Many Thanks To:

beyondthebreach, johnhuck, improvstone, dbartman, bclarkie, McDuff, deimos3428, deadloard36, Ralf Toth, dathon, mbassoc2003, jagd, harami2000, and yes, to Brytag17 as well.

Justice will continue to prevail as long as folks like these are still willing to do the right thing, even if it does not directly help themselves to do so. All of you together may very well have saved me a big pile of coppers, not to mention great disappointment and worry. Right and truth seems to be at the forefront once again.

Over the past three pages of this thread, you folks have put together an investigative effort and made discoveries that any trial attorney would be envious of.

I (And others I am sure) very nearly made a terrible and costly mistake :oops: by not checking on something this serious. I shall not soon make that same mistake again.

Sniping is indeed looking more and more promising with each near catastrophe that I blindly stumble into… :roll:

My sincere, heartfelt thanks, and gratitude go out to all of you. :)

Just one last post to those of you who have bid on my auctions and frequent this site, I have placed new pictures and details on ALL of my auctions and ALL of my items, and this should address any concerns and eliminate any doubts you may have after reading some of the posts here, and I invite you to continue bidding if you wish. However, no more bids will be accepted from "Ralf Toth," or "Deadlord36." Any bids from them will be cancelled.

I have more items that I will be putting up for bid soon, however I have decided to wait until after I have received feedback for some of my auctions that are up presently before listing any new ones.  I apologize for the delay, but will be sending out the items to the winners of my current auctions very quickly.  I will also consider relisting The Ghost Tower of Inverness in the future as well.

Oh, and Anioth, let me know if you would like me to cancel your current high bid on auction # 5166742760 the First Edition Handbook Lot or if you'd like to keep it. Thanks.

Hey Aneoth, Thats what makes this forum so GREAT!!!. With the wealth of knowledge of the so many HONEST folks around here and everyones willingness to help each other out and look out for one another is what makes this place the special place that it is :D :D :D :D :D  :D We are all kind of like a big happy but very disfunctional family  :wink:

Group hug time!
CryFag, I already have every item you are selling, and Ralf either has them all too or doesn't particularly want them. Cough up a 1st print Dwarven Glory and I may apologize.
I truly hope you learned something from all this, but unfortunately, most people who are deceptive by nature never do.

What do you want one of those for Frank? ;)
The "value" just got trashed down from $750 to $420 for a NM copy in the latest Acaeum revision.
(Wasn't particularly well highlighted, that....).

Which is, of course, a bit of a travesty since we're both fully aware that around half a dozen people would happily throw in a minimum $500 bid should one appear in that condition tomorrow.

Unless anyone wants to settle for that cash offer, off-eBay? 8O :P

ya having a pic of a nice 1st print MM for you auction when your really selling a POS 3rd+ print is bullshit; thats Fraud and really you should end your acution and relist it with the right pictures. If I won and didn't get the books shown in your orginal pictures first I'd be draging your ass to court and then draging your ass outside of it.

So you should really relist all your stuff with the correct pictures or use none at all.

USPO priority shipping gave me price of $46.40 for my "first edition lot." The auction i cancelled weighed more than that.

It would not let me cancel yesturdays auction for some reason I dont know, so I sold it to my self. Yes, fraud at its WORST.

I havn't met your mother.
could have sent it to me m-bag's and the shipping would have been about $25 so there :)

NICE :D

$224 for a "F" copy vs. the $120 "list" price. Heh.
Placed my bid at a level I'd be happy regardless of whether I won or lost. Congrats to the reseller winner. I wonder whether he'll keep that one...

Paid $70+ less for Frank's copy which didn't have any underlining, staple-rust or surface cracking on the spine corners from the original fold (the cardstock for the T1st and the later woodgrains seem susceptable to that, from the few I've seen); although there were other faults, of course (including an interesting one on the cover which you might just be able to spot ;))

The other supplements were interesting, too.

(*waves to Ian*. Guess ya didn't wait, then! :))

Think the "Burnie effect" helped a bit, but the others didn't "fly away" at the end considering it was almost neck-and-neck to the finish post...

I got an 'Input Error' when I sent in my snipe at 20 seconds to go on Greyhawk... :evil:  :evil:  :evil: ... It coulda been mine.

Did you see what happened to Star Stone? I sniped way out of the ball park and someone was already there...  :evil: ... Now that's gotta hurt! :D

My PC crashed just a few seconds before that. Spooky... ^^
Sorry to hear that. :(

Out of interest, how high were you willing to go?

Paul paid $80 or so for a copy with missing pages (vs. the now-$9 list).

(I don't think either of us rates an OCE much over $80, anyhow).

$125? Hmm... think yourself lucky you didn't win, IMHO.

(And I was having fun tallying the "6.5" grading an the image that looked somewhat better than that...).

My "fall back" snipe was $29.82 which seemed fair enough to me, "just in case". Picked up a "spare" copy in a $40 mixed lot. Wasn't quite as good as it looked, though.

If you'd been around the "Games Gallery" in Edinburgh at the time, you could've bought the whole stack they had for sale... :lol:

I totally agree on the burnie effect, even on the more common items:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0&rd=1
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 6&rd=1
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 4&rd=1
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0&rd=1

And
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 7&rd=1.

The last one, the N4, I bought like 6 weeks ago, in the same condition or better also in shrink, and I OVERPAID and still it was only $25.00 8O

Would be interested in your 'spare copy' of Star Stone. Is it complete?
