Values for The Plant last updated - March 2023

These copies were never made available to the general public, or through specialty bookstores, rather they were sent ONLY to people on the Kings' christmas list, as Stephen King felt that sending Christmas cards was insincere and so he gave sent copies of "The Plant" instead. You may ask yourself what his friends usually get for christmas, since the plant was only published three times. I have no idea, but if anyone who is on Stephen's christmas list would like to share I'd be happy to put it down. One thing you don't have to guess about is the price of all three editions on the secondary market, Probably some of the most expensive pieces of paper written! If you find someone selling all three copies at once, pull out your wallet, from time to time a matching set shows up this ranging from $12,000-$16,000
