Value added with a signature on an issue?

How much value is added to an issue if it signed by a celebrity?

you should prob post this in "The Signature Room"  rather than in the pools forum

I'm not a sig collector, only having 1 signed book, but generally from the posts I read value usually comes from books that have the celebs actually on the cover.

Some autographed books are worth this much. Others are worth that much more while others are worth less. 

It also depends if it has a recognized COA or if it is a yellow label.

As asked, your question is unanswerable.

The other side of the question is your buyer pool and your access to it. Some folks like sigs; some see it as defacement. It’s really mixing autographs with another collectible, after all, so a potential buyer needs to appreciate both. (Or, I suppose, in the case of autograph collectors, they’ve just got to like the comic as a place for the celebrity sig.)

I’ve probably oversimplified it — taking myself as an example, I don’t like sigs much but have a few comic creator sigs on raw, lower value books, from childhood and/or from buying others’ collections in full. They’re neat but I personally wouldn’t pay a premium, so I’m in the middle leaning toward defacement. But I think that’s the point — the particulars of your book/sig combo just need to find the right buyer match. Some will be excited; some will gloss over. The particulars matter in terms of how big the excited pool would be.
