I just posted this under interesting items but thought it might justify its own posting....

This is not going to be pretty. :oops:

<edit>

I guess I picked a pretty good time to come back. :)

I understand that it is one of the few little TSR booklets that I am still missing.  I have boothill 1st and 2nd, Bio One 1st and 2nd, War of Wizards 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, 3 prints of Star Patrol, etc.

I know I still need a woodgrain Tractics and a wizard logo Tractics, 1st print Tricolor.  But the top of the list is definitely Warriors of Mars - after all it really is a book about my followers :)

Interesting that Grodog put in a bid - I thought he had one already.  He posted the product listing from it a while back.

Funny, I was thinking the same exact thing. :?

If I can manage to get one at a semi-reasonable price, it would be prime trade bait.  I don't think that's very likely, though....

Mars, I'm pretty sure I have a wizard logo Tractics I can trade/sell you, if you're interested?  (IIRC one of my copies is shrink, too).

Ha Ha - isn't this fun!  I feel all giddy inside.  I am going to guess that there will be a new high for what this one goes for.

Well considering that this is already almost beyond the last one that was up, I'd say that is probably a safe bet.

I thought Keepontheborderlands eventually sold his copy for over $300?

Yes, but that was not the last one.  Mike <mdr003> won one about 6-8 months ago for ~280.  The only reason the one the creepontheborderlands went as high as it did is because there was a interfering shill bid placed by someone here with the sole intention of not being able to be beaten and it was. :roll:

Wow, guys, does it come with a lump of gold, too?

I'm bookmarking this one — not to bid, but to watch the frenzy. Good entertainment, and cheaper than a movie ... :)

The one I snapped up 6 months ago was $275, but was a two book lot - I figure it worked out at about $240 or thereabouts for WoM. Probably high at the time, but prices just seem to keep going up with every new auction.

Regards

Mike

Hmmm, so I guess I've somehow missed copies in my usual searches, then, since I don't recall seeing any copies sell for less than $350 for awhile now.
