i think its the excitement of the auction that allows the price to get to that. a BIN tends to be a lot more of a realistic, in your face, "this is what its gonna cost you" situation....

Have you asked that particular seller whether they have more copies to follow, Frank? I have, and they do... :)

(And that's not the seller who stated clearly that they had four or five...).

Thanks for reminding me I chucked my fighting wheel two years ago when I decided I had to throw away SOMETHING from my collection BEFORE I moved.

:oops:

What is that? Are trying to rub it in that I was the underbidder on all 3 of those auctions. :x  :wink:

If they try to sell at a sensible price, will save them a lot of eBay listing fees.

My CA arrived today, and at first glance has 29 pages.  Will have a closer look and return with details.

Should just list it in an Ebay store, that way it can sit around for months at 2 cents a month or whatever.  It will be interesting to see if anyone bites, I think this is the 3rd week listed at that price with no sales.

That's why you've never seen me bid in any rares auctions on Ebay...I got tired years ago of having someone kick me in the chops week after week.  I just wasn't committed enough I guess....someone out there always has $10 bucks more than me!!!! :(

Got my Fighting Wheel in the mail yesterday.  It's pretty neat looking contraption.  Overall it arrived in pretty good shape, the wheel itself is probably VF to NM (it's laminated), the sleeve I would probably rate FN to VF.  I'm very happy to now be the proud owner of a #4 rare item.



Would've been interesting to see if this was handy at all during my playing days...

My memory is probably shot, but weren't there a couple of Fighting Wheels up for auction about a year ago that both went for over $100?  Has interest in them dropped off a bit since then?

We have sold 2 fighting wheels and they both sold for around $75, which is about the going rate.

There was also one from Canada that sold for under $45 last year - I'm still kicking myself for not bidding but I thought it would go for more.

I sold mine in August for £50 ($79 at the time).


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Our buddy Guido has a very hard to find set of the original AC5 character sheets up.  I have a feeling this price is going to get stupid, these don't pop up that often:

Yeah, they do go lower, 'though $75 is closer the usual mark, I agree.



Picked up a very nice looking one for what was $48 at the time; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8722885907

Unfortunately the seller presumed the clear plastic covering was original and neglected to mention that when asked a general question about condition (it was on the Unearthed Arcana, too, after all).

Silly me for forgetting to ask specifically... :oops:
