In 1980, he began offering sci-fi, fantasy and action-film posters just as the post-"Star Wars" age of the Hollywood blockbuster kicked into gear.

The end "I could continue and struggle along, but I'm 70 years old now," said Caruso, more information who plans to join his brother in Petaluma, Calif., and sell some of his remaining 15,000 posters online. "It's time for a change." Caruso's biggest sellers have remained largely unchanged throughout the store's history: "Back to the Future" (I, II and III), "Raiders of the Lost Ark," anything "Star Wars" or "Star Trek"-related.
