Perfect for a high end home theater. Highly sought after by movie poster collectors and aficionados. Lieberman is the owner and founder of CineMasterpieces. David is a recurring expert featured on The History Channel TV show Pawn Stars.This is a beautiful example of an original 45" x 59" U. Subway two sheet movie poster issued by the studio when the film was released and meant for display on mass transit subway systems. These are very difficult to find in any condition.
You will have trouble finding a nicer one. An extremely popular and very rare HORIZONTAL format American movie poster.
Subway sheets are printed on a thicker paper than one-sheets. Most contain the same artwork as the advance materials, and are almost always issued as advances. They are most often found in subway displays. These posters can be either rolled or folded. Some collectors like the subway sheet because there are fewer of them released.They are somewhat large and cumbersome, but because they are printed on a thick paper, they are more durable. HIGHLY DESIRED DUE TO ITS HORIZONTAL FORMAT AND EXTREME SCARCITY. No tape, no pin holes. A perfect candidate for Linen Backing. If a vintage poster is in terrific unrestored condition like this one (EX C8 or better), many experienced collectors will place a premium on it. They prefer unrestored items because they believe they will appreciate more in value. This poster is considered to be within that class and is definitely INVESTMENT QUALITY. There are known reprints and / or reproductions of this poster. This is NOT a reprint or reproduction poster! It is guaranteed to be a REAL ORIGINAL MOVIE POSTER issued by the studio when the film was released.
We are absolutely certain it is authentic. Please read all of the information below before purchasing. 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 Linen Backed 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. 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.
We only use the strongest packaging materials available. Rolled posters are put into a plastic sleeve and then placed in a HEAVY-DUTY thick walled 3" or 4" diameter plastic tube. We roll the poster into a smaller diameter than the tube.
This is VERY IMPORTANT because it gives the edges strength and helps to prevent them from getting wrinkled. We add soft cushioning material on the ends to prevent them from getting damaged. We stamp "FRAGILE: DO NOT BEND" on the outside of the package.
You must notify us before sending it back. Let us sell your posters for you! We guarantee that all posters we sell are graded and described accurately. Unless otherwise specified in the description, all posters are original theatrical movie posters that were displayed (gently used) or meant for display (unused) in theaters at the time the movies were released.
We will put in writing that we guarantee it to be an original movie poster. This item is in the category "Entertainment Memorabilia\Movie Memorabilia\Posters\Originals-United States\1980-89". The seller is "cinemasterpieces" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped worldwide.
