Hey David, could you be so kind as to post what you find out with this book when you get it. I actually helped you out with my bid and didn't even realize. I maxed out the high bidder with my own semi-curious bid on that one. :)

No probs: shall do.
Is travelling surface, so will hopefully be some time this year... :?

(thanks for the "spot", <ifearyeti>)

Hrmm... Does anyone know whether this is actually going to fit Frank Mentzer?
Somehow I'd envisioned him as being a bit taller... :?

Difficult to explain, given that the spine looks so good. (Temporary camera or digital image processing problem, phps?).

Thanks, whoever asked... :)

Q: Hi - I am sure you have been asked about this already - it seems a wee bit faded on the right hand side - is this surface rubbing? Ta. SM
A: Yes,looks like surface rubbing & not the printing.


(So much for the description of condition as originally given! Strange how only the right hand side of the cover was affected; yet is so extensive, there...).



That was me - perhaps it looks worse in the photo - but I think that this is probably at about the right price for a WD #1 in that condition.

Strange how it gets you - I only bought my first WDs six months ago and thought "well I will be happy to have all the first ten"... now I am scouring ebay trying to complete 1-100 and yesterday I cought myself bidding on Imagine magazines?!? 8O

I am sure it won't fit Frank. He is not a small person. Frank recently emailed us wondering how we have all of these wonderful items and we told him mainly off of Ebay but had purchased some items from private deals. I asked if he was buying for his collection or planning on selling these items at GenCon but he never said. Of coarse we will be putting several items in the GenCon auction ourselves this year.

BTW:The items we have listed this week are still a bargain considering how hard they are to come by. If Frank wins them I am sure he will get more for them at GenCon.

Heya, there!
Unsure, but not that much more, IMHO. (Well, OK, prices for decent copies have been pretty crazy, recently...).
Most of all, was nice of the seller not to mention when it is so obvious and they listed all those other faults!

Might've thought it was rubbing from being a binder, but not just one side and couldn't see any spine tear (well, at the top, at least).

*g*. Well, the Imagines are worth having, IMHO. :)
And I mean in terms of readable/usable content, too (well, OK, just skip Rubic, but aside from that... :roll:)

So you didn't see the WD #1-270/300 (minus 2) auction for £150 either, then?
Guess it was invisible to all here, save John who didn't want it!

Stopped at #100 myself, although #90 would've made more sense phps.
#101 has some RQ, too, but beyond that...

Large collection in this auction. Looks like the B3 is a green cover. Difficult to tell if the Dieties & Demigods is the Cthulhu edition or not.  Should still go for a goodly amount, however, just cuz of the sheer amount of stuff.

Maybe these 2 are an indication of finally a down swing to the early Dragons. There wasn't a quiltmom anywhere in sight. :wink: I had #3 on the cheap if I wanted it, but I just decided not to pull the trigger. :? I will probably regret that eventually. :evil:

Was watching... Yeah, on the plus side, <quiltmom> appears to be happy with one of each (usually?).
Wouldn't have said that was overly "cheap" for #3 ($60), even though it looked like a pretty good copy- trimmed scan not withstanding.

There were others just about "crawled" in at $50 or so, tail end of last year. (With one of those having but a single bid, IIRC).


... will be more than happy to pick up a #1 for $100-150 some time, though! :P

Hrrr... looks like someone else maxxed him out. :(
Still an hour or two to go, though.

*nod nods*. Would sound like a logical location for a decent sale price, that!

Don't recall seeing that many of your more "unusual" items on eBay very often (at all)...

Probably should have stated "cheap" as a more clear reference to what they have been going for lately. :wink:

lot of Hollow World and Dragonlance material. Not often seen around.
30.99 and 23 hours to go. The current high bidder is furry.

Enjoy.

Well, 2 things. First off it is Aneoths 1st print Monster Manual for the 3rd time. :roll: We busted this guy a few months ago for shilling and got him suspended. I could go on for another hour about this guy, but I will spare you. I am however going to not going to spare EBay and will be promptly be reporting him for having his lying accusation in his auction. :) Hey Kev, since I know you are reading this. BYE BYE AGAIN. :wink:

==========================
Edit--- This guy is so F*cking stupid he just outed jonb7839. I know we all already know that he is the previous ETC/TGE, but he just openely listed it in his auctions. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Thanks Kevin for the concrete evidence that we needed. :wink:

Can I get him for libel, first?

(Pity I'm not a reseller, so I could sue him for potential loss of business, too. *hint*).

I already report him to ebay and I also sent him a nice email thanking him for libeling me. :wink:  Anyone know a good lawyer? :o

And Seriously some make a jpeg of that auction listing, we are going to need it.

Wasn't easy to find a category for "being a total ass" on Welcome to eBay .
Did you manage to find an better reporting route than that?

Have sent via there, and their "Encouraging Illegal Activity" category, elsewhere.

btw. That libellous text is not just in that one auction, but all nine of their RPG auctions.
Have taken .html copies of a couple: will work my way through the rest.

(Thanks for the "heads up" <bbarsh>!)

I just reported him under problems with sellers not listed.  I have saved the screen 2 different ways and I also took some very nice and clear digital photos of all 9 auctions.  I think we are set. :wink:

You might as well try the "Encouraging Illegal Activity" route, too, Brian! :)
Encouraging illegal activity
, even if you can't add any text, there.

"SO PLEASE HELP SUPPORT AND PROTECT GOOD EBAY MEMBERS BY EMAILING EBAY ABOUT THESE MEMBERS AND MEMBERS ALIKE"

Sure looks like encouraging other people to commit libel, IMO.
