Good luck to our buddy Matt who is selling this Italian Casablanca tomorrow.  Already at $90k. 

Wonder how much higher it can go?


Anyone who would sell a Casablanca at an outlet other than HA right now needs to have their head examined.

Quite possibly, that might apply to anyone considering selling any 5-figure plus poster. You either want to attract the biggest buyers or you don't.

Amazing that a poster for a 20 year RR would gather this kind of steam.

I guess it just goes to show that those who LOVE this film (or any, for that matter) and want a piece of it, are willing to pay up, even for a much later RR.

Regardless, good for you, Matt! And here's hoping it goes even higher!!   cheers

Matt, how long did you yourself own that Casa poster? When did you pick that copy up?

Zowie, Matt! That was yours? Bravo, pal!  Well done.

How did you do, Mel? Did you have your phasers set on stun, kill or obliterate?

I got one thing and then I was done. Nothing too fancy (Hello? It's me. You know my taste...). I'll save it for my next posting on my thread.

Congrats to all who won something or sold well.

A "tub full of movie posters" on eBay. I wonder if this has anything worthwhile in it?!
Would love to hear from the buyer in case someone here gets it.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/222714552187?rmvSB=true

(Also in case someone is worried about "outing", this is the most watched poster auction on eBay so fair game I would say!)

The tub ended up selling for US $1,125.00 with 30 bids, roughly 2 bucks per poster plus shipping.

Oh and I just saw this on the seller's feedback!

ONLY 340 Posters! Not even close to 6-900 as listed. Poor Condition. Very Unhappy

Lot of 600 - 900 original vintage 27x41 one sheet movie posters! 1930s - 1990s! (#222704264220)


So pretty much a scam as expected then.

Buyer should have immediately filed a dispute with ebay for item not as described. Not even 60% of the lowest number of items advertised.

When someone posts to ebay with that high a price, I doubt they intend to sell.  More likely they are doing 1 of 2 things.  They could simply be bragging that they own something really cool.  More likely they are setting a stake in the ground to claim a high declared value for insurance purposes.

Todd also puts these high priced beauties in to draw people to look at the variety of other, much lower priced posters he has for sale, too.

Classic eye candy to pull potential buyers in.

What's this?

https://movieposters.ha.com/itm/you-only-live-twice-united-artists-1967-partial-poster-485-x-29-james-bond/p/161803-24005.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515

The right edging reminds of some 1940's Saint lobby cards I had whereby the side edge looked as though perhaps the card had been ripped from a book or some such.  A slightly deckled effect.

As to what this poster is, is anyone's guess?  Was from a larger format?  Or, was it torn from something holding it in place?  The fold lines all look equidistant.

Thoughts?

Don’t know but it uses the doctored/censored US are so maybe that can narrow it?  Maybe a banner of some sort? At 29” tall and who knows how long your guess is as good as mine!

What makes you think it is a fake?  Multiple censor stamps, signs of usage.  I'd say the wrinkles come from removing it from wherever it was pasted to.

It seems way too much effort to disguise a repro in order to sell it at a low price.

Maybe better to ask if it's a first release or later RR (as this discussion has come up before with Belgians for this title).

And, to me, it doesnt look like it was ever pasted to anything and later removed, but improperly and overly folded over time, hence the multiple, horizontal creases.

No map on the back.  Can anyone identify these stamps or cancellations?

None of this is definitive, but I thought I'd share the results of browsing of Belgian tax stamps over the last hour...  ;D

STYLE 1 -- MAID MARIAN style



I think this is the same stamp, on this 40's issued, map-backed poster:

https://movieposters.ha.com/itm/movie-posters/war/across-the-pacific-warner-brothers-late-1940s-first-post-war-release-belgian-1125-x-1675-war/a/161739-54007.s

This Naughty Nineties poster from 1945 as well:

http://www.moviemem.com/products/comedy-movie-posters/the-naughty-nineties-original-belgian-movie-poster

Same stamp still in use in 1954:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/TEN-WANTED-MEN-ORIGINAL-1954-BELGIAN-POSTER-RANDOLPH-SCOTT-COWBOY-ON-HORSE/252465444172?hash=item3ac81cf54c:g:gUAAAOSwZVlXjB6i

And in 1955 with Underwater!:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/ADVENTURE-JANE-RUSSELL-UNDERWATER-ORIGINAL-belgian-poster/192357192835?hash=item2cc961d483:g:e4EAAOSwmBhaAYy4

STYLE 2 -- CATWOMAN style




On this 1956 poster the stamp appears to be different:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Man-from-Del-Rio-1956-Belgian-Poster/140742744843?hash=item20c4ebdb0b:g:2R0AAOSw9LxZrXTd

This one also uses the later/different stamp and is dated 1958:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Belgian-Movie-Poster-TARANTULA-original-vintage-trimmed-at-top-with-stamps-folds-/112725984406


STYLE 3 -- EVERYBODY GOT SHOULDERS ALL OF A SUDDEN style




This Horror of Dracula is likely from 1959 and uses both the 'catwoman' 2nd style and a new 'shoulders' 3rd style stamp:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/HORROR-OF-DRACULA-CHRISTOPHER-LEE-FIRST-RELEASE-BELGIAN-14-X-22-INCH-POSTER/171625937839?hash=item27f5b3fbaf:g:Cq4AAOSw7ThUpctU

The 'shoulders' 3rd style appears in use through the mid 1960s:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/EL-DORADO-ORIGINAL-1966-BELGIAN-POSTER-GREAT-JOHN-WAYNE-ROBERT-MITCHUM-ART/261655850409?hash=item3cebe76da9:g:57IAAOxybetSDBIo

Great info there, Matt.

And I never realized the nice artwork that went into many of the Belgian tax stamps.

Here's an enlarged image from one of the links you offered above (clicking on the image will enlarge it further):
