VAST ACCUMULATION OF STUFF SALE 9/1/15

Welcome to my first online VAST ACCUMULATION OF STUFF sale in quite some times. These sales will generally post every two weeks to give me time to ship out all the orders.
                             
Here’s how my online sales work...

First come, first serve. In other words, the quicker you e-mail me, the better your chances of getting the item or items.  Only e-mail orders will be accepted and you should not send payment until you get a confirmation e-mail from me.  All listed items are in good or better condition unless otherwise noted.

Let me stress that “e-mail only” rule.  Most of the few mistakes I have made in assembling/shipping orders have happened with orders I accepted via phone or Facebook message.  So I’m not gonna break my own rule anymore.

You should always include your mailing address with your orders. That speeds up the packaging and the shipping.

Items will be shipped via United States Postal Service.  There is a $5 shipping/handling charge for all orders of any size unless I specify otherwise in the item description. If your total order is over $100, shipping is free.

Payments are by check, money order or PayPal.  My PayPal address is the same as my email address.  Purchases will generally be shipped within a week of checks clearing,  money orders received or PayPal payments received.

Because this is a one-man operation done between family, household  and work responsibilities, these items are only available to buyers within the United States and to APO buyers.

When you receive your order, please check it and let me know of any omissions as soon as possible.  I’ll be double-checking the orders on my end, but, if there’s a problem, I want to make it right in a timely fashion.

Items will only be offered online once or twice before going into my future garage sales.

As always, your orders are greatly appreciated.

This sale runs from today through Friday, August 10, 2015.

Here are this week’s items...

1988 DOUBLE-SIDED SUPERMAN POSTER. Superman - The Legend Returns is a rare double-sided poster honoring Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, created by a Cleveland organization to celebrate the Man of Steel’s fiftieth anniversary and to recognize his creators, Cleveland high- schools buddies Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. The poster (18 inches x 37 inches) is in mint, rolled condition printed on thickly coated stock to allow for printing on both sides. One side shows Clark Kent inside a phone booth urgently ripping off his street clothes with a small tribute panel to Siegel and Shuster at the bottom. The other side shows Superman taking flight in Cleveland. I have seen this poster priced anywhere from $30 to hundreds of dollars. While my limited supply lasts, I’m selling them for $25 each, including shipping and handling. Since the sturdy mailing tube can hold more than one poster. You can get a second poster for an additional $5. That’s $25 for one poster, $30 for two posters.
