1st print of MM, PHB, and DMG all in one fell swoop.

Condition isn't anywhere near mint, but they aren't hideous, either.

I think it'll all balance out in the end, Stephen.

The Bella is looking good in my display though. 8)

2nd print MMs actually seem to appear less frequently than 1st prints, so here is one (even if it is a bit beat up) in a set of manuals.

I think its the shadows and the light that makes it seem yellow, but thats just my opinion (as an amateur photographer)...

Interested parties should take a close look at the more detailed pics the seller has added to the auction.

Yup, In his reply to my request for the additional pics (especially of the Mono Mods) He stated that several folks had asked for more pics.
With the new pics the mods do not look to be anywhere near minty.
In fact two of them have tears along the spine at the top and at the bottom, and another has an inside stain (Blood, or raspberry jam?).
All of them have significant spine creases and rounded corners.
I also had asked about the items at the top left side of the original picture as well
They are maps (home made-Hand drawn?) and blank grid/hex sheets, as can be seen in the new pictures.

Yup nice listing for re-sale.

None of the sets are in great shape, but as a Store item someone would eventually take them at $15-20 I suspect.

I am willing to bet it wont last beyond the Buy-it-Now button.

I would think that the 5 box sets alone would net that much if sold seperatly.

Some of the modules look to be in pretty good shape too.

If I were a reseller I would bite............

With 3 copies of B-2?

Oh man.....................

The resellers must be slavering with glee.

Actually, I should never shop before dinner.  Saw this line on the auction and I was persuaded:

"...,M1 Into the Mealstrom, X4 Master of the Dessert Nomads,..."

Plus with the 3 B-2s I'll have something to send to the winner of the Acaeum NCAA Bracket competition!

Isn't there supposed to be a map and counters with this?



And you can call this "nice" all you want:

I've seen nicer looking used toilet paper.  But I'm sure someone will pay $70 or $80 for it.  :P
