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




** expired eBay auction **




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 . . . !)

Mmm, God condition. Must be excellent.

What the hell?  :?

It is also kind of interesting to note this statement in the description:



will not sell to anyone whom has not given me feedback from a prior purchase, no matter how long ago, or whom has a history of late payments.




I guess he holds a bit of a grudge.

Heh.  I somehow have difficulty resolving this comment from his disclaimer:
This means there may be some wear, or smudges, but nothing extreme.


with this part of the auction description:
the first volume fell apart, but all the pages (loose) are in the box


Having the item "fall apart" so it's essentially just a collection of looseleaf isn't "extreme"? :scratch:

OK now...this is very wrong. Don't these people ever do a search for another set? I just don't get it.

But on a side note...congrats to napoleonsdad on a nice sale!

Anybody else notice this bit of wackiness?




** expired eBay auction **




Either the seller really loves the mini-game Saga, or he simply has way too much time on his hands with nothing better to do.  Either way someone should be thrown in a padded room if they were to pay $400 for it.  PDT_Armataz_01_11

I certainly don't understand it but I won't complain either.  It helps to offset some underperforming auctions.

Uhhh...WOW



It is probably the coolest of the minigames (next to Vampyre).  And it would have made a great full sized game.



You know, if I had money to just throw away, I'd probably buy it, because it's unique.  I bet the guy had to pay a ton to get it made, so he just had them make a couple thinking he could sell one to offset the cost. And from reading the description, it's apparent he just LOVES the Saga mini game.....!
