"YOU'LL SHOOT YOUR EYE OUT, KID!"

Thisis a beautiful example of an original 27"x41" U.S. one sheet movieposter from the classic "A CHRISTMAS STORY". These are very difficultto find in any condition!

Along time can go by without one of these coming up for sale. Gentlyused and well preserved. Graded C8-C9 Excellent to Near Mint condition.Would be near mint except for two tiny pieces of tape on top corners.No tears or pinholes! You will have trouble finding a nicer one.

Ifa vintage poster is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EXC8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it(when compared to a linen backed/restored one). Most experiencedcollectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because theybelieve they will appreciate more in value.

Whenbuying collectibles it is always wise to buy "the best of the best" asthey stand a greater chance of appreciation. This poster is consideredto be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY.

An iconic image.
Beautiful artwork.
Bright vivid colors.

There are known reprints and/or reproductions of this poster. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM!!

This is guaranteed to be a genuine ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by thestudio when the film was first released and meant for theatricaldisplay.

We are absolutely certain it is authentic.

Comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from CineMasterpieces.

This poster has sold for over $700.00. We offer this one at NO RESERVE!!

Pleasebe aware that most original movie posters issued before the mid 1980'swere issued FOLDED (over 95%). This is NOT considered a defect. Theywere shipped to theaters this way. Vintage rolled posters do exist,however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster LINENBACKED which will make the fold lines virtually disappear.

Alsoplease note that most movie posters were actually used at the theaterand some will contain slight imperfections like writing on the back,pin holes, fold wear, etc. These are all very common and to beexpected, but, if they bother you, all these minor flaws can beremedied in the linen backing process. LINEN BACKINGpreserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the mostpart any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in NearMint condition. For more details on Linen Backing please email us orcall 602 309 0500 and ask for Dave.

Unlessotherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximateto the nearest inch. For example, if we say a poster is 27"x41" itsprecise measurements may be something like 26 3/4" x 40 7/8". This isquite common for all original movie posters.

BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS!!

Thereare bootlegs, reprints, reproductions, re-strikes, re-issues, etc. allover ebay. WE DO NOT SELL THESE! There are many unscrupulous dealerswho successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have beendoing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable fromoriginals, only experts can tell. Many who buy them don't know theyhave been taken, only years later when they sell them do they find outthey are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and80’s. They usually appear in insert size 14x36 and one sheet size27x41. These posters can be found from dealers who seem trustworthybecause of their great feedback. Again, all we can say is BEWARE!! Formore information please see our EBAY GUIDES link above.

We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale which is summarized below:

    C10 Mint - Investment quality. No perceptible flaws of any kind.
    C9 Near Mint - Investment quality. Minor flaw on an otherwise unused poster.
    C8 Excellent - Investment quality. A few minor defects.
    C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine condition. Still a very nicely preserved item.
    C6 Very Good - The typical used poster in average condition.
    C5 Good to Very Good - A heavily-worn item.
    C4 Good - Below average but still suitable for display.
    C3 Fair - Heavily worn, but yet still complete.
    C2 Poor to Fair - An extremely worn, possibly even incomplete item.
    C1 Poor - The lowest grade, representing items in the lowest possible condition.

    For details on this grading system please see our Ebay Guide GRADING / CONDITION.

    Someof our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster willcontain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except forone or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being atrue C9.

    HOW WE PACKAGE OUR POSTERS

    Wetake extra special care when we package your item. For folded posterswe put them in a plastic bag or envelope and in between two or fourpieces of STRONG cardboard and tape it together before placing in theshipping envelope/box. We stamp “DO NOT BEND” all over the outside ofthe package. For rolled posters we put them in a STRONG 3” or greaterdiameter tube with thick walls at least 3/16” or 1/4“ or thicker. Weroll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube. This is VERYIMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent themfrom getting wrinkled. We then wrap with paper or plastic and tape itclosed and put soft cushioning material (also very important!) on theends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp “FRAGILE: DO NOTBEND” all over the outside of the package.
