Gamma World did not include hex paper IIRC. Might be a nice sleeper type item in the auction.

Actually, the back cover of Gamma World was your hex paper.  You made copies when you needed it.  The paper in the box though seems to be Armory hex paper on a pad instead of the TSR Hex paper.

Thank you. I had forgotten about the back of the book. Was that all printings?

I have a 1st print here in front of me (or rather, I think that it is...) and the back cover is plain white - just a TSR Hobbies logo on the back.

The seller has pretty atrocious feedback, but worst of all he embeds a video (with sound) in each of his auctions.  *shudder*


Okay, now that these listings have ended, I can officially say that the embedded audio these idiots use is without a doubt the most annoying thing I've ever seen on eBay. Especially when it's not working and potential buyers get stuck with error messages.  :!: :? :evil:



Not that I expect iSoldIt people to be geniuses, but, seriously, they need to pull their heads out. The idea is to attract buyers, not make their ears bleed.



On a more civil note, I still wonder where they got four shrinkwrapped TSR Anniversary sets from ... failed game store is the only answer that immediately comes to mind.

Heh, you and Frank both won 2.  I hope you both checked the shipping costs on those sets before bidding.  Shipping to me was coming up over $20.00. :?

^^^ Hey, Frank, I didn't realize you were going for the clean sweep on those anniversary sets. Sorry about that.*

At least you've got the consolation of pushing my bid up into the stratosphere for the fourth one. :)

+++++

*not really, though.

Just one for me (he said with some hesitation, wondering if he submitted two snipes ... :oops:).

And the shipping is absurd. I believe I'm looking at $16.50 — and for Frank, there is no combined shipping. I've always felt that was a total joke; I mean, what exactly is stopping them from combining the items?

Considering that even if they don't want to combine shipping costs, its not like they couldn't just slap one each in a Flat Rate box for a whopping total of $8.10 each, is what makes it even worse.  Hmm, nothing quite like raping your customers for a good $10-$12 for your handling fee.   :roll:   I was interested in at least one or two of those sets and that ridiculous handling fee alone is what tempered my bidding to the level of what it was.

I don't blame you at all. I'm looking at $109 out the door, which is just way too high. But this will be my "keeper" set*, so I decided to put in a strong snipe.

Well lessee...

I got 3 for $92.68 each including shipping, all in the shrink.
An L3 recently went for $86.
The Story of TSR thingie is often sought (don't have ave. prices yet tho).
Shrink'd versions are going up fast 'cause some sellers are breaking them into parts for resale.
I'm in the habit of sitting on stuff until it's appreciated. ;> and...
(Prediction) The 25A logo G1G2G3 series will soon start appearing as a set and will do well.

So I turned off the speakers (annoying infomercials) and bit the bullet on their exorbitant shipping (and will rarely if ever buy from the chain because of it).

So for now, I'm fine. :) We'll see what shows up in the mail from ISoldIt of Kent, WA. Two of 'em will be for sale, maybe at GenCon. And who knows, maybe they went the easy route on the photos and one of 'em will have a little sticker at bottom front right that nobody at the store cared to notice... or maybe I can get Jeff to autograph one or two prints just for me; I useta be the music director at his church.
