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!

How about these Dragon mags in the teens that ended today for $100 each, not even in mint condition:


** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **





** expired eBay auction **




My only question is--why does issue #12 get no love?


** expired eBay auction **




Most of them are listed as VG condition as well...this is really silly.

That James_wildwest must be flush with cash. Looks like he put a giant bid on all the ones he wanted. Amazing prices.

Amazing is one way to put it.  I had another word in mind... =)

Seriously, i wouldn't pay more than $10 each for issues in the teens in this condition--maybe up to $20 each if they were perfect or closer to issue #10 than #20.  Paizo is currently out of stock, but they sell them for $15 each when in stock.

Uhm.  I don't think Paizo has ever or will ever has these issues in stock.  They also sell Dragon #1 for $15 "when in stock".  I think they just assigned some arbitrary values to these.  The stores like Noble Knight that have some of these in stock price them around $30 - $50 for issues in the teens.

i stand corrected Mars!  i was going by what i've been able to score off eBay of late...

In this auction, i won Dragon #8, 22, and 25, plus a MIB Kelek, three hardbacks, and some mono modules for just under $40.


** expired eBay auction **




i re-read my earlier post, sorry if it sounded combative, i wasn't disagreeing with you, the guy obviously needed certain issues and didn't mind haven't to pay for them...plus someone else had to value them nearly as high to push his bids all the way to $100, so you can't call him completely insane...or you'll have to call the other bidders insane as well.



humbly,

Hal

reply delayed with crash but the same as above

price means nothing if never in stock again. might as well say $0.99 each

http://paizo.com/store/magazines/dragon/issues/1980
http://paizo.com/store/magazines/dragon/issues/1981
43 is $43. 51 is $51. why? because of typo only not because rare.

13-21 23-29 more difficult than 7-12. low number does not mean more rare or more valuable even. common pitfall and same with jtas little wars others
however #12 for $15.50 was a good price for a fine copy

#7.

good pickup if you need most of that. :) shipping probably too much for many people just wanting one or two dragons

No worries Hal.  I was just pointing out that in a properly advertised auction, I think you would be hard pressed to get these issues for $10 especially if there is the possible of getting a run of them.   



I think you did well in your auction but the seller doesn't have very good feedback and the issue numbers of the Dragon's aren't listed in the auction so I don't think it was very well advertised.

Odd that I received a message that he is in the hospital... Maybe they have wi-fi there?

Agreed on both accounts Mars--still, $100 each is nuts!
