Hmmm..........
Something wrong here, but I can't quite put my finger on it.....

Well, I wouldn't buy em, and you wouldn't buy em, but they do look nearly new.  Given the cost of new 3.5 books these days, it might not be that bad of a deal. :? There's at least a dozen hardcovers in there, and misc. other stuff.  Is it worth that much?  No.  Is it cheaper than the brick & mortar shops?  Yes.

The quick-minded Stephen figured it out. I certainly am not a proponent of 3Eeeeewwww, but I was referring to the blatant shilling.

I've been using the term for at least a year (in fact a Google search of "shillicious" points to my earlier post on Acaeum) :)

Main Entry: shill·i·cious
Pronunciation: shIl-'I-sh&s
Function: adjective
Etymology: Middle English, from Middle French, from Latin shelicere to shill
1. Greatly fraudulent or dishonest
2. Very suspect: "a shillicious auction";

- shill·i·cious·ly adverb
- shill·i·cious·ness noun

Like I said in the PS forum... wha?! It's not even a first print, not in shrink... not that, even if it were either of those, it should go for that much.

(OK, would rate it higher than R1, as noted, but... :?)


The others went "cheaper".


I just started doing some diggin based on the current auctions of R1-R4 that have now qualified based on our old friend tauglamorigus again(with a little help from me  :roll: ). When checking out this auction above and the other 3 auctions won by that lopez bidder, I looked into lopez's feedback. Amazingly enough there was no feedback left by either the bidder or the seller for those auctions. There was some feedback exchanged on a couple of other auctions, but none was left for the R series auctions. Becoming even more curious, I dug a little further and lo and behold both the seller and the bidder are both suprisingly enough from New York state. The more I think about it the more I have become convinced that those R-series auctions back in August were nothing but a big shill. :evil:

Do you think it will be a hit ?

Less common than US version 'the keep on the borderlands' (it is not too difficult  :D ), perhaps quite rare here (maybe only sold with the french first edition of the red box?) but only in a good state, not better...
