Here you go, clarkie.  1976 Wonder Bread set, with Franco and Ham.  There are 24 cards total, though only 2 Steelers, but lots of the old greats are in there.  Cards are MINT.  The streaking is from my scanner.  PM me your mailing address, and they're all yours!   :D

Wow, this one made both the interesting items and laughable items thread at the same time. :)

Would just like to reiterate that if you have a GW B1 without the separate player background sheet shown in this auction, it is incomplete.

Clarkie, you are a Steelers fan? My condolences. Seems we gave you a bum cornerback this year. If you luck out, he will bust his foot again and you can sub in someone worthwhile.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Spoke with the seller, this appears to be a UK 4th printing set without the box.

This auction isn't particularly funny, but the bidding history is. Look at my bid on this(even though I didn't win) to top out our furry friend.

Gad, to predictable. :wink:

Of course, if the price hadn't gotten so high, my sniper software would have sent in a $56.71 bid to top Cougar and anyone else who might think they could beat him by only a few pennies.   :D

I'm busting myself....I hope by voluntarily coming forward I can avoid severe penalites. I was checking some of my listings and notice this in my "25 modules" listing:

C1 The Hidden Shrink of Tamoachan (TSR, 2nd print 1981 Brown Cover)---Very heavy outer wear, picture book included, handouts seperated but included, interior booklets have very heavy wear (Poor).

I don't know about you, but I picture this little mousy guy with glasses hiding in the pyramid, then trying to psychoanalyze the barbarian guy, elven thief and cleric chick (the tournament characters) after he is rescued: "So, mr barbarian, just exactly what is that GIANT SPIKED SWORD supposed to represent?  Are we trying to make up for some inadequacy somewhere else, hmmmm?"

I glossed over the boo boo when I bid on that auction.  :)

I got a chuckle out of that this morning as well.  OCE prices in particular appear to have been on the rise for some time, hopefully the values listed on Acaeum will be updated to reflect this soon.  :wink: Unless someone wants to sell me a SW OCE for $100...that'd be a juicy turnaround, I should think.

Can well remember your previous line on why the listed OCE valuations were so low...

What's up with OCE prices lately? • Collecting General •  The Acaeum

(albeit that estimate is now less than half what it was a couple of years ago for a VG copy...
Valuations ^^ • Collecting General •  The Acaeum )

Truth be told, the prices haven't been quite so crazy recently: guess it's time for me to update the latest realisations on that thread, even if not as much "fun" in that context... :)

That statement was made prior to me being on the VB, but I still stand by it. :)

Ok, I just don't get it.  This guy is selling each of the volumes separately starting at $15, and the box & ref sheets separately starting at $5.

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1

First of all, it's confusing as the buyer may not realize the box is empty.  Secondly, the single volumes seem "expensive" on their own.  Does anyone see the logic here?  Why not just put the volumes in the box?

Simple.  There's no room in the box because it's holding the rest of that hand that the Wendy's chili fingertip came from.

I was there the other day I asked for extra fingers in my chilli but they didn't seem to amused.  Then I was talking to my mom and I was like they can't get nothing right, I ordered this burger plain and here look... I raised the bun and had one of my fingers inserted under there, she was laughing so hard I thought she was gonna die lol.

I saw that too and was ver confused, :? He is however a member of this forum, so maybe he will see these posts and explain, or perhaps someone can ping him via PM. :wink:
