Stan Lee charging $100 per sign on final con704

COLLECTOR kaptainmyke private msg quote post Address this user
It seems now the autograph tickets went on sale this morning at the Rose City Comicon in Portland , OR... Stan Lee's last final appearance in Portland.

$100.

Every other time for me it's been $40 or maybe at most $50.

This changes my original thinking that I was getting 10 autograph tickets.

He was charging $100 at Planet Comicon in May with a limit of 4 tickets per person.

With all due respect...the guy is 93 years old. It's amazing that his health even allows him to travel as much as he does. I'd say his prices are justifiable.

I was very excited to get to meet him and have a pic taken with him. Wish I'd bought all 4 autograph tickets.

I paid $70 last year at heroescon in charlotte for a pic with Stan and my son. Worth every penny.

The only reason Stan Lee's signed books are "expensive" in the aftermarket is because Stan already charges a lot at the onset.

It's not like other artists, whose autograph values naturally increase in value (e.g. Neal Adams, Adam Hughes)

The web site has a maximum drop down option to 10. I'd rather get the maximum. In the words of dead pool, 'MAXIMUM EFFORT!"

A Neal Adams signature cost $25 two years ago at RI Comic Con. Last year it was up to $30 (you can pay an extra $10 for a holographic COA from him, but he applies it directly to your comic). Other artists are much more reasonable - Rick Butler and Mike Grell were $3 to $5 per signature.

@esaravo Any idea if that's his current going rate for his signautre? I have 4 books in mind that I'd like him to sign. Any idea if he charges extra if you're doing an AW?

I have no idea what he is currently charging, but he will be at RI Comic Con again this year. I am sure a CBCS witness could let you know if there is any additional charge.

Well I did it. I Bought 10 tickets for $1000, in addition to the VIP autograph ticket I already have in my package. So I will be getting 11 signed.

If you're not already planning to, I seriously suggest cutting windows in your bags for where YOU want him to place his sig, unless you like them on the splash page



Ah, just read your post in the other thread

@Mr_SigS I think they ask you where you want him to sign. I vaguely remember that a few years ago. He signed all covers for me then. He actually missed one of my 4 and I had to politely point it out to him. I wasn't going to have him NOT sign Silver Surfer #4, am I right?!

It was 100 last year in Hawaii. As far as I know that has been his going rate.

Do you think Stan Lee cares or not that I have 3 copies of AMS #1 for him to sign? #1, and 2 GRR editions. The other 8 books are all different. Mostly Spider-mans and a few hulk and deadpool. I only ask because I hope he doesn't assume I'm selling them. Which I'm not. Regarding the 2 GRR editions, only 1 has the record. So, you know. *shrugs*

No, he won't care at all, even if you are selling them. It's a fairly well-oiled machine. I had time to say "Thanks!" and he said "You're welcome", and that was it.

I think it's cool the guy is still moving at all at that age.

I agree. I am only 36 and I can barely leave the house due to MS.

I hear Marvel/Disney has a plan in the works.

He doesn't care what he is signing(Batman, Spawn and few other non-Marvel related stuff). It goes like:" here, Stan, book. sign here, Stan. Next." His manage team pushes Stan to sign as many books as possible. What they care about is exchanging a ticket for $100.

I bet they do since Stan created Mickey Mouse

Hate Stan Lee. He shot millions of dollars and he's 94 years old. Why still charging so much? Trying to put his great grandkids through college?

This. So everyone do everyone else a favor and just stop paying.

Kinda late now I suppose....but anyone who paid that for a sig should have never paid that much to begin with.

I would be willing to pay that for an inscribed [to me] Ditko sig.

One of these days I'll pick up something written by Ennis. Stu recommends him a lot.

There is so much Stan Lee signed stuff out there, that it's getting to the point where a book is going to be worth more without his signature on it than with it.
I have one book with his signature on it and it is probably a vintage signature from the 60's or 70's (maybe actually signed in 1964 because of some other writing on it). It means a lot more to me to have that signature from the early days of Marvel, before he was that well known and all this current frenzy started.

I have actually paid more for an unsigned book before because it was harder to find without a signature. I just wanted the artwork on the cover to be clean and unobstructed. This has nothing to do with Stan Lee, but I thought it was a funny situation.
