I must admit I would have felt a bit guilty if my offer was accepted.

From a purely technical p.o.v., might've been better to have offered $200-250 then paid another $600-800 to sooth your conscience if they'd gone for that and you'd wished to do so.


I was considering that.  Fortunately I was saved from having to wrestle with  such a tricky moral issue.

Sure looks that way, doesn't it?

But then you only have three-quarters of the information on-hand (personally), no?


You are pretty sure this is a first huh?  Looking at the texture of the covers if I am guessing correctly. :wink:

Nah, I'm only 99% sure (like last time).

Well, some time soon someone else will tell me that they know what they're bidding on!

I'll stop bidding at that point, OK? ;)


Once it went over $300-400 there was no harm in waiting for the seller to reply... ^^

I wonder what the seller is thinking right now?  Was he really in the dark, is this a joke, is he thinking somebody is f**cking with him, or is he really flabergasted and planning a trip to a marathon is the desert :lol:

Considering what the other items she's sold recently have gone for, she's going to be in for one heck of a shock when she logs in next.

Yes we need one of these to get exited about every so often.  Now we just need a MINT Pharoh or Rahasha as well!

Anybody know if those dice are part of the original set?  They seem of the correct vintage...

51 posts on the DF thread.


(Although that's possibly heading more into a firefight over copyright issues... :?).

yeah i think shock at having something thats worth that much and not really knowing - unless they did a little research, which i doubt considering the listing.

with davids bid, that will almost pay my first instalment :)

I happen to know that a friend of mine who doesn't visit the any of forums, sent an email to them with a link to the acaeum page that has the woodgrain info on it. I think he might have submitted BIN offers, but I don't know for sure. I rather doubt that they do anything now but provide info and ride the bidding out.

Well I would only have spotted it about now - after about 50 people would have bid and won it already.  8O

Seller said that the set was picked up from a yard sale yesterday 8O

And she was offered $75 by another eBayer.  Nice try!

You know the seller is from Pennsylvania.  If they end up being from anywhere around here, I think that I am going to be sick........
