I was recently gifted a huge lot of movie posters from my dads friend. He owned a video store and literally kept every poster he was ever sent. Starts in the late 70's and goes up until 2010 when he sold the store.
Any help from the forum would be greatly appreciated. I have 3 main questions.
Are video store posters worth much?
i was reading that it is the ones in the theatre that catch a big price. These were all sent to the store free for promotional use.
How should I store them?
They are all rolled up with about 10 in each. He had them stored upright when I collected them. I feel this will damage the edges and am thinking I should put them on their side. i would love to tube each of them but from my estimation there are probably 7000 of them there and that's a heck of a lot of tubs lol.
if movie store posters are worth anything, should I sell them as a lot or individually?
i will definetly pick out some of my fave movies to keep but the sheer number is a bit overwhelming. There are a ton of titles I don't know and I have no idea how to appraise them.
thank you for any input you may have for this new to poster collecting noob.
