    Darn, thanks for the picture, now I want one too.
    I'm sure if there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe, they are wise enough to stay away from us.

    Shit! I arrived a few minutes too late last night, and on a facebook group, a SIX SCARY STORIES ARC (probably from CD), sold for only $35 !

    Is it just me, or has the proof market grown smaller recently? There are quite a few nice proofs for sale at the moment but there doesn't seem to be much activity...

    Which reminds me... I sold most of my proofs but I still have a US Skeleton Crew proof (which I'm keeping). I used to own a UK Skeleton proof in the past as well. I'm tempted to go for Mike Pasiuk's copy as a companion piece to my US proof... hmmm.... old habits die hard....

    I just recently started collecting proofs. I pick one up here and there, when my wife tells me I can

    My main issue is pricing. I am struggling to figure out the true value on some proofs. I refer to the proof website mentioned somewhere in this thread for reference, but I don't think you can just go off of that. I don't plan on reselling any of these, so I don't want to overpay for them.

    And eBay doesn't help at all. Take The Dark Man proof, for example. Right now there are several on eBay. But the prices range from $60 to $750!!! What's the difference? I know CD has produced different versions of their proofs before, a "regular" and an inter-office one. And there were different colored covers for this particular book. Does that make them that valuable? I wouldn't think so.

    Proof pricing is definitely tricky. Proofs are an acquired taste, which doesn't help. Personally, I was only ever interested in 'original' proofs, not proofs of reprints (like most of CD's proofs are). I also don't like proofs/ARCs that look just like a paperback version of the trade edition, with full cover art etc. So I would never pay much for any of those (whether they are scarce or not), whereas other proof enthusiasts happily pay big $$ for any type of proof as long as it is 'scarce'. To me it is unconceivable that a CD proof would cost more than, say, an original Firestarter or Skeleton Crew proof that is over 30 years old, yet it does happen.

    Bottom line: I would always ask for an opinion here on the forum. All proof collectors have their own bias but I think you'll be able to get a reasonable estimate. And never pay more than what feels right to you (but that goes for every collectible, not just proofs).

    Proof prices are all over the place. David has a UK Hearts in Atlantis proof for sale at $135. This has been reduced from $150.

    This proof is regularly seen for sale on UK ebay for £10 for a fine copy, and most of the time they do not even get any bids.

    Yeah, I saw the one David has. I would like one, but Iíd rather pay the £10 vs. $135. Guess Iíll have to start looking on eBay U.K.

    Hi everyone - I'm a new joiner, lurker for a while - I've come across a proof copy of Sleeping Beauties in good condition - numbered 152 out of 250 (I think). Has 'EMBARGOED - HODDER & STOUGHTON' watermarked onto every page. I was wondering - is this worth anything and is there anyone out there who'd like to purchase it? Or should I keep hold of it for a few more years...

    I appreciate that Herbert - just out of curiosity do you have any idea what it's worth?

    I only know of three sales - two on eBay for £420 and the last sale for £238. The £238 sale seemed to have an issue with the book by missing the limitation page. I bought my copy for £375. There have not been many for sale. Iím sure there will be a few members here looking for one.

    Wow! Mine definitely has the hand numbered limitation page - I didn't expect it to be that much!

    Better sell it quick. Proof prices tend to go down pretty quickly as more of them hit the market.

    To be fair I haven't seen many of these online - maybe 4 out of 250 copies. I'm not exactly looking to sell it super quick per se, I just want to get a price that I feel is fair.

    This Fine one never sold today. It was a BIN of £25 or offers. He would probably take a lower offer.

    Last time I heard, a few weeks ago, I was told that it should be soon.
    I bet that mine will come this week when i'll be in London and not able to visit my contact
