Fake or real Stan Lee signature6071

Collector kevinlmillard private msg quote post Address this user
I picked this and another book up recently and want to send them in for authenticity, but I'm not 100% it's real. I don't want to waste the money if it is not. I have a couple of things signed by Stan that I got myself and the S is different. There was a flyer bagged with the book from the early 2000's but I don't know if his signature has altered over time. Any help would be appreciated.

His signature has changed significantly over time, particularly over the last few years. He has even begun to use his right hand to sign which creates exciting new problems for verification. Given the time frame, I would say the signature looks good. If you had said it was signed over the last six months to one year, I would be more leery as his signatures vary from decent to absolute dumpster fire.

Yours looks more legit than the one I just got verified, so I say go for it.

@Magellan Thank you that makes me feel a little better.

In my opinion, I’d rather know if it’s legit or not. Either way, I don’t think CBCS notes on the label that a verification failed (someone correct me if I’m wrong or if it’s included in the online notes).

I just got back a Sandman #3 that had a witnessed sig from Sam Kieth along with an older sig from Neil Gaiman that they were “unable to verify.” Still came back with a clean yellow label.

Good luck to you, sir!

Yes it's legit. He's old and left handed. If it was signed after his 1st break and lunch, it's gonna be a janky right handed signature.

The secret wars 1 was the one I had signed personally and the other two are the ones that I picked up. This is the flyer that they were bagged with, and I was wrong it is 2012 I thought it was 2002 for some reason.

The SW 8 sig looks legit. I’ve seen a few that he signed with his right foot.

That’s not even close. The “L” is wrong in Lee as well as the “ST” in Stan

There is no way to tell anymore. His current signature is chicken scratch. Anyone of us could forge it.

I gotta admit the gold sigs look suspect. That's just my gut feeling. It almost looks too neat and carefully done, especially the 's'.

I hope they're real

The hell of the signature game, i’ve had Stan’s both approved and not approved by CBCS. Still trying to decide if I should submit my Ditko’s.

The SW# 8 looks a little off to me. I have to agree with @MR_SigS on that.

I would like to know if any of us has had a signature witnessed by us, and then "turned down" as being authenticated, by CBCS. Now that would be a thread.
