I ordered mine immediately after seeing this post so fingers crossed I don’t get a cancellation!
With big stores like this, CS often doesn't know these specifics. If you call you're never sure you'll get a correct respons. They might cancel your order while others still receive the books or they reassure you and let you keep it until they cancel on you come release day.
BAM did not cancel my Will Smith book, they just never shipped it and can't tell me how or why. From what I read in the Grohl thread, the customers who contacted Idigo after the initial Grohl shipment got a cancellation while customers who waited eventually got their books from a second batch.
If you see a good deal and don't want to miss the book altogether it's best to just take the deal and accept the chance you end up with two books.
Just for the record, Book Depository belongs to Amazon
Are the Signatures from Obama and Springsteen original Hand written or is it only a print Signature ? For 500$ i think it can be only printed signatures. Besides i can not imagine that both of them will sign thousands of books. Who could pay for that ?
I bought the regular edition in pre-order for $25. At $500 there's enough margin for a slipcase and 2 signatures. They'll probably sign a stack of pages which are then bound in the book. A couple of thousand signatures is nothing.
No one in their right mind would sell pre-printed signatures (being marketed as legitimate) for $500. You'd see riots in the collecting community.
Hey, 2021 isnt over yet…
Seeing way too many things this year I never thought I’d see in a million years.
For example. I have bought last year a bottle Glendronach Kingsman Whisky (900 Euro). It should signed by Rachel Barrie (Master Blender) and Matthew Vaughn (Director). It was limited to around 3000 bottles. And surprise, these signatures were printed on a sheet. It was not a original hand signed signature. And Obama and Springsteen are other calibers than Barrie and Vaughn. So i think its possible that it could not hand signed on every book...
It is not only the slipcase. The book is clothbound. Thats much more expensive than normal hardcover. And Obama and Springsteen are very high paid people. I want not know their hourly wages. So 500$ is not to much. For month at Taschen there was a Depeche Mode book. Hand Signed from the complete Band and Anton Corbijn. That was around 800 Euro. It was limited to only 1786 examples...
I have asked at Crown Publishing because of the signatures for a couple of days. I will wait for the answer
Premiere Collectibles have just listed this again at $500, only 10 copies available
thank you! thank you! thank you!
My pleasure, I hope you were able to get a book.
