eBay listings



This guy has some semi-rare non-TSR stuff, and the G1/2/3 in the 13 book lot are almost definitely Aussies, judging by the price. The D series might be as well.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Thanks BC,

If that is the case, why is the aforementioned MM in the UK, which appears to a 2nd print, setting such a high reserve price? Just because it is a softcover :roll:

You can't really determine the printing of a UK MM by a cover scan; they all appear identical.  The starting price in that auction seems unreasonable.  However, 1st/2nd UK printings are much less common than 3rds.  I'd argue they're slightly less common than their US counterparts, as well.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Well no, but the fact that the counters are punched makes up for the box being tortured.  



What, doesn't everybody count punched counters as an added bonus to the condition? Just think, if you could get some black and red marker writing all over it, it would be Mint. :roll:

You know what they say about sarcasm Brian?

Mind you - uncut counters make them much easier to photocopy (nod toward the kitty :twisted: )

Apparently so.  I mean, they over price everything to ridiculous heights, so I mean substantially overgrading stuff shouldn't be too far behind.  Its the same business model that Titan uses.

perhaps they use their own versions of commomly used (and accepted?) abbreviations.

for example

NM - Nasty & Mashed
VGC -  Vaguely Goat Chewed
Mint - Its got a hole in it, just like a  friggin polo!

Did I read somewhere that Coug has actually said in the past that 'VGC' in his auctions can mean 'very gaming condition' - Or I might be dreaming that (sounds like the kind of disjointed pseudo-English gobbledegook he might use though!)

Heads-up---wasn't there a problem with Bidpay (closing, not accepted by eBay, etc.) talked about on another thread--and here's what seems to be a new auction with it!! :idea:  :?:

You can pay with your CC through BidPay, but BidPay will regect any chargeback from your CC company, and you have no reight to your money back. People use BidPay only 'cos they know once they have your money there's FA you can do if you don't receive your goods.

Your CC company will tell you that the service you paid for was supplied by BidPay in line with the terms and conditions you agreed to at the point of sale. I know 'cos it happened to me with Morgan Stanley. BidPay  will not be liable for non-receipt of goods and offers no buyer protection.

If you're not in the US, don't even think about using BidPay to buy from a US seller. BidPay won't even extend you the basic rights they have to extend to Americans. If you're not an American, you have no rights at all.

Yes, after reading what the fine folks here have said about bidpay, I think I will remove it as an option next auction.  It just doesn't seem to have anything going for it, just adds to the general confusion.
