That would be the same Stephen who was honest-to-a-fault in his description of

(Still surprised that that one sold for so little; with a mere $111 on the next underbid... :?)

Yeah, we both know who the seller was and after seeing tfm on the hunt, I put in a bid to ensure it got to a reasonable sum. Could've sworn decent 1st GHs used to go nearer $250-300, though... :?

All of us. Out of sight, for a change... :)
And there have been many, many interesting items heading in that direction, recently.

Cougar was only rumored to have two of everything. *jk*

@Brian: yes, I have a spare [size=0]or two[/size]... that latest one's the best copy, though.

Heh, I would have bid on that one if I had known that it was up. :)   No biggie though, I was just having some fun. :wink:

Yes, I believe I paid around $225 for the burntwire bros copy that Jeff just bought from me.   :D

Always glad to take one for the team.   :D

Yes, indeed.   :D   But just checking through my notes yesterday I discovered that the hightest private offer I got on it was $300.  I won't say who it came from, but will say they didn't bid on the auction.  In fact, they haven't been very active here for a while.

Anyway, 'grats on that one, Jeff.  I hope you like it.   8)

Starts with a "t" and ends with a "m"?

(No need to reply, either way, Stephen... ;))

Cool: I thought $300 sounded like the max.
Darn, and I could've picked up another "on the cheap"..... for research, of course. :lol:

Man am I pissed at myself.  I really dropped the freaking ball on this one:

Great win for Christophe though. :)

I am surprised this lot went this cheap.  Granted the seller really didn't do themselves any favors in their titling, but I still figured that this would have gone higher with those What PC sheets with the Lizard Logo in there.  The thing that turned me off was the obvious water damage to the Dungeon Geos as I was worried that it migh be present in everything else as well, but I never got around to asking about it.

lot of money but it looks quite tidy!
Not an ID that I've ever noticed before (always like to check out who's buying what :P ) - From the look of his buying history I would suggest his in the grip of the mania that many of us have when we rediscover D&D on ebay, and this is a purchase of something a bit special. (course I'm making wild assumptions here!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.
