You could have offered to pay in cash and inspected the spines on the spot.   8O

That might've been an interesting experience had they not been up-to-scratch.

(Comparable to trading in tiger skins on Birmingham New Street railway station concourse. But that's another story...).

*confused. Is familiar with New Street Station and can't think of anytime tigers or skins have come into the equation*

*g* sry ^^

Really do need to sort all those out, some time... :?

Me too.  I'm fairly sure that I have some with loose covers, creases, etc.  I think that #1-20 are generally OK (quite a few in the last half with mailing covers).  But some of my originals #40+ saw a lot of use.  I was careful.  But by #60s they were simply getting too thick for their own good.

Loads available on the interweb e.g.
Forbidden Planet International Boxes, Bags & Boards
Mega City Comics Bags Boards & Boxes

But I think they all use this supplier.  Says trade only.  But there is a link to a mail order retail booklet.

And at least a couple of eBay traders

I keep meaning to try them out.  Anyone else got any recommendations for UK suppliers?  I'm sure that I've asked this before.  And got a reply.

Have been relying on freebies too.  Anything I buy that is fairly common and arrives in a bag then donates it to something more deserving.

Okay, I must be losing my mind, but I was just running through my searches and could have sworn I just saw an ST1 but it is now gone.

Did someone here score it on a BIN?

Same thing happened to me week ago. I ran across a lot of three D&D spiral binder notebooks in mint condition. I asked the seller a question...which was never answered. Next day I couldn't find the listing anywhere...


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

Over the weekend I encountered a similar problem.  I had items in my watch  list that didn't show up when I would try to view all of the items from that seller or when doing a keyword search for them.  Seems like it you knew the item number you could find the listing, otherwise you couldn't.

When that happens I just assume that shenanigans have occured.

   Sometimes, the listings reappear as if they had never been gone.

    I call shenanigans!     :o

Happens to me all the time and has done for a very long time e.g.

A long time ago these would have returned the same results.  But it seems that their visibility is affected by the geographic availability to a particular eBay region.  If thats clear :?

Why, Black & Burley, of course.

I suspect one of the following might have happened:

-I'm losing my mind (more likely);
-It was there, and the seller took it down after receiving an offer or after having realized an error in the listing.

Keep an eye out...it might pop up again in the near future.

This is actually quite normal. Your first link is from ebay.co.uk and only shows the items which the seller has selected he is willing to ship to the UK. Your second link shows them all, because you're looking for US shipping willingness through the US site (hope this all makes sense).

I use this ebay ability to check whether all my items have worldwide shipping and ebay hasn't let me down so far. Hope this info helps.

But this didn't use to be the case.  If you clicked on "items for sale" from the member profile it would list every item for sale regardless of which eBay portal you were using.
And if you used the search facility but ticked the box to also see completed auctions, all of a sudden the auctions which didn't appear on the previous search would now appear.  This may still be the case.  I haven't checked.  But both "features" have been reported to eBay.

Via the profile of a seller, only available items for the country of Ebay portal used is shown. If you are on ebay.co.uk and the seller don't want to ship to UK, when you click on "view all this seller items" you wouldn't see them. On ebay.fr it works like that, and ebay.co.uk I notice the same matter.

Strangely, when you browse categories on ebay.com, an important part of UK items are shown... regarless you are selecting worlwide or not.

So, was there an ST1 auction, or wasn't there? It seems odd that an ST1 goes unnoticed in this forum (unless everyone tries to keep it secret to prevent bids from running too high).

I'm guessing there wasn't.  At least, I'd be bragging by now if I had "picked one off"!  :D
