Signed by Garrett Price

This should be an easy question. What's the chief selling point of a signed book?  Presumably it's the signature, yes? So if you're selling a rare signed book on, say, eBay, wouldn't it be smart to include a photograph of the signature with your listing?

A signed copy Garrett Price's cartoon collection Drawing Room Only (1946) is being offered for sale on eBay for $58 with the Make Offer option. You can look at the cover all you like, but the signature's appearance is apparently a closely-guarded secret.

August 18, 2013 Update:  The eBay seller has added a second photograph to this listing so we can now see the signature. This is just one example of the influence this blog has on the universe.

Note:  There are quite a few examples of signed books on this blog and most of them even include signatures. You can see a few of them here.
