I think the link below has already been posted. Currently at $43.21, with 1-1/2 days left.
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 5167225865
I have an update. I wrote the seller with a couple of inquiries and he just wrote back.

The PHB is a third print... The DMG and the MM are of course not first prints either. But all three of those books look to be in nice condition to me, the DMG less so than the other two, but still not bad. Overall, the lot seems to be worth watching at least and possibly worthy of a bid later on if the price does not skyrocket out of control.

Several re-sellers are in the bidding, but the cougar has not placed a bid (Yet), although I suspect that he will, especially if the price remains constant for a while longer.

Here's an early white box that I don't think has been mentioned...
cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewIte ... Track=true
The condition looks to be near mint, and there's an early Greyhawk with it. Could be a first (you could always hope.)
It's refreshing to see a good clean white box that is not an OCE.

I'm thinking the seller could use some free publicity to help with his price. :D


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

WOW and just when I had thought I had seen everything 8O

Speaking of Freudian slips, maybe he was looking in the mirror when he left this post:

Thank you

OCE, all five supplements + Chainmail:

The GDH looks dodgy at best, but considering what OCEs are going for lately, this isn't bad.

Possible Cthuluoid (mis-spelled) D&DG in possibly very nice condition (no picture) (!)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5167555576
No bids with $4.99 opening price and <3 days to go from a 7 day auction.

The seller's other auctions (especially the M&TAs) are a promising pointer, anyhow...

No idea what this is, never seen one before.  Looks interesting though.

I've seen that one before, it's one of those latter-versions of the Endless Quest books.

Not Endless Quest, it's from the 1on1 series. This is different. The 1on1 series has two gamebooks inside a slipcase, so that two players can take different sides. The '88 EQ series is just a single paperback for a single player.

More details on this excellent website:

1on1 series 1 on 1 Adventure Gamebooks

EQ Endless Quest

German Gruft des Grauens unsigned from the vault of Uwe Siebel.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

This is believed to be truly ultra-rare. The previous copy went into the hands of a very serious collector.  :wink: (not me)

Battle of the Five Armies, box set. Missing 4 out of the 160ish counters, but looks in VGC apart from that. Still at a bargain price, 1 day to go.

Regards

Mike

It's the German version of Tomb of Horrors. It was released in 1999 for the Fantasy-Spiel-Fest convention. There were 1,000 copies, numbered and signed by Gary Gygax. Here is an example:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEWN:IT

However, the unsigned version is much rarer. It is said there were only 30 or so of them. I don't have one, however.
