That's a deal if it is truly a first edition and the description is correct.

The 1997 MTFCA annual meeting was held in St. Louis. Like several others, I asked Bruce to autograph my copy of his book.
This one isn't for sale.....
I had two like Dicks but gave one to the Libary in Breckenridge,Mi. At the same time i also gave them a copy of Tin Lizzie by Stern. I hope both are still on the job?? Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
I asked Bruce to autograph my copy at Chickasha in 2010 with the year he graduated Van Nuys High. He looked at me in wonderment but graciously obliged my request.
As an aside Norma Jean Baker attended Van Nuys High at the same time as Bruce.
I wouldn't consider the new soft cover edition. The pages are of poor quality. My copy is also signed by Bruce.
I bought maybe that last shrinkwrapped copy in the world (???) at the swapmeet in Fredericia, Denmark in 2009 and brought it to Chickasha 2010 and got Bruce to sign it. Too. :-)
I bought my copy at the MTFCA Museum, has the same signature without the "e" in McCalley. When I phoned Bruce, he denied he misspelled, but blamed the pen . Miss him.
