Is CineMasterpieces interested in posters from the 1990's to present?

 

No. Sorry. We have zero interest in 99.99% of these "newer" posters. We already have thousands in stock and we don't need any more at any price. The only posters that we may be interested in from this era are great titles like Goodfellas, Casino, Spiderman, The Matrix, Shawshank Redemption, Pulp Fiction, The Dark Knight, Star Wars Episode I, II, and III, etc.

How are we able to get much higher prices than major auction houses?

 

There are two types of buyers of vintage movie posters:

 

1. Dealers/Collectors

2. Non Collectors.

 

We sell to BOTH!

 

Auction houses sell almost exclusively to just Dealers/Collectors.

 

A Non Collector buys just one or a few posters for a home theater, a gift, or whatever. At least 50% of our sales are to Non Collectors. Often times they will pay MUCH more for a poster than a regular Collector will. The people that buy from auction houses ARE PRIMARILY OTHER DEALERS AND LONG TIME COLLECTORS. They are "looking for a bargain" at these auctions and are primarily interested in getting something at a great price so they can resell it.

 

We buy posters at these auctions all the time, and then we re sell them for much more either on our website or in our own ebay auctions.


 

 

AUCTION CONSIGNMENT

How Do You Know You Can Trust Us?

 

Before we can do business together you need to be willing to trust us and send your posters to us.

We have been on eBay since 1998 and have many client references that you are free to contact. Try us out first if you'd like! Send in just a few at a time. If you like the way our operation works, you can send in the others later.

Advantages of

Consigning With CineMasterpieces

 

  We will get you the most money possible for your posters. We will get you more money than if you sold them yourself. All we do is sell movie posters. We are experts at marketing them and we know how to create a professional listing that will reach the greatest possible audience. We will promote your posters online by direct email and on movie poster message boards to thousands of collectors and dealers worldwide. This kind of direct marketing has been incredibly successful for our clients.

 

  Our eBay auctions consistently achieve much higher prices than others. From our detailed photos and descriptions, buyers know exactly what they are getting and they are willing to pay a premium for it.

 

  Actual Examples of our Auctions / Sales Results

 

  CineMasterpieces.com is considered by many to be the best all around vintage movie poster site on the internet. We are highly visible in Google (always on the first page of search results) and get an extremely high number of visitors/buyers compared to others. This site is one of the most visited and most visible vintage movie poster websites in the world. Easy to navigate and purchase. If someone is looking for a movie poster, they will definitely visit this site.

 

   FIXED PRICE ON SITE CONSIGNMENT  If one or more of your posters are valued at greater than $750.00 each they may qualify for FIXED PRICE (rather than having us auction them at no reserve). With FIXED PRICE your posters can potentially sell at a retail price (which may be up to 5 times or more than what they usually sell for at auction). For example, if you sent us a near mint rolled Blade Runner one sheet we would probably list it here and in our eBay and AMAZON stores at a FIXED PRICE for $1195.00. By contrast, when this poster is sold at auction it usually sells for around $200.00.

 

  If we have your posters listed at a FIXED PRICE (not at auction) they are listed in three places: On this website AND in our eBay and AMAZON stores.

 

  On eBay since 1998, we are a trusted gold/platinum eBay Top Rated Power Seller. Less than .02% of eBay sellers earn high enough ratings from their customers to earn this distinction. Our elevated eBay status gives our listed posters preferred placement within eBay's search, which ultimately results in higher sales prices.

 

  We take care of everything. All you have to do is make sure your posters arrive here safely. Each poster is authenticated, professionally photographed in 12MP high resolution, and given a detailed accurate description.

 

  David A. Lieberman (the owner of CineMasterpieces) is always easily reachable by phone and email. He deals with each client personally and gives them the personal care and attention they need, making an extra effort to ensure the consignment is a successful one.

 

  Please read our Customer Testimonials

 

  Low Fees - Other auction companies charge a higher consignment fee (sometimes up to 75% or more of the final sales price). They typically also charge other hidden fees. Our Fee Structure is simplified and very straight forward. There are never any unpleasant surprises.

 

  No Buyer Premiums on any of our auctions (unlike other auction companies). Other auction companies often charge buyers an additional premium (sometimes 25% or more) of their final bid price. This discourages bidding and often results in lower prices.

 

  We don't run proprietary auctions. We run our auctions on eBay and sell to the entire world. Some auction companies have started running auctions from their own website using their own software not on eBay! They do this so they can save money and not pay eBay fees. This is a tremendous disservice to their clients as they are eliminating a huge source of potential bidders/buyers. The whole world is on eBay! Not very many people usually know about or even bother with these "semi private" auctions. We buy posters for our own inventory from these auctions all the time at really low prices and then re sell them here for MUCH more!

 

 Excellent reputation, varied selection, and stellar customer service. We have established a strong relationship with many repeat clients. As our reputation has grown, more and more people follow our auctions, look forward to them, and ultimately bid on them.

 

  Our auctions consistently appear on the EBAY PULSE. This list shows items that are currently the most watched on eBay, according to the number of users who have selected the “Watch this Item” link on an eBay listing page.

 

  Our buyers trust us and our brand name. Many collectors searching for posters WILL NOT bid on someone's auction they do not know or trust. We have more potential buyers than the average seller. This gives us a tremendous advantage over other sellers. This is the primary reason our auction/sales results are MUCH higher than everyone else's.

 

  Trust - We can be trusted with your items. We are always reachable by phone and we have a physical address for our office/gallery. We have been on eBay for 15+ years and have many client references.

 

  Safety - While in our possession, your posters are fully insured AND they are stored in a highly secure fireproof facility.

 

  Our customer base is WORLD WIDE. We sell posters every day to people all over the world.

 

 

 

 

How long will it take to sell my posters? When will you pay me for them?

 

  We run our auctions on eBay every few months, usually 4 times per year. We will pay you within 2-4 weeks after they close**.

 

 

Why do I need CineMasterpieces? Why can't I just sell my posters on eBay by myself?

 

Anyone can sell anything on eBay. Yes, you can probably sell your posters there yourself. But the truth is, you will not get anywhere near what we will and you will get MORE if you let us sell them for you. With our excellent reputation as a TOP RATED trusted Power Seller, and with our expert marketing including professional high resolution images......we get higher prices than anyone! Many buyers will not purchase high dollar posters on eBay from someone who doesn't have a stellar sales history and outstanding reputation in the poster world.

 

 

Please do not expect us to achieve a "retail" price for your posters when we auction them. Sometimes we do achieve retail prices but usually auction results are significantly lower.

 

 

If I consign my posters with your company, how much can I expect to get?

 

 

I Have Some Old Movie Posters and I'm Thinking of Selling Them: What Can I Expect?

I'd like to consign, how do I proceed?

 

 

Please email or call us at 602 309 0500 if you wish to submit your posters for Auction Consignment.

 

 

** We go to extreme lengths to qualify all auction bidders. In the unlikely event that an auction ends with a non paying bidder or if the item is returned, the auction will be run again or we will offer it to the second highest bidder. Payment will be sent within 4 weeks of a valid auction ending where the auction winner has actually paid for the item.


 

Why should you consign your items...and not try to sell them yourself?

 

Because we are experts at selling movie posters. We WILL achieve a much higher price for your posters than you would if you sold them yourself. We are MOTIVATED to get you the highest price possible. We get a percentage of the final sale price...so the more they sell for, the more we get!

 

Many people think "Oh, its easy, I can sell my posters myself on eBay". You probably can....but this is what will likely happen. You won't do as good of a job at promoting your items as we do....and if they are quality posters.....we will likely buy them and then re-sell them for MUCH more!

 

See actual examples below of posters we have "stolen" from novice sellers on eBay (and from other auctions) and then resold for MUCH more.

 

 

Actual Examples of Our Auctions / Sales Results:

 

  Star Wars 1sh Rolled Style A NM C9: We bought one of these on eBay for $80 (these can usually be bought at auction for $150 to $500). We sold it several months later on eBay for $1175. At the time, this was the most this poster had ever sold for on eBay! We have since auctioned another one for a record breaking $1476 and in 2013 sold a few at a fixed price for $2195!

 

  The Wizard of Oz Insert: We have sold two of these. One for $25,500 in 2010 and another for $41,995.00 in 2013. This very rare item when sold at auction usually sells for around $12,000.

 

  Casablanca 1sh: Sold for $35,500 in 2007. This very rare item when sold at auction usually sells for $10,000 to $20,000.

 

  Casablanca Half Sheet: Sold for $92,000 in 2013. This very rare item when sold at auction usually sells for $20,000 to $40,000.

 

  Breakfast at Tiffany's 1sh: Sold for $8,995. This poster when sold at auction usually sells for $2,000 to $3,000.

 

  Vertigo 1sh: Sold for $7,995. This poster when sold at auction usually sells for $2,500 to $3,500.

 

  Creature From the Black Lagoon Half Sheet C8-C9: Sold for $7,500. For very high dollar items we usually do a Best Offer/Buy it Now listing. This one exceeded even our expectations. Click here to see the auction.

 

  Revenge of the Jedi 1sh Rolled NM C9: We bought this poster on eBay for $210. We sold it on eBay several months later for $937. We sell them at a fixed price as fast as we can list them for $1195.00 and up.

 

  Ocean's 11 1sh Linen Backed NM C9: We bought this poster on eBay for $410. We sold it on eBay about a year later for $2025.

 

  Jaws 1sh NM C9: We bought this poster on eBay for $26. We sold it on eBay a few weeks later for $305. We sell them at a fixed price as fast as we can list them for $995.00 and up.

 

  The Godfather 1sh NM C9: We bought this poster on eBay for $110. We sold it on eBay a few months later for $380. We sell them at a fixed price as fast as we can list them for $895.00 and up.

 

  The Spy Who Loved Me 1sh EX-NM C8-C9: We bought this poster on eBay for $15. We sold it on eBay a few months later for $187.

 

 

These are just a few of the thousands of posters we have bought and sold within the past few years.

 

Obviously, the posters we bought on eBay were poorly marketed. Small pictures, bad descriptions, not featured. Hardly anyone (in some cases, no one but us) bid on them. We are constantly buying posters on eBay for a fraction of what we can turn around and sell them for. These people really shouldn't be selling posters. They have no idea how to successfully market their items.

 

Here is a typical example: We bought this Blade Runner one sheet for $9.99 on eBay. This seller claimed to be an auction expert. Can you imagine how disappointed the consignor was? They actually paid this company to run their auction for them!! After receiving it, we immediately auctioned it for $174.50.

We won a "A Christmas Story" one sheet for $38.99, and immediately turned around and auctioned it for $338.

We won a "A Nightmare on Elm Street" one sheet for $41, and sold it in our eBay store for $695.

An incredible coincidence that shows typically how much better our auctions perform over others.

 

We auctioned a Revenge of the Jedi rolled one sheet on the EXACT same date and time as someone else. Ours was in worse condition than theirs. Ours finished at $510, theirs finished at $160.17 and did not sell.

How do we compare with Heritage? Here is an example: One of our clients bought this TARANTULA one sheet from Heritage in their Nov. 14, 2006 auction. He paid $1600 plus a 19.5% buyers premium for a total of $1912. After Heritage's seller consignment fee, their client (the seller) walked away with about $1360 (assuming Heritage's seller consignment fee was 15%).

 

Just a few months later our client (the buyer who paid $1912) sent it to us and asked us to sell it for him because he needed some quick cash. We sold it April 9, 2007 on ebay in a NO RESERVE auction #180100966056 for $2550.75. After our consignment fee our client walked away with $1910.83.

 

Remember, this is the same exact poster!

 

How are we able to get much higher prices than major auction houses?

 

There are two types of buyers of vintage movie posters:

 

1. Dealers/Collectors

2. Non Collectors.

 

We sell to BOTH!

 

Auction houses sell almost exclusively to just Dealers/Collectors.

 

A Non Collector buys just one or a few posters for a home theater, a gift, or whatever. At least 50% of our sales are to Non Collectors. Often times they will pay MUCH more for a poster than a regular Collector will. The people that buy from auction houses ARE PRIMARILY OTHER DEALERS AND LONG TIME COLLECTORS. They are "looking for a bargain" at these auctions and are primarily interested in getting something at a great price so they can resell it.

 

We buy posters at these auctions all the time, and then we re sell them for much more either on our website or in our own ebay auctions.

 


 

The above results are typical, BUT WE CANNOT GUARANTEE SIMILAR RESULTS! We always do our best to market each item as it is in our best interest to get the highest dollar possible because we get a percentage of the final sales price.

 

Please be aware that the final sales price GREATLY DEPENDS ON CONDITION! For example, a Jaws 1sh in C6-C7 condition may sell for $75-$150 while one in C8-C9 condition may sell for $250-$450. Please keep in mind that collectors despise certain unsightly flaws like tape, stains, etc. and will bid accordingly.

 

Please do not have unrealistic expectations! Unpopular titles and posters with unsightly defects sometimes can perform poorly. Do not expect miracles! Often times we CAN get great prices for these marginal items, but please don't count on it. POPULAR TITLES will almost always see exceptional results.

 

Please do not base your expectations on prices you see on this website. The prices here are generally much higher than we can get on eBay. Sometimes we can achieve these prices (and even surpass them!), but please don't count on it.

 

 

 

Here are some more examples of the

much higher than average prices we achieve. These were all bought directly from our eBay store or this website:

 

Revenge of the Jedi 1sh $1895.00

Cool Hand Luke 1sh $1795.00

The Blues Brothers 1sh $895.00

Animal House 1sh $995.00

Tom and Jerry 1sh $1100.00

Donald Duck 1sh $2750.00

Jaws 2 Unreleased 1sh $3595.00

Star Wars Second Advance 1sh $2195.00

Star Wars Teaser Style B 1sh $995.00

 

 

I'd like to consign, how do I proceed?

 


 

Poster collectors and dealers have been turning away from large auction houses in recent years for the following reasons:

 

Buyer Premiums: Bidders HATE THESE! They can add up to 25% or more to the final bid price.

 

There may be other hidden fees i.e. sales tax.

 

There may be NO CHANCE of returning the item if you are unhappy with it.

 

Outrageous shipping costs in many cases, sometimes well over $100.00 to ship a single unframed poster.

 

Photos on line and in catalogs may have been digitally touched up/altered, in many cases disguising defects.

 

For restored/linen backed posters, their descriptions can sometimes be vague and misleading.

 

Confirmed cases of shilling and/or auction house employees bidding on items.

 

Their grading can be VERY generous.

 

Some auction companies have started running auctions from their own website using their own software NOT ON EBAY!! They do this  so they can save money and not pay ebay's fees. This is a tremendous disservice to their clients as they are eliminating a huge source of potential bidders/buyers.

 


 

How We Run Our eBay Auctions:

 

We auction your items for you at NO RESERVE!

 

What does NO RESERVE mean?     Why are NO RESERVE auctions a good idea?

 

We usually auction about 200 items at the same time 3-4 times per year.

 

You need to be willing to trust us and send your posters to us.

 

  We only run our auctions on eBay, the worlds largest online marketplace. It is an open and friendly environment with NO BUYER PREMIUMS! With eBay we reach the greatest audience possible of poster collectors, dealers, and those just "surfing around" looking for gifts.

 

  We almost always recommend running a NO RESERVE auction****. Why? Because time and time again it has been proven that NO RESERVE auctions gain more interest, more bidders, and ultimately result in higher prices. Many eBayers simply skip over auctions that have a RESERVE.

 

  We always start our listings low at 99 cents. Don't let this scare you! This actually encourages more bidding and ultimately results in higher prices realized. Fact: Buyers tend to ignore auctions with high starting bids.

 

  We always show very large detailed photos and give an accurate description showing all defects (if any). Buyers appreciate this and bid accordingly.

 

  We put potential buyers at ease! We accept all forms of payment. We allow buyers from all over the world (not just the U.S.). We package our items very securely, always ship with insurance, and we have an open and easy return policy. All of this encourages more bidding and achieves higher prices!

 

  Our auctions run for ten days over two separate weekends. We start them on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and they end ten days later on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.

 

  ****If your poster has a value greater than $750.00 we may recommend Fixed Price On Site Consignment. This is where we list your item at a fixed retail price and allow buyers to make a "Best Offer". This really isn't an auction at all. It is a FOR SALE listing with a set "Buy it Now" price. We are able to accept or decline offers from buyers. This has been proven to be a great way to sell an expensive item.

 

  We send out emails and post messages on movie poster forums/groups/chat rooms to thousands of collectors and dealers worldwide alerting them to the auctions.

 

  WE NEVER RUN PRIVATE AUCTIONS! There are many collectors out there who refuse to participate in private auctions. Private auctions can appear as if the seller is hiding something (i.e. shilling - bidding up his own item) and they can eliminate a large percentage of potential buyers.

 

  We don't run proprietary auctions. WE RUN OUR AUCTIONS ON EBAY AND SELL TO THE ENTIRE WORLD!   Some auction companies have started running auctions from their own website using their own software NOT ON EBAY! They do this so they can save money and not pay eBay's fees. This is a tremendous disservice to their clients as they are eliminating a huge source of potential bidders/buyers. The whole world is on eBay! Not very many people usually know about or even bother with these "semi private" auctions. We steal things for really low prices at these auctions all the time and then re sell them for MUCH more!

 

 

All of these elements combined help us achieve the highest results possible.

How Much Will You Get For Your Posters?

How It Works:

 

 

2 Types of Consignment to Choose From:

 

Fixed Price On Site Consignment and/or Auction Consignment


 

Our Fixed Price On Site Consignment fee is 25%

YOUR POSTER WILL BE FOR SALE HERE ON THIS WEBSITE

AND IN OUR EBAY AND AMAZON STORES AT A FIXED PRICE

Fixed Price On Site Consignment is only available for posters valued at $750.00 or more.

Please scroll down to the bottom of this page for details about Fixed Price On Site Consignment.


 

Our Auction Consignment fees range from 16% to 40%

We use a sliding scale, please see fee chart below.

We auction your posters on eBay.

Auction Consignment is available for posters valued between $200.00 and $500,000.

OUR FEES AVERAGE ABOUT

25%

 OF THE FINAL SALES PRICE.

MOST POSTERS SELL FOR BETWEEN $150.01 AND $550.00.


 

Auction Consignment Example 1

A poster that sells for $500.00

 

If we auction your poster and it sells for $500.00, CineMasterpieces will get 25% of the final winning bid sales price. You will receive 75% of the final winning bid sales price less the total eBay fees listed below.

 

eBay Listing Fee                                                          $1.15

eBay Final Value Fee **                                              $50.00   

TOTAL EBAY FEES                                                       $51.15

 

In this example, your "take home" would be:

 $500.00 x .75 = $375.00 - $51.15 eBay fees = $323.85

 

** The eBay Final Value Fee varies. Usually it is 10% of the final sales price.


 

Auction Consignment Example 2

A poster that sells for $1800.00

 

If your poster sells for $1800.00, CineMasterpieces will get 23% of the final winning bid sales price. You will receive 77% of the final winning bid sales price less the total eBay fees listed below.

 

eBay Listing Fee                                                         $3.15

eBay Final Value Fee                                               $180.00   

TOTAL EBAY FEES                                                     $183.15

 

In this example, your "take home" would be:

 $1800.00 x .77 = $1386.00 - $183.15 eBay fees = $1202.85


 

CineMasterpieces will pay all shipping fees to the buyer.

CineMasterpieces will pay all Paypal and Credit Card fees.

CineMasterpieces will send you your money due within 4 weeks of the auction close.

 

 

If you are sending us posters for Auction Consignment you must read and understand the following:

 

 

The following applies to customers sending us posters for Auction Consignment. It does not apply to customers sending us posters for Cash or for Fixed Price On Site Consignment.

 

Once we receive your items it may take up to 8-12 weeks for us to auction them (it is usually much quicker) and it may take up to 4 weeks after they conclude before you get paid (we have to wait for the buyers to pay us and sometimes people can be slow). If you send us duplicates of the same poster we will not auction more than one of them at a time, we will spread them out over several months.

 

You can follow the auctions on eBay and we will issue you a breakdown when we pay you.

 

Most auctions will be NO RESERVE auctions starting at $.99 for 10 days over two weekends.

 

What does NO RESERVE mean?     Why are NO RESERVE auctions a good idea?

 

Unless otherwise specified in writing by consignor, David A. Lieberman will choose which eBay categories the auctions will run in.

 

There is no guarantee on what the final price of each item will be.

 

You must agree and realize that the inherent nature of eBay auctions are that they are totally unpredictable and that anything can happen, even a much lower or higher price realized than we plan on.

 

Please do not have unrealistic expectations! Marginal posters (not very popular titles and posters with unsightly defects) sometimes can perform poorly. Do not expect miracles! Often times we CAN get great prices for these marginal items, but please don't count on it. POPULAR TITLES will almost always see exceptional results.

 

Please be sure we actually want the posters you are sending in. Ask us first. If you send us undesirable posters we will not auction them. Not all posters are valuable. If an undesirable poster is auctioned it will most likely not sell or sell for very little money. What are undesirable posters? They are posters with serious defects like paper missing, stains, mold, large tears, etc. They can also be titles that no one wants. There are thousands of titles that are just plain garbage.

 

Please do not base your expectations on RETAIL prices you see on this website. The prices here are generally much higher than we can get at auction. Sometimes we can achieve these website/retail prices (and even surpass them!), but please don't count on it.

 

Please also read this article: I Have Some Old Movie Posters and I'm Thinking of Selling Them: What Can I Expect?

 

Since we start our No Reserve auctions at $.99, they sometimes sit at a very low amount up until the very last minute. Many buyers wait until the last few minutes to bid. There is very little chance that a very valuable and highly desired item will sell for a small amount.

 

You are not allowed to bid on your own items.

 

If you change your mind and do not want us to auction your posters for you (and if we have not already processed them) we will ship them back to you at your expense.

 

If we have already processed your items we will not stop them from being auctioned unless you are willing to pay us for our time and labor ($100.00/hr.). Getting posters ready for auction takes a lot of work and includes: photographing them, digitally editing the pictures, uploading the pictures to our server, grading them, describing their defects, putting them in plastic shipping sleeves, labeling them, creating a detailed description, and scheduling them on eBay.

 

Sometimes we receive posters that should be restored and/or linen backed before auctioning them. We will discuss this with you first before proceeding. We will pay to have this done initially. Once the auction has concluded we will subtract the restoration cost from the amount due to you.

 


 

Fixed Price On Site Consignment Example:

 

A poster that sells for $2000.00

 

If your poster sells for $2000.00, CineMasterpieces will get 25% of the final sales price. You will receive 75% of the sales price less any eBay or AMAZON Final Value Fee (if it is sold in our eBay or AMAZON store there will be a Final Value Fee, if it is sold here on this website there is no Final Value Fee).

 

Final sales price                                      $2000.00

Our fee ($2000.00 x .25)                          $500.00   

Your total "take home"                              $1500.00*

 

*If it is sold in our eBay or AMAZON store there will be an additional fee of approximately 7 to 9%. There is NO initial listing fee to put it in our eBay or AMAZON store, there is only a Final Value Fee if we sell it there.

 

 


 

Auction Consignment Fees:

We only consign posters that we believe will get at least $200.00 at auction.

 

 

If the poster sells for between:

 

 

Our Fee % of the final sales price:

 

$0.00 and $50.00

40%

$50.01 and $150.00

35%

$150.01 and $550.00

25%

$550.01 and $1050.00

24%

$1050.01 and $2050.00

23%

$2050.01 and $3050.00

22%

$3050.01 and $5050.00

21%

$5050.01 and $7550.00

20%

$7550.01 and $10,050.00

19%

$10,050.01 and $20,050.00

18%

$20,050.01 and $30,050.00

17%

$30,050.01 or more

16%

 

As you can see, the more your poster sells for, the less our % fee is. This is because it generally takes the same amount of time and energy to sell a $200.00 poster as it does a $5000.00 poster.

 

OUR FEES AVERAGE ABOUT 25% OF THE FINAL SALES PRICE.

 

MOST POSTERS SELL FOR BETWEEN $150.01 AND $550.00.

 


 

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR POSTERS

Once you've decided you would like to sell

or consign your posters with CineMasterpieces:

(or if you'd like to send them in for an evaluation)

 

Thank you for choosing CineMasterpieces! We guarantee you will be more than satisfied dealing with our company.

 

If you are sending us posters for Auction Consignment

you must read this (click here).

 

You need to be willing to trust us and send your posters to us. Try us out first if you'd like! Send in just a few at a time. If you like the way our operation works, you can send in the others later.

 

1. Before submitting any posters please either call us at 602 309 0500 or email us to let us know exactly what you are sending. We need to make sure they are posters we are interested in. You can send us an email with a list including the title, year, and size of each poster. If you only have posters from the 1990's until now, please do not bother to contact us. We are sorry, but we will not be interested in them at all.

 

2. Please download our POSTER SUBMISSION FORM. Please fill it out completely with your name, address, email, and phone number and send it along with your posters to:

 

CineMasterpieces

David A. Lieberman

6201 E. Cactus Rd.

Scottsdale, AZ 85254

 

If you have any problems downloading the form, you can email us a detailed list or enclose it with the posters when you send them. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO INCLUDE ALL OF YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION! Name, Address, Phone Number and Email Address.

 

3. Please tell us exactly what you are submitting your posters for: CASH Offer, Auction Consignment, Fixed Price On Site Consignment, or Authentication. If you are not sure, please say so.

 

4. Package them securely. For tips on packaging and shipping (so they arrive safely in the same condition you send them), please see our Packaging and Shipping page. Most people do not know how to ship posters so they arrive here safely. We get damaged packages ALL THE TIME! PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ OUR Packaging and Shipping PAGE!

 

5. The safest way to ship valuable posters is by U.S. REGISTERED INSURED MAIL. When a package is shipped Registered, every person who handles it within the postal system MUST sign for it. Insure it for whatever you think your posters are worth. When you ship REGISTERED, every seal on the package MUST be covered with brown packing tape or the post office will not accept it.

 

6. Usually, we will process and auction only your posters that we believe will sell for at least $200.00. Your lesser valued posters will be sent back to you or we can make you a cash offer.

 

7. IF YOUR POSTER IS FRAMED - WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND REMOVING IT FROM THE FRAME BEFORE SHIPPING IT TO US.

 

Why? There are several reasons:

 

       1. Because it will be very heavy and cost you a lot to ship it to us (if it is a one sheet or larger). Smaller posters like half sheets and inserts can usually be shipped safely and affordably if framed with plastic/Plexiglas.

 

       2. If it is in a glass frame, the glass will most likely break during shipping and ruin the poster.

 

       3. Most people will not buy a poster that is already framed, they need to see its condition first (is it linen backed? is it dry mounted?) and you just can't tell these things when it is in a frame.

 

We understand that you may have spent a small fortune framing your item. It may have museum glass and a very elaborate frame that was not cheap. Unfortunately, any potential new owner does not care what you spent on the frame and glass. They will only be interested in the poster and its condition. Also, if it is framed in glass (not plastic/Plexiglas) we will not even attempt to ship it. The risk of damage is too great. Glass can very easily crack during shipping, and if this happens, pieces of the glass can slide across the poster scratching and ruining it. We have seen this happen more than once.

 

8. If your posters have been dry mounted to foam core or cardboard, please call us. Most collectors consider these to be ruined. There are exceptions if it is a very valuable poster.

 

9. Anyone is welcome to send us their posters at any time. After we receive them and have discussed them with you, in the unlikely event that you do not wish to sell us your posters or have us sell them for you, we will gladly ship them back to you.

 

10. If you have any questions, please call Dave at 602 309 0500.

 

11. PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO ENCLOSE ALL OF YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION!

 

Name, Address, Phone Number and Email Address.

 

(We get packages of posters all the time from people who forget to enclose their contact info.)

 

 

 

Comparing Our Fees to Others

 

Like anything in life....you get what you pay for. It may be possible to find someone else to sell your posters for you at a slightly lower rate/fee, but they most likely will not have experience selling movie posters and will definitely NOT achieve the same high prices that we do. YOU WILL END UP WITH MORE MONEY WHEN YOU CONSIGN WITH US, WE GUARANTEE IT!

 

Please see the many examples of posters we have stolen from other "professional sellers" on eBay.

 

Please see the advantages we have over others.

 

As soon as your posters arrive here they are processed and put up for auction and/or for sale at a fixed price on our website and on eBay. No waiting!!! We are always purchasing posters DIRT CHEAP from many of the "isoldit" stores that have popped up on eBay. We constantly buy posters consigned to major auction houses for a FRACTION of what we can sell them for. We have many repeat clients that have tried other routes.....but they always come back to us!

 


 

 

Instant Cash For Your Posters!

 

Does CineMasterpieces BUY posters or just consign them?

 

We do both! It really depends on what you have. If you have posters we want and if you need cash right away, and if you can't wait a few weeks for Auction Consignment and have no interest in waiting for On Site Consignment, we will make you an offer to buy them outright. Immediately! (after we see them in person). Instant Cash For Your Posters! We have spent over $1,500,000 in the past 10 years alone buying collections from all over the world.

 

If you want to sell your posters to us outright and avoid consignment:

 

We guarantee that if we buy your posters from you, NO ONE WILL PAY YOU MORE FOR THEM THAN WE WILL.

 

The TRUE VALUE of any poster is primarily determined by it's condition, so we must first see your posters in person so we can see if they are original and see what shape they are in. Only then will we make you a firm offer.

 

We are terribly sorry, but it is no longer possible to give free appraisals on the phone or through email. We need to see posters in person before we will quote a price. If you send us pictures and ask "What will you pay for these?", we will not respond. You can either send us pictures with the prices you want or, you can send your posters to us for a free appraisal.

 

Please understand that it is just not possible for us to appraise posters accurately or to say if they are original or not on the phone or through email.

 

Please do not base your expectations on prices you see on this website. The prices here are retail. Sometimes we will pay up to 50% (or more) of our listed prices, but generally it will be less. This is what we (or anyone else) can get them for from poster wholesalers, auction houses, and on eBay. If it is a very valuable poster we will certainly pay more!

 

If you only have posters from the 1990's until now, please do not bother to contact us. We are sorry, but we will not be interested in them at all.

 

 

I'd like to send my posters to you, how do I proceed?

 

 

How much will we offer you in cash for your posters?

 

Our cash offer price will depend on several criteria: What condition is it in? How rare is the poster? How much can we buy it for on eBay or other auction sites when it becomes available? Do we have a waiting buyer for it? Do we already have one or more in stock? Is it a desirable poster that moves quickly? Generally (but not always) if we want a poster for our inventory we will pay what the poster normally sells for at auction. This could be as low as 30% of our website retail price or as high as 80% of our website retail price.

 

Please note that if you send us posters that we do not want (posters that are undesirable because they are unattractive, or because they are in bad shape), posters that are slow sellers, multiple copies of the same poster, or if we already have one or more in our inventory, our cash offer may be less than 30% of our website retail price.

 

Please note that posters with unattractive defects like large tears, stains, water damage, missing paper, fading, etc. will be worth just a fraction of what they would be without these defects. Posters in this condition may or may not be suitable for linen backing/restoration.

 

Please realize that we offer 3 options for selling your posters:

1. Auction Consignment

2. Fixed Price On Site Consignment

3. Cash

 

PLEASE BE AWARE: If you send us posters valued at less than $500.00 for Auction Consignment, please do NOT expect us to achieve a "retail" price for them when we auction them. Sometimes we do achieve retail (prices comparable to posters we have for sale at a fixed price on this site), but usually auction results are much less than these prices.

 

PLEASE DO NOT BE "DELUSIONAL"  Collectors usually think their posters are worth much more than they really are. Often times when we offer to buy posters for cash we hear "But that is half of what I bought it for" or "I saw it for sale on ebay for twice that amount". Please understand that anyone can put a high price on anything and try to sell it. Just because someone is asking $1000.00 for an item doesn't mean they won't sell it for $500.00. Also please understand that if we are buying your posters for cash we will be re selling them and need to make a profit.

 

Please be aware that most people with collections to sell do choose Auction or Fixed Price CONSIGNMENT rather than CASH because they will usually get MORE MONEY than if we purchase them.

 

After we evaluate your posters and quote you a price, in the unlikely event that you do not wish to sell us your posters or have us sell them for you, we will gladly ship them back to you.

 

If you only have posters from the 1990's until now, please do not bother to contact us. We are sorry, but we will not be interested in them at all.

 

Please email or call us at 602 309 0500 if you wish to submit your posters for a quick cash sale.

How do you know you can trust us?

 

 

Fixed Price On Site Consignment Fee is 25%

(for most items)

 

If you have a very large collection for on site consignment or a lot of very valuable posters to consign, please call us as the rate may be less.

 

Fixed Price On Site Consignment is only available for posters valued at $750.00 or more.

 

For lesser valued posters we offer AUCTION CONSIGNMENT or INSTANT CASH.

 

 

Yes, we do have posters listed at a Fixed Price for less than $750.00 on this website, however these are NOT on consignment, they are usually our own inventory.

 

We do not generally accept items listed at less than $750.00 for Fixed Price On Site Consignment. HOWEVER, in the rare instance that we do agree to list some of your items for less than $750.00, our consignment fee will be 40% instead of 25%.

 

Some consigned posters sell very quickly, and some can take awhile. There really is no way to know how long something will take to sell when we list it at a fixed price. If you submit your items to CineMasterpieces for Fixed Price On Site Consignment, you agree to allow us to list them for a minimum of 6 months.

 

 

We constantly get much higher prices than ANYBODY!

 

And we are not just saying that! We really do! We get higher prices than anyone on eBay and higher prices than ANY of the major auction houses! We buy posters from all the other poster auction companies (yes, ALL of them!) and re sell them here on this website (and in our eBay and Amazon stores) for MUCH more!

We will list your item for sale for 25% (or more) of what you want to get.

(This all depends on the item of course. Very high priced posters will be less.)

 

If you wish, no one will know that the item is yours when it is listed on our site.

 

There are no up front fees to list your item here.

 

We will deduct our consignment fee (25% or an amount we have both agreed upon) and send you the proceeds after the sale.

 

You can end the consignment at any time with no fee.

 

 

This is a NO RISK, EVERYONE WINS situation. While in our possession, your items are fully insured and stored in a highly secure fireproof facility.

 

Generally (compared to auctioning them on eBay) we can usually get much more for your items if they are for sale here on this website. 

 

The only potential downside to this option is that your posters may take a very long time to sell.

 

If you can wait, then this option may be for you. You can always cancel at any time (if they haven't sold after 6 months) and we can auction your items or ship them back to you.

 

If you have any posters you want to put on consignment, please contact us.

 

Call 602 309 0500 and ask for Dave, or email us a detailed list including the title, condition, and size of each poster. Also please tell us how much you want for them.

 

When you ship your posters to us, please follow these instructions.

 

We usually have to have possession of your posters to offer them for sale on our site. If we agree to list a poster for you and someone buys it from us, we will then send you the money (a price we have previously agreed upon). We will only send the money to you after it is certain that the buyer will not return it to us.

 

Please be aware that we have a no questions asked return policy. There is a less than 1% chance that an item will be returned to us after the sale.

 

How long will it take to sell my posters? When will you pay me for them?

 

If we are selling your posters in our Fixed Price On Site Consignment program, we usually process and get them listed on our website and on eBay and Amazon within just a few days of receiving them. Sometimes a poster sells within a few days, sometimes it can take several weeks or months, or even more than a year. After a poster sells (at a price you have approved) we usually wait about 2 weeks before sending you payment as we have to make sure the buyer is happy with their purchase.

 

 

Why do I need CineMasterpieces? Why can't I just sell my posters on eBay by myself?

 

Anyone can sell anything on eBay. Yes, you can probably sell your posters there yourself. But the truth is, you will not get anywhere near what we will and you will get MORE if you let us sell them for you. With our excellent reputation as a TOP RATED trusted Powerseller, and with our expert marketing including professional high resolution images......we get higher prices than anyone! Many buyers will not purchase high dollar posters on eBay from someone who doesn't have a stellar sales history and outstanding reputation in the poster world.

 

Also, please note that most of our high dollar sales are NOT on eBay, they occur directly on this website.

 

 

When will your item sell, how long will it take? What are the chances of it selling?

 

Some items sell immediately (within a few days), although this is highly unlikely. It usually takes several months, sometimes it can take more than a year. A poster has a greater chance of selling quickly if it has a striking image and if it has mass appeal, one that collectors and non collectors would desire. For example: The beautiful and highly sought after one sheet for Creature From the Black Lagoon has a better chance of selling quickly than a not very attractive (but quite rare) one sheet for The Ghoul, a 1930's movie that most people have never even heard of.

 

 

Why should you consign your items...and not try to sell them yourself?

Our Fees For

FIXED PRICE ON SITE CONSIGNMENT

 

For almost all posters, our ON SITE consignment fee is 25%.

 

For example, if you decide to consign a Cool Hand Luke 1sh and you want to get $1000 for it, we will list it on our site for at least $1250 (or more).

 

 

Fixed Price On Site Consignment Example:

 

A poster that sells for $2000.00

 

If your poster sells for $2000.00, CineMasterpieces will get 25% of the final sales price. You will receive 75% of the sales price less any eBay or AMAZON Final Value Fee (if it is sold in our eBay or AMAZON store there will be a Final Value Fee, if it is sold here on this website there is no Final Value Fee).

 

Final sales price                                      $2000.00

Our fee ($2000.00 x .25)                          $500.00   

Your total "take home"                              $1500.00*

 

*If it is sold in our eBay or AMAZON store there will be an additional fee of approximately 7 to 10%. There is NO initial listing fee to put it in our eBay or AMAZON store, there is only a Final Value Fee if we sell it there.

 


 

If you think our Fixed Price On Site Consignment fee of 25% is too high....think again!

  

For virtually ALL of our rare and very valuable posters we generally get MUCH HIGHER prices than High End Auction Houses get for the same material when we sell them at a Fixed Price on our website and in our eBay store.

 

Typical Auction Scenario

Lets say you have a one sheet for Breakfast at Tiffany's. If it's in great condition (C8 or better) it normally sells at these high end auctions for between $3000.00 to $4500.00 (hammer price, not including the buyer's premium). After the auction house fee (average 15%), you would walk away with approximately 85% of the hammer price - $2550.00 to $3825.00. Not bad, but not great either.

 

With CineMasterpieces Fixed Price On Site Consignment

We sell this poster at a retail price of between $7000.00 to $9000.00. So, after we sell yours, you will walk away with approximately 75% of the sales price - $5250.00 to $6750.00.

 

With CineMasterpieces Fixed Price On Site Consignment, you will walk away with approximately $DOUBLE!!

VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT

 


 

Information for potential buyers:

 

A poster listed as ON VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT  is a poster that we may be able to get for you at the listed price (or close to it). A virtually consigned poster is a very valuable poster that we do not have in stock. This is for when a poster collector has informed us that he/she has a particular poster and may be willing to sell it through us. We will broker the sale between you (the buyer) and the owner (seller) of the poster. We will provide you with hi resolution photos and a detailed condition description. We will only accept bank wire for payment. Once your payment has cleared we will ship you the poster fully insured or hand deliver it to you.

 

RETURN POLICY FOR POSTERS BOUGHT ON VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT

Posters bought through VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT can be returned within 7 days for any reason, however we will issue you FULL CREDIT ONLY towards the purchase of another poster or posters from us. No cash refunds for posters bought through VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT.

 

Please email or call us at 602 309 0500 if you wish to purchase a poster that we have on Virtual Consignment.

How do you know you can trust us?

 

 

Virtual Consignment is reserved only for posters worth $10,000.00 or more in value.

 

It is basically the same as Fixed Price On Site Consignment except we do not have your posters in our possession. You hold on to them until we have a buyer.

 

We will advertise your poster(s) here on this website at a fixed price that we both determine.

 

Our consignment fee is 25% if we sell your poster. There is no fee if we do not sell it. We will list it for FREE with no up front cost to you!!

 

You do not need to ship us your poster until we have a buyer! All we need up front is your contact information and a professional photo with accurate description. Once we have acquired funds from a buyer we will ask you to ship us the poster. We will inspect it and then ship or hand deliver it to the buyer. Once we are sure the buyer is satisfied we will immediately pay you. You need to be willing to ship us the poster prior to us paying you. For items worth $40,000.00 or more we can possibly arrange to meet you in person to exchange funds for the poster simultaneously.

 

We can not list a virtually consigned poster for sale in our eBay store as eBay forbids us from listing items we do not have in our possession.

 

Your name will not be associated in any way with the listing. You will remain anonymous, no one will know who's poster it is.

 

Potential buyers will be made very aware that we do not have your poster in our possession.

 

We kindly ask that you notify us immediately if you no longer own the poster so we can remove it from our site.

 

We kindly ask that you do not advertise the poster for sale anywhere else.

 

If we find a buyer for your poster and you decide you do not want to sell it, we will no longer wish to do business with you.

 

Please read all about the many advantages of our Fixed Price On Site Consignment program as it is very similar to Virtual Consignment.

 

When will your item sell, how long will it take? What are the chances of it selling? Some items sell immediately (within a few days), although this is highly unlikely. It usually takes several months, sometimes it can take more than a year. A poster has a greater chance of selling quickly if it has a striking image and if it has mass appeal, one that collectors and non collectors would desire. For example: The beautiful and highly sought after one sheet for Creature From the Black Lagoon has a better chance of selling quickly than a not very attractive (but quite rare) one sheet for The Ghoul, a 1930's movie that most people have never even heard of.

 

Virtual Consignment Example:

 

A poster that sells for $20,000.00

 

If your poster sells for $20,000.00, CineMasterpieces will get 25% of the final sales price. You will receive 75% of the sales price.

 

Final sales price                                     $20,000.00

Our fee ($20,000.00 x .25)                       $5,000.00   

Your total "take home"                             $15,000.00
