    Ya the highest I’ve seen one actually go for was 14500 and that was at auction in 2014 I believe. That was a VF 1st edition signed. I’ve heard from experts that was an outlier though. It’s more likely to sell for 5-10k depending on condition.

A signed first edition Blood Meridian which to be honest I’ve never even seen for sale so I don’t know if it even exist, but if it does from my research would go for upwards to $7500-$10000.
    There are a number of signed copies on ABE, and they range from $4664 to $27,500, the low end for a signed UK 1st HC and the high end for a presentation copy of the U.S. 1st. Some of those U.S. signed 1sts on the low end are with signed envelopes or similar...a true signed U.S. 1st seems to hover around the $10K mark.

    I have a U.S. 1st ed.(thus)/1st printing, but it's the Modern Library (Random House) reprint w/ the Harold Bloom introduction, but even that seems (according to ABE results) to command around $100 - $150.

    The thing is that McCarthy didn’t have much commercial success prior to the Border Trilogy in the 90s . So the print run for his novels prior to that is very very low. This would include Blood Meridian. Plus it is very difficult to find a copy that hasn’t been price clipped or a remainder mark because again at the time he wasn’t a commercial success. Couple this with the fact that none of the early novels had any limited editions, he rarely if at all signed any first editions and since then his work has become wildly popular and many believe he is the best living American author right now. So you have this scenario now where his work is highly sought after but there isn’t a lot of copies out there for people to buy so that’s why the prices are so high. Also Blood Meridian is considered his masterpiece. It’s in most list of top 100 novels of all time that I have seen. Again this is all my opinion based on what I have seen his books go for over the last 10 years

    I didn't know Blood Meridian was that popular of a book. I've read it, thought well of it, but it was a dark story without much to think about (at least for me) once it was over. Had no idea this commanded those kind of numbers.

So if a signed limited edition of this book were published By Suntup I honestly feel like your looking at a book with Misery type value. This book is that big of a deal. This is contingent on if it’s signed. Even if it isn’t signed I still think this is a $2000 book once it hits the secondary market. That’s partially why I don’t think this will ever happen. I know Paul said it was “big” but this would be one of the biggest deals in the book collecting world in a long time, I don’t care what genre you are into. I just think we may want to lower our expectations a little. Don’t mean to be a Debbie downer, this is just my opinion. It’s fun to speculate I know.

    I almost picked up an AGE of F451 yesterday, then thought better of it. I'm also debating if I'll continue with getting any of the AGEs moving forward. After a dry spell, I ordered both LTROI and A SCANNER DARKLY, but at the higher price point lessens the appeal somewhat.

    Also, has anyone noticed the insane amounts that the AGE of ROSEMARY'S BABY has been selling for on eBay?

    10/11: $401.00
    10/19: $356.28
    11/10: $255.00
    11/16: $460.65 (This was CD's auction and we all know that these auctions tend to go for quite a bit higher than normal.)

    Those are some impressive prices for an book issued at $85. The limited on the other hand did fair so well. The only one recently sold on eBay went for $530. I've also seen the limited of IAL go for under issue price on eBay as well.
    I sold two copies of the RB AGE several months ago for $300 and $275 directly without incurring any fees. I was really surprised they fetched that much as well. My RB S/L sold on eBay for around $500 I believe. Minus fees, that was a real bummer. It was my second favorite Suntup book. Had to have my grail though

    Yeah, the RB AGE even appeared in a few CD grab bags. I actually bought a copy from CD using my CDCC discount so I got it for below the $75 published price.The boards are amazing and it was a print run of only 500..Still, it's insane that it gets what it gets on the secondary.And I think the numbered should get more than what it gets. I LOVE that edition. One of my favorite Suntups.

    I think the AGE for A Scanner Darkly will also command a high price on the secondary. It sold out in 3 days and it has the lower print run of 750.

    I think it’s a great book although it is slow in some parts. I love the main story with Oskar and Eli but the neighbor subplot does drag a bit at times.

    I've read it. I thought it was good, though perhaps not as much as the hype I've heard over the years before had suggested. I'd give it a 8/10.

    I have. I think it's great. However, it is a very different kind of Vampire story. It's A social commentary in a cloak with fangs and that's what makes it so interesting to me. I know it's not everybody's cup of tea, but I thought it was kind of daring to put it out there like that.

    Kinda dig the look of the limited of SEED so I’m thinking about MAYBE trying to get one to match my copy of BROTHER...

    I think the lettered of SEED looks outstanding, but, alas, I shall never be able to drop that amount of dough.
