What is Guided Navigation?
Guided navigation is the ability to add and remove keywords and/or categories of items to filter results to help drill down to what you are searching for. As you add these filters, they appear in the 'breadcrumb trail' above your search results. You may add a filter(s) or you may remove any filter from your 'breadcrumb trail', at any time, just by clicking on it.

How do I narrow my search?

You can add a filter(s) located in the left column, such as 'Category,' 'Current Bid Range,' 'Reserve Status,' 'Grade Range' and so on, just by clicking on them. If you want to just search for a title, remove the check in the 'Titles & Descriptions' by clicking on it.

Sometimes searching on a new selection will open up new sub-selection possibilities. For example, you choose to look for a poster graded between Fine and Very Fine. When your search results come up, you can then narrow your search to a single grade. Just remember each time you add a filter, the listing of results will become smaller, showing only those items that meet all the criteria you have selected. Once you have an initial set of results, narrow your search using whatever criteria best fits what you want to see.

You may also enter keyword(s) or keyword string(s), such as 'The Godfather', to help narrow your search or you can think of the one search word that best describes the item you are looking for. Maybe it's a title, like Dracula, or even a date and title (1931 Dracula). If you're looking for an item from a film with a long title, enter the one or two words from the title that are most unique. For example, a search for 'Mad World' is all you need in order to find something from 'It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.' To find something from 'The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly', searching for 'Good Ugly' should be enough. Also, when you are specifically looking for a poster from a re-released movie, enter the year of re-release as R-xxxx. For example, you're looking for a poster from the 1951 re-release of Dracula; you enter 'Dracula R-1951'.

How to Target Your Search -
Using quotation marks around your search phrase can help narrow your results to exactly what you are interested in. A search for 'The Candidate' without quotation marks will return all results that contain both of the words 'The' or 'Candidate'. Please note that in order to get all results that contain either of the words 'The' and 'Candidate', you would use the following search string (without quotation marks): 'The or Candidate'

A search for "The Candidate", in quotation marks, gives you all results with the exact phrase 'The Candidate', in that order, leaving out any unwanted additions such as 'Manchurian'.

I don't see the category (filter) I am looking for in the Guided Navigation -

The guided navigation section only lists categories that contain content. For example, if you are looking at all auction items in Near Mint to Mint grade, then the category filters will only include items in that grade range.


To expand your list of categories, just remove the grade filter from your breadcrumb trail by clicking on it.

When using more than one search word, try using "OR" and "NOT" -
If you want to include descriptive parameters or exclude them in your search, try using "OR" and "NOT". When you use multiple search words, the search results are trying to find items with ALL of those words in the description.

Example: If you're interested in all items from 1931 or relating to Dracula you can enter '1931 OR Dracula'< />




Example: If you're interested in all items relating to Dracula but not from 1931 you can enter '1931 Not Dracula'

Changing Keywords -
Guided navigation has a one 'search phrase' filter. If you add a search phrase to narrow your results, that phrase will appear in the breadcrumb trail and it will also be saved (& visible) in the 'Narrow Your Results More by keyword'. Whatever you put in that field will become your new keyword search filter when you hit the "go" button.




For example, if you had searched on 'war' and you want to add 'worlds', you would put 'war worlds' in the keyword field. Putting just 'worlds' in that field will change your keyword from "war" to "worlds" and would pull everything that had just the keyword 'worlds' in it.




Back to Top

How do I expand my search?
You can add/remove search fields or keywords from your results at any time. Above your search results is the complete list of filters you have selected with a big red 'X' in front of each filter.

Since you want to expand your search, click on a filter to remove it, and your search will automatically refresh to show all items matching your new, broader search filters.

Swapping from Bid/Buy to Appraise and why you might want to -
After you have narrowed your search to what you are looking for and verified the item you are directly interested in, you may wonder how much the item has been sold for in the past. You can easily switch (just a click) to Appraise and check out what the same or similar items have sold for previously. Your search filters follow you and you can conveniently shift back and forth between Bid/Buy (our current or upcoming auction inventory) and Appraise (our auction archives).



On the left side, just below search tips, is either Bid/Buy or Appraise Movie Posters (depending on whether you are currently looking in the database or active auctions). In the above example, the appraise window will tell you how many matches were found in our database, so you may do a comparison. In the below example, we started in our database and can switch to Bid/Buy to see the poster in our upcoming auction, but either way, it is a great value added tool for your use!

Avoid punctuation marks unless required -
Don't use commas, periods, dashes, etc., unless required. One example, as in a proper name, is Spider-Man.

You can add the particular item(s) you are interested in to your "MyWantList" and you'll be notified as soon as an item on your 'want list' becomes available.
