Hmmmm . . .

Not with the same level of anticipation of the LotR movies. I don't go to many movies. But I will go to these.

Hi Qwiniden -

There is some pretty good advice here. Suggest the following:

(1) Educate yourself about the signature. Read over the many threads here, for instance. Knowing the comments of real experts here could save you disappointment (and a lot of money!)

(2) Educate yourself about the market. As Laurel said, supply and demand dictate the price. The cost of a signed book may be different from that of a significant, hand-written letter. Try to figure out what would make you happy or at least be "good enough."

(3) If the seller won't provide a letter of provenance OR such a letter does not add up, avoid the item. Such a letter is all important to my mind. If it's eBay, check out the seller's feedback and ask the experts here about the item. OK, you will alert others here to the item. But I'd bet that "everyone" already is aware of it. It is, after all, eBay!

(4) Ask LOTS of questions of the seller BEFORE you buy. You would certainly be asking many afterwards if you are unhappy with your purchase. So why not do your homework first?

(5) If eBay is too risky, there are certainly experts here with genuine items for sale. Talk to them (suggest you take such discussions off line once you do.) Let them know what you're interested in, see what they have. If they don't currently have what you are most interested in, perhaps they will in the future.

I don't know that the advice in this thread will get you an inexpensive signature (Trotter's comments stand.) But an inexpensive fake is no bargain! Good Luck!

If you're looking for a Christmas gift for a Tolkien fan, please consider the 2011 Heren Istarion/Northeast Tolkien Society Calendar available at:

http://herenistarionnets.blogspot.com/p/nets-calendar.html

The fourth in this series of calendars, it features another wonderful cover by Jef Murray, illustrations by Anke Eissmann and Sue Wookey, and a specially created centerfold by Catherine Sparsidis commemorating their 10th anniversary. Net proceeds benefit this official Tolkien Society smial. My daughter and I printed a rather limited edition: only 65 will be available!

Hi Urulókë -

Does anyone ever have a compleat collection? In my case, I have (as of this date) catalogued 328 calendars (including the various variants.) And I have (with this last one) 300 of them. A nice round number in any case. I have little hope of collecting some of them (the Russian "Tretya Thema", for instance.) But many are commercial issues that are hard to find for whatever reason (some of the early Minotauro issues from Spain and some of the issues from Poland.) But thanks to your support, I have crossed off at least one "goodie." And because of that one, I heard from its creator (John Pivovarnick, who has recently been in contact with Tom Logan.) So hope springs eternal that its mate will sometime come along.

If you really want to know which ones I need, just check out the entries on my website. Those with no letter following the rarity rating are still to be found. A letter designates its state (x = opened, m = mint, s = signed.)

Speaking of the latter, your package arrived safely and my daughter took her copy home with her last weekend. Thanks! Thoroughly enjoyed bringing that one back home with the signatures on it!

Hope this finds you and yours well.

Away from The Green Hill Country,

Parm
