I'm sure it's post-production re-shrinking by a third party. Being one of the hard cover books this is pretty obvious, but it is easy to be duped when older modules are re-shrinked.

Interesting too that it is pickup only - would hate to have to ship a package that big.

I live only a couple of hours away from this guy, but would be somewhat hesitant to go to his house with cash in hand, ready to pick up the goods, having noted that the last item he bought was a pistol grip stock!

And he sells used car parts.  He must own a junkyard nearby where he buries the bodies of eBayers who question his shrinkwrap.

So what's the red book with the dragon on in the Runequest box?

Well, I for one might be willing to bid as much as $2,060.04 . . .

but, $2,060.05 ?  That's just ridiculous!  :)

well and you didnt see this: "To Italy -- US $65.59"

in it you can find the price for the ticket of the plane (business class) and a night of staying in italy for the man in charge to deliver it in my hands... :D

That module weighs approximately 75 grams, so that's ridiculous.  

According to diabolical research, it displaces about 75 mL of water.  (I wasn't at sea level, and it was room temperature water, but my scale isn't that accurate, anyway.)  See here:

Does the guy have an RPG price that ISNT off the wall ludicrous? The reason I ask is that he averages about 3000 sales a month, but they all seem to be Magic cards.  I wonder if he actually ever sells any RPG items, since I dont feel like diggng through 3k of his sales a month to satisfy my curiousity, I have to believe he never sells anything RPG related...can anyone prove otherwise?
