Shipping

Charges are based upon the actual cost of packaging, insurance and shipping. Delicate or breakable items require additional packaging and may cost more, especially if professional crating is required. Shipping charges depend upon your location and an estimate can be given when accompanied by your Zipcode or Country. Most bulky shipments to destinations within the USA are sent via UPS. We try to combine multiple items to reduce shipping & packing costs.

Regency-Superior is offering the single-largest collection of tantalizing celebrity material ever to be sold at public auction; the ‘Celebrity Sleuth’ Collection.

The Collection, formed over more than a 30-year period, contains many thousands of artifacts (more than 100,000) gathered by the Celebrity Sleuth, who began and operated the magazine of the same name, with an impressive national newsstand run of 175 issues over a more than 25-year period. The Sleuth, recognizing that the early lives, careers and habits of many stars were virtually unknown, set out not only to uncover them (from early, anonymous photo shoots), but also add to the pop culture narrative of their lives. A collection of this scope would not be complete without signed movie and television cast photos, lacy lingerie, books, magazines, pulp publications, adult film stars, original Hollywood slide files (including many from famed paparazzi photographer Ron Galella) and the Celebrity Sleuth archive files, which contain a significant amount of unpublished material. And, of course, there are thousands of signed nude images – many you’d never imagine they would autograph!
