ONE SHEET ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER. If it has any minor defects like pin holes, creases, etc. And they are not mentioned above, they should be visible in the high resolution photo. WE DO NOT SELL REPRODUCTIONS OF ANY KIND. Perfect for a high end home theater.
Highly sought after by movie poster collectors and aficionados. This is a genuine 27" x 41" U. One Sheet ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released in 1942 and meant for theatrical display. All original material on Casablanca is scarce and very rarely surfaces for sale. Of the most sought after posters in the hobby, this one sheet's deceptively simple layout of six key scenes swirling around a radiant Ingrid Bergman, protected by a trench coated, gun wielding, ultimate anti-hero, Humphrey Bogart, is the work of the legendary designer, Bill Gold.
No one can say with any degree of certainty how many of these still exist. For what it's worth, our professional opinion is that there are no more than 30 to 50 of these left on our planet. Comes with a CineMasterpieces Certificate of Authenticity. This is a vintage original poster from 1942. All original paper from this film is highly sought after by collectors.
This poster is NOT FRAMED. These can be very difficult to find in any condition! A long time can go by without one of these coming up for sale.You will have trouble finding a nicer one. In fantastic shape for a 75 year old poster. This poster is not in perfect shape and has a series of minor defects including small edge tears, small edge chips, minor wrinkles, small stains, and cross fold separations. It can easily be made to appear near mint to mint if it is linen backed. If a vintage poster is in terrific unrestored condition like this one, many experienced collectors will place a premium on it (when compared to a linen backed/restored one). Most experienced collectors prefer unrestored items to restored ones because they believe they will appreciate more in value.
This poster is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY. A perfect candidate for Linen Backing, although it is not necessary as this poster displays beautifully as is. If you want this poster to appear as near perfect as possible with no fold lines and any imperfections fixed, you may want to get it linen backed. This is NOT a reprint or reproduction poster! It is a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the "other company" when the film was released and meant for theatrical display.
We are absolutely certain it is authentic. Please be advised that over 95% of all Original Movie Posters. Printed before the mid 1980's were issued FOLDED.This is NOT considered a defect. Vintage rolled posters do exist, however they are extremely rare. We can have any folded poster. Which will make the fold lines virtually disappear. Also please note that most movie posters were actually used at the theater, and some will contain slight imperfections such as: writing on the back, pin holes, fold wear, small tears, etc. These are all very common and to be expected, but if they bother you, all these minor flaws can be remedied in the linen backing process.
Linen Backing preserves and can actually increase the value of a poster. For the most part, any flaws will be fixed and the poster will appear to be in Near Mint condition. For more information about our. We do not always measure all of our posters exactly. Unless otherwise specified, poster measurements quoted above are approximate to the nearest inch.
For example, if we say a one sheet poster is 27" x 41" its precise measurements may be closer to 26 3/4" x 40 7/8" (or something similar). This slight variance is quite common for all original movie posters. BEWARE OF "FAKE" MOVIE POSTERS! There are fakes, bootlegs, reprints, and reproductions of almost every popular movie poster.WE DO NOT SELL THESE AS ORIGINALS LIKE OTHERS DO! There are many unscrupulous dealers who successfully pass off these posters as originals. They have been doing it for years! These fakes are almost indistinguishable from originals, only experts can tell. They only discover years later when they sell them that they are worthless. Most are from popular movies from the 70's and 80's, but there are also really old ones and relatively new ones as well.
They usually appear in insert size 14" x 36" and one sheet size 27" x 41". Again, all we can say is BEWARE! We grade our posters according to the Iguide Universal 10-Point Movie Poster Grading Scale.Almost all of our inventory is graded at least C8 Excellent or better. 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. Pin holes, small tears, etc. C7 Very Good to Excellent - Fine. 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. Some of our posters are "between grades". For example, a C8-C9 poster will contain all the qualities/characteristics of a Near Mint C9 except for one or two very minor flaws that we believe prevent it from being a true C9.
Sometimes it isn't possible to do this. Sometimes we can't roll a folded poster. Please note that if we hold your items for longer than 30 days they will NOT BE RETURNABLE.
