New member introduction...
« on: May 20, 2022, 09:05:12 PM »
Hello and thanks for adding me to the forum.

A little background on me:
I'm in my late 40's and have been a collector of something as far back as I can remember. Over the years I've collected vintage shotguns, art, cars, coin-op and arcade machines, type 1 photography, sports cards and sports memorabilia. In the last couple of years I've started to dabble in CGC graded golden age horror comics and through people I've met in that area I've been turned on to vintage horror and sci-fi movie posters, with my favorite being pre-1960 horror posters. At one time my collection was thousands of items but after a big purge in 2006 and 2018 I prefer to maintain a smaller but higher-end collection now. So far I've added one horror poster to the collection which is a high grade 1936 Swedish One Sheet from Dracula's Daughter (Dotter) and I'm excited to learn more as I build a collection.

Again, Thanks for the add.

Welcome Crypt.of.Terror. 

I don't personally collect horror posters, but a few people on this forum do.  Antoine especially, so hopefully he will see this post and connect with you.  Or you can try to messenger him directly.

Hi Crypt.of.Terror, and welcome to the forum!  As Thierry mentioned, it sounds like your interests pretty much align with mine, seeing as the bulk of my collection focuses on horror and sci-fi from the 1930s through the late 1970s, with an emphasis on classic  Universal horror and Hammer films.  I should add that I tend to mostly go for US, British, French and Italian paper.  I would love to see examples from your collection, so please feel free to share.  Since you mention Dracula's Daughter, I will conclude by noting that I own a first release US half sheet style B and a rare pressbook for that movie.
