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.

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)


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

Granted this is an Amazon auction, but still. 8O 8O 8O 8O



Best of Dragon Magazine I anyone?:

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

I'm missing issue 8 and either 21 or 22 whichever turns out to to the misprint, you never know when you need some to trade away though;) The condition of these looks quite good so worth the $$ especialy when you save on mulpile postage costs from the UK (an arm and a leg folks)...

This is the first time I have seen all the issues of Q&Q together, I have half of them so it would have been good to tick them off my list of wants, oh well... I think that there is a bit of runequest content in these as well, and I have found that RQ collectors can be even crazier than I. But at least out of all the world there are only 2 crazies out there that would bid this high;) I would of liked the DL's as well, but I'm afraid that the overall condition of the lot put me off... the obvious staple rust in the photos, the mildew description etc...

Once again the overall condition of these put me off, and I only need 2 of them listed, I couldn't justify the expense for the 2 when one of them ( 3) wasn't in very good condition... once agin condition is an important factor.. I'm just starting to get a bit fussier I suppose...



feel free to ping me if anyone has any zines/mags that they want to get rid of;)

I was worried about that too, but took a chance with a big bid on the DLs anyway because I've rarely seen them for auction, even though I only needed a few from this lot.  Needless to say, if anyone has DLs for sale please send me a PM.  I have most of the Q&Qs, but if anyone has one or two then...  :D

Or if anyone sees them on eBay for 99 pence apiece please, please let me know...  :wink:

Heya William! :)

"Big bid" is an understatement, IMHO. The DLs are amongst the easiest UK 'zines to obtain even though they were/are deservedly popular.



The first half dozen or so (as ever!) are rare enough and a copy of #1 went for silly money at a convention whilst DL was still running. (Wasn't recommended on a quality basis, however :P).



dathon wrote:Needless to say, if anyone has DLs for sale please send me a PM. I have most of the Q&Qs, but if anyone has one or two then... :D


*g*. I thought you told me you just had a large box of 'zines somewhere in storage, rather than "on hand".

Kinda gave me the impression you might be more willing to sell than buy (even though Brette and Mike<mdr003> (IIRC) didn't manage to obtain any more "positive sounds" from you). :)



I'm still looking to replace some other titles that were given away/went AWOL, as well as pick up those I never had... :(



dathon wrote:Or if anyone sees them on eBay for 99 pence apiece please, please let me know... :wink:


They were indeed!

Several of us agreed not to cross-bid on dups and ended up with copies falling flat at 99 pence through a couple of pounds for others. (One issue might've fetched £5-6 or so, IIRC).



*points also to previous thread about774.html * (and Mike's comments following).
