Blockade Billy 1st edition

1st Edition Cover





  • A first edition of 10,000 copies. Issued with great fanfare from Cemetery Dance; this edition of the novella included a loose baseball card of the main character with every copy. Issue Price of $25 Current Value = $40-$60

  • A second edition of 10,000 copies, announced a few weeks after the first edition. It differs from the first edition with cream endpapers and an updated copyright page. Cemetery Dance customers were given just 72 hours to pick up a copy if they wanted one. The rest of this edition was sold to libraries. Issue Price of $25 Current Value = $25-$35

 

This book came as a bit of a surprise as Cemetery Dance does not typically do 1st editions for SK, those are usually handled by the larger publishers. Among the collecting community it was seen as a project given to CD by Stephen King specifically to help out their business (as he is known to help out small publishing houses).

Two versions of the baseball card were produced. 75% have King photoshopped into a stadium background. 25% have just the background that was shot on site. You can read all about it here.
