I don't think these came in shrink so it probably was an inhouse shrink job.

That is a great lot!  I would guess the value of the lot is closer to the $600 mark.  Lots of great stuff in there!

D'oh! (I read this after sending my PM to you.)

I was thinking of trading the shrinked Catapult Run for an un-shrinked one that I can read. Looks like I may not need to do that. Should I tear off the shrink on Catapult Run? :twisted:

For what it's worth, the place I got it from didn't appear to shrink stuff, but I can't be certain they didn't, nor can I be certain of that particular copy's history. The store had a mix of the typical used items, plus some items that looked like vintage new stock, including the Fez and the three Golden Heroes items (which are also in shrink in various condition).

Very nice pick up..

Brette:)

I was feeling the same way!

The first pic is of the items I got at the first store I went to a couple weeks ago. And although there's nothing spectacular in there, IMO, it was good (for me, anyway) because I actually found a number of items that I have been waiting patiently for to acquire at good prices. So I was still pleased, because it was much better than my typical luck, and the prices were very low. ($1 or $3 for every item in that first pic, except for Stormbringer 5th, which was $10, which is still a good price for it.)

But then I couldn't believe what I kept finding over the subsequent days!

I wonder how easy it is to fake the shrink-wrap? It always makes me think twice before bidding on those.
