What is a signed copy of Kasparov's book worth? Does anyone have a signed copy how much do you think it is worth? Also a little feedback on Kasparov's new book? I heard two of the volumes are out, and he is making four isn't he?

What is a signed copy of Kasparov's book worth? I don't have a signed copy, but I doubt if it is worth much. I talked to Kasparov once, albeit very briefly. That was in Amsterdam in 1996 at the VSB tournament, after he had just beaten Kramnik. I had the chance to ask him for an autograph, which I didn't, regrettably.

Which books are you referring to, by the way, those about his predecessors?

A signed copy... I would figure a signed copy of any book (by its author) would increase it's value substantually... I have purchased his new book "Kasparov and his Predecessors" and found his views on past chess master intriguing... He covers the games and certain details of Wilhelm, Emanual, Raoul Jose, and Alexander in a way only Kasparov can do... The book is well worth the money...

I seriously doubt that a signed copy would increase the value significantly. If you want to get your copy signed, Kasparov will probably offer more signing sessions when volumes 2, 3, and 4 come out, as he did with the first volume.

The book, by the way, is excellent.

signing sessions? Where were those signing sessions held?

Sadly Autographed material no longer brings a large premium do to the counterfeiting issue. Nobody believes it is authentic. Keep it and enjoy it!

I've got a hardback Kasparov book with genuine autograph by the very man, but I really dont think it will have much additional value. I saw some autographed copies for sale from a reputable chess shop and the mark up was tiny.

Great Predecessors I saw a signed copy by Kasparov on offer at 30 on ebay, which is only a slight premium on the new book price......

Dave I have a copy of Bronsteins 200 open games signed in Russian and English.

Any thoughts on what this might be worth or anyone want to buy it!
