The guy with the OCE M&M is selling the other two books as well (M&T and U&W Adv)...but ALL separately... :roll:

Ridiculously high BIN on a 2nd Edition Gamma World with a thrashed box and it appears to be missing the rulebook!

It does, however, have a "triaangula die"...

Is Gator a member here? Wish I could sell for those prices.

Price are getting so ridiculous. I feel like giving up on Ebay this morning. Better returning to scrounging junk stores and second hand shops. It seems a lot of new people are getting in to the hobby that have money to burn!

many prices listed only what seller wants not what they get. have been listing usually real prices myself like mark bidding up mini greyhawk at http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0137918304 ;) ;)

how much would be crazy for that??

I am a bit surprised mini Greyhawk didn't go for more.  They rarely come up and are relatively collectible.  Although I do think they are hard to search for.

I've dealt with Gator and found him to be fine.  The prices on his BINs are generally too high but he often has other items up for auction without BINs and I got a few of those.

not a single good one in five years. any idea why second print is valued so high relative as many good copies of that??
I obtained a near mint copy of the Chainmail First Edition from an E-Bay listing (an Acaeum member) about 3 or 4 years ago. I still have the printout of the listing with final price shown (Somewhere). About 2 years later I traded it to another member here who recently sold or traded it to yet another member in a private deal, or I think so anyway.

I still have a Second Print that is NM at least as well. I got that one in a large lot of D&D items. And didnt pay much at all considering the size of the lot.

Wait until August/September after GenCon.  See if there is a drop in bidding prices after GenCon, like there was last year.

(altes Cover - NUR ca.200 Stück)!



Doesn't this mean that the seller is claiming there were only around 200 copies of the old cover printed?



Auf Messen teilweise mit 300 Euro und mehr gehandelt!



My German is rusty.  Isn't this a claim that B1 often sells for 300 Euros or more?



This guy is slimey...if I am translating correctly.  :pukel:

Hey, does this mean that my B1 with it's missing perforated map is worth more than 2cents?

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

$42 for a Rules Cyclopedia.  It appears to be in nice condition, but $42?

I've seen the RC go for much more, and in some stores I've looked at (physical ones, not online) it tends to go for about $60 (which is why I like to buy them online and then trade them in for store credit.) Price fluctuates a lot online... I wouldn't pay that much though.

Yeah, I list high grade Rules Cyclopedias for around $55-60 in my ebay store.  



They never last more than a month . . .
