Maybe the Wintercon module was worth 90% of the price?



On Mar-26-07 at 16:16:22 PDT, seller added the following information:
This item does not have the Wintercon Tournement Module it is a misprint.
Only World of Grayhawk

Castles is not even complete.  These 3-D building sets TSR put out are kind of neat but once they are used they are somewhat valueless.




Complete sets have sold for upwards of $70 recently. Granted the pics a little off though. I figured someone overseas might need it. Besides, I haven't seen them listed very often.

:wink:

8O  Seems more like a bidding 'pride' war than a reflection of the true value of the item!  :)

Perhaps you should write underneath your auction: "Notice to bidders: just remember, you are the greatest, don't let any loser outbid you, otherwise you'll be a big loser yourself."

Here is an X13 for just UNDER $50.00 with only 7 hours to go 8O  Maybe we might get lucky and win it for less than $60.00 w/ S&H :roll:

That's a nice idea, but perhaps they could feel being insulted and so they could not bid  :P  Anyay, I'm sure this price puts to shame most of the items listed in this thread  :wink:

OK...I was ready to post this one when it was at only $500...but this is completely out of hand! I know it's a good size lot, but I don't see anything here that begins to justify this price...plus with shipping over $100, the total cost is over $1000!!?? Geesh.... 8O

I tried to do a quick calculation based on what I sell these items in my store.  Assuming there are no major problems and pretty much everything is in tip top shape I couldn't even get over $800.  Maybe there is something in there we don't know about like the miniatures.  If you look at the 1st photo you can just make out 3 boxes of miniatures and if I didn't know better the bottom 2 minis boxes are Heritage miniatures.  That could bump up the lot by some.  Still, as described and what the pictures show I would not bid even $300 for this lot for re-sell purposes.  Wow is right 8O

Only 3 bidders. I'm pretty sure who number 3 is. Number 1 and 2 have fairly low feedback, so maybe a newbie bidding war??

Aboput 100 items right?  That is a little high.  Then again I've seen collections like this go for more and more lately, people aren't bashful about spending $9-$10 an item where they used to stop at $5-$6 an item.

Technically this isn't an auction, but I'm just amazed that he's even offering this for sale at all

It must be seen to be believed.

Don't forget to insure it so it doesn't get damaged in shipping :)

I know this item commands a good price...often over $100, but to have 3 bidders over $200?? Yikes! And it looks fairly well used to boot!
