Pleased to announce a signing with Stan Lee coming in April at Big Apple Comic Con.

All books that are graded will get a yellow label from CBCS. Deadline for books and payment is April 4th

Pricing is $175 which includes Stan’s autograph, my fee and grading

Shipping is determined by the number of books submitted

All books must be prepped or there is a 3.00 charge per book

Items besides comics can be sent in as well

Some questions for you @obiwan1971

If we want the comic pressed as well, what are our options?

Does the grading include fast pass?

When you say "shipping is determined by the number of books submitted," does that mean by the individual or the total number of submissions you have from all individuals?

How do you invoice? Do you send a request via paypal prior to April 4th?

Thanks!

Has anybody in the history of the world signed more items than Stan?

At this point Im thinking something without a Stan Lee signature would be more rare.

"Weekend at Bernie's" seems to keep popping into my head when I visualize them wheeling Stan Lee into his next signing.

I imagine Neal Adams is 'close', but not there.

Guinness says that in one sitting (however long that might have been) one guy signed almost 7,000 books. So that's something.

I might go with Pete Rose or another athlete who's been broke/disgraced for years. But who knows?

I remember at a convention, getting a poster signed by Lou Ferrigno. I asked him to put my name on the poster and when he repeated it. I couldn't make out what he was saying. So I repeated it. We did that a few times and finally I just gave up.

But he got it right on the signing.

I honestly did not know that he has a speech impediment. I found out that day. I felt so ashamed of how I kept correcting him. He just couldn't say Walter.

Where can you find out about what artists/writers will be there? Big apple comicon says they're nycs best comic convention,, but both their website and Facebook pages are pathetic, and it's less than 2 months out!

Unless I'm missing something...

Yeah I'm pretty sure he's deaf. I caught the tail end of an interview with him talking about the movie Pumping Iron.

@obiwan1971

What does it mean to "prep" a comic book? Found an old Milly in my pile and might consider this.

Kaptainmyke has a tutorial somewhere...it's pretty good if you haven't prepped a book before. I think you can find it in a Google search or just PM him.

Yep if you are having Stan sign definitely make a windowed bag so he signs where you want. Specifically with this book I was worried about him signing into Black Panther which I have seen so many times. I also provided my own sharpie which had a finer point but that was in-person.

No mention of Stan Lee on the celebrity or creator guest list. To be honest, the list is quite small fo being a month out.

Anyone know if he cancelled? Still dealing with health issues (amongst other things stressful) to my knowledge.

I have been reaching out there both the promoter and agent. I haven’t heard back from either, which given the situation and knowing them both well I can understand. I do have people sending items, which I’m keeping safely on the side as well as their payment in case Stan doesn’t make the show. There have been many stories from both sides of this story. None have been official or confirmed

According to a confirmed post on the CBCS Comic Collectors Club fb page this event has been canceled by Stan Lee.

Due to Stan not being able to attend Big Apple my signing has been canceled. Once Stan starts coming back out I will set up a new signing and post the details

@conditionfreak @Lewdog Lou is 80% deaf, yep. I've seen him at a lot of conventions. Eye contact, lip reading, and context fill in the gaps for what he can't make out on his own.

If Stan cancels a signing does that mean we get six more weeks of Winter?
