How many of us are going to ask him, "What are you selling exactly?" :twisted:

it is:

Sorry. I was not clear. I am paraphrasing the Seller. If you read his opening sales pitch, he states the item is available from an Amazon Seller who has lousy feedback compared to himself with 100%. i.e. why buy an item with scuffing on the cover for $47 from an Amazon Seller with 96% feedback. He has one in NM condition, has 100% feedback and will start the bidding at a mere $26.

I always find it amusing when Sellers refer to Amazon as silly prices abound amongst the Second Hand book sellers that list there.

However, I know that particular Seller to be very good. His 'I wanna sell second hand cars' sales pitch made me chuckle. I'll edit my original post to make it more clear.

Erm...  I'm confused by the pictures:  
** expired eBay auction **




:D



(Actually, almost all the guy's RPG items seem to be the same, this one's just picked at random.  I get it, you've got a lot of stock -- I'd have liked to have seen the actual item you're offering though. :roll: )

"Slightest to none shelfwear".  8O



Seller must be smoking dried moose droppings up there in Ontario.  Obviously something wrong with his eyes.  :lol:

That is funny. Look at his M1, "clean pages free of stains or writing" - maybe there is a fine print disclaimer down the bottom - 'this statement excludes tears, scrunching, folding and having been fed through a shredder.'

[edit:  Removed my critical comments because I asked the seller if he knew these were coverless.  Seller says, "NO! I did not Thank You! I have covers to match, I know nothing about D&D I guess you found that out. I will revise"]
