Looks like a nice copy ... but, $30?  8O

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... egory=2545

I also find it, uh, "interesting" that the high bidder is the high bidder in five of this guy's auctions, all for overpriced ADD-1 hardbacks. Hard to believe, when with the smallest of efforts, he could be bidding on the same items for one-sixth the price.

I've stayed away from some of the recent shilling debates here, but this one's got me thinking. Then again, maybe he's just not doing any research at all.

Although, as a quick follow-up, I will admit the condition looks pretty good on these books.

Still ... $30 opening bids? One buyer? I don't know ...  :?:

sheesh... $108 for a tatty 3rd print Gamma World.
That's not even funny :(

*flags as candidate for "silly price" award*. Good spot on that, <red_dawn>.

($10 for a nice 2nd print set was more like it...

Did they even have counters in 1st Edition Gamma World?  Makes me wonder, considering my own copy DOESN'T, and I've never seen a copy which did.

I don't have any counters in my set and I'm pretty sure it's complete.

You know in the hands of any other seller that L3 sells for barely $30.  Dark's got the magic touch with them somehow.  The last one he bought for $10 sold for $80+. This one is well on its way to match that too.

Whats your ancient chinese secret?

eBay listings

Appears this guy lives near Nagasaki. Radiation might account for the pricing.

£250 for DL1-DL16?  Very optimistic.

You're far too kind. That's a mind-numbingly stupid price for that lot.

The seller registered yesterday, presumably after hearing a get-rich-quick-on-eBay tale from a friend. His lack of feedback history and non-use of PayPal will also keep a certain percentage of potential buyers away.

It's too bad, too, because it is a nice lot of DL stuff. But the price will have to come way down before he sees a single bid.

Probably forgot the decimal point, £2.50 makes a good starting bid...

Hey, I got my reply back!

Dear eyeamgawd,

You asked:
"Is this the super-duper ultra rare version?"

Yes Its the old 1st print cover art not originally released with the Expert boxed set.

Jesus, what a blockhead...................

this is an interesting tactic, a BIN of $0.01, but the shipping is $7.99....
