Signed Barack Obama book sells for $2,495
AbeBooks.com is experiencing a lot of interest in signed Barack Obama books. Today (Wednesday), we sold a signed first edition of The Audacity of Hope for $2,495. Our previous most expensive Barack Obama sale was $1,798 for a signed copy of Dreams From My Father.
We have also sold seven other Barack Obama books priced $1,000 or over. I’m sure more signed books will sell overnight. To be honest, I didn’t expect to be selling so many high priced Barack Obama books today because his signed books have been very expensive for a very long time. Buyers are simply not being put off by four-figure price-tags. They are clearly thinking that this is a very unique moment in American political history and that these are special books.
