UK sale, as usual, but appears to be in better condition than those other two copies a month or so back which weren't noted on here...

$6 with under 8 days to go (10 day auction)

(Hopefully you don't need to sell your car, just for a well worn 3rd MM, <deimos>? :?
Would expect a really good copy for that kind of money, I'd've hoped! ;))


Damn! They found it... :( I hoped you guys didn't look outside the US and could keep this one for myself... ;)

Know I miss plenty here; probably just as well given the budget! ;)
(WD 1-300 + binders for £150 was the most recent serious "how on earth did I miss that?" experience: still don't know why John didn't snag that...).

I know I am just asking to get flamed, but I can't resist...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 96196&rd=1

8O  8O  8O

I am currently selling off my entire collection - haven't played in at least 6 or 7 years and I am gonna use the cash to round out my AD&D/D&D stuff. But after seeing what these cards are going for... I have to wonder if I am going about this the wrong way!!!

I remember that particular card selling for around $200...Now they are at a grand +!!! Compare that to the most rare AD&D/D&D stuff and it makes you a little sick.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Well, you won't be getting flamed by me, at least.  I think that price is insane, especially for a single card.  What's the draw here, rarity?  They aren't old enough to get "history" points.  They aren't cool enough to get "novelty" points.  I don't get it.  (Early D&D rares are way cooler.  8) )

OMG!!!! Makes spending a few hundred on a Wee Folks module seem tame. People think we're nuts!!  

Sigh, wishing I had a few Black Lotus cards to sell.....

It's the most valuable card in Magic. Still, that is a ridiculous price.

As a current Magic player, and Lotus owner, I guess I could comment.  All of the "Power 9" cards and Lotus in particular have taken a 200+% price hike in the last two years.  This mainly due to Wizards showing a lot more support for the Type 1/Vintage format where you can play these cards.

Any similar jump for Yu-Gi-Oh cards?

DESCRIPTION: Up for auction are 2 of my favorite pieces. They are TSR Memos from Gary Gygax, the co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons and president of TSR, to David "Zeb" Cook, one of TSR's most prolofic authors,  about the creation of a Science Fiction RPG(Star Frontiers). The first memo is typed and Mr. Gygax is giving Mr. Cook some guidelines for the creation of the game. The second memo(signed by Gary Gygax in pen!) is typed on Mr. Gygax's official stationary and deals with how he wants the game presented and talks about not "watering down a good game system with purile or moronic verbage", etc.

I'll be.  I never knew there were any guidelines.


Regards,



Stephen

Basic Rules Fifth UK print. Dog eared. But they don't seem to come up too often:

Listed as only ships to Europe. So, worth a question if you are anywhere else.

For awhile it was a pretty good racket to buy Dungeon mags and Living Greyhawk mags from WOTC and resell them for twice the amount.  The Living Greyhawk Journals used to sell for $5 each (they are a bit more now) and you could get $20 each for them; the Dungeon #1's used to bring in about $35-40 and you could buy them for $25 (still the same price I see).
