I have a feeling the bidder in this case looked at the picture (it's the same as the cover on the From the Ashes box) and merely assumed they were bidding on the entire boxed set. What an expensive mistake he/she is going to make...!

I wouldn't pat Cougie on the back until he sells another 10 of these...he's got at least that many he's sitting on that he paid premium price for.  Plus it's a Newbay bidder, I dont' know if Cougie will hit the jackpot like that many more times.

If it's like that, I'll be listing my collection of H1 to H4 on Ebay

Then I'll retire  :twisted:

Yeah..you really have to wonder if these hyperbolic descriptions are from corrupt sellers or just ignorant ones.  :roll:  

"I havent seen a better set" -- then you haven't looked very hard.  I mean, it's not a bad set, I'm not picking on it specifically, but come on!

Little hint folks, it isn't RARE if there are three of them on auction in a given week...what?  You're kidding.   8O

*Counts the number of 3rd print boxed sets up this week* Nevermind then, carry on, the world's gone mad.

Can someone please explain to me why anyone would want to pay $5.99 for an advertisement page that has been ripped out of an early 80's comic book?  I could go buy 20 issues of ROM:Spaceknight or Ka-Zar for that amount and rip all the pages out of them I wanted to.  :?

The least they could do is put a picture of the pope or virgin mary on it and try to pass it off as a miracle.

Check out the guy's feedback..he's been doing this since I first got on ebay (8 years now) and has over 13k positives...he just takes magazines and tears out old advertisements and sells them, I've never seen anyone do less and make more out of it.  A lot of old timer ebayers got taken when he first started doing this, he sold old advertisements from Dragon mags that he had taken out, a lot of people bought these thinking they were "one sheet" advertisements, collectible items, until someone pointed out (when they got it in the mail) that they were only ads cut out of the magazines.  The guy's a genius.

There's actually a market for this kind of stuff.  The problem with this particular ad is, however, that (1) I doubt the advertising collecting community has Star Frontiers high on their list of things to get; and (2) those of us who are familiar with it know exactly where it comes from and know we can get it out of the quarter box comics.

If it's an ad for Pepsi from the 40s or a 65 Mustang, sure.  But this?  COme on....

Wow, same sentiments here; my most recent sale went for about half that (in U.S. dollars). The Dragon Archive has become quite the interesting item over the past six or 12 months ...

Each day I get a little closer to making a copy of my set of discs and throwing the original set onto ebay.  This is truly insane.

You might want to do that anyway, at least until you receive positive feedback.  This item is still largely used (as opposed to collected and thrown on a shelf), so if they claim after receiving it that a disc is scratched, you could send the copy. ;)  I am not advocating wholesale software piracy.  :wink:

I did just that a few weeks ago and scored $92 for the set (I think).

P.S. It is damned tempting to just burn a few sets of them every month and finance a new car though isn't it? :twisted:

I'd sell my Dragon mags if I could get the CD. I've bid on a few of them, but never won.

Happy kudos to Nobleknights :)

http://cgi.ebay.ch/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie ... %3AIT&rd=1

Given that this set usually goes for 25-45$ every time I did see it up for auction this is a real winner here :D When I looked at it yesterday evening it already was at 41$ and I decided not bidding on it. But when I looked at the final bid today morning I really had to blink a few times 8O

So whoever is the winner: Please! Whenever you fell you have too much money...Send it to me via PayPal. It wont be wasted for useless stuff (at least not in the way you do).
