New record (I hope) for "one of the most rare and sought after modules of all time";

R4: $330; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5226552981

(OK, would rate it higher than R1, as noted, but... :?)


The others went "cheaper".

Those auctions make my recent purchase that much better.  :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:  :wink:

I knew Lopez was going to bid high.  I put a rediculous bid in and he topped that.  With fools like this, it is going to be hard for me to get an R4.

I bought copies of R1 and R2 off on Aneoth the same day he sold his stuff to Badmike.  He offered me a really good deal on his remaining R3 (shrinkwrapped) and R4 but since I had already spent quite a bit on other stuff, I told him that I would pass and get them later for (I hoped) a bit cheaper price.

I still don't have an R3 or R4 and I now have a fractured pelvis from kicking myself in the ass so many times.  :cry:

Bundle of 16 Dragonlance modules | eBay

Seller has ZERO feedback and shows a S&H of $15 dollars.  I wonder if Cougar has spammed the seller with his M-bag question?  And wouldn't it be funny if instead of 16 full size modules Cougar gets the micro versions instead?  :wink:

Too true.  Growing up in the countryside as I did, I was astonished the day I wandered into a hardware & gardening store and saw the large plastic bags labelled "sheep manure" for several dollars a bag.  This auction is not so far off in its astonishment.

:lol: :lol: Dun think his paws could cope with those! :o

M-Bags are fine with that seller, actually.

I thought $220 was a pretty good deal for his Polys http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5225195501 , then those Dragons went through at $300 on a single bid.
But now Prufock is telling me almost all the Polys still have their mailing covers... (I didn't ask that question, just wanted them to read/possibly even use).


p.s. Just remembered they listed a few "Living Greyhawk" issues in there, too. Any particular issues I should look out for? Just the first few??

Grayson what do these usually go for?  I have them all in bright mint condition and I am just curious.

$6-10 for DL 1-13. $15-25 for DL 14, 15, 16.  I've got them cheaper in my store, but mine aren't all in fantastic shape ;)

The "Classics" volumes that combine the modules, go for ~$20 each.

Here's the question I raised on this auction to the seller:

"Can you offer any photos of the collection? Why is your price so high? These aren't that valuable. Right now at the used bookstore that I work at, I can buy this same collection... in very good to near mint condition... for about $150. And there is little to no collectable value to the 2nd edition material.

Thank you."

Let's see how this turns out, okay? :)

I particularly love the 1st print "Revised" edition DMG. 8O I wonder if all the other books he lists as first prints are "really" first prints, particularly the Monster Manual and the Deities & Demigods. :roll:

Heh, and to have the priviledge of bidding, you have to contact him first.

But hey, he's an 85% FB seller, I'm sure nothing could go wrong.

All the books are from 2nd edition unless they're noted to be prior to.

Here's the response I got:

"If you can get them that cheap, then buy it, if there is no collectable value then why even bother sending this kind of a message?"

And still no answer about a picture of the collection. I'll be very suprised if he actually sells the lot.
