May 12-19 Movie Poster Archives, the industry’s non-profit archival organization is holding another Lagniappe auction! Over the last 4 years, MPA has received over 750,000 items as tax deductible donations from collectors, dealers, individual donors, estates and businesses.
Once MPA has the items needed for documentation on a particular title, any duplicates of that particular item can be sold to help create needed funding (we call “Lagniappe”). Since all items are received for archival purposes, no value is assigned, therefore all items will start at the same low price with no reserve no matter the value of the item. As a non-profit, MPA can not lose money on a project so the labor and storage cost have been assessed to give a starting price of $3 on every item, no matter the value.
You can help us eliminate some of our excess material and take advantage of some fantastic bargains!
We have 400+ lots that are primarily focused on lobby card sets, presskit still sets, studio issued tv show promotional sets, with some pressbooks, one sheets, and a variety of oddities and miscellaneous items.
MPA will be using Bidding For Good auction site which is a special auction house for non-profit organizations. You must register in advance to be able to bid, so go register NOW!! And receive updates for early viewing. Here are some samples of the items to be presented:
