Dropped a large chunk of cash too I might add hehe.  8O Actually, it's making me hold back a few items, because I believe there is only say X amount of cash in the hobby at any one time, and you run too much nice stuff by people, they want to bid higher, but they just can't, you know? The woodie was the centerpiece of the collection...but...OK, I'll let you guys in.

Two more big things left in the collection:

1) 6th print OCE box mint in shrinkwrap.
2) NM Palace of the Vampire Queen, 3rd print, no baggie.

I'll probably list them in a couple weeks after this huge spike subsides...give people a paycheck to recover hehe. At any rate, what a week. :)

If you have the right stuff the money will come out.  There hasnt been a 3rd vampire queen on Ebay in a long time  8)


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

Falces, actually, if that is supposed to be a Latin word.

But isn't 'Falx' already the Latin plural of 'feltch?' Or is that a Fallacy?

Actually it is a Fallacy (but not Fallaci, she died two years ago). Falx is a singular noun of the 3rd declination, meaning "sickle".

More than extraordinary... Unique. Uniquer. Uniquest.

viewtopic.php?t=6916

As it's the only original Trampier ever to come on the market in my 25+ years as auctioneer (AND the only double cover in Dragon magazine history), and seeing the prices on brown boxes and such, I'd put this at 7,500 USD or more. (I'd guess Tim would consider an offer involving incremental payments...)

can only wish I had the money for such a great thing. Alas, I will have to  envy.
