WD#3 with "two splints (sic) on the spine from been (sic) in the WD folders... [and] a small (sic) black paint smudge by the 'H' of white"
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5194124313
$80 (*erf*)

Erm, good luck with #1 & 5, Ian: those binders are hellish... :?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5194124810
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5194123289

Talking of WD binders, the seven alone ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5194141522 , etc. ) sold for almost an identical sum to the binders plus WD #1-280/300, together, first time around.
Is a strange world, sometimes... :)

It isn't one that you can declare and guarantee a $1,000+ offer, however.
If that's what you were meaning, Stephen?

Most of the copies around are in excellent condition and shrinkwrapped, too, so there isn't as much competition over the "best copy" which might have pushed the (apparent) market higher.
I know that I'm not the one person willing to pay out $700-750 for a nice, non-shrinked copy, but beyond that there are only a small number who would pay the extra for the SW (and quite possibly all of those have copies, at present).

And, of course, the reprinted version's a lot cheaper...

JM-02 cents as usual...

From the same seller:

Item has a $24.99 suggested price and is currently available on Amazon for $16.49. For a limited time only, though, it can be yours for $40 ...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

And when you send in your payment, don't forget that $10 media mail shipping charge.

What a moron.

$350 BIN OCE, anyone :?:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5198774433
(starts at $250 otherwise, if that's any better...?)

oh, and is US only, too. Seller is OK to ship many of their books internationally, but apparently the box set won't fit in a 747.

Or if you would rather, you have the chance to own a piece of gaming history:

Me personally of course, would rather go this route in the whole owning of gamining history thing. :wink:

8O Another one?  It wasn't that long ago we were commenting on $120 being on the high side.  This pattern is cycling out of control:

1.  Seller A lists item.  (Might even be at a reasonable price!)
2.  Rapid bidder A bids too high.
3.  Seller B see this action and list their copies too high.
4.  Rapid bidder B bids much too high.
5.  Rinse and repeat.

Another here, 5 hours to go:
cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&a ... T&rd=1

I mean, good luck if you're selling guys  :) , but I wouldn't recommend getting caught up in the hype.  There will be a market "correction" at some point, probably soon.  That's my magic eightball prediction.

I'd be happy if someone would offer Paul $750.00 for it.

There is just a lot of stuff on the market right now, so I'm waiting on the market.

If I thought I could have sold it myself, I'd have done it, and if I were a collector I'd be out there on the current auction, princesses can always  wait.  Though, if someone feels differently, I won't stop you ;)

A foolish buyer is likely to be irritated afterwards, so I'll skip on those.


Regards,



Stephen

BIN is only five dollars.   Shipping costs:         US $3.85

I'm tempted.  Especially if there are two with BINs of 25.00 each.  Looks like they've skipped a decimal place, and on shipping too.


Regards,



Stephen

looking at the other auctions from this seller - looks like jonb's inherited storage shed or whatever needs topping up!

Well considering the winner of that auction also paid $450.00 for a Warriors of Mars, maybe not. :roll: :wink:
=========================================
Oh, and did I mention he also has a 96% feedback rating. 8O

Yes, but that sort of bidding is pretty common for the Fish, he covets those planescape mini's and will pay almost anything for certain blisters. That's the first time I've seen that particular blister on ebay, not very common, but still.... 8O

You TSR guys have the Cougar, us Ral Partha hooligans got the Fish. :P :? :cry:

I deleted the link, but yesterday a loose 11-065 went for $51... anyone see it? Are miniatures the flavor of the month or what? :lol:

I was watching this one and preparing a $50.00 bid, blown out on that one.  This is a very rare pack but as Ekim Toor saoid, if the fish wants it he gets it.  He drives up prices on these mini packs to ridiculous levels.  As an aside, the seller has another one up for auction now.
