Actually, this makes a lot of sense.  "Disenfranchised" gamers dump stuff, gaming stores go out of business because they can't clear the shelves.  The total "mass" of older D&D stuff diminishes, and every D&D item takes one rarity step forward.  Common items become inexplicably valuable.  

3E seems to be continuing the trend.  I've vowed to not to collect modules* because I just can't stomach the thought of paying $5-15 for something that I remember buying for $1, and subsequently selling for $0.50.  :cry:

* except monos, foreign prints, super-modules, & ultra-rares if I can sneak em past you folks...

>>I've vowed to not to collect modules* because I just can't stomach the thought of paying $5-15 for something that I remember buying for $1, and subsequently selling for $0.50.

That's an understandable sentiment.  I'm afraid I'm quite a bit more mercenary than that - if I see something for sale for $10 and I know I can sell it for $20, I'm going to pick it up and sell it.  The only reason I focus on the collectible genres I do (such as D&D) is because I have a passionate emotional investment in the items - I love what I sell.  When you spend 80-100 hours of personal time a month finding the stuff, buying it, scanning it, grading it, selling it, and shipping it, you have to love it, otherwise you go insane.  It's the only thing that keeps the mercantile aspect from eclipsing the joy of the hobby.  Given different financial circumstances (which seem to be slowly approaching), I would happily ditch the home business and make gaming just a hobby again with the time I would save.  Unfortunately that's not possible right now - so I sell what I like to indulge in.

Putting that in a more global perspective, I think the primary reason the market has exploded in the past 5 years is because we're growing older, we still love D&D, and none of us have the time we used to, to game with our friends.  Sometimes experiencing the game vicariously is the best we can do - and so nostalgia drives the market.  Anyone with a purely $$$ interest in the market would be wiser to invest in Wall Street, and leave D&D behind.  I recommend medical equipment and drug companies - the baby boomers are beginning to retire.

Bet you are glad you didn't take my offer  :-)


Thanks, Mike. I was really amazed at what it went for after seeing what you paid for your "perfect" Tsoj. BTW, what offer was that? Did I miss a message/PM, or has Alzheimers set in early for me?  :)

See, this is why I'm against using critical fumbles.  It just confuses things.  Mine is quite similar in condition to Desuma's -- and may be going on eBay soon if the market is doing that well...

Not sure what the reserve is on this "Classic Warfare" (depends whether they know $45-55 is about par), but it's currently under $7 with 23 hours to go.
