Stan Lee will be there at SDCC for autographing on Friday, July 13, 2012. He's in the 80s now and when he passes he'll not be involved any film or comic anymore. Ticket is $55 per signature. You can buy up to 10 tickets. If you want more, just contact Desert Wind for details.

That's not too outrageous. I used to go to a lot of sporting card trade shows with my dad when I was younger and most of the athletes in attendance charged $20+ or more to meet and greet and get an autograph (this was 15+ years ago).

And these were just "B" grade athletes and celebrities.

I've even gone to some where they require that you purchase whatever it is you're getting signed at the event; which means you can't bring in your own memorabilia.

Hell I've even read about certain athletes that would absolutely NOT sign for fans (Ted Williams comes to mind) and others that would request they receive money; even if not at a sanctioned event (i.e. out in public).

To charge people who have made you billions $55 to sign a piece of paper is a lot to me. I also understand having a limit of things to have signed but if you want another item signed its another $55

Just because it has been done before doesn't mean it's right.

Yepp. I've spent hundreds meeting NFL players and having them sign my football.
One event was actually neat because it all went to the relief efforts in Japan. :)

If you get a comic, card, or movie signed it will be worth much more than $55..

I'd gladly spend $55 to get an autograph from him, but I'm nowhere near where that event will be.

I've spent a ton on horror movie actors and such over the years to sign figures, posters, and movies, and doing it again next weekend at the fright night film festival. 55 bucks for Stan Lee, who will kick the bucket sometime soon probably, is worth it if you have great items for him to sign.

To be fair, it's usually not the guest themselves that are charging the money. More often than not, it's the company that flew them out there that sets up the fees and whatnot. In this case, Desert Wind Comics.

debating it. I dont know what I'd have him sign though. I dont have any comics. Have all the marvel movies and a Marvel poster but I'd be flying there and taking a poster on flight would be a pain.

When he was at Baltimore Comic Con I passed on getting his autograph and still kinda regret it but I just had nothing I could think of him signing worth a crap. OP is right he isn't getting any younger and any of those autographs when he finally passes will easily get you that 55 + back should you choose to sell.

only Marvel comics I have are some old Howard the Duck comics from the 70s but there no mention of Stan Lee on them whatsoever so I dont know if thatd be worth getting signed.

GEEZ! I remember when people didn't use to charge for stuff at SDCC. But this is me just being bitter cause I've been going since I was a kid and not happy with the way it has turned into. But yeah, for people going they should get it done before he's gone. I saw him 3 years ago there and got to talk to hiim and he did not look good in person. And not sure if it was the area I found him at or him, but something smelled like pee!

Glad that I already have a bunch of comics signed by him over the years of me living.

Met Stan Lee last year at SDCC when he and Morgan Spurlock were promoting the Comic Con Episode IV book. He was pretty cool, glad I got his autograph in the book.

Seriously debating buying a nice Avengers poster and paying for him to sign that this year....

EDIT - I swear to god, this site cost me more money than it ever saved me....just ordered a $40 official Avengers double sided poster and dropped $55 on the signing. At least I'm going to have a freaking awesome poster to go next to my signed Gears poster from last year! Now, just need to get lucky and win a Joss Whedon signing at SDCC this year....having him and Lee on the poster would be amazing.

That $55 investment can make you hundreds and thousands if you have him sign the right comics.

I see people complaining, and it's weird. I was going to go to Star Wars Celebration V two years ago, but things came up. Mark Hamill was charging $125 for an autograph. So in comparison $55 isn't that bad, if you really like Stan Lee.

I'm sure you'll see him. The meet and greet is more of a way to get to talk to him and enjoy some special time. When you're signing, you probably just get to say "hi" before you rushed off so they can get other people too.

I saw Mark Hamil one year at SDCC. He was charging 75 bucks for a signature. Only catch is he would only sign the special Comic Con exclusive Luke bust that was crazy expensive. Friend's brother who usually has me and the rest go in line go to get signatures (or exclusives) for extras so he can sell them online. While I got to him I said "I love you in The Guyver". He did a single "ha".

I understand the charging... if a anime VA- arguably a 'niche celebrity' at best- can fill a 2-6 hour autograph session and still turn people away, I hate to imagine what someone like Stan Lee can bring in. So, either:
You raffle- yay, a 6 hour wait for 1:1,000 odds!
You cut the line- a nightmare for the poor folks trying to enforce lineup times and prevent cutting, or
You make people pay to weed out causal opportunists and the broke. It sucks, but it works.

I do prefer people who you can see for free though, they tend to be very cool. So you're getting Stan Lee's autograph... my brother got ass-raped by Jason Mewes at ECCC, so there! :D

bought a ticket. Going to have my Spider-Man '67 Collection dvd set signed. Isnt in mint condition, but its in decent/fair condition. And I believe it is OOP, so should be a good item to have signed. :)

May look for something worthy to have signed at the con too in case I change my mind.
