    Ladies and gentlemen, we have a signed copy....or do we?

    Signed Mr. Mercedes

    Ugh! I hate sellers who list a synopsis of the book.

    Give me the facts jackass, where was the book signed and when?

    I think it is legit (it must be, it comes with a COA), but he will never get $900.

    Based on the photo of King and Rob Reiner that the seller posted and his note to see his other auctions "specializing in BOSTON SPORTS", I'm guessing he happened to have King sign it at the ballpark. Was Mr. Mercedes on shelves at that point?

    EDIT: Yup, the game was this past Monday, June 16th, so I'm betting that's where it was signed. Which also explains why it looks like it's signed with a basic ballpoint rather than King's usual Uni-ball.

    And now there is a second one!

    Presumably an associate of the first seller given that they have the same pictures.

    but wait...now a third one!


    King is wearing the same shirt in all the auctions, and you can clearly see he is signing Mr. Mercedes in the a couple pictures.

    David has two 1st/1st signed copies for sale at Betts for $495 each.

    Anybody care to guess how many actual copies are out there that have been signed? I know, shot in the dark but, with no official signing, the # has to be pretty low no?

    Agreed. King did no official signings for Mr. Mercedes, so the number is very low for a King book.

    Thanks fellas. That's what I was thinkin'......definitely no more than 50.

    As we've come to expect from David, the $450 - $500 price seems to be where it should be based on the scarcity.

    I ordered the MR MERCEDES UK paperback from Amazon.uk. (2 copies) Maybe I should have waited, but they usually come in good condition despite the scarcity of protection in their packaging. I got an e-mail confirmation yesterday they were sent.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    And the people bowed and prayed, to the cell phone god they made...

    I've also been doing that on the last few paperbacks and also haven't had any issues with damage to the book. They've arrived in good shape. Looking forward to receiving this new one.
