Thanks, Hunter, for everything.


Totally off topic, but Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas was one of the strangest, funniest, and F*ed up movies that I ever saw.... :lol: :lol: :lol:

Actually, it hadn't.

£191 for #1-3? With or without a degree of (presumed) spine damage? Or the interesting back cover of #1, where a fair percentage of the money is? That image of the first volume standing spread open is kinda painful, knowing what the lower binding block of the folders is like and how tight the threads are.
£100 would hopefully be closer the mark for those...

(Oh, throw away the folders and save £10 on p&p, too ;))

Is also about the same price I paid for a long run (first 70 or so) in order to fill the few missing gaps. Hey, I got fed up waiting! (as I wrote in my ad...).


OK, a bit of artistic license on WD1-3. Maybe if "truly mint". :wink:

But some great D&D history amongst those pages.

And how could you advocate throwing away those folders 8O . They used to sell for £15 each. Although I haven't seen prices like that for a while. And they don't actually do a good job (certainly didn't in this case).

Contemplated a bid to pick up some originals to replace reprints. Or more likely supplement the reprints. But too much effort to get rid of the surplus. And who wants the later WDs anyway?

But still a nice way to pick up such a large original set in my opinion.

Speaking of large lots with expensive shipping... whatever happened to the big lot of 65 mags from isoldit? I went to check on the auction to see where it ended up and it's invalid. Did someone make a big off-ebay offer, or was it cancelled by ebay for some reason?

It went for $12.50. I don't know if that's good or bad, considering the condition it is in. What is the going price for this product?


I just got one in VG+ condition at DunDraCon for $5....

Nope, the one I was looking for was 65 mags, with SpaceGamer issues #2-14 in it. Confusing I know with the amount of auctions isoldit is running.

Granted it has a $2000.00 opening bid 8O , but if someone looking to spend crazy money, then there it is.

Not sure if we should keep this here or move it to the laughable thread...and I'm not even talking about the price.  Check out the comments section.  :lol:

1st Printing Player's Handbook, a little battered. BIN for $29.99.

Seller has more 1E hardcovers (in nice condition).

There was a larger lot (first 280 issues) which went recently for a bit less (for obvious reasons):

Actually I like the later issues - up until about issue 100 WD was great, after that... :roll:

Well now that this one has been clearly outed, I might as well show everyone else who hasn't seen them yet:

Hehe.  I see you're using my new collecting strategy:  Let Aneoth finish his collection, then bid on what's left.  :wink:

Well, I gotta warn you, that if you wait till I finish my collection, you may be in for a long wait. Since I have only just begun my meager collection.
That's why I bid on so many things. Because I have so little.......... :(

Or, you could use harami's strategy of sniping what he want's from me at the last second. (And you other snipers too, you know who you are...) He is a winner against me via sniping more times than not.....
I have yet to use sniping software.... which is likely a big help to other bidders I am sure.... :wink:

But, I am seriously thinking of getting one, and especially that Auction Sieve deal.

The minis and other stuff that I do not collect tend to clog up surfing time, by looking past stuff that I have no interest in. Other items include dice listings. :roll: Something else that I do not collect and have no interest in starting either, and there are Gazillions of other listings for items like those on E-Bay all the time.... :roll:

I know many members here collect that other stuff, and I have no problems with that. In fact (Puts on the ESP and Mind Control Helmet)You should all collect them. They are wonderful!!!
Spend ALL of your money on them! Do not worry, you have plenty of money to toss at minis.......

Yes, indeed...... my master plan will leave you low on funds... lol :) And leave More stuff for me to get.... :twisted:

BTW: What IS the best sniping and sieve software out there? I could really use some help freeing up some surfing time to look for the few items I do want, rather than sifting through the gobs of stuff that I am not interested in.... 8)

No, it probably costs all bidders money. Especially when you go in very heavy at the start.
(And it waves neon lights at people if you've really found a sleeper...).

*g*. Easier done than said!

Aneoth wrote:BTW: What IS the best sniping and sieve software out there?

I thought there was only one sieve, but I just throw in a handful of manual searches. Misses loads of stuff, though. *shrugs*.
Sniping tools. Dunno about comparisons, but per resp. to <killjoy>, http://www.esnipe.com = 14 day free trial. Throw in a lowball snipe to mark and review a day or two before the end of auction. Works fairly well, IMHO. Saves more than 1% cost, I'm sure.

OD&D set 4th- (ignore what The Acaeum listing says about "Yet another hybrid". It's not... will eventually post again on the OCE thread... haven't yet scanned the other two pics I intended to...)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5168381873
(don't know about the reserve); just under 6 days. *points to unfortunate tape*. Nice lizard Greyhawk and presumably same for the Blackmoor, though.
*
(seller also has a bashed OCE and a much better white-box Tractics)

Dragons #27, 31, 34, 35, 38, etc., small stack on Dungeoneers (looks like the "bargain pack"), a few other bits...
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5167886909
still at opening price of $15 with >4 days to go
(Think something needs to be done 'bout the shipping cost, though!)
... Ditto re. shipping for this interesting little CSIO lot (later generally, but some fairly decent stuff on the back line)
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5168232642
$35 opening bid with 5+ days to go

UK sales of Dragons #3 & 4
eBay listings
Not the best, but worth mentioning phps...
