I knew the article was not serious. I did not look up any of the User IDs. Interesting though that they used an actual ID and not just a mde up one. Guess maybe they had to for liability or something.

I thought I'd go for the complete set of R's & RPGA (even though I have the R's already), as I'd hopefully be able to upgrade the condition of some and partially complete the set overall (excluding the really rare ones).



I worked on the average of them overall (excluding the Poly's) and went from there.



I'm happy with the end price I paid, and given the end price of the individual ones I think I've had a win.



Plus for once It finished at a reasonable hour here and I was able to log on without falling asleep.. :D  :D



Now to just receive them......I can post on their condition when I get 'em.



$800 for the one, too rich for me, but looked like a stunning copy from the pics.

*fingers crossed*

Yeah, is also a plus re. combined shipping to Oz. Make sure they're double boxed and then some, this time of year ;)

Best not to use that to compare with anything, IMO! :P

(Just like many of the others were not really comparable owing to "TSR file copy #1" and similar provenance: was worth a premium to me, anyhow, albeit not a $450-500 premium! *lol*).

No-one loves RPGA4 it seems... :(



Thanks for steering clear of R1, Jeff. Am feeling pretty happy about that one, still, which I would've doubted for /any/ copy of that mod at that price a year ago.

Had better pay up, now... ;)

This really isn't a silly auction price but reading his descriptive text is like reading a dry tech manual. It puts you to sleep and if you're not careful you'll be burned.

Budget is a little lower than 4K, still very nice copies and both of them will not go cheap.

You know, I think that they should make a law against dropping acid and then listing auctions on EBay:

This belongs in the thread simply because I'm quite sure none of the other bidders knew what they were bidding on...

Hint:  It's not a 5th printing...if only I had 100 pounds or more to burn. :(
