Offered as a 'buy it now' at a reasonable price, although sensible offers will be considered.

I'm not really up to speed on the value of the GAZ series but I would suggest that the BIN is a little removed from 'reasonable' - especially as condition is not spectacular


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

Roll up. Roll up. Roll up ladies and gentlemen. Have a look at me wares. This tonic will cure everything. This one will make your hair grow back. And here we have some ultra-rare modules. Almost impossible to find in this condition. A bargain at this price. Don't tarry too long, these sell almost the instant I  put them up. Roll up. Roll up.

Two sellers selling Greyhawk Adventures paperbacks . . . but not mentioning Gary's name.  Rose Estes gets credit for all of them.  Ouch!

There was a funny article in this weeks New Scientist. Apparently if you search Enid Blyton on Amazon, you find she has written scientific texts, works on the American Civil war, dictionaries etc. It all traces back to one Seller, who accidentally listed Enid Blyton as the author of every book they listed!

That price is lunacy...even if it had the box and the rest of the contents that price is still high.

His other AD&D auctions are priced in a similarly optimistic manner.

This is amusing and stupid at the same time:




** expired eBay auction **




Seller states at the top that the item is only available for pickup.  Yet in the payment details section it says that they ship first class or priority mail and that buyer pays all shipping costs.  And if that wasnt dumb enough, the BIN is laughable on its own, especially for the box in that condition and no dice.

Farther than the Barrier Peaks, less boxed than Tale of the Comet, and beyond Spelljammer!

OK . . . so it's just a typo.  The year ends with a whimper, not a bang.
