Random question:  Forgive me for asking, but aren’t Stallone/Weaver/Moretz gajillionaires anyway?  Do they actually need the money?  I can understand a nominal fee to keep the rif raf away, but these prices seem ridiculous high.

Adam Hughes does sketches for a $10 donation that he gives to an animal shelter or something and he is less rich than they are.  Stan Lee charged something like $200 for 10 fans to have an hour to sit and an talk with him, but they got a shared hour.

I’m just shocked at the prices these guys are charging.

The price for Moretz is actually pretty average as far as convention prices go. I've paid $60 before for Spike from Buffy. So really, she's kinda on par with everyone else.

Hoenstly, Stallone is the highest price I've seen for an autograph/photo.

I agree it's very high. But I don't think all the prices coming from them directly or they getting all the money.  It costs Celebrity Authentics to bring them, and they are probably trying to recover the costs and profit from it. Some of the money maybe going to charities that celebs sponsor as well.

I remember many people where upset, when it was announced that Bruce Campbell will charge $40 for autographs, a few years ago at NYCC. Now that seems cheap, compared to what prices some other charging now. It seems to be an increasing trend.

and he only does commissions via Ebay now for conventions because of issues with reselling, and those can go for $500 or more.

This I get because the person gets original art.

I did not know that.  Thanks.  In his panel, he was talking about having to do the occasional cover while penciling whole books to “pay the bills.”  I guess he can also do an appearance.  :)

I guess I muddied the waters by including comic book examples.  :)   I don’t have a dog in this fight as I am not a big autograph guy, I’m just surprised they charge so much.

From what I've seen, $40 to $60 is common now for autographs, usually more to get photos with them (professionally, not at their booth). But some of the prices I'm seeing for "bigger" celebs like Stallone and even Ms. Weaver are just too much for me.  :P It's cool, I suppose, that they're doing the show, though.

Now Norman Reedus & Michael Rooker from The Walking Dead, for example, still only charge $40 or so for autographs and/or professionally done pictures. (For now.) So not all celebs charge outrageous prices. (Thank goodness.)

Celebrity Authentics told someone on their facebook page, that Moretz, Stallone,and Weaver were their final three guests for NYCC. So I don't expect anymore names from them.

There is tweet for Wresting fans:
