btw I thought that you could reply to reply comment, Gnat.


It has been YEARS since I last posted a negative feedback, so I honestly do not know.
Would LOVE to do so though, as she is lying in her response.

I thought I had seen it done before, but it is not allowing me to do so...
No buttons or links or anything like it are present when I go to her Feedback page.

Not worth it. Buyers will make their own decisions, and based on what they see now, they'll be suspicious.  If you get into a "feedback" war they will be apt to dismiss both sets of comments equally.  Time to move on.

Hi,

I was watching the item mentioned above.

Now, when you go to it, the seller is a newbie started a coupla days ago.

Maybe I'm going potty - could have sworn it was her  :scratch:

Working too hard :(

Cheers,

Right, sorry, was as Spock said, a joke - in fact there have probably been 3 or 4 copies of Ptolus listed since this debacle - none appear to be in the same state / locale as the "problem" seller.

Anyone have dealings with EBay seller murtherous? Won three auctions recently on low initial bids. Seller responded to combined shipping request. Several days pass when I get a full refund and notes through EBay resolution notices saying the items were put up mistakenly. I'd be content to let it go, as the items are not on my OMG-MUST-GET-THESE list, but rather curiosity items of passing interest.



Just wondering if the winning bids were too low, and he makes a habit of putting stuff back up expecting better results.



At which point he gets reported.  :wink:

All the items are just cheap run of the mill stuff. Nothing there worth more than $5. I'd leave him with three negaives, one every few weeks so it keeps the negatives on his front page longer. Guy is clearly trying to screw you over.

Oh I don't know... those books normally sell in the $3-$5 range - I wouldn't necessarily think there's much to be gained from cancelling/relisting, especially since they could easily go unsold next time around.

Something must have happened, but I'd be inclined to give the benefit (once!) and move on... just my humble opinion of course :)

(Now when Troll & Toad did that to me for a second time, I neg'd and won't ever buy from them now  :evil: )

Don't normally do this since 99% of my dealings are positive but put this ID on your block list:
dallas.books.and.paper

They bought 3 high dollar items and attempted to return them without insurance. Post Office lost the package and now he's threatening to contact the FBI to report internet fraud despite repeated attempts to refund/replace.
Absolutely nuts.

Buyer (and seller) beware.

Thanks for the pointer MS. That's just lovely - It's nice to know my experience wasn't unique.

I was just going through this guy's feedback and noticed a seriously disturbing trend with his shipping prices.  He puts quite a few of the 3.5 Players Handbooks up for sale at $40 a pop and charges $3.55 (or thereabouts) for shipping.  But with all of the first edition books he sells, he starts them out at 1 cent and charges $12 to $14 bucks for shipping.



A seemingly brilliant strategy since very few people are going to care about paying that much for shipping when they are getting the book for next to nothing.  Except for this newbie numb nut:

Needless to say, I will be following his auctions closely for awhile and reporting any of them with higher than usual shipping quotes since it is against Ebay policy.  May not do any good but maybe it will.



By the way, since I dont follow 3/3.5 edition sales I was shocked to see people paying $40+ per book so I did a quick search on Ebay for completed auctions and I am just blown away by the prices on some of this stuff.  Most of the splatbooks seem to go for cheap but the 3.5 DMG and Players Handbook are almost always above $20 or more.  I even saw quite a few of what I would consider fairly useless splatbooks going for quite a lot.  8O

yep, a mate of mine has just started playing 3.5 and paid £51 for the 3  core books including shipping. I think it's insane but its definitely the going rate.

I have found numerous 3rd, and quite a few 4th edition books in charity shops, but never a 3.5 - perhaps it really is a proper playable version.


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

Just a quick note... Dallas.Books.and.Paper... Bought a copy of Chainmail from me, paid quick, received the item and posted positive feedback... I agree the guy should have shipped the return with delivery confirmation... but yeah the threats are kinda "over the top" so thanks for the heads-up... my transaction with him was fine, however.

Top 5 books for 3.5:

PHB
Spell Compendium
Magic Item Compendium
DMG
Rules Compendium

More than $20? Try more than $30 for these (except the DMG, which sells in the $20 - $30 range).

Actually the Spell Compendium sells for $40 and more...

3.5 is here to stay folks...   :D

I made a small fortune at Gencon last two years running selling off 3.5 books.  I bought them from around town for $5-10 each and sold them at the gencon store for $20-$40each; sold them all both years.  probably sold over 100 books over the two years.

It a gold mine I tell ya!!! :lol:

While I agree with your prices for the books you listed; I dissagree (sort of) with your top 5 list for 3.5 edition books.
None of the Monster Manuals are listed and When sold seperately (one book at a time)  they seldom sell for under $30 each.
Perhaps the list just needs to be a top 10 list instead of top 5. :wink:

Well that cements any doubt.  Who pays $75 for a copy of that particular edition of Chainmail?  :roll:
