    I know personally I'd like to see a nice 1st/1st copy of IT. I believe those can be found in the $50 range and I am guessing a lot of collectors would love to have one of those. Just trying to think cost effective versus wow factor. I think that is his most popular book that can still be had at a cheap price.

    I think a lot of people will say Mr Mercedes 1st/1st


    Also if I remember correctly.. did the winner have a choice between a few books? I like that idea. Maybe giving a choice between 3-4 affordable or donated books?

    Finders Keepers, because of the newness and shininess of it all.

    Good thought, but in the past we have tried to keep the request to a recent readily available book.
    I suppose a Gift (CD or PS) of Carrie, or a Thinner could be considered.

    Of those choices, I'd say Finders Keepers. A 2015 book for the 2015 contest.

    i gotta say... I lugged IT with me to Florida... And I bought it for $50 bucks like Aron said. It's mint and if he would have signed that... I would treasure it. It's one of my all time favourite books ever. They are easy to come ACcross and I would love to see it happen

    I voted Mr. Mercedes, simply because it's one of the scarcer current books with King's signature. Since we don't yet know if King will be doing any signings for Finders Keepers, it may be more common.

    Yeah, I didn't think Revival would get any votes... I was going back and forth between Mr. Mercedes and and Finders Keepers, but ended up voting for FK since it's the new book.

    I voted favor Finders Keepers, but would also be happy with Mr Mercedes. Most everyone here already has a signed Revival, so is be shocked to see that get a lot of love in the poll.

    RF, does it have to be a book that King has himself? How is the book determined? If Florida was any indication.. he has lots of older books in 1st edition around...

    It has always been a current title. King never dictated what the item was, we just wanted it to be something new. There aren't a lot of "rules", but the thought is to have the widest appeal to receive the most donor interest.

    IMO, a Finders Keepers inscribed and dated in June, 2015 will be a rare item. Of course a Carrie gift or artist edition would be fantastic too (inserts Bob's comment "Especially if remarqued by Glenn Chadbourne").

    Of the three poll options I went with Mr. Mercedes. I think it or Revival would be my preferred. It's just cause Finders Keepers is the second in a series. I'd rather have the first or a stand alone signed. With that said I'd definitely be more interested in a signed first edition of IT or one of CD's recent gift editions, Carrie or Faithful (though technically that's Books to Benefit) would be a cool too.

    Usually we (the Fundraiser) have a very cool very recent item donated specifically for the Grand Prize winner. This year is a bit different. If the cost of the grand prize comes directly out of the fundraiser, we have to choose something economically feasible.
    If we buy a $250 item (Traycased Carrie Artist Edition), then it takes directly from the fund. We depend on something being donated, or something available (but highly desirable) at a low cost. All of the three poll options (prior to King inscribing) are/will be available for less than $30.
