TBH, I am a little surprised it got that high based on its codition. It is really only a litle bit better that the 1st I won afew months ago, and the one I won went onlyfor $635 or so. :) Just my $.02


I agree, a little overpriced at $635.00 and still did not make the reserve.

Dan, you should face the fact that it is not worth $600+. It's not that no one loves you, it's that it is beat to shit. 2nd prints come up a few times a year, unlike 1sts.
Now, had you tried to sell it here in a private sale, I think you might have gotten $600 for it.

Hey, I did not know that parental outrage caused TSR to change the cover of the DMG 8O

Don't believe everything you read on the internet.  Especially eBay.  (Or I've got a RARE!! Fiend Folio to sell you...)

When I posted pix earlier this year, the consensus was that it was in the $600-800 range and I set my reserve accordingly.  I could've used the brutal honesty earlier; this reality thing really sucks.  
FWIW, if the lowered reserve isn't met this time, I'll post a "best offer" on this forum.

Dan, the recent 2nd print auction by the burnie brothers and Paul's multiple 1st print auctions during the same period might have taken some of the wind out of the sails of enthusiasm on the boards here.  You never know who's out there; sometimes these auctions really crank up in the last minute.

I am the one who actually gave you that figure, although David<harami2000> disagreed a bit and put a figure of between $400-$500 on it.  With that being said, your 1stauction did not meet the reserve and the bid was $635.00, so the $600-$800 range was pretty close to the mark. :)

well considering there have been a few floating around of late, i felt that david's figure was prb about right. its one of them, that if you'd have sat on it for a while, i think the interest could well have cranked up again, but owing to your unfortunate circumstances, that cant be the case.

i still think what its up to atm, is still a very good price for it  :? but then with frank mentioning about selling it here, that may well have been your best option tbh.

oh well anyway, best of luck with whatever it sells for - hopefully it will end up with a good price - these things tend to wait til the last 10 seconds anyway, when everyones snipes tend to come charging in :D

I am pretty surprised that this auction did not go even higher than this:



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1



1st print DMG, 1st Print MM, and 1st Print PHB.  Granted there were annoying stickers or price tags on the books, but other than that, they all were in top shape.  Nice win ifearyeti. :)

Okay, by request, I switched the title around a bit. Hope this helps. :)

Wait, in the spirit of the sentiment, let me change that to "To whom does "Thee" refer?"

I realized my mistake as soon as I changed the name. :)  It must be all these well spoken UK gents starting to rub off on me, making me want to say thee and thou. :wink:
