The movie poster and tv/film memorabilia marketplace continues to produce strong results with key titles, unique pieces and condition all playing their part in attracting high results.
At Excalibur Auction’s recent sale on 15th September, popular genres such as James Bond pulled in the bidders, with “For Your Eyes Only” and “Moonraker” UK Quad posters achieving £320 and £280 respectively (inc. buyers premium).
Also featuring in the key titles was a superb example of a pre-Academy Awards version of the iconic original 1977 Star Wars Movie Poster which achieved a stellar price of just over £2800 including premium, matching, we believe, the highest price a regular folded example of this poster has achieved in auction in the UK.
The Pit and the pendulum
Our Horror section continued to perform well, and a rare UK Quad for “The Pit and the Pendulum” found a buyer at just over £700 including premium.
Thunderbirds are go!
However, the award for the quirkiest lot of the day had to go to the small selection of plaster cast heads of Thunderbirds puppets, including Parker, Scott & Virgil Tracey, and purportedly cast from the original puppet heads of the 1960’s TV series. Presented with a modest estimate of £80-120 they found a happy new owner at £175 including premium.
Excalibur’s next Movie and TV Memorabilia sale is on 24th November and we are accepting entries now.
