This is what all you JOHN BELUSHI fans have been waiting for!
is a beautiful example of an original 27"x41" U.S. one sheet movie
poster from the classic "THE BLUES BROTHERS". These are very difficult
to find in any condition!
long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. Well
preserved. UNUSED!! Graded C8-C9 Excellent to Near Mint condition. You
will have trouble finding a nicer one.
a vintage poster is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EX
C8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it
(when compared to a linen backed/restored one). Most experienced
collectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because they
believe they will appreciate more in value.
buying collectibles it is always wise to buy "the best of the best" as
they stand a greater chance of appreciation. This poster is considered
to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY.
An iconic image.
Bright vivid colors.
There are known reprints and/or reproductions of this poster. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!
is guaranteed to be a genuine ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the
studio when the film was first released and meant for theatrical
We are absolutely certain it is authentic.
be aware that most original movie posters issued before the mid 1980's
were issued FOLDED (over 95%). This is NOT considered a defect. They
were shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist,
however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster LINEN
BACKED which will make the fold lines virtually disappear.
please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater
and some will contain slight imperfections like writing on the back,
pin holes, fold wear, etc. These are all very common and to be
expected, but, if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be
remedied in the linen backing process. LINEN BACKING
preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most
part any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near
Mint condition. For more details on Linen Backing please email us or
call 602 309 0500 and ask for Dave.
otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate
to the nearest inch. For example, if we say a poster is 27"x41" its
precise measurements may be something like 26 3/4" x 40 7/8". This is
quite common for all original movie posters.
BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS!!
are bootlegs, reprints, reproductions, re-strikes, re-issues, etc. all
over ebay. WE DO NOT SELL THESE! There are many unscrupulous dealers
who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been
doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from
originals, only experts can tell. Many who buy them don't know they
have been taken, only years later when they sell them do they find out
they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and
80’s. They usually appear in insert size 14x36 and one sheet size
27x41. These posters can be found from dealers who seem trustworthy
because of their great feedback. Again, all we can say is BEWARE!! For
more information please see our EBAY GUIDES link above.
We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale which is summarized below:
C10 Mint - Investment quality. No perceptible flaws of any kind.
C9 Near Mint - Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster.
C8 Excellent - Investment quality. A few minor defects.
C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine condition. Still a very nicely preserved item.
C6 Very Good - The typical used poster in average condition.
C5 Good to Very Good - A heavily-worn item.
C4 Good - Below average but still suitable for display.
C3 Fair - Heavily worn, but yet still complete.
C2 Poor to Fair - An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item.
C1 Poor - The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition.
For details on this grading system please see our Ebay Guide GRADING / CONDITION.
of our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster will
contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for
one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a

HOW WE PACKAGE OUR POSTERS
take extra special care when we package your item. For folded posters
we put them in a plastic bag or envelope and in between two or four
pieces of STRONG cardboard and tape it together before placing in the
shipping envelope/box. We stamp “DO NOT BEND” all over the outside of
the package. For rolled posters we put them in a STRONG 3” or greater
diameter tube with thick walls at least 3/16” or 1/4“ or thicker. We
roll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube. This is VERY
IMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent them
from getting wrinkled. We then wrap with paper or plastic and tape it
closed and put soft cushioning material (also very important!) on the
ends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp “FRAGILE: DO NOT
BEND” all over the outside of the package.
