Thanks Andy. What with all the liars over in CGC chat room "board" land making stuff up about me 2007-2015, I never seem to know any more reactions I might encounter over here in CBCS land of Ethics.

Am so glad CBCS started up which stopped the Wall St type monopoly tactics the owner of CGC was up to.

That said, I have never paid for a sig on a comic book and/or in my comics memory book. One does not encounter same at "normal" book signings with authors in "real" book stores. I also always get a sig personalized to me for my shelves. Sigs and inscriptions are for later fond memories. Here is one of my favorite pages. No art. Just sigs from friends I made back in the day.

@BLBcomics I've never took part in the CGC boards. I like the people and the atmosphere at this board so I'll stay here. The last con I went to I had the most fun speaking with the artists and looking at their work. All the books for sale were cool too but meeting the people who created them was the best.

To answer the OP's question, yes I think it's worth it. I very much enjoy Frank Miller's work, especially on Daredevil, so I'm always brainstorming ideas to have him sign stuff. I also have a Ronin promotional poster signed by him but I don't have a picture.

Also, some of those sketch covers could be colored and the appearance would improve dramatically. Examples:

But like KaptainMyke said, they can't all be winners lol.

Lee's signature is well worth a $100, as is Miller's.....it all depends on WHAT PARTICULAR BOOKS and the GRADES you are getting Lee's or Miller's sigs on.

For Lee, low grade SA keys like a coverless to a 3.0 X-Men 1 or Avengers 1 are always bankable.Look at GPA and GoCollect for the pricing trends.

Have Miller or Lee sign a Dark Knight #1 regular cover (2015 series)and even if you get a 9.8, it is barely worth it and you may be lucky to break even.

Far as your DKR 1-4 set, you would have to get no less than 9.6's, to justify the costs involved.

Even if you think your DKR books are all 9.8's, you better pay for the books to be pressed after Miller signs them.

You can take advantage of subbing thru NY Comics, for their CBCS/CGC Dealer discounts on grading fees.And they can hold books to get multiple sigs on, at different cons.

The drawback with having books signed at multiple cons is that means more handling i.e. a higher probability of a grade drop from a 9.8 to a 9.6 or 9.4.

Edit:
I will add that NY Comics has a very good track record of not screwing up signature submissions.

Avoid sog faciliators like Anastasoa and their sister CBCS sig provider company ( cant remember their name offhand)....but I can tell you that Anastasia has a lousy track record of massive delays and damaged books from careless mishandling.Do a search on them on Google and you'll see threads about them over on the CGC Forums, dont take my word on it.

Completely agree, if you're paying that kind of money for sigs, unless they are purely sentimental to you, you want to get key titles and high grades.

TDKR set has to be first print and should be aimed for 9.6 at least. Getting them all 2x sig series'd at once would be my suggestion too, cuts down on handling. Pressing is a good idea as well. Getting them remarked would be another way of getting your books to stand out from other possible sets.

Should be enlightening to see what happens in the Stan "The Man" Lee market after he dies and the endless supply of autographed books comes to market at the same time the artificial price level of his signatures goes away.

There are over 1500 Stan Lee cgc yellow labeled books for sale on eBay. How many get listed within the 24 hours period after he passes? (Yes, a bit morbid. Please note, I hope he can continue on for many years to come).
