Any idea as to why so much for recent Dragon or Dungeon magazines?

There is a Lost Tamoachan up:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 9&rd=1

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

According to the Acaeums lists the most ever paid for a Lost Tamoachan was for a Mint Staff copy of which there are only 30: M (Staff Copy): $1350 (8/02, GenCon auction).

At $2000 for the opening bid, he is being overly optimistic I think. :wink:

I don't think it will sell, but I have been surprised by E-Bay buyers before. We shall see. I wish him the best of luck in either case. I know I shall keep a watch, but I will not bid.... so you guys with the really deep pockets will not have to compete against me at least.

Of course, if the opening bid had been more realistic, well then all bets would be off and the bidding war would be on... :)

Obviously very optimistic, and I believe it was "5 cent listing day" yesterday...of course if I had $2000 USD to burn, I'd be mine...

Shit, mine is pretty much mint and I would sell it for much less than that.

good spot and a "nice to have", IMHO :)

"the inside is in mint condition". *blinks at that line*

Heh, heh... I remember the last one which Paul snipe-bid just to make sure it didn't go cheap. (Thanks). Was in better condition, though.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5929977984

Checked up, since, and found out that it was printed by Heritage Models- can't find the original quote again now (probably in an old NFB), but was mentioned in the ironic context of TSR slapping bans on any "unofficial" product.
And certainly amusing, given what else Heritage was printing for TSR at the time ;)

(Kinda tallies with the comment in the Arneson interview in Pegasus #1, too;
judgesguild.net )

$624 for a miniature I can't use, or even check to see if it is complete and/or has any factory damage? No thanks.

Hi David -

I'm thinking 2 issues in a lot of 5 is pretty good odds... well worth bidding on. Shouldn't have any problem reselling the three duplicates I'll get.

The other lot, where you'd pickup one issue out of six - that's a harder call. I'd probably still bid on it if I needed one of those issues, and throw the rest up. There's always a market for SG so you wouldn't have any problems passing any extras along.

Heh, heh... You think, Mike?

Was $296. *eeps*.
Even with "a few smudges here and there"...

Anyone want to buy #5-9 in NM condition for $240??
Thought not! :P ;)

=

Saw ya got blown out the water, too, for #10-14!
A mere $138...

Any thoughts from the underbidder appreciated!

I am surprised no one has pointed this one out yet.  Judging by the bidding history, it doesn't look like it is a big secret to the board:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... RK:MEWA:IT

Looks to be a fairly nice second print copy, just some small bends in the cover folder.

Empire of the Petal Throne:

Anyone know what printing that is?  Or is it a cleverly bound photocopy?

*lol*. Might even have been a genuine listing error, too! 8O
I stand corrected, if so (hey! there's a first time for everything on eBay...).

Enjoy; all you U.S. bidders (and Canucks disguised as such!)

I'm from NY, eh.  :lol:
I'm assuming someone inquired about the printings of the ambiguous MM/PHB, or they could be disappointed later.  Don't you hate it when sellers conveniently leave the key details out of the photos?

Currently at $189 with just over 2 days left.

And that guy will not even reply to E-mail inquiries with anything like a good response to a normal question either. They send out a standard note saying that the listing if for items on consignment and that they know next to nothing. They won't even look in the books for specific easy to confirm info, like: How many pages are there in the Deities and Demigods book? :roll:

I am willing to take the chance up to now, but if my latest very specific inquiries remain unanswered to my satisfaction, then so be it... ifearyeti will win, or some other bidder... In any case, I doubt that the bid will remain at the present price. If my current bid does remain, then that is just fine too. I will know the answers to my questions when the box arrives.

Well, I was actually planning a fairly substantial snipe :D , but the bidding war that has now taken place will effectively eliminate that possiblity (which after further review may end up being a good thing). The seller is a consignment shop which is probably scary enough, but the sellers total lack of responsiveness to even simple inquiries (they can't even answer a simple page count question? come on give me a break :roll: )is a huge red flag. Their feedback and their return policy also leads one to believe that if you win this auction and it turns out to be a bunch of garbage, don't expect any kind of response.
All items sold AS IS. Returns are accepted ONLY if the item was not as described in the auction. Buyer must contact us at [email protected] to initiate a return within 3 days of receiving the item. Buyer is responsible for return shipping charges.


When you consider the fact that there is no actual description, it is just a listing of items that are included, then according to their rules they would not even take it back unless the items in the auction listing weren't included in the shippment. So basically their return policy is you buy it, you don't like it, I guess that you are SOL :evil:

But who knows maybe it will work out for the best.  I hope for whoevers sake that is, that it does.
