Hi Community. I met Stan Lee on my birthday a few years ago on 5/28/2016 and had this book signed. Stupid me, sold it a couple of years ago. This book has more sentimental value to me now than ever before and I'd like to get it back please. If anyone can help me find the owner of this book, I would greatly appreciate it. I do have a blue label 5.5 white pages I'd be willing to trade for it or buy it outright cash. That had to have been one of my best birthday's ever and would really like to get it back. Please help? Below are pics of the book.

I don’t mean to be crass (and it’s sort of in the rules) but you should put a price you’re willing to pay. Obviously the higher the price the more likely you are to get your book back.

 

and maybe consider offering a finders fee?

How did you sell it? eBay? the boards? garage sale?

Anything other than the last one you can probably still get the person contact info right?

it might help to put some details of the first sale as in who you sold it to and what location.. might help for others to follow the trail for you to see if its one of the books they bought off of person x.

Last sale was for $1,525 and you REALLY want it, so yes - he does have you over a barrel at this point.

Wishing you the best of luck on this one.  Hopefully the current owner can be reasonable and still get a fantastic deal.

I'm impressed you were able to track it down. Fingers crossed you can haggle to a price you're comfortable with.
