That final sale price was a steal... 8O

Not because of the games themselves, but because they are still in the shrink. You could resell just a few of them and make your money back.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I don't know if Conan, Gangbusters or the later edition Top Secret can safely go for more than $25. The rest I don't know about.. but it didn't seem like a free $50 laying on the sidewalk.

I have to take the blame for some of that :oops: I put up some pretty hefty bids on many of the items won by vincenzoldt.  I've been trying to acquire some items for my collection and placed some high, albeit within the realm of reason, bids.  As you can see someone was willing to go higher almost every time.

I saw that. I was going to bid on DA3 but I figured why bother.. you obviously want them a lot more than I do :)

Curiously X12 could have been had in shrink for $35 yesterday, yet went for $77.

Seller has some NPB negatives but the item might be worth it anyway, especially if you're in the Nebraska area so you can pick it up:



Dungeons and Dragons Pinball Machine



It includes the topper which can be hard to find.

I don't if these are in their original shrink or not. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably bid on a few.. but the seller told me that the mesh is not along the midback for at least some of them, but rather along the sides..

In addition, some of them look warped, as if from moisture or water damage. I know that some S/W items can be too tightly wrapped, which will cause this same appearance, but I asked the seller the question, so I will let you all know what the response is.

I recently received a S/W items that looked great, but when I opened them (such a rush opening 20+ year old S/W :lol:  :wink: ) they were stained on the inside and all of the staples were severely rusted. The seller later told me they were acquired from a storage sale :roll:


"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

Here is the answer from the seller of the aforementioned S/W items in the link above posted by KoP89:

Not sure how much HEAT damage you can get in CT, but does anyone have an idea if these would still be worth the gamble or not? :wink:

I bought a couple of old stock greyhawk modules still in shrink that were shaped like a "u" from the heat and that was back home in Thunder Bay, Ontario (north of Duluth).

Mars, did they ever flatten out or are they special edition U-shaped modules :lol:   Seriously, did the heat permanently affect their condition?

Thanks,
