Nice! Anything signed by that man I'd cherish. I collect for pleasure over everything. If my collection happens to end up being valuable, it's just an added bonus.

Someday I'd love to go to a convention and have my favorite artits/writers personally sign something, whenever I have the spare funds to do so.

As a lifelong autograph hound, I can assure you that is the way the autograph hobby is supposed to be.

Even more important than the signature should be the time spent in the presence of and/or talking to the signor. The handshake. The exchange. The ink is nothing more than a momento of that event and a way to reinforce the memory when gazed upon.

Buy someone else's autograph is like buying someone else's memory!

Of course, like anything else, it's a business now.

Having my books signed is like crack. I love it. I dont talk much to them because I seem to freeze up around the artist. Ive met Greg Capullo a couple of times, I dont know if he truely remembered me but he said it was nice to see me again.

This is my son and I when we met Scott and Greg for the second time that weekend

Here’s a sig from last month. My friend got it signed for me. I wouldn’t think it was real if I saw this raw.

For comparison, here are a few I obtained directly from Stan Lee in 1991
All 4 were obtained at the same show on 2 consecutive days.
The first 2 sigs were obtained on the 1st day a few hours apart.
The 2nd 2 sigs were obtained the next day and were signed at the same time.
Even over the course of just 2 days, there are very visible differences.

I feel like CBCS authenticating is a great reassurance but with how wide the variations can be on sigs its possible some fakes slip through the cracks. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. I'm just happy mine don't blatantly look fake and that's good enough for me as of right now.

Signed in person 2013 with a windowed sleeve for perfect placement.

May I say "wow" at how different all these authetic Stan sigs are. I guess his hand gets tired and it goes all over the place. I was very early in line so mine looks normal.
