Almost as much, Jeff?

T1 (SW'd with slight spine creasing); $218
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8737492864

R1 (SW'd NM; "copy #1"); $213
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8732815590


:lol:  :lol:  :lol:

(erm, am I overdoing those LOL's? :oops:)

Or even less than his SW'd UK4, perhaps; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8726513652 ?

A worryingly sane $6 for that...

For some reason, I find that extremely funny. :D

I would've paid at least $6.50!

*nods and ups the bid to $7* :P
(my personal copy is well trashed... hey, but at least I got it back from the loan)


Half tempted by SW'd X8 (same seller) at $12, too; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8726515507

Definitely an indication the crazy "must have" SW competition is /extremely/ limited in scope.

Maybe I should throw a few up and pay for my Fazzle that way....

Maybe not, I'd probably only get $10 each...


Well, seeing those prices makes me glad I didnt even bother to put in snipes on them. :roll:


I may be a little guy out here in the D&D collecting universe but how are you supposed to get anything with crazy bids like this!  I wanted to get the mono White Plume Mountain to add to the collection but some dumb azz bid over $200 on it??????  I might have gone $60 or so and I thought that was crazy!  What is going on out there?  Is it just me or are people blowing thier retirement funds on D&D collectables?  Probably just me.   :?

Dont feel too bad, there is just absolutely no accounting for how stupid some people can be. :roll:   There will be others, many others being sold, and you should be able to get them for a somewhat reasonable price somewhere along the line. :wink:

That is a bit high, but the last time i saw the monos in shrink "properly" auctioned they hit around or over the $100 mark.

You guys need to remember that only a few people know what the rpgas are, but just about everyone knows "Tomb of Horrors" , "white Plume Mountain" etc. and the mono/pastels are the holy grails of those.

$810 for a shrinked Rahasia.  Is that in line?  I have a near mint Rahasia(not shrinked) but if I thought I could get $500 I would put it up for auction.  I just do not understand this.

I figure there has to be Saudi Oil money coming into this....it's the same guy bought up all those shrinked monos....I smell offshore gun dealers looking for clean discreet investment opportunities....then again, I had this idea that there are aliens at Roswell sitting around playing with mint ST1's and OB3's....

  Why did they bid up an old DM screen as high as $34.    :?

The North Koreans are almost certainly in on it...some sort of Manchuian Candidate scheme with a pre-programmed killer launching his plot by bidding up RPG prices.

    As for insane RPG bids...I am only a little guy, watching the big dogs fight, but it seems to me that the powerhouse bidding was started by members of a little-known internet cabal known by the crpytic acronym of ACAEUM.  Bastards!     :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

That's too much, but it's actually the closest-to-reality price of all his BINs.  All he has to do is wait for a guy with lots of money that doesn't recognize the concept of condition, though.
