Deadlord36 wrote:$50 for Dungeon Decor is a joke.


The TRULY frightening thing about the Dungeon Decor auction is the "Shipping & Hadeling fee".  I don't know about you guys, but I've never enjoyed being hadeled.

Aside from Creep's attempted auctioning (again) of this complete set (plus a few individually),

an R-4 from an unrelated seller. Starting price may be a bit high at $200..

the cover looks a little on the average side imo - IF you were going to bash $200 at it.

There is a very disturbing trend this year.  The Acaeum's NM valuation is becoming the "average condition" price for these semi-rares.  Same is true with the OCE.  :?

Doc's Island defintely seems to have seen a serious trend upwords over the last year or so, although of all the R series, it defintely seems to show up less than the other 3.

UK auction, OCE set with an earlier print GH, BIN of ~$86.00:

Dungeons & Dragons Collector | eBay

Box is pretty hammered and and the M&M has some visibly heavy staple rust, which doesnt seem to be apparent in the other 3 booklets.  Might be worth a query or 2. :)

BIN has gone cos some bum-stain has bid already  :x  notice also, that the seller looks like he/she doesnt normally deal in this sort of stuff, so the questions asked might not get the answers quite the way you want.

Is that an OCE....my eyesight is getting real bad. Need to sell some stuff to buy new glasses  :)

I saw that shortly after they posted it (and almost became the bum-stain...glad I passed on bidding), and have looked at it twice more and never once paid enough attention to notice the Greyhawk  :oops:

Nope, its actually not an OCE. :oops:  I just was looking through stuff and saw it and posted it real quick because of the BIN.

Very well could be. I do not recall ever seeing something like that before. It does not fall outside the scope of things they might have created....I had not seen the  bubblegum until when it popped up on eBay so I am sort of wet behind the ears on the non standard items I guess.

I don't know. It seems kinda of out of place for rpga. Especially considering the 1980 date the seller notes. It is a strange item to be produced specifically for rpga members.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Hmm... Gateway to Adventure (not included), packing box, etc., in the photo.
"Label" is strangely place, extremely fresh compared with the foam inset, rounded at top, cut square at foot, looks like it has a date above the logo(?) which is also not particularly square to the edges.

I'd be inclined to ask the underbidder whether the minis alone would've been worth the money...

Well, all I can say is that the seller managed to cost themselves on that one.

Aside from their generally slow/indifferent responses, they also neglected to do anything about their auction settings BLOCKING bidders from outwith the US & Canada! :roll:

as jeff won it, dont suppose it would have mattered one way or the other :)

mind you tho, something still dont seem right with that PotVQ. still dunno what it is, but something dont look right.

still not convinced with regards to the ziploc bag and the maps. are the borders like that? i cant remember without getting mine out of the bag to look at again (which i aint going to do so)....

BUT good win jeff, nonetheless! i am prb just being too suspicious and its a great win.

i sent 4 questions to the seller and got one reply with regards to the shipping, which was a standard one that others got too.

Would've cost best part of $100 more, though! ;)

I don't like the ziploc, either.
However, the seller finally realised my request was still o/s and posted a close-up of the map page about two hours before the close.

Between that (ignore the crease, Jeff!) and the full context of the find (plus the few other answers I received), was 90+% confident that it was a good 'un.

*shrugs*

Oh, and Happy New Year to y'all (& the US follows in our wake, as ever? :P ;))
