DON’T BE A VICTIM … OF MERCENARY MOVIE POSTER (MP) PRICING!
+ Can I have a moment of your time? WAAAY back in 2010 I created www.moviepostercollectors.guide, a 100% nonprofit site, to educate new MP collectors. It features 50+ “easy-to-understand” illustrated MP authentications, a “fair and balanced” buying guide, many HQ MP images, etc. It - hopefully - has helped out many new/naïve collectors.
+ So how do YOU avoid “walking the plank” built by poster pirates?
+ FIRST, to determine FMV consult the terrific auction history sections of BOTH www.HA.com (HA) and www.Emovieposter.com (EMP) – eBay’s is too limited - as explained here: www.moviepostercollectors.guide/Valuation.html.
+ SECOND, winning auctions at FMV or below is the cheapest way to buy MPs, so check the pending MP auctions as explained here: www.moviepostercollectors.guide/Buying_Guide.html
+ THIRD, if the MP you are seeking is not currently being auctioned, JUST WAIT for the next time! Monitor the auctions and put it on a permanent watch/search list (varies by auction site.
+ NEXT, if waiting fails, search the “buy it now” (BIN) offerings on eBay AND from “reasonable” dealers. Make an offer based on your FMV research and TRANSMIT SCREENSHOTS of sold comparable items.
+ AVOID sellers/dealers who routinely sell for MORE than THREE TIMES FMV. They knowingly fleece new/naïve/lazy MP buyers! As examples, these are the highest-priced recent BIN U.S. sales and MANY (not all) were rip-offs: https://www.ebay.com/b/Original-US-Movie-Posters/18829/bn_16564129?rt=nc&LH_BIN=1&_dmd=2&_sop=16&LH_Sold=1
+ Pay by credit card/PayPal so it will be easy to get refunds for dubious/damaged/misrepresented MPs. See my authentications: www.moviepostercollectors.guide/Authentications.html.
+ Finally, please share this post with others, cut and paste it to other forums, AND refer www.moviepostercollectors.guideto MP newbies.
