Is Christopher Tolkien's sig a worthy investment?

Subject: Is Christopher Tolkien's sig a worthy investment?

Hi everyone,
New here but by no means new to Tolkien. I have been considering purchasing one of the Harper Collins luxury editions of Children of Hurin or Legend of Sigurd. At £350 for one of the limited 500 prints, and being signed by Christopher Tolkien, this seems a decent price to me (a novice at collecting).

I guess my question is do you guys see these as worth having for future profit. I know CT no longer partakes in book tours and signings, so his signature is getting rarer and rarer, and I would quite like one of these to sit around in my collection, especially if (as it seems to me), it would increase a bit in value.

Thanks
