Default So who are the most sought after CGC Sig. Series signers?

Obviously there are now probably a few hundred thousand Stan Lee Signature Series Yellow Labels out there, and I'm glad I just bought my first one. But the question I have is, who is the most sought after or expensive CGC Sig. Series person?

I am trying to rack my brain for a mix of legendary writers/artists looks like Alan Moore is #1 on the list to me, and maybe Frank Miller #2. I tried to see if there were any Bob Kane SS, but I think he might have died before CGC had its yellow labels (might be wrong). Not sure if there was someone else who might have died shortly after the Yellow Label creation that is highly sought after.

I guess I should be asking this on the CGC boards, but does anyone have a strong list of the top selling and hardest to find CGC Yellow Label names?

Also, do any actors that do Comic Cons sell for insane amounts? I think I saw that some Carrie Fischer signed books were selling strong a year ago, haven't monitored it since. Have any legitimately legendary actors that have worked on comic or Sci-Fi related movies such as Harrison Ford, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson, etc. done any Comic Cons where CGC has been there to encapsulate? And no, Lou Ferrigno does not count as legitimately legendary.

I think my dream CGC Yellow Label might have to be a CGC 9.8 The Killing Joke 1st Print signed by Alan Moore and Jack Nicholson. The odds of those two doing a Comic Con together might be one in ten million, so I guess my dream of that one will never come true.

My dream and I know it isn't that popular would be 2..A 2x SS with Stan and McFarlane, maybe ASM300, or Spider-man #1 by McFarlane..an SS by Seth McFarlane on Family Guy #1..And a Grimm #1 signed by the Tv Cast..the tv grimm, not the spank one all the guys want for "great content"

I think this would be nice to show off. I don't know if people chase it or not but people that don't collect comics know the sig and movie. Makes it a conversation piece.

Off the top of my head, Frank Frazetta for artists that are deceased. And there are a lot of golden age artists that passed after CGC but yeah, Bob Kane died before CGC.

Alan Moore and Frank Miller are good examples of surviving artists, you should add John Byrne and Todd Mcfarlane to your list. They are both really tough sigs to get CGC. Ditko is impossible.

As for actors, Harrison Ford is up there. Sly Stallone was charging and getting $300 a sig last year I'm sure there are a ton of other celebs that are highly sought.

I know it's not a huge SS but Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson) will be a at ECCC and I will get her on a Simpsons #1 with CGC. She rarely does conventions.

I guess to answer your question I'd have to understand a little more about what your goal or focus is on getting these. I mean to me, getting a key signature is only half the battle. What you WANT is a key signature on a key book. For example, as was mentioned previously, Stan Lee and McFarlane on an ASM 300 would be a very hot item and would probably bring $1600+ on a 9.8 yellow label. But if you were to get Stan Lee on just some random marvel comic and get it graded 9.8 yellow label, it'd only be worth maybe $100-$150. To me atleast, the comic you are getting the signature on is far more important than the signature itself.

I think he's another one that follows the edict of what I was talking about above. his signature on one of his key ASM variants is going to draw a whole lot more interest and have a whole lot more value than his signature on one of those Grimm b-porn books that he's done, lol.

I dig Tod MacFarlane and Chris Clairmont so I go after those CGC with their signature.
And of course Stan Lee.

Amateurs...this is how you get a book Yellow Labeled! It has 22 signatures; the most allowed by CGC at the time, I think?

And for all your JSC nut huggers...he is on there as well.

I'm not sure how CGC Sig Series works, are they authenticating the autographs, like JSA? If so, the signer doesn't have to be alive, right?

If that's the case, I'd say a Jack Kirby would be great to have.

A CGC rep has to be present to see the signature for it to qualify for SS.

G
is that even a comic book? LOL. One I do have on my list of stuff I'd like to get is one of these with as many sigs as I can get:

Amazing Spider Man 700 Martin Skyline Variant CGC SS 9 6 Signed 18x Buscema | eBay

though I of course would have to get a 9.8 and the one I get would have to have Stan Lee on it which I don't think that one does...

Neil Gaiman would be up there for me to get a CGC SS book for.

Jim Steranko would also be a great one to have ESPECIALLY for a sketch series.
