This guy is Really excited about this auction:

You have got to love the "MAY THE BIDDING WARS RAGE ON!!" comment.  :wink:

Drat! I was hoping to snipe this one in the last five seconds. Thanks a lot. Now *everyone* knows about it.

I'll BET a B2 it doesn't even sell.


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

Eh, figure since I just got outbid I would make a note of this one. Maybe the description is the reason why there were no serious bids until 2 hours before the end of the auction. 8O  If Guido would stop bidding on stuff he might be able to get the next part of his story out before Christmas.  :wink:

What's funny about that one?



I'd guess that catalogs are pretty rare, given how often they just get tossed into the trash ;)



I sell a similar item (the "candid letter" that was put out by WotC marketing when they bought TSR), and I've sold a bunch of 'em:

I guess it's just me...to me the item your selling is significantly more rare. Actually, I've got about 20-25 of those 1981 catalogs piled up w/ all my B2's & X1's...I just keep them around to put together accurate Basic/Expert Sets with original paperwork, RPGA membership forms, etc. Maybe I should start selling them individually! :wink:

Well, for $0.99 I don't think the guy's too crazy. He'll probably sell more of those than he will B1's :P

Over the years I've sold a bunch of these in the $5 range....remember, the casual collector either doesn't have access to these or has never seen one before (since they came out 25 or so years ago...).  You should put a price on those catalogs and put them up for bid, you might be surprised!

Maybe he's shiping each one in it's own Global Priority Envelope, and taking a $1 loss to be a nice guy?

>>Someone please tell me how some sellers just don't understand that this doesnt belong in the "Games - Role Playing - Other" category.<<



Well, you COULD use one of those as a pad to sit on for gaming?  Right?



Anyway, the model is hot, so no loss?

Ok, it's obviously just a truncation of "Undercity", but I can't help but picture Kofi Annan wielding a bastard sword...  :lol:
