** expired eBay auction **




I have one of these "Come Visit My Dungeon" stickers and happened on this auction.  Mine is still on its backing and not defacing a woody, lol.  Does anyone know anything about these stickers?  Who made them and when?

MDR003 has some Dungeon Geomorph sets 1 - 3 for sale one of them looks like a 2nd Edition Lizard the rest are third edition wizards - (I am sure now he has gained a free plug for the product he will enlighten us all) :)

Also has Monster and Treasure sets.

The Fringe Dweller wields a mighty blow against the scaled hide of the dragon, turning rapidly to avoid being enveloped by the flame directed at him (picture Keanu Reeves - matrix). The battle has raged at such length that the village folk have taken vantage points on the mountain face to watch and await the outcome.

Has this one come up before?  Because I seem to recall a discussion on those prints/drawings.

Yes, this was listed before but I can't remember what happened? Too high of a starting price or reserve not met maybe.  I got an email from the seller the other day seeing if I was interested in buying it though.

Shipping seems cheap enough, only $50.

I doubt it will sell anyways.

Smells like a "fishing expedition" to me....see what kind of interest it pulls and what kind of offers he gets. Reasonable chance he doesn't expect to sell it for that amount.

Well considering he dropped the opening price almost in half, I am thinking he might actually be expecting to sell it this time:

Perosnally, based on what 1st prints have sold for in the last couple of years, I don't think the price is that bad. The shipping is ridiculous and the opening bid will likely warn off much competition for it, but I don't think that if it sold for $2800, it would be that far off.

High opening bids essentially kill 90% of the interest, as only the select few with the money will want it, and they probably already have one, or three. Sucks, really, but such is the way of things. I wish it weren't right after Christmas and right before Valentine's Day... one day, though, I'll get a woodgrain again. Just have to wait and wait. :)

Yeh, it's a perception thing. If he started the opening bid at $1000, still a lot, he'd sell the thing.  Maybe his next "lowering" of the item will finally catch a fish.

I'd wager money we're going to see a VGC frankenstein woodgrain on the market very soon...   :roll:

Good catch.



One last warning, though: newbie seller, poor feedback, immediate payment required. Added together, I'm thinking: "my car payment is due the day after this auction ends." The winning bidder should be prepared for numerous annoying emails if he doesn't pay within three minutes.
