. posters from 31 different countries sometime BEFORE they end in two days, SUNDAY AFTERNOON, beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) by going to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html

Did you know that you can save a huge amount of money by buying posters "pre-linenbacked"?

     Part I and Part II of our April Major Auction together contain ONE THOUSAND professionally linenbacked posters. Just about every collector of "older" posters knows that a large majority of those that survive have been professionally linenbacked and restored, because those posters were not only printed on an inexpensive paper stock, but they were also used in theaters, so most have pinholes or tape stains, and many have tears, tape repairs, etc. And even the best condition ones often have foldlines (almost all older one-sheets, three-sheets and six-sheets were folded before being distributed, and those foldlines are distracting, even in a nice condition poster.

So most collectors get these posters professionally linenbacked, and they are also restored during as part of the backing process (although some collectors prefer to simply back the posters and have NO restoration performed, and because this was more common in Europe than in the U.S., this is often referred to as being "in the European style").

When a poster has been well backed and restored, the difference can be night and day! All the unsightly defects vanish, and the poster now looks close to how it did when it was first created, and can be more fully enjoyed while it is displayed. Linenbacked posters are far easier to frame. An unbacked poster must be either "floated" in a frame, or carefully attached with conservation tape, whereas a linenbacked posters can simply be taped on the back of the excess linen, with zero chance of harming the poster. Linenbacked posters are also far easier to transport, as they are far less fragile than unbacked ones.

But this process is fairly expensive. Most top restorers charge around $125 to linenback a one-sheet that is in nice condition, and one that has restoration needs can often run $175 to $250, and even more for more serious defects. Larger or smaller posters cost more or less, depending on their size. So most people will only linenback a poster that is worth a few hundred dollars or more, although many others will linenback a less valuable poster, simply because they want to display it at its best and don't care if they are "losing" some money backing it.

BUT YOU CAN SAVE A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF MONEY WHEN YOU PURCHASE A POSTER THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN BACKED! Why? Because people tend to somewhat disregard the cost of backing when bidding on such posters. If a one-sheet poster usually sells for around $300 unbacked, then it might sell for $350 linenbacked, even though the earlier owner may have paid $200 to have it backed!

This is especially true with less expensive posters. EVERY time we auction linenbacked posters, we have LOTS of them that end up auctioning for LESS THAN THE COST OF LINENBACKING ALONE! Sometimes you can even buy linenbacked one-sheets for just $20 or $30! So if you like great deals, be sure to check out the ONE THOUSAND professionally linenbacked posters in Part I and Part II of our April Major Auction!

This can be even MORE true with linenbacked larger posters! Part III of our April Major Auction contains around 150 linenbacked three-sheets, Italian one- and two- panels, French one-panels, and other large sizes, and almost all of these were backed at a cost of $250 or more each, and yet some of them will sell for $25 to $50, a massive savings off of the linenbacking alone!

But when buying linenbacked posters, you always need to be careful that the seller or auctioneer is being 100% truthful about the amount of restoration a poster has had. We at eMoviePoster.com ALWAYS give a thorough description of the "pre-restoration" defects a poster has had, so you can bid knowing full well that what you receive will match what you saw, and that the poster did not have more restoration than what was described.

MANY OF THE BEST DEALS OF ALL THE POSTERS WE AUCTION EACH YEAR ARE THE LINENBACKED POSTERS WE AUCTION IN OUR MAJOR AUCTIONS!

Bruce, did (and do) all of the linen backed posters coming up in your Major auction(s) come to you already backed? Or do you send some pieces out to have done, prior, as well?

I'm just curious what the process is, since you have all of the minute, pre-restoration details on each of these posters. Or are consignors required to fill out a form, when sending linen backed items, describing all of a poster's defects prior to it being backed and retouched?

And if you do send things out yourself, can I ask who does the backing & restoration work for you?

 cheers

To lay out & go over 1000+ linen backed posters (for this auction with alone) with a fine tooth comb, look for & notate each tear and flaw, both large and small, like this, would take quite a bit of time, I would imagine. If that is actually emovie's process, major kudos to them!   thumbup

I DO actually do this, and I do it all myself. I have condition graded tens of thousands of linenbacked posters. I refuse to delegate this to others. Every auction I am sent posters that were bought at other auctions, and some percentage of them were massively mis-graded the earlier go-round. Maybe it was because they lacked experience, or proper tools, or maybe they were "looking the other way". Many others are sent to me that were accurately graded.

The vast majority of the linen posters I auction are sent to me that way. I prefer to auction unbacked posters as they are, so the new buyer can both choose the restorer they want to use, and also choose the amount of restoration they want the poster to have. Besides, an awful lot of backed posters auction for a significant discount to the cost of linen, so it is not necessarily a smart move to back a poster, UNLESS the seller is deceptive about the amount of restoration it has had.

Post by: Bruce on April 05, 2014, 10:56:36 PM
Part III of our April Major Auction contains around 200 large linenbacked posters (mostly 3-sheets, French one-panels, and Italian one- and two-panels) and with less that a day to go, around 30 of them are under $20 each and 75 of them are under $40 each, and yet they cost around $200 to $300 each JUST FOR THE LINENBACKING ALONE!

See just the linen posters here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/3/search/linen/records/80/15.html
Or see all the 282 excellent 'oversized' and paperbacked items of all kinds here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/records/80/sort/4/15.html

Just minutes to go until the items in Part IV start to close at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html and the bids are flying in fast and furious. As one very long time collector commented to me, this part of the auction is filled with great items you almost never see, and they are in better condition than the few you do see, and they are almost all completely unrestored. Items like those make for a great auction, and these auctions are fun to watch, even if you are not bidding!

P.S. We have a select group of eight excellent personally signed items in Part IV of our Major Auction closing tonight, and they include some excellent ones!

Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/searchfield/title/search/SIGNED/sort/2/13.html to see all eight signed items.

Title: An important difference in our current 999 non-U.S. posters & LCs auctions!
Post by: Bruce on April 13, 2014, 12:04:50 AM
There is an important difference in our 999 non-U.S. posters & LCs auctions closing Sunday the 13th (besides that 3/4 are currently $5 or under)!
     We have 999 Australian & German posters + other non-U.S. posters & lobby cards ending SUNDAY AFTERNOON beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html. and as of this writing, with a day to go, over 600 of the items are at $1 or have no bid!

But there is an important difference about this set of auctions! Normally we auction non-U.S. posters on Tuesdays or Thursdays, but because many of our European bidders have told us that it is inconvenient that those auctions close "in the middle of the night" for them, we have scheduled this auction (and also our previous auction of unfolded non-U.S. posters that started two weeks ago) to run on Sundays instead (see below for more on this). While this will surely help some of our non-U.S. buyers, there may be others who don't realize these posters are closing on Sunday afternoon, and this may create the opportunity for great deals! OF COURSE, THESE AUCTIONS ALSO END RIGHT AFTER OUR GREAT APRIL MAJOR AUCTION ENDED, SO THAT TOO MIGHT MEAN SOME BUYERS WERE DISTRACTED (or "wiped out", either financially or emotionally), AND IF SO, YOU WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THAT, BECAUSE THIS MIGHT WELL MEAN YOU GET MANY INCREDIBLE BUYS!

And the current bid prices on these 999 Australian & German posters + other non-U.S. posters & lobby cards certainly seem to bear this out! I just looked over these items and many of the prices on these are really hard to believe! With just over two days to go, the items include 220 items with no bids (22%), 605 items at $1 or with no bids (61%), 631 items at $2 or less (63%), 666 items at $3 or less (67%), 698 items at $4 or less (70%), and 726 items at $5 or less (73%)! THAT'S RIGHT! THE VAST MAJORITY OF THESE ITEMS ARE CURRENTLY AT $1 OR HAVE NO BID. THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD BE LESS EXPENSIVE WOULD BE IF WE GAVE THEM AWAY!

Here is more about why these auctions close on Sunday: You will likely recall that I have been paying attention to non-U.S. buyers who have told me that they wish our Tuesday and Thursday auctions did not "end in the middle of the night" for some of them. I held a poll to see about having our Tuesday and Thursday auctions close an hour earlier, but the results were strongly in favor of leaving them as they are.

So while I can't find a way to change our Tuesday and Thursday ending times that would make most bidders happy, I CAN give EVERY non-U.S. buyer a real chance to have what they want, by scheduling the items they are most likely interested in (non-U.S. posters) to end on Sundays, when those auctions start closing FOUR hours earlier than our Tuesday and Thursday auctions.

Therefore, I have scheduled THIS auction of 999 Australian & German posters + other non-U.S. posters & lobby cards  to run from Sunday 4/6 to Sunday 4/13 (just two days from now), and two weeks ago I did the same with an auction of unfolded non-U.S. posters.

Because these auctions will close starting four hours ahead of when they would have if they had been held on Tuesdays instead, as they normally are, this will find out if more non-U.S. bidders participate and the proof will be whether or not those auctions do as well or better on Sundays than they would have done on Tuesday. So please, all non-U.S. buyers who want earlier ending times, be sure to bid in this set of auctions!

Title: The "Holy Grail" of 1970s rolled one-sheets!
Post by: Bruce on April 14, 2014, 11:00:17 PM
Up until around 1980, just about every one-sheet movie poster was folded right after printing. After that time, the posters were made in two versions for a number of years, one folded like normal and the other completely unfolded.

But a very few pre-1980 titles can very rarely be found unfolded. Perhaps the "Holy Grail" of these is the Jaws one-sheet, and we have a very nice unfolded example of it closing Tuesday night at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=3375764

This is just one of the 850 rolled (or formerly folded) 27x40 & 27x41 one-sheets (all guaranteed to be originals!) we have at auction closing Tuesday night at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html

Seems like the 30x40s don't get enough respect considering that they're rolled too and on sturdier paper.   They look better displayed.

Title: World Record Prices for "newer" posters at eMoviePoster.com!
Post by: Bruce on April 19, 2014, 05:46:24 AM
We had a set of auctions of "newer" one-sheets (from the 1970s on, for the most part) close on Tuesday, April 15, and we achieved some world record prices for unfolded titles that are normally VERY hard to find unfolded!

Among the top results were:
JAWS unfolded one-sheet $2,109
RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK unfolded one-sheet $650
EMPIRE STRIKES BACK style B unfolded one-sheet $584

Why did these auction for so much? Starting in around 1980 the studios would print unfolded versions of posters, but the National Screen Service (NSS) mostly kept folding their posters for a few more years, but the above three posters are NSS versions that were never folded, and they date from 1975, 1980, and 1981, which makes them extremely rare and sell for a huge premium over the folded NSS versions.

But in addition to being really rare, people know that they can trust our condition grading. If the same posters came up in a random eBay auction, or at many other auction houses, they might have bid a fair amount less, simply because they had to leave room for the possibility of overgrading, which I call "the fear factor"!

I believe we have completely eliminated this fear factor, both because anyone who has bought from us in the past knows that we grade completely honestly, and of course, we also have a lifetime guarantee of authenticity, which we have backed up over and over.

You can see all of our results from the above auction of one-sheets here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/date/2014-04-15/sort/4/archive.html. The prices of the best of these "newer" posters continue to set records, so if YOU have any of these you have considered selling, why not consign them to us, and it can be YOU getting prices like the above?

Of course, the above posters were also greatly helped by being in excellent condition, and the fact that they were unfolded, when they are normally found folded. There are collectors with a "comic book/coin/stamp/baseball card" mentality who want the "highest grade known", and in movie posters, grading is very subjective, but rolled/folded is completely NOT subjective, so these guys love unfolded posters that are normally found folded, and they will pay world record prices for them, when they know that they can trust the seller 100%.

Incidentally, this set of auctions also proves something else. People often ask me if there is a "good" time of year (or specific dates) to auction movie posters or if there are "bad" times or dates. My finding, after doing this for 25 years, is that the time of year and date is almost completely irrelevant! If you have good items, they do good regardless of the date. The 15th is a case in point. It is the final deadline for paying taxes in the U.S., and you would think that many people would be either depressed or broke on that day, and yet we achieved world record prices!

Title: Does it make sense to sell hundreds of items individually on eBay these days?
Post by: Bruce on April 19, 2014, 12:26:05 PM
I am pretty surprised to see that there are still a fair number of sellers who sell hundreds of movie paper related items individually on eBay. I CAN understand if they get free listings and start the items at the least price they are willing to accept (accounting for eBay's commissions). You can only win (when you make a sale) and have nothing to lose. Of course you might only sell a tiny percentage of what you list, but if you are in no hurry, then that is OK.

But I am talking about those few who still start at 99 cents or a dollar. I look over the closing prices of those eBay sellers, and it looks to me like they usually get wholesale prices overall (because eBay is overrun with repros, and few people have the time or willingness to sift through them all), Of course, they STILL have to photograph all their items, create listings, and then deal with dozens or hundreds of buyers, and have to send dozens or hundreds of packages.

Is there a reason for ANYONE to auction on eBay and start at 99 cents or one dollar these days?

Want to buy movie posters from the past 20 years, including brand-new releases, but want to be certain you are not getting a repro? We have 850 mostly "newer" one-sheets closing Thursday, and you get a lifetime guarantee that every poster was either used in a theater or printed for theatrical use. And LOTS of them will sell for just $1 to $5, far under the cost of repros! See them all at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

Bargains galore! Just a day to go on our 999 folded one-sheets at auction at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/13.html and SEVENTY FIVE PER CENT of them are at $5 or under!

Remember that every poster started at a REAL $1 with no reserve (NOT one dollar plus $14 buyers premium). And U.S. buyers pay only a single $12 shipping charge whether they buy one or 100 (non-U.S. buyers pay actual cost, and they can accumulate as much as will fit into one package over a SIX week period). Shouldn't you shop where your dollars go the absolute furthest?

Title: Our very special Star Wars set of auctions ends TONIGHT beginning at 7 PM CST!
Post by: Bruce on May 01, 2014, 06:23:19 AM
Our very special Star Wars set of auctions ends TONIGHT, Thursday, May 1st, beginning at 7 PM CST at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/14.html. This collection of 91 Star Wars items contains almost every style of U.S. one-sheet from the first three movies (episodes IV, V and VI), and not only does it include both the "NSS style" and the "studio style" from each (where both were made), but also, EVERY one of those one-sheets are UNFOLDED, and they are ALL in excellent condition!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20140424_starwars_logo.jpg)

       Every long time collector of Star Wars material knows that it is next-to-impossible to find the NSS styles of the one-sheets from the first three Star Wars unfolded, so HOW does this collection contain almost all of them? The answer is that a single collector, Kevin Doyle, who saw Star Wars in 1977 and loved the movie then began a decades long quest to obtain all of the US one-sheets that had been produced.
      He soon learned that both "NSS styles" and "studio styles" for almost every style of one-sheet had been produced. (if YOU don't know what this means, please be sure to go HERE: http://www.emovieposter.com/announcements.php?id=738, where you will find a complete detailed explanation). But he quickly discovered that while all of those one-sheets could be obtained, it was between extremely difficult and impossible to find the "NSS styles" unfolded.
     That started him on a quest to find all of the one-sheets in an unfolded state, and he WAS able to find them for a high percentage of the different posters. Many of these NSS style posters are so rare to find unfolded that they are only offered every few years, and there are some that are never offered! But on May 1st, every one of these posters will have a new owner, and in the case of several of them, they may not be offered again for a VERY long time, if ever (three of them are the ONLY examples that has ever been seen of the NSS style of that poster without folds, and one of those is the ONLY example of the poster that has ever been seen, folded or unfolded)!
     The collection also includes one-sheets from the "other" three movies (episodes I, II, and III), and also some unusual and rare posters that are not one-sheets. You will find many items that are also rarely offered for sale, so be sure to look over all of the 91 items very carefully. The phrase "once in a lifetime" is certainly drastically overused, but this really likely IS a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase many Star Wars one-sheets that are almost never offered unfolded, and they will all be sold at one time on one day!

     Just two days ago, the cast for the long awaited SEVENTH Star Wars movie was announced at Starwars.com (at http://starwars.com/news/star-wars-episode-7-cast-announced.html). Here's what they said:
     "The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
     Director J.J. Abrams says, 'We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.'
     Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer. The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015."

(http://starwars.com/img/news/star-wars-episode-7-cast-announce.jpg)


Just like James Bond or the Universal monsters, the Star Wars franchise is timeless, because new movies can forever be made, and they are not dependent on individual stars who age! There will be new characters (and likely re-casting of old beloved characters) but the movies themselves will continue to be made, surely outliving everyone reading this. This insures that the original posters will continue to have strong collectible desire and value, as more and new fans are created by first seeing the new movies and then discovering the earlier ones. This is especially true of the posters from Episodes IV, V, and VI, because many of them were produced in limited quantities and are already quite difficult to locate, especially in excellent condition. This will only become more and more true over the coming years, as many of these become "locked away" in collections!

Currently, with just hours to go, almost all of these 91 Star Wars items are quite a bit under where the same (or similar) items have sold for in the past. This is surely because many bidders are waiting for near the end to bid (see below for more on this). I know that many of you are collectors but that some of you are dealers (and some BOTH!) and either way, YOU REALLY SHOULD CONSIDER LOOKING OVER ALL THESE ITEMS AND PLACING AS MANY BIDS AS MAKE SENSE TO YOU (if some items are going to sell inexpensively, then why shouldn't YOU get those good buys?). But you can't do that unless you bid, so why not go right now to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html and look at the many bargains?

SOME IMPORTANT ADVICE ABOUT OUR AUCTIONS, WHICH DIFFER FROM MANY OTHER AUCTIONS IN A FEW KEY WAYS: Please remember that in our auctions, a LOT of the bidders like to wait near the end of the auctions to place their bids! So don't get a false sense of security just because you have had the high bid for almost all of the seven days an item has been on for, BECAUSE ON BETTER ITEMS, IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR THEM TO DOUBLE OR TRIPLE IN PRICE IN THE CLOSING HOURS OR EVEN MINUTES. But also remember that our auctions have "time extended bidding", which means that five minutes must go by without a bid before an auction closes, so you can NEVER have an item snatched away from you in the final seconds (but you have to be watching the item as it closes, to make certain that no one entered a higher bid than yours in the closing minutes).

Good luck on whatever you may bid on in our very special Star Wars set of auctions ending TONIGHT, Thursday, May 1st at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html. This is a truly remarkable group of posters, collected over decades, but ALL those items will have new owners later tonight!

Title: eMoviePoster.com wouldn't be eMoviePoster.com without Phil, Angie, Clark & ...
Post by: Bruce on May 11, 2014, 11:46:13 PM
eMoviePoster.com wouldn't be eMoviePoster.com without Phil, Angie, Clark, and the other 26 eMoviePoster.com employees!

One question I get asked a LOT is "Would you ever sell eMoviePoster.com?" After all, I have been doing this non-stop for 25 years, and I am closing in on my ONE MILLIONTH auction! But there is no "yes or no" answer to this! I WOULD consider selling the business, but only under VERY precise conditions.

The buyer would have to be to someone who would run it exactly as I do, and I don't know that that person exists (or if they do, and if they have the means to buy the business, that they have a willingness to move to West Plains).

But much more importantly, the new buyer would have to keep all our current employees. Why? Do you remember the scene in Casablanca where Rick (Humphrey Bogart) is negotiating to sell his cafe to his main competitor, Ferrari (Sydney Greenstreet)? Rick says that "Sam, Abdul, Carl and Sacha stay with the place", or he won't sell. And Ferrari replies, "Of course they stay. Rick's wouldn't be Rick's without them." And if that very same way eMoviePoster.com wouldn't be eMoviePoster.com without Phil, Angie, Clark, and the other 26 great employees here!

We have been doing this SO long that we really have it "down to a science", and at every step of the auction process, from when the items first arrive, through their auctions, and all the way until they are shipped to their new owners! So I am afraid that all of you are "stuck" with me (and everyone here at eMoviePoster.com) for the foreseeable future! And we know we provide a REALLY useful service for buyers and sellers of movie posters.

Is this one of those phantom 'seven sheets'?

Sans credits, maybe this was for special commercial use?

Can I quote you to my consignors?
This seems to be absolute proof that "extended time" auctions result in more money for consignors. As a bidder, you of course don't like this (needing to pay more), but there are two clear benefits to bidders.

One is that you can never have an item you REALLY want "snatched" away by "snipers" (so while you pay more, you don't lose it).
But the other is that getting higher prices flushes LOTS of great stuff out of the woodwork! MANY of our consignors say "I saw the great prices you have been getting and that has caused me to give you this great rarity".

That would NOT be happening if we were getting typical eBay prices.

Title: Re: eMoviePoster.com News
Post by: Crazy Vick on May 14, 2014, 10:28:31 AM
I guess all formats (EMP and ebay type auctions) have their positives and negatives.  The extended time with EMP actually allows me to come to terms with the fact that I won't be winning the poster (think 5 minutes of crying in a feotal position). On the other hand last second sporadic, irresponsible ebay bidding leaves me feeling bad for overpaying for days...

Realize that if this WAS an option, then EVERYONE would use it, and ALL auctions would have no bids until the final five minutes, when a FLOOD of bids would hit each auction.

This would be good for highly knowledgeable bidders, like yourself, but BAD for less knowledgeable bidders, so I don't want to have it (even if it is possible, which it may not be) because it would benefit a tiny number of bidders, and hurt (and confuse) the rest of the bidders.

But I certainly understand your position.

Title: Do YOU have quality lobby cards you have considered selling?
Post by: Bruce on May 16, 2014, 06:24:49 PM
Do YOU have quality lobby cards you have considered selling? Have you considered trimming down your lobby card collection or selling it entirely?

You COULD put those cards on eBay at fixed prices, but then you would likely only sell one in a very great while, and you would still have to deal with eBay's wacky micro-managing of sellers, plus run the real risk of dealing with a bad buyer.

We at eMoviePoster.com offer you a better way! You send us the cards, and that is all you do. We can put them in our next auction of lobby cards, and we will sell ALL your cards on that one date, and then WE do all the work, and we send you payment for everything at the end of the month after the month in which they are sold!

We just had an auction of 999 single lobby cards, and it is clear we have the best lobby card buyers in the hobby!.

Review ALL the prices from the just closed auctions here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/date/2014-05-15/archive.html

After you do, go here to learn our simple terms (and we charge the lowest rate of any major auction): http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign

Then, send us your cards, and next time it can be you watching your items sell, as you do no work at all!

THIS IS YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO CONSIGN to our July Major Auction. With the great results from our April Major Auction (and similar great results from all of our major auctions this past year), it is clear that we have lots and lots of top buyers, and they want to buy any sort of quality item (at least from us!). We already have quite a few excellent items consigned (I will be posting more promo ads very soon, and if you have top quality items to send, you have a chance of having yours included in the promos if you send them quickly). THE FINAL DEADLINE FOR CONSIGNING IS MAY 23RD (which is this coming week, so you must act NOW, or miss out!).

If you are someone considering selling some of your "better" items, then now is your LAST CHANCE to let us know what items you might have for our July Major Auction! Be sure to e-mail Phillip right away at phillip@emovieposter.com to let us know what you plan to send, and we will quickly let you know if they are right for this special auction.

So May 23rd was our final deadline for consignments for our July Major Auction and ALL last week (leading up to Friday the 23rd) we were receiving ten to twenty packages and tubes a day, and trying to get it all dealt with was wearing my warehouse manager Clark completely out.

So when Friday came, I told him, "Well, now you can finally rest, because the deadline is passed", and then I thought, "But what if the consignors thought the 23rd was the deadline to SEND the packages?".

So we get in today (yesterday was the Memorial Day holiday, and there were no deliveries) and what happens? We get FIFTY THREE boxes and tubes delivered in a single day from UPS and USPS. And there is still no telling what tomorrow (and the rest of the week) may bring. But please, no one tell Clark about that!

There are also similar great bargains at every price level.

Don't be one of those folks who says the next day, "If I had any idea that would sell so cheap I would have bid", because I AM warning you that currently there ARE tremendous bargains!

Bruce, how is Once Upon a Time in the West considered Very Good when...

Card #8 (pictured at upper left) has been very neatly but slightly unevenly trimmed along the lower edge, and there are two areas of surface paper loss in the upper corners. Card #3 has surface paper loss in the upper corners and a small darkened piece of tape on back of the lower left edge (not put there for any restoration purpose) that slightly bleeds through to the front. Card #7 has a sticker on the back of the lower left corner that has no effect on the front, and a series of very faint numbers etched into the lower right blank border. A few cards have some slight creases.

This is not an attack.  I just want some clarification on how you grade these.

I saw Star Wars at the UA150 in 70mm a few years later as a part of a special one week, one show a day charity run (the original run had lasted over a year at the 150).  Pretty darned awesome.

A few years later, I saw an early HD test/press screening of a Monday Night Football game on the same screen - the largest projection of it's kind up to that time (it didn't fill the sides of the screen obviously).  It was the moment I knew film was completely dead.

Title: We have just added 393 new Fixed Price items & lowered existing prices!
Post by: Bruce on June 06, 2014, 08:09:43 AM
 I want to let you know that today, we have made two major changes to our Fixed Price store:

1) We have updated our Fixed Price store with 393 new items! We also removed all the sold out items and we have reduced prices on the remaining 600 or so items that were left in the store (we had sold out of approximately 700 of the items over the past several years, and our consignors of the remaining items allowed us to lower the prices on the ones that have not sold out, to better increase the likelihood that those remaining ones will sell out as well). In many cases, we have SLASHED the prices on those remaining items (usually by one third or more)!

As we have done in the past, we will continue to raise the prices as they sell (see below), so you really want to look these over quickly to see if there are any you want (both the 393 new items, and the 600 or so remaining items that have been lowered in price).

Here is a link to our Fixed Price store with the newly added items at the start (they are lots 1274 to 1691):
http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/2/2.html


IMPORTANT ADDED INFO: We usually receive a large volume of orders when we add new items, so please be understanding that it will take us extra time to fill these orders (please expect it to take a few days or so for your order to be filled). However, you CAN add these purchases to an existing Pay and Hold order, plus you can now buy these through our Checkout (see below).

2) THIS IS REALLY BIG! We have integrated our Fixed Price store (posters, lobbies, stills, etc) with our Checkout! This means you can purchase Fixed Price movie paper from us with the Checkout (in the past, you had to pay for these separately, which was a real hassle for both you and us, and we are so happy that you can now order them through the Checkout!).

Here are answers to some questions you may have:

    Autoship and Pay and Hold buyers: We will handle your Fixed Price purchases per your normal Autoship or Pay and Hold rules. If you want them shipped right away, please add a note when you use the Checkout. But know too that Fixed Price purchases are different in that you DO need to complete the Checkout in order to purchase the Fixed Price items.

    Will you combine with my auction purchases (if they are "combine-able")? Yes! And the Checkout will do it automatically (assuming the items can be combined!). So rolled items go with rolled items, and flat items go with flat items.

    What about books or MasterPrints? These have not been integrated with the Checkout yet. We will announce when they have been.

    What if I purchased a Fixed Price item at a higher price than it is currently offered for? We follow the policy that almost every major department store uses. If you purchase an item, and it goes on sale within 30 days of your purchase, then we automatically will credit you with the difference between the price you paid and the new lower price. WE CAN ONLY GO BACK 30 DAYS. Also, it will take us several days to process these credits, so know that they will automatically go on your account. If you purchased something OVER 30 days ago, and it is now on sale for a lower price, you just need to accept that, just as you do whenever the same thing occurs to you in any major chain store.

    If something about the Checkout doesn't work right, please e-mail phillip@emovieposter.com to tell us about it so we can get it fixed. The more details you can provide about what occurred (or what you expected to occur) will help! Please be understanding of any glitches you might encounter, as this is brand new. We HAVE thoroughly tested it, but if some problem occurs, we will quickly resolve it. But your letting us know exactly what the problem is will help us greatly.

For those of you who have forgotten how our Fixed Price gallery works, read below:

Our Fixed Price gallery
currently contains 1008 items (currently, zero are sold out, but that will soon change!) we are offering for direct sale to the public (no waiting to bid on auctions for these items!). The best part is, if you purchase any of these Fixed Priced items AND if they will fit in the same package with any of your current auction winnings, you pay little or no additional shipping costs (NOTE: if we can add it to your package without raising the cost of shipping, then we will do so with no added shipping charge, but if it raises the cost then you will need to pay the difference) if your order is going to the U.S. (and the actual cost of shipping anywhere else)!

Also, know that you have a great incentive to purchase any of these items you want as quickly as you can! This is because, each time one of these items sells, we raise the price by approximately 10% for the next one that we sell. This means, that the 5th time we sell one of these, it costs around 50% more than it did the first time, so obviously those who purchase early are rewarded. And of course, we can only sell as many of each item as we have on hand (usually 5 to 10 examples of each), and once they are gone, they are gone forever (unless some other consignor sends us more examples of them in the future), and since we have first started selling Fixed Price items, we have completely sold out of well over 400 different titles (thousands of posters in all)!

I want to thank all of you for your patience. I know it has been a long time since we've updated our Fixed Price store, but we wanted to wait until we had it integrated with our Checkout, and it has now happened which means it will be far easier (and faster) than ever to order Fixed Price store items from us!

eMoviePoster.com was founded in 1999 as the first all-movie poster auction website. We have auctioned over 928,000 posters through our auctions since 1999.

Title: One Thousand Five Hundred Consignors!
Post by: Bruce on June 11, 2014, 06:51:56 PM
Today we received a consignment package from a brand new consignor, and that makes the One Thousand Five Hundredth person who has consigned to us. That represents a very high percentage of ALL the active collectors and dealers there are!

Look around you at the people you buy and sell with, and I GUARANTEE you that most of them have consigned to us at least once, and most many times. If YOU are one of the very few active members of this hobby who have never consigned to us, why not put together a sample consignment and send it to us, so you can see what makes so MANY collectors and dealers choose to consign to us over anyone else. And if you have been buying from auctions for a long time, think about how you were treated as a buyer at each auction, and then decide which auction figures to treat you the very best when you are the consignor.
And remember that every day of the week, all day long, you can pick up the phone and call me directly on our "hotline number" at 417 256 5555. There is NO other major auction where the owner makes himself available for personal phone calls from regular consignors all the time, and many can NEVER be reached on the phone at all!

If you want to talk about consigning, call me at 417 256 5555 between 9 and Noon and from 2 to 5 any weekday! Or go onto our "no fine print" consignment page at http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign which answers most questions you might have.

The past few weeks have seen a two hundred pound crate delivered, plus an SUV and a 24 foot truck arrive, all stuffed full of posters. But because we auction so much (2,000 to 3,000 items per WEEK), we ALWAYS need more consignments!

YOU can be our One Thousand Five Hundred and First consignor, if you act soon (we usually get five or so new consignors each week!)

There is some truth to that...  I did forget about a few auctions since Bruce stopped bombarding us with ads.

I do understand his plea, though.  He was constantly under attack.  I'm sure he doesn't need forums.

I just realized that the reason Bruce couldn't see the link I sent him (it was regarding the day-glo Italian Wild Bunch) was because it was in the Authentications thread, which is not visible for non-members.  Oops.  I was assuming he employed some browser-based site block -- I use this to block certain sites during the day to make sure I get at least some work done :)

This is Swiss , Swiss also used a crown logo on their lobbys.

It would help if he listed if it's "Vecchioni & Guadagno" or not , imo this is 1st issue.

Also he should mention what edition on Italian Bruce Lee , almost everything is re-issue :

Big Boss (2sh/4sh?/Rotograph locandina & bustas , R70s Rotopress , R80s Sericolor)
Fist of Fury (Novograph 2sh & 4sh/Rotograph locandina & bustas , R70s Edistampa bustas , R70s Rotopress , R80s Sericolor)

When you post this here, you show a few dozen people how smart you are.

When you email us these, then we correct the mistakes in our auction history, AND email all the buyers, offering them full refunds, plus shipping, since we originally had incorrect information.

Even if it was many years ago.

So I hope you emailed us this info, in addition to posting it here.

I'm sure Tang will email you, the next time he logs onto the forum and sees your post.

And I hardly consider the info he posted to be "bragging" on his part; I think most here would see his post as being very helpful to both you and EMP, in general, with regard to having correct information.

(And if Tang doesnt email EMP any time soon, you could certainly pass the data on to Matt in your office (via cut and paste), who would then do the updates/corrections).

Heck, I would even be happy to send it to Matt if you don't have the time to. Let me know.  :D

I think we all suffer from everyone thinking Bruce has the time to pay attention to all these threads (which is usually at night) and then makes notes so he can then give the information back to his employees the next day to make the corrections.  I am on here every day and still once or month or so search my name to make sure I didn't miss anything and often find something.  I've e-mailed several times about things and whom ever is responding quickly replies that they will look into it... Within a few days I get a reply back and start to see the updates. 

I would suggest Tang, that you bombard him with information so that other collectors don't buy stuff thinking it's something it is not...  I think as a hobby we also under appreciate his free database.  Not only will the info be correct for buyers but even when you are buying from eBay or other venues (to make sure everything is correct).

Thanks, Charlie. I understand that some people won't email corrections while an auction is running, if they think they are getting a benefit from the wrong information (like if we were to identify a first release as a re-release). But even if that is the case, all I am asking is that they email the correction after the auction is over, so we can both correct it, and email the winning bidder, offering to cancel and re-list the item with the correct information.

If they ALSO want to come on this or any other forum and announce that they know more than us, fine! But I don't read every thread here or on the other forums, so if we are not emailed, we will likely not discover our error, and as you point out, many tens of thousands of collectors use this completely free and honest database (and unlike others, you don't need to be registered to use it).

As to being "bombarded" with corrections, we ARE! A large part of Matt's day is spent fixed errors we are emailed about, and we keep extensive notes about everything. And often a single correction can have a HUGE "ripple" effect, as when we learn that a specific printer or distributor is only from certain years, and that can lead us to many other corrections, all off of the one that was reported.

BIG NEWS! We now show detailed unenhanced scans of the fronts AND backs of every single lobby card we auction. 'Tis true! We have 999 single lobby cards (half title cards and half scene cards, a wonderful selection) at auction closing Thursday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html (http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html) and you can see for yourself how you can see the fronts and backs of every card.

For years we have been the ONLY major auction house that shows our bidders the fronts AND ALSO the backs of every vintage still we auction individually. Why? Because we know that our bidders love that they can see whatever stamps or snipes are on the backs of the stills, but also because seeing the back lets you see any tape or other repairs on the back, and also better helps you judge the overall condition of the still.

NOW, we are doing the same for every vintage lobby card we auction individually! We had been planning on doing this for quite some time, but when we were consigned several GREAT collections of lobby cards, we knew the time had come where we HAD to make this change. But we have to warn you. Once you get used to getting to see the backs of every card, you will find it very hard to deal with auctions that only show you the fronts!

If you like great lobby cards at bargain prices, and you like the condition descriptions to be accurate, and you like to see giant unenhanced scans of the fronts AND backs of every card, and you like auctions with no deceptive "buyers premiums", and you like auctions that REALLY all start at one dollar with no reserve, and you like paying the actual cost of shipping or under on all you purchase, and you like your purchases being sent super well wrapped, then THESE are the auctions for you!

But please go to the above link soon, because it takes a while to look over this many fine lobby cards, and in just a few hours they will all be sold, and there WILL be many great buys made on quality lobby cards, and there will likely be some real "steals"!

STEAL THESE POSTERS! We have 999 rolled (or formerly folded) 27x40 & 27x41 one-sheets (many of the best of the last 30 years!) closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

Want free movie posters? I can't give you that, but I can give you the very closest thing! Think I am exaggerating? With just a few hours left, there are 133 of them with no bid, 531 of them at $1 or with no bids and 698 of them at $1 to $5! Yes over HALF are at $1 or have no bid and 70% are at $5 or less each! At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin).

You could start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

If I could get the material and the employees needed, I would have SEVEN nights of auctions!

Each one would be based on a different type of collectible.

Because we auction everything with no reserve (for real), we don't need any knowledge of what we auction. Just describe them honestly and provide the needed images.

Choosing the name eMoviePoster was in itself visionary now that movie posters are indeed transitioning from paper to electronic Movie Posters.

John Wayne is not only an icon of the movies, but he also made at least one movie every single year he appeared in the movies (except for his tiny uncredited roles at the very start)!

So we have prepared a gallery of head shot images of him from one movie each year, starting with 1930's The Big Trail through 1976's The Shootist, so you can see exactly how he aged through the years (we also included an image of him when he appeared with Barbara Walters in 1979 on her special, shortly before his passing).

From the Newstand to the Silver Screen! Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/club/staticpages/newsstand2screen/ for a gallery of examples of comic book or pulp magazine characters that were adapted into Hollywood movies (there is an example of a comic book or pulp magazine) side by side with a movie poster image from the movie starring that character.

Want to see a lot more movie poster images from any of these titles? Go to our Auction History at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html and type in the titles, and on most of them, you will find from a few to lots of images! Click on any of the images to see a much larger image, and if you have any examples that are not represented on this page, let us know so we can add them.

Have something to counter the lobby/still/lot auctions in one of the weekly spots. The rolled from any country , one sheet, or even large format are good counters. Half sheet , insert, lobby, still, lot , misc stuff gives me nothing to look at for 4 auctions straight now. That's terrible!

Not everyone has deep pockets or a willingness to pore over 1,000 items, three times a week.

A lot of people LIKE the idea of having "a week off"!

I will try to find stuff to interest you soon, but in the meantime, have you considered expanding the areas you collect in?  thumbsup.gif

6a350 STAR WARS HEALTH DEPARTMENT POSTER 14x22 special '77 is actually the 1979 reissue of this poster. It is clearly dated 1979 on the bottom left corner area.

We want everyone to know and it is easier to do it anywhere in this forum or on other forums, anywhere but EMP email. You see, we get kudos here.

One way for EMP to win this battle is for poster slueths to submit as requested the corrections but have a tally board on EMP of contributors names with a kudos count next to each name. That way we can still be famous to the world... I think I deserve to hit the tally with 3 kudos points to start with for this solution.

Do YOU know about our Auction History Database, located at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archive.html? It is a searchable history of our past sales including almost all of the images from those sales.

Every item in this archive actually sold, and actually sold for the price listed, and was paid for to the consignor (which is NOT true of any other online sales results database we know of).

It currently contains 1,223,268 results and 1,173,443 images, and every week it grows by around 3,000 more results and images!

Whether you want the most accurate and comprehensive "price guide" to movie paper you own (or would like to buy), or whether you just want to "window shop" well over a million images, this is the database for you.

But please know that it can and likely will become addictive, so please use it in moderation!

I have often considered charging a nominal amount for non-bidders, but for now it is still free for all.

It's online and "live" and you can place your bids! Our all-Star Wars Auction is open at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/15.html

Remember that we are the only major auction in the entire world that has NO buyers premiums, honest condition descriptions of every item, and unenhanced supersized images of every item we auction!

Every one of these 443 items (which includes ONLY Star Wars movie posters, action figures and other related items) started at $1 with no reserve, and unlike the vast majority of auctions, every item REALLY will sell to the highest bidder!

Please do us a favor! If you find ANY mistake in any of these auctions, no matter how trivial, please send an email to "matt@emovieposter.com" and we will get them corrected on Monday.

And these auctions are lots of fun to look through, even if you are only "window shopping", because you likely will see many items you have not seen before!

And PLEASE share this post on your Facebook page or in any online forum where it makes sense, so that lots of Star Wars fans will learn about this wonderful set of auctions (and if you haven't done so already, please click "Like" on our FB page at https://www.facebook.com/emovieposter/)

We recently received this email from a consignor:

"Kudos to whichever of youse historians was able to correctly identify the three cowboys in my lobby card from the Covered Wagon I consigned! Amazing! 

By the way, your website is a wealth of educational information as well as a place where movie memorabilia has instant liquidity.  I used to sell my stuff at maybe 10 shows a year here on the west coast from Portland to LA, but those days are long gone.

I appreciate what you guys do!"

If YOU have movie paper of any sort (or posters of any kind, movie or non-movie) isn't it time YOU considered sending your first consignment to eMoviePoster.com? If you are like the vast majority of our consignors, it may well be the first of many consignments!

When you look at the current voting totals in our current Daily "Face/Off" (which runs over the weekend, because we are closed Saturday and Sunday), you will see that it is painfully obvious that movie poster collectors greatly prefer "bad" girls to "good" girls (just as they did yesterday with Kim Novak vs Debbie Reynolds)!

Got some extra time on your hands? Why not check out our current sets of auctions closing this Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday (2,997 auctions in all). Each set is very different from the others, but all are excellent (and I feel that you will surely agree, once you look over what is in them)!

The Tuesday auctions (at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html) have a really first rate selection of 999 single lobby cards (covering all years and genres with many great cards, with 434 title cards at the end) and many are incredibly rare. If you like lobby cards in the slightest, you will LOVE this set of auctions, and you may have a "problem" in finding too much to interest you!

The Thursday auctions (at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html) have 999 non-U.S. posters, lobby cards & stills (from 12 different countries). This includes a really first rate selection of Australian daybills and one-sheets, as well as rare German posters, plus much, much more!

The Sunday auctions (at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html) have 500 lots of vintage 8" x 10" stills AND 499 presskits (altogether containing 2 to 45 stills per lot with 9,104 stills in all!) and there are LOTS of great titles included!

Our amazing auctions of 999 single lobby cards (covering all years and genres with many great cards, with 434 title cards at the end!)  wraps up in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html

If you like great lobby cards at bargain prices, and you like the condition descriptions to be accurate, and you like to see giant unenhanced scans of the fronts AND backs of every card (we are the ONLY major auction anywhere that shows the backs of any cards and we show the backs of EVERY card!), and you like auctions with no deceptive "buyers premiums", and you like auctions that REALLY all start at one dollar and REALLY have no reserve at all, and you like paying the actual cost of shipping or under on all you purchase, and you like your purchases being sent super well wrapped, then THESE are the auctions for you!

But please go to the above link soon, because it takes a while to look over this many fine lobby cards, and in just a few hours they will all be sold, and there WILL be many great buys made on quality lobby cards, and there will likely be some real "steals"! Think I'm kidding? With around 13 hours to go until these start closing (as of this writing) there are 151 of these at $1, 306 at just $1 to $3 and 417 at $5 or under! And on the vast majority of the other 582 cards (even the highest priced ones), there are lots and lots of them that are a fraction of the "regular" retail price you might see these at any website or collectibles show (and there are many ultra-rare ones you may not see offered again for many years).

Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries. For example, in the case of these lobby card auctions, they include 271 cowboy lobby cards, and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "cowboy western", which will take you to this link: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/tag/genre%253Acowboy%2520western/13.html and then you will just see those 271 cards, in our gallery format! You can do the same thing for the 60 horror/sci-fi cards, the 62 film noir cards, the 49 serial cards, and on and on! Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

But please, if you can't look at these cards right now, then don't put off visiting the above link for too long, because it takes a while to look over this many fine cards, and in just a few hours they will all be going, going, GONE!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160412/550/lc_cover_girl_LF00447_L.jpg)

Also, here, at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016may/parti/, is a link to a preview gallery of ALL of the incredible collection of 307 linenbacked one-sheets (which runs from April 24th to May 1st), including the lot numbers, so you can see the exact order in which they will be auctioned!

Note that not only do we provide you with the exact condition grade that will be on the auction, but you can also click on any image and see the "super-sized" version, so that you can really know the exact condition of each item long in advance of the auction, so you can better prepare your bidding strategy.

They only had 2 lobby styles for Bruce Lee in H.K :

-Eng and Chinese lettering

-English only lettering

Only Swiss used the crown logo that the ones you sold had.

And here's what looks like a partial set of 6 cards (same size, blue border, attached to board, grommet holes and the small crown logo in the lower right corner) yet these were called Swiss cards, when sold back in Sept of 2012:  

http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/5164979.html

The 6 cards look identical to those 6 in the group of 14 cards that was said to be a COO Hong Kong set, sold on in March of this year:

Bruce, what's the difference between these 2 sets (other than the quantity)?      binoc.gif

Not only the lettering but the Swiss cards also miss the white Golden Harvest logos.

And, Bruce, if both sets are the same style cards, and both, in fact, turn out to be Swiss, then this question could also be thought about:

Had the 2016 LC set been advertised and described as the 2012 set had been (Swiss and not COO Hong Kong cards), would that have affected the bidding as well as the final price achieved? hmmm.gif

Again, yes, there were more cards offered in the 2016 lot, but I'm speaking of those persons that bid because of the cards' presented/advertised origin.  

And would a Hong Kong (COO) set be more rare or valuable than a Swiss set for this film?

I believe a 1st issue H.K Enter Dragon card (white bottom border fea Concorde yin yang logo) was offered for 400$ , sadly it was in crummy shape so I easily passed.....I'd love to own one (or a set) obviously....but not for 100s per card :P

3rd issue :

We will contact the bidder, tell him/her they are Swiss cards, and offer to cancel. They will almost surely agree to, and after, we will delete the result, and re-auction them next time, properly identified.

Had you (or anyone) contacted us while the auctions were running, we could have corrected them then. But better now than never (as is true of many auction sites).

Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016may/partii/ for a preview gallery of ALL of the incredible collection of 328 linenbacked posters, movie and non-movie, U.S. and non-U.S., standard sized and oversized (which runs from April 26th to May 3rd), including the lot numbers, so you can see the exact order in which they will be auctioned!

Note that not only do we provide you with the exact condition grade that will be on the auction, but you can also click on any image and see the "super-sized" version, so that you can really know the exact condition of each item long in advance of the auction, so you can better prepare your bidding strategy.

And don't forget to also look at the 307 linenbacked one-sheets in our preview gallery of those (in Part I) at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016may/parti/

That is a great question for the members here.

Did you ever buy an item (or items) from any auction that was NOT honestly described, and how did they respond when you told them about it?



A Great question, I agree. For all members, buyers and sellers alike, since an accurate description is vital to anything bought or sold.

If you can, please let us know how the buyer of these Swiss Fists of Fury cards (that were described as Hong Kong COO cards) responds, once he/she is informed of what they actually are.  :)

Im a bit confused (tho that's nothing new  ;) )

Last night, I did a quick 2 min search on the EMP database and found that partial set of those Fists of Fury LC, that had been sold back in 2012, and were correctly described and ID'd as Swiss.

I just did another quick search and found another set of 15 Swiss, Fists of Fury LC that were sold in Jan of 2014. But these were also advertised and described as being a Hong Kong COO set. What's the reason for this incorrect description, 2 years later, especially when the ones in 2012 were described properly (and the data and images from that first sale would be available as a reference tool for the EMP research staff).

And to tie in with your question above, how will this other buyer also respond, over 2 years later, when informed and learning that these cards were not what he thought they were, when he was bidding on, and won them?

We contacted the buyer of the set of 14, and he still wanted the set even though they are Swiss.

So we added the following to that record:
"Note that we initially believed that these were Hong Kong lobby cards. However, after the auction closed, we learned that they are Swiss lobby cards, and we have updated the auction. We also contacted the winning bidder about the change, and they have elected to keep the cards."

I will check ALL the other listings tomorrow and contact the buyers of the incorrect ones (however many that may be) and offer then full refunds plus return shipping, just as I do with ALL incorrectly described items. If they send them back, we will cancel the result and re-auction the items properly identified.

Thanks for the kind words!

Do remember that on corrections, we need more than "I believe" or "I think". We just had a guy email us corrections on three posters we had auctioned many times, and we changed EVERY result, and emailed all the buyers, offering refunds, and then one of those buyers gave us pretty definitive proof that the "correction" was incorrect, so we had to re-email everyone and undo all the "corrections".

But I don't mind the massive amount of extra work as long as our database keeps getting more and more accurate!

It is amazing how little is known about the many re-releases of movies all over the world. In our database we are pooling the research of hundreds of dedicated researchers (like yourself) and I know it is far and away the most accurate database anywhere on the Internet.

Let us know what you find out about the above poster.

Remember that movie where 7 gunmen go to a small Mexican village and chase off around 50 bandits?

Well, as admirable as that was, I can tell you that it is a WORLD harder to run 3,000 auctions of unique items every week, and to hold well over one MILLION such auctions (over 1,155,000, at latest count) is, well, simply MAGNIFICENT!

I deeply thank every one of the 33 employees of eMoviePoster.com who make this happen week in and week out, and I know that our 40,000+ customers and our 1,800+ consignors do as well!

Part II of our May Major Auction ends on Tuesday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html

Like Part II, this part solely contains professionally linenbacked posters, but Part I solely contained one-sheets, and THIS Part II contains posters of EVERY kind (movie and non-movie, U.S. and non-U.S., standard sized and oversized).

It contains a LOT of extremely rare and desirable posters (you have to see them to know how many great ones there are), but because they all started at $1 with no reserve and no buyers premiums, there can and will be lots of great buys made!

How great? In Part I, all the one-sheets were linenbacked, usually at a cost of $100 to $150 per poster. Yet 84 of them sold for under $100 (many far lower) and just about every one of those sold for well under the cost of linenbacking alone, so it was like those buyers got the one-sheet for free!

The same situation exists in Tuesday's Part II, but even more so! With a day to go, there are 61 linenbacked posters under $10 each (insane!) and 143 under $30 each.

Now of course a lot of these will get more bids, but some won't and there are sure to be as many great deals in Part II as there were in Part I, but you can't get those "steals" if you aren't bidding, so why not go to the above link right now, and check these all out?

Part II of our May Major Auction ends in just a few hours, beginning at 7 PM CST at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html. This part contains 328 linenbacked posters of EVERY type (movie and non-movie, U.S. and non-U.S., standard sized and oversized, EXCEPT for one-sheets, because those were in Part I)!

Even though this is a "major auction", many of these posters are incredibly "affordable", especially because all are linenbacked and ready to be framed and displayed and we have the most great deals in any part of any major auction we have ever had with hours to go!

Think I am exaggerating? Not at all! Currently there are 33 of these that are just $10 each or under(!), 72 that are just $20 each or under, and 164 that are $50 each and under and the owner of those posters usually paid around $50 to $100 each just for the linenbacking alone! So most of those posters currently are well under the cost of linenbacking alone and you essentially get those posters for free!

And on the 164 of the posters that are over just $50 each, most of those are WELL under where the same or similar posters have auctioned for in the past (when linenbacked), so there are currently great buys at every price level.

But please remember that in our auctions, a LOT of the bidders like to wait near the end of the auctions to place their bids! So don't get a false sense of security just because you have had the high bid for almost all of the seven days an item has been on for, BECAUSE ON BETTER ITEMS, IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR THEM TO DOUBLE OR TRIPLE IN PRICE IN THE CLOSING HOURS.

But also remember that our auctions have "time extended bidding", which means that five minutes must go by without a bid before an auction closes, so you can NEVER have an item snatched away from you in the final seconds (but you have to be watching the item as it closes, to make certain that no one entered a higher bid than yours in the closing minutes).

Best of luck to everyone bidding in this special auction, and remember that this is just Part II closing in HOURS, and that Part III close Thursday!

Part III of our May Major Auction ends Thursday, beginning at 7 PM CST at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html. This part contains 208 great movie paper items of all sorts, a "best of the best" of our "regular" auctions (except it has NO linenbacked posters, because those were in Parts I & II)!

There are really great one-sheets, half-sheets, inserts, window cards, and other sizes, and also lots of great non-U.S. posters from many countries, and I REALLY think you need to look everything over at the above link, especially because there are "only" 208 items.

But I also want to call your attention to five REALLY unusual items that are included, because you might not see them again for many, many years, and I don't want any interested bidders to not be aware of them!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160428/550/8x10_bringing_up_baby_signed_a_WC04436_C.jpg)

Look at this BRINGING UP BABY signed framed 8x10 still at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=4225044. This is an incredible item! The movie features a trained leopard (the "Baby" of the title), and that leopard was played by Nissa, and was trained and owned by Olga Celeste. At some point during the filming of the movie, someone took a picture of the leopard lying on the set, next to a gag poster that read "GREATEST SHOW ON THE LOT See NISSA THE LEOPARD - ADMISSION 25 cents, also HEPBURN & GRANT Admission 10 cents Including tax, and autographs"!

Olga Celeste wanted a great memento of the movie, and she had the director Howard Hawks, plus most of the cast and crew sign this photo (naturally, the top people signed in large bold letters in the top left, and everyone else wrote their name where they could in the bottom half of the photo). Miss Celeste herself wrote "Greetings, Olga" in the lower right of the photo. The photo was nicely matted and framed (likely in 1938), and it was found in Miss Celeste's estate, and it was auctioned at Christie's in 1989 in their "Collectibles Auction Sale #6841", and it was lot #349.

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160428/550/misc_12_affiches_du_cinema_25_signed_a_WC04438_C.jpg)

Look at this 12 Affiches Du Cinema 1979 French art portfolio at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=4225046. It features movie art by Raymond Gid, a legendary illustrator of great French movie posters over many years. This book was a dream of famed French movie poster illustrator Raymond Gid, and he was able to realize it in 1979. The portfolio consists of loose end papers, with two double pages that contained a title page, a page with his signature, and a 2-page spread listing the names of the prints of the posters contained in the portfolio. There is a single folded 2" x 20" "bookmark" that has the number of the specific edition of the portfolio printed at the ends of the bookmark!

There are twelve folded posters contained within the portfolio, each of them measuring 23 1/2" x 31 1/2" (which is 60 x 80 cm). The posters are posters that Monsieur Gid designed during his extraordinary career (some are ones that were used, and others are ones that were not used, and there is a wonderful special tribute poster for Charlie Chaplin)! The films include Vampyr, Les Diaboliques, Le Silence de la mer, Histoires Extraordinaires (The Living Dead), La Fille aux yeux d'or, The Birds, French Can-Can, Un coeur gros comme ca, and Therese Raquin.

Only 40 of these portfolios were created! One could only wish that someone had ever created a similar portfolio of U.S. posters, either by a single artist like this one, or by multiple artists! Note that each of the posters has a printed paper snipe glued to the back, giving the name of the movie and cast and crew credits for that movie. We have seen another example of this portfolio offered for sale for $1,800!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160428/550/misc_ellinwood_theatre_a_WC03854_T.jpg)

Look at this 1950s local theater 15x26 metal display sign at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=4225095. It is from the Ellinwood Theatre in Ellinwood, Kansas. This display contains drugstore counter displays for "Tropic Zone", "The Left Hand of God", "Sudden Fear", and "Rancho Notorious". In addition, the consignor of this metal display sign (who obtained it directly from that theater in the 1950s!) also received five printed unused movie tickets from the theater, and those are included as well (we have photographed those tickets at the bottom of the display sign).

Note that most movie theaters in the 1950s had signs similar to these, but very, very few of them have survived (we have only seen a few). Not only is this one in the best condition of any we have seen, but it even has its original "drugstore counter displays" in place! Note that the display has its original metal easel backing, allowing it to be free standing on a counter

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160428/550/8x10_bela_lugosi_and_boris_karloff_a_BM06707_T.jpg)

Look at this 1932 BELA LUGOSI/BORIS KARLOFF 8x10 still at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=4225051. This is from a press conference that Universal held in 1932, where these two legendary horror film stars were photographed together, perhaps for the very first time! The back of the still has printed information about the front and it calls them "Universal exponents of horrors" and calls them "Bela (Dracula) Lugosi" and "Boris (Frankenstein) Karloff", and says that they "are good friends and friendly rivals", and that Lugosi "will play in Robert Louis Stevenson's The Suicide Club and Karloff in The Old Dark House by J.B. Priestley and The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells".

Of course, the Universal version of "The Suicide Club" was never made, and while Karloff did star in "The Old Dark House", it was newcomer Claude Rains who ended up starring in "The Invisible Man", which did not come to the screen for three more years. Note that our consignor is a major still collector of many many years, and this still was the prize of his collection, and he paid $1,000 to acquire it, and we are sure it would be a great prize for the new owner of this wonderful still!

(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/moviestars/AA160428/550/standee_jaws_2_a_BM06535_T.jpg)

Look at this JAWS 2 8ft x 12ft unassembled standee at http://auctions.emovieposter.com/Bidding.taf?_function=detail&Auction_uid1=4225001. This wonderful "standee" was printed in 4 sections designed to overlap (it was only the paper poster portion, because it would have cost an insane price to ship this fully assembled to theaters).

What the theaters got were the four sections of the poster, with an instruction sheet, which told them to mount the four sections to a 3/8" backing. They then needed to cut out the bottom center area, and then assemble the sections as shown in the diagram, and add "reinforcement joints" and then "attach to easel partitions"! When finished, this would provide the theater with an amazing standee that could be placed at their entrance so that customers would literally enter the mouth of the shark to get in the theater!

We don't know how many theaters ordered this standee, or how many actually assembled it, but this is an incredibly rare unassembled standee, and it is the only one we have ever seen or heard of! The new owner can either leave it as it is, mount it on linen as it is, or actually turn it into the standee it was meant to be by following the instruction sheet! In each case, that new owner will have an amazing poster, which will surely be a cornerstone of any "Jaws" collection!

The above five items are just a handful of the incredible rarities contained in this very special auction, so PLEASE take a few minutes to look over all 208 items in this auction at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html. If you wait too long (they close Thursday) then you will miss out!

The final Part III of our May Major Auction ends in HOURS today (Thursday), beginning at 7 PM CST at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html. This part contains 208 great movie paper items of all sorts, a "best of the best" of our "regular" auctions (except it has NO linenbacked posters, because those were in Parts I & II)!

But please remember that in our major auctions, a LOT of the bidders like to wait near the very end of the auctions to place their bids! So don't get a false sense of security just because you have had the high bid for almost all of the seven days an item has been on for, BECAUSE ON BETTER ITEMS, IT IS NOT UNUSUAL FOR THEM TO DOUBLE OR TRIPLE IN PRICE IN THE CLOSING HOURS.

Our current 999 campaign books, exhibitor magazines, pressbooks and books (hardcover, softcover, and trade paperback) are closing Sunday (two days from now) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html!

Our three-part May Major Auction just wrapped up on Thursday, but in some ways this auction closing Sunday is like "May Major Auction Part III 1/2"! What do I mean? The first 62 items closing Sunday are solely campaign books and exhibitor magazines and many of them absolutely ARE "major auction quality" (meaning that they are extremely rare and desirable)! So why were they not in the May Major Auction?

We put them in this separate Sunday auction because they are with lots of pressbooks (which are very similar in some respects) and also with lots of hardcover, softcover, and paperback books (including many great titles) and all these types "combine" in the same packages with campaign books and exhibitor magazines far better than posters do.

So you absolutely need to check this set of auctions out closely, because there are a LOT of great items in it, and if you don't look over them all, you are liable of missing something you have looked for for a long time (and might not find again anytime soon)!

And if you just like making incredible deals (whether to add to your collection, or as a dealer to re-sell), then THIS really is the set of auctions for you. Maybe it is because all our bidders are wiped out by our May Major Auction, but with less than two days to go, fully HALF of these items are at just $1 or $2 (and 71 have no bid), and TWO THIRDS are just $1 to $5. And the one third that is over just $5 is mostly WAY under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past.

HERE IS A CHART OF THE ITEMS IN THIS AUCTION:
(to better help you find the sizes and types that interest you)

6x001 PARAMOUNT 1927-28 French campaign book
6x002-6x004 Canadian campaign book of English WWII films, Japanese campaign books

Our excellent current sets of auctions closing this Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday are all excellent, and in different ways (and I feel that you will surely agree, once you look over what is in them)!

First, our Sunday auctions (which close in less than a day at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html) are in some ways like "May Major Auction Part III 1/2"! What do I mean? The first 62 items closing Sunday are solely campaign books and exhibitor magazines and many of them absolutely ARE "major auction quality" (meaning that they are extremely rare and desirable)! So why were they not in the May Major Auction? We put them in this separate Sunday auction because they are with lots of pressbooks (which are very similar in some respects) and also with lots of hardcover, softcover, and paperback books (including many great titles) and all these types "combine" in the same packages with campaign books and exhibitor magazines far better than posters do.

So you absolutely need to check this set of auctions out closely, because there are a LOT of great items in it, and if you don't look over them all, you are liable of missing something you have looked for for a long time (and might not find again anytime soon)! And if you just like making incredible deals (whether to add to your collection, or as a dealer to re-sell), then THIS really is the set of auctions for you. Maybe it is because all our bidders are wiped out by our May Major Auction (or because Sunday is Mother's Day!), but with way less than a day to go as of this writing, fully ONE THIRD of these items are at just $1, $2 or $3, and JUST UNDER HALF are just $1 to $5. And the half that is over just $5 is mostly WAY under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past.

If you like folded one-sheets, you are sure to love our Tuesday auctions at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html, which have a really first rate selection of 999 folded one-sheets, covering all years and genres, but with a really high concentration of excellent horror/sci-fi titles (Halloween in May?).  If you like one-sheets in the slightest, you will LOVE this set of auctions, and you may have a "problem" in finding too much to interest you!

Like lobbies? The Thursday auctions at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html have 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets (6,513 cards in all!). Over half of these sets are from the 1950s and earlier, and around one quarter are from cowboy movies, around one fifth from crime movies, plus much, much more! You may be able to get entire sets for little more than most dealers would ask for the best scene card!

And yet, except for the very best items in each set of auctions, the items in each are getting little love (and currently have very low bids). As stated above, maybe it is because people are wiped out after our May Major Auction, or maybe it is because of Mother's Day on Sunday, but each set of auctions currently has an incredible amount of bargains, with many of the items at $1 or with no bid, and most of the rest are very much under where these same items have auctioned for in the past.

Of course, there will likely be lots more bids placed, but there are almost sure to be lots of great deals (and maybe a lot of real "steals), and if so, I envy the many collectors and dealers who will be making sensational buys (including, hopefully, many of you, our club members)! The current bid prices in each set of auctions (once you get past the highest ones in each) are mostly so low as to border on sheer insanity!

And as soon as the last of our current Sunday auctions close (around 5 PM CST tomorrow on Sunday the 8th), we will be adding 500 lots of 2+ color and black and white stills (each from the same movie, some with a high number of stills), plus 499 presskits (almost all of which contain at least 8 stills), so be sure to check those out as well, once they start!

Our Sunday auctions of campaign books, exhibitor magazines, pressbooks and hardcover, softcover, and paperback books close in just a few hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html (beginning at 3 PM CST). Or view just the many excellent horror/sci-fi items here: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/tag/genre%253Ahorror%255C%252Fsci-fi/15.html

You may THINK you don't collect these sizes and just "skip" this set of auctions, but if do so, you will likely regret it, because these auctions contain a LOT of wonderful rarities, and many of these items will not come back up for sale or auction for many years. Of special notice are the books, because they range from "movie editions" from the 1910s to 1930s, "bad girl" and film noir paperbacks of the 1940s, coffee table and limited edition books, and much more!

I could go on and on about these, but instead please go to the above link soon and check these all out before they close, because right now there are 444 of these at just $1 to $5 each, and almost EVERY item is a fraction of what dealers would charge on their websites (the ones you can find anywhere else)!

Let me see. If you scroll up in this very thread, you will see I also posted about this very same set of auctions on both Friday and Saturday in addition to this post on Sunday morning a full seven hours before the auctions started to end. I am not sure how much more than this you want.

As to your suggestion of "a sort filter on ending soonest", we have had that in place for around ten years, plus our Search Filters we added around a year ago.

Did you write the above post right after you woke up?  ;)

You might mock, but you did an ad showing different product, that this time made the auction worth a look, I saw and liked those but missed out, I'm sure I'm not the first. Maybe Sunday auctions finish earlier to your last posting. That's my problem I guess being in the wrong time zone!

I see. But we auction 999 items at a time, and I can't run images of all of them, without "breaking the forum". If you see that the types we are auctioning, which are always clearly spelled out in the promo message, are the sort to interest you, PLEASE go to the gallery and glance over the Search Filters at left, and then you can quickly see what there is of interest.

Sunday auctions DO close 4 hours earlier than the Tuesday and Thursday ones, as we have done since they began years ago, and we also mention that difference in every promo we do.

But we will endeavor to do better for you!

I am not really interested in pulps or press books... why would I trawl through 999 of them, especially as I have other interests in life to manage with my time

In the last advert it showed something that did grab my interest and I saw that too late (being in the asleep time zone) as the usual time gap is longer for the week day auctions.

Forget my suggestion increasing the gap for the sunday auction notification then and continue to belittle me for making it!

Our auctions of 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets (6,513 cards in all with a lot of rare 1930s titles!) closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html represents the best lobby card buying opportunity to come along in years (right now, there are over 300 of these sets at $1 or with no bid and over ONE HALF at just $4 or under)!

Since all of these have at least 2 cards, and lots of them are complete sets of 8 or more, this means many are well under just a DOLLAR per card and many are just PENNIES per card. And on all the sets (not just the lowest priced ones), almost ALL of them are FAR under where the same or similar sets have sold for in the past (and in some cases, you will likely be able to buy a complete or incomplete set for little more than what most dealers would charge for the title card or the best scene)!

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping no matter how many of these you get. ALSO, if you are a fan of older lobby cards, know that well over half of these are from the 1950s and earlier (over 20% from the 1940s and earlier!), and many of these older cards offer the absolute best values, even though many of these titles are extremely rare!

Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries. For example, in the case of these lobby card auctions, they include 242 cowboy lobby card sets, and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "cowboy western", which will take you to this link: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/tag/genre%253Acowboy%2520western/14.html and then you will just see those 242 lobby card sets, in our gallery format!

You can do the same thing for the 117 horror/sci-fi card sets, or for the 191 crime sets, or for the 41 lobby card sets that are solely from the 1930s, or for the 20 sets from James Stewart movies, or for the 12 sets from Veronica Lake movies, and on and on! Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

But there is no way you can look through 999 lobby card sets in just a short while, so why not start looking these over soon, and then make sure you give yourself plenty of time to place your bids, so YOU can be getting some the great deals that surely will be made when these close in a few hours?

With respect, the auctions last for a full seven (7) days.  It is not as though you are in the wrong time zone for all hours of all those seven days.

You know the auctions start and end on the same three days every single week, of every single year - set yourself reminders if needs be...!

Simes, the idea of Bruce's posts are to show items to hook you in to look, especially those who haven't been tempted so far. Not sure why I need to say the following  again, maybe you missed that... I'm not interested in looking thru 999 Sunday auctions that have stuff I rarely want like non posters which usually are on Sundays. If an ad goes out showing an image to tempt you but you've just gone to sleep before the ad gets posted and awake to see the ad, but the auction is over, Bruce misses out, the sellers miss out, the buyer miss out. That is the problem... Sunday auctions finish 4 hours earlier thus 4 hours less time to see the auction. If the gap between ad and auction was the same on Sundays as it is for other days then there is enough time to be hooked in and participate. A reasonable suggestion to put forward I would think.

Post by: Simes on May 13, 2016, 06:00:42 AM
Sir, I am not sure I am arguing but there does seem to be the obvious you are missing.

Like the thrice weekly auctions that you are already abundantly aware of, you are also aware (it seems) that the Sunday auction finishes earlier.

Aside from some unlikely hand holding, it would seem to be the responsibility of the bidder to get plugged in to what he may, or may not be interested in - especially when the platform in question runs in such a reliably metronomic and clockwork fashion. 

1. One doesn't have to 'look' through 999 pieces when a search can be effected.
2. Who is to say that Bruce's advert would necessarily include that which you may be interested in?

Apologies if I am missing something...

Post by: 50s on May 13, 2016, 06:39:58 AM
Whoops the forum let me edit my last post and save it without advising your more recent post was made. New forum bug it seems....

Ok, just as well as I like arguing...

You are saying I had plenty of time to look at the 999 auctions and I can easily search to filter down from 999 items on what I am interested in.

Filtering: I collect on the art more than the item type but mainly posters. The auction had magazines and press books. I can't search by filtering on images of sexy ladies with big boobs, so I have to look at all 999 items and with Bruce's white squares this process is not very appealing.

Time to see/ i should know schedules: Like I said I'm rarely interested in non poster stuff and I have a life to live rather than look at uninteresting Sunday auction items like magazines and press books like in this auction. Would you look at an auction of 999 toilet bowls every week if you rarely want to buy one? But what if you see advertised a toilet bowl in that auction that has this awesome target in it to aim at but it was advertised after you went to sleep only to read it in the morning after the auction has finished? If you had the usual time between seeing the ad and auction ending you could have had the joy of win the toilet bowl and post images on the forum for people to go ooh aaah. I hope this analogy makes it clearer.

I'm just suggesting the same time between last ad and auction start for Sunday's like for the other days.

eMoviePoster.com is now seeking consignments to our August Major Auction like this 24-sheet from the 1952 re-release of King Kong (which will be in the auction)!

While many of the items in this special auction will be linenbacked, it will also include a number of non-backed posters of all sorts. But if a poster is unbacked, then we only want ones that are truly rare and truly desirable, ones that rarely come to auction!

The deadline for  submitting items to this special auction is July 5th, but if YOU have items you would like us to consider, you should contact us ASAP, both because we use early consignments in our advertising, and because we take the first example of each item we are consigned.

If you have nothing to consign but want to BUY from this special auction, then return to our website on August 7th when this special auction begins (and every item has no reserve, and all are honestly described and photographed)!

Do you have quality movie posters you would consider selling? The final deadline to consign to our August Major Auction is July 5th!

While many of the items in this special auction will be linenbacked or paperbacked, it will also include a number of non-backed posters of all sorts. But if a poster is unbacked & unrestored, then we only want truly rare and truly desirable ones, and in nice condition, the best of the best!

The FINAL deadline for  submitting items to this special auction is just around the corner, so if YOU have items you would like us to consider, you should contact us ASAP (by sending an email to "phillip AT emovieposter DOT com", and making the obvious substitutions), and we will quickly tell you if they belong!

Don’t want to consign, but want to BUY? Return to our website on August 7th when this special auction begins, (and remember that every item has NO reserve and all are honestly described and photographed)!

Our 777 "special" rolled posters (including "turn of the century" stage play posters and WWI & WWII posters plus much more) at auction close in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html and, if there is not a TON of last minute bidding, this will prove to be one of the greatest buying opportunities for posters like these ever!

How so? With just a few hours to go, there are currently over ONE THIRD of these at $1 or with no bid, and HALF of them at just $1 to $5. And the half that are over just $5 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past, and often by a very wide margin (items that have sold for $50 at just $10, etc).

And the very best posters closing tonight are ultra-rare ones that we have mostly never had before and might not get again EVER! The term "museum quality" is often applied to rare items, but in the case of this auction, there are at least 50 posters that absolutely DO deserve to be hanging in a museum! Just go to the above link and you will quickly see for yourself that what we say is true.

Remember that we are the ONLY major auction with NO "buyers premiums" whatsoever, and on these auctions we only charge $12 U.S. shipping, no matter how many you get (actual cost plus $3 for packaging materials anywhere else). Now PLEASE go to the above link and start looking these over before they are going, going, GONE!

IMPORTANT! We had originally planned for this August Major Auction to be held in four parts, but we decided that it made more sense to have three parts (so people would not have to return to their computers four different times!), so the first part now begins on Tuesday, August 9th at around 9 PM CST (so if you go to your computer before that time, you will not find the first part).

Part I of our August Major Auction (283 linenbacked one-sheets) closes on Tuesday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html, and with a day and a half to go, there are LOTS of incredible buys on quality posters (many are currently under the cost of linenbacking alone!).

Think I'm exaggerating? There are 84 linenbacked one-sheets in Part I that are under just $50 each, and 133 that are under just $80 each, and if almost every case, the owner of those one-sheets paid around $100 to $150 each just for the linenbacking, so those posters currently are well under the cost of linenbacking alone! And it is not just the least expensive items that are at bargain prices.

Looking over all of the items in all three parts, I see lots and lots of items that are either somewhat under or far under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past. Of course, many will get more bids before the auctions close, but this may well be a chance to get high quality items at well under retail prices, and that hardly ever happens.

Please don't complain to us after the auctions close saying "If I had known that THIS poster could go for this low of a price, I would surely have bid", because you have been warned that this may come to pass!

As of right now (until Tuesday at around 7 PM CST, when Part I starts to end), you can view ALL of the items from Parts I, II and III combined in a single gallery at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/all.html. Or, if you want to just focus on the Part I items (because those close first) then you can view just those at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html.

So why not go right now to PART I at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html, PART II at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, and PART III at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html, or to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/all.html (for all of the items together in one gallery)  and look at the many bargains and joke low prices in this August Major Auction?

Remember that we have NO reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images of every item, and we stand behind everthing we auction, with NO "Buyer Beware" and a lifetime guarantee on all we auction, so you can bid and buy with confidence (as our 40,000+ buyers have been doing for the past 26 years, during which time we have held 1,200,000 auctions)!

Part II of eMoviePoster.com's incredible three part August Major Auction ends in HOURS (beginning at 7 PM CST) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

This is a "best of the best" of our "regular" auctions, containing great backed and unbacked posters of EVERY kind (except for linen one-sheets, which closed in Part I).

You'll find posters from every decade, ranging from an incredible 1877 stage play poster for the very first version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde to an advance Spanish poster for 2015's The Force Awakens!

You'll find posters of every size, ranging from the only known 24 sheet to the 1952 re-release of King Kong down to a mini-window card to 1968's 2001: A Space Oddysey!

You'll find LOTS and lots of ultra-rarities, including ALL of the almost never-offered first release Mad Max Australian posters, the rejected Saul Bass Schindler's list one-sheet, and so many others!

You'll find GREAT posters from the most loved titles, including Dirty Harry, Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Bullitt, Vertigo, Swing Time and so many others!

You'll find GREAT horror/sci-fi posters from titles like Godzilla, Attack of the 50 Ft Woman, It Came From Outer Space, Invasion of the Saucer Men, The Man From Planet X and so many others!

Like James Bond? You'll find NINE great James Bond posters at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/tag/star%253AJames%2520Bond/sort/4/14.html, including a Dr No six-sheet and two British Quads!

Like Alfred Hitchcock? You'll find FOURTEEN great Alfred Hitchcock posters at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/tag/star%253AAlfred%2520Hitchcock/14.html!

Like non-movie posters of all sorts? You'll find LOTS of them in this auction, including TWELVE extremely rare war posters at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/tag/xtype%253Awar%2520poster/14.html

The above is just a brief overview of the HUGE number of highly desirable items closing in hours. I could go on and on describing them, but I would so much rather you simply go to the above link and start viewing them for yourself!

No matter what you collect, you are sure to find items of interest you would love to have in your collection (your biggest problem will likely be narrowing down a long list of items you want!).

Remenber that we have NO reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images of every item.

Most important of all, we stand behind everything we auction, with NO "Buyer Beware" and a lifetime guarantee on all we auction, so you can bid and buy with confidence.

All of our 40,000+ past buyers from our 1,200,000 completed auctions over the past 26 years (and over 70 million dollars in sales) KNOW that we always do exactly what we say we will, and YOU will too, from the moment you place your first winning bid!

Part III, the all-animation section of our August Major Auction closes in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html starting at 3 PM CST (NOT 7 PM, like our Tuesday and Thursday items).

Buying from this special auction gives you an incredibly rare opportunity to obtain some of the finest cartoon animation movie paper we have ever seen, and all of them will have new owners when these auctions close, because all start at $1 with no reserve.

I want you to RIGHT NOW go to the above link and view all these items for yourself (posters, pressbooks, stills, lobby cards, stills and more), because seeing them will "sell" them far better than anything I can write here!

But I DO need to make special mention of the Snow White style B one-sheet, which is one of the very few surviving completely unrestored examples and is in a class by itself!

Please remember that we have "time extended" bidding where 5 minutes must go by without a bid for an auction to end, so you can NEVER have an item "snatched away" from you in the final seconds, as happens so often on eBay and some other auction sites.

Remenber too, that we have NO reserves or buyers premiums, and we DO have completely honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images of every item.

Most important of all, we stand behind everything we auction, with NO "Buyer Beware" and a lifetime guarantee on all we auction, so you can bid and buy with confidence.

All of our 40,000+ past buyers from our 1,200,000 completed auctions over the past 26 years (and over 70 million dollars in sales) KNOW that we always do exactly what we say we will, and YOU will too, from the moment you place your first winning bid!

Our August Major Auction concluded on Sunday with total sales of $311,660, far above our expectations. Every item REALLY sold to real buyers, some at bargain prices and some at world record prices!

You might think we would now "take a breather", but instead we are already hard at work on our 17th Annual Halloween Auction, which we are determined to make our very best ever!

Unlike our other Major Auctions, in this one we take items of every kind, including posters from every country and of every size, lobby cards, stills and pressbooks.

The only common denominator is that they all have to be horror or sci-fi related, and that they must be in pretty nice condition, especially important if they are less expensive items.

Why consign to us rather than to any other auction? Because we charge less than ANY other major auction, at every price level (and if anyone tries to tell you otherwise, they are not telling you the truth!), and because we get higher prices overall than any other auction, when you compare “apples to apples and oranges to oranges”.

We treat ALL our consignors (and all our bidders) the way you want to be treated, with TRUE customer service every step of the way, and we have 25 years of experience (and over 40,000 past buyers of movie paper, and 1,865 past consignors) to prove it!

We have averaged over five million dollars of sales the past three years (and every sale was a REAL sale, to a real bidder)! We are also the ONLY auction company that will auction EVERYTHING in your collection, not just the best items.

Whether you have items like a 1953 “The Thing From Another World” one-sheet or a 1979 “Alien” teaser one-sheet (both of which will be in the 17th Annual Halloween Auction) or whether you have lots of inexpensive posters, WE are the auction for you!

It may seem early to be thinking about Halloween, but we get offered lots and lots of items every year, and we always auction the first example of each item we receive, so you have a lot of incentive to consign NOW, rather than later. But if you want to wait, the final deadline to consign is September 30th!

We have no “fine print” in our consignment terms, and we have only happy consignors, because we say what we will do, and we always do what we say we will. Contact us today if you have items to consign!

Our current Tuesday auctions of 999 non-U.S. posters from 24 different countries (which close in just a few HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html) contain a massive amount of current bid prices that are so low as to be absolute "steals"!

If you have already discovered how superior non-U.S. posters often can be to their U.S. counterparts, then you will LOVE this set of auctions, and if you HAVEN'T yet discovered these posters, then now is a great time to start, because so MANY of them are VERY affordable! Think I am exaggerating?

An astonishing 377 of these non-U.S. posters are at $1 with seven hours to go, as of this writing (115 have no bid at all, so $1 can take those!), and HALF of them are at $1 to $3, and the half that are over just $3 are mostly WAY under where any dealer would price them (and remember that OUR "$1" is really $1, and not "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site).

Many of the posters currently at $1 to $3 would be $20, $30 or more on just about any dealers website, but right now may get them for a tiny fraction of that amount (but only if you are bidding, of course).

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

Maybe some of our regular bidders are still "wiped out" from our just-concluded August Major Auction, or maybe they are traveling, or maybe they are occupied in other ways, but whatever the reason for the current chance for incredible deals, shouldn't YOU be taking advantage of this great opportunity?

Why not start looking over these 999 non-U.S. posters right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that WON'T cost you an arm and a leg, but WILL give you many years of viewing pleasure?

NOW IS THE TIME TO CONSIGN TO OUR 17TH ANNUAL HALLOWEEN AUCTION!

This auction runs from 10/18 to 10/30, & it has posters, lobby cards and stills (including all of the great lobbies shown here)! If you have horror/sci-fi items to consign, contact us today. Let’s make this better than any of our 16 previous auctions!

Our 999 "special" rolled posters (including "turn of the century" stage play posters and WWI & WWII posters plus much more) at auction close in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html and, if there is not a TON of last minute bidding, this will prove to be one of the greatest buying opportunities for posters like these ever!

How so? With just a few hours to go, there are currently 358 of these at $1 or with no bid, and HALF of them at just $1 to $4. And the over half that are over just $4 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past, and often by a very wide margin (items that have sold for $50 at just $10, etc).

And the very best posters closing tonight are ultra-rare ones that we have mostly never had before and might not get again EVER! The term "museum quality" is often applied to rare items, but in the case of this auction, there are at least 50 posters that absolutely DO deserve to be hanging in a museum! Just go to the above link and you will quickly see for yourself that what we say is true. YOU WILL LIKELY WONDER WHY WE DIDN'T INCLUDE A LOT OF THESE IN OUR JUST CONCLUDED MAJOR AUCTION!

In addition, we have a ton of "fun" posters of every imaginable kind (there truly IS "something for everyone"), and an awful lot of those will almost surely end up selling for just a few dollars each! At those prices, you can simply tack them to your wall (or use scotch tape, just as you did in college), and then, when you are done enjoying them, you can simply tear them down and throw them away! There is no less expensive way to have really cool fun images on your walls!

Even if you THINK that you aren't interested in posters like these, you really should go to the above link and check them out, because you will surely like just "window shopping" (and if you can't resist bidding, you can likely buy a handful of posters for just $20 or less, and these days, $20 doesn't buy much of anything, but in this set of auctions, you might get an entire room full of posters for that amount!).

Remember that we are the ONLY major auction with NO "buyers premiums" whatsoever, and on these auctions we only charge $12 U.S. shipping, no matter how many you get (actual cost plus $3 for packaging materials anywhere else). Now PLEASE go to the above link and start looking these over before they are going, going, GONE!

I know you are surely very busy, so I DON'T want to waste your valuable time using a lot of words to tell you about our 999 folded one-sheets which close in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html

So I won't tell you that a whopping 298 of these posters are at just $1 with 13 hours to go until they start closing, and that HALF are just $1 to $3 (as of this writing), or that we have no "buyers premiums", so "$1" is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" as seen on another auction site.

I also won't tell you that you pay just $12 shipping in the U.S., whether you buy one of these one-sheets or 100 of them!

I also won't tell you that in addition to having a lot of extremely affordable posters, this set of auctions also has a LOT of posters which dealers ask $100 or more for, but which are currently at a far lower bid price (and WILL sell, because THESE auctions TRULY have no reserves at all)!

In addition to having HALF at just $1 to $3, the half that are over just $3 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past!

Why won't I tell you this? Because I instead want you to use your valuable time going through these 999 posters, because you will surely find a LOT of them that you would LOVE to add to your collection!

But you can't get these incredible deals if you aren't bidding, and it takes a while to look over 999 posters covering all years and genres, so why not visit the above link now (or very soon), because in just a few hours these posters will be going, going, GONE!

If you have ANY interest in vintage lobby cards, then you are going to LOVE our current auctions of 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets (5,943 cards in all) closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, because they represent a really great lobby card buying opportunity!

Think I am exaggerating? Think again, because as of this writing, with just hours to go, there are 275 of these sets at $1 or with no bid and over ONE HALF at just $1 to $5! Since all of these have at least 2 cards, and OVER half of them are complete sets of 8 or more, this means many are well under just a DOLLAR per card and many are just PENNIES per card.

And on all the sets (not just the lowest priced ones), almost ALL of them are FAR under where the same or similar sets have sold for in the past (and in some cases, you will likely be able to buy a complete or incomplete set for little more than what most dealers would charge for the title card or one of the better scenes)!

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping no matter how many of these you get, even if you get 100 sets! If you focus on the least expensive cards, you may be able to buy a giant box of hundreds of cards, and have it cost just $100 or so, INCLUDING U.S. shipping!

If you are a fan of older lobby cards, know that well over half of these are from the 1950s and earlier, and many of these older cards offer the absolute best values, even though many of these titles are extremely rare!

Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries.

For example, in the case of these lobby card auctions, they include 106 horror/sci-fi sets (including some excellent titles), and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "horror/sci-fi", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "cowboy western", "crime", "Walt Disney", "John Wayne", "Steve McQueen", or for the 68 lobby card sets that are solely from the 1930s, and on and on!

Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

But there is no way you can look through 999 lobby card sets in just a short while, so why not start looking these over soon, and then make sure you give yourself plenty of time to place your bids, so YOU can be getting some the great deals that surely will be made when these close in a few hours?

We have averaged over five million dollars of sales the past three years (and every sale was a REAL sale, to a real bidder, and hardly any auctions anywhere can say that)!

We are also the ONLY auction company that will auction EVERYTHING in your collection, not just the best items. Whether you have items like a 1927 first release German lobby card from Metropolis or a never before seen Cinerama British quad from 2001 (both of which will be in this auction!) or whether you have lots of inexpensive posters, WE are the auction for you!

NOW is the time to consign your horror/sci-fi movie paper to this very special auction (the final deadline to consign is September 16th)! We have no “fine print” in our consignment terms, and we have only happy consignors, because we always say exactly what we will do, and we always do exactly what we say we will.

With our great consignors cooperation, we can make this our very best Halloween auction ever!

Our current auctions of 999 programs (599 German, 304 Austrian, and 96 East German including many wonderful ones!) closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html!

SOMETIMES IN A SET OF AUCTIONS LIKE THESE, THERE ARE INCREDIBLE BUYS! What do we mean? Because we are only auctioning programs from three countries, many collectors will completely "skip" this set of auctions, and they might well miss items that they would have enjoyed owning.

In the same way, dealers might skip this auction, and miss out on items selling for super low prices. So it is absolutely in your best interest to look over ALL of these, because there will almost surely be many great buys (and whether you are buying for your collection or for resale, everyone likes to make great buys!).

If you wanted to get first release posters from these same titles, you would be talking thousands of dollars in lots and lots of cases. But on many of these, you may be able to get a cool first release program for a tiny fraction of those amounts, sometimes for just a few dollars, which is really hard to believe.

As of this writing, with around 8 hours to go until they start closing, there are HALF of these at $1 or with no bid, and 3/4 at $1 to $5, so great buys almost surely WILL be made on these).

But you can't get those great buys if you aren't bidding, so why not go to the above link now (or very soon) and start looking these over, because it takes a while to look over 999 auctions?

We REALLY outdid ourselves with our current Tuesday auctions (which close in just a few HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html) because they not only have a really wonderful selection of 999 non-U.S. posters from 34 different countries, but there are also a massive amount of current bid prices that are so low as to be absolute "steals"!

First, when you look over the highest priced posters closing in hours, you will immediately see many of them that you likely have never seen before, many with great completely different images!

If you have already discovered how superior non-U.S. posters often can be to their U.S. counterparts, then you will LOVE this set of auctions, and if you HAVEN'T yet discovered these posters, then now is a great time to start, because so MANY of them are VERY affordable! Think I am exaggerating?

An astonishing 404 of these non-U.S. posters are at $1 with seven hours to go, as of this writing (187 have no bid at all, so $1 can take those!), and HALF of them are at $1 to $3, and the half that are over just $3 are mostly WAY under where any dealer would price them (and remember that OUR "$1" is really $1, and not "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site).

Many of the posters currently at $1 to $3 would be $20, $30 or more on just about any dealers website, and many of those currently at $10 to $20 would easily be $50 to $100, but right now may get them for a tiny fraction of that amount (but only if you are bidding, of course).

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

THE ONLY EXPLANATION I CAN SEE FOR THE SHOCKINGLY LOW CURRENT PRICES IS THAT MANY BIDDERS WERE AWAY FOR THE U.S. LABOR DAY HOLIDAY, but if so, then why not start looking over these 999 non-U.S. posters right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that WON'T cost you an arm and a leg, but WILL give you many years of viewing pleasure?

Got some time to look at some auctions that are filled with incredible bargains? We have 490 bulk lots containing 11,223 items in all (lots of one-sheets, stills, non-U.S. posters, plus much more!) that end this Sunday afternoon at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions).

This surely represents a great opportunity to get fantastic deals on all types of movie paper! SOMETHING ESPECIALLY NICE IN THIS MONTH'S BULK LOTS IS THAT WE HAVE SOME REALLY NICE GROUPS OF ITEMS THAT YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT TO SEE IN A "BULK LOT AUCTION" (one quick look at the bulk lots will show you what we mean)!

As of right now, with a day and a half to go, 214 of these lots are at just one dollar, and 280 are just $1 to $5 each, and the rest are mostly currently at FAR under low wholesale prices (in fact, almost all of them are at just pennies per item!). Whether you would be buying these to add to your collection at joke low prices, or whether you would be buying to re-sell online, or through a store or collectible shows, you will likely never get a chance to get greater bargains!

Unlike many sellers of bulk lots, we at eMoviePoster.com always picture every single item in every bulk lot, so you always know exactly what you will be receiving, and just how great a deal each bulk lot is at the price you pay! If YOU want to take advantage of these unbelievably low-priced bulk lots, then you need to visit the above link well before they begin closing on Sunday at 3 PM CST, because it takes a while to look at over 11,000+ items in 490 lots!

Like buying movie posters for next to nothing? 189 of our 999 folded one-sheets ending in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html are at $1 and HALF of them are at $1 to $4!

This group of 999 one-sheets contains a LOT of extreme rarities (from all years and genres), but almost all are extremely affordable (almost all of the half that are over just $4 are well under where the same or similar posters have auctioned for in the past, and only a tiny number are over $100, so almost all are well within the reach of just about every collector).

Remember that we have no "buyers premiums", so "$1" is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" as seen on another auction site.

Best of all, you pay just $12 shipping in the U.S., whether you buy one of these one-sheets or 100 of them!

I want you to now (or very soon) look through all these 999 posters (at the above gallery link), because you will surely find a LOT of them that you would LOVE to add to your collection, and you can't wait to look until right before the auctions end tonight, because it takes a while to look over 999 posters!

Like buying movie posters for next to nothing? You will be likely be astounded by the number of incredible buys in our auctions of 999 large Italian, French, and other non-U.S. posters and oversized lobby cards closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

Just how great are the deals? With hours to go there, not only are there 102 items with no bid at all (so a $1 bid may well win those!), but there are also 494 at just $1, and 640 of the items at just $1 to $5, and almost all of the remaining 359 that are over just $5 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past!

And remember that in OUR auctions, when we say "$1", we don't mean "$1, plus a $19 buyers premium", but a REAL $1! In a world where prices on just about everything keeps rising and rising, isn't it nice to know that you can still purchase a great guaranteed authentic vintage movie poster from a favorite film (or with a wonderful image) for such bargain prices?

And even the best of these are mostly very affordable (there are only a handful of posters over $100, and, as noted above, nearly HALF are still at just $1) but you can't get those great deals unless you are bidding, and it takes a while to look over this many posters and lobby cards, so why not visit the above link right now, before these are going, going, GONE?

Hey movie poster collectors! This is your very last chance to consign to our 17th Annual Halloween Auction. We know that lots of people end up waiting for the last minute to consign, and this IS that "last minute"!

If you DON'T get your Halloween consignments on the way to us no later than September 22nd (one week from today), then you will have to wait an entire year for our 18th auction (unless you have a Frankenstein one-sheet, of course, or something similar)!

We already have a wonderful line-up, and we charge the lowest commissions of ANY major auction, and we have auctioned more movie posters for more money than anyone in the world. Why consign anywhere else when you can consign to the best auction?

See our image below for just a few of the great items in this auction (and visit this page, http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign_major, to preview many other great items).

While we of course prefer great items, we will still accept any horror/sci-fi consignments, as long as they are standard sizes (except stills, where we only want great ones), and as long as they have a realistic minimum retail value of $20 each.

Don't delay. Consign today! This is going to be a wonderful auction.

We have a truly wonderful selection of 394 deluxe "oversized" stills (mostly 11x14, or close to that) at auction ending this Sunday (in two days) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html (starting at 3 PM CST, not 7 PM CST like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions).

Did you know that in addition to 8x10 stills, studios also made deluxe "oversized" stills as well? 'Tis true! 11x14 stills (or sizes close to that) were made for most movies along with 8" x 10" stills, but very few of these "oversized" stills survive.

While most theaters from the 1920s on received 8x10 stills, few received 11x14 stills, which were often printed on a higher quality paper stock than the 8x10s.

They are often the work of famous studio photographers (such as Clarence Sinclair Bull, Ruth Harriet Louise, and many others), who would often be credited on the still. Some speculate that these larger higher quality stills were mostly only sent to major theaters, which would help account for their far greater rarity!

We did not list these 394 oversized stills with any other items with them, because we feel these are so special that they deserve to be listed "on their own"!  You will love looking at these, even if it is solely to "window shop"!

Otherwise, just go to our site on October 18th when the Part I items are added, and return on October 20th and 23rd when the Part II and III items are added. And then be sure to come to our site on October 25th, 27th, and 30th when each of the parts end, because most of the bidding occurs at the end!

I had a list of 20 or so that I was going for... ended up with around 5. I thought for sure that with the number of quality offerings, some of the mid to lower ranged paper could be gotten for a steal, but they all stayed pretty high.

I did get the one I wanted, if I could've only won one, which was a plus.

Our great 17th Annual Halloween Auction hasn't even started yet (it starts on the 18th), but we are already hard at work assembling the items in our December Major Auction!

There are two benefits to consigning early to our December Major Auction. The first is that we always use the first example of each item consigned to us, so if yours gets here first, it is in. The second is that we use the early consignments in our pre-auction publicity, which gets them lots more exposure. Why not consign today?

We have auctioned more movie paper for more money than anyone in the world! Why? Because we charge lower fees at EVERY price level, and get higher prices overall (when you compare like items)!

Maybe it is different for Major Auctions, but for non major you mentioned (some years back) if you had duplicates you always put up for auction the best copy first. This was at a time when people had some concern they bid on an average copy possibly only to find a better copy a short while later

With the Major Auctions, we go with the first one to arrive. What I think you are referring to is the frequent case where one person sends multiple examples of the same item at one time. We go through them and order them from best condition to least condition, and then auction them in that order.  That way, the person who buys the first one gets the best example.

But of course there are also many times where we auction a lesser condition poster and someone else immediately sends another one in much better condition.

It includes all the lot numbers, so you can see them in the exact order in which they will be auctioned! Note that not only do we provide you with the exact condition grade that will be on the auction, but you can also click on any image and see the "super-sized" version, so that you can really know the exact condition of each item long in advance of the auction, so you can better prepare your bidding strategy.

One question though.  Why the inclusion of the Man with the Golden Gun cards?  Was this due to the tenuous link of Christopher Lee, the horror master?  Or the horror that was Britt Ekland's casting and acting?

I don't make a big deal out of it when people send pretty marginally Halloweeny items like those. I would think they might well have done better in the regular auction.

It is kind of the other way around. We usually get 5 to 10 consignments per DAY, totaling thousands of items per week. I can't go through every single item looking for items for the Halloween auction, so unless they say they are sending for that auction it goes into the regular auction (although we try to catch the obviously much better items).

What goes in the Halloween auction is the items that people specifically send for it. Most often people restrict what they send to items that clearly make sense. But sometimes someone who sent ten items will include one that is only very marginally Halloween related, and sometimes we take it out, but sometimes we leave it in. We don't consider it a big deal either way.

I think you would be amazed to see just how difficult it is to run 3,000 unique auctions a week!

I wouldn't be amazed.  I am a project manager by trade, sort of used to organising things and people but this is with an end in sight.

Yours is an on-going operations exercise and every now and then, I look at the sort of steps I think would be involved to manage your enterprise, plus then the Pay and Hold stuff, payments back and forth, and then my head hurts and I give up.  I think the processes you must have in place must really be rigorously written and thoroughly upheld. 

I think it is all really quite amazing.  And difficult.

I want to tell you about a great buying opportunity on our auctions closing today, where you can practically "steal" many posters, because we have 539 rolled one-sheets and 460 "special" rolled posters (movie & non-movie) closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, and the current bid prices on many are so low that you will have trouble believing them!

Do YOU have an empty space on your walls just crying out to be filled by some fun poster that you simply tack up to the wall (just like you did in college or in your first apartment)? Or are you thinking that it would be great to start collect something that is "affordable" and yet offers tons of viewing pleasure, but that posters cost too much these days to do that, and that even a cheap repro has to cost $9.99 or more?

Well think again, because 196 of these one-sheets and "special" posters currently have NO BID at all with hours to go (so $1 can take those), and a WHOPPING 475 of them are still at just $1 each or have no bid, and TWO THIRDS are at just $1 to $4! And our $1 is REALLY "$1", and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", as seen in some other auctions.

What are you waiting for? A gold-plated invitation? Go to the above link NOW and find some great posters for your walls that will cost you next-to-nothing, and will give you endless viewing pleasure!

You might be wondering why are we auctioning BOTH one-sheets AND "special" posters together. It is because, in the past, we have auctioned solely "newer" unfolded one-sheets and newer rolled "special" posters in separate auctions. But we find that many of the same people buy both of these types of posters, and by offering them in the same set of auctions, they can have a wider variety of items to choose from, and they can combine both kinds of purchases in a single tube, saving a LOT on shipping.

Note that while we WILL continue to auction "older" special posters (travel, war, magic, etc), it will ONLY be in a separate auction of JUST special posters (and by "older", we mean those from the 1960s and before). This is because the type of people who buy those older special posters are likely not as interested in the "newer" unfolded one-sheets!

Finally, note that the roughly half of this auction that contains special posters are some of the absolute most "fun" auctions we do! There is a wonderful variety of all sorts of "odd" posters (some connected to movies, but not standard movie posters, and many that have no connection to movies at all). There are also lots of repro commercial posters of great movie titles, and you can likely buy one from a classic title for very little money!

In all, there are so many unusual types of posters that we HIGHLY recommend that all of you make an effort to look at all of these posters in our gallery format (and you are sure to enjoy doing so, even if you end up not buying any, and solely "window shop")!

I want YOU to stop whatever you are doing right now and check out all we have going on at eMoviePoster.com, because "the joint is jumping" in so many great ways!

First, we have a truly wonderful selection of 999 vintage single 8" x 10" stills (a great selection covering all years, stars, and genres!) ending in a day, on SUNDAY AFTERNOON beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html, and whether or not you have yet discovered the wonderful hobby of collecting vintage stills, I am certain you will be very interested in this auction!

What makes this auction so special? The auction includes a large number of wonderful portraits, including lots from the top stars of the 1920s to 1960s, and many of stars that you almost never see stills on, like Charlie Chaplin, Boris Karloff, Leslie Howard, and many more! There are some really wonderful stills from horror movies, plus there are many images from some of the best remembered movies (like Casablanca!), and also lots of great images from 1960s and later movies that are rightly regarded as classics (like The Great Escape)!

Second,  on Tuesday we have 999 folded one-sheets closing at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/13.html and they contain our usual great assortment of one-sheets from all years and genres. This is the single most collected size, and we are the ONLY major auction that has HONEST $1, no reserve auctions!

Third, on Thursday we have 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets closing at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/14.html and there are a lot of "better" titles included. You may be able to buy ENTIRE sets for little more than most dealers would charge for a single scene card from that same title!

Fourth, you can now view a complete Preview Gallery of both Parts I and II of our 17th Annual Halloween Auction! Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016halloween/parti/ to see all of the 254 great horror/sci-fi lobby cards (including a few complete and incomplete sets) in Part I that will be auctioned 10/18 to 10/25 and also go to http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016halloween/partii/ to see all of the 505 rolled and folded posters of all kinds in Part II that will be auctioned 10/20 to 10/27!

Do YOU also have "better" movie paper items you have considered selling? NOW is the time to consign to our December Major Auction that starts 11/27 (the deadline to consign is October 28th). Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=consign_major#december for full details!

There has NEVER been a better time to be a movie paper collector! Visit the above links and start feasting your eyes on all that is offered. But we have to warn you that you may get "sensory" overload from viewing so much great material at once, and you may get a headache from having to decide which items you most want and want to bid on!

You guys are really behind the times! Several years back we created a "Want List" feature that does exactly what you want.

Over 3,000 of our users have saved Want Lists, and since you can have dozens of them if you want, there are nearly 50,000 that have been created.

I am off today, but I will post instructions on how to create them on Monday. It is super easy, and you will never again "miss" something you want.

I could go on and on about how incredible our selection of 999 vintage single 8" x 10" stills is, or how you only have a few more hours until they start to end, beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html, BUT I WON'T!

Why? Because you REALLY need to see these for yourself, to get an idea of how wonderful they are, and you WILL need some time to look over this many great stills, so why not start right now by clicking on the above link?

Actually, we WERE consigned a second "Joan Blondell in the bath" along with the above one, and it will be in the next auction. After that, there likely won't be another one for a LONG time.

One thing we can all agree on this during this highly divisive political season is that what this world needs is a good one dollar one-sheet (NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site). Well, we have them in our 999 folded one-sheet auctions at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html and they start to close in just a few hours!

Think I am exaggerating? We have 260 one dollar one-sheets (and 593 at just $1 to $5). And the 406 that are over just $5 (which includes some really nice ones!) are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past. At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin).

But you could buy a bunch and start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our recently-added "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! So why not start looking over these 999 folded one-sheets right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that may well cost you less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and will surely give you many years of viewing pleasure?

Part I of our 17th Annual Halloween Auction is now "live" at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html and the bidding has just begun on all of the 254 great horror/sci-fi lobby cards. There has likely never been so many great cards offered for sale at one time!

You can also view complete Preview Galleries of both Parts II and III as well! Go to http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016halloween/partii/ to see all of the 505 rolled and folded posters of all kinds in Part II that will be auctioned 10/20 to 10/27 and also go to http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016halloween/partiii/ to see all of the 326 linenbacked and oversized posters, posters that ship in "oversized" flat packages, pressbooks, incredible stills, and more that will be auctioned 10/23 to 10/30!

You know how EVERY major auction (except eMoviePoster.com!) hits you with massive "buyers premiums" after every purchase? Well, not only don't we have ANY buyers premiums, but in this special Halloween auction we also give everyone who buys just five items (from all three parts combined) a FREE giant horror/sci-fi refrigerator magnet (go to http://emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016halloween/magnets/20161018_horror_magnets.html for full details)!

There has NEVER been a better time to be a horror/sci-fi movie paper collector! Visit the above links and start feasting your eyes on all that is offered.

If you have ANY interest in vintage lobby cards, then you are going to LOVE our current auctions of 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets (5,756 cards in all) closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, because they represent a really great lobby card buying opportunity!

Think I am exaggerating? Think again, because as of this writing, with just hours to go, there are 299 of these sets at $1 or with no bid and ONE HALF at just $1 to $5! Since all of these have at least 2 cards, and OVER half of them are complete sets of 8 or more, this means many are well under just a DOLLAR per card and many are just PENNIES per card.

And on all the sets (not just the lowest priced ones), almost ALL of them are FAR under where the same or similar sets have sold for in the past (and in some cases, you will likely be able to buy a complete or incomplete set for little more than what most dealers would charge for the title card or one of the better scenes)!

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping no matter how many of these you get, even if you get 100 sets! If you focus on the least expensive cards, you may be able to buy a giant box of hundreds of cards, and have it cost just $100 or so, INCLUDING U.S. shipping!

If you are a fan of older lobby cards, know that well over half of these are from the 1950s and earlier, and many of these older cards offer the absolute best values, even though many of these titles are extremely rare!

Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries.

For example, in the case of these lobby card auctions, they include 139 horror/sci-fi sets (including some excellent titles), and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "horror/sci-fi", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "cowboy western", "crime", "Walt Disney", "John Wayne", "James Bond", or for the 72 lobby card sets that are solely from the 1930s, and on and on!

Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

But there is no way you can look through 999 lobby card sets in just a short while, so why not start looking these over soon, and then make sure you give yourself plenty of time to place your bids, so YOU can be getting some the great deals that surely will be made when these close in a few hours?

Is trying to decide what to bid on in Part I of our our special 17th Annual Halloween Auction which closes in just a few HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html getting you all choked up?

It contains a truly amazing selection of 254 lobby cards (mostly title cards and scenes, with a few complete and incomplete sets, ranging from top 1930s and 1940s titles through top 1950s horror/sci-fi titles).

I certainly hope that you look over all of the cards in this very special auction, and consider purchasing at least a few of them, because there may well be the chance for fantastic bargains. How great are the bargains? Amazingly, with just hours to go on the items in Part I, there are still 51 of them at just $1 to $10 and 96 that are under $20, and there are very few cards that don't show a good image of the monsters!

It is not just the least expensive items that offer incredible values! Many of the items in all of the parts of this special auction are ultra rare, and some may be "one-of-a-kind". Yet even on many of those, the prices are FAR under where I would expect them to be. Now obviously, some or a lot of those will get more bidding before the end, but you can never tell, so certainly you have nothing to lose (except a little of your time) by placing some bids on items at prices you would LOVE to pay!

But you can't do that unless you bid, and it takes a while to go through this many high quality items, so why not go right now to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html (for today's Part I, which closes in just a few hours), or to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html (for Thursday's Part II), or to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html (for Sunday's Part III) and look at the many bargains and joke low prices in this 17th Annual Halloween Auction?

LIke horror/sci-fi posters, but don't want to pay an arm and a leg for them? Then Part II of our special 17th Annual Halloween Auction closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html is perfect for you!

How great are the bargains? Amazingly, with just hours to go on the 505 items in Part II, there are still 102 of them at just $1 to $5, 165 that are $10 or under and 275 that are under $20, so all of these are within the range of every collector, no matter what your budget!

Please remember that in OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums whatsoever, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", which turns many "good deals" into terrible ones. And in our auctions there are NO reserves either, so many items REALLY sell for $1 or just a few dollars (as our 41,000+ past buyers can attest to!).

I certainly hope that you look over all of the items in Part II, and consider purchasing at least a few of them, because there may well be the chance for fantastic bargains. $20 doesn't buy much these days, but in OUR Halloween auction closing in hours, it may buy a handful of fun horror/sci-fi posters!

It is not just the least expensive items that offer incredible values! Many of the top items in today's Part II are ultra rare, and some may be "one-of-a-kind". Yet even on many of those, the prices are FAR under where I would expect them to be. Now obviously, some or a lot of those will get more bidding before they end, but you can never tell, so certainly you have nothing to lose (except a little of your time) by placing some bids on items at prices you would LOVE to pay!

Only Part III of our Halloween auction remains (closing Sunday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html, beginning at 3 PM CST, NOT 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions), but one quick look at these 326 linenbacked and oversized posters, pressbooks, incredible stills, and more will show you we saved many of the best items for last!

I promise you that you will quickly find lots and lots of super rare items, many of which you would likely love to include in your collection! Because there are so many different types of items in this part, you will want to be sure to use the "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries.

For example, in the case of these Halloween auctions, they include 27 horror/sci-fi pressbooks (including some excellent titles), and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "pressbook", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "three-sheet", "Boris Karloff", "signed", "France", "Forty by Sixty", "linen" (for the 79 linenbacked posters of all sizes) or for the 31 items that are solely from the "1930s", and on and on!

Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

What distinguishes OUR major auctions from other major auctions? Only the lack of any reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images! You will find an amazing "supermarket" selection of great horror/sci-fi movie paper from all years, genres, and countries!

I certainly hope that you look over all of these items closing Sunday, and consider purchasing at least a few of them, because there may well be the chance for fantastic bargains. Right now, with two days to go, there are 124 items at just $1 to $5 and it is not just the least expensive items that offer incredible values!

Even on the ones that are currently the highest priced, the prices are FAR under where I would expect them to be. Now obviously, some or a lot of those will get more bidding before they end in two days, but you can never tell, so certainly you have nothing to lose (except a little of your time) by placing some bids on these items at prices you would LOVE to pay!

But you can't do that unless you bid, and it takes a while to go through this many varied items, so why not go right now to http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html and look at the many wonderful items that are being auctioned in this final part of our 17th Annual Halloween Auction?

PLEASE also be sure to look through everything! Because there are so many different types of items in this part (from stills to 24 sheets!), you will want to be sure to use the "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries. For example, in the case of these Halloween auctions, they include 27 horror/sci-fi pressbooks (including some excellent titles), and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "pressbook", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "three-sheet", "Boris Karloff", "signed", "France", "Forty by Sixty", "linen" (for the 79 linenbacked posters of all sizes) or for the 31 items that are solely from the "1930s", and on and on!

Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!). In particular, this auction contains a truly sensational selection of a dozen vintage single stills (including amazing ones from Frankenstein, Freaks, London After Midnight and more), ones that would be the very best in our "regular" auctions of single stills!

While this remarkable auction DOES contain many expensive and ultra-rare items, there are also many for every budget (currently 41 are just $1 to $5, and 75 are $10 or under). And at every price level there are many items that are currently far under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past. If there are going to be great buys, why shouldn't YOU get them? But you will need time to view this many great varied items, so please visit the above link soon!

Note that the above 2001 poster is from when this classic movie premiered in Cinerama at the Casino Theatre in London, England on May 1, 1968 (as part of its Cinerama roadshow engagement). It played at this theater for 47 weeks (from May 1, 1968 to March 25, 1969!). It then played at other English theaters, and new quads were printed that looked similar, but they do not have the printing for this specific premiere theater in the lower right corner. We have seen an example of that later poster at another auction, and it had a snipe over the top tagline that they removed, and put loose with the poster. BUT THIS IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE OF THIS CINERAMA PREMIERE BRITISH QUAD WE HAVE EVER SEEN!

Are you someone who doesn't like to bid on linenbacked one-sheets? Well we have the auction for you!

EVERY single one of the 1,238 one-sheets (1,132 folded one-sheets and 106 unfolded one-sheets) from the Dominique Besson Collection that will be auctioned in our December Major Auction are NOT backed or restored!

Follow the below link to a preview gallery of ALL those one-sheets. Note that these are NOT in the order in which they will be auctioned (they are in alphabetical order, with "number" titles first), and there may be a few of these (the least important) which will not be in the auction, but we wanted to give you this "early" preview of these posters so you could start planning your bidding strategy long in advance of the auction (the auction starts on December 1st).

http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/besson/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/besson/)

 WE HAVE SLIGHTLY CHANGED THE DATES OF THIS AUCTION AND THE FINAL CONSIGNMENT DEADLINE! Thanks to our being consigned the incredible Dominique Besson folded one-sheet collection (all of which will be auctioned in Part I; see our ad below), we have made a slight adjustment to our December Major Auction. It now starts 12/1 and runs through 12/15 (in four parts).

THAT GIVES YOU A FEW MORE DAYS TO CONSIGN YOUR QUALITY MOVIE PAPER TO IT! Email philllip@emovieposter.com to consign today! Any consignments for this special auction must now be on their way to us no later than Friday, November 4th (unless you have something exceptional, and then it could be a little later!).

Included in the December Major Auction is the Dominique Besson folded one-sheet collection (all of which will be auctioned in Part I; see our ad below). Any of you CAN consign one-sheets to be added to that section, as long as we don't have them already (and of course as long as they are better quality desirable posters that rarely are offered at auction).

And of course, we also want every other sort of consignment of movie paper of ALL types (U.S. and non-U.S.), and this major auction will include a special section of "better quality" lobby cards, so it is fine to send those as well, but of course as long as they are better quality desirable lobby cards that rarely are offered at auction.

If you miss consigning to this auction (which may well be our best of the year!), then you will have to wait until next April or May, so don't delay, and consign today!

You might ask yourself "Why are HALF of eMoviePoster.com's 999 folded one-sheets closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html still at just $1, $2 or $3 with hours to go?"

The answer might lie in its taking place right after our Halloween auction, or that people are distracted by the Presidential election, but a far BETTER question to ask yourself is "Why am I not bidding on these super-low priced posters (which include many rarities from all years and genres?"!

Remember that when we say "$1", we really mean "$1" and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site). At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin).

But you could buy a bunch and start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our recently-added "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! So why not start looking over these 999 folded one-sheets right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that may well cost you less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and will surely give you many years of viewing pleasure?

Want to buy at a great auction? Our December Major Auction is one major auction where every item REALLY sells to the highest bidder, because every item REALLY starts at $1 with no reserve (and we DON’T have any buyers premiums either)! You’ll find these great five posters plus over 1,500 others up for auction (in 4 parts, starting 12/1). Best of all, we honestly describe each item (as our buyers know)!

Come to our website when the first part starts on December 1st. It is too late to consign to this auction, but if YOU have movie paper you are willing to consign to future auctions, please go to our website and contact us. We charge the lowest rates at every price level, and we get the highest prices overall (when you compare like items).

You can get lots of BIG posters for TINY prices in our excellent selection of 999 three-sheets, six-sheets, Italian 1 and 2 panels and Argentinean posters that closes in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

Do you think I might be exaggerating about how low the prices are? There are an inconceivable 571 of them at $1 (196 with no bid at all, so $1 can win those!), and 680 at $1 to $5 each. And a very high percentage of the 319 that are over just $5 each are WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past (and they include many very rare and desirable posters, ones that are almost never offered for sale or at auction).

And unlike many auctions, there are no tricks or fine print to these auctions, that turn "steals" into not-so-good deals. First and foremost, there are no massive $19 "minimum buyers premiums" (in fact, there are no buyers premiums at all) so "$1" is really $1.

And all buyers pay the actual cost of shipping your purchases (plus $3 for packing material), but U.S. buyers can wait a total of three weeks before we send all their purchases from that time in as few packages as possible (and non-U.S. buyers can wait a total of six weeks).

If you have never before bought these sizes of posters (or only bought a few in the past), you could NEVER pick a better time to start collecting these sizes more seriously, because so many of these posters are offered at such low, low prices with just hours to go.

But if you plan on placing several bids, be sure to go to the above link soon, because it takes a while to look over this many widely varied posters!

You may be thinking, "Why does eMoviePoster.com have 777 single scene lobby cards closing on SUNDAY at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html when they normally always are on THURSDAY?" but a more important question is "Why are YOU not bidding on these, when HALF of them are at $1 or have no bid?"!

The reason we have this special Sunday lobby card auction (of scene cards only) is that we have been consigned so many cards that we needed to hold this "extra" auction to get somewhat caught up on them! This means you have a golden opportunity to get lots and lots of lobbies at low, low, prices, and how often does that happen?

And unlike many auctions, there are no tricks or fine print to these auctions, that turn "steals" into not-so-good deals. First and foremost, there are no massive $19 "minimum buyers premiums" (in fact, there are no buyers premiums at all) so "$1" is really $1.

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy Sunday, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our recently-added "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping!

So why not start looking over these 777 single scene lobby cards right now, and start finding that perfect lobby card (or cards) to display in your home (and they fit in any store bought 11x14 frame), one that may well cost you less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and will surely give you many years of viewing pleasure?

If you like lobby cards then you will LOVE our 777 single scene lobby cards closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html!

Why? First and foremost because, even though there is a great selection (covering all years and genres) there are still ONE THIRD of them at $1, $2, or $3 (there are no buyers premiums, especially the $19 "minimum buyers premiums", so "$1" is really $1)!

And almost all of the rest of the cards at higher prices are mostly WAY under where the same or similar cards have sold for in the past (and we are the ONLY major auction that shows you supersized images of the front AND back of every card)!

So why not start looking over these 777 single scene lobby cards right now, and start finding that perfect lobby card (or cards) to display in your home (and they fit in any store bought 11x14 frame), but hurry, because in just a few hours they will be going, going, GONE (and all will REALLY sell, because these auctions REALLY start at $1, with no reserves at all)!

There are some collectors who mostly (or only) buy movie posters from their own country, and if you are one of those collectors I say, PLEASE consider also purchasing posters from other countries, because they often have great completely different images from the posters from your country, PLUS so MANY of them are VERY affordable!

Think I am exaggerating? Consider the 999 non-U.S. posters from 31 different countries in our current auctions closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html. There are currently 71 posters with no bid at all (so $1 can take those), 394 at $1 or with no bid, and 541 at just $1 to $5! And we have no "buyers premiums", so "$1" is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium".

Just about any dealer would charge $20, $30 or more for these same posters, and even reproductions of these would surely cost $10 or so! And it is not just the least expensive posters closing in hours that represent the best deals.

The 458 that are over just $5 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past and while many are sure to get more bids, some won't, and there will surely be a LOT of "deals" just as there always are in our honest no reserve auctions, where every item really starts at $1, and really sells to the highest bidder.

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our recently-added "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! But please, if you can't look at these non-U.S. posters right now, then don't put off visiting the above link for too long, because it takes a while to look over this many items, and in just a few hours they will all be going, going, GONE!

I want to tell you about a great buying opportunity on our auctions closing today, where you can practically "steal" many posters, because we have 461 "special" rolled posters (movie & non-movie!) and 538 rolled one-sheets closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, and the current bid prices on many are so low that you will have trouble believing them!

Do YOU have an empty space on your walls just crying out to be filled by some fun poster that you simply tack up to the wall (just like you did in college or in your first apartment)? Or are you thinking that it would be great to start collect something that is "affordable" and yet offers tons of viewing pleasure, but that posters cost too much these days to do that, and that even a cheap repro has to cost $9.99 or more?

Well think again, because 147 of these one-sheets and "special" posters currently have NO BID at all with hours to go (so $1 can take those), and a WHOPPING 404 of them are still at just $1 each or have no bid, and 596 are at just $1 to $5! And our $1 is REALLY "$1", and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", as seen in some other auctions.

What are you waiting for? A gold-plated invitation? Go to the above link NOW and find some great posters for your walls that will cost you next-to-nothing, and will give you endless viewing pleasure!

Note that the roughly half of this auction that contains special posters are some of the absolute most "fun" auctions we do! There is a wonderful variety of all sorts of "odd" posters (some connected to movies, but not standard movie posters, and many that have no connection to movies at all). There are also some repro or commercial posters of great movie titles, and you can likely buy one from a classic title for very little money!

And the rolled one-sheets contains lots of the best titles of the past 30 years! In all, there are so many unusual types of posters that we HIGHLY recommend that all of you make an effort to look at all of these posters in our gallery format at the above link (and you are sure to enjoy doing so, even if you end up not buying any, and solely "window shop")!

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! But please, if you can't look at these really fun posters right now, then don't put off visiting the above link for too long, because it takes a while to look over this many items, and in just a few hours they will all be going, going, GONE!

Title: There WILL be a "Black Friday" for poster people exclusively on eMoviePoster.com
Post by: BruceH on November 16, 2016, 09:56:11 PM
(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/announcements/20161116_fixed_price_updated.jpg?t=1479339701)

For years, as Thanksgiving approaches, movie poster people say to me, "Why isn't there a Black Friday for poster collectors?"

And I have always said, "Yes, wouldn't it be great if someone made this happen?" But after years of waiting and waiting, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and now, FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER, there WILL be a "Black Friday" for poster people, exclusively on eMoviePoster.com!

How will it work? We already have a "Fixed Price" section on our site, which currently has 610 posters in it, all at a set price (we used to have over 1,000 of them, but well over 400 of them have completely sold out, and we started with five or more of each).

On Friday, November 25th, at 9 AM, we will not only SLASH the prices of those 610 remaining items (so you can buy any of them at substantial discounts to where they have sold in the past) but we will ALSO add a whopping 565 new items we have never had before, all of which are "priced to sell"!

This Black Friday sale begins Friday, November 25th  at 9 AM CST and ends at midnight. You can buy as many of the items as you want, and you can buy more than one example of each, but all buying must take place Friday, and we will stop selling them at midnight, and then take them offline until Monday morning (at which time all the items that sold one or more examples will have their prices raised, just as we have always done when our fixed price items sell).

So be sure to go to the Fixed Price section of our site (at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/2.html) on Friday, November 25th when this "Black Friday" sale begins (but remember that the discounted prices won;t be entered until 9:00 AM that day)!

Thanks guys! Anyone who actually collects posters, and who doesn't already have everything (like Thierry!) should find at least some of these irresistible. And of course you can combine everything into one tube or package, and 99% of it qualifies for flat $12 in the U.S. (actual cost everywhere else).

It should be very interesting!

When you buy from any auction (or consign to it), shouldn’t you make sure you are dealing with one that treats its customers 100% honestly, that has TRUE customer service, and which treats you exactly the way you always want to be treated?

Some further information about our incredible Black Friday sale:

1) It runs from 9 AM to Midnight only. All orders should be placed through our checkout, because we will be mostly closed, so our employees can spend Thanksgiving Weekend with their families!

2) We don't have zillion dollar inventory control software, so we will fill all orders when we return on Monday (in the order they were placed) and if we "oversold" any items, we will notify those who did not get those items on Monday (but we DO have ten to twenty of most posters, so there is a good chance we will only oversell a very few, if any).

3) The 600+ items that were already on the site have had their prices slashed. We REALLY do want to get them sold, and if it takes super low prices to do so, so be it!

4) The 565 newly added items will be priced under where the same posters have sold for recently (in some cases, quite a bit under). We will fill all orders for these that are received on Friday, and then they will go "off sale" until Monday (so we can figure out what we sold of each) and then they will be re-offered beginning Monday, but as always with out Fixed Price items, the prices will have been raised from what they were offered for on Friday (the ONLY exception is any posters where we did not sell even ONE example on Friday; on those likely few items, we will lower the prices ever further on Monday!).

Best of luck to all of you who order from our first ever Black Friday sale!

We will fill all orders for these that are received on Friday, and then they will go "off sale" until Monday (so we can figure out what we sold of each) and then they will be re-offered beginning Monday, but as always with out Fixed Price items, the prices will have been raised from what they were offered for on Friday (the ONLY exception is any posters where we did not sell even ONE example on Friday; on those likely few items, we will lower the prices ever further on Monday!).

Best of luck to all of you who order from our first ever Black Friday sale!

If you have looked at our current 999 folded one-sheets closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html, you might be asking yourself "Why are HALF of them  still at just $1, $2, $3, or $4 with hours to go?"

The answer might lie in its taking place right before the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday (and also right before our December Major auction begins), but a far BETTER question to ask yourself is "Why am I not bidding on these super-low priced posters, which include many rarities from all years and genres?"!

Remember that when we say "$1", we really mean "$1" and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site. At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin).

But you could buy a bunch and start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! So why not start looking over these 999 folded one-sheets right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that may well cost you less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and will surely give you many years of viewing pleasure?

Well, to be fair, I prefer to see double posts with dozen large images of posters than the lengthy "Tea Party" talk with pictures of Trump and people arguing on the web. It has been dragging for months and still on.  Time to go international, can we create threads about the Le Pen and FN party in France, and Farage and Ukip in UK and AFD in Germany ?

(http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/facebook/000/500/616/998.jpg)

So Bruce, thank you for that indeed but I wouldn't mind some pictures of posters, just to compensate the not worthy Trump and US politics threads.

What is really funny is that I COULD post 8 times every single day (twice for each of the three weekly auctions, and twice for the next upcoming major auctions), since that is how other auction sites do it. But I feel that it makes more sense to just post once on the day each auction closes, because you all surely know of the auctions, and this way it is just a gentle reminder not to forget.

Here is something to give thanks for! We have hundreds of amazing bargains in our 999 non-U.S. posters, lobby cards & stills (from 15 different countries!) closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html and you WILL want to check these out, but please do so soon, because if you wait too long it will be someone else who is "thankful" for getting incredible deals on these non-U.S. posters, lobby cards and stills!

With just hours to go on these auctions, 464 of these are at $1 (125 have no bid at all, so $1 can win those), and 624 are at just $1 to $5! And almost all of the 375 items over just $5 are FAR under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past. This set of auctions contains a LOT of better quality (and often rare) Russian, Australian, German, Mexican, and French posters and lobby cards, and yet even the best of these are often VERY affordable!

And remember that there are NO buyers premiums (especially the dreadful $19 minimum ones), so $1 is REALLY $1, and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping no matter how many of these you get, even if you get 100 of them! We only charge the actual cost of shipping plus $3 for packaging materials if you live outside the U.S., and you can accumulate all you win in six weeks into as few packages as possible, which saves you a fortune on shipping.

But you can't get these great deals if you aren't bidding, so why not go to the above link right now, and you will quickly see how great the deals are (and you will need some time to look over this many varied posters, lobby cards & stills)?

In less than FOUR hours (as of this writing, perhaps a much shorter time when you are seeing this), we will hold our first time ever incredible Black Friday sale!

Here is some valuable further information about this special event:

1) It runs from 9 AM to Midnight only on Friday November 25th at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/2.html. All orders must be placed through our checkout, because we will be closed, so our employees can spend Thanksgiving Weekend with their families! All the Fixed Priced items were taken off the site on Thursday, and they will be re-added Friday at 9 AM CST, at which point everyone can place their orders, but not before, and you can place your order ANY time during the day on Friday (all the way until Midnight, CST)!

2) We don't have zillion dollar inventory control software, so we will fill all orders when we return to work on Monday (in the order they were placed) and if we "oversold" any items, we will notify those who did not get those items on Monday (but we DO have ten to twenty of most posters, so there is a good chance we will only oversell a very few titles, if any). PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING OF THIS IF YOU ARE INFORMED ON MONDAY YOU DID NOT GET ALL YOU ORDERED!

3) The 600+ Fixed Priced items that were already on the site prior to Thursday have had their prices slashed. We REALLY do want to get them sold, and if it takes super low prices to do so, so be it!

4) We have 565 newly added Fixed Priced items all prepared and ready to the site on Friday at 9 AM CST (ones we have not had before)! They will be priced under where the same posters have sold for recently (in some cases, quite a bit under).

5) Starting at Midnight Saturday, all the Fixed Priced will go "off sale" until Monday. We will come in to work on Saturday and Sunday when we are closed, and we will fill all orders for the Fixed Priced items that were received on Friday (so we can figure out what we sold of each).

6) The Fixed Priced items (minus the sold-out ones) will be re-offered beginning Monday, but as always with out Fixed Price items, the prices will have been raised from what they were offered for on Friday (the ONLY exception is any posters where we did not sell even ONE example on Friday; on those likely few items, we will lower the prices ever further on Monday!).

Remember that we will be closed on Friday, so if you have any problems of any kind, please email us, and we will contact you when we return on Monday.

Best of luck to all of you who order from this, our first ever Black Friday Sale (with low prices on 565 new additions, and slashed prices on unsold old titles)! We often hear from people who say that they would much prefer to not have to go through the trouble of bidding in auctions, and if you are one of those people (or just someone who likes great deals!), then this is what you have been waiting for!

Encountering some glitches with your checkout at the moment. I signed in, put a few items in my cart, got to the order page and tried to remove one right before paying, and the whole thing went to hell. Everything disappeared.

Now they are showing as a pending order and it won't let me remove the one I didn't want. Haven't paid yet.

This was reported to us, and was quickly fixed. You should have no further problems, but if you do, simply send an email to phillip@emovieposter.com, and we will address it right away.

Incidentally, orders are pouring in, but amazingly to me, they are pretty even spread among lots of titles, so nothing has sold out yet (that I am aware of) so any of you should be able to go on and buy any of the items, and still get everything!

Post by: BruceH on November 25, 2016, 10:26:54 PM
Thanks guys!

Here is the amazing part. There are two hours to go, and even though it appears we sold over 600 posters (and maybe a lot more), I am pretty certain we have not sold out of even one item!

So that means that, with two hours left, a person could go on right now, and whatever items they pick, they will almost surely get them all.

But promptly at midnight, EVERY item disappears. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, I re-price everything (all the ones that sold go up, and the ones that didn't sell even one go down), and everyone gets another chance on Monday.

In just a few hours (as of this writing, perhaps a much shorter time when you are seeing this), we will hold our first time ever "Cyber Monday" sale at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/2.html (a "sequel to our just-held Black Friday sale)!

Some of you participated in the Black Friday sale and some did not, but either way you can participate in this Cyber Monday sale. Here is some valuable further information about this special event:

1) It runs from 9 AM to Midnight only, today (Monday) November 28th. All orders must be placed through our checkout, because we will be super busy today, processing the hundreds of Black Friday orders we received! All the Fixed Priced items were taken off the site Friday right after the Black Friday sale concluded at midnight (so the prices could be adjusted), and they will be re-added this morning (Monday) promptly at 9 AM CST at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/2.html, at which point everyone can place their orders, but not before (so don't go to this link before 9 AM, because the items won't be there!), and you can place your order ANY time during the day on Monday (all the way until Midnight, CST)!

2) We don't have zillion dollar inventory control software, so we will fill all Cyber Monday orders when we return to work on Tuesday (in the order they were placed). If we "oversold" any items, we will notify those who did not get those items on Tuesday (but we DO have ten to twenty of most posters, so there is a good chance we will only oversell a very few titles, if any, and it appears we did not oversell even one title on Black Friday!). PLEASE BE UNDERSTANDING OF THIS SLIGHT POSSIBILITY IF YOU ARE INFORMED ON TUESDAY YOU DID NOT GET ALL YOU ORDERED!

3) There were 1,165 Fixed Priced items on the site at the start of the Black Friday sale. Of those, we sold at least one example of around 250 of the titles. On those titles we have done what we always do, and raised the prices (by 10%, for each time each item sold), and you can order those at the new price (and each time they sell again, the price will go up by another 10%, so you really have an incentive to order sooner than later).

4) BUT THERE WERE ALSO AROUND 900 TITLES WHERE WE DID NOT SELL ONE EXAMPLE ON BLACK FRIDAY, AND ON THOSE WE HAVE LOWERED THE PRICES EVEN FURTHER! In some cases, they are now FAR lower than where those same titles have sold for in the past! We REALLY do want to get them sold, and if it takes super low prices to do so, so be it!

5) Starting at Midnight Monday, all the Fixed Priced will go "off sale" until Tuesday. We will come in to work on Tuesday morning before we re-open, and we will fill all orders for the Fixed Priced items that were received on Friday (so we can figure out what we sold of each).

6) All items that sold on Cyber Monday will have their prices raised on Tuesday, by 10%, for each time each item sold. So if we sell three of an item on Monday, then the price on that item will raise 30% on Tuesday! So you certainly have a lot of incentive to buy on Cyber Monday, BECAUSE THE LISTED PRICES WILL STAY THE SAME ALL THE WAY UNTIL MIDNIGHT ON MONDAY, NO MATTER HOW MANY OF EACH WE SELL!

7) Of course, you CAN combine any purchases made from this Cyber Monday sale with any you made from the Black Friday Sale (or from our regular auctions) as long as they all fit in the same package (flat items with flat items, and rolled items with rolled items).

Best of luck to all of you who order from this, our first ever Cyber Monday Sale (with slashed prices on 900+ unsold titles from Black Friday)! We often hear from people who say that they would much prefer to not have to go through the "trouble" of bidding in auctions, and if you are one of those people (or just someone who likes great deals!), then this is what you have been waiting for!

Here's looking at you, kid! Part I of our December Major Auction (containing 993 folded one-sheets from the incredible Dominique Besson collection) is truly the stuff that dreams are made of! Now you can a preview gallery of ALL of the 993 folded one-sheets in Part I at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/parti/ (http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/parti/)

Not only do we provide you with the exact condition grade that will be on the auction, but you can also click on any image and see the "super-sized" version, so that you can really know the exact condition of each item long in advance of the auction, so you can better prepare your bidding strategy.

This is a preview gallery only. The auctions go "live" shortly after 9 PM CST on Thursday, December 1st, and at that time, you can bid on the auctions, and EVERY one of these great posters truly starts at $1, and truly has NO reserve, and truly has NO buyers premiums!

We think everyone who bought those 784 posters are going to be delighted, and we are working hard to get everyone invoiced (and shipping the ones that are not going on a "Pay and Hold"!

If you are any sort of movie poster collector, then one quick look at Part I of our December Major Auction (which is now "live" at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html) will show you that it is truly "the stuff that dreams are made of", because it contains one of the most extraordinary one-sheet collections there is, the Dominique Besson collection!

Dominique started collecting movie posters in 1981, and became a dealer in French and European posters in 1994, and has remained as a top dealer ever since! But in addition, 30 years ago, Dominique began collecting U.S. one-sheets, first those with Saul Bass art, and then adding Alfred Hitchcock posters, then Humphrey Bogart, and he finally ended up collecting in an amazing total of 47 different categories, purchasing the posters from all over the world! Now the time has come to sell this wonderful collection, and Dominique has chosen eMoviePoster.com to do so, through our auctions!

As always, our major auction is the ONLY major auction where you can TRULY get great buys, because the items REALLY start at $1 with no reserve (many auctions pretend to do the same, but actually their consignors are often allowed to bid on their own items, and you can't really get a good deal, even when an item seems to sell for a low price, because it is simply returned to the consignor).

But in our auctions, there ARE great deals every single time, so it is well worth your effort to look through all of the items carefully. This is especially true with THIS collection, because it contains so MANY rarely seen and super desirable posters that you can't go through all of them in one sitting without getting sensory overload!

What sets THIS auction apart from all others and makes it so VERY special? Many things! It has NO reserves, NO buyers premiums, NO overstated condition descriptions, NO enhanced or fuzzy images that hide defects, and NO nosebleed shipping (even in this part of our Major Auction, we charge an astoundingly low TWELVE DOLLAR flat rate U.S. shipping!

It DOES have an unparalleled selection of great one-sheets from all years in 47 different categories, all honestly described down to the last detail, and with supersized unenhanced images that reveal even the tiniest defects, so you NEVER get an unhappy surprise in our auctions!

Something that is truly amazing is that not only are NONE of these one-sheets linenbacked, but also the only "restoration" virtually any have had is the odd piece of tape stuck on the back many years ago. Not every collector cares about this, but for those who do, this is a golden opportunity, because these days you almost never see a top one-sheet that has NOT been backed and restored (and often "over-restored").

And not only will we be taking a huge loss by only charging $12 U.S. shipping on all orders from this Part I (regardless of how many one-sheets you get or how much you spend), but we will also be giving a giant movie poster refrigerator magnet to all those who purchase any ten one-sheets, and a set of our first six full-color auction catalogs (containing over $5 million dollars of posters, and which originally retailed for $120) to those who purchase any twenty one-sheets!

Since this auction contains many affordable one-sheets in addition to the very expensive ones, you may well be able to get 20 one-sheets for around $100 or so (if you focus on the least expensive) and get both the above great bonuses!

Why not go to the above link RIGHT NOW, and start viewing this amazing collection? We guarantee you have never seen anything like it before!

Pennies Per Poster! eMoviePoster.com has 160 ONE-SHEET bulk lots containing 5,104 in all (ONLY one-sheets this time, both rolled and folded!) that end this Sunday afternoon at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html, beginning at 3 PM CST (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions).

The prices have to be seen to be believed! There are very few lots that are over $1 per one-sheet, and LOTS of them that are at pennies per poster! Why do we only have one-sheets this time in our bulk lot auctions? It is because preparing our December Major Auction took everything we had, and we just flat out ran out of time! So you may be able to get unbelievable deals on these 5,104 one-sheets, better than in our "regular" bulk lot auctions!

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", and with these bulk lots, you pay only the actual cost of shipping them to you (plus $3 for packing materials) and we WILL combine your purchases into as few packages or tubes as possible!

At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin). You could start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

One thing is for certain! Whether you would be buying these to add to your collection at joke low prices, or whether you would be buying to re-sell online, or through a store or at collectible shows, you will likely never get a chance to get greater bargains! Unlike many sellers of bulk lots, we at eMoviePoster.com always picture every single item in every bulk lot, so you always know exactly what you will be receiving, and just how great a deal each bulk lot is at the price you pay!

If YOU want to take advantage of these unbelievably low-priced bulk lot ONE-SHEETS, then you need to visit the above link well before they begin closing on Sunday at 3 PM CST, because it takes a while to look at over 5,104+ one-sheet in 160 lots!

It's live! Part II of our December Major Auction is live at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html!

It contains 490 linenbacked posters of all sizes, and the selection is amazing, with many great rarities. One quick look at the above link will confirm that this is true!

ALL of the standard size rolled items in this Major Auction that are not backed (every country) are in Part III!

See a complete preview of all the 322 items in Part III of our December Major Auction (which runs from December 6th to 13th), at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/partiii/ including the lot numbers, so you can see the exact order in which they will be auctioned!

This part of the auction contains 113 unfolded one-sheets from the incredible Dominique Besson collection, including some of the most desirable and most rare posters of the past 35 years! Plus lots of choice non-U.S. posters from all genres and eras, plus some great non-movie posters. There is truly something for everyone!

They are posters from the "S2 Art Group". This company bought 100-year-old lithograph presses, completely refurbished them, and created stone slabs that allowed them to make nearly perfect replicas of classic movie posters (and in some cases making a stone litho version of a poster that was not originally a stone litho!).

They were printed in exactly the same way the posters were originally printed (re-creating them down to the finest detail within the art, and even including the tiny writing from the bottom of the poster). These posters were printed between 1997 and 2003, and were NOT printed when the movies were originally released. They are super high quality and measures 27" x 41" [69 x 104 cm] (except for two three-sheets they made, King Kong and Metropolis, which are in 3 sections and measure 41 x 81 when combined).

Here is an example: http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/archiveitem/2308962.html

There are some collectors who mostly only buy movie posters from their own country, and if you are one of those collectors I say, PLEASE consider also purchasing posters from other countries, because they often have great completely different images from the posters from your country, PLUS so MANY of them are VERY affordable!

Think I am exaggerating? Consider the 999 non-U.S. posters from 32 different countries in our current auctions closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html. There are currently 60 posters with no bid at all (so $1 can take those), 305 at $1 or with no bid, and 475 at just $1 to $5! And we have no "buyers premiums", so "$1" is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium". Just about any dealer would charge $20, $30 or more for these same posters, and even reproductions of these would surely cost $10 or so! And it is not just the least expensive posters closing in hours that represent the best deals.

The 524 that are over just $5 are mostly WAY under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past and while many are sure to get more bids, some won't, and there will surely be a LOT of "deals" (even on some of the best items) just as there always are in our honest no reserve auctions, where every item really starts at $1, and really sells to the highest bidder.

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our recently-added "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! Maybe some bidders are distracted by our December Major Auction (two parts of which are currently running) but if so, all the more reason to look these over super carefully so as to give yourself the best chance of getting great deals! But please, if you can't look at these non-U.S. posters right now, then don't put off visiting the above link for too long, because it takes a while to look over this many items, and in just a few hours they will all be going, going, GONE!

Many thanks sir.

So how are they discernible from the Original from year of release if the rendition is so perfect?

Apologies if discussed elsewhere.  Or indeed, just point me to a thread.

Best.

I believe many of them, including the one's associated with their collaboration with the AFI Top 100 Film Posters, are embossed with a tiny 'S2' at the bottom.

The S2 re-creation artists re-drew the artwork, and there are subtle artistic differences and variations when compared to the original theatrical poster. These differences reflected the S2 artists' hand and eye. The  S2s are not reproduced copies of the originals, is maybe a better way to put it.

They are discussed a bit here, too:

Part I of our December Major Auction (with the incredible Dominique Besson folded one-sheet collection) closes on Thursday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html and Part IV (more folded one-sheets, great lobby cards and more) begins right after Part I ends!

But many people have said to me, "Hey Bruce, I want to see what is in Part IV NOW, before Part I closes, and NOW you can! We have just added a complete preview gallery of Part IV at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/partiv/!

It contains ALL of the 741 items that fit in standard 11" x 14" boxes including lobby cards, folded one-sheets, and many ultra-rare items in Part IV (which runs from December 8th to 15th), including the lot numbers, so you can see the exact order in which they will be auctioned!

And here is a handy dandy chart of what is in Part IV:
3c001 MAN FROM UTAH 1934 John Wayne one-sheet
3c002-3c049 1970s one-sheets
3c050-3c091 1980s one-sheets
3c092-3c103 1990s one-sheets
3c104-3c124 Al Pacino one-sheets
3c125-3c146 De Niro/Scorsese one-sheets
3c147-3c168 Dustin Hoffman one-sheets
3c169-3c190 Woody Allen one-sheets
3c191-3c208 original 8 1/4" x 10 3/4" stills from top photographers
3c209-3c213 Universal horror heralds
3c214-3c218 linenbacked Metropolis pressbook ads
3c219-3c242 pressbooks, presskit, promo brochure, trade ad, storyboard art, special poster, mini window cards, BABE COMES HOME oversized still, DIE NIBELUNGEN cigarette card album, German programs & A0s, Mexican posters, Russian, half subway, French lobby cards
3c243-3c246 complete and incomplete lobby card sets
3c247-3c254 CHARLIE CHAPLIN'S PAY DAY lobby card set (by the card)
3c255-3c337 title lobby cards
3c338-3c741 scene lobby cards

So now you can see what is coming up in Part IV, but don't forget that Part I closes in less than a day at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, so be sure to check those out first!

I DON'T want to tell you about Part I of our August Major Auction (993 folded one-sheets from the Dominique Besson collection) which closes in just a few hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html

I am NOT going to tell you about the literally hundreds of quality one-sheets that are well under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past!
I am NOT going to tell you that LOTS of these are extremely rare styles that almost never come up for sale or auction!
I am NOT going to tell you that we don't have any reserves or buyers premiums, honest condition grading, and unenhanced super-sized images!
I am NOT going to tell you that this is the absolute finest selection of folded one-sheets offered at one time, and that people will be talking about this auction for many years to come!

Why? Because I want you to go to the above link and view all these posters for yourself, because seeing the posters (and their current bid prices) will sell them far better than anything I can write here!

But please remember that we have "time extended" bidding where 5 minutes must go by without a bid for an auction to end, so you can NEVER have an item "snatched away" from you in the final seconds, as happens so often on eBay and some other auction sites.

Each December, my company, eMoviePoster.com, has a major movie paper auction that is our best of the year. There are just a few hours left until the 993 folded one-sheets in Part I of this December Major Auction start to close at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, and maybe it is because there are just TOO MANY great items, but as of now there are lots of them with super-low prices.

Many will surely get more bids, but there are also sure to be many that will go for bargain prices, so why not go to the above link now and check them out, even if you are not a "collector"?

Unlike EVERY other major auction, we have NO buyers premiums at all, and we only charge you the actual cost of shipping, and we combine as many purchases into one package as can be safely done, which saves you lots of money.

And remember that we COMPLETELY take the "buyer beware" out of our auctions. When you buy from any other major auction, you are "gambling" (on the condition, on the image being accurate, on the items being well packed, etc, etc). But in OUR auctions, you not only KNOW for sure that what we write is 100% accurate, but you also know we give a LIFETIME GUARANTEE as to authenticity on what we sell, something NO other major auction does!

P.S. You don't have to have EVER bought a vintage movie poster to consider buying one of these! Any one of these would make a great holiday gift for your friends and relatives, because EVERYONE has a favorite movie or star, and so many of these are extremely affordable!

Of course, there is also "the stuff that dreams are made of"!

Good stuff tonight, Bruce.  Everything I like.  Nice FOLDED posters.  Makes me very happy, even though a lot of what I wanted sold for way over what I could afford.  Still got a few things, though, so good times  ;)

Part II of our December Major Auction (with 490 linenbacked posters of all sizes) closes on Sunday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html and the final Part V (159 oversized items like campaign books, 24sheets, billboard posters, paperbacked posters, tri-fold posters, and more)) begins right after Part II ends!

But many people have said to me, "Hey Bruce, I want to see what is in Part V NOW, before Part II closes, and NOW you can! We have just added a complete preview gallery of Part V at http://www.emovieposter.com/online/previews/2016dec/partv/!

It contains "only" 159 items (because they all need to be sent in large oversized flat packages and a few in oversized tubes) but there are a LOT of unbelievably scarce and choice items included, so be sure to look over this preview gallery now, and come back on Sunday when these 159 auctions go "live" (and end a week later)!

There are just a few HOURS left before the 490 linenbacked posters of all sizes in Part II of our December Major Auction start to close at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html (starting at 3 PM CST, NOT & PM, like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions). This represents an incredible buying opportunity at all price levels, but especially on those currently under $150, because many of those are well under the cost of linenbacking alone!

Think I am exaggerating? With only 8 HOURS left (as of this writing) until these start to close, there are an astonishing SEVENTY SIX of the posters under just $25 each and an even more astonishing ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY ONE of them under just $50 each (remember that these have all been professionally linenbacked and are ready to frame, usually at a cost of $25 to $50 for the small ones, $100 to $150 for the one-sheet size ones, and MUCH more for the large ones (like three-sheets or French one panels), so clearly there are incredible deals to be made!

And of course, in addition to the incredible bargains, there are also a LOT of really wonderful and very scarce posters! All eyes in the hobby will be on the wonderful French one-panel for The Maltese Falcon, which truly IS "the stuff that dreams are made of" (as Humphrey Bogart said about the Falcon itself, within the movie)! If you like truly rare posters, this part of the auction has a lot of them, and come Sunday, they will ALL have new owners, because this is one auction where every item truly has no reserve, and truly sells to the highest bidder. Best of luck to those of you participate in this VERY special auction!

Now that the first two parts of our December Major Auction have ended (with combined sales of $433,444!), you might be thinking that all the best parts are over, but actually, the remaining Parts II, III, and IV have many wonderful (and rare) items in each!

Part III closes Tuesday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html and contains 322 U.S. and non-U.S. rolled posters
(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20161206_partiii_logo.jpg)

Part IV closes Thursday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html and contains 741 lobby cards, folded one-sheets and more
(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20161208_partiv_logo.jpg)

Part V closes Sunday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html and contains 159 items that ship in oversized tubes and boxes
(http://www.emovieposter.com/images/specialnotes/20161211_partv_logo.jpg)

And from right now until the Part III items start to close you can see ALL the items in all three parts at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/all.html (this makes searching FAR more easier)!

I guarantee you that you not only won't have trouble finding lots to bid on, but I imagine there is a great chance you will find TOO much to bid on!  But please don't wait to explore all that is offered in these three special auctions, because it takes time to look over so many fine and varied items!

Title: We were consigned 18 deluxe 11x14 photos, and none are identified!
Post by: BruceH on December 12, 2016, 10:22:32 PM
Hey to those of you who like puzzles (or who just like looking at images of pretty women!). We were consigned 18 deluxe 11x14 photos, and none are identified, but several have studio photographers' names (like Bud Fraker) on the back. See them all here: http://www.emovieposter.com/online/unidentified_stills4/

Some are of the same women, so there are not 18 to identify! With just a little research we we able to quickly determine that the first three are of Mary Webster, an actress who was in The Delicate Delinquent with Jerry Lewis, and who was in two memorable episodes of The Twilight Zone, and so we marked those.

CAN ANYONE READING THIS HELP IDENTIFY THE OTHERS? If so, just post a comment below, like this: "#1 is Mary Webster", using the numbers we gave to each image. Bonus points if you can tell us the movie she was working on (if any).

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

Part III of our December Major Auction closes in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html and contains it contains 322 U.S. and non-U.S. rolled posters that offer exceptional values in FOUR areas:

1) 140 unfolded one-sheets from the past 30 years, including the 113 unfolded one-sheets from the Dominique Besson one-sheet collection (with some of the most rare and most desirable!)

2) 19 top level inserts and half-sheets (not many of them, but they are choice, including top horror/sci-fi!)

3) 137 non-U.S. posters from many different countries, including a LOT we have never had before!

4) 26 "S2 recreation" posters of wonderful 1920s and 1930s posters (if you don't know what these are, click here: http://www.emovieposter.com/learnmore/?page=s2_recreation); these look incredible on your wall, at a fraction of the cost of the original!

Normally, these posters would be in four different sets of auctions, but today you can buy any of them in this one very special auction. You would THINK that they would be very high priced, but actually, with hours to go, just the opposite is true!

As of this writing, there are EIGHTY THREE of these posters under just $10, and 139 under just $25, and almost every poster (all the way to the most expensive) is well under where the same or similar posters have sold for in the past (and remember that we have no "buyers premiums", that often turn good deals into not-so-good ones, and we only charge $12 U.S. shipping for ALL you get in the Part III (actual cost anywhere else)!

If you have been looking for a special poster to hang on your wall, this part of the auction has a lot of them, and come later today, they will ALL have new owners, because this is one auction where every item truly has no reserve, and truly sells to the highest bidder. Best of luck to those of you participate in this VERY special auction!

741 lobby cards, folded one-sheets, and more close in HOURS in Part IV of our December Major Auction at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html. If the current bid prices stay where they are, there will be lots and lots of sensational "deals" made at EVERY price level, because a high percentage of the items are currently FAR under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past!

Just HOW low are the current bid prices? As of this writing, there are 115 items at under just $10, and 257 under just $20! And unlike many auctions, there are no tricks or fine print to these auctions, that turn "steals" into not-so-good deals. First and foremost, there are no massive $19 "minimum buyers premiums" (in fact, there are no buyers premiums at all) so "$1" is really $1. Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today (Thursday), the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else).

And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you still pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely. And you can pay for your purchases entirely within our "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping!

Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries. For example, in the case of these lobby card, folded one-sheets (and more!) auctions, you can use the search filters to quickly look at JUST the lobby cards or just the one-sheets by clicking on those Search Filters. Or say you just want to see the horror/sci-fi items! You can see just those 102 horror/sci-fi items in this auction by clicking on the Search Filter that says "horror/sci-fi", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "cowboy western"  (59 items), "Alfred Hitchcock" (25 items), "1930s" (171 items), "Boris Karloff" (19 items), "herald" (four great horror ones!) and on and on!

Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!). So why not start looking over these 741 lobby cards, folded one-sheets, and more right now, because you will need some extra time to look over this many fine items. Best of luck to all of you who participate in this very special auction!

I want to tell you about the 159 great oversized items (campaign books, 24sheets, billboard posters, paperbacked posters, tri-fold posters, etc) that close Sunday at 3 PM (NOT at 7 PM like our Tuesday and Thursday auctions) in the FINAL Part V of our December Major Auction at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html. Why are there "only" 159 items? Because all of these need to be sent in flat packages that are larger than our standard size packages OR in tubes that are longer than our standard size tubes.

But what this part of the auction lacks in quantity, it sure makes up for in quality! Not only does it contain a large number of very desirable items, but it also contains a lot of incredibly rare items! There are some very unusual sizes like 24-sheets and advertising billboard posters, but there are also more "standard" sizes like half-sheets and inserts, which are included because they are paperbacked and need to be shipped in large flat packages.

So you really want to check out all of these items, especially because, if the current bid prices stay where they are, there will be lots and lots of sensational "deals" made at EVERY price level, because a high percentage of the items are currently FAR under where the same or similar items have sold for in the past! And as we said above, some of these are so rare that we have never seen them sold in the past!

So why not start looking over these 159 really oversized items right now, because you will need some extra time to look over this many fine items of so many different types. Best of luck to all of you who participate in this very special part of the auction, which concludes our December Major Auction!

Did you know that most collectors and dealers have discovered that consigning to us is more profitable than selling on eBay (and no work at all)?

We recently observed the following completely unsolicited exchange on an online movie poster forum. One member posted this:

"Does anyone use eBay for selling and if so what is your preferred settings for the auction? I don't believe that starting your auction at .99 is logical. I would rather do the 'buy now' or start the auction at a percentage of the value of the item."

Within minutes, another member posted the following response:

"I was selling on eBay got too hard and time draining - i now send all my posters to Bruce at eMoviePoster.com when i want to sell now - after fees you still get a great price on average without all the work. Quite often a lot more than you would get on eBay. Highly recommend you look into it."

We KNOW for an absolute certainty that the above is true of a high percentage of collectors, because we have over 1,700 consignors, and a healthy percentage of those are collectors who USED to sell on eBay, but who quit for exactly the reasons the above person wrote on that forum.

In addition, a very high percentage of DEALERS now use our service as well. Some send us their slow-moving inventory, some send us their high end items where they know we will reach a far wider audience than they could on eBay, and some send all their inventory when they are looking to retire or switch businesses.

In the past two years, two of the best known dealers (both of whom have been in the hobby for decades), Dwight Cleveland and Dominique Besson, decided to consign HUGE portions of their inventories to us, even though they could have sold the items themselves, or consigned them to other auctions.

In addition, we were consigned the entire estates of half a dozen very long term collectors who passed away during those two years. Those collectors left instructions with their heirs to have their collections auctioned through us, both because they knew we would get their heirs the most money overall, but also because, even more importantly, they knew that we would be 100% honest in the auctioning of their collections (especially because, as is often the case, the heirs knew very little about the hobby).

And their trust was not misplaced in the slightest! We carefully inventory every single item, and auction everything, down to the last item, and the consignors are treated 100% honestly in every possible way.

It is not just very long time collectors who use our services. The past few years has seen two of the very foremost collectors of "newer" posters, Holiday Russell and Mel Hutson, turn to eMoviePoster.com when they decided it was time to sell a large portion of their collections!

And know that our next major auction will be sometime in the spring, perhaps April or May, and it is not to early to consign today! Realize that many other auction houses start their auctions by pulling out items that did not sell in their previous auctions, and that can be a large number of items, so they may have half of their auction ready before they even start.

But in OUR major auctions, we ALWAYS "start from scratch", because we actually sell everything we auction. So we currently have nothing for our spring major auction (except for some duplicated items from the just-ended one), and there is a great incentive for people to consign now rather than later, because we always use the first example of each item we are consigned, and we use the earliest consignments in our pre-auction publicity!

If YOU have items you would like to turn into cash, please join the over 1,700 others who have consigned to us. Whether you have a small number of items or a truckload, or whether you have expensive items or affordable ones, or whether you are a recent collector or have collected for decades, or whether you are solely a collector, or solely a dealer or both, we are sure you will find that (as the forum member said), "after fees you still get a great price on average without all the work. Quite often a lot more than you would get on eBay"!

If you have looked at our current 999 folded one-sheets, you might ask yourself "Why are HALF of them closing in hours at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/13.html still at just $1 to $5 with hours to go (and a QUARTER of them at just $1)?"

The answer might lie in its taking place right after our just-concluded December Major auction or right before the Christmas holiday, but a far BETTER question to ask yourself is "Why am I not bidding on these super-low priced posters, which include many rarities from all years and genres?"!

Remember that when we say "$1", we really mean "$1" and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium" found on another auction site. At these prices they cost less than wrapping paper (so you could get a bunch of these and use them that way, but to us that would be a sin).

But you could buy a bunch and start a collection, or you could slap them on eBay at $9.99 each and make a bundle, or you could sell them from your website (we can provide buyers with unwatermarked giant images of their purchases, so that is super easy to do with virtually NO work on your part). So why not go to the above link right now and start "stealing" some fun movie posters?

Plus, no matter how many of these you buy today, the U.S. shipping is just $12, even if you get 100 of them (actual cost anywhere else). And using our unique "Pay and Hold" system, you can get all you want over a three week period (six weeks outside the U.S.) and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping for everything as long as it fits in one package safely.

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! So why not start looking over these 999 folded one-sheets right now, and start finding that perfect poster to display in your home, one that may well cost you less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks, and will surely give you many years of viewing pleasure?

Our buyers saved even more than usual in Parts I, III and IV of our December Major Auction!

If you have EVER bought from ANY major auction anywhere (movie posters or anywhere else), then you already know that several unhappy surprises await you after your first winning bid. The first is that they tack on a massive 19.5% or 20% or even 25% "buyers premium", a hideous "service fee" that you must pay in addition to what you bid (and it would not be so bad if at least some or all of this at least went to the consignor, but 100% of it goes to the auction house (which is why they have it, so that they can deceive the consignors into thinking their fees are not extremely high). Worst of all, some auctions have a minimum $19 buyers premium, so they take $19.25 on a $20 sale, leaving the consignor with literally pennies.

The second is shipping. At almost every major auction, there are two terrible things about how they ship their items. The first is that they often depend on shipping to be an added "profit center" and so they often charge insanely high shipping charges that bear no semblance to what they pay to ship the items. The second is that their people doing the shipping (if they do it "in house") often no next-to nothing about packing vintage movie paper (and if they hire an outside shipping company, then it is even more likely that company knows little about shipping).

Of course, there are added worries. Many auctions use "stock images" (or enhance the images they take) to make items look better than they are, and often they mis-describe or overgrade items. This would not be so bad if they stood behind what they auction, but actually it is just the other way around, because almost every major auction subscribes to the "buyer beware" policy, where they guarantee absolutely NOTHING about what they auction (ALL sales are "final").

But all of this is exactly the opposite at eMoviePoster.com. We have NO buyers premiums whatsoever! On shipping, we NEVER charge more than what we pay to ship the item (plus $3 for packing materials) and often, in our "regular" weekly auctions, we have a flat-rate U.S. shipping, no matter how many items the buyer gets, which can save them a massive amount on shipping!

And of course we are well known throughout the collectibles world as having both the harshest and most accurate grading system there is, and we ALWAYS show you an actual unenhanced item of every item we auction, so there are no surprises when the items arrive. And we alone of EVERY major auction has a lifetime guarantee on almost every item we auction (we only make an exception of signed items). If ANY item we auction proves to other than we said (an unmarked re-release, a repro, etc), then we offer a full refund the moment we discover our error, and we even refund the shipping. Most important, we track the people down, even if it is many YEARS since they bought the item from us!

BUT IN PARTS I, III, AND IV OF OUR JUST-CONCLUDED MAJOR AUCTION, OUR BIDDERS HAD A CHANCE TO SAVE FAR MORE THAN USUAL! What do I mean? In all three of those parts, we offered our $12 flat-rate U.S. shipping, no matter how many items each bidder won!

This addition special promotion will end up costing us thousands of dollars. To take the most extreme example, the person who bought the Casablanca one-sheet in Part I only paid $12 for us to ship it to him, even though (because of the high insurance cost) it cost us $92.26 to send it via Registered Mail! And this was true with lots and lots of the buyers in Part I, (and also in Part III and IV), because in all of those three parts we only charged U.S. buyers a flat $12 shipping!

In addition, we had another promotion in Part I only, where all those who bought over 10 items received a giant refrigerator magnet, and all those who bought over 20 items received the giant refrigerator magnet, PLUS the set of the first six auction catalogs we did (which originally retailed for $120)!

So these are just that many more reasons to always think "eMoviePoster.com" first, when you are thinking of bidding in any auctions, whether online or live, major or regular, etc!

Do you like lobby cards? Want to give yourself a great inexpensive holiday present? If you have ANY interest in vintage lobby cards, then you are going to LOVE our current auctions of 999 complete and incomplete lobby card sets (6,067 cards in all) closing in HOURS at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/14.html, because they represent a really great lobby card buying opportunity!

Think I am exaggerating? Think again, because as of this writing, with just hours to go, there are 193 of these sets at $1 or with no bid and over ONE THIRD at just $1 to $5! Since all of these have at least 2 cards, and over half of them are complete sets of 8 or more, this means most are well under just a DOLLAR per card and many are just PENNIES per card.

And on all the sets (not just the lowest priced ones), almost ALL of them are FAR under where the same or similar sets have sold for in the past (and in some cases, you will likely be able to buy a complete or incomplete set for little more than what most dealers would charge for the title card or one of the better scenes)!

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", and you pay just $12 U.S. shipping no matter how many of these you get, even if you get 100 sets! If you focus on the least expensive cards, you may be able to buy a giant box of hundreds of cards, and have it cost just $100 or so, INCLUDING U.S. shipping!

If you are a fan of older lobby cards, know that over half of these are from the 1950s and earlier, and many of these older cards offer the absolute best values, even though many of these titles are extremely rare! Are you only interested (or mostly interested) in a specific genre, star, studio, or decade? Don't forget to use our "Search Filters" which are located to the left of our auction galleries.

For example, in the case of these lobby card auctions, they include a whopping 210 horror/sci-fi sets (including some excellent titles), and you can see just those by clicking on the Search Filter that says "horror/sci-fi", and the same is true for all the other filters, like "cowboy western", "crime", "Walt Disney", "Alan Ladd", "James Bond", or for the 118 lobby card sets that are solely from the 1940s, and on and on! Using these Search Filters well makes your time spent in our galleries FAR more productive, and once you get used to them, you won't know how you ever lived without them (and there is no other auction site that has similar Search Filters that work like ours do!).

And you can now pay for your purchases entirely within our "Checkout 2.0", which even works with "Pay and Hold" orders, which saves you a fortune on shipping! But there is no way you can look through 999 lobby card sets in just a short while, so whether you would be purchasing these to add to your collection or to re-sell for big profits, why not start looking these over soon, and give yourself plenty of time to place your bids, so it can be YOU can be getting some the great deals that surely will be made when these close in just a few hours?

Our auctions closing Sunday at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/1/15.html are TWO sets of auctions in one! First, we have 105 "oversized" rolled posters (mostly 40x60 posters and 24" x 82" paper banners), plus some other rarities (including two possibly unique posters from the aborted 2001 release of Scorsese's Gangs of New York!).

Most of these posters virtually never are offered at sale or auction. If you like super-rare and unusual posters, this auction (the first 105 items closing Sunday) is for you!

Second, the remaining 728 items are all "bulk lots"  (containing 11,966 items in all). But whereas we usually mostly only offer lots of posters, lobby cards and stills, THIS time we are offering hundreds of bulk lots of really rare books and magazines, collected over many decades by a dedicated film buff who loved reading about the greatest Hollywood directors and screenwriters.

Included are many lots that consist of printed screenplays of great movies. This collection could not be duplicated in a decade, and yet all these items will have new owners come Sunday, because all the lots started at $1, and REALLY have no reserve.

This month's offering (we do an auction solely of "bulk lots" at least once a month) represents a great opportunity to get fantastic bargains on all types of movie paper (and this month, lots of film books and magazines too).

These contain something for every collector, and dealers will love the under wholesale prices on many of the lots! As of right now, with two days to go, 275 of these lots and oversized rolled posters have no bid at all, and TWO THIRDS are still at their opening bid of $1, and the rest are mostly currently at FAR under low wholesale prices (in fact, almost all of the bulk lots are at just pennies per item!).

Remember that on OUR auctions there are NO buyers premiums, so $1 is REALLY $1, and NOT "$1, plus $19 buyers premium", and with these bulk lots and oversized rolled posters, you pay only the actual cost of shipping them to you (plus $3 for packing materials) and we WILL combine your purchases into as few packages or tubes as possible!

Whether you would be buying these to add to your collection at joke low prices, or whether you would be buying to re-sell online, or through a store or at collectible shows, you will likely never get a chance to get greater bargains! Unlike many sellers of bulk lots, we at eMoviePoster.com always picture every single item in every bulk lot, so you always know exactly what you will be receiving, and just how great a deal each bulk lot is at the price you pay!

If YOU want to take advantage of these unbelievably low-priced bulk lots and oversized rolled posters, then you need to visit the above link well before they begin closing on Sunday at 3 PM CST, because it takes a while to look at over 105 oversized rolled posters AND 728 bulk lots containing 11,966 in all!

Merry Christmas! Some fool scheduled 105 "oversized" rolled posters (mostly 40x60 posters and 24" x 82" paper banners) AND 728 "bulk lots"  (containing 11,966 items in all) to close on the afternoon of Christmas Day at http://www.emovieposter.com/agallery/sort/4/15.html, so there may be the chance for really incredible buys, especially since there are NO reserves on any of them and they ALL start at $1!

If YOU don't celebrate the holiday, or get tired of the endless football games, or just want to take a break, you could do no better than to look these over, as the 105 "oversized" posters contain LOTS of good (and almost never seen) titles and the bulk lots contain LOTS of incredible bargains!
Many of these bulk lots came from a collector who loved film history (especially great directors) and there are many, many lots of books on great directors, laserdiscs of their movies, magazines of film criticism, etc, and most of those are practically being GIVEN away (and I am not exaggerating)!

As of right now, with HOURS to go, 318 of these lots and oversized rolled posters are still at their opening bid of $1, HALF are at just $1 to $4, and the rest are mostly currently at FAR under low wholesale prices (in fact, many of the bulk lots are at just pennies per item!).

If YOU want to take advantage of these unbelievably low-priced bulk lots and oversized rolled posters, then you need to visit the above link well before they begin closing TODAY
