Default Does lamination devalue a poster?

For a poster, it would be more acceptable than a photo, did you know
they sell this gummy stuff like you see on magazines that holds the
lable to the magazine? That or this stuff that's like the consistency
of silly putty that doesn't ruin the poster or the walls. You might
try that. Problem with laminating is it yellows and eventually spilts
and it can bubble. If the poster is not particularly valuble. Go
ahead and do it and enjoy! If you are concerned about value, try not
to alter and maybe try the gummu solution.

two of the posters are about 4 x 5 FEET in size, the third one is about 18"
x 24" and the vintage unsigned McQueen poster is as least 2 x 3 feet. I'd
like to put them on my wall where I can see and enjoy them but I don't want
to pin them and I can't frame them ( besides the expense I have a Cape
Cod--sloping walls...).

so you see my dilemma...

Why not put it in one of those plastic page protectors and then seal the
top? That way if you plan to sell it or pass it on to someone then that
person can decide if they want to keep it in the page protector or remove

I feel that it would devalue it for anyone else who would want

buy it due the people want the original. Since it sounds like you will
sale it do with it what makes you happy. The thing is have you thought
what you would do with it after you pass on? Does the person you plan on
giving it to have the same feeling for it as you do, or would they want

sale it? If you don't care about what happens to it after you've passed

whatever you want to with it. I remember reading a story many years ago
a person laminated their entire baseball card collection. You name it,

big names were there. When they passed on and left it to their friends

family they just wanted to sale them... and couldn't get much for them

I have several autographed theatre posters (which I know are legit)

would like to have laminated for protection, but I was wondering if th

would devalue them greatly--the autograph is not from a big star but

deceased. I have no intention of ever selling them--it's an "over my
dead body" kind of thing but... I hesitate. I've laminated other
or even not so commonly, available posters and put them on my wall
second thought, but they weren't signed.

I also recently purchased a vintage (approx 1970) photo poster
Steve McQueen--apparently rare as it's an image I haven't seen

else, in books or online, in the last six months I've been hunting for
McQueen stuff--it has pinholes on the white border--I'd like to trim

laminate, but should I? I'll never sell it. What to do what to do....

Your advice would be appreciated.


I am a paper collector with so much paper the fire dept hassles me about the fire load in the building because of my collections.I will laminate any item item that isnt worth tons of money (that i want to keep alive) because it preserves it.Old paper goes to hell in handbasket up north and you have to do something.All the purists halfwits are fools and probably have never put any money into their collections anyway.if you love an item you want to show it to other historians etc and if it is in shreds it aint no good to anyone.
