Well, looks like I missed out on another good deal---I thought that this auction ran until after I'd be home from work, in time to make a final bid, but I must have done some math wrong.... :(

That would have been a good buy at that amount.

I never saw it, myself.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Placed a snipe at $356, right at the beginning of the auction.
The shipping did me in, since they were going to use the online calculator provided (and thus twice as expensive as required).

This thread needed a bump, anyway.  Someone got a good deal here.

$25 for a 2nd print? I'd sell mine for that.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Saw it, and saw that I couldn't pick it up for $10, so I decided not to ruin someone else's snipe ;)

Man what is the deal here:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... RK:MEWA:IT

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... eName=WDVW

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... eName=WDVW

I know it looks to have some staining on the cover and I have a sneaking suspicion these prices are low due to the newbie seller, but still a Dragon #3 for only $11.50 and a #8 for only $18.25 WOW! 8O 8O 8O 8O 8O

*g*. How many times did I need to post on the "Interesting Items" thread?

Confused me that there's the other seller who started listing other SRs/old Dragons, 'bout the same time!
(Same person different ID, I think. *points to <gingerncody>*)

It is 2 different user IDs, although I also have a sneaking suspicion that they are both one in the same. Both are out of Michigan and both listing early Dragons and SRs. That made me a little bit leary, but in truth, I simply forgot about them or I would have put a bid in on them anyway at that price. :wink:

*bump*



Well, there went another 1st printing DMG that got away, this one from a UK seller that actually in pretty decent condition. Seems like besides myself(the idiot who *forgot* to bid on it :oops: ), only John even noticed it:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEWA:IT



Same seller also had a MM softie up:

And an early print PHB that had a couple missing pages and was laminated:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEWA:IT



Still all of them went for less than $15.00.

Sigh.  I have to remember to place a test bid before sniping.  I tried to bid on this collection of Monsterous Compendium pages during the last few seconds of the auction but was auto-denied by the shipping limitations.
