Thanks for the warning.

Hmmm, I think I know a couple of other bidders who might be interested...

Hmmm.  I've bought from them in the past, and was happy with things.  I don't remember what, perhaps it was a fiction book vs. a gaming book.

It could be just my own bad experience.  It is something to keep in mind when bidding though. :wink:

An interesting Player's Handbook (I say interesting to hide the fact that I'm not the expert on early printings like most of the rest of you) but the D&D w/Cthulhu is worth the price of admission at the moment.

It was interesting when taken in conjunction with the auction posted immediately below - comparing Creep's price with a more realistic one.

Seems Creep has reduced his price on that set again. Still way to high, but getting closer. :)

So he has..... back in triple digits.

I like a sentence he has in his listing - "PLEASE CHECK MY OTHER ITEMS FOR VALUES YOU WILL NOT FIND ANYWHERE ELSE ! ! !". He's right - no-one else has values like him. I would have objected if he'd said 'value' instead of values though.

Regards

$999 is "getting closer"? :?:
The auction price was $676 and that went the full distance; eBay.com Item Bid History .
(Before any mention of possible smokiness, too... Has anyone yet asked about that?? :?)

Is just another market distorter, alas, IMHO: like Keep's (similar name!) WoM was.
Someone will eventually "believe" $900 is a bargain and/or bid in proportion for the single mods currently up.

Yeah, I noticed that, too.  I think the seller should have used even small font to point that out at the end of the listing.
