    Stephen King hot stamping dies--collectors?

    I'd be curious to know, does anyone collect the hot stamping die metal plates that Cemetery Dance uses when they're producing a book?

    For instance, over time I've collected one from IT: the 25th anniversary edition, one from Blockade Billy, and one from Dark Forces: The last two editions were published by Lonely Road books.

    Does anyone else collect these plates, or are you more into the actual book and artwork instead of the one of a kind production plates?

    If not these, anything else you collect that's related to the production of the book or associated with the book, particularly Stephen King collectors.


    Thanks! Just curious!

    WOW! you have three of them, I just have one so far. It's for the slipcase Cemetery Dance produced for the UK edition of 11/22/63, pics are up on my collection thread if you want to see it. Could we maybe see pics of the ones you have too?

    Not something i'm interested in (mainly because of the weight and difficulty i would have displaying them) but i'm sure there is a market for them!

    Is that yours?

    I wish it was mine, that is a big price for that considering the Unique Collector's Extravaganza, when broken down by item, probably put a price of nowhere over $75 for it, a nice profit indeed!

    I hope it does, but it's really really unlikely.

    I hope not.To me that is just being greedy. You could drop the price by 70% and still make money.

    It is definitely being greedy, but if it does go for that price, it means that all our customers who got those Kind dies in the recent collectors extravaganza got really good deals, and I like when our customers get good deals.

    I think he meant me. But the answer is the same. Times 1000.
