Re: Star Wars Posters

Hopefully your friend came out ahead and made money on the transaction. It makes me wonder, though, why the original owner didn’t just sell the posters himself? He came out way ahead. He gets people that need fast money. Many do pay off the loan but some are never seen again. In the case of the pos...

Re: Star Wars Posters

Cool--and in great condition, too! Wonder how much that would bring at auction? Probably not very much. Used cakes tend to have very low resale values. :birthdaycake: That, and the collectibles around it aren't still in the original packaging. Research indicates the movie poster is valued at $2,500...

Re: Where Is Everybody?

After fifteen years on Maui we decided to return to the Mainland. It boiled down to been there, done that, got the t-shirt. We're now in Southern Oregon.
