Subtle wording earned me a public response. *yay*
(Worth another sad shake of the head, I think).

Do let us know what response you get, Brian. ;)




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

A newbie muppet.  But the response was a giggle, I can just picture him nodding knowingly and typing that answer in straightfaced thinking he's sitting on a gold mine...!

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

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 asked him a question about the Eldritch & directed him to the site. Hmm it could be worth $10

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.

You must have just missed it.  The original BIN was $799.  The seller has since corrected it.

I e-mailed the $799 seller and jokingly asked if they were offering an ounce of gold along with it. She wrote back and thanked me.

LOL! I contacted the same seller, telling them their price was way out of reach. Had a few friendly emails back and forth. Pretty funny that other folks noticed the same thing, although not surprising in retrospect.

Will the stupidity ever end?  Not only does the seller have only 1 feedback but the shipping is $10 and the book isnt even in perfect condition.  Not to even mention the ludicrous BIN and starting price.

That's a fairly normal price (starting bid) for these in good condition.  This is one of the most consistently overpriced items.

Is there an idiotic seller thread then?  Wasnt so much just the price that I was gawking at but the whole picture: price + newb + shipping + retarded BIN.  :?

If anyone picks it up for that BIN I will shit a canoe...with the paddles.

Huh.  We have a "shady dealer" thread, but no "idiotic seller" thread.  Go figure.  Feel free to make one, I'm sure I can add a few posts.  :lol:

Please don't.   :?

We are already a sarcastic and critical enough bunch.  Far better to help new sellers learn the ropes than to ridicule them.   :)

Pretty sure that's just good ol' fashioned "newbie fishing".   :)

Intelligator has an account on here, I think.  Maybe he'll comment.
