Product Conditions

The following condition information is provided as a guide only in our best efforts to help bidders make buying decisions. All items are sold As-Is.

  • Signed Warhol and Rauschenberg posters have been stored in flat file cabinets and have been well maintained.
  • Unsigned Warhol and Rauschenberg posters, as well as other large volume vintage posters (older than 2000), have been stored in rolled bundles. These quantity lots will include a blend of conditions as noted below.
  • Quantity lots of posters after 2000 are generally stored and wrapped in flat bundles and, as such, are generally in A condition, unless noted otherwise on the Lot.
  1. Items appear in good condition, free from tears or creases, though some minor handling wear may exist given the vintage nature of the product;
  2. Items show edge wear as well as some minor handling wear and dust, but are generally in good condition;
  3. items have creases, tears or have been stored in rolls which have experienced various degrees of flattening

Note large quantity lots may be noted as Mixed A/B or Mixed B/C, etc.; In such cases, we have attempted to remove pieces which are severely damaged. Further, while rolls may show some edge wear or damage prompting a lower condition rating, in many cases the predominance of the product in a roll will have been protected within the roll and be in good condition. We have attempted to err on the side of caution.
