I noticed this in the auction description:

I don't expect this item to sell at this price unless someone really wants this item.
I am placing this item in my store to "draw attention" (ie: advertise)




In my opinion this is one of those "business tactics" that has the possibility to backfire on Doug.  There have been several sellers over the years that have had some great items in their stores but their prices were much higher than the normal range that one might expect.  Needless to say, this could lead the potential buyer to bypass the seller altogether because of an assumption that the majority of the items in the seller's store are similarly high priced even if they aren't.



One of the very reasons that creep1962 was so maligned on this forum (that AND also because he was a complete asshole) and one of the reasons that I will never buy anything from Troll and Toad.

I have noticed that Troll and Toad also sells under a different name.  I have bought a cheap item from them.  Perhaps a deliberate splitting of their brand name?

eBay listings



The name is magicprincess, also known as [email protected]



My purchase was back in March.



She is definitely associated with Troll and Toad in some way....I think as a different business name on Ebay.



You could see it on the item listing (which I can't call up anymore) and you can see it if you read down on the above link.

Yeah, I remember that association as well.

Axel, I'm glad you chimed in here.  Reading the item description, I began to wonder if that was your PoVQ!   :D

well, this leads me to assume that the way wee warriors used to prepare PoVQ folders was a little bit crappy...

-Anyone desperate for a PoVQ? ($1200)

-  
** expired eBay auction **
[/quote]

The cover grade is Very Good.

It's not as black as the scan shows, a bit lighter.

It has a bent/creased upper left corner.

It has about a 1" split at both the top and bottom of the "spine".

:lol: desperate = photo cropping. very good with that damage and no photo?

thought $961  
** expired eBay auction **
already high but four bidders over $700

$1400 for nearmint copy some months ago now seems good!! :D :D

even if only for advertising shop would still expect best offer option if someone still willing to give profit?? $9.00 shipping scares you, don't bid = lulz :lol: good luck!

That is a terrible scan...the cover folder, I thought, actually looks quite nice. I think I would have rated it Excellent, by my methods, but DR is just being conservative I imagine.  I don't even recall any of the damage he mentions.

I don't think DR really wants to sell the item (my opinion only, read his auction blurb though)  But then again, I've seen some absolutely stupid selling prices for stuff lately.  I've honestly about given up trying to intelligently price certain items, just stick something outlandish on it and wait for the inevitable desperate buyer....

Well, I am trying to use the Acaeum grading guidelines and thus how I come up with the grade. I know the item is old and certain aging is expected and thus it'll never look like new... but a bent/creased corner is just that... I mean I know to "semi-restore" some paper type items and get rid of creases and bends (depending on how bad they are)... but I'd rather not mess with it.

Mikey had the "deer in the headlights" stare and wasn't seeing much in his daze, so it was looking "excellent" to him :)

I find photos suck and scans suck... if I take a picture, I have to do it at an angle so as not to "bleach" out the item with a direct flash.. then it scews the item since it's at an angle.

If I scan the item, it looks so much better... heck you never see any of the flaws and it looks darker etc... I even tried to scan the pages with creases and light stains and they wouldn't show up on the scan...
