Wow, these are incredible. Too bad I just blew this months’s budget for books with one purchase or I’d love one. Good luck with the sale!

These are very cool, but I do find it hard to believe that Steve Ditko autographed anything later than the mid to late 1960s. It has always been my understanding that Steve Ditko was loath to sell his artwork, autograph virtually anything, and avoided interviews like the plague; he believed that his work should speak for him.

If you say that these are Steve Ditko's autographs, I won't be disputing your analysis. As you alluded to in your story, this must have been a "once-in-a-lifetime" type of moment.

Yes, Ditko and his convictions based on his following on Ayn Rand's objectivism really did "round" him, sort to speak. And I myself could not believe it whatsoever when I first discovered these little gems, but after years of having them with me and gazing onto them, I am rather confident on them if not, god forbid, I would never have listed them for sale, as that would be going against my own convictions. 

Those sigs are representative of Ditko's earlier signature and was during a time when he really didn't sign much at all.  As he got older he replied to fan letters and his signature was a bit different...  But if you look at early signatures they have the swoop back through the S and T from the e's finish.  His signature is known to be all over the place.  Almost as if he did it on purpose so its probably difficult to authenticate.

Anyone have any concerns about the Lee signature? Just curious. That price seems incredibly reasonable and should be authenticated (quick opinion it, PSA/DNA won't cost you much and getting one done will surely help the sale of others) and stories are sometimes sold to make a dishonest sale.

I own 16 Steve Ditko letters dating back 15 years, hence 16 signatures and actually kind of considered him a friend, but never had the nerve to ask him to sign a comic book. :(

That might have ended the "friendship" right then and there  lol
