Here it is. I am pretty sure this actually TOPS the $1000 Deities & Demigods, and no I am not kidding either:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 2&rd=1

8O :roll:

Nothing like overvaluing your collection by at least $1100. :roll: Anybody see whitednd around. :twisted:

Sheesh, that's pretty bad. :(
Worth trying to talk some sense into them first, to see whether they're sensible enough to go "oh, stupid me; I meant $120!" and try to get their listing fee back? And even then.... *shrugs*
Newbie. :?

One before that sold for $88, so maybe the bidder thought he was getting a deal, especially since this copy is cut up to pieces!!!!!

Looks like the same thing happened as when that grenadier giant sold for $300.

Buyer one wont be around for the end of the auction and puts a ridiculously high bid in figuring no one will challenege it.

Newbie comes along and tests the waters and thinks its a blast upping the price.

Buyer one is screwed.  :?

Sorry, it's not D&D, but I couldn't pass this one up:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 95202&rd=1

Ah, toast and the Runaway Bride ... who could resist placing a bid? Especially when a mere $16,000 will get you into the game ...

There is no limit to some people's capacity for stupidity (although something tells me there aren't a lot of serious bids here). Also, in a situation like this, you've got to ask yourself: is this joke really worth the final-value fees?

So as to not be completely off-topic, I'll throw this out: just think of the D&D collection you could put together with $16,000.

Ok, preaching to the choir again, but old != rare != valuable.  Or should I start hording these things?  :roll:

p.s. Looks like that one worked out OK in the end, fluffs.

Seller reduced their start price a second time and ended up with $103.

$150 BIN gets you a 4th- set with a few early and first print supplements... or else, if you're less lucky (or D&D savvy), this;

There are just TOO many stupid people in this world.  Anyone want in on this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 79508&rd=1

Dungeon Master Screen (7th or 8th print) can be yours!!!! All you need to do is put in a bid of at least $32.00. :roll:

8O  :roll:  Yikes!!

He said he'd been looking for one forever :?
I was more than happy to oblige :wink:

I guess I'm not too surprised by the price on those screens. They were bound to get more expensive as less of them are available as time passes. That particular set is in demand since it consists of the best 1st edition screens TSR put out in my opinion. It consists of an outer cover that has all the various stats for each character class, a players screen, and a dungeon masters screen.

Now, if I can just find someone dying to have an Orange Silver Princess ...
