Profiles in History made a surprise guest appearance at this year’s Comic Con to shower all the fellow collectors with movie posters, lobby cards, and a variety of other ephemera.
The items came from the personal collection of Morris Everett, Jr., a big name in movie poster collecting but Everett was otherwise anonymous to the rest of the world. His collection of movie memorabilia, stills, and rare images is considered to be the largest of its kind in the whole world.
When Everett hit a rough patch financially his collection was there to bail him out. He supplied the major publications with the star studded photos they wanted for a hefty price tag.
Who knows, maybe the collection you enjoy now could help you out later.
