I was in the running up to $41 and I thought that was on the brink of too much.
But it is a sweet looking 2nd print...

And at $103.5 it still aint quite over yet.
Highest sales price for a 2nd print Monster Manual ever?
Or at least one not known to have been owned by someone famous?

Perhaps the high amount is due to the book being owned by the owners of the famous ex-smoker canines :):

We have Corgis and a cat.  The cat doesn't shed too badly but the possibility of a dog hair in your package is high.
We don't smoke and we made the Corgis quit too.

True enough.
Yes, I saw that one too...  :lol:

All of sellers core rules hardback books went for really nice prices.
Those ankle biter stories seem to be great selling points... 8)

Now that I have a NM 1st print in hand, I am hoping to obtain nice copies of other prints of the Monster Manual too.
Which is why I bid that one way up to $41, thinking that would be enough for it... :?

That was a really nice looking copy but still... $103.50 is way beyond the stretch for a 2nd print.
Especially as I found it really hard to sell a nice 1st print for only a few dollars more just last month.
Perhaps the two bidders who were fighting over it thought it was a first print?

Paid about $50 more than I wanted to, but I finally got my copy!

seems to have slipped through my fingers due to a problem with my second bid (placed ~3 hours before auction close) not being recognized.  *sigh*

Anyone here happen to win this? :D

These look like inserts from polyhedron.  Better just to get the whole magazine!

Really interested in the modules only. And I can't get the magazines at $10 a pop.

If somebody out there is willing to sell these at this price, I would buy in a heartbeat.

Hec, those are Polyhedron inserts. I believe issues 16-19 had them. My Polys are tucked away right now, or I'd check for you.
