Definitely a good deal you got Falconer.  I was prepared to bid quite high on this, but I was somewhat put off by his response to my question:

Q: Hi, will you consider sending them other ways with the US post office? Media Mail is a substantially cheaper way to send books - even Parcel Post would be less expensive than Priority Mail. Thanks

  A: At this time, I am unable to determine how to add the additional costs of tracking to the shipping methods you ask about. I am new to eBay, and, as such, I am wanting to take all accountablity and traking steps I can. In future auctions, I will investigate how to get both tracking and cheaper methods of shipping. Thank you for your interest in this auction.

I even emailed him back explaining how Delivery Confirmation works with all methods of mailing. . . and then I simply forgot to check the auction in time to snipe it (the pitfalls of not using any software  :)  )

Still, better you than me. . . I'm sure you will put in to better use.   8)

The seller payed for shipping and insurance himself, and the items were amazingly carefully wrapped: both the White Box and the Holmes Basic Box were in hard plastic containers, even! This is the best bargain I've ever had...

Heya, there, <Falconer>!
Congratulations on the purchase! Yeah, sellers who undergrade aren't common (although on this lot the piccies were a good indications).
Throwing in shipping and insurance is highly generous, though; especially since the auction said "buyer pays" :)

But it's always easier when you lock out the barbarians at the gate...

The comment which made me smile was:

       Q: hi, I am 3220 rated, a Titanium Powerseller & could pay with pay pal (or cash US) I ask as I live in UK, may I bid please? Obviously I would pay shipping charges,(GPM for smaller items or insured surface (M bag) preferred. Thanks for your time either way, no offence taken or intended Please "reply" to this so I know which auction were on about, thanks Failing that I now have a USA based address you can send item(s) to that will be forwarded to me, would that be better/ok? --Dave

         A: If I understand your posting, you have a US address to which I can ship. At this time, I am only selling to buyers with US addresses. Thank you for your interest.

*whistles innocently*

After that, I wasn't at all fussed ;)

It's funny. When he uploads a new auction his Seller status varies from Silver to Titanium. If he asks for international shipping he is always a Titnium Seller  :roll:

UK auction.  7 day auction, approx $5.12 for the opening bid.


That's kinda sad that these items are ending with no bids.  

I had one in the store for about a week; I had it listed at $15.

Here's a Silver Anniversary Box Set.  It actually includes an L3 and some other Silver Anniversary books.  Shipping is steep though.  And does it really take almost 50 pictures to describe this item?  And what's the point of a reserve if you state it in the item description?  Why not just make that the starting bid and avoid the charges?

This seller obviously has too much time. I saw the Return to the Tomb of Horrors box with 25 photos and asked myself the same question. 25 pics! As if it was something rare. Tsk tsk...

I was seconds away last night from buying that 36 mod BIN, then I saw they don't take PayPal.  So if you're a reseller or you just want to upgrade conditions of your items and sell the lowers and repeats, it's actually a very fair price.  Have fun.

The auction shows surprisingly few details for a Tsojconth. Some more photos or a more accurate description of the condition is needed.
