I totally understand your issue, but I disagree. I think it's magnificent that that book survived in 9.8 all these years, and then has an authentic Stan sig on it. 

Before SS, I would have completely agreed with you. Since SS, though, which provides a mechanism of 99% surety that that book was signed by Stan...I love it.

Creators sign their original art all the time...and by definition, only one piece exists. I appreciate, probably more than most, the total and completely random chance that a book survives in that grade from then until now. It's almost miraculous. 

Frankly, I think the people who get original art signed "to them" are guilty of a far, far worse crime. I've seen multiple pieces signed to collectors, who are mere caretakers of these pieces, like all of us, which I think is gross and disgusting...like this one:

17692668%5D,sizedata%5B850x600%5D&call=u

Who is this "John" guy, and why is he getting OA signed to him? Did he have anything to do with creating this piece, or is he just some guy who happened to own that page at one point?

 

In some cases the artists gifted those pages to fans that wrote in praising their work.  In this case I would assume it was given to a fan.

It was a rhetorical question. No doubt, you are correct. But that art...no pun intended...now has one individual's name on it, when it's a one of a kind.

If people are going to complain about sigs on rare, ultra high grade books...or, "God forbid", pedigrees...how much worse is some fan's name on OA?

Stan wrote several comics after 1972, including She-Hulk #1, Ravage 2099 #1-8, Silver Surfer vol 2 #1, Thor #385, and others.

... and of course the tear jerking ASM 400 ?

Other than Romita Sr. was one of the co-creators of the Wolverine, I have no idea....

Been a collector for over 20 years and never realized Romita had a hand in creating Wolverine. Ok, it makes sense now. (thumbsu

I still think you should get the death penalty for getting a pedigree signed.

Totally by accident, but I agree.  Menacing.  What evil thing will he do to those people.

Nope its disgusting.

complete lack of creative taste...

I will go on record and posit that a person who would be the co creator of icons like spidey or galactus would never, never, ever place a sig so distastefully...

I actually don't have a problem with this item because it's a great message for the kids.

Good message, bad medium for it.

I would've had SL signed the book, "Be Sure to Check GPA before selling!"
