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:

Yeah, the question he posted an answer to was mine . . . what the heck is he posting it for everyone else to see! :D  Sounds like a T1st . . .


   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

You can also use the "contact member" option that appears when you click on their username.  Then the reply won't show up in the auction description.

Yes, the answer is that obvious. ;)


Then when you get the awkward sod who replies with "Please re-send that as a query so that I can post the response" you can at least decide what course of action to take next...
Have had that response several times! You'd think they'd just update the auction description, instead.

The seller just sold two originals, now a "reprint".   :?  Not sure how I feel about that.  Thoughts?

~95% chance genuine, I'd've thought, as posted wherever this sub-thread ends up.
****PLEASE IGNORE THE ABOVE****

A "2nd/3rd/4th/whatever print" is a "reprint".

I can say with near-certainty that the cover is a photocopy of the one I won from her last week.  Note the spot near the bottom fastener.  It matches the spot on my cover.

On the other hand, the contents certainly look interesting.

Oh, you're joking! :roll:

That explains why the scan is trimmed... :(

And they just happened to choose roughly the same off-white shade of cover as the genuine 1977 edition (which the seller would presumably still be clueless about?)
There goes that other 5%, if so...

I presume you're contacting them as well, to give them a chance to explain or remove the auction?

MANY thanks, Stephen.
Any chance you could link an image of that part of your cover so that we can point eBay over here, if required? (It is only a three day auction...).

I hate to further throw gasoline on the fire, but coincidently I had emailed her back and forth a few times while the other were up for sale.  She inquired to me as to why bidding was so high on this already(it was sitting at like $150 or so at the time) and so I explained to her the reasons for it. In her reply email to me she remarked that she had made some copies of the pages to give to someone(friend IIRC). Now I am not 100% sure that she meant that she was also planning on copying the whole damn thing and then listing it for sale, but maybe she did. :?

Hiya again!
Could you please explain why a reprint (= genuine later print copy) has an apparently photocopied cover according to one of the winners of your previous auctions; Interesting Items Formerly on eBay • Page 75 • Collecting General •  The Acaeum
If that is the case, could you please remove this auction as this would be an illegal and deceptive sale.
If not, please clarify the situation further.
Many thanks for your /prompt/ assistance.

Remember I commented that one of the sheet colors was presumably a reprint in the original context as I understood it? :?

Thanks for the info, Brian.

Hello everybodeeeeeeeee.  Finally decided to register and start talking to all the competition and the snipers that I almost always lose to in person (so to type).  No, really, just congratulating ChromaticKnight? on this one - 3 bids in the last 8 seconds - not bad.  I know that I'm a bottom feeder or at least I like bargains and can't spend toooo much with my wife looking over my shoulder :?  but, I still think the sellers(and Ebay's %) would profit by a resonable(30sec to 5 min) extention on end time as these last sec bidders would have a last chance to drive the last $$ out.
Well, enough from me - I've bought from many of the users on here over the last year so glad to be here....WMW

I'm surprised it didn't go for more.  If that really is a T1st PHB, that's a pretty good package for that price.
