Which probably means that I've just lost a sale! :cry:

And as for the other stuff, I hope that I can persuade him that shipping to the UK doesn't require too much additional effort.

If any international bidders want to bid on these, if the seller agrees you can have the items shipped to me, I'll pass it along, it's no problem.  So many sellers cut their own throats by not selling internationally, they are some of my best customers! As long as I'm paid shipping costs I don't mind.

I didn't see this one mentioned, so if it was already, please forgive me.  :)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0053946208



Anyone have any estimates on a value for that lot?  Looks like most of the super mods are in it.  I don't see any 'big ticket' items hidden in there, but plenty of solid basics.



What is it worth as a lot?  What could a knowledgable seller get for all of it by breaking it up into individual lots?

As a lot, I would say it is worth its current bid of $255...but keep the $100 shipping price in mind.

Adding up the things in the lot, and figuring in the shipping costs you'd likely pay if you bought them, say, in sets of three.......

Yes, it is worth the current bit/shipping price.

The seller gushing about how many hits and watchers the set has bugs me.   :?

They pimped it here in the classifeds.  I absolutely love when we get users out of nowhere join, make one post in the classifieds section and the never see or hear form them again. :roll:   Anyway as Mark points out S&H is $100, which is absolutely ridiculous even for a lot of that size.  I am betting actual shipping is probably half of that by media mail.  Secondly, the fact that its a private auction means that I and a lot of other people) wouldn't bid on it regardless of what is in it.  All said though, I would say maybe $300 to $400 total.

Shrink wrapped AD&D Dungeon Invaders set.



It is selling with a reserve.



I don't like the way this is offered for sale either; "Bid on it before I change my mind." Seems like something is not quite right . . .


Why do we always have to attack uphill?

That's about the price I thought, but I don't know a lot about the 2nd ed stuff.
I asked the seller about picking up the stuff instead of having it shipped, and he said he would still need to charge a $19.95 'pick-up fee'.  :(

That's pretty dumb.

If you think the shipping is bad for the US, he's asking over $200 to ship to Canada, heheh. My snipe was in at $380 (170), and that's about where I'd draw the line as a reseller. If someoen in the US could get it for $250 or so, it'd be an ok buy.

Still, the guy's attitude has me leery.

Interestingly, he uses the the same grading criteria that BTB uses, word-for-word

I am surprised that BTB didn't mention that himself.  Perhaps he didn't even notice.

I noticed . . . but I see it on ebay from time to time.  Likely, they took it word for word from the Acaeum and not my descriptions (I wrote them up for myself and the Acaeum and Scott asked if it was okay to use them).

Granted, I don't give credit to the Acaeum in my descriptions as I wrote them . . . but for everyone else a simple "Thanks to the Acaeum" would be the very least they could do.   :roll:   I used to email people sometimes, but I don't bother anymore.  At least they are trying to use grading standards.

To anybody knowledgeable in this area:
Can you change your ebay id and still retain your feedback rating?

If you change your username you have to keep the same feedback rating and comments.  

If you start a new ID, you have to start at Zero.
