Are these modules always around $100?  I see them all the time and all the time the prices are extremely high.  Was this one of the most fun modules to play or something (I wasnt playing when this one was released)?

He tells all in his full description.  He collected those items.  All of them have shrinkwrap that has been slit open so he could browse the material.  They are not sealed nor are they new.

They are, however in mint condition with the remnants of the shrinkwrap still surrounding the item.

I'm sure people aren't seeing this info when they are bidding, all they see is in the shrink....


"When I first bought this module, I carefully slit the shrink-wrap across the bottom, slid the wrap off the top to gently look through the module. I then slid the wrap back down on the module, slipped it into a protective archival magazine bag, and put it in a file cabinet sandwiched between other modules."

Now this is what I do, hover I believe that this isn't being made clear enough... well at least I hope this is the case, otherwise I'll be contacting the third highest bidder;)

Well, Deadlord was using Jade Hares for toilet paper... he may want to rethink that now...  :D

I'm not a big fan of this "I slit open the top, read the module and then slid it back in," so it's still mint shrinkwrap.  It is not.  Near mint, yes, but it's not mint shrinkwrap.  
But at least he states the true condition in the listing if one takes the time to read it, which one should of course.  

What I'm getting tired of are sellers who say their item is mint or near mint and then they're anything but.  I recently won a boardgame where the seller explicitly states in the auction it has all unpainted figures.  And, yep, you guessed it, I receive the game and one of the minis is painted.  
Another seller said a big dragon mini was unpainted and near mint, and I get it and it's been primed.  Technically the seller is right it was not painted, but he should have stated that it was primed and not near mint.

C'mon, what's wrong with these sellers?  And I can't leave negative feedback because I don't want to risk retaliatory feedback since I sell sometimes too.  
Deadlord's right, maybe we should each have two accounts, one for selling and one for buying....

This Planescape lot seems to take off  :lol:



$650 and still going for 2 more days ...

It's a nice collection but still ...
or is there a hidden gem?

But actually, for 30 items, at $650 you still pay only $21/item, not that far from retail maybe, and if you're into Planescape and don't want to get all items separately...

I wouldnt say Planescape stuff is really rare, its just at the moment there are more buyers than items.

I just put a Planescape Campaign box set (opened but mint contents) up for $35.00 "buy it now" since I just purchased a new unopened one.  It lasted a whole 1.5 days before someone snatched it up.

Man, I'm a hair away from cashing in all but the playables. SOOOOO many newbays out there. Reminds me of when we used to go fishing at the hatchery at night. Didn't even have to bait the hook, the fish just jumped on the line.

I'm speechless, especially considering I bought this same item from this same seller one month ago for $16.49
This is totally perplexing.  
:?

I'd offer the "losing" bidder my box for "only" $250 but I'd feel guilty.  
It's just too weird...
