Bid books


Recommended Posts

That is ridiculous. It's just large format thick paper brochure that recycles articles from previous 'share the spirit' magazines and a few other bits and pieces. I got one on ebay in excellent condition about a year or so ago for $20. It is very, very rare though as they only printed a few hundred in each language - but its not worth $500.

Nice, pretty good deal. Have you posted what bid books you have? sorry if you have threads got heaps of pages. The guy who is selling that bid thing has heaps of stuff thats pricey. Participant pins, publications a bunch of australian bid stuff wonder if they are from AOC

More than what I got my Sydney 2000 bid books for! (even though mine unfortunately has volume 1 with a bit of a crease in one corner)

Definitely not worth it.

If it's Aussie bid related, then it must be from the AOC. After all, any knock offs can easily be sued by both the AOC and IOC, as well as being removed from circulation altogether.

Some bid books are up, old ones that have been uploaded but the seller decided to make the prices higher even though they didn't sell i think he thinks we are closer to the games people have more of a chance to buy. 100 pounds (including postage) or 170 bucks (including postage) seems a bit pricey to me especially because they dont have the cover.

140 pounds with postage or 210 bucks for the montreal bid book idk seems pricey pretty sure it was cheaper the last time it was posted

Anyone know about Manchesters bid book? Was it 1 book or 3 did it have a case?

I'm sure it must have been 3. You mean 1996 or 2000 or both right?

Birmingham's 1992 bid books were 3 volumes (I think it was a choice of English or French edition). They included an annex file. There's one on sale on abebooks.com

Hi

It would appear that there is just this one book.

There is no dustjacket or slipcase with our book

It's probably just bid related material made for the bid.

After all, if IOC officials, NOC's and If's get the actual bid books and you don't want the public to get a hold of them, you simply produce an accompanying bid document, giving a basic rundown of the bid.

Is this the actual Paris 2008 Bid Book that was given to the IOC?

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/OO-PARIS-BID-BOOK-2008-OLYMPIC-GAMES-/390231730507?pt=AU_Summer_Winter_Games_Memorabilia&hash=item5adb9fa94b#ht_500wt_969

If so - what were they thinking. Looks rubbish and the orange writing with on that picture. No wonder they lost...

Some Greek person (in debt :P) must be desperate for cash. He's selling a NYC 2012 Candidate bid book on ebay for a ridiculous amount

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Olympic-Bid-Book-N-Y-2012-/251143909753?pt=US_Olympics_Fan_Shop&hash=item3a7957f179

Well the amount isn't too bad, but considering that the actual London 2012 books have been around going for the same price and that supposedly abebooks.com has a NYC 3 file bid book going for 40 bucks...

NO! I got the proper 3 file Paris 2008 bid book. This was just promotional material for the bid (like a mini bid book) hence the Spanish.
