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


well lets face it, the lad is an absolute muppet. if anyone buys that lot, they deserve to get ripped off imo :)

if the lad gets someone to bite, then good for him.

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


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

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.

Phones are down at work, of course.

Did somebody post this already?  If so, then it deserves to be posted again.  I feel a little ill about this one. . . hey, but at least they are 3-hole punched as well . . .

*rofl* :lol:

The picture is pretty poor, but I do hope those are OCE (C) booklets, rather than 5th prints. Otherwise I'd hate to think what might happen should someone ask that question...

I got myself all in a dither on that one last night before he posted the pictures. I was hoping with that type of BIN it might have been a woody, but low and behold it wasn't. :roll:

My thoughts exactly.  However, the way these things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if some idiot goes for this...probably not the BIN price, though.

Couldn't have been much further from that? :P

Dull colors would tend to indicate the latest OCE print and the Wiz Greyhawk is good to see in that context! Is a pretty poor pic, though.

aside: re. Collecting Addictions... • Collecting General •  The Acaeum

*points to your post above*

In the speling buuk it's "lo and behold" (or even "lo' and behold", since it's short for "look") in current usage. *jab* ;)

Then again, when referencing this particular auction it very well could be "low". :wink:

Impressed to know you were sat there (all night?), waiting to pounce on that mystery auction...

I know there's not a lot of love here for White Wolf stuff, but can you resist the "Vampire the Masquerade Biggest Collection Ever"???
