I project when he dies a typical Stan Lee signature will be worth about $70 moving forward. Pete Rose is an excellent example as a bellweather.


Lee's signature, on a lot of CGC SS slabs, often end up closing under $100.

It mostly depends on the book and the grade.

If this is the minority opinion, its at least not a minority of one. I completely agree.

Keep in mind he currently charges $130+ for his sig, so in a sense he's driving his own signature value up artificially because people are desperate to get it before he passes.

So I think items he had nothing to do with Will be near worthless. I think items he had close ties to will retain value, someday increase. I only ever wanted his signature on an amazing fantasy 15, which I got it on a reprint. i wouldn't have done this to an original, personally. it looks good in a slabbed AF15 book, though. Regardless of the grade.

I have 3 yellow label Stan sigs: a Spidey 300, a Captain America 6 (1st Winter Solder) and I’m awaiting a low grade Tales to Astonish 44 from across the street.

The Winter Soldier book is the odd duck, but I won it at auction for a decent price. Of all of them, that one could drop a bit in the years to come because it’s a Modern in only 9.2. It’s basically only worth the price of the sig.
