#CH096  - 1940s Western Cowboy Movie Posters Broadsides - As low as $1.25 each
These are paper Western movie posters/broadsides from the 1940s. If you order 30 or less, all will be different. If you order 80 of them, there will be at least 70 different. Size varies, up to 12" or more tall. Some are different widths. All of them feature famous cowboy movie stars of the era, and all have a similar look to the ones pictured. Old unused movie theatre stock. PLEASE NOTE - Many have edge roughness or small edge tears. They can all be trimmed to look great. All of these were found by Bob Secrist at a northern Ohio theatre many years ago. They served the theatre as handouts and broadsides/posters that would announce the latest cowboy movie at the theatre. They would tack them on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived except this large stash that Bob uncovered in the theatre storage area. He was one of the most respected and well known collectors in the country. We got these directly from his estate. They are much scarcer than lobby posters. We have them priced so low because there are a lot of them.  Over time, they will run low, and our prices will increase on them. These are great Americana pieces at silly low prices. Get them at these prices while you can.

#CH079 - Ken Maynard Trick Rope in Original Cellophane Package
Vintage 1940's Ken Maynard toy TRICK ROPE in original package. 11" wide package says "toy trick rope - with the patented embedded swivel". These are in their original cellophane packaging (which is quite brittle and has tears), but the card and rope are in perfect condition. Even has a fake autograph on it. The patent number on the card is from the mid 1930s, however, guaging by how old he looks in the picture, I'd guess they are from around 1940. With his white cowboy hat, fancy shirt, and pair of six-shooters, Maynard appeared in more than 90 films from the 1920s to the mid-1940s before his career was ended by alcoholism. This was a warehouse find, but it wasn't huge and these won't be around forever. Trick ropes were sold by a lot of cowboy movie stars during this time period and usually go for $100 or more. This is a great item.
$12.00



#ZLC095 - Venice Cove Crate Label with Rooster
Vintage 11" wide Pride of Venice Cove California Red Ball orange crate label. This is a great label for framing with a rooster and oranges pictured. Beautiful colors. These will brighten up a kitchen. They are unused stock from the Klink Citrus Association in Ivanhoe, CA. Got these from a kindred spirit who also loves looking for old store stock. I got him hooked on this stuff 20 years ago and he has been looking for it ever since. This is one of several outstanding labels he has been able to procure.

##MUSICBG0030 - 1940s Opera News Magazine

Vintage 8 3/4 - 10" tall (depending on which issue) 1940s Opera News magazine. They show some typical aging but are in nice shape. These are uncommon and often go for $5 each and up on Ebay. Some go for a lot more depending on who is on the cover. We have several different ones and don't know one from another. No special requests please. You may get the real high dollar one. Hard to tell. Opera News was founded in 1936 by the Metropolitan Opera Guild with Mrs. John DeWitt (Mary Ellis Peltz) serving as the publication's first editor. It was initially intended to be a "useful, instructive, and factual weekly newspaper of Opera in New York". Its first issue was published on 7 December 1936 and consisted of only one folded broadsheet.

#CH326-01  - Roy Rogers "Don't Fence Me In" Movie Poster Broadside
Vintage 13" tall paper movie poster/broadside from the Roy Rogers 1945 "Don't Fence Me In" movie. The movie also featured Gabby Hayes and Dale Evans who are pictured along with Roy. Please click the picture to see a more detailed image. The song was number one on the charts and put Roy Rogers on the map. These are nice. Back in the day, when a new movie was going to play at the local theatre, there would be a guy who would run around town tacking these things on bulletin boards, telephone poles, fence posts, or anyplace else where they might be seen. Because most were outdoors, few have survived. Some will have small edge tears or roughness, but this is true of all paper movie broadsides, and they can easily be trimmed for framing. Although, a few small imperfections kind of adds to the look with these. Colors vary. We got them from the estate of famous dealer and friend Bob Secrist. He found them in the storage area of an old theatre up in Northeast Ohio.
