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.

I e-mailed him about it as well. It's changed now.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

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:

King, I sold mine for $125.00 a couple of weeks ago ... and I have 4 SW Chainmail 8th prints up for $89.00 ... so you never know... someone out there will buy them eventually ... I mean look at the Dragon # 1 at $355.00 already and I have one in the store for $349.00 that 3 people with new accounts or less than 10 feedback want to buy (and I won't sell to them).... I have 3 more Dragon # 1s to put online this weekend... eventually someone will pay the price... :)

That's a bit unfair. I am a new user on eBay. Feedback is only a 2 right now, but I have not received 3 items so I haven't given feedback to those sellers (and hence, no reason for them to leave me any,) giving me, at most, a tentative 5 (awesome, huh! But, you started at zero, too.) This attitude would outright prevent me from making a purchase from you because I have only recently been able to get eBay and PayPal to be friends. I understand it, but a blanket policy just irks me.


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

Well I guess we know where this guy is getting his prices from then.  $125 for a TSR DGUTS is an abberation to say the least.  Shit, I know someone who paid less than that for a 1st print Guidon DGUTS this past week.  And anyone that pays $89 or more for an 8th print Chainmail is just plain too lazy to look elsewhere.  You are right though...eventually some dumbass will pay your price.  Regardless of if someone does or not...its still a silly damn price.  :?
