Glad to help.
But See if any of it arrives first.
If so, buy me a cold beer next time we see each other.

Maybe not the lowest price ever, but they come out at $90 a book, which I don't figure is too horrible... original price asked was $1500, so I like to think I did OK.

Thta is a hell of an investment for $900. All 1st prints with some real rares there.

No reply yet.
Perhaps he will send the maps with the correct books after all.

UPDATE AGAIN:
Seller removed the picture of the JG Maps from the listing....
I suspect you will be quite pleased...  8)


I am quite pleased. The JG items pictured (but not listed in description) were included. The maps were not. However, they were neither pictured nor listed.

Overall, very happy. The OCE is great with the exception of the one damaged corner (as pictured). Of course, since I've won it I have noticed White Boxes going for roughly 15% cheaper than I have seen for the last year that I have been hunting. Oh well...it is the second OCE I have now. I may sell it at some point.

The point of the post: Thanks to Gnat for being a great community member!  :D

Sorry those maps were not included.
I still think it was a decently nice price for the OCE alone and with the other items a good price surely.

'grats. Interesting to see how much wiggle room there was in the price given that's in somewhat better condition than the 1st print listed at the same time.



Out of interest, is it in the same style ziploc as below and did it have an original price tag/if so, how much?

Same ziplock, no price tag. Looks like there used to be a tag on it though.

Envy is a sin, envy is a sin, envy..... :oops:



Grats!



BTW, (question for anyone who knows) are there any PDFs available for this item (and/or the other super rare items, besides orange B3)? I fear the wrath of my wife too much to actually bid on one of these...

Cool: that goes some way to a double confirmation. :)

I don't think either of us was 100% sure those were actually purchased from WW despite that being stated by the original owners, and that helps a bit - even if it's a relatively "standard" ziploc - since the two copies span the TSR distribution deal. Bit of a pain to try to get confirmation when the number of DGs (& PotVQs) in stated "original packing" can be counted on one(?) hand.

Pity 'bout the missing tag even if there's still a snag/residue: same location/shape would be too much to hope, eh?
Thanks! ^^

Perhaps it's a blessing to have a regulator on the spending? ;)



No legal .pdfs along still hoping the trilogy will be reprinted (or, better, reworked/expanded) as Doug/ScketreWhisp® has permission from Pete Kerestan on the text.

Dollar-wise, the digest versions aren't quite so bad: those on  
** expired/removed eBay auction **
looked good for ~$150 each and would've been a bit of a bargain if just missing the staples (seems to be a big issue for some people). Wasn't quite so sure on any moisture damage, though, despite being less apparent on those than some of their other sales.
