I just don't know how it matters. If you bid according to "book" value (or even a lot less) you wouldn't own the thing. Just because there is some perceived going rate doesn't mean you can actually purchase one at that price because those prices don't reflect what's going on this very minute. Yeah you could have waited for the "mint listed price for B-3", but it might be 5 years before you get that historical price for an OB3 because they are not listed often (and besides, this historical price will change as you wait).


EXACTLY..........

If I had stopped at the highest Minty Price as then listed on the Acaeum's Price/Condition list, then the fantasy museum would have it instead of me..........


Back then, my bidding for that module had little to do with perceived prices, or listed values.
I had my own value for the OB-3 based on other less tangible things than a price guide ..........  
And I still do.

First print or fading?

Never seen that reddish, wine coloured purple though. Maybe that one's been aged in an oak cask.

Interesting ... 97-percent feedback ratio and he took three years off of eBay. He doesn't even have any DSRs yet. See feedback for details.

Indeed it is. I just looked at the printing info. They seem to sell for a fair bit too.

D&D Lost Tamoachan Origins edition



The module you are looking at, 184 out of 300, has no writing in it at all.



The one that was sold recently would be copy 39, making this copy the 40th known to exist

Here is a massive lot of 90 modules with a $525 bin or $400 starting bid.



The listing is a bit melodramatic though - makes you wonder if the Seller can be trusted:

Actually, comparing the price to the contents, it does not seem very "interesting" to me.

Is it just me or is feeBay hiding all bidder ids not matter the price of the auction. I though it was for high priced auctions but it seems that they are also doing it for .99 too!

Yes.  They started a while back.  (Though, last I checked, auctions listed through ebay.co.uk still weren't masking bidders for some reason.)



They claim it's to reduce the incidence of fraudulent third-party offers on lower-priced items.  You know it's just to prevent people from going outside eBay for transactions though. :roll:
