Here is "doozy": 8O  :roll:  8O



http://cgi.ebay.com/Dungeons-Dragons-Mo ... 0081749377



Does it come gold-plated or maybe it will be hand delivered or signed by E. Gary Gygax himself.



BTW, doesn't his last name, Gygax, sound just like a D&D character name. Of course I like to use the name Ernest  :wink:  (That is his first name, right?)


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

You'd think you could at least get free shipping for that price :!:  :!:

At the very minimum, it should be Mint condition in original SW :!:  :!:  :!:

Wow. I have seen a few go for $110 or so, but never this high.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Plenty of underbidders there, too. :)



More has been asked, but those have tended to go to offers.

Yet, when you look up red_bus's ID through Ebay you can still see everything.   :?

Beats me, Mike... we seem to be the trial-zone for goodness knows how many half-assed ideas that eBay comes up with.

Presuming you can see the same "partially hidden" userID that I can, you've gotta admit that's in no way "anonymous", either. :D

Wow, that's new and strange (to me, at least). Is this a new variation on the "$200-and-over" rule, or did I miss a memo or something? :?

One thing I've never understood about eBay's whole strategy here ... why not just eliminate second-chance offers? Seriously, the site got along just fine without them for many years; it was only after eBay formally introduced the second-chance deal that the phishing scams went up by about 1,000%.

I have notice that the UK tends to trial all the lame ideas  :lol:

Although Aussie eBay took away the reserve feature for auctions.  They put it under the guise of stats show that starting low without a reserver will get better results.  I suspect the real reason was reserves reduce the number of successful auctions and we can't have that because eBay's profit would suffer.  :roll:

I don't know what the heck PGX is, but that booklet could be as new as the day as the day it was printed and it still isn't worth 1/5 of what they are asking for it. :roll:

I love the question... (Yeah, and the box fits in neatly behind... :o)

Has that slabbed copy not been up before?
Applying comic grades to RPG items strikes me as being a really bad idea.

ed.: Well, bad idea for comics, too, but that's just my personal opinion... ;)

PGX (Professional Grading Experts) is another one of the slew of "professional" grading services like CGC that have sprung up recently to take advantage of the comics buyer that wants a "guaranteed" graded comic. This foray into RPG items can only be seen as hilarious...It's very obvious by the description they don't know just what was graded.  However, I would be warned you'll probably see more of this type of thing in the future, I'm surprised Creep hasn't already decided it's the "future of RPG collecting" and gotten all his stuff graded....
