Last year I thought the demand for these had faded away and I remember the price falling quite low. Of course demand seems to flip/flop for some items every six months or so on ebay.

It's a title that is commonly known to be collectible. Someone new to RPG collecting might go for it first, without knowing it can be had for cheaper.

I'm guilty of that. Paid an arm and part of a leg for a set, then got a second one for $25

silly prices for UK HB 1st ed (this time 9th print!) DMG continues, especially after using:



"rare"



then "very rare",  "1st edition" and refering to the 36GBP from a week or so ago.



Unfortunately, his MM was only 4th edition  :roll:  otherwise he might have made more than 17GBP!    :P

Whoa whoa whoa.  That's no measly 4th -- it's the ultra-rare 6th!  It says "fourth edition", but that's why it's so valuable -- it's a misprint.  

It's not quite as valuable as the 5th, which contains the misprint but also omits credit to Dave Arneson!
 
No, don't quote me on that. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

I never have understood the hyper-inflated price that these sometimes go for.



D&DG is one of my favorite 1st edition hardcovers and I have several, including 1st and 2nd printings.  I have never paid higher than $10 for any of them, and they range in condition from Fine to Good.  I just picked up another 2nd printing for $9.  The things just aren't that rare, despite the excitement over the 2 extra mythoi.



It's no wonder I avoid e-bay like the plague.  Hunting around and keeping your eyes open sure pays off.

For those who missed out on the one I posted first here is one for slightly less.

About $68 less.

(No bids started at $9.99)

Well. they want you to pay shipping too...

So, another $12.60.

So its actually only $56.39 cheaper.....

These have been going for about $30 up until a month or two ago when I stopped tracking them. Pretty much without regard to the edition.

I have to imagine more will come.

Could a little plastic pernicon from LJN unseat the first print woody as the most valuable D&D item of all time? :clown:

No, definitely a wind-up, says so on the box.

That's a standard shipping service being used isn't it? $90? Why?

8O    WOWSERS............    8O

I would not want to pay just the shipping alone, much less the BIN of $10,000.
As an aside; I would think that a normal person would feel he should ship for free if the BIN was used..... :roll:

The rest of this morons auctions are similarly rediculous.

The seller has just listed ANOTHER of these "One of a kind" products. $10K again, well it's a unique item after all!

Maybe it will be hand carried by a courier on a budget air flight!  :)

pernicious = wicked

con = swindle
