Little bit bummed that the seller wouldn't ship outside the lower 48, but hopefully someone will snap it up. Apologies if I killed anyone's snipe, but it looked like it was slipping out of notice. :wink:

1st print Gods, Demigods & Heroes, btw... :)

Here is an interesting lot:

Dungeon Game TSR | eBay

Looks to have a 5th print white box set a 7th print Greyhawk and 2 pretty decent looking basic sets. One of which is a Red Mentzer set and one is a later print Holmes set. Also an early print(1st?) JG Thieves Fortress of Badabaskador, just over 4 hours to go.

If you want the Ref sheets to that 5th you better buy this auction to:

Dragon Quest Dungeon | eBay

he split it from the set it seems

    God, your dorm life was a lot different from mine!  Did you hunt strippers or purchase them pre-packaged at Safeway?

The DMG is not a first print (you can tell both by the red lettering in the yellow banner and the fact that it has white flyleafs), however based on the description of the seller it seems that even better yet though, the PHB may in fact be a T-1st. :)

There are no bad editions of D&D, just Boring Players and Unimaginative DMs.

There is a difference between Old Milwaukee and Milwakee's Best(aka "the Beast"). :wink:   The Beast is actually produced by none other  than Miller. :D   Truth be told though, if it wasn't for The Beast being sold at a cost of $8.60 w/tax(yes thats right I remember it to the penny :lol: ) per case, both my high school and college years would have been much less eventful. :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:

Old Milwaukee, Milwaukee's Best, Grainbelt, you name it, if it was under $10 a case, we drank it.  As for the strippers...well, all I can say is:  Augie's on Hennepin Ave. in Minneapolis.  I bet Guido knows what I'm referring to, even if he won't admit it here.  :lol:

   Doesn't he have the right to post the questions he gets?

Sure he does.  But it's extremely annoying when you're trying to keep the auction quiet and to yourself. ;)

Yeah, I wrote the above sentence with "mock" frustration.   :D   Actually, I kept pausing before sending it because I had a feeling he'd post the response.  

By the way, it just occured to me - if anyone really wants to avoid getting their question posted, they could try sending an innocent question (like how much is shipping, etc.)  Then when you get a response, send a reply to their email and say, I just thought of something else.  This would be outside of ebay and couldn't be posted to the auction.

Just a little tidbit that occured to me . . . (I'm so paranoid of ebay, that whenever someone queries me about "outside" ebay sales, I only reply through my yahoo account so that the conversation can't be tracked).   :D
