well the_game_emporium must have a secret, he must cast a charm spell on ebayer...

He's done well lately but here's one he virtually donated to me recently.  $76.00 for a fourth minus set.  (It just came today and I'm still smiling)

Apparently the quality of crack cocaine has gone up recently, and this guy has a good dealer.

The DEA needs to check this dude out. Not to mention anyone who bids.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

HOLY SHIT! Nice catch! But I don't see the nun-shaped TSR logo characteristic of a 1st print ruler. Am i missing it?

Yup.  It's the B9, which sometimes spikes.  Meanwhile, a very nice B9 at 3178016223 is going hungry for bids ... :P

Good question.  I really like how in the auction title they use "ORIGINAL" and in the descritpion they state "Special Silver Anniversary Issue! A Must for ANY Dungeons & Dragons Collector!!"  but not that it's only one book from the Silver Anniversy box set.

Wow, That's got to be a record for a Judges Guild item!  The same seller has several items that I would consider rarer such as:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 3177203777

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 3177201717

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 3177208861

I think the trick is in the way the info is provided: "(Blackmoor)" & "Blackmoor by Dave Arneson".  Gives the impression perhaps that it is a lost TSR product.  Notice how it soesn't say anywhere that it is a Judges Guild product...  Pretty sneaky I'd say.

That davidvanwie guy is either one of those crack smokers or a dot-com millionarie who just wants to buy lots of stuff and doesn't care about the price.

I get lots of hits on the name in google, but maybe this is him :
Media Relations - Palo Alto Software

That last auction (giants) is misleading if not downright fraudulent. I know he mentions the silver anniversary, but only in passing after noting the 1978 copyright in the first sentence... 8O

This Silver Anniversary crap is really starting to piss me off!  

I realize that these buyers just don't know what they are really bidding on, its actual rarity and the corresponding value, but to mislead someone down that path. . .  to encourage a false value and imply a rarity that doesn't exist. . .

I am just getting angrier about it every day.  I like making money at auctioning stuff too. . . as much money as I can. . . but with a little decency and respect for others.

I'm picking up that shrinked Silver Anniversary set this week - I'm going to do a little advertising.

:evil:

Yep, I have an extra one or two. One is busted open; I put the L3 in with my other modules. I have another in shrink as a collection piece. I think I even have a third than came with a lot from another purchase. Might as well bust it up and sell, sell, sell. Of course, I will completely disclose what I am selling...  8)

One more thing, I actually just went and looked at the L3 auction (noted a few lines up). This guy is a weasel. That description has an element of truth, but just enough to protect him. Still, it is bullshit 8O
