We Buy Vintage Posters

Instant Cash For Your Posters!

Does AAA Vintage Posters 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!

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.

 

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 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.

FIXED PRICE ON SITE CONSIGNMENT

For posters valued at $1000.00 or more

The Alternative to No Reserve Auctions

Please also see VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT – click here for details

With Fixed Price On Site Consignment you will receive the most money possible for your posters. It is a no risk, win/win situation! We do not auction your posters (and possibly risk selling them for less than you think they are worth), we advertise them for sale here on our website at a fixed RETAIL price. We also list them in our eBay Store and in our Amazon Store.

This website is one of the most visited websites in the world where vintage movie posters can be bought at a fixed price. We are extremely visible in Google and on eBay! Our listings appear all over eBay continuously.

High valued items get front page placement on this website.

Fixed Price On Site Consignment Fee is 25%
(for most items)

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

If your poster is sold in our eBay or AMAZON store there will be an additional fee of approximately 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.

Fixed Price On Site Consignment is only available for posters valued at $1000.00 or more.

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

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

In order for us to accept your posters for Fixed Price On site Consignment your posters MUST be in tip top condition or be restored/linen backed. If you submit posters to us with unsightly defects they will need to be restored before listing them at a fixed retail price.

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 and AMAZON stores.

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 AAA Vintage Posters 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 AAA Vintage Posters Fixed Price On Site Consignment, you will walk away with approximately $DOUBLE!!

Yes, we do have posters listed at a Fixed Price for less than $1000.00 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 $1000.00 for Fixed Price On Site Consignment. HOWEVER, in the rare instance that we do agree to list some of your items for less than $1000.00, 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 AAA Vintage Posters for Fixed Price On Site Consignment, you agree to allow us to list them for a minimum of 6 months.

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

Please email or call us at (657) 888-4170 if you wish to submit your posters for Fixed Price On Site Consignment.

With Fixed Price On Site Consignment:

Your posters are professionally photographed and described in detail.

You name the price you want, we will not sell your poster for less than an amount YOU decide.

If we receive an offer for less than the asking price we will contact you a.s.a.p. and help you make a decision.

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 (657) 888-4170 and ask for Steve, 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 AAA Vintage Posters? 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.

 

Our Fees For
FIXED PRICE ON SITE CONSIGNMENT

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

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 (657) 888-4170 if you wish to purchase a poster that we have on Virtual Consignment.

VIRTUAL CONSIGNMENT

For posters valued at $10,000.00 or more

Information for potential consignors (sellers):

Consign your valuable movie posters while keeping them with you, without sending them in!

With Virtual Consignment you keep your posters in your possession while we list them for sale here on this website. Here at AAA Vintage Posters you will receive the most money possible for your posters! It is a no risk, win/win situation! We do not auction your posters (and possibly risk selling them for less than you think they are worth), we advertise them for sale here on our website at a fixed RETAIL price.

 

 

High valued items get front page placement on this website.

 

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.

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.
