Heh, reduced it by $50.00. :roll: Seems like finding the ceiling on the totally undervalued RPG market isnt as easy as it seems. I guess maybe we are all not so stupid after all. :P

$30.00?! :roll: $9.50 shipping?! :x That deserves consdieration for the silliest auction price of the year. If that thing sells, I am going to start selling used toilet paper for $20.00. :x

Spotted that too.  But only because I was hoping that his other items might be ADD1E c.1978/9 and perhaps hint at a 1st printing of sorts alpha/beta/gamma/delta/epsilon/zeta/eta/.../omega - I've lost track).  Optimistic?!? :oops:

Probably reaching there. :)  I can tell you for sure that is not a 1st printing, but it could possibly be somewhere in the 2nd printings. It wouldn't hurt to ask, although even if it has the MM pages bound into it, in that condition it probably isnt even worth the $30.00, let alone the amount it would cost it would be to ship it out to you if he is charging $9.50 for US shipping. :roll:  Lookig at the condition of it, I would say the likelyhood of it being a DMG with MM pges is exceedingly unlikely based on the fact that in most people's minds, that DMG with MM pages in it is a defective book missing material and so it should not have seen that much usage. :wink:

   Hey, maybe it's like buying a rifle....the one that actually got used in battle is more valuable than one from an armory.  Right?

    $30 is funny...probably has more to do with sentimental value than the item itself.

    I say go for it, dude!   If you must sell your trusty old sidearm, make sure it gets a true, Viking funeral!

My guess is that the seller browses these forums, and that it is a reference to this thread: ;)

<edit> Oops, it is actually the same auction, just a 10 day one. :oops:
