It's good to see that some things don't change ...

All hail to HRM David!
Are you going to collect italian materials??? :)

Looks like someone here isn't taking no for an answer. :?

Heh, heh; I'd noticed. And then the bidding took off, big-time (incomplete was stated??).

Am guessing the seller won't complain unless the winner is outwith the US/Canada and hasn't been cleared with them first. Such an underbidder would suit them just fine, however!

Couldn't resist it, and I've got a few relatives in the US who owe a favour or three... :D

As David said, have to win it first  :twisted:

This raises a question that I was wondering . . . all the owner would have to do is add the following items:

D&D Basic Rules (Player's Guide and DM's Guide)
D&D Expert Rules (Expert Rulebook)
D&D Companion Rules (Player's Guide and DM's Guide)
D&D Character Record Sheets (1981) (it's possible AC5 was not yet ready)
MSOLO1 Blizzard Pass (with 2 pens, because one always gets lost)
B1 In Search of the Unknown (Fourth print)
B2 Keep on the Borderlands (Fourth print)
X1 Isle of Dread (Fifth print)
AC2 Combat Shield and Mini-Adventure
AC3 Kidnapping of Princess Arelina

And then, PRESTO! the set is complete.  What is that in cost?  $40.00 for NM items.  Were they shrinkwrapped originally?  Even if so, it wouldn't be hard to get shrinked copies of the mods - bclarkie could probably make a dozen sets right now!  :wink:

I'm almost certain it's not possible to source all those from a single seller in matching (NM) grade at that price.
Or are you offering? :)

Well, okay, maybe a little more and some leg work for the correct prints . . . but most these  "Acaeum collector types" probably have 50% or more  on hand already.  Certainly, it almost seems like it is the BOX by itself that is worth $300+ .



"Hi, today I am auctioning off the Box only for the 10th anniversary collector's set.  Starting price is $300.   See my other auctions where I am listing the cover only to Jade Hare - starts at $750"  :D   :D    :D

I have zero of those in NM condition. Probably a couple in VF, at best.
How 'bout you?

Beyondthebreach wrote:Certainly, it almost seems like it is the BOX by itself that is worth $300+.

It's strange how that works: an empty OCE box ain't "worth" much for some reason and an (effectively) empty woodgrain gets a mixed reception (possibly owing to condition for those?).
$300 for what's on the table, though... Yes, can see that given the Acaeum listing rather than anything else.
Will be interesting to see!

Any thoughts 'bout the mystique factor of the set: it's rare, has a kinda neat dragon on the cover and it is at the top of the list, but what else?
I've turned one down before, albeit that was a proposed trade rather than $.

Jade Hare cover = no interest at that price.
Never issued, so only of curiosity value to me, at present (and that some other person might be willing to trade for it). $150-200 perhaps?

What about a ST1 cover for a mere $1,500? :lol:

342 dollars... a reasonable price, I'd say. Although I would have put a greater bid, if I wanted to get this one.

Why in the heck is it so damn difficult for some people to spell the title correctly when the stupid book is right there in front of them???  :x  I have been doing a search every other day for the past couple of weeks for this thing and I keep coming up with zilch.



Doesnt really matter anyway.  The dumbass only accepts PayPal and I dont feel like trying to outbid Frank.  :twisted:   Who here can tell that I woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning?  :mrgreen:

You have to think of outbidding him being like a young gun in the old west trying to take down one of the famous gunslingers :)
