In the article about Beatles memorabilia we made mention of vintage posters and one of the things that more and more people are collecting and investing in nowadays is vintage posters. This is evident by a recent auction of vintage movie posters held in Texas by Heritage Auction Galleries, which brought in more $1.75 million. We donít know if the prices will remain constant with the economy tanking, but from all indications in our online research, vintage posters are at least holding steady for now and we believe it is because of the wide audience that vintage posters have.
Whether you are just a collector interested in starting your own collection or you are in it for investment purposes, there are a few things that you should consider before getting into this field. First and foremost, if you are a collector for pleasure, one thing to consider is where and how will you display these posters? Large posters obviously take up a lot of room. A second consideration whether you are a collector or investor, and probably your most important decision is which genre I want to collect.
There are hundreds of genres; vintage movie posters, horror, paintings and art, political and natural history are just a few. Keep in mind, that if you buy these as an investment you might get stuck with them later, so you may as well buy posters of a genre you donít mind keeping for yourself. Lastly, make sure that you are getting the original posters and not a reproduction. Unfortunately, the vintage poster market is one where reproductions run rampant, so do your research before you buy.
