LOL, I was just about to put that one up here wondering whether something odd was going on.

No way. That belongs here as the price is silly!

There are a number on Ebay with BINs for far less than that. I saw a good one go recently for about $15. Troll and Toad has an average one with a $10 BIN

There are several copies for less....I've got one in my store right now.  Seeing as the buyer has 1 feedback, and it's two guys bidding against each other with basically one bidder driving up the price...I'm thinking "shilltastic!"

What am I missing about this, and the sellers other auctions (DMG at £36 - legends and lore at £16)?


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

Yes they are - if my earlier foray into the loft is anything to go by, it would seem I have them all! (Do AD&D hard backs breed? I'm sure I never brought all them!!)

Not too bad Pre-used condition, initials inside front cover. A little damage to the cover.



What does he mean by "Pre-used?"  



If this is "Pre-used" what does "Used" mean?  



Used for toilet paper?



Used to blow a bloody nose?



Used?

I think he used the word pre-used because ebay don't like you using the word 'fucked'. (If he had been reading these forums for a while he may have used the word 'rogered'!)

I didn't think ebay/paypal allowed you to limit the type of paypal payment that could be made. So what is he asking in greenbacks> $2500? Good thing it is used, no one could possible afford it if it were shrinkwrapped.

Well, I read that as possibly one page shy and written on but, despite the friendliness of the seller, never managed to get a /direct/ answer on either of those questions.

Some auctions ya certainly don't mind losing! :)

The sheer ridiculousness of that final price just blows me away.  And I am not surprised at all that TFM was the second highest bidder yet still managed to outbid the third highest bidder by about $1500.  :roll:  I've always enjoyed poking fun at some of the crazy ass bids he throws at stuff but that is just beyond retarded.  :?



I am sure the seller is elated though.

Yeh, kudos to the seller!  Funny thing is the seller probably is very happy, and thinking "Man, the other stuff must be worth a bunch also!" without knowing they won't have another auction in the same galaxy of this one unless they have a ST1 stashed away....!

And I'm still in shock TFM somehow lost one!!! 8O
