Ouch!  Two bidders in a very ferocious war.  No comment beyond that.

Same funny thing here:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5913363326

and

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5913363841

These two guys are fighting about some other items, too. Looks as if the 0-feedback bidder doesn't want to lose... Sure, the items are pretty nice, but tell them these Planescape boxes sell for < $30 usually ...  8O

Umm, I've got one of those that I bought used for about $5.  It was worth the price, as it unfortunately has water damage, but I didn't get it for collecting reasons.  Tell me though, I know this had like one printing and was pulled thanks to the ERB estate, but how valuable would a decent copy of this book truly be compared to the inflated price on ebay?

It's hard to say... I'm after a copy of Warriors of Mars, and I'm willing to pay in the region of $100-$120 for a copy in decent condition (doesn't have to be mint or NM... VGC will do me).



Because the book comes up rarely, it's impossible to say what it's really worth - to me, it's rare enough to be worth $120, but obviously there are at least two people who think it's worth three times that amount.



Regards



Mike

The last couple that sold on ebay went for $150-$200. They were both in better condition than the one currently up for bid.

This is so obviously a shill auction that my 3 year old would laugh if I showed him.

Yeah, especially as there's one with a starting bid of $0.99 on now...

You gotta be kidding me.  Sure, it's signed and all.  Either that or I really shouldn't have tossed the mint one I had a few years back... 8O

Were all of these signed?  I have one in the shrinkwrap and it's still signed.  I think they shipped them signed.  And doesn't this item usually go for $9 anyway?

Looking at the bid history, you can see that endzone04 pumped tosattearp all the way to $105.  Without endzone04, the item would have sold for about $7.

As far as I know, they are all signed. Mine is, and I've never seen one that wasn't.

It's very possible that I'm suffering from fuzzy memory, but I don't think mine was signed.  I picked it up cheap (~$5) several years back, and sold it cheaper when I needed rent money.

We have two copies, one signed & one not. They show up on Ebay fairly often.

WD #1 : $111 for a "Good" copy.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5915979105

More than starting to push credibility price-wise, IMHO. (*desists from saying "crazy"*).

"Good", not "Excellent", or "Mint"... Heh... If my eyes don't decieve me, this one's possibly a bit grubby, edgeworn, slightly wrinkled, corner creased/worn, etc...
Does it pay for a seller not to provide too large/good an illustrative pic? ;)
*
Personally, given a choice between that copy and my "second run" copy which is laminated and thus A1-crispy-mint in appearance, I'd stick with mine despite what a purist collector's grading schema might indicate.

=

Well; hopefully my copy of Wyrm's Footnotes #1 from the same vendor will prove to be better! (n.b. "Excellent", not "Good").
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5915375172
(and certainly much better value for money, I think, despite "pushing out the boat", yet again... Was never gonna be "cheap" and has been on my "wish list" for a long, long, long time).

-- And I could buy "hundreds" of "other" White Dwarfs for that kinda money. *lol*.

d.

More White Dwarves just completed.
Much better than the above copy of #1, but even more serious prices and competition.  Still just a "little bit" crazy, IMHO.
(Looks like WD has almost got The Dragon beat on price, just now ;))

(Gradings are my guesses, only)

#1 (NM): $164 (*six* last-minute snipe bids!)
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917221551

#2 (VG-EX? waterstain?): $56
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917220902

#3 (NM): $39 - that's your (relative) bargain, Michael.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917220643

#4 (NM): $83
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917220326

#5 (NM): $74 - still an "interesting" cover, even in 2004...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917218964

#6 (NM): $42
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917219890

#7 (G+?): $30 *cough* torn cover
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917219577

#8 (M): $30
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917219189

#9 (VG+?): $44 - Michael, are you sure you read the condition?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917220102

#10 (M): $41
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917218758

#11 (NM): $30
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5917218296

(must admit that sale slipped under my radar, too...)

(and whilst on WD; this one is crazy!)

#72 "Talisman Expansion In White Dwarf No.72 / 1985 RAR(E?)"

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5916234116

$40 & sold...  8O

(would they have paid more if it wasn't for that crease, I wonder?)
