take a look at the bid history, momb1 & bigbill12345 got into a bidding war over this thing.  momb1 has an excuse for paying that much, if you look at his feedback he generally deals with comic books, not D&D items. bigbill12345 however has no excuse.  he's made several recent purchases at very good prices (Fiend Folio @ $2.75, Monster Manual @ $2.50, A1 A2 U1 U2 & L1 @ 14.15 total).  I have no clue why he followed the auction up that high.

This is by far the most descriptive auction I've ever seen..........

i'm tempted to bid just to find out what it is, most likely a beat up old palyers guide or something...

I think he wanted a seven day auction ending on sunday, but didn't have enough time entering all the details. I see this all the time when it's free listing day on eBay Germany.

My favorite item description so far is "."  Concise, simple, and to the point.  And who can argue with that?
:P

I was watching that one earlier when the cougar first put his nose in.
Kinda predictable what's happening, there (and will be surprised if he gets burned).

Yep, I did the math on that one early on. No where near that total... 8O

There are some nice modules that generally go for good bucks, but you could buy every one of those separately pay separate shipping for less than $330. 8O


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I'm guessing my highly aggressive snipe of $165 is not going to be admitted.

What the hell?  That's over $20.00 an item. . .   (take a look at the bid history).

Again I say!  What is going on here?  (bid history).  Even at $15.00 each it doesn't break even. . . .

I just took another hard look at this one.  

If you are a reseller, no way. Yes, you can get $20-35 for a few of those items, assuming they are mint.

If you are a collector...it is a tough call...If the condition is as advertised, it might be worth it. You can grab a bunch of modules that generally go for higher prices...It is high, but not so much so that someone who doesn't want to hunt for a year might make a stab.

The other auctions (Same seller) was crazy. Those modules simply are not worth the price...no way...no how....


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
