Film memorabilia is very popular among collectors and is a good starting sector for those who are interested in collecting or investing. As each generation rediscovers the sights and sounds reminiscent of their youth the popularity of pop and film memorabilia continues to grow.

Thus far, most museums have yet to add memorabilia to their public collections, although many have on occasion had specialty shows featuring a private individual's collection. This means there is a tremendous number of items still in private hands. With the internet offering a worldwide trading platform, there are unfortunately many fakes in circulation and it is essential to be informed before a memorabilia acquisition. If you'd like to get a Pop & Film Memorabilia valuation from our online specialist, simply upload a photograph and tell us any other details you know about the item.
