    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!

    So that means you can sell it to me for $800 then

    Look at what it goes for now, 22 years later

    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 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"

    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

    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!

    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.

    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.
