Maybe for first printings, but there's no indication they're firsts, is there?

The DMG is a first and the PHB is a 2nd.  Regardless, they are both, ummm....well...silly.  :?

I had (low) bids in on a lot of the items that that seller had listed, and a fair number of them went for far more than I expected.

Either that, or I got very lucky when I picked up my campaign setting box for around $30 instead of $50. :roll:

O.K. I don't get it.  I need some education.  Why do so many Planescape books/materials go for so high?  What combination of quality and quantity or whatever make these go higher than similar-sized AD&D materials?  Or am I just imagining that these go for more? :?:   I realize I am asking for opinions, and those are welcome.

Great lot of 16 Forgotten Realms products at a TRUE auction price of $0.99, but it might be cheaper to buy a plane ticket PDT_Armataz_01_23 with Jet Blue  PDT_Armataz_01_06 than to get these shipped:

That's like saying $20 for shipping plus a $100 handling fee. :roll:

Someone probably gave eBay a nudge and mentioned that they were missing on out final value fees because of that. :lol:

The listing is still working fine for me, although the link quoted in napoleonsdad's message is not correct.



Here's the listing:

I reported him again for "circumventing fees" with excessive shipping.

Well, OK....he lopped almost $99 off of his shipping price..

Now he has it down to $27.11!

Now it is down to 21.08
Pictures would be nice, but that is probably asking too much!

Maybe it would have been wiser for the seller to take the listing down and then start over?  Many potential buyers probably dismissed his auction after see the ridicously shipping charge.  Live and learn hopefully :wink:
