Just added him, with a link back to page 4 of this thread.

I'm done with this now ... congratulations on digging that massive hole, though, Kev-baby!

The guy obviously need some releaf, and it's better that he keeps his standards realistic.

Sounds not unreasonable for a full refund, given that most sellers will allow 10-14 days for payment in the first place - and that's simply a matter of pressing a button, rather than waiting for the USPS to do their business then trying to determine whether the item actually arrived or not.

Yeah - I guess it is 16 days I actually waited for the item. Guess not everyone sees it your way Frank.

Not sure how you manage to read my observation "your way" either...

Anyhow, according to your own post you actually "waited" 6 days, then spent 10 days badgering for a refund.

Sorry High Lord, my money's on the Dead Lord.

Hey Ass-vain,

Take a look at the text under "The Acaeum" at the top of this page:  
"Dungeons & Dragons Collecting Forums".

I find it more than a little bizarre that a seller would intrude on a group of collectors who lay out (conservatively) $100 grand a year on games -- and proceed to piss 'em off.

::shrug:: I guess I just don't get it.

Enjoy your argument, Mr. K; it's probably cost you several thousand dollars (IF you ever have anything to sell Really).

And, wow, Frank, this will be slightly off-topic, but you are having a field day with a couple of your latest offerings. Do you lace them with gold or something?

Kidding! It actually goes to prove that a reputable seller who has (obviously) contributed to the collecting community and who is not out for a quick rip-off can make a few extra dollars here and there. More power to you.

You know what? That was more on-topic than I originally thought ... :)

I didn't really expect much out of them. It seemed pointless to keep them, I've never even read them!
I'll throw the rest up sometime this week, if time permits. I'm going to put up a REAL good one soon. REEEEEEEEEEALLY good.

It's official: we have two well-known Franks here. :)

I was referencing ExTSR's $51 blue book, among others. Not that it matters much; I was just observing that good things can happen to folks who aren't rip-off artists.

I think I'm going back to using "DL39," though ... multiple Franks taxes my tiny brain. :wink:

Like how soon?  There is no internet connection in the tent, and I'm heading back out tomorrow.

By the way, snow in the forecast tomorrow.  Hope you guys are enjoying your summer down there!

Hovering around 50 degrees, so no danger of snow. Just getting light again outside (2am), tho'.

Are you actually missing TD #3, Stephen, or was that an upgrade? Missed by cents, I noticed... :?

Not sure what to make of that F116-R given the recent purchase prices and BTB's near-complete set, which also went for barely half that current price; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8819155554 . Nicely placed reserve, phps?



OTOH Frank M.'s rather decent SW'd Rahasia took the wind out of the final bidding-spree on the other copy that finished later. Although if you'd asked me a year or two ago I'd probably have said $175-200 tops, albeit on a worse exchange rate.

(Was kinda hoping there might've been another interesting auction or two to follow that; but if not, no complaints... :))

#'s 1 & 2 were upgrades from my Richard Snider copies; I don't have #3  :cry: .

You dog... wups, you pussycat... I do have a limited amount of stuff, y'know. I'm digging, I'm digging...

On that D&D F-, few sellers point out the history (and hobbits); praps my ramblings also have something to do with the attraction. (I don't expect it to go much higher, tho...)

But we may see if there's any interest in a prepub of IM1 Immortal Storm.

(Sorry, now back to our scheduled topic)

Actually bclarkie, you are only half right.

I'm not the medussa_thorne Seller. I've actually not sold anything in the RPG section of eBay for about a year.

So don't blacklist that guy/girl - as far as I can see, they've done fairly well on eBay w/ 450 Feedback.

Easy enough to get the contact info. Which I am sure he will do. Brian is great at sniffing out morons. I just get lucky once in a while like, well, with you.
So when exactly were you going to stop posting?
