You can usually guess Tonya/Titan auctions by the shipping price.

My new update from Titan Games lists a new manager...I wonder if they are also responsible for some of the ludicrous pricing.  That's right, we are back to completely un-researched prices for certain items.  Check out these Call of Cthulhu items:



Terror Austalis (2319) [141858, $75.00, XF]



The Great Old Ones (2321) [141859, $69.00, XF]





And recent ebay auctions for the same items:




** expired/removed eBay auction **





** expired/removed eBay auction **




The TSR DA series:



Adventures in Blackmoor - DA1 (9172) [141872, $40.00, NM]



City of the gods  - DA3 (9191) [141870, $40.00, XF]



Temple of the Frog - DA2 (9175) [141871, $40.00, NM]



The Duchy of Ten DA4 (9205) [141869, $40.00, NM]








** expired/removed eBay auction **

Always love to see that total disconnect between reality and wishful thinking...it just smacks of completely no research in the marketplace to see what an item would/should sell for, and pricing accordingly (even with a profit helping markup).

Yes, Titan's prices are often laughable.  Once in a blue moon Titan does underprice instead of overpricing.

Their prices on common stuff are usually very good, until you look at the ridiculous shipping fees.

As evidenced by guys like Creep and Coug, shooting for the moon on the uncommons can, unfortunately, often pay off. Buyers are more guilty than anyone of not doing any price research.
