Its a distinct possibilty that Foul has not updated those links in a long time.  For instance, on that same page he has listed The Dreamers Den as a recomended reseller and the link goes here:

http://www.dreamersden.com/

Last time I checked we were not in the business of booking trips to India here.

If you know anything about the game, you'd know why those cards are so expensive. When the game first came out, the cards were so powerful that it boiled down to whoever went first won. First-turn victories, without the opponent even getting a chance to play, were possible. So they command a huge price now. Not to mention they are as rare as tits on Kate Moss.


Which reminds me I have to get rid on my collection one day.. I statred at revised (42 duel land from memory) oh well one day..

eBay listings



Looks like one of the most clueless sellers ever decided to give it up...I know, hard tomake a living when you have made three sales since July.  In a way, it's too bad, it's really easier to sell that $50 item when Valhalla had it listed for $500 or more, makes the buyer look like they are getting a bargain!

Actually that price isnt that far off of the average going price for an OCE in that condition.  I have seen several of them in much worse condition go for more.

I don't know that seems to be above the trend where OCEs have been lately.  I just sold one a few weeks ago in comparable conditon that only went for $80.

It is definitely on the high end but the same OCE went unsold a couple of weeks ago due to the seller having a reserve price that was $80 if I am not mistaken.

'Tis the season . . .

These days, the season starts even earlier.  I know that I am going to try to get at least 75% of the presents I purchase from online sources.  Order early, get everything out of the way and even if ship times take 3 weeks, I still have a month to spare.

I don't know what that is — and I have a hard time caring — but ... surely, she missed a decimal, right? Is it supposed to be $19.90?

I would think $1.99 would be even more appropriate than $19.90.

Those were freebies given to game stores when 3Eech came out. Pretty common.
