And what am I getting for my $30 bid?


What do you mean? It is plainly obvious in the sellers description:
Crack-Head Seller wrote:60 d & d in good condition with dragons.


I especially love the "with dragons"

:P  :lol:

Minis at a guess.
Possibly quite a good deal if there's an overlap between the misused eBay "boxes/packs" category and "dragons" noted in the description.

Go on, someone! 2 hours to go... :D

Its not so much the item description that's laughable than the item itself.  If this isn't a crass example of milking a brand for all its worth, I don't know what is.  I'm just not quite sure which brand is being milked more...

There's no real significance to it, just something I put together while playing with the Historic Tale Construction Kit:

Object not found!

Don't know if this is laughable or not.

The auction title says Dungeon Master's Guide, the text description says Player's Guide, and the picture is of a Monster Manual.

B2 The Keep on The Borderlands | eBay


Just for yucks I wrote him:

Oringinal AD&D B2 The Keep on the Borderlands
8770285018

Question:

Your description states 1st printing edition. Yet the 1st and 2nd printings of this product have wizard logos, not the elongated TSR initial logo shown in your picture.

Do you guarantee that what you'll send is a 1st printing, as you state in writing?

Answer:

that picture is a stock photo.
the one I have is an original 1st edition
sorry for the confusion
robert


So no word on PRINTING per se. Who knows? With wizard logo it could be...

a 1st (with the line "also suitable for use with AD&D" front cover)
or 2nd (wizard again but without the AD&D).

The one pictured is either
a 3rd (shorter with face logo but G & D modules still listed rear)
or 4th (taller again, only newer products on back)
or 5th (as 4th but shorter)
or 6th (shorter yet, & not as wide)
or 7th (new stock # stacked on back with ISBN)...

but it isn't an 8th (3-hole drilled, ISBN left stock # right).

Ad&d 2nd Edition | eBay

Not much needs to be said here, just look at the pic. 8O  I wouldn't be surprised if that book turned into a green slime by the time it arrived in the mail. :roll:   Of course, if you are interested in it, you do have thr privelage of paying $10.00 to have it shipped to you as well. :roll:

Its counterpart isn't faring much better either:

Ad&d Module | eBay

The line that confuses the hell out of me is the We have been in the Industry for over 50 years.  I must have missed that last 18 years somewhere along the line. :?

It's a perfectly wonderful auction, nothing funny there.  However:

Nope.  I found a loophole.  She keeps telling me I have to read to the baby.  Never said what. ;)
