Movie Poster Collection For Sale

I received word that there is a large movie poster collection up for sale and looking for a good home. Due to the volume of the collection and THS’s limited space as well as THS’s policies, THS is not interested in purchasing this collection. (Movie posters do not correspond with the primary scope of the Archives as laid out in the THS Collection Policy and/or for THS’s main purpose as laid out in Article II Section 1 of the THS Bylaws.)

However, some of you may find this interesting and/or know of a good home for these posters. THS has no connection with the seller. Please direct any questions, comments, etc. about the collection to the seller. Contact information is below.

    Whoever appraised that collection must have fallen no their head. It is not worth anywhere near 3.5 million. In fact, I doubt it is worth even 1/2 a million. Of course I could be wrong, but I think they are in for a rude surprise.
