Is there an online resource with samples of King's signature over the years? I've done some searches and found individual samples but no collections.

As I continue to grow my own collection, I'm trying to create an inventory of signature samples to compare against future purchases. So far I have the 80's to present fairly well represented but next to nothing for the 70's (well nothing I can verifiy).

Anyone know where I can find a couple of good sample pics? Anyone willing to provide any?

Any help is appreciated.

There is no online source of pre 1980 signatures. There are individual pictures around, but no single source.

King's signature can vary quite a lot even in the same year...

That's a great idea. If we get enough sigs I may make an actual page, but for now post any genuine sigs you have below. I would just ask that:

a) If you post from a limited edition, make a note of which edition and the publication year

b) If you post from another book (signed 1st, etc) you only post if you are 100% sure it's authentic. That means YOU got the book at a signing event, or you purchased the book from an recognized store like Betts Books. - Include any relavent info like signing date if known.

Thedarktower.com did this a while ago. Pictures courtesy of Randall Flagg there.

This is great guys! I think this is going to be a great help to people who are looking to compare their signatures to genuine ones!

I had to resize Mr Rabbit Trick and ur2ndbiggestfan photos - if they're wider then about 700 pixels they get wider then the forum and you'll get an additional side-to-side scroll bar, which is even more annoying then the 2nd up and down scroll bar!

Keep em coming, (at 700 pixels wide or less ) ;)

Oh and Surly, I love how you were able to crop the photos an and put them in order with descriptions on the side, that's awsome!
