This item arrived today.

Now I am feeling like I am in a bit of a moral dilemma. The P&P was just 0.99p but the item was packaged sufficiently to resist a thermal attack. Also, knowing its weight, it probably cost the guy in excess of £5 to post as it was here within 48hrs. I think he has lost out all round and has effectively paid for someone to take the game away.  8O   I toyed with dropping him a line to cover P&P, but tbh, on the few things I sell, I make sure that at least the postage costs are covered. Any thoughts?

Dave - paypal a coupla quid shipping, out of the blue - call it D&D karma.

(I've done this on occasions and my decent deals way outweigh the occasional psycho - if the balance changes perhaps I'd rethink! :D )


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Sweet deal but then the seller stuffs it a bubble envelope after assuring me it would be packaged to protect it from damage.

The GW Boxed set had the bottom creased in four spots. The corners survived but the box lid already had two of them taped so they were able to spread out some instead of tearing.

It wasn't steamrolled, but weight was put at the center of the top and bottom and you can see the stress lines now on the corners of the top as well.

I had a similar situation about a month back from a seller. Except this person just put it in a normal flimsy mailer and one single piece of bubble wrap inside on the top of the box -- as if that was going to stop any and all damage during shipment.  I swear some people have no common sense  :x

I now contact each seller before paying and ask them to tell me how the item will be packaged to prevent it from being bent or damaged in shipping.

It still doesn't help all the time but I feel better about leaving a neg if they have clearly lied to me about packaging.

Nope these all look like decent prices. I've seen GDQ much higher and Temple of the Frog.

The price for the GDQ looks high, but it also looks in better condition as well.   :)

Recently got a SW B2 2nd print in with a B/X ebay acquisition. The X set is the true-first print I've posted in another thread... the Basic set is a 2nd print Moldvay but it was missing the proper B2 and had this SW 2nd instead.

Anybody know what a 2nd print SW B2 is worth?

hehe.



I paid a lot for the auction because I could tell from the photos that the X set was in fact a true 1st and everything was in fine or better shape.




** expired eBay auction **




This was after I talked him down from $75. bagged dice, books mint, with all of the inserts... here's my thread about the details of this set: viewtopic.php?t=8765



I wonder why he had a SW B2 of the wrong printing in this set?

Nice find John:  I have three sets of these, and posted some info @ http://tomeoftreasures.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=560 but I appear to have deleted the pics that had been there.  

Let me see if I can upload those again....

WOW!
80 cards?
WOW!

And all the (FEW) cards in my newly aquired set look near mint.
Nothing is punched or torn.

Just picked up an OD&D 4th print.  It was less about price and more about getting it into my collection.  Still, going into Gen Con I don't feel I paid anything astronomical.

I would have liked to have one in the collection, but to me, that one wasn't about price. It was about condition.  :D
