    Thanks for the comments and compliments. No not much time but i like being active, didn't realize all the work but its going good. I i get in the area i'll get a hold of you. I did see the post and thought it was really neat, glad to see that you were able to score a couple killer signs from there too.
    Thanks everyone,
    Robert

    Nice posters, you should have them all professionally linen backed immediately. These posters could bring over $1k each at auction depending on their condition after mounting. Nice find!

    Wow that's great to hear i have already planned on going to have them professionally framed this weekend. They are all in great condition.

    Thanks much,

    I'd do some more research before you put out the money to linen back these.

    Here is one that appears to be from the same series that brought $72:

    I would think the Vegas one is more desirable than SD.

    Scott, thanks for the info and the link. Even if they were worthless I'm still gonna have them framed for preservation as i really enjoy the artwork and they will look great in my room.

    Thanks,
    Robert

    I think that they are far from worthless-- they are a great find.

    Linen backing usually costs at least a couple hundred dollars and doesn't leave much room for a return when you are talking about a $75 poster (Paris example).
