Fiend Folio: Dungeons & Dragons | eBay


I was looking at some of the stuff you guys and gals are listing and wondering in amazement as well.  What really struck me was how many times people list things in Near Mint condition when their own pictures tell a whole different story, even when they try to hide it.  Take for instance the Fiend Folio above.

Scuffed and scratched ridges of the lower, and most likely upper, cover.  Obvious scuffing on the front lower right side in the black area of the cover.  The upper left corner is hidden well but if you look closely you can see the white indication of some damage.  The corners are bumped and bent in.  It makes you wonder what isnt being shown.

If I am paying $60 for a FF the dam thing better look, smell, and feel hot enough that I actually believe it just fell off the press.


Okay, I can't help but ask, but what exactly is a "potato wedger"? - bclarkie

For $60, it better be the rare "Friend Folio" I keep hearing about but have never seen...

Its too bad there is no subsection under every sale where you can leave notes like..."If you buy this book you should be forced to go pheasant hunting with Cheney!"

hehehe

That "never played" R4 is possibly going to end up back over the original BIN price

$233 with 8 hours to go... :?

I know it is a big lot and the dollar amount works out to be $3 each or so but when you factor in shipping and condition of a good portion of the items one has to ask what they are thinking. I have my thoughts on the matter but will not say in an open forum....

Yeah. I killed the BIN. I wanted the sets but did not want to spend $50. So I killed the BIN and then by the time it was clase to closing it was over that already. Why is what I can't figure out. I am thinking the seller should give me a kickback for being greedy.

:lol:

I know that trick well, having killed the $450 BIN on Burnie Bros's 2nd Chainmail within the first minute of the auction only to see it go to Paul for $700+.
Some things don't work out quite as planned, do they? ;)

(Mind you, I thought $450 was somewhat "over", whereas $50 for those ain't too bad, IMHO... But not what they closed at!).

Better luck next time...

$50 probably was an ok price. I was only after the Immortal set though. I have seen the other two sets for for nothing. The Immortal was the only real item for me in the auction...well we roll the dice and we take our chances. The seller has to be happy.

Ya gotta admit I was almost too quick to kill that BIN! :o
Was almost certain you were going to follow the GenCon price, too, when I was waiting for the start.

Oh well... :P

Yep, that's the truth... Strange, isn't it?

Will stick with my own slightly beat-up box rather than fork out $50+, I guess.
