$45????




I don't think thats that bad.  :)  On the other hand look at this one:




** expired/removed eBay auction **




Now the fact that its that high is bad enough, however the current high bidder is that POS seller Senorcoo.  :roll:   Yeah, I can see him being able to make money on that one.  I can see it now though $295 starting price and $300 BIN on Ebay as soon as he receives it. :roll:

Anyone else now doubt that he selling fakes of those too?  If he was the last seller on Ebay, I'd do without.




I believe that this particular seller is also the source for the counterfeit Compleat Tavern publications.

For that kind of shipping, he's sending the modules Fed-Ex overnight, right?

Over 30 bucks shipping for a game worth perhaps $15-20 at the most.



I have seen this same game go for less than $15 and that one had a better condition box.

Not seriously outrageous, but the "reserve not met" puts it over the top for me:



http://cgi.ebay.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Pl ... dZViewItem



A $14 minimum bid and a reserve price on a 6th- or 7th-print PHB with visible edge wear? It's currently the highest-priced 1E PHB in the regular (not store) ebay listings, so he must not have done any research before pricing it.

I don't know how silly the price is, but the item is very silly, and anyone caught using them at my table would be stripped, tarred, and peacock feathered... and then, roasted with some fava beans on the side.

You mean you wouldn't throw them into the pool of gold that's been talked about on another thread . . . of course, would that make that player's (now golden) character "fool's gold"?   :thumleft:  :thumbdown:

(OK, OK . . . it's 10:30 PM here and I'm half asleep; best I could do . . . !)
