Funny, I recall seeing one just like that a couple of months ago, being described in the auction as "white cover Swords & Spells".

Sorry, fraid not.  I didn't have it on my watch list, but do know for a fact it was the second time it came up from the same seller.

I was really hoping that someone was going to beat our old pal Diamond Dave on this one:


** expired eBay auction **


I could really care less about the lot itself, but it contained Quadrile Graph Sheets in it and I hate to see those get lost in the M-Bag scam.    I can already envision them up on Ebay every week in the not so distant future in VGC and some ridiculous Reserve price on them.  :x

Looks like the seller's wised up on that one, at least.

Q:          hi, I am 7,131 rated, a Powerseller, [yada yada yada] thanks --Dave         Apr-13-07
A:          Thanks for your inquiry. And no, I don't worry about people who have nothing better to do than slander others on eBay - there can be some pretty competitive and MEAN people here in this venue. Although I would love to do business with you, the weight I have on this lot is 55 pounds - which translates to a MINIMUM of $110.00 US for shipping on this item - and that would be economy post, which would take 4-6 weeks to arrive. The methods I would PREFER to use actually cost over $170/US. So sadly, that would be cost-prohibitive and a hassle to us both. Best of luck with your online businesss - and thank you so much for your interest! Good luck in the future, Matt


He'll have to set quite a reserve to make a profit on those VGC graph sheets.

For those of you who talked about my auction a few posts ago...

Since I'm not selling it to the winning bidder (see thread in the forum) I have pulled the quadrille graph sheets (32 of 40 present and unwritten on) as well as a Dungeon Geomorphs Set 1 (original, cut up but appears to be complete).

I have no idea what the stuff is worth - any guesses? I pretty much have a handle on most of the modules, but some of the SUPER early stuff gives me a headache.

Since both are incomplete and/or cut-up/used they would go for less than the values listed on the site---how much less really depends on your bidders.  No idea how much less, but then I'm sure other folks can chime in with thoughts too! :D

Just David and me punching each other out I suspect.  Congrats on his new hoard.  I escaped with only one, and even then I had to stretch.

Is there anything of real interest in these? I didn't bid as I have no idea what to expect.. (also way to much for my likes;)
