Official Press Release
LOS ANGELES — Bid NOW on eBay to win the ultimate opportunity to hang with Stan Lee on a yacht on Friday, July 27, 2007 at this year’s San Diego Comic Con International! Six winners will receive:
-Photo and face time with Stan aboard the Illusion TV Yacht, which is anchored in the beautiful San Diego Marina right behind the convention center.
-Two of your own personal comic books signed by Stan Lee and then certified by CGC with the prestigious Signature Series label.
-Lunch prior to meeting Stan Lee courtesy of Hero Board Member/CGC President Steve Borock. Lunch will be with Steve and System Of A Down’s Drummer Extraordinaire and life long comic collector, John Dolmayan.
The Hero Initiative will also be adding a page on their website that commemorates the event. This special page will feature the winners with the scans of their Stan Lee CGC Signature Series books along with their photo of Stan Lee and their name underneath the picture. Think of it as worldwide “bragging rights” to show of to your chat board/ my space/ comic space/ and other friends from where they live to any place in the world!
This fantastic opportunity takes place on Friday, July 27. Lunch at the Marriott Hotel next to the Convention Center will run from 12:30 pm-1:30 pm and you will meet Stan Lee from 2:30 pm-3:15 pm.
The fine print: Your two items for signing by Stan Lee need to be received by Hero no later than Wednesday, July 18 so we can have Stan Lee sign them and get them finished by CGC prior to the convention. You will receive your items at the event.
Images featured on the auction’s page are not up for auction but only examples of what you will win. This auction is non transferable and is for the winners only – no additional guests are allowed.
