[quote]Looks nice, Jeff.  How much did Spades have to pay the guy down at Kinko's?[/quote]

Pffft.  Kinkos would be cheating.  I simply used ebay's little-known "time-travel" feature.  Allowing me to buy things cheap because ebay doesn't technically exist yet.  I just bought two "lost" Shakespeare manuscripts from the man himself.

So...this warriors of mars book. my friend has just mailed me and updated things:

Dirt on the spine, won't come off. Moderate staple rust.  Minor edge wear.  Back inside cover has a price maked out in ink and rewritten in same ink.  Booklet is strong in binding with no rips or tears.

and here is a pic:

imo, fantastic value for money. me is super-happy :)

Now you'll have to check to see if the price list has the dice set's price corrected in ink or not :)

Shane I gave you the benefit of the doubt, and figured you were trying to determine which price was crossed out vs. presuming it to be the dice that were crossed out ;)
