Thanks for the kind thoughts, guys.

Now, what was that recipe for beans and rice?

Cheerios are cheaper. You need to boil water for rice, and this way you can just eat the Cheerios out of the box.

I think it's make rice, add beans. If you really want to stretch your budget, eat rice one day, beans the next.

Or you could eat the manuscript, I guess. Should have plenty of fiber.
I wonder why it is that this manuscript sold for roughly the same price as one of the "real" rares, like Fazzle or Tsoj, yet it is a completely unique item. I would think it should go for easily twice what it did. Perhaps because the market for things like the manuscript is very narrow as far as people who collect them.

Any colleges nearby? If so, go to the supermarket closest to the school — they'll have top ramen in huge barrels, priced at like 12 packs for $1. :wink:

I'm thinking $1500 seems to be the upper limit for rare items, with a few exceptions. A year ago, it seemed to be $1000 - most rares that came up sold for about a grand, give or take. Now it seems the upper limit is $1500 - it doesn't matter how rare the item is compared to other rares (if you see what I mean) - if its a defined 'rare', it will fetch $1500 whether there are 50 in existance or just 5 (or just the one, as in the case here).

The exceptions would be items like 1st print woodies, or artifacts such as the Bottle Level plans.

Either way, a fantastic pickup.

Regards

Mike

No <improv> or <IO> visible. (Or Ian to pop up with a bid to .pdf it, then resell a week later ;))

$1528 is about mid-range of what I was expecting the final result to be (had been guessing $1250-1750 - a rather wide band, admittedly!).
$2k+ would've been an eye-opener.

I'm promptly elevating this to crown-jewel status in my collection!

How much would you miss Inverness #300, then? Image

Congrats, Stephen: nicely led from the front. Hoping you've got a copy of WG5 to compare... ;)
(Maybe RJK or EGG has a spare, if not?! :D)

Would be interesing, that... :)
Personally I'd tend to agree more with the first sentence than the last; and Jeff's bids are the largest factor in the first, too, IMHO.

Going by recent sales (all better than average condition for their type); 3rd print Woodgrain = $500 (pretty flat, pricewise), unfoldered PotVQ = $600 (down), oB3 = $700-800 (thankfully well down on some of the earlier, crazy prices).

UK softie Monster Manual.

It's laminated and marked up, but might be a good chance to get one on the cheap:

Netbook so I am not sure. It is just basically a set of collected ideas from the Usenet Usergroups. I think that message boards might fall under public domain. Not sure of the intellectual property laws governing the Usenet or Message Boards. Any lawyers out there willing to give us a heads up on this?
