Photos are of the actual item(s) you'll be receiving. NOTE: Beautiful Style B one sheet for what many consider to be the best Star Wars film. This piece came directly out of my personal film memorabilia and movie poster collection that I amassed over decades of collecting. I collected mostly one sheets from the best movies of the year, with an emphasis on beautiful artwork and country-of-origin, but I also ended up with lots of other poster sizes as well. You'll find everything from half sheets, 3 sheets, 6 sheets, and lobby cards - to props, presskits and trailers, etc...Original Star Wars posters - to original Pulp Fiction advances. Once they're gone, they're gone! I try to take photos for you in both natural and artificial light (which is why you might see a slight color difference between the images). My light box uses fluorescent lights - which typically register as green on film - so those images should lose some of the yellows/oranges/reds due to the green light. I've included a color-chart at the top right to help you see what the light is doing to those colors.

I do not sell fakes, reprints, commercial posters, reproductions, video posters, etc.. Although, as with all rules, there are a few odd exceptions.There's no theatrical poster for things like Lonesome Dove, so if you want a real poster, your only option is the video one sheet. Similarly, the video one sheet for Dawn of the Dead is actually better looking than the theatrical posters. So, I do carry the Lonesome Dove, and could conceivably carry the Dawn of the Dead. Somewhere I have a commercial poster for Star Wars or the Empire Strikes Back that somehow ended up back at the poster distributor's - where it got stamped and sent back out to other theatres to display.
So, is it now a real poster? Similarly, I can remember when the Matrix was released and the studio wasn't expecting it to do as well as it did - and they completely ran out of one sheets late in the film's first release! That's why Matrix one sheets have always been so sought after, there's never been enough. Again, does that make those specific commercial posters real now?By the definition most collectors use, it would. Or, at least, it might. Most of my posters were sourced from movie theatres or poster distribution warehouses by myself personally. So, rest assured, none of my posters came from any of those bad dealers you've heard so much about. And any posters with known bootlegs have been checked to make sure they're original, even the ones I personally took out of a theatre's projection or poster-storage room myself. If you see anything I've mis-described, please let me know so I can update the listing! If you would like faster service or a different courier FexEx, UPS, Purolator, DHL, etc... , that can be arranged, but will likely cost considerably more.

The cut-off time here is 3pm EST. I package everything as safely as I can given size and weight constraints.Folded posters typically get sandwiched in-between cardboard - and then placed inside a larger box so it has two layers of protection. Rolled posters typically get wrapped in near-neutral-PH paper, then placed inside a tube which gets put into a 200# test box. So, again, two layers of protection. I try to use recycled cardboard wherever possible.
Please see the detailed photographs so you can judge each item's authenticity, condition, and defects for yourself. I typically don't list condition descriptions as they are purely subjective and I wouldn't want anyone to be unhappy because they thought the poster wasn't in the condition I described (amongst other reasons). Unfortunately, due to recent service-disruptions and the rise of porch-pirates, etc... I have collected original movie posters for several decades now. I provided the servers (pro bono) that hosted the internet's first movie-poster authentication site, a site which was responsible for severely curtailing fraud inside the hobby.
I was even the person who first broke one of the biggest bootleg scandals our hobby has ever seen. Or maybe it was two? So, you can rest assured that you are getting what you paid for!
