At GenCon he also had a few other 'big money' rares too, like Lost Tamoachan, Inverness, Dwarven Glory, etc.

The problem is this: Sure these prices are insane, but for someone who really wants one of these 'ultra-rares', where else are you gonna get one?

Sure, every blue moon one comes up on eBay, but who know show long till the next one comes up?  :?

I do want all of them, but not at that price.  I can wait. :)

Look how many woodies suddenly came out of nowhere this year.  They are more common than lots of other less rare items, they way things are going.  Eventually everything pops up at cheaper prices....or at least more realistic.

** expired eBay auction **




Anyone else get a bad vibe from the high bidder currently on this auction?



No real activity to speak of in over 2 years and looking at his feedback no known gaming sources. That in conjuction with the fact that the high bidder hasn't bid on any other auctions(gaming or otherwise) with the exception of PSP DVD remote in the last 30 days.  Considering that this auction is also is listed in perhaps the worst category for D&D stuff imaginable: Pre-1970 tuperware. I don't know something just doesn't feel right. :?

That's probably just the thought of vintage 36 year old tupperware.

Seller has several early print Hardcovers.  Granted all of them are extremely rough looking, but the opening bids are cheap, so it might be worth it to fill a whole:



2nd print MM:




** expired eBay auction **




another 2nd print MM:




** expired eBay auction **




3rd+ print MM:




** expired eBay auction **




2nd print PHB:




** expired eBay auction **




another 2nd print PHB. This one is really trashed tho':

You have a nose for this kind of thing...but I don't see anything odd about this bidder.

Maybe he just decided to go looking for his old D&D books.

A not-so-good picture of a massive lot.  I think that I can see Greyhawk and Dungeon Geomorphs.

Might make for a good poll.  I personally find them squarely in the "boring" category, with the exception of Aussie/UK/US 1st printings...
