7 day auction with a reserve.  Opening bid is $0.01.  Check out the Buy it Now price.    I believe the game emporium has "kicked it up a notch" so to speak  8O .


The auction states :

AD&D L2 * THE ASSASSINS KNOT * RARE & MINT!!
VERY RARE AD&D 1ST ED * GREYHAWK * ADVENTURE MODULE....STILL IN THE SHRINK WRAP!!!!!

Looks pretty deceptive to me - almost like it was a mistake to put the L2 line in there.  I don't know of any L3's that were in SW.  Unless he's selling the whole box in SW...

I believe that is key-word spamming.  I think the seller figures if you are looking for L3, you might also be looking for a Shrink L2.

Or, they just made a mistake as they state they are offering L1 and L2 also.  At least they didn't say L3 had a cardboard header!   :)

Some funny shit from Germany: A Greyhawk Folio "missing it's guidebook" for $50 starting bid, because "hey, it's a classic":

Rant mode on...........what the HELL is it lately, with these freak resellers labeling everything as "RARE" just to make an extra buck...........rant mode off.

AD&D * THE STAR OF KOLHAPUR * EXTREMELY RARE MODULE!
ULTRA RARE *RPGA ONLY MODULE* ONLY 5,000 OR SO PRINTED!
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... egory=2545

Got two of 'em sitting on the shelf I bought at the used book store a couple weeks ago.  Must have been a lucky find, I guess  :roll:.

Ok let me get this right, after I pay $30,000 for this artwork, the seller also expects me to fork over an additional $25 bucks for shipping?  You'd think that he would eat the shipping cost :)  

But on the other hand I guess if you have that much money to blow on artwork, another $25 is chump change.

Just noticed too that if you live in Texas you pay $2,175 in tax as well....ouch!

At least the seller proudly states "No reserve!" in the auction!  Bargain!

This is the second time someone has posted a link to this item.  I think the first time the ebayer was asking only 24k for it.  They have a bunch of other original art listed that I seem to recall being half of what they are asking for it now.  I guess if it doesn't sell the first time, increase the price 6k and hope it sells again.

The real funny thing is that I have seen several of these sell recently for over $200.

Wow!  You would think this was good, or rare...  Maybe the attractive female on the cover?

well the buyer is from Down Under.

All that time they spend upside down causes

a) their hair to fall out :-)
b) them to have more money than sense

Mind you if they can flog wool to the French for $1 million a bale i guess they can afford it.

Well the aussie dollar has apreciated against the US$ by about 40%, in the past 10 odd months, but still this is a good price, maybe prices are really going up for the SW items, I was only thinking about this yesterday that these modules are now 20 odd years old! and I remember them when they first came out, is it just me or am I getting older.....
