Yup, it was me.  I didn't want to post anything until I had it in my hands for fear of jinxing it. It was described well, got it just as described with 6 Reference Sheets and an errata sheet.....no pencil marks anywhere even though he says in the description there is. Box is solid, the couple tears at the corner/edge are just in the paper coating, the box is solid all the way through. Anyway, I'm stoked.  8O

P.S. May consider offers if anybody wants a solid woodie......?


Third printing?

Yup, third print. The guy did a great job of describing it, I'm kinda surprised he didn't realize what it is actually worth. Hell, maybe he only paid $20 for it, so, at $450 he 20x his investment. :)

Was any of the following part of the deal?
-Meeting at a crossroads at midnight
-Contracts signed in blood
-Renunciation of Christ & of all his works
-A seven- or ten-year window to enjoy your purchase

Great haul. I'm a bit disappointed you're now open to offers. I would hope such a find would be kept and cherished.

Just got married, had a 3 week honeymoon, saving for a house. Wife gave me some serious angry looks as I clicked Buy-It-Now to boot. We've all got our reasons, no need to feel any sort of way about it.

Well, to make this short, as the new timey thing zapped what I wrote.  :(

These guys are all VF or better. A bit of rust on a couple, but not too bad. Now I have to make the terrible decision about who stays and who goes.

I ditched many of my old con programs in a fit of organized recycling sometime back when I was in high school (or perhaps undergrad).  Sigh....

I pretty much did the same thing about 15 years ago. Regretted it within a year. Slow go trying to find them again.

I got an UK release of the Mentzer Basic set in what I'm calling "novel form" in that it is digest sized. Probably sold by a member here, in fact.

Been looking for a nice copy for quite some time.  But most have been selling for around $200 so I was happy to get this one.  Looks like a little staple rust.

I missed the bidding or you would have paid more for it.  :)

It's a better copy than what I have currently.

Anyone have another they want to sell in similar or better condition?
