Well, thanks for the kind thoughts, guys.  The funny (scary) thing is, before going to bed I bumped up my snipe from $1475!  Sorry, Jeff.  My god, if I hadn't done that, the thought of losing that auction by $0.99 would have driven me off the edge.  

By the way, thanks to Frank for his typically spot-on insight.  Even before this auction was up and running, he told me I should be prepared to pay $1500.

Ian seemed to pick that up, too! Jeff; did you use that previous price as a target?

I'll wait until the high flyers have finished picking up their copies, thank you ;)



Best never to bid whole dollars, especially rounded to 5s or 10s, btw! :P

Maybe be it has something to do with the fact that the last one from the same seller went for  $1,475.00.

No, I just figured that was the magic number.

I'm assuming it is, and that they're counting the evaluation sheet as being in addition to the 12 module sheets.  

HOWEVER, and that's a big however, I'll say it once again:  I was outright screwed by this seller twice on faulty descriptions.

When you were screwed was it ever resovled?  I was planning on going after this piece.

Yes.  They refunded my money in one instance, and in the other I just kept the item even though they offered a refund.

Oh my goodness...mine just arrived, and it is nearly flawless.  Just one tiny bump to the upper spine on the cover.

Holy sh*t! :o Now that is what I call inflation, 3 days, $300. :P  Nice Win Jeff. :wink:

Thank you Stephen!  Hopefully mine is in as great a shape as yours.

Brian, inflation is actually $1,602-$1500.99 = $101.01 right?

However you have a good point.  Last year at this time $1475 was outlandish for Fazzle Dazzle, and we all thought it was hundreds and hundreds overpriced.  A year goes by and it seems like it's a different story.  Maybe it's just me though.

*<scrathces head>*

Yea, my math is a bit off there huh?! :oops: Where the hell did I get $300.00 from? :oops:

I guess this does mean that Fazzle has officially caught up with its other tourney module brotheren. :)

Aside, dammit stormbers snipe was very unexpected. I guess that means Paul is still trying to get one too and that his snipe on the first one may have just never shown up like it was planned to. This of course is not good news for me...

Maybe it's all of us? :D

Heh. Personally I can't see how it's "worth" double a black folder PotVQ, knowing now that two of the original people involved with Fazzle are/were sitting on one or more high-grade copies.

Congrats anyhow, Jeff! :)
Looks like there are more than six people still willing to pay $1.2k+, so the market will be strong enough for the next few copies. (Wasn't sure whether Paul would be in at the kill last time or not. Now I know (for ref.)).

(hopefully that does reduce the competition for the next few (!?)

Finished about 4am our time. Very long day and I'd been at the airport picking up relatives so couldn't stay awake any longer and had to put my bid in real early :(

I'll have to put more effort in on the next one (pop no-doze or something...hey there's a new slant. Hmmm sell stay awake pills to EBay shoppers! 8O )

Now, I believe it's about time for another Tsoj to come up again..maybe just after Christmas?...been a few months!

...."it will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine! bwah haha!"
