AMAZING UNIQUE D D MYSTARA GAZETTEER LOT OOP | eBay

Someone is taking cues from Creep's auctions.  Ridiculous BIN.  Not a complete set.  No real idea about the quality of the items other than what the seller states.  Over $30 for each item listed and who the hell knows what the shipping cost will be?

I really hate this selling trend.

Dungeons Dragons Advanced total of 7 books | eBay

This one is even better.  No ridiculous BIN just a ridiculous starting price.

Anyone interested in a DMG that looks like someone used as floor mat for their house? It will only cost you at least $22.00:

Those regularly sold at ~$10-15 in good condition over here last year. I noted at least one, in passing, and it failed to attract any interest...

$225 with 30 minutes to go. :lol:

That newbie bidder sure has expensive tastes... :D

Higher than my snipe... :oops:

Think I'll spend it on that coverless PotVQ instead. *jk*
(Good guess on the bidding, btw, Brian!)

I thought so, too! ;)

Well, I don't know whether that latest one was a genuine sale or not, but I'd sure like to know whether it gets entered into the realisations (/"valuation") database.

Pretty sure it would, but we tend to focus on the rares.  I don't think that a late print folio is going to get updated very often.  ;)  But if we start discriminating against crazy bidders, that quickly becomes an extremely fine line. *cough* ST1 *cough*  :lol:

I can understand private sales not being included but to exclude any of the eBay sales no matter how silly would skew the figures in a false direction rather than the direction the market has taken.
