Hi All:
 I still need to rewrite this.  I know we got some pictures that are manufacturer stock pictures, mixed in with pictures we took ourselves.  Anyone got ideas on how we might rewrite that legal statement?
thx, Jon

I would just write something about the pictures belonging to their respective owners and may not be used without their permission and then add your own copyright warning for your photos.  On the expensive auctions it might be worth watermarking to prevent abuse if you have the time and energy.

There is a program called Picture Shark that can be downloaded for free and work really nice. I am fairly sure that if you use it in a business capacity there is a charge as we purchased a copy for where I work. Pretty easy to use application though.

I don't like the one bidder though.  Looks pretty suspicious on the surface.

Compares somewhat interestingly with the seller's VF(?) 2nd GH; just finished at $53...

I'm not sure why the Acaeum groups the 2nd printing GK logo in with the rest of the prints. I think in general if it has the GK logo it sells so much better than the lizard or wizard logo.  At least this is what I seem to remember when I bought my 2nd print Greyhawk but have also noticed it with Star Patrol and try finding a GK Tricolor.  If anyone has one they want to sell, let me know!
