Welcome to my Movie Poster Collection Web site.
There is no real purpose other than to share my poster collection with anyone who might be interested in looking at movie posters. I'm not a seller so none of the posters are necessarily for sale. I say 'necessarily' because you never say never if some 'offer I can't refuse' type comes along.
The event that gave me the collecting itch happened back in 1980 when I happened upon James Bond reissue posters at a local comic book shop. I immediately purchased 'Dr. No', 'Goldfinger' and 'Diamonds are Forever'. In the early days, I was only interested in collecting posters from my favorite movies. But that quickly changed when I found a movie memorabilia shop called 'Stage and Screen' owned by Guy Steele near downtown Dallas Texas. That store became my main poster source until 1999 when I joined Ebay. The selection, availability and convenience of Ebay allowed for quick acquisition of posters at reasonable prices. So as a result, my collection has grown to over 1400.
The emphasis of this collection is on 60s - 80s, crossing all genres. I grew up in the 60s so it makes sense that it would be my favorite decade. Obviously, there is a heavy nostalgic motivation to this type of collecting. Regarding poster types, one sheets (41x27) and inserts (14x36) are the only sizes I collect, with 90% being one sheets. The majority are U.S. with some international and Australian one sheets sprinkled in.
I strictly collect originals, however there are a few exceptions, 6 to be exact. If original, they each are multi thousand dollar posters. I include them here because they are classic and I probably won’t be able to afford them anytime soon.
The year listed under each poster is the release year of the movie except for combo posters. For those, it is the year the poster was issued.
This site is a work in progress. Poster dates and info will be updated when inaccuracies are found.
