I bought Snider's personal copy a few months ago, and he sent it with an essay on the item (including some reflections on working with Arneson). In the essay, he mentions that signing session, and a minor detail in his signature that only his fans would notice. Can anyone here spot it?

Watch out for that. There is a seller running auctions with a very low BIN...under $1 for newer items if memory does not fail (it does all to frequently any more). Its all fine and good until you see that their shipping is $29.99 or $39.99 per item and it is nmo refundable and coan not be combines blah, blah, blah etc. If I can find them I will be sure and post their ID.

Yeah, I saw that too. :( I feel bad and want to help, but then part of me is scared that it may be a scam. It is sad that there are so many scammers out there that it ruins it for those really needing the help. If I was 100% sure that it wasn't a scam, I would probably mail them my 3 3rd edition hardcover core rule books for free, but since I am not sure, I dont know what to do. :?

I knew that was coming. I might as well add that RPGA1, & R's 1,3,4 are all shrinkwrapped. That all being said, I am sure I will be outbid shortly.



What shitty time to be really low on cash flow. :x  



BTW, anyone have an extra RPGA1 laying around that they want to sell?

As a quick note:  while this is certainly an outstanding auction in any case, we're pretty certain that R4 did *not* come shrinkwrapped originally.  Ergo, there may be reshrinking going on, either by the seller or a previous owner.



Caveat emptor.

If it had been buried and I saw you and I were the only two that had apparently spotted it I would not, provided I caught who the other bidder was in my eagerness, have posted it. They had pictues of them on the listing search though....even a casual scanning of the listings would have caught it. Hence why I did not see a problem posting.

No probs, I knew there was no way it was slipping through, it might as well as had a Neon sign attached to it. :)   FWIW, The seller answered a question in the auction which now indicatedes the R1-3 are shrinked and NOT R4.  He does not directly address that specific question, but the person who queried him asked him if the was any warping or corner damage due to the shrink and he answered for mods R1-3 & stated R4 was just fine and unshrinked.  Interesting. :?

Umm...quite frankly that auction looks "too good to be true".  From a very low feedback seller, 8 of the rarest D&D mods all in one place.  



I'd love to get my hands on these, and would even run up the credit card for this lot, but I'm not going anywhere near it on that photo -- which looks to be a cut/paste job.  Maybe I'm just paranoid, but buyer beware.  Hopefully I'm wrong.

I kind of got a bad feeling about it as well, especially after Foul made his comment about R4s never being shrinked. With that being said though, as if wasn't evident already, I am bit paranoid when it comes to these types of things. :? I guess we will have to see what happens in the next day or so, as the seller claims he will be putting more pictures up. One thing that I would like to add that I found very strange that everyone may not be aware of is the fact that the reserve on the auction was set at $20. 8O :? I put my 1st bid of $250.00 in with the sole intention of at least meeting the reserve and when it came up as $20.00, I almost fell out of my chair. :o This of course could have been simply an error on the sellers part or perhaps he didnt know the real value of the items he was selling, but it does make you wonder :?:  :!:   This auction does seem to be quite interesting to say the least, but I am not going to inflict my paranoia any further on anyone else.
