    Default Charlie The Choo Choo Sales

    Not sure if this is the correct place to start this but I figured it'd be fun and informative to keep track of the madness for ourselves and new members as they come along.

    I'll start with the ones from eBay so far and you guys can let me know of any off eBay, private sales, etc. I'll start with the highest and where it was sold.

    Someone got a deal for $500 including the shirt. Despite the likelihood that 500 books were done, I don't think they are going to drop much below $500.

    ^I expect it will stay around that price, but I wouldn't be surprised in fluctuation going either way. Not worth that price to me though...

    Definitely seems like a good deal (relatively speaking) considering where the average price has been landing. Another one just sold for 1136 today. I would love to see what would happen if somebody listed one right now that was actually signed by King. If one almost broke 2000 just because it was inscribed to Jake, I could only guess that a real king signature (and not just a crappy laid-in plate) would make for an interesting auction.

    Speculation as to the price of a King and Dameron signed copy (I know,I know, ask Matt )?

    Right now, being the first one to come to market, I would guess 2500 on the low end, and 3500+ on the high end. Maybe even more. I mean if somebody is actually willing to pay 1200 dollars for a copy signed by an actress - a literal nobody with no real connection to the book - then who knows what somebody would pay for the signature of the actual author and the artist.

    Might as well speculate a quadruple signed book....

    King
    Dameron
    The actor paid to be Beryl Evans
    The artist who did the additional illustrations.

    What do you think....would an unsigned copy be worth more than one signed by "Beryl Evans"? For my collection, I would prefer that.

    The way the fake book signed by the fake author is now, I still wouldn't pay more than $100 and I'd hate myself for paying that much. It's shit like this and some of the recent King books not signed by King for over $1000 that make me wish I had never started any type of collecting.

    This is a real oddity. It is still not clear (and never may be) if the initial auction prices were driven by movie promo collectors, King collectors, or comic convention collectors. My guess is a combination of all those factors, combined with the initial belief that only 150-200 were done. Now that it is likely 500 were done, the price will be driven down.
    In book collecting, not much attention (value) has been placed on having the artist for the book sign it. I believe there is less value by having it signed by an obviously fake actor. Purely a stunt.

    In order of value per my own thoughts:

    King signed copy. King wrote the words that are quoted verbatim in the book.


    Ned Dameron signed copy. Dameron was the source artist.

    Unsigned copy.

    Copy signed by hired actor.


    IIRC, only King signed the S/L TGWLTG. No one cares about Alan Dingman, or Peter Abrahams.

    If I was actually going to buy one, I would prefer an unsigned copy to one signed by the actress. In my mind, her signature devalues the book in pretty much the same way that my own signature would devalue it: neither of us have any business signing a Stephen King book (although, I guess she was hired to sign it, so it was technically her business, but you know what I mean).

    It's fun to speculate on value, but this is definitely one of those King items that I will never own unless someone gives it to me as a gift. Cool book, but I would rather spend that type of money on another Gunslinger...and another....annnd another....pretty much ad infinitum.

    A member sold his unsigned copy for $750. If I were to buy one signed by the actress and inscribed to another person; I wouldn't go more than $250.

    That would indicate there is a high degree of interest from collectors here on the site.

    Of course there is. And, despite many of the naysayers and negative comments that have been posted, I think that all of us would love to add a copy to our collections. I don't have one in hand yet but I have been watching the eBay auctions closely. Some copies seem more desirable than others. About half the copies that have sold on eBay have defects like bumped corners and spines. You have to look at the photos closely but they are there. One auction currently running has troublesome black marks on the rear cover. The actress who signed as Beryl Evans seemed to get tired of signing (my assumption) as her signature seems much sloppier on some copies and sometimes she signs only as "Beryl." I would much prefer an undinged, clean copy with a full Beryl Evans signature.

    I would value a copy signed by Beryl Evans (even though she was a paid actress) higher than an unsigned copy. To my knowledge there are no copies available signed by King so that is a moot point for now.

    From what I have heard Ned Dameron said he was too busy to do new artwork for the book but gave his OK to use his piece for the cover. Because of that I don't think he is necessarily a contributor and don't see how his signature would affect the value of the book one way or another.

    Well it will be interesting to see what happens when the other copies are released. I'm still hoping for a NYCC giveaway and I'm wondering if they will hire a Claudia Bachman actress this time?

    I thought of that too. But wouldn't they have to reprint the book with Claudia's name as the author?

    I feel like we won't have to wait too long before one emerges that is signed by King. With the values what they are, there's got to be at least one or two people actively trying to intersect with King in order to get a signature. Then again, maybe he wouldn't even sign it. He might just tell the person holding out the book that he didn't write it, Beryl Evans did! Haha, he seems quirky enough where that might be a definite possibility.

    I feel like we won't have to wait too long before one emerges that is signed by King. With the values what they are, there's got to be at least one or two people actively trying to intersect with King in order to get a signature. Then again, maybe he wouldn't even sign it. He might just tell the person holding out the book that he didn't write it, Beryl Evans did! Haha, he seems quirky enough where that might be a definite possibility.
    All good points and possibilities. But he now readily signs the Richard Bachman books so he likely would sign Charlie books, IMO.

    I think he would too. No problem. I still would not have an interest in one at that price... I would rather a 1st signed IT or Slinger for those kind of prices~ You know, we all talk about it here how we are shocked they are selling for these prices... but there is CLEARLY a market. Maybe not here... but there is a market. It shocks me but people are willing to plunk down major cash for something that cost literally a few bucks to produce.

    That's true. If he refused, I think it would be more of a goof than an actual unwillingness to sign it. Kind of like a funny extension of the promo. He'll sign one eventually, though, and somebody will put it on eBay, and that will be an awesome auction to follow! I think we will all be surprised at where the final price point ends up, one way or another.
    Looking for:
    1) CD Carrie S/L & matching art portfolio #58
    2) white The Stand Collector traycase w/window in front
    3) Eyes of the Dragon proof with green wrappers
