I think it went high but only by a sliver. Those early sheets with Wham cover, whichever logo, are getting extremely hard to find.

GenCon Autograph note: If you like defaced product (tho I know many of you emphatically do not), bring your copies of this & other Whammish items (like Guidon's Ironclad) for Tom to sign.

Heh... OK, then! I'll stick with my evaluation for now and look on bemusedly at the Acaeum listing (should that ever be updated) for an item that was not what either of the highest bidders thought it was! :)

(Sorry, I can't get the seller to send you that one over, Frank: from past experience he has a totally inflexible (personal) interpretation of eBay rules :?).

Hmm... did anyone post this link, did I click-through to it by accident, or have the phishers got new technology?

(All the seller needed was some paste-on woodgrain paper borders and they could've doubled that ask. Sheesh.... :?)





Gyax? Sounds like some kinda lone wolf author, that. :3

Seems like that seeler is just oozing with intelligence:

I also get the privelidge of paying $70.19 for 12 unlisted books.  :roll:



note: On the OCE booklets there is also a reserve to go along with that $500.00 starting bid as well. :roll:

Something tells me that I am not going to get a response. :P   You have really got to love though how matter of fact his response is, almost like he knows exactly what he is talking about. :lol:

Dude...the way things have been going he'll probably get his price!



My Question:



"Are these as nice as the photos?"



Let's see if I can get my question up there!

Update:

My question apparently did not make the listing, but his straight-faced response was:

"Yes, I keep them wrapped in plastic to protect them."

:D

Whatever is in the two box sets....17 books the seller never got back with me on.....better be valueable....




** expired eBay auction **




I assume they must be of some value since it was not all 0 FB bidders at the top. Highly possible this could have been a Recent Fun Find  :cry:

I'm sure all the junk in the Expert set boxes is just old crud from some two bit company like "We Worriers" and will get thrown out since the great TSR stuff is the important part.

(You gotta wonder...)

I have a feeling that this is probably due to a typo by the seller, but it still gave me a little chuckle:

I was wondering what you were talking about until I checked the shipping.
