And FIVE user IDs. There's just not a good reason for switching IDs like that ... I mean once, sure, no problem. But five times?



There's WAY too many red flags here; proceed with extreme caution.

Ad&d Box Set | eBay




the negs are from quite some time ago tho - but then so is the majority of the feedback :)



*edit*



just checked the feedbacks - man they are quite bad - would be VERY wary of sending that guy any funds!




No kidding, but it looks like a pretty nice 5th print.

1st Print DMG & 3rd Print MM no bids, an opening bid of $3.00 and just over 1 day to go:

Both are in pretty rough shape, but for $3.00 could be a decent stop gap until you can get a nice one. :)

Here is the link to the scans for the above auction.



http://homepage.mac.com/wayahead1/eBayp ... Album8.htm



There are alot of pics




This one has taken a very serious turn now. 8O I hope the people bidding on that auction have take a very close look at the larger pictures, becasue even the shrinked ones are far from being in Mint condition.

*g*. And here was me thinking Jeff might just have been protecting his investment (if he has all these shrinks, that is)... Surprised you didn't join in ;)



Yeah, already forewarned about the visible staple rust. I see a few other minor faults elsewhere and response was somewhat non-commital on warping due to the shrink *points to auction questions*



So, not "NM", but hopefully any bidders were confident as to the "actual" grade, since it's definitely "wysiwyg" owing to the seller's helpfulness on answers & pics, where requested.

I had considered it, but it is going to end up too high for me to seriously compete. Thing of it is, that the price for whats there is still decent, but if gets a lot higher, like in the $2k range, I think the winner is going to end up being pretty disapointed if they haven't realized the fact that the R1, R2, & RPGA1 all have damage on the edges/corners and torn shrinkOn top of that, the R3 looks to be opened almost completely at the top and is clearly warped. Those flaws in conjunction with the fact that, as you pointed out, the RPGAs 2-4 all have some pretty heavy staple rusting which may also be present in the R set, they just dont seem to be worth that $2k range that a mint set should go for.  Just my $.02

i am about the same there. for a time i seriously considered a bash at this, but the more i thought about it, the more put off i was really. decided to wait and save what small amount of money i do have :)



prb still a decent catch, but imo, if it was me shelling the cash, i would have wanted them in better condition for that kinda money.

In the end I guess that's a record for Rahasia, over 800 bucks!!

Also, all of the sups, in excellent condition, will be going up in the next 30 minutes (all seperate auctions).


Gus; any idea whether those supps. were just "in the same box" or purchased at the same time?

thx ^^



[edit]*meh* Just saw the Eldritch go up... Getting way too late, that :(

I e-mailed the 94.4, np Paypal seller. He;s a chump, tries to say his feedbacks are all retaliatory for buyer non-payments, blah blah blah, but if you read them he is flat-out lying, since he left good feedback for buyers and never shipped the items. Bad attitude as well. Bidding on this one is crazy, no way to cover your ass.

Sups were purchased seperately.  :D

Why the rolly eyes on my 'Fifth Printing'?  The only dates in the box say 1974, and the Acaeum says that makes it a 1975-1976 fifth printing.  Can't tell which of those years it was from.  Not that I woulnd't have found a way to work all thoose years into the description, mind you!  8)

But in this case it is legit keywording IMHO.  :)

Whenever Harami uses rolly eyes, especially if OD&D is involved, check to see if there is a date in the sentence he quoted.  I'm guessing the Acaeum description is wrong. ;)  I'd have to go hunting through the newer research threads he's started, but I'm guessing 5ths were slightly later than that.
