WHAT'S FOR SALE ON THE MOVIE POSTER DATA BASE?
We are busy working with our great sponsors and dealers to bring
you the best selection of movie posters for sale on the internet.
The MPDB is just a few months old, and we already have over 3,000
posters for sale. Our ultimate goal is to have the complete inventory
of each of our sponsors and dealers in the MPDB -- literally offering
tens of thousands of posters for sale daily.
How do collectors navigate such a large site? We have created an
page that allows visitors to sort by size, country, etc. There is
also a sort by dealer.
By coupling this large selection with the extensive research and
reference information that we provide FREE to our collectors, we create
a safe environment for collectors to come research and then buy their
posters without fear of misrepresentation or fraud.
if you don't see the title you're looking for,
we will help you find it. We have added a special email address,
on the top of each title, which you can use to let us know what
you're looking for. Let us do the hunting for you. We've got
the best dealers in the world at our fingertips!
WANT TO BE A PART OF THE FUTURE
OF MOVIE POSTER COLLECTING?
Most collectors and dealers recognize that the
world of movie poster collecting must change -- and we hope
to be a major contributor. Our mission is to: (1) provide free
research and reference information on collecting; archive EVERY
image we can locate in our Movie Poster Data Base; and provide
a place where collectors can buy with confidence, knowing they
are dealing with the best dealers in the industry. Would you
like to be a part of the future of our hobby?
Our site is sponsor driven -- you see the ads
on every page. After merging our Data Base with our Reference
Section, we created 10 available ad spots. Most of these went
quickly -- but we do have two stationary ad spots and one rotating
banner available. If you are interested in acquiring one of
these ad spaces, click HERE.
We also offer an opportunity for reputable dealers
to list their inventory in our MPDB. To see the details and

WE'RE BACK, WE'RE RESTED,
AND WE'RE READY FOR BIG THINGS
IN THE YEAR 2004
By: Susan Poole
After two grueling years of 12-16 hour days, 7
days a week, my daughter Sarah and her husband Mark made us an
offer we couldn't refuse -- a week in a cabin in the Smoky Mountains.
The year 2003 marked two milestones in our lives: in March we
celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary; on November 14th, I reached
the big 5-0. To celebrate, Sarah and the rest of the family decided
to take us back to the place of our honeymoon - the Smoky Mountains.
We often spoke of returning but never did.
It was a great trip -- we had a beautiful cabin
up in the mountains of outside of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We spent
most of our time sitting on a swing on the second floor porch,
although we did do some sightseeing. I have posted some photos
, if anyone would like to see them.
Be sure to check out our inventory
liquidation sale in Susie's Corner. We will be
adding new items weekly.

BABE RUTH MOVIE POSTER SELLS FOR
part of Heritage Galleries $4 million popular culture auction
November 20-23, held in Arlington, Texas in conjunction with WizardWorld
Texas, the Vintage Movie Posters section was highlighted by a rare
example of the one-sheet version of The Babe Comes Home, pictured
on the left, realized $138,000 in spirited bidding.
The poster was purchased by William Hughes, a well-known
collectibles dealer and movie poster collector, according to Heritages
movie posters expert, Grey Smith, who added, We had several
bidders just below him, all well into the six-figure range.
According to Hughes, This was a poster I had coveted
for a long time, and I had unsuccessfully tried to buy the only other
known copy many years ago. I was very excited when I saw that the
piece showed up at the Heritage auction. Their catalog description
and photography made it practically irresistible, and Heritage is
also very easy to work with. Im just thrilled that I finally
own this poster.
