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:


That's actually a pretty good price ;)

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.

If you can get all those books for $150, you're crazy not to.

I count 75 items. At $5 apiece, which is far less than a lot of those items go for, you're already over $350.
Of course, the lack of pictures makes it rough.

No book store is going to sell that many books for $150, especially with all the hardcovers.

With the additions ot the list, his asking price is now reasonable, assuming the reserve isn't much higher than $350. But, the lack of condition descriptions and no pictures.. well, I wouldn't touch it with an 11' pole.

Not on ebay, but I thought this worth a giggle after you get over bawking at the price tag.

DragonQuest game, second item from the bottom of the page.

Other Games - buy Other Games now from LegendGames

£40!!

Methinks they may be stuck with that copy for a *long* time.


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

That's not as funny as them wanting 20 pounds for a copy of JG Witches :D

My copy has been sitting in my store for months at $3 US, lol.

"Put a bid now." I says.

"Naw, I'll do it at work better."

Phones are down at work, of course.
