Has anyone posted this guy yet?



eBay listings



Check out his TSR prices, particularly his boxed sets...over $100 on Ruins of UM, Ruins of UM II, Spellbound, and Greyhawk Wars....

Love the BIN on this one:




** expired eBay auction **




:roll:



Then again, I could have just as well put this in the "Laugable Item Descriptions" thread with this quote:



This is only
the second copy of this book I have seen in the past 6 YEARS!!!!




Apparently he hasn't been looking to hard. :P   Then again since he has only been on Ebay for just over 4 years maybe that explains it.  :roll:

Yeah, even if he consistently misspelled it as "Dieties", there are still generally 2-3 copies on Ebay at any time with that spelling.

What's strange is that the prices on some of his items isn't too over the top.  Which means he must at least check prices online, but for some reason all the TSR stuff is way overvalued....unless Karameikos box sets are selling for $95 somewhere and I am missing it....

This Seller had listed this before at the same price. I posted here somewhere enquiring as to the details of the item. Apparently this soft cover book is relatively rare and usually fetches a pretty high price.

The typically fetch between $30 and $40.  That price, especially the BIN price is pretty bad.

Whatever.  :roll:




Seems this guy is trying again.



 
** expired eBay auction **




Different selling strategy this time. :roll:  Halve the opening bid(even though its still too high), still keep the reserve price on there and keep the ridiculous BIN on there as well.  Hmm, I wonder if this is going to end up with the same result as last time....

"Only one printing"!   8O



Wow...apparently, their in-depth research has failed to locate an extremely common Judges Guild product...available in two colors, by the way, from different printings.



Even a moderate Google search should have hit copies of this item.



Mine are both available (white and yellow) for $275.  A steal!

Sigh...You still get those people who think non standard is automatically valuable, plus you add 25+ years old, plus they remember that JG stuff was hard to find back in the day....
  He probably checked on ebay, didn't see any others for sale right now, immediately got dollar signs in his eyes thinking it was very rare....
