Spider-Women Alpha # 1 Signed By Stan Lee ($2,000,000)
There was only one Spider-Woman Alpha #1 comic book that Stan Lee signed before he died and this is it. If you want to add a very rare one-of-a-kind item to your Stan Lee memorabilia collection, then this might be what you are looking for.
Amazing Spider-Man #1 Signed By Stan Lee ($1,000,000)
Spider-Man issue #1 is extremely difficult to obtain and very, very rare. It’s essentially the Holy Grail of comic books. This copy was signed by Stan Lee at a private signing on September 11, 2016. The inscription reads “With great power comes great responsibility! God bless America! Excelsior!”
Captain America #1 Signed By Stan Lee ($635,000)
The Captain America character was introduced to comic book fans in December 1940, a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor and America’s entrance into World War II. The very popular cover of Captain America #1 features Captain America punching Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in the face.
Although Stan Lee didn’t create the character Captian America, writer Joe Simon did, Stan Lee was very involved in the comic book series. He started contributing as early as issue #3 and introduced the idea of using Captian America’s shield as a throwing weapon that returned to him like a boomerang.
This book was signed by Stan Lee and also features a sketch by legendary comic book artist Allen Bellman.
Amazing Fantasy #15: Spider-Man Origin ($531,000)
Before Spider-Man had his own comic book, he made his first appearance in Amazing Fantasy issue #15 on August 1, 1962. This issue features the first appearance of Spider-Man (Peter Parker), Uncle Ben and Aunt May.
Massive Signed Collection Of 500+ X-Men Comic Books ($225,000)
Why settle for just one single comic book when you can have a whole collection? This rare collection of 500+ X-Men comic books is impressive. I almost feel like this belongs in a museum. The current owner spent over a decade collecting the issues and getting them autographed. Each book is autographed by people who contributed to that specific issue. Out of the 700+ autographs, 20+ contain an authentic Stan Lee autograph.

X-Men #1: Signed By Stan Lee ($185,000)
In September 1963, the world was introduced to the X-Men by Stan Lee and his legendary partner, Jack Kirby. X-Men issue #1 features the first appearance of the X-Men, (Professor X, Cyclops, Iceman, Angel, Beast, and Marvel Girl) as well as Magneto. Stan Lee wrote the story and his partner Jack Kirby drew all the art including the cover. This is a very rare issue and a prized find for anyone with a serious library of Stan Lee collectibles. Less than 50 copies of X-Men #1 are still in existence with a 6.5 grade or better.
Spider-Gwen #1 Signed By Stan Lee ($175,000)
Spider-Gwen is part of the Spider-Verse storyline that features alternate realities from the Spider-Man franchise. In the Spider-Gwen series, Gwen Stacy of Earth-65, an alternate Earth, was bitten by a radioactive spider instead of Peter Parker. As a result, she becomes a crime fighting Spider-Woman in the comic book series, not Peter Parker. The Stan Lee autograph in this issue of Spider-Gwen #1 has the line: “EAT YOUR HEART OUT, TIGER!”
Amazing Fantasy Issue #10 + Vinyl Record
The Amazing Fantasy comic book series is special for many collectors. A lot of popular superheroes made their comic book debuts in The Amazing Fantasy series. This issue #10, predates Spider-Man’s debut in Amazing Fantasy issue #15.
This one-of-a-kind item is special for several reasons. The cover art of Amazing Fantasy issue #10 was used on an album cover for the band Barnes & Barnes, famous for their hit song “Fish Heads“. The collector got Steve Ditko (issue #10 cover artist), Jim Shooter (Marvel Comics, Editor-In-Chief), and Stan Lee to all sign the album.
The Amazing Spider-Man #700 Signed By Stan Lee On His 94th Birthday ($100,000)
Stan Lee was an active participant in comic book conventions up until his mid-90s. He finally retired from conventions in 2017. He died the following year in 2018 at the age of 95. This comic book was signed at one of his last conventions and on his 94th birthday making it even rarer.
