Dathon, I thought you said you quit collecting Licensed TSR material???

Rhea is making good money there and all because it's shrinkwrapped. The items from Rhea's current auctions are all in a very good shape. Quite ideal.


Woh... the last time I saw this on ebay it didn't sell for $19.95... Rhea is not getting good $$ he's getting great $$

He's getting a good 'buzz' from his auction... He'll get some Frenzy bidding.

Personally.. I think this is GREAT!  Good for him... Good for 'Collector's who have wives who wonder why we collect stuff we don't actually play with', good for the hobby etc..

Go Rhea! Go!

Rhea's auctions are a blast, I'm having a great time going through them and winning and losing on items.  He's getting great end bids for a few reasons.  First, we know him and like him, and that goodwill translates into more bids.  Second, the stuff is in excellent condition, if not, amazing condition.  Third, there's so much of it that you can win multiple items and then save on shipping costs.  All good fun!  

As for miniatures collecting, I think this area of the hobby has really taken off in the past few years.  Grenadier gold box sets are getting amazing prices compared to 10 years ago.  Old Ral Partha is also doing very well.  I think the most valuable item in my collection is potentially my "solid gold" Grenadier wizard that was advertised as a contest in Dragon magazine back in the issue 50's range if I remember correctly.  I've never heard of anyone else having one and have never seen one come up for sale or auction yet.  Someone please correct if I'm wrong, and then my gold wizard won't feel so special anymore.   :wink:
As an aside, I detest plastic miniatures.  I've been collecting all the recent Games Workshop LotR miniatures but never buy the plastic.  I can't game with plastic and metal minis side by side.  The plastic ones just look like wimps compared to the metal.  Ditto for the cardboard heroes and tokens.  The Dwarven Forge products are amazing when combined with well-painted metal minis.  Just wow...
Any other old Grenadier/Partha fantasy minis collectors out there?

I've collected them in the past.  Once in a while now to upgrade.

Large Collection of Dungeons & Dragons Books

Not really sure if this is a joke or not  :? .  7 day auction with a reserve, opening bid of $450.00  8O .  Possibly an extra zero in there?

No joke - he wants $250.00 for 4 Shadowrun books (and there's a Reserve!)  

I guess he's heard that anyone can make money with this eBay thing. . .

OK, this isn't such a ridiculous starting price as the module is decribed as VGC.  But have you seen the state of the module in the image  8O ?

If it is the actual item then he's got to be having a laugh.  I think the original owner must have been into origami  :? .

have to totally agree with that, shipping costs are a big thing for me, don't mind paying over the odds when I can get a lot, but there is a point when i have to stop.. 8O

Looks like the spine is ripped a good 2-3inches  hence the fold on the left, missing (and photocoppied) countersheet.. I don't know about you but this so far from my grading of VGC, in my opinion Very poor because of the missing peices, poor if it had the origional... i sometimes think i grade much too hard, but this.. well a picture is worth a thousand word, I suppose everyone can be thnkful that he now uses pics..

We were out-of-town so we had to bid early on Rhea's items.
It does look like Pittbull is rich (or he is like my brother and I and lives check to check, spending every spare cent on D&D). I bid what we were willing to pay and no more. As most know on this board, I am a sniper and this eliminates people being able to bid me up, but you are more than welcome to bid up Pittbull.  : :wink:  
 
BTW: I have some shrink items I will be listing shortly, incuding a Wilderness w/Wild Things MIS(last one sold for $160), Greyhawk Ruins MIS, 10th Anniversary Bonus Packs, Trail Maps, GAZ11, GAZ12, and GAZ 13, etc..

Peace,
Burnt

Since pitttbull is a member on this board and surely reading all these posts about him, why not come out and let us know your opinion, pitttbull? If you don't want to, I respect that, of course. I am sure you have a very good reason for buying what you buy. It would be interesting to know.

It looks like pitttbulll is a sniper too from what I've seen.  
Unfortunately he didn't snipe in any of my auctions that ended last night.  
:cry:

I think it's still OK. I would say a set of Encyclopedia Magica is worth ~ $75. Considering this, $100 should be the upper limit in case you really want it. If you have time, wait and get one for half the price.

Now that's a Sweet deal. . . I paid $2.95 for the shrinkwrap alone!  

Minus the price tag to be sold in another auction. . . Hope I get it. :wink:

People who break up complete box sets to sell the components seperately should be thrown off ebay.
