  1. Hi guys I have had a lot interest locally from people who want to get items signed and submitted to CGC for Mad Monster Party Phoenix 2018. I was able to make arrangements with Triston Pence to facilitate the show and Reptileking to be the witness. If you are interested in getting items signed and submitted contact them through private message.


    There is a huge Nightmare on Elm Street Reunion this year there.

    Mad Monster Party 2018 PHOENIX July 13th -July 15th

    :whatthe: some of the comics w/coa can go for that much, but this is a NOTHING comic, even as a cover swipe, its a really dumb looking cover swipe.  ZERO chance it goes for even $100. 

    Definitely right about a nothing comic other than being a good read it's main uses are toilet paper and cleaning glass windows.

    This is a perfect example of the ten of thousands of signatures on items that hold little to no value and items that make you shake your head.

    It would be like having Stan Lee sign a magazine that has Hugh Hefner is on the cover that came out after his death.

    Stan Lee's signature is not rare, there are literally tens of thousands of items signed by him, i seriously would not be surprised if he has reached over 500,000 items, but it does not mean its worthless, he puts a fair price on signing books now days last i checked he was charging 120 per sig, because of this the price stays at about $100 least, yes if he signs a key issue on the right place it can sell for much more, but on a mile stone, not really. Mile stones are cool to have but understand they are pretty worthless, they printed alot of them and they are fairly new, brand new they usually sell for no more than $40, so i would not be surprised to see your book signed by stan go for anymore than $150

    Yeah but that is because people want to meet him not realizing they get two seconds with him. Once he passes away his signature won't be worth more than 30 in most cases.

    I’m wondering if the fact it’s a private signing will help.  Maybe longer breaks etc?

    That video was a snapshot. We don't know what is going on, other than he had a bad day. He could be perfectly fine, but just came back from his bout with pneumonia too soon.

    Seriously?  The guy is 95, it doesn't matter what the specifics were.  

    So just because the guy is 95 he can't do anything?

    Unless you have the full facts you should mind your own business and don't post on this matter. If based on the snapshot in time that you saw you are not going to get his autograph again that is fine and your choice and you can say that.

    The guy has more money than he will ever need.  Let him relax in his last years.  The video where the manager is constantly reminding him of his name and what to write was beyond sad.  Don't let DWC tell you for one second that they are doing it for the fans.

    How do you know he just wasn't having a bad day? That maybe he is back to normal now. Maybe he just needs limitations put on numbers he signed. How far into the signing was this?

    Did the person have permission to film him?


    You don't know what is going on other than you have a snapshot of a moment in time.

    “Hithis is Stan Lee and I’m calling on behalf of myself and my friend Keya Morgan.   (Only Keya, interesting.)

    Now, you people (What people?) have been publishing the most hateful, harmful material about me (Stan is universally portrayed as the victim in this) and about my friend Keya (only Keya by name yet again) and some others (like who?).

    Material which is totally incorrect, totally based on slander, (in reality there are numerous videos and posted eye witness accounts from fans at SVCC) totally the type of thing that I’m going to sue your [a] off when I get a chance.  (Stan is by most accounts a people pleaser, yet now he's going to "sue your [a] off"?  And fwiw, Keya Morgan has apparently been known to be quick on the trigger with threats of litigation.)

    You have been accusing me (I don't recall anyone accusing Stan) and my friends (again, which?) of doing things that are so unrealistic and unbelievable that I don’t know what to say. (someone is out there actually selling comics signed in Stan Lee blood, many of us don't know what to say either)

    It’s as though you suddenly have a personal vendetta against me (the outcry from fans has been "please stop hauling Stan around like an ATM") and against the people I work with. (I'm sure internal and external vendettas abound between people you work with, so there's certainly truth to that)

    Well I want you to know I’m going to spend every penny I have to put a stop to this and to make you sorry that you’ve suddenly gone on a one man campaign against somebody (against who?) with no proof, no evidence, no anything (again, people's eyes see what they see) but you’ve decided that people were mistreating me (you're at a con falling asleep constantly and forgetting how to sign your own name, people are reasonably going to wonder if you're there willingly) and therefore you are going to publish those articles.  (well yeah, it is the media and they sourced the SVCC reports very well)

    I’m going to get the best and most expensive lawyers I can and I want you to know if you don’t stop these articles and publish retractions, I am going to sue your [a] off.”  (again with the out of character [a] suing off)

    Yeah and Im told from people he worked behind the scenes with when he is mad he actually talks like this

    Stan released a statement today:  https://io9.gizmodo.com/in-a-new-video-stan-lee-threatens-to-sue-anyone-report-1825212978

    Sounds like it was coached by a certain party and is suspiciously lacking in any type of details.

    Where is your proof? Unless you have proof don't take a side because you don't know the intentions of those making the accusations. What you do know the media is just looking for a story anywhere they can get one no matter who they hurt. 

    So Stan is asking you to back off he doesn't know and can't understand why these vicious reports are coming out against his daughter and friends.

    Maybe disgruntled former employees who want a piece of his pie still.

    Are you for real?  By JC's own account of the events at SVCC 2018, she had her own booth set up (an obvious draw of her attention away from her father) and decided she needed to have a lawyer tell her what to do when she couldn't get near Stan during the show.  AND she took said lawyer's advice to just pack up and leave early.

    Add in to that the recently circulated account of her accosting and injuring both of her elderly parents over a monetary dispute, and questions such as "Does anyone know if his daughter is just rich and stupid or actually mentally challenged?" are absolutely fair game. 

    Accounts from whom disgruntled former employees who may have an agenda?

    I agree with Bomber-Bob.  I don't think $800 is unreasonable.  I've seen copies with universal grades of 5.0 to 7.0 sell for about $400-500.  Stan's signature will run you (to get yourself, if you can still get it, considering his health condition and availability recently) about $150. So, right there you're at $650.  And, your friend should make a few dollars in the process, or why even sell.  So yes, while $800 is not a bargain, he's definitely not ripping you off. Maybe counter with $700?

    I wouldn't pay anything above $50 of what tje comic is worth without Stan's sig. 150 is way too much to add to the value of the comic when his autograph value will drop like a fly after he passes away it is just too common

    Horrible, this no longer Stan Lee, "Stan The Man Lee" is gone, now there's just a man who used to be him - so sad.


    Seriously, this needs to stop.

    Someone - ANYONE - here who has any connection to Stan or his daughter MUST act. This is elderly abuse!


    It was elder abuse 3 years ago when I stopped getting his autographs done in 2015 from what I saw was going on and a disservice to fans, but his health has gradually declined each year.

    The question is if Stan has mind dead set can his own crew stop him?

    Depends on the circumstances. This is from 3 years ago and my heart is sad to see how things have gone down hill lately, but that is what age will do to you. I got to spend most of the day with him and it was a lot of fun. Even then you could tell the age was starting to take it's toll (but he was certainly still a feisty little gentleman!) Max was pushy yet understanding. I didn't see Max do anything inappropriate the whole day and I was literally 6in from Stan the whole time. He could have been a little more understanding of Stan's age, sure, but they were trying to get through the hundreds of guys standing in line wanting signatures before Stan just couldn't do it anymore and Stan understood and was down with that drill. They've done it many times before. I do think that now is past the time for that to continue. I've watched his new handlers at work and I'm not one bit happy with the situation.

    I'm very thankful I got the opportunity that I did and I wish that the last conversations in Stan's sunset days were regarding how happy he is and how wonderful he is doing instead of what they are -- conversations about the various sad ways he's being taken advantage of. 

    Does anyone know if his daughter is just rich and stupid or actually mentally challenged? These things would never happen to my daddy, and if there was any idea that something like this was happening I would have someone buried in my backyard REAL quick!



    You shouldn't make any accusations unless you have solid proof. I can say some fans had some negative interactions with Max, including Max saying Stan wants to buy your item when really Max wants to buy it himself.

    I've been in politics and the on the board of directors for conventions.  What I can say is everything needs time to play out.

    Alot of things are happening right now alot of people formerly employed by Stan are releasing stories that we do not know if they are true or not. What are the intentions of his former employees? Are they truly concerned? Are they disgruntled and just went to make JC's life hell? Are they trying to figure a way to work themselves back in to get a piece of the pie?

    We don't know. What we do have going on is a smear campaign. I don't know JC except for the one time I bumped into her and she was extremely nice. What I do know is Stan has been doing the cattle type signing for awhile now and slowly during that time his health is getting worse. He can't see what he has signing for awhile maybe close to three years now that is evident by bad signature placements and he continues ti sign with dried out markers until someone points out to him. He clearly has a hard time hearing people now and for the past two years I have heard from facilitators that he falls asleep in the middle of signing an item. We do know that he just got done with a spell of pneumonia.

    What we don't know going on in the video is what were the circumstances going on to cause them to say his name and how to spell it.

    Did he just wake up? Just needed his memory jogged a bit. Is he still having some bad side effects from the pneumonia and he came back to soon because he is pigheaded and once he has his mind up he is doing something then he can't be talked out of it not even by his own daughter? Is what we saw the Stan Lee we can expect to see from now on after his fight with pneumonia? If that is the case then everyone including his crew learned for the first time that he can't handle that load anymore. Maybe they talk him into retiring because they don't want the bad press or maybe he can still handle doing shows, but his work load needs to be cut down to a limited number of photo ops and signatures.

    I know if the shows are still making him happy and giving him drive to live. No need to completely eliminate something that he truly loves if he still wants to do it for himself if limits are set and he truly wants to do it.

    Now if he doesn't want to do it anymore or is afraid if he continues to do this people will get hurt. Then he should eliminate it altogether.

    All I can say is there are plenty of people on this board who knows what is going on and many of them have just asked to limit his workload for the past three years.

    Given last weeks appearance, nobody should put down their money for his signatures, photo ops.  Look at some of the examples in other threads.  Stan has finally hit 95 years old and it seems to have caught up with him.  Let him rest.  Save your $.  When he passes on to Valhalla, eBay will have about 500,000 items for you to choose from, for 1/2 the price once supply exceeds the demand (it will take about 2 days).?

    Hey if he wants to get Stan to sign an item he can. No need to discourage him. He can make his own decision from the articles he see

    My Dad is over 80 and still subscribes to the Hollywood Reporter. He sent me this link.

    Even he knows who Stan Lee is and was saddened to hear about his situation. I attended many SDCC back in the 90's and early 2000's and saw Stan around but I never wanted a signature. I'm glad I stuck to my tastes and not speculated. I still have SDCC signed books by Barry Windsor Smith and Al Williamson. Even CC Beck!

    Take the article with a grain of salt for now. All the accusations I read seem to come from disgruntled former employees who may or may not have an agenda. Yet it is clear thise people want to paint JC in a bad light because money is involved. We don't know the full story.

    What we do know his lines have been handled like this for some years now and his health has been slowly declining as each year goes by.

    He falls asleep in the middle of a signature, can't see what he is signing, and signs so fast most people don't get the experience they want. 

    Its just now either this is the Stan we can expect to see from now on in that video or he is recovering from pneumonia still and it is still effecting him some. What we do know is that if the fighting over his estate was not happening right now we probably would never have seen this story.


    Which leaves it on the hands of showrunners now clearly stating hey we want Stan here we know he is a draw, but we can't continue to allow this treatment to go on so either you limit the number of signatures and photo ops to something he can more handle maybe 200 a day of each and you adjust yoir price higher so we can meet his autograph guarantee or we are not having him

    Hey everyone, you may know me as comicbooks22 from instagram. Relatively new to the boards. i wanted to start a thread dedicated to the mess that was Silicon Valley Comic Con 2018. Please see my instagram and for details, and sound off here.

    How about stay in the thread already created for Silicon Valley Stan Lee by Celestial Comics, instead of giving us a brand new Stan Lee topic? 

    I mean any time a person wants Stan they start a brand new topic instead of looking at already created threads. It's kind of annoying. 

    By now he just needa his own category in Sig Series.

    Hi All,

    I've been reading here on the boards, and confirmed with CGC, that they will not be appearing at the Phoenix Comic Fest in the end of May 2018.

    There are some names there that I would like to have my books signed by.   I've already reach out to Desert Wind, and they are not making it clear whether or not they will be there or can help out.

    Are there any CGC facilitators attending that can also act as a witness to these signings for a CGC Signature Series.


    Try Triston Pence.

    @reddwarf666222 When you say "still sealed" ... you had Olivia sign the plastic wrap on the outside of the vinyl??

    Good Question. No I used Painter's tape to create a rectangular box on the record where I wanted her to sign, then removed the plastic wrap from the area I had sanctioned off for her signature. Then she signed the open area of the record cover where no plastic wrap was. Afterwards I removed  the Painter's tape and the record is still sealed.

    He's a tough nut to crack.  Possible, but I'm going to say unlikely. 

    Run into his vehicle with your vehicle. Agree to sell your vehicle to him, but with the stipulation of a CGC signature op. King will agree to that the last guy who hit him in his vehicle he bout that vehicle and went crazy destroying it and police were called in.
