Someone bought it though! Someone hit the $110 BIN and took it. I got a NM X10 with unpunched counters a couple of years ago for just $30.

Yeah, I hate that crazy stuff. I mean, I can't really get angry at the seller, since they're not really doing anything wrong. But man, that's pretty crazy :(

If I was going to pay that much I would at least get a set with the box and reference sheets to go with them.  Call me weird....I just really like boxes I guess.  :?

Hi Which edition do you sell here? Is it the 3.: Outside covers of all three booklets have a price ($3.50) Inside covers are white, and state 'Third Printing -- April 1975' Inside rear covers of all three booklets show a new printer imprint -- Heritage Models of Dallas, Texas' Or is it the third version 2: 'Outside covers of all three booklets have a price. Inside covers of all three booklets are white, and state 'Fourth Printing - Nov 1975' Or the 4.: 'Outside covers of all three booklets have a price. Inside covers of all three booklets are white, and state 'Fourth Printing - Nov 1975' Thr 5.: 'Outside covers have no price. Inside covers of all three booklets are white, but do not state any printing number (the booklets still have the 'copyright 1974' line, however).' The 6th: 'Inside covers of all three booklets are now the same color (parchment) as the exteriors, and do not state any printing number (though they still have the 'copyright 1974' line)' Let me know. Suruhl



...come on, man!!! arent you able to spot whether a price is printed or not on the cover?!?!  :?  :?  :?

Huh?!?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0053946208

$552, plus $100 shipping?  That lot is barely worth half that...

We'll never know who won though.  Why would a seller sell a lot like that privately?

So he could shill it, just like he did.

Oh BTW, we will find out who he sold it to soon enough. Even though it was listed as a private auction, his feedback will tell us right away assuming that either of the two parties leaves feedback for the other for this transaction.  It is/was his only auction in over 1 year and he has nothing at all going right now, so it will be the only transaction to show up.  :wink:

Actually their prices have come down a fair bit.  Now they are just in the Troll and Toad range.  Basic sets for $50 down from $2000.  Now there's a price cut!
