Movie Poster Auctions

I often get asked by people if it is a good idea to sell their movie posters or lobby cards through a movie poster auction. There are several auction houses that occasionally have poster auctions and consigning your movie posters to them can be an option. Unless you find a serious collector like myself, people can have a difficult time selling their posters for a good price. One of the main reasons I started my website is so collectors of posters, or anyone who has memorabilia can find me and deal directly with a collector; myself.

Movie Poster Grading Service?

As a follow up to the post I made the other day about third party poster authentication, the subject also brings up the issue of third party movie poster grading.

It has been this way for over 20 years, and some ask why should that change. Read more about Movie Poster Grading Service? appraisals

Movie Poster Authentication service?

Slabbing is the term used for those other collectibles, meaning the item is placed inside a tamper proof plastic case with a unique serial number.

Son of Frankenstein 1939

There has been some great concern lately, and rightfully so, about a major scandal going on in our hobby about fake posters, lobby cards, and window cards.

Being that I was one of the victims, and am very familiar with the situation and all involved I felt in necessary to report the following:

To date, the ONLY items being faked are 1930's-1940's, horror movie posters, window cards, and lobby cards, including all known reissues for the Universal horror films. Read more about Horror movie poster fakes appraisals

Silent Movies Are Subject of New Library Publication

From their birth in the 1890s with the earliest narrative shorts, through the full-length features of the1920s, silent movies have captured the American imagination. These artifacts of a fledgling industry continue to engage viewers 80 years after the release of "The Jazz Singer," starring Al Jolson, the first full-length feature film to incorporate synchronized dialogue and thereby herald the age of the "talkies."

Movie Poster to 'Lost' Creator Abrams' Mystery Project Leaked

According to a blog source:

What is believed to be the poster for the film appeared briefly in the window of a South California collectibles shop “Frank and Sons,” and was subsequently removed as the shop shut down.  Currently, signs advertising Comic Con and the G4 network are hanging in the place of the poster.
