The E'A chronicles is being shilled. I have been corresponding with the seller.
-----------------
Interesting, considering I'm the seller... only 3 people outside of the current bidder have been "corresponding" with me on this listing.  I have provided each with my phone number, yet none have the stones to give me a call...

Do some research Deadlord36 please before you throw out such accusations.  I invite you to provide publically whatever you have to back up your assertion, and I invite anyone else to look at any and all of my current and past listings.

The page cannot be found

So, $68.75 to the UK if they are prepared to ship surface (+ handling fees :? )

Hmm... Was told shipping options were as listed; viz. "Global Express Guaranteed or Global Express".
via Global Express Guaranteed® Document Service, 32 lbs = $165.00.

Are you feeling lucky, John?

Amen. I probably wouldn't have won. But at least one of us would probably have helped push their price/profit higher.

Cougar is not on his way.  I won the lot.

"Anyone want to take a chance on this lot? $51 with 5 hours to go. Early MM, PHB, and a true first DMG in there, along with an early, possibly 1st print WoG."

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8&rd=1&ssp agename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&rd=1[quote]

I guess it helped me that the seller has outrages shipping cost for you boys overseas.  It cost me $23.  

I was worried Cougar would show up but he was no where to be found.  I sweated this auction from the start.  Its been a long week.

What do you all think of what I payed for it ($142)  Good Deal, okay deal, not so good deal.  I would like to know what you think.

Not bad at about $4.00 an item.  Hopefully you filled some gaps in your collection.  Some of those Dragon mags have some decent adventures.  Got the collecting bug pretty bad right now huh? :)

Yes I filled some gaps.  In fact, the only duplicate item I already had was a True 1st DMG and the Vault of the Drow module.  Everything else is new to my collection.



I just started a new job.  So my collecting bug has been reenergized with new money, if you know what I mean.

Congrats on you win.  But one question, what is the map that is laying in front of the PHB & DMG?  I've never seen it before.

To be honest with you.  I too, have never seen that map.  Look forward to actually getting the lot to check it out.
