ok, but then there is the usual problem tied to the "lot logic": you think that X persons could be interested in the whole lot, but on the other side you might have Y persons that would bid on a single item of the lot...

my feeling is that dealing with Y potential ebuyers is much more profitable and remunerative than a lesser number (because of course Y>X!)

(you could add that an other drawback is that it's difficult to sell non interesting items... but i'd prefer this rather than X buyers!)

it could also be that the seller just wants rid of them and its easier to sell them all in one go, instead of individually :)

i think there could be just as many interested in the one lot as there would be in just one item.

Basic Rules softcover.  3 days.




** expired eBay auction **




Another OCE with all supplements.  4 days left and no bids yet.



http://cgi.ebay.com/Original-D-D-Collec ... dZViewItem



Box and original contents look pretty damn good.  Really nasty looking GD&H though.  The Greyhawk has someone's name on the cover.

iirc there were 2-3 printings; it had its fans. However, I have found no differences at all between the printings, so the point is mooooooooot (as we say up here in the Dairy State).

I'm also quite sure that it was shrinkwrapped when new; I have one in that condition.

Check out the last picture.  The box is out of the bubblewrap and looks to be in very good condition.

U.S. only, again...

Out of interest, does anyone here bother to check with sellers first, anymore? :)

I still check if they will ship to Canada.  The shipping to Canada is usually not listed even if they do ship here so I always inquire what its going to be  too.

   Actually, when I clicked on the link I thought, "Hey! A nice set and a reasonable starting price!"



   But....hit the shipping "Calcola" button and you'll see what the seller is actually up to.

I wonder if the "US Only" thing just means that the shipping prices quoted only apply to the US.

I have queried a number of UK sellers about similar lanuage and they all say essentially, "Yes, I ship worldwide...but its either big dollars or weeks before you see it."

Point is...they were willing to ship international...just not at the quote US price.

Ask.

If anyone needs the Red Steel or Savage Coast audio CDs, I can, uh, give you a, errr, backup copy.  I know that the missing CD was a dealbreaker for me when I was searching for those two supplements.   :(
