Full sized movie posters present tremendous difficulties when it comes to storage and display. Lobby cards though are a different matter. They can be inserted into plastic sheets and kept in standard card or stamp binders. And many of the lobby cards are just as wild and attractive as the movie posters themselves:

Do they make them LC size? I've only seen the binder sheets that fit 8.5x11.

If you're just thinking in terms of the Ultra Pro sheets sold in baseball card shops, you are indeed going to be limited to 8.5" x 11" in size:



Stamp dealers though carry supplies in which whole uncut sheets of stamps can be stored:



The supplies in stamp shops tend to be high-end of the market. Less expensive binders and sheets for storing portfolios can be found at art supply stores.

Here's the SPP Weird-Ohs binder that Monolith has had since he was a kid in the sixties:



And here's a picture of the Freddy Flameout one that was listed on Ebay a few years ago:

I did find some 11x14 binders and 11x14 acrylic holders, but not the kind with 3 holes for a binder.

Here's a photo of my Aurora Seaview model kit:



Here for comparison's sake are all three of the Aurora Seaview model kit issues:



The one I have is the middle one. The top one pictured is the original 1966 "long box" issue that was only produced for a short time and is as a result now very tough to find.

Here are close-up shots of a couple of Horrorhunter's vending machine cards:





Any and all those wild cool treasures for only a nickel! I mean how could a kid say "No"? Unless he was as per usual penniless of course.
