maybe photo copies ?




They look like badly done fakes to me.  The item in the last picture looks particularly like a photocopy.  Have no idea what the deal is with the pinkish cover on the Men & Magic.  Maybe Cherry Kool-Aid?  :P

The same thought occurred to me. They look like old photocopies of one of the original sets. It is strange however, that there is a printing line on the inside of the pink cover. If they were photocopies, who would bother to do that?

I can only hope the idiots that dropped $500 on these last week are looking at the current flood of Whiteys starting at $50 each and are saying "Oh Sheeeeeeet...."

People can keep collecting....but do it intelligently. There is simply no reason for a white box to go for three times it's value....except that EGG died last week and a lot of casual lookie loos got on ebay and went berserk overpaying for the item by bidding against each other. A more thoughtful buyer might have waited a week or so, picked his spots, and come out with the same thing for, say, $150-$200 instead of $500. You watch, this next batch of whiteys put up to capitalize on those few crazy sales will come down to earth and go for their true value.
