Hi,

this is applicable in the USA, but remember that tracking can cost a LOT extra from other countries - an extra $5 or more from the UK for example.

Cheers,
Malc

Hilarious. I was watching some D&D modules listed under 'books' and was thinking 'hey cool maybe I can pick these up for a good price.' This mono S1 was the first to go - 30 secs before the end of the auction, it was still just a few dollars. So I put in a snipe - in fact 5 people sniped in the last 25 secs. woo hoo . My measly little snipe was $8.50 - in fact no one outsniped the leade bidder and it went for $36!


** expired eBay auction **


The next was a D3 Aussie mono however, and the winner got it for $60, my snipe of $42 was dreaming methinks.

It is funny though, when you are sitting there ready to snipe, thinking 'yay, I am going to get a bargain' and there are another 5 or 6 people doing exactly the same thing  :)

Someone made a real nice snag here:


** expired eBay auction **


Both the DMG and MM are 1st prints and both appear to be in really solid shape.

True, but the MM should be still worth more than $90 all by itself even with it.  I didn't see the note about the writing and highlighting in the DMG though, so it's not as great of a deal as I originally thought, but still pretty good IMO. :)

There were some interesting items in this lot.  Unfortunately, a reseller beat me to it.   :cry:

Well let me put it this way. If the seller ships it and for what ever reason it goes missing in the mail and the buyer makes a claim and gets his money back, it couldn't happen to a nicer more deserving seller.
