Who We Are

The folks behind Silver Screen Collectibles (SSC) have been collecting vintage film and TV items for over 30 years. We are collectors selling to collectors, so we think the same way you do about collectibles/memorabilia of any kind.

SSC is located in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area, so we are right in the middle of where a great deal of the entertainment magic is made! We are passionate about preserving the history of entertainment related items, and spend as much time as possible locating new treasures that you can add to your collection.

We centralize our efforts on paper items, so the majority of our inventory is original one sheet movie posters, lobby cards, inserts, etc, along with film and television stills and press photos. We also offer a large inventory of authentic autographs.

We greatly appreciate your business, and we take extreme measures to ensure that all items we offer for sale are original, authentic, vintage items.

As an independent seller, we do not have to pay commissions or fees to online auction sites, so we pass that savings on to you. We consistently monitor recent sale prices on vintage memorabilia, to be sure that our prices are current and in line with the market value.

If you have any questions or comments, don't hesitate to Contact Us.

Who is Dan Pattarson?

A large percentage of the autographs we currently have in inventory are inscribed "To Dan", so for the curious, we thought we would offer a bit of insight.

Dan Pattarson was a well know autograph collector in the Los Angeles area.  Dan collected for many years, going to any length he had to to add to his collection.

Dan often worked as "Extra" or in small un-credited roles in TV and Film. Through these roles he was able to meet numerous stars over the years, and was never shy about asking for an autograph!

We have spoken with several people who knew or worked with Dan, and each had the same thing to say...he was an absolute sweetheart of a guy!

We were fortunate to be able to purchase the majority of Dan's collection several years ago, and have been able to share the fruits of Dan's labors with hundreds of collectors, around the world.

You can learn more about Dan by checking out his IMDb listing.

Our Story

Our Warranty & What We Promise

At SSC, you will never find reproductions, reprints, or copies of any kind...all items were produced in conjunction with the original film or television program releases.

In each case, we take the time to describe the condition of items as clearly and accurately as possible (see our grading details page), so that you can make an informed decision when considering adding an item to your collection. The images displayed with each item offered for sale are photographs of the actual item you are purchasing; we do not use stock photos for any item. With the original/vintage nature of our items and their inherent scarcity, in most cases, there is only one of that item available.

We constantly scour the country to find new items to offer for sale, so if you can't find what you're looking for, check back often, or you can contact us with your wish list.

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase from SSC, please contact us immediately. We will do whatever is necessary to ensure that you're not only a satisfied customer, but that you will always want to come back and send your friends to us as well!

Most of the items in our collection are vintage "one of a kind" pieces, so the item you see online is the actual item you'll receive. Like any vintage item, the pieces we offer will not look brand new, just out of the box...or like they were made yesterday.

In the case of posters and lobby cards, they are 50, 60, 70+ year old paper items, and may have yellowed from exposure to light, become slightly brittle from heat/sun exposure, or have pin holes and/or minor stains and tears in them. We do our best to highlight the condition of each item, and identify any out of the ordinary issues. In some cases, we will have more than one image, so please be sure to review each of them while you are carefully reading the description. In the case of posters, it is often easier to spot issues from the back, since there are no graphics or coloring to mask them. Whenever possible, we will include an image of the back of posters for your review. Please keep in mind that not all imperfections you see on the back are noticeable (or matter) on the front. If you would like any further information on any item, please don't hesitate to contact us, requesting additional details or photos.

We don't carry reproductions, reprints, or copies of any item, so you never have to worry about whether or not you are buying an original piece. Many of our film and television related photos have studio stamps, snipes, or some other form of studio identification on them, which is always a great way to ensure they are vintage.

We are a UACC Authorized autograph reseller, and as such we carefully validate the authenticity of any signature (vintage or otherwise) that we purchase for resale, and will only deal in items in which we are 100% confident.

NOTE: Along with selling online, Silver Screen Collectibles also sells at memorabilia shows, including The Hollywood Show, CineCon & Cinevent. Attending one of these shows gives customers the chance to see items "in person", as well as purchase them on the spot.  On occasion, it is possible that an item may sell at a show, but still show as available on our website. We will do our utmost to avoid this situation, by ensuring that our online inventory is updated, as quickly as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience that this situation may cause.

We sincerely thank you for your patronage.
