Thanks, BC.

Actually, I'm glad the L3 will stay "within the family," so to speak. I just sold a bunch of Cosmic Encounter stuff, too, and most of it went to players I actually play against online. I feel like it's all going to be sent to good homes.

BTW, Itty, congrats and no worries about the payment. Take your time.

Temporary Insanity..... :lol:



Actually, I wanted just the module (I hate breaking up sets) and well...it would of been fine if THOSE TWO OTHER bidders had not gotten in my way.



Well, it is going to a good cause (as I try to rationalize the amount of money spent on it).



More madness to come later....

I now feel better.  One of my first buys when I started collecting was an L3 I payed $130 for it.  I was a newbie and I thought it was RARE.

it always amazes me how the L3's seem to sell for more than the shrinkwrapped box set.  do people not know where the L3's come from?

Sorry about another ebay question . . . if you all could look at pages 17 or 18 of this thread; there is a link to an auction for 109 or so modules (eventually went for over $1200.00 on a last-minute snipe against cougarrinard, for once!).  I noticed looking at the bid history that one of the bids was by a bidder who had "no longer a registered user" next to his/her name.  Unless this happened after the particular auction, I thought you couldn't bid unless you were a registered user . . . ??

This one?

Link



It seems that the account of the buyer is now valid again.

I think sometimes ebay freezes accounts(if that expression means st in your language) for some reasons when something gets wrong (complaint maybe), and the account is 'unregistered'.

After a view days, the account is registered again, if evertything goes right. And all the links are updated.

I have seen such situations.

SleepyCO,

I really hope that you didn't bookmark this auction for the picture of the buyer. Please, tell me that it is not the case...
Really!

You can't bid if you are not registered.  The bidder in question became unregistered after this auction was completed. Just because you become unregistered with Ebay, they don't erase everything that you have ever done.

Thanks, le Rahib and bclarkie - - - I should've thought of that first; I have a few of those designations on my feedback pages, and should've remembered that.

Le Rahib--"bookmark the auction for the picture of the buyer"?

No . . . I'm still waiting for another poster to put up her photo in a chainmail bikini and kneeboots!! :D  8O  :D  :!:  (Don't dump on me; she was the one who suggested it in another post! :D )

Heh, I think that you would have trouble GIVING those cards away to people, let alone trying to charge $300 & $1200 for them respectively. :roll:   Christ, what goes through peoples heads???

There's a "Submit Best Offer" button. Use it to ask the guy if he would take a buck for the lot.....

Ah, but the problem is when the bids get that high on an L3 it just encourages more people to break up their SA sets and sell the L3 individually.

*shrug*

By all acounts, it's a terrible module and not what Lakofka intended.

I actually considered offering him $.01, but since he does not have a shipping cost listed, I did want him to accept my offer and the try and charging some ridiculous price for shipping.  Hell, I was even afraid that shipping was going to end up being more that $10 as those cards aren't even worth that with the shipping cost alone. :roll:

Well, it seems they are coming out of the woodwork today, because of the $.20 listing day.  Check out this guy:



eBay listings



All common modules, all with $100 opening bids.  Oh and don't expect him to give you any kind of description or picture either, that was waaaayyyyy too much effort for this guy.  I think whitednd needs to come out of retirement just for this special occasion.
