I've tooled on that seller for quite a while now. No matter how mean I am, his e-mails are always very happy and chipper. Frustrating.........

For that price, I would hope the guy is offering a free reach-around.


Let mirth prevail!

He insists it is rare, and worth a fortune. I tried to sell him one, but he's not interested, even at the discount price of $59.99!

The sad part is that the B1 might not even be his most ridiculously priced item:

A new eBay ID also located in Germany buys an ridiculously priced item. Shill.

Normally, I wouldn't post something sold by the Burntwire Brothers, but... WOW:




** expired/removed eBay auction **




$43.66 for one pin?  I have 7 of those things (in 5 different colors, still in the packages), and I don't think I paid that much for the whole bunch.  Am I undervaluing them, or did the last two bidders go crazy?



Found some invoices. My buying history on the square RPGA pins:



April 2007: GBP 9.16 for a set of 4 (green, purple, red, yellow-orange)

September 2007: USD 10.50 for 3 (blue, purple, yellow-orange)



I've been trying to get two sets (one for my collection, one to wear), but if the blue one is going to start selling for $40 a pop, I may have to put that plan on the back burner. (I didn't even bother bidding on this one because the early bidding looked high to me.)



Congrats to the Burntwire Brothers on the sale! I guessing/hoping that the final bid on this item is, in part, a testament to your reputation as top-notch dealers.

They actually do have some worth, however. The 1st and 2nd edition chase card sets you listed are so cheap because, honestly, the chase from those sets suck. I've seen the good rares go for near $100. Each. Really, just depends on what you have.

When Spellfire came out at Gencon, many (and I mean MANY) people were really looking forward to checking it out. We wanted an alternative to MtG - and how could you miss with the entire D&D universe at your finger tips. But they did.
The system is bland. Sure it can be fun, but it is also lame. The artwork did me in. I was totally pissed that they just rehashed old artwork.
So there you are playing a just OK game with recycled artwork. All the air in the room quickly vanished. I am still amazed that people will actually pay for these cards.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

In the last month, I have listed 3 X1s in shrink, none of which of which went for more than the opening bid of $4 and one of the times I listed one it went unsold for $4.  :?

There are at least 3 SW X1's in ebay stores that could have been had for a fraction of the bid amount.  Makes no sense.

Yes. Allow me to add a series of bulging eyeballs as well. That must be some sort of record for X1  8O  PDT_Armataz_01_23  :cyclops:

Hey Brian, if you've got one of those left in shrink, I'll even give you FIVE bucks for it. I don't have that one in new condition.

Check out the rest of montymc1's wins from whitetower67's auctions:

Shrinkwrap seems to make some people go a bit crazy for some reason.  But there is nothing that I can think of that makes sense for someone to pay $43 for War Rafts of Kron and $62 for The Savage Coast that are not in shrink.  Baffles the mind.  :?

While I do find it fascinating that you can just pull up a buyer and check out everything they are bidding on,  I also find it just a little bit disturbing.



Sure you can go through someone's feedback and check out their history...and that is ok. But I have never been a fan of this feature. It just seems a little intrusive.



Those price are just plain silly, though.



Speaking of high. I usually don't like to point out my own auctions, but man...

You have to be logged in, but: go to advanced search, choose find items by bidder.  Enter the user id, and there you go.



Or use this link: eBay listings ;)
