I suggest you put those Joes somewhere safe and hold on the them for
20 or 30 years. I mean, if they are worth 2 to 3 times their retail value
in only a week because the author signed them, just think what they will
be worth later. You might even be able to get a thousand each by
Christmas! I can only imagine how thrilled the authors would have been if
they knew what your intentions were as they signed those books. You really
capture the spirit of G.I.Joe, the great American hero. God bless you.
