Silly auction price?  More like stupid 8O .  If these items can fetch over $100 at auction I should be able to make a couple of house payments in the next few weeks :wink:

Looks like a classic newbie bidding war. Their pride would be hurt if they lost. They must be doing it on this auction as well:



High priced auction from same Seller

No box and still over 3 days to go.  I was an Ebay/collecting noob at one point (some people might say I still am  :wink: ) but I dont recall ever doing anything like this.  Maybe I should push up the price a bit more to see just how high "damienmonger" will go.  Or would that be mean?  :)




Made an account just to point out that I feel like a tool.



lol, no harm though :]

Welcome DamienMonger!

Did you just happen by and then find your name mentioned?

Feeling like a tool is a part of RPG collecting.   :x

wowza!



On the surface bidders seem legit, though not much history. Both have recently bought an old dmg, but aren't bidding on/haven't won much else - just rings a bit odd. Though the way prices are at the moment I reckon you're golden on this auction!


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Degassy is nuts..I think he's gone up against some Acaeum members in auctions and far overpaid for items that aren't that hard to find.

It is bizarre isn't it? Every Sellers dream - a crazy newbie war over an item that is relatively common. Don't those bidders look around for similar items? They are now bidding six times what it is worth. Astonishing  8O

Mike,



I think that I should point out that Julia's is a much more collectable FIFTH print, while your copy is a measley SIXTH print. :P How can you really compare those? :roll:

Wanna hear something ironic. I picked up my copy of Swords and Spells, which is a near mint first printing to the best of my knowledge, for ... drum roll, please ... $1.50 in a used book store about four years ago. And you know what, I felt like I got ripped off because the actual gaming content of the supplement leaves much to be desired. The only reason I keep it around is for its historical value.

Well... looks like party time's over...dickhead ebayer "randols1" has just informed me he'd like to cancel his bids...bringing the current price down to a whopping $12.04.  :cry:  I half expected as much. Look's like a bargain now at that price!

In addition...if any resellers or otherwise would like to block this loser from their own auctions (as I now have of course), it would be much appreciated.  :wink:

While I don't wanna be mean, I do wanna say woohoo! Now I can bid on it. :)


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.
