Good spot. Listed under "Entertainment Memorabilia > Other" and still fetching a decent price. Would be interesting to know what date is on the Zocchi guarantee given that that's a typical later box 5th. :)
The set itself looks fine aside from the slightly dished lid; however, the apparent light mottling tallies with what appears to be fairly heavy staple rust(?). Perused, then filed away in a damp storage area for a few decades? :/

When BINs are NOT the way to go:


** expired/removed eBay auction **



** expired/removed eBay auction **



** expired/removed eBay auction **



** expired/removed eBay auction **



** expired/removed eBay auction **


and...


** expired/removed eBay auction **


This is the same seller that sold the Tsojconth (spelled Tsosconth in the listing) for 19.99...  8O

Losing a lot of money listing with BINs without doing any research.

Hopefully some other Acaeum members have picked up these deals.

Some BINs are still available that aren't too bad.

This is SO incredibly frustrating. I have been watching this seller, saved as Favorite Seller, and Following this seller ... essentially the eBay version of stalking, but I get no notifications. In addition, I just checked her listings a few days ago ... would have loved to get a few of those items ... PMO  PDT_Armataz_01_19

Congratulations!  I had a snipe set that would have cost you a bit more, if it didn't win it for me, but there was an eBay glitch (!) and it didn't go off.  You got it cheap.

Well, I gave it a shot, but just wasn't willing to go high enough, I guess.

Frankly, given that it was a DM copy, I think it still went for less than it should have.  I'm surprised there weren't more bidders.  Did I miss something?

It looked pretty nice to me, Mark, just more than I was willing to pay.

I think that was a decent price. I paid a little more than that for my DM copy at NTRPG.

Certainly no mispelled Tsoconth for 20 bucks but I've wanted one of these in shrink for quite some time now. I missed this one by minutes! Oh well i got Set 2 at least which helps make up for the one I got off Zenfinite!  :lol: No, i'm only kidding, I thought that was a very fair price too.

Hopefully someone from The Acaeum snagged this:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


It lasted less than a minute at that price.  It's incomplete, but extremely rare (missing page 5/6).  Also autographed by the author.  What do you think of the BIN price?  I think it probably could have gone for more, if it was a normal auction.

I think that probably would have wnet for double that if left to auction even in that ass shape

He has the other one as well

** expired/removed eBay auction **

Pretty poor condition and hopefully complete :)

$350 as well.  I saw it before someone bid, but didn't hit the BIN because no interior pages are shown in the pictures.

is that price point fair for this item/condition?

i'm interested in all the toys/oddball items licensed by TSR back in the day, but it's hard to know what type of prices to consider

Personally, I think these should be in the $50 range for an open one.  In shrink I have seem several of them sell in the $75-$125 range but also a number at much less.

They aren't particularly rare but are uncommon (one will show up every couple of months).  The best part of this item is the box itself - the contents are about the quality of items bought from the dollar store.

thanks. i thought it was little pricey. i bid on it, too much  :roll: and glad i didn't win it. seller said the winning bid couldn't pay for 2 weeks and would sell it to me for my last bid. i was like...uh, i'll pass. lol.

this is the first one i've ever seen up for sale, but i think my searches are limited to the USA.

thanks for the input MARS

Really?  What's the significance of the small white sticker?  I've bought these for $40 or so at least four times sans the sticker.

Equivalent to the gamma world bundle?
