Orange flyleaf PHB if I'm not mistaken.  Worth an email to check the printing number if you want one.

It was legit after all, IMHO.  Foulfoot came in and set the record straight on the lightness of the paperstock in question.

There was ALOT of debate and I personally wasn't convinced until Mr Foot came in and had a compelling set of arguments.

It's a worthy thread to review!  I just can't find it at the moment.  I'm sure someone will post a link.


This one from April 2004?

(Was diverted, reading several other posts whilst searching; including Jon's comment re. paper stock from an earlier (2/03) post: post-1060.html )

:(

I'm almost certain the original owner wouldn't have "thrown it away" for that price, even if they were unaware of the printing distinctions.

(How many of us (especially those without families) have got lines in their will to say "don't trash all that 'D&D stuff', since it's not all common/mass-produced?).

(aside: hey, what happened to that interesting looking new forum "for re-evaluating prices on <The Acaeum>" that was around earlier today?? ;) )

OK. How many people spotted the cover art to Dragon #241, but weren't saying so...?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5912885112

I made a test bid and the previous high bidder was relatively cautious (<cntrspll> at $102.50; now with me at $203.50), fwiw.
Apologies if they're on here! ;)
Reserve is $500 and over 3 days to go.

From the same seller; 11 Judges Guild items for $1.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5913211063

Oops, just went to $1.25. *g*.

=

Not so cheap...  ($100 at present with 1 1/2 days to go).
Has anyone heard back from this seller as to whether these 11 modules are actually shrinkwrapped? I never heard back...
Just out-of-interest, anyhow; but would seem reasonable, if so.

And for fun... How much for Tiamat?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5912400034
($51 and 10 hours to go)

The pic shown doesn't look like its shinked and it looks strangly like half a coffee stain right in the middle of it, far from the MINT it claims to be anyway...

Who cares if it's MIS, $100 is stupid for it anyways.

Seller states in the auction description that he downloaded the pic from the internet. With a 1-feedback seller buying this lot is gambling.

[capsoff]
"I will include one picture of the Tomb of Horrors as my sample pic at this time. I downloaded it off the net. It will serve as an example of the auctioin, just in csae you've never seen the old modules. I love d&d...... I have pictures now, but someone has bid on the item so i cannot alter the images. If you need to see pics i will be happy to send them to you via email"
[/capsoff *g*]

Certainly would need a proper pic/confirmation of shrinkwrap on the actual modules for sale, I think.
Was just wondering whether anyone had had such a response...

11 modules stated "in plastic", not one... plus the "odds and sods".

Agreed though, Ralf; gambling, without any further confirmation.

*wonders whether the Dragon cover art has been pushed off the page by now*

Perhaps by in plastic the seller refers to packing in bubble wrap or plastic sleeves. :roll:  8O

Or maybe he used that sticky plastic to "preserve" the covers.  I've seen some auction descriptions where the seller thought that made it more collectible.  Ouch....

I think Toth is a fine last name.  Quit picking on poor Ralf!

:D
