Well, I was hoping no one would notice that, but I guess since the secret is out, its time to throw in a bid. :twisted:




Sorry about that bclarkie :(  Just emailed to find out if the reference sheet is still in the back of the book. Looks like the overall condition is pretty good. Might go after this one too, my first printing is in horrible condition.




I'm in. My first has got masking tape on the spine. (hey, it was the first hardcover I ever bought and I used it everyday that summer.)


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

This guy can't be serious. Sure, I see all kinds of people paying $5 for B2.

Marlith,

Yes. Only ran one year. I think it was a little ahead of its time or too close to the truth.

    As far as I can tell, this guy should get his asking price.



    This is an entire collection of modules for less than you would pay if you had to buy them individually.



     Just the savings on shipping might make this one a bargain.  



    Don't you think so?   8)

Ad&d Modules Lot | eBay



   IF current trends hold true...shouldn't this lot sell for around $120?  Creep1962 is in on the ground floor with the first bid on this one.     :?

Interesting:



deimos's 1st print DMG has an opening bid last week of $39.99 and no reserve and receives ZERO bids:



Dungeon Masters Guide 1st Edition | eBay



This week he posts the exact same 1st print DMG with a $0.01 opening bid with a $39.99 reserve, and he gets this  :? :

Yup...kinda stunned.  I did jazz the description up a bit, maybe that helped, I'm not sure.  But finally a rabid newbie bidder works in my favor!  (We're still not even yet, though, newbie bidders...so be forewarned.  :twisted: )

Well done D!



This should come as no surprise to anyone  .... Sales that start with a low value even with a reserve tend to attract more interest.

Only if it's a rarer item. On the common stuff, it's a huge gamble starting with a cheap price and hoping for a bidding war.



My online store is mostly stocked with the fruits of low-starting-price auctions that failed to generate the desired bidding war ;)

There is also a First Print DM Screen in there as well. :wink:

Thanks did not catch that. I have never paid that much attention to the various DM screens.

Thanks, bclarkie, another reason to shake my fist at netrodent.  :roll:  *sigh*  See, it happened like this-- last week I wasn't even looking for a first print DMG.  Then I got edged out by harami on the EPT, so the wallet was already open and I thought what the hell....



I'll get you next time, netrodent, next time! (And until then, stay off my lawn!  :wink: )

P.S., It would help if at least one person would pat my head and say, don't worry, it's still a good price.... :D
