8O  is right! I was expecting around $75. I am starting to wonder if I should have held onto my extras ... I think we gonna see a much higher value in the next year or so...

$75 was about right this spring...this fall the prices have jumped on anything even remotely rare by about 30%.  No apparent reason.

Could be, but my gut feeling is that dbartman was probably closer to the mark:

Couldn't agree more, but I suspect from the nature of some of the comments on various threads that quite a few of you knew where my ST1 ended up.  



And to think I was advised that if I kept hold of ST1 it might go up even beyond the $2500 I got for it.  Mine was NM, this is not as rare as was once thought, and yet the bonkers bids keep coming in.  If I was to pay big money for a RARE, it would at least have to look, feel and smell like a RARE.  This doesn't.



Having had an ST1, I'm very much in the I JUST DON'T GET IT camp.

Amen to all that, Jon (including the "smell" bit :P).



Is not as though prices only go in one direction, though. Even some of the "rares" have decreased in value (and/or should that be "desirability"?), although some people might be reluctant to admit that.





p.s. Thanks for your note on the supplements; will recheck against that thread later. No, I haven't completed the list since only a few people bothered to respond or ask what I was trying to do... :(

funnily enough i was talking to a mate the other day who does have ST1 - his words were summit along the lines of "its amazing that it commands its value. as a module, its a pile of shit. if i had a rare wants list, it would be at the bottom". having seen it now, i have to agree really. i would like to have it someday, but i think there are many other items i would much rather have first, such as minty tac cards, C1/C2, another PotVQ and a cpl of other things....



but anyway...back to more important stuff :)


Are we nearly there yet?

Thank you David,

I really don't think I'm going to win it ...  :wink:



Multiple bids: my computer had some problems today ... or maybe I've done something wrong in bidding  :oops: .



Sorry.

I meant be careful depending on whether eBay UK allows you to bid less than a full increment above your current "winning" bid or not.



If you are winning at 100 pounds and it lets you bid 100.01 pounds, OK.

If you are winning at 100 pounds and it will not let you bid less than 102 pounds (a full bid interval), be very careful because it means that the underbidder can increase their bid without any risk of "winning" the auction- allows them to find your maximum and decide whether to win or not, at their leisure; or else just make sure you "pay" your maximum.



Trust that makes sense; apologies have to dash out now.



Enjoy, y'all... :)

Here is another 4th/5th print white box set in very nice condition, this one is in the UK.  It also has 2 lizard man supplements Grehawk and Eldritch Wizardy:

Under 20mins to go on the ST1.



I really hope someone from here gets it. It'd be too bad if it was sniped last minute by a reseller.



*keeps refreshing page*



*yes, I have nothing better to do on a sunday aside from play Diablo 2.


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

*resisting urge to post it on the Silliest Auction Price thread* :)  

But I'm sure it'll skyrocket even more in the last 2 minutes, they almost always do.
