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?


I'd bid on that box!

Unfortunately, the spare booklets I have are not from an OCE set :?

Rats!

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:

Doh!  I thought that name sounded familiar...no offense meant, it just seemed odd.

I'm in the same boat.  If it were a 5th printing box, I'd think about it.  :wink:

Yea, it's the same guy from here. I used the advice I found from here and listed them separately because one of the strings said they brought in a better price that way. I figured the whole set wouldn't be worth as much since it is incomplete (missing one reference sheet). Thought this way anyone who wanted to fill out an incomplete set could do so or maybe get a better box (not that this one is in GREAT shape but it's not too bad). Included the reference sheets w/ the box just so I could sell it faster. (I only have a couple of weeks left before I bolt to Montana for the summer)Listed the booklets at $5 less than the average prices I saw on here, it seemed a decent starting point, but given my inexperience with ebay I could be wrong. The whole sets seem to hover at around $100 and divided by 5 (box, sheets and 3 books) I got $20. As to the box being empty, I figured all you savvy collectors would know given it's price of $5, but if someone beefs after the auction I would refund their dough no sweat. Also figured since the books are from the same seller (me) it would be obvious they are not included.
Sorry if I caused any confusion. :oops:

Just a guess, but I think they might have been inspired by this one (albeit naively):

That guy actually emailed me his auction link. He must have saw that crazy ealier auction for the 2nd print PHB and the 1st print DMG and doesnt know the difference. :wink:

IMHO, he knows pretty well the difference - and twisting the meaning of the words to his advantage - just look at the listing. I find it misleading.

He says sixth printing of the PHB, and first edition of the DMG. If he's aware of the printing of the PHB enough to write it down on the description of the object, he should have been of the DMG too, isn't he?

I generally think for the better about people, but here - as we say in Italy - I feel a rather smokey smell...

:?

Yeah, points for effort if nothing else (doesn't even look like a classic MM shambling mound!).

Hahaha,

I saw that one a day ago as well. Thought about e-mailing the guy whether he was willing to 'split' the lot, but then decided it was way too much trouble. Or can I interest anybody in a ludwig drumset?;)
