My white box set sold for less than half that much last week.
Box was better, though the books about the same.
Plus I had a 4th pring Greyhawk in the listing with the box too.

Though the buyer has yet to pay for it.
I might be relisting mine very soon. :lol:

I usually give a week from date of sale, even though I'd prefer 3 days or less. Some folks need time to transfer into their PayPal acounts. Sucks, but it happens. The nice ones let you know ahead of time.

$91 vs. $165. Or were you meaning $0.99? ;)

I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST ITEMS IN THE MAIL.



Someone needs to tell this guy it doesn't matter what he wants, it is what paypal and ebay will stick him with as the seller.

He has 100% positive feedback with one neutral in the past year, so that isn't bad.

He says this dog-rogered module is "very rare."

Cthulhu Bedtime Stories?



Nothing particularly funny except the item being sold (and the complete lack of description of what it is).

This lot is neither huge nor rare. Seller lists the score or so of character and castle cards from the Ravenloft boxed set as Books.

So which copy do you choose as your listing picture, the beat to crap X1 or the decent looking X12?

Class 5 rarity?  :lol:

Where in the world would you pull that kind of description?



This I possibly one of the hardest D&D items to find it is in amazing condition and a great item for a collection. I have search numerous time to locate an available copy and it has been impossible. 24 of 27 Sheets CLASS 5 RARITY.




Methinks "Class 3 rarity" fits better

:wink:

From here probaby (although correctly identifying what the item actually is isn't apparently the same thing).



I grilled the same seller on a bunch of Dragons he unloaded.  Couldn't get passed his "no returns no matter what" mentallity.  I didn't feel like explaining / arguing SNAD and he didnt offer more pictures until the last day of auctions so I passed.  He also made a comment or 2 that led me to believe that he knew of the site and was hedging.  Shrug.



If anyone here won any of his stuff and it shows up, please feel free to comment.  I could be totally wrong.

Yeah, if someone wins something, definitely let us all know. I'm curious too how things work out.

"valuued at $200 in good condition the last time I checked"



Checked where? I'm guessing Amazon.

The answer to this listing is found in the seller's location.  Ridgeland, SC does not have a good reputation among the residents of nearby Savannah, GA when I lived there.



Here's a recent article about the city where they are gaining a reputation for being a speed trap:



http://banthecams.org/201104021044/SC-B ... House.html



I can't remember all of what was involved in it's reputation, but I think the marriage requirements were more lax there than anywhere, leading to lots of quickie weddings.  :twisted:


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Laughable only because of how many bids there are ... ON MOLDY, WATER DAMAGED books
