It had to have gone to plan. You wanted to win it, and you did. It may not have gone for the amount you hoped, but you did get it...

I stopped looking at $55.

well i was gonna bid to about what the other guys did in the 60's...i didnt think it was even worth that, but there was the pre-pub only a 100 thing, which would have been nice, but in the end, its what a pre-pub of a 5th print....

glad i didnt get it in the end...

if mars has any sense he will already have offered the 2nd bidder by now :D

Quite a jump though, eh, between 2nd and 3rd bidders.

Reading that pre-pub Tegel Manor's description of the seller's grading - the poorest condition was defined as....
Poor: Badly rogered. Play copy.

I love it! That's brutal honesty in action on eBay. Very, very cool.

Its the heralded "Acaeum Effect".  The item being discussed here has caused a rise in prices and interest on Ebay.  

Speaking of which, wow, those DCC 51.5 modules look like GREAT modules, right????  You better check out Ebay now before they all disappear..... :D

I know it must have been done but has anyone ever posted an invisible stalker?

I would if it hasnt provided we were able to get it changed as a NPB and have the charges removed. LOL

I would hate to get nailed with a selling fee for like 9k or something.

Ahh no never mind I cant do that my luck they would invoice me the day it sold and I would be killed by my wife when they wiped out the savings. LOL or maxed my cards to cover the fees.

Still it would be funny.

This con-man posts the same auction from time to time, fishing for Newbies.



The ad claims that only around 200 copies of the first print were ever made.



It also claims that most of the time this item goes for 300 Euros or more....which would beg the question why they are selling it for so much less.

I am glad that somebody finally bought this item since it is on my JG Valuation watch list.



It has been listed at least three times, but it is not worth the $1.00 that the bidder won it for.




** expired/removed eBay auction **




I would say that the item looks like it has been dog rogered, but that would be an overly kind description... perhaps an entire dog pack?  :twisted:
