GANDALF MEETS BILBO
by THE BROTHERS HILDEBRANDT
From J.R.R. Tolkien's THE HOBBIT
SIGNED by GREG HILDEBRANDT
This is a glossy photo from the Hildebrandt Studios, released at LEAST 20 years ago, and signed by Greg Hildebrandt.
The image, of course, is from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, and drawn by The Brothers Hildebrandt for one of their calendars in the late 70's, The image measures 8.5" x 11". The frame is made of wood, and measures 19"x16" and comes with hardware attached for hanging. Wire and nails are on you...
It is a spectacular piece of Tolkien ephemera, the image alone selling for more than $200 normally, so this is a steal. Please... steal it (but pay for it!). A physical description follows...

About Me & This Item...
I am a private collector of art, books, music (10,000 records alone!) and "stuff" and am very picky about what I buy. I don't like surprises when I buy things from auctions any more than you do. I promise everything there is to know about this item is in this description. I also do not subscribe to "grading" as frankly, grading is totally inconsistent and most of the "graders" TRULY have no clue, so I will use plain English if it is OK with you...
*This is a GORGEOUS piece of art! Framed in an antiqued style painted wood with gilt embellishments, the image, is in pristine condition itself. The only flaw, and REALLY minor is the frame on one corner has a paint bump. It is SO minor it's almost not worth mentioning but because it's there, I do. Enjoy...
For over a decade, I have sold tens of thousands of items on eBay and have only received a handful of complaints about the accuracy in my descriptions. Having met eBay standards for excellence in trading, you may bid with confidence knowing you will get what you THINK you are bidding on! Please check my feedback. It is a record I am very proud of...
I have LOTS of music items, and tons of books available for purchase. Please check my other offerings to see if there is anything else you might be interested in for combined shipping. There are links above and below and why not bookmark my site to make it easier to find at a later date!
PAYMENT TERMS: Pretty simple. Pay me, I send it!
Why Are My Shipping & Handling Costs a Bit Higher than Other Sellers? Please Read on...
GUARANTEED DELIVERY OR YOUR MONEY BACK!I really DO CARE about when and how your product gets to you. Because the post office is so incredibly inept, I ONLY SHIP domestic packages INSURED, which is AUTOMATICALLY INCLUDED in the shipping cost, and that is not free as the post office charges for it. If your parcel gets lost OR damaged in freight, your item will be replaced if one is available OR you will be completely refunded!
IMPORTANT MONEY SAVING TIP! If you are bidding on more than one of my items and would like to SAVE MONEY by COMBINING SHIPPING costs, I will be happy to do so, BUT, YOU MUST WAIT until everything you are bidding on finishes and I send you a combined invoice BEFORE you complete checkout. Once you complete checkout on an item, I cannot go back and combine it with anything else as eBay considers it a closed deal. TRUST ME, I will send you a combined invoice at the end of each item with updated and combined shipping costs and any deal discounts that may apply.
WHEN YOU ARE DONE BIDDING, winners agree to pay promptly once they receive a final invoice.
All of the payment info you need will follow. California deliveries will require sales tax.
PAYMENT OPTIONS:I accept Credit Cards, eChecks and electronic transfers with .Unfortunately, direct bank transfers are not offered due to cost and security concerns.As I reside in the USA, all payments must be made in US Dollars & Cents.
SHIPPING INFO: IMPORTANT!! I can ONLY SHIP to the address as noted in PAYPAL'S "TRANSACTION DETAILS". If you want it shipped to an alternate location, you will need to register that address BEFORE paying or it will be shipped to the registered address.
Shipping costs will be determined by weight & destination. You may click on the SHIPPING & PAYMENT tab found at the top of the page, just under the item's picture for all shipping options to all destinations both domestic and international. There you will find drop down boxes for your location and you can then use the shipping calculator to determine the correct cost for where you live. All
International deliveries all go by Priority Mail and usually arrive within 1-2 weeks. BE AWARE, you may need to pay Customs fees over which I have no control!
