"It's worth a lot. Because it's SIGNED. REALLY. ON A PIECE OF PAPER I TAPED INTO THE BOOK."

eBay Item #251314843895

P.S. Nothing wrong with tipped in signatures (assuming this one is real), but I don't think it adds anywhere near this amount of value, if much of any.

I would say a tipped in signature devalues the book. It makes it less original.

How do you feel about signed bookplates then, Stu? Not meaning the published limited editions with bookplates, but there have been original bookplates (such as at the Children of Hurin release parties) that people added to books.

Well, I tend to think that those release party bookplates were always intended to be put into copies of CoH, so I think they do add value to the intended recipient books as they have an intended relationship.

When it comes to other signatures, I always feel that the tipped in signature would be better wherever it originated and the book would be better original also. The individual unmolested items are better than the whole (a kind of reverse synergy!) I just don't see the need to stick two essentially unrelated items together to pretend that something is signed.
