What did the one sell for at GenCon??


cant remember the amount but we were all scratching our heads thinking the bidders all needed lobotomys :) it did go for a high price considering the condition.

Not really a laughable description but I thought that the picture (or lack of one) was kind of strange:

Never understood why some sellers dont take pictures of the item but then put an odd graphic where the picture should be.  Kinda stupid if you ask me.  :?

Hmmm...the guy lives in Plano, Texas.  Wonder just how far away from me he is?  Maybe I will bid on the auction and ask him if I can pick them up.  Then I can go over to his house and smack him on the back of the head for being a doofus.  :P

another classic inflated condition.  listed as "Very Fine".  take a look at that nice spine crease.  on top of that, if you look closely the cover doesn't line up right, you can see part of the first page...
