Yes, it was me. I am indeed prepared to throw a lot at it.

I think that we are in for an interesting ride on this auction.  
And hopefully it might draw a few more copies out from the woodwork.

Quick because I spotted it at work.  Tempting prospect.  One still in shrinkwrap.  Even if it is split.  Good excuse to tear the whole lot off.


John,  I think your strategy was just fine.  No need to start small.  

As a direct quote from the ST1 seller ...

"Someone who has since placed a bid nearly got the bargain of a lifetime when they asked for a buy it now price. It was only that someone had placed a bid that I declined the opportunity."

You almost had my vote as the best buy of the year.  So don't give up!

I almost cried when I read that.   :cry:  Probably the closest I'll ever get.

I feel for you.

I was there when the first one was offered for sale on rec.games.frp.marketplace back in 1996.

Holy Crap!  She's on to us. . . Gather the Inner Circle together and prepare the Summoning.

Our action must be swift if we are to remain hidden from the world at large. . .

Please ignore her and let Mike Stackpole handle this:  he's the Industry Watch Committe for GAMA and for years he's defended the industry, performed expert testimony in court cases in a pro-gaming manner, etc.

I've emailed him the link.

I believe it is more sinister than that...

One of our wives has discovered the secret checking account and uncovered the heretofore untold boatloads of cash that has gone into collecting...

She has undertaken a quest to destroy the industry and therefore torpedoing our hobby... damn it!

I'm gonna call Dan Rather and have him do some investigating. I've got some documents around here somewhere that prove playing D&D makes you a civic-minded, tree-hugging, food kitchen volunteering philanthropist!


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

For those who still need to fill a few gaps (myself included)...

Dragon "#51, 52, 56-105, 108 and Best of Vol. 1 & 2... great condition".
(Separately bagged, etc. Looks like a good deal from the larger pics)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5923282790
$15.50 with 1 day to go.

(As usual with such bundles, kinda makes a nonsense of The Acaeum valuations, no?)

Other ST1 seller auction: turns out his blue "Basic Rules" book is a good condition GW printing
(without box, alas, but c/w Page Not Found ).

That's what I get for asking... :roll:

Agreed, not quite in the same league(!!), but only £2.99 at present:

Very, very, very worn and rather tatty 1st print DMG. $12.99 BIN.

Go on; make me smile! :D

btw. Did I say it was heavily worn?
(Good reference pic, though).
