No Paypal, No International shipping, No pictures.  A decent gamble for $5.00, though.




I'll start the bidding off . . .  :)

Gotta say, I love the guy's auction photos.  Some of them are really cool.

It is an indication of the perils of RPG collecting that an Acaeum member could refer to an auction starting at $1500...and including a huge percentage of all modules and first edition game books ever published...as "a decent start on a collection."   :lol:

I wonder if they have the equivalent of nicotine patches for RPG collecting?

Oh, wait!  They call them, "wives!"    :x

What strikes me as odd is the ending price on those items.  Don't get me wrong, I don't recall the last time I saw a copy of Fast Rules on Ebay so it is hard for me to speculate.  But Hardtack doesnt usually go for over $100 IIRC does it?  Or am I thinking of something else like Ironclad?  And there was a Guidon DGUTS up about a month ago that was in just as nice condition that went for only $50.  Even with the TSR version along with it that price seems quite high.

And this being the week before xmas I would think people would be spending their money elsewhere.  I guess I should say I was HOPING people would be spending their money elsewhere.  :wink:

It could be because the seller didn't bother to include the word "Ship" in his title.

Yeah, I've got "Don't give up the ship" set as one of my favorite searches, and ebay emails me evertime one of those damned "Commodore Perry" things comes up for auction... :lol:

:D   On a slightly more serious note, though . . . can't you set the search to:

Don't give up the ship -perry

the minus sign can be used unlimited times in regular ebay searching to block results with the keyword after the minus sign.  I assume the same would hold true with favorite searches?

Both those items sold for more than they usually do.... I have a copy of both that set me back maybe $20 or so each. I think Noble Knight had a few copies of Ironclad for sale at $18. These two are isolated cases of Fantasymuseum and Lofenloc going head to head.

What's really interesting is that after FM won the Fast Play rules for $167.50 at 19:00, he bid $164.99 seven minutes later on Hardtack, making sure Lofenloc paid the maximum. I guess he was pissed at being pushed that high on the first auction, and figured Lofenloc had the same high bid on the second. A little bitchy, but as my wife says, it takes balls.

Regards

Mike

Most likely due to snipes set days before the auction ended.

Actually it was not me who pushed him high in the first auction so I am not sure why he picked on me.

I was a little miffed. :x
