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

I guess southwicksw wanted a first print to go with the second print they bought a little while back:

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!

Condition?  The pic is blurry, so it's hard to tell but the corners look mighty sharp.  Maybe Gus had the inside track on some photos.

(Or maybe he was drinking with the guy that took the auction photo.)

First I am glad someone else other than me won that. I had meant to pull that snipe before I left for work. I was getting bidder remorse in advance. I find it harder and harder to bid on character sheets. The last set I bought I had a hard time paying what I did and it was half the snipe I had on these. Driving home I thought..."Crap! I never cancelled the snipe  :cry: ..it would be just my luck if I actually got a snipe to work for a change.



Ok that said it is probably just too early for me and lack of coffee but I am not getting what you are saying here. The price the last one went for was higher IIRC. Is it crazy because it is too low? I can't see anything out of line with the picture...or is it one from here or something like that? Again could be me or environmental factors affecting me but I am missing something....or perhaps I was not meant to see the whole picture  :lol:

Nah; last one was 1977 Lizard: this one is 1979 Wizard (still has 1977 copyright...).
"Value" probably around the $25-30 mark, tops, allowing for the faults.

I'd like to know what Frank's excuse was. ;)

Very nearly did: I only upped my snipe when I saw I'd won the other auctions and the price was moving ahead.
Paid too much attention to the text and the picture just didn't kick me hard enough...! :o
