Nice win, there. Had I had the money, I would have been very tempted to buy it too.

I was tempted too - to complete my trilogy of stapleless WW books.  Although I did just pick up another Misty Isles with staples.

Ok, time to stop spending money on ebay. Convention is too damn close, but I just could not resist auctions.


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

I was able to, thanks to my lovely wife, purchase an item from Noble Knight... a 2nd print woodgrain OD&D box set. At ~ $2100, I am pretty danged happy. Now, the long priority deliver waiting game... holy cow, this is what you guys feel all the time. Getting something that was only a dream.

If this win was by an Acaeum member, could you shoot me a PM please.   :)


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

Not sure if I ever owned an early print of the players handbook. This 3rd print is in very nice shape.

Pretty book. It is in better shape than all of my books combined. Well, maybe not. But, still, that's pretty.

Is condition additive, serl'? ^^

Not that many copies unplayed, but looks like that one qualifies. The seller's "GOOD" in the description seems to be an understatement of condition for a (welcome) change...
Nicely picked up, Jason: I'd guess that if the lemur asks around again for further book dismembering for print order checking that you're not going to be offering? ;)

Better than being multiplicative, I suppose, which is just more addition in a more rapid succession.

Thanks gnat, everyone...

I think it is an unplayed or very lightly played copy. Interior has one flaw, on the inside cover there is part of a blank white sticker. I swear I've seen this kind of thing on rulebooks before. Outside cover has some shelfwear to the corners and outer edges, some light rubbing that has taken off some of the color. This cover is much cooler with the AD&D at the top rather than tthe yellow band across the corner. That AD&D font brings back memories.

I'm sure you'll get a tidy profit on the resell.  Though maybe not as good as on the X10 for $9:




** expired/removed eBay auction **




I'm sure you sent a nice kickback to the seller you stole it from when you resold it for 10 times:

Funny, you falsely accuse me of trying to rip people off by buying low and selling high but there you are up to your head in it.  Can't stand hypocrites.
