Price is right!


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

Second Hand book sellers can be real dopes when it comes to listing old D&D stuff. I have a few times seen such dumb prices and listings. I note he/she says:



We are currently in the process of listing our entire, previously unlisted, Military/War collection. Check back often or browse our eBay Store.



With prices like that I can't wait. I am sure they will sell like hot cakes!

Ok, so it's not the actual description that's laughable, but

the linked Youtube video is a very shaky. Someone needs a tripod real bad.

I was feeling REALLY queezy after watching it. I almost threw up all over the Dragon Mag's... :shaking:

This has to be one of my favourites:

The picture of the Dragon magazines is one thing but do you really need a 3 minute shaky video of them?

Good spot!  I just looked the auction again with the volume on and I can add that they description is pretty crazy too.  Don't try and low ball him with your offers of 25 cent - $1 an issue. These are collectible and out of print so he wants $3 or more per issue.  This guy is out to lunch.

At least he doesn't want at least $500.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

He can't talk right either, it sounds like he has a d**k in his mouth. He keeps saying stuff like "pacific" instead of "specific".  What a tool.  

With that said, I have a bunch of later issues I am looking to offload too, I am wonder if he will be willing to give me $2.50 per issue since with his logic, he should still be able to make $1 an issue AT LEAST on them.  :lol:

Here's another crazy price:

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **





Look its 10% off for a limited time!  This is about a $10 book that isn't very difficult to find.



I actually don't mind this seller (have bought some stuff from him before) but it looks like they picked the price for this one from somewhere the sun don't shine.

I found the countdown of White Dwarf magazine from #70-105 riveting.

Just wondering ... are we his target market and he found us (I'm sure we must make up most of the 6 views of the video now)?  Has he been hiding out here complementing us only to butter us up for a sale?
