Do any of you know why this went for near $100?  Doesn't it sell for $50?

I'm sorry in advance if I'm being an idiot.

Its not THAT rare.  I've had about 4 copies come through my hands via trades.  Mostly it is crossover fan appeal for the D&D players AND the novel readers.  But yeah, looks like a newBay bidding war.

I think that's actually just the crown on an upward trend - this may be the new value for the item.  Another one sold for $91 (3149032464) and another is currently at $76 (2958368345).  Granted, all relatively-new collectors, but precedent is being set too consistently here for it to be a fluke.  (3148525277 sold low at $41, without documentation.)



Ironically, the Wizards' policy of printing ESD/PDF files through SVGames may be the culprit here - this is an item that won't cheapen in value (or be made affordable) by a simple print-out re-release.  WotC has never shown any indication of this item being republished.



As an aside, that may be what started the whole H1 "price fixing" frenzy this year - the module has enough individual pieces to it that even casual collectors greatly value a real copy, over the $4.74 ESD.  From customer feedback, I know there's a similar mentality behind B10 and X10 as well.

I agree. I have it on my list with a value of 70 €. I noted 5 sales with an average of 74,09 € this year in Europe and the U.S. (there have been more sales, though) and Olav's database showed 6 sales for an average auf 47,69 € in 2002.



This is an obvious trend with a massively increased value.
