Born to Run Memoir Signed by Bruce Springsteen

A copy of the signed edition of Bruce Springsteen's autobiography Born to Run (2016) obtained last October at The New Yorker Festival was sold in January on eBay in just twenty-two minutes with the Buy It Now feature. You simply don't take chances when it comes to the Boss. The New Yorker's editor David Remnick got to interview Mr. Springsteen at the Festival and he knows how very popular it was. In fact, he now boasts publicly that the event sold out in just six seconds, but how on earth is this something the magazine should be proud of? It suggests that the tickets went to scalpers and their sophisticated bots rather than to long-time readers and fans. Has The New Yorker Festival, at least with its most popular event, stumbled into the same ticket distribution nightmare that the producers of "Hamilton" face?
