    Without exception, every signed book I have gotten from Barnes and Noble, or any other bookseller, has been on the book.

    This dredges up a memory about a bad pre-sell experience I had. I think it was Borders, but could have been B&N. It was another Ripken book they were preselling, signed. it was a kids book though. Anyway, was just buying one to get a cheap signature. Something happened with my card on the pre-buy (I think it was a gift card) and they ended up cancelling the transaction without telling me. I was trying to find out where the book was and found out that I was not getting one. By the time I found out, they were completely sold out!

    I had the same thing happen when I tried to purchase an autographed copy of Ballplayer by Chipper Jones through Books-a-Million. It was a pre-order and they didnít charge my card because the signed book wasnít in hand. By the time the book was signed, my credit card had a new expiration date and CID. By the time I figured this out, they had no more signed books. I eventually picked one up on eBay for just a little more than I would have paid originally.

    I used PayPal this time to avoid that type of situation.

    Autographed Cal Ripken Jr. book and some others:

    I got my books in today. I am particularly pleased with the Ripken. My autographed copy of Bruce Springsteenís autobiography is authenticated in the exact same way.

    I got both books for under $40, delivered.
