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.

Yeah, I've noticed his insane bid amounts. My hope sunk when I saw he'd placed a bit, though it was amusing (if not horrifying) to watch the bids rise that much in the last few minutes. One of my eBay friends refers to him as "the guy that won the lottery", and I'm starting to think that must be true.  :P He's thwarted me on many a Planescape mini auction. Grarr. (But I'm glad he wasn't around during the biggest part of my collecting!)

Well, maybe that auction will inspire some others to post some of that mini, and the prices will drop. (Unless fisher needs another pack... *insert theme from Jaws*)

I think this wins the oscar for "most informative description ever" - especially related to the amount of money requested!

Yea, I saw that last night too. :roll: Check out some of his other auctions, they are equally descriptive. Why even bother to put anything at all? I think my next round of auctions will simply say "stuff" with a $1000.00 opening bid, and "pay for it" in the payment section. What a feckin moron. :roll: :roll: :roll:

Same seller, different angle:

This one here ...

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 80187&rd=1

... is a re-list. I came across the original listing today while doing some research. Nothing like a $5 BIN for a GDQ1-7, huh? :wink:

Now I know I was out of the loop for nearly half a year...but I do not recall Dragon #1 going this high. I seem to remember them dwelling in the mid $200 range. I do think $300s is ok...but is this a pattern?

<quiltmom> just didn't want to be beat by that other seller and had just turned down Mike's better copy at a lower price.
Hence my comment 'bout having to snipe her for any early Dragons. Has been rather difficult to get a hold of those since she turned up. :roll:

Reserves were set high on those auctions, too; worked well for #1, but not #4 ($47 for a creased water-damaged copy, still hasn't hit reserve, with two hours to go).

I had this on my watch list, then was surprised to see it take off to the final sale amount.

Is this quiltmom familiar to anyone...

Seems a bit odd for dragons that have gone for around 20-30 now going for 40+???


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

Immortal Rules Box sets are certainly trending upwards over the last 3 or 4 months for some reason. :? I would not be suprised to see that if it jumped up over $50.00. :roll:

Very familiar (albeit not personally), hence my message at the end of
Interesting Items Formerly on eBay • Page 62 • Collecting General •  The Acaeum
re. that auction which just finished.

Unfortunately, someone "challenged" her and that was game over, in this case.

That's the <quiltmom> effect for you. Admittedly not single-handed; but a large factor, I reckon.

Numbers in the 20s have since been almost impossible to get a hold of, for "sensible money", hence my incredulity at comments that they're still readily available at $1 each! :P
As for the earlier issues (even the "easy" #7-12 range)...

I have just recently decided to put together a Dragon collection. That is where my sudden interest comes in to play.

Correction, I made a fluke, lucky purchase of about 150+ issues last fall (via ebay): numbers 54-210 (or so) complete run. I got the whole thing for around $75. The kicker was that they are all in near mint condition - don't look to have been touched for the most part. (I figured they were the standard used issues and I wanted them for reading material and nostalgia - not for a collection per se...

Anyway, when they showed up in such nice shape, I said, what the hell, might as well grab the pre #54 issues and call it a day, or maybe grab through to #250 for an even count. Then duty called and no ebay for me until just recently.

Now I come back and shit...pre #54 are nuts! I was prepared to drop around $400-500 to finish up...I guess that play is on its way out the window...
