** expired/removed eBay auction **


the seller has two other auctions for D&D Master's set boxes "in factory shrink" too.  That leads to the question.. which 'factory' are we talking about?


That kind of crappy shrink just SCREAMS "HOMEBREW" to me. Someone went out, bought some cheap shrinkable plastic at Home Depot and went to town.

The DL7 looks legit, with the shrink bunching a bit at the sides. Those pictures are tiny, so it's hard to tell for sure. Y'all must have better eyes than me! Most of those modules should have h-seams, but not all were packaged that way iirc. I wouldn't touch without bigger pictures or pictures that reveal breather holes, h-seams, and other authenticating marks.

Yeah, the DL 7 looks okay. I once had a DL module in shrink bought from a shop that I trust and the shrink looked exactly like that.
