Collecting movie posters is one of the most popular areas of collecting among movie memorabilia collectors. Many people exclusively collect posters, and prefer to avoid all other movie collectibles even. Posters have been printed to promote movies in theaters for nearly a hundred years. The fact that most posters are thrown out or destroyed with time, has made many once common posters now invaluable. A traditional movie poster's value is largely determined primarily by its condition relative to its scarcity. There does exist a rare breed of posters where condition is a secondary concern to actually finding the posters. These are the rarest posters of all; the ones featured in movies on screen themselves. Movie productions often make posters to represent fictitious movies, or events. Such posters are seen by millions on screen in theaters. Screen used movie posters and prototype movie posters are part of a niche area of collecting that few realize even exists. This area of movie poster collecting features posters that are truly the most rare and exotic movie posters that one can own in the world. This area of collecting falls under the category of production used hollywood memorabilia, which movieprop.com documents to the fullest degree possible in its Prop and Costume Collecting section. There one will find information about this unique collectible field including dealers and collectors that often have or sell this rare type of collectible. In addition the site's e-mail newsletter provides the best current news information about prop and costume collecting.
Below are pictures of two exotic movie posters which can be seen on screen in their various productions.
