Thought I'd post this in case theres people who missed out and are still interested in this pair. The reserve clearly has not been met considering the extremely low bids already made, someone with some money may be able to snatch this up. I know I certainly can't.

Very nice items but unfortunately way out of my league.

I could do it right now, but I'm sure the undisclosed reserve is out of my range.

FWIW, I'd go with the Danse Macabre Mr Boone :)

My thoughts exactly, Mr. Woot. I have the Gift SOD1&2 anyway.

Highest bid was $610 USD and the reserve was still not met...

Pretty steep, although I have no idea what these should go for. My guess would be the seller was looking for something around 750-800 maybe.

If it were me it'd be set at $1000 and itd likely go over. not that i'd sell them. When I eventually get some worth anything they will be sold when I am ready to retire for as much as I can get for them, unless I end up with some brats, might leave them with them to do with as they please. Prob be worth more by then seeing as SK should be dead by then.

It's been re-published on e-bay for $900. I guess that was the reserve.

that's not that bad actually. I can't afford it but considering the aftermarket on other books, even other anthologies its not bad at all.

I have this set and am in $600+ for the books and shipping so I would not sell them for $610. Of course I am not selling mine though.

Yeah, I'd want more than $600 too. I've seen the Lettered editions for sale but at a price under original cost, so I'm not sure that there's a great market for the SoD books right now.

For a matching set $750 - 850 isn't that far off i guess, and for a non-matching one $650-750. The modern day S/L's just aren't going up in value as far as i can see!

Then again, it's all relative ... the coffin box L/E of The Stand : Complete & Uncut had a ticket price for $90.00 back when it was released by Doubleday in 1990.

Look at what it goes for now, 22 years later :D

Tom said modern day, which i would assume meant the newer stuff. 1990 is 22 years ago as you said yourself. Thats a long time and one of, if not the most popular, SK book.

Good lord, Teri. That coffin Stand is nearly as old as you are!

Very True, and the original along with almost half of kings work and SEVERAL of his movies are older...some by alot. lol

I think it's one of those things that just takes time for copies to disappear into the void so to speak. I mean look at the "From A Buick 8" Signed Limited. They're pretty expensive to get your hands on these days.

Hmmmm i'm not sure, i think when i picked up a copy last year it cost me 180 which included shipping. So i stick with my original statement, that modern day S/L's don't go up in value (apart from IT which is thought to be one of most peoples favourite book).

I don't know, the only copies I could find on the net right now where going for $780+ which if I remember correctly is above the original price of them.

And they will never ever sell for that price, i can assure you of that. Just because people list books at a certain price doersn't mean they will sell, atm it is a buyers market!

As someone who has been desperately seeking a signed SK book I can afford I can tell you that they have ALL gone up in price a considerable amount in relation to their original prices, with the exception of 11/22/63 and Under the Dome that are still affordable and not much higher than the original price. I find myself wishing I had ordered ALL of the CD limiteds before they sold out but I wasnt around then :( Original prices are so reasonable and considering the aftermarket I would be VERY happy to have them for my retirement. lol

The point i was trying to make (badly it would appear) is that in 1990 the Coffin Stand was "new" then, and went for $90.00. It now goes for between $1,200 - $2,500 (depending where you look). One would imagine, in 22 years, when the "new" L/E's, such as BB, SoD, UTD and 11/22/63 are "old" they'll command higher prices - hence the comment that "it's all relative" :eek:

Which is why i am ok with trying to get my hands on the cheaper new ones first because by time I ever sell them they will all be worth alot more than I paid. Collector now, Seller when I am old and King is dead (hopefully, as I said before I may die first and never get old, we'll see)

The initial price of the limited Stand was $325 (when you could find one.) I got one from a dealer about six months or so after it was issued for $700.

What got me hooked was missing out on "Six Stories" when it was published by King's Philtrum Press. I even knew about it from a flyer from Bett's Books, but thought $75.00 for a paperback was way too much. I've regretted passing on in ever since. The next limited was CD's "From a Buick 8" and I made sure to get that limited, even though I couldn't afford the signed one. And all these years later, I've spent way too much, but it's a nice collection!
