    Exhibit CAA: Beyond Counting (Looking to Purchase)

    I have been searching online for a copy of Exhibit CAA: Beyond Counting to purchase. It is quiet elusive, so I figured I check here and see if anyone has a copy they would be willing to part with. I am interested as both a collector and amateur AP.

    Thank you!

    Are you prepared to spend several thousands of dollars for a copy ?

    Actually, last few copies that sold on ebay, went for under $2k. Collectible value of book falling back to realistic levels. Expect it will sell on average for $1300-$1400 by next year.

    JG's insight and analysis in his book are valuable, in and of itself, but never understood the collectible phenoma that drove the price of this book to over $3000 on both ebay and amazon.

    The main message of the book is to always keep your eyes open for opportunities and knowing how to exploit them (mainly dealer mistakes or miscalculated promos).

    Also tells the correct strategy for carnival games if certain cards are known.

    Unless you actually plan on putting in the time to learn those games and strategies, and putting even more time scouting for exploitable dealers, it's not really worth the collector value.

    I've had the pleasure of reading the book, special thanks to a member.

    I enjoy the book both for the information and how JG writes. It has a ton of information, including some that hasn't entirely leaked out as of yet. OP, as ZMF stated you'd better be prepared to spend a shiny penny on it. Forums and ebay/amazon are going to be your best places. I got my copy from someone selling on a forum... Though I plan on keeping mine for life, and trying to get JG to sign it =).

    I bought mine from JG for $250 and watched it's value climb to $3,000. I'll handle it the same way I've handled stocks -- hold it until it drops back to its original value.
