I sold a batch of Encyclopedia Magicas myself earlier this year and it seems like I got around $70 for them.  (But I did start them at a buck and had a bit of a bidding war if I remember correctly)  =)

Frankly, given Creep's selling volume, I'm not surprised his shipping is slow. He's ran more auctions in the last month than most members have run in a year (or ever). Stupid move listing more than you can ship quickly, but an understandable one.

Did anyone else notice how the Greyhawk Suppliment is tucked further under the next book.   Suspicious? Paranoid?   Maybe, but with his documented history of "upgrading" books after he purchases them.   Call me crazy . . .  :)

Is it just me or do a couple of the modules that are meant to be in s/w in some kind of other plastic? I guess they could still be in s/w as well, but looks a little odd.



(the middle two on the lower row & the end two on both rows on the left for example seem to be a plastic that is far larger than the modules).


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

I mean...I'm happy to have gotten this much...in fact the guy's already paid...but geesh...these things are beat up...not even any dice or original paperwork...and not like they're in short supply...I was just hoping for $5.00.  :?:

Maybe not the most ridiculous price of the year, but I was sure suprised!

I think the bidder is a member. I can't remember all the different ebay names vs acaeum names. So I am not being offensive here, but this prices seems...err...a bit high for this lot.

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

Nope, he is not a member. :wink:  He is a reseller from Italy and yes I also thought that was very high for that lot. Considering there is 35 modules that are not even in that great of shape, not good.

I couldn't believe the final prices of those MM sets.  That guy cleaned up.  I was ready to pay in the neighborhood of $25 each.  Wow...guess I haven't bought any in awhile.

This guy actually makes me pretty mad, he's a reseller and his prices start pretty high. He snaps up a lot of Known World stuff in Europe & then tries to sell them off at high prices :(  (Check the BIN prices for his Gaz series)

Looks like creep's influence here.  I have thought about buying from this reseller several times because they have some really decent stuff, but I always back out because of the insane prices.

Just take a look at fishboy77's "about me" page.  Sounds like a raving lunatic to me.  :D

eBay



I really dislike people who sell photocopies of stuff, regardless if it's free or not.  Why not just put the files on CD-ROM like every other assclown.  :x

(best place to put this, even if it's not TSR)



TBH 1-15, 17-25; $257

eBay.com Item Bid History



A number of originals were going for $2-4 each some time back whereas most/all of the lower numbered copies in this bundle are reprints. Nice, perhaps, but maybe not quite that nice, IMHO.

(btw. Yes, I thought my bid was somewhat OTT as well. And I'd've been sure Brette had them all as well... Possibly bidding for the same reason I was??).



I do hope the seller finds #16. *fingers crossed*

(and more, post-TBH)



Q&Q 1-9; $304 (Brette, is it just one or two issues you're looking for, or what? :?:)

eBay.com Item Bid History



DL 3, 6-21; $272 (possibly the crazier price since virtually all of those have appeared at ~$5 each (several as low as 99 cents/pence) barring #3 which is "pretty beat", and possibly #6 & 7)

eBay.com Item Bid History

*

Hopefully the "mildew/moisture damage" on #18 & #21 isn't lurking on the other DLs and Q&Qs, if the former... :?

*points* Erm, Brette didn't win...



Code:
radford3770 (21)         US $303.99         Sep-18-05 00:01:13 PDT         

beasterbrook (276)         US $298.99         Sep-18-05 00:01:36 PDT        

beasterbrook (276)         US $222.22         Sep-18-05 00:01:15 PDT        

mdr003 (497) US $ 76.10 Sep-17-05 18:36:58 PDT




That's quite a jump; and I'd've thought Brette had most/all of those, already, judging by those numbers which have come up for sale.

If Brette's reckoning the others are "worth" $50 each, I'd be curious to know... ;)

No joke! Congrats. :D

(And I still say that RPGA3 was fairly priced for the BIN Image).





p.s. UK zines vs. US zines ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5241509054 = $3.75 each, even in a hyped series of auctions). No contest! :P
