Look at this one.  This actually might be a nice lot, but it doesnt seem that the "seller" is very interseting in selling it:

i always find them lots have very few complete items hence the very defensive posture on selling.

TSR Silver Anniversary: Dungeons & Dragons | eBay

Cougar is such a dickhead.

SPLITING UP A SILVER ANNIVERSARY BOXED SET, IF YOU BID & WIN THE LOT YOU CAN REASSEMBLE IT, BUT PARTS ARE OFTEN WORTH MORE THAN THE WHOLE. HERE IS THE BOX ONLY IT WOULD MAKE A GOOD STORAGE BOX WHAT WOULD HOLD MANY MODULES, BUT I WILL INCLUDE HE HISTORY OF D&D, A RARE PIECE OF ARTWORK, BASIC BLUE COVER RULEBOOK, AND THE RPGA FORM FROM THE SET. LOOK FOR THE OTHER ITEMS NEXT...

Why doesnt he just say "I AM A GREEDY ASSHOLE SO PISS OFF" instead?  It would take up less space and say the same thing.  :?

Splitting up the boxed set is just good business. Once I get around to selling mine, it'll be split up as well. The "never released" module is, for reasons I don't particularily understand, worth far more than anything else in the set.

Personally, for my own collection, the only two things I'd want from the SA is the art print and the History book.

I've done exceptionally well NOT splitting up the set.  Just list L3 Deep Dwarven Delve in the title and then EXPLAIN to all bidders that it is ONLY part of the set.  Anyone currently looking for it at a high price is now educated as well.

I have also noticed a pretty substantial price surge for complete sets over the last week or 2.  I think that there have been at least 3 for sale in that time frame and all 3 went over the $125.00 mark.

It's precisely because of sellers splitting them up that the complete sets - especially the shrinkwrapped ones - will continue to rise in value like that.   :wink:

This is the one I sold some few weeks ago. My Congrats to the seller on getting even more from it than I did.
Sorry to say, I think the coin hut is a shill. Can't say I am not surprised. Both are loacted in Orange California and check out the feedbacks left by each:

First our freind Keep:
eBay rid=keepontheborderlands&items=-1&item=-1&de=off

Second his bidder thecoinhut:
eBay rid=thecoinhut&items=-1&item=-1&de=off

WIth the exception of the last 2, they are identical. I wonder if EBay might be interested in this.

As a matter of fact look at thecoinhut's bidding history:
Welcome to eBay ompleted=1&all=1&rows=25&sort=3

BUSTED!!! Bye, Bye............

Here is his feedback for reference:

eBay Feedback Profile for thecoinhut

As you all may or may not remember back in March, he was busted and temporarily suspended for shilling his own auctions with a different EBay handle. Well this is the handle he was using and he is now actively using it tyo buy again, so you may want to take note of it.


Thanks for the info. I was totally unaware of his previous username


Alright how funny is this. Despite his claims to not be thecoinhut, it seems our old freind Kevin<keepontheborderlands> has now switched his "thecoinhut" name now to thekeepontheborderlands.

Just as a refresher way back in spring whenever I had keep busted and suspended for shilling his own auctions with the "thecoinhut" user ID, he later emailed me saying that he wasnt shilling with the "thecoinhut" ID and that I was a moron and blah, blah, blah..... Now the freakin idiot has just changed his user ID" thecoinhut" to thekeepontheborderlands. :roll: What a moron. I wonder if he is planning on libeling anyone this time around. :evil:

Yes, but you haven't reported the user formerly known as "thecoinhut", have you?

Anyhow, I thought they eventually suspended keep permanently, so by changing his other user ID he's dodging that ban (a definite "no, no") rather blatantly.

Worth a try, perhaps? :?

How about this one:

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons 2nd Edition | eBay

A$$ Hole Seller wrote: reserve the right to pull this Item anytime During this Auction. This item is for sale locally and also on 2 other Auction sites. If I pull it you will be notified by this company on how this item went and for how Much. (If I have another item like the one you are bidding on, I will offer it toward your winning bit, on this auction:) Best of luck.


You have got to love blatant Ebay rules violations right in the listing. :roll:

Anyone know anything about these guys?

trollandtoad.com/Role-Playing-Games/922 ... p1n10.html

Check out the collection of rares! They must have one of everything. The only reason I've listed them here is on account of the prices.

So, does anyone know anything about them? Anyone dealt with them before? Do they visit the board?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

I bought from these guys at Gencon when they were primarily Magic card dealers; at that time they had great prices 8).  At the last Gencon in August they sat at the front in the auction and virtually bid on every item until it got to expensive for resale.  They probably think old AD&D is the next big thing in collectable games, they may be in for a bit of a surprise.  Stick with what you know.

Actually if you look, they really dont have anything really rare in their inventory. They have items listed and have prices for them, but the quanity available on almost everything is 0. :wink:
