I have bought an autograph before, but it wasn't much more expensive than the comic was going for without the autograph so I didn't see the point in not getting.
But anyhow, those people aren't buying it for the content. the content of the TDKR dvd is still going to be worth £5 is a few months. So people buying these thigns are just buying a lump of plastic that isn't going to hold it's value in the slightest.
I'm with Kane on this one, different people like collecting different things. And it so happens that a lot of people love collecting movie related memorabilia. Ticket stubs, statues, action figures, posters, cups etc. In this case, a broken Batman cowl that's so symbolic would be a very nice thing to have on your display, and it being limited edition makes it even more collectible.
