Damn, now I am curious. I was going to eBay my basically complete run, but it might be better to break them up, so people needing to fill in holes can do so.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

<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).


In this case, the bidder is determined to collect early Dragon magaznes regardless of the price.  QM has bought many early issues from me and (I feel) paid premium price, or at least the prices I wanted.  
  Funny thing is I offered her my copy of Dragon #1 a month ago for $285, but she felt it was too high. However, it was in better shape than the one that she just bought for $325.  I think this has something to do with the fact that I finally sold that copy out of my ebay store (for $255, I discounted it for the wife of a American soldier, I hope the buyer wasn't just feeding me a line....)...it was being watched by a few people, maybe Quiltmom was one and decided after mine sold to jump on that other copy while she could....
 Funny thing is, I just put my OTHER copy for sale, and it's MUCH nicer than the one she just bought.  It's out there for $285, any investors, err, takers????? :D

I dont' know if it's the Quiltmom effect, but prices on older Dragons and SRs seemsto be rising lately. All these were in various conditions, for the most part Very Good/Excellent (above average) shape. My recent early Dragon sales (since April):

Strategic Review:
#3---$30
#4---$30
#7---$30

Dragon #1---$255
Dragon #2---$100
Dragon #2---$30 (damaged)
Dragon #3---$100
Dragon #6 (x2)---$35 each
Dragon #7---$30
Dragon #8---$30

Those prices in Toymom's auction don't look very bad now, do they???? It remains to be seen if this is a legit trend or just the effect of 2-3 people wanting to finish up their collections with deep pockets fighting it out. Nevertheless should be interesting to see what Toymom gets for the #1-#8 she is auctioning right now...

I just sold #15 for $5.50:

cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&a ... T&rd=1
I'm sure it would have gone for more had the condition been better.  However, it went to a well-known reseller, so I'm certain these are going up in value.  I just wanted the thing out of my house, so I was happy to take the $5.50 and run.  :wink:

Hey, Deimos! :)
I was going to mention you yesterday as being one of the few people who hadn't "benefited", but then I noticed the buyer and some of your other auction prices from that same bundle and decided that kinda evened out, all told.
Yeah, certainly not the highest $ though...

Need a partial collection of 1993 collectors cards? Well it will only cost $1400.00 if you are interested. 8O 8O 8O

I don't think it's money laundering.  I think it's "stupidity laundering".  The sellers know these prices are crazy, and want to protect the ID of the foolish bidders (if any) so that good folks like us can't warn them. ;)

What, no takers yet? I can't believe the deal everyone is seemingly passing up. :roll:

BTW, I think that seller could also be listed in the shady sellers thread.  Not only is this stupid ass auction listed as private, but look at the sellers feedback and some of the "auctions" that he has been buying and selling. :wink:

I had #22 go unsold at $5.00 (not the best condition)

I'll group it with the #15 and see how they do together...quiltmom or stephen may be interested!

Maybe I could tell that in italy prices are different ...
maybe I could tell that I need that item ...
But the truth, the real truth, is: I'm stupid  :?  :?  :?
what can I do??
if you are sellers, keep notice of this fact!  :)

Careful with that wink; the buyer's on the board (Giorgio/<radagast>).

[edit] too late!

Hiya, Giorgio... Are you still needing 1st prints of the supplements, or are you happy enough with those?
(still got you email to answer: thanks :))

Thank you! :D

I definitely have a "spare" Blackmoor lying around, somewhere. Certainly no later than a second print; possibly a first.
Will have a look, later, if you're interested in a free copy?

(Beats getting "taken" for another $100+ sale, anyhow).

I'm always interested :D .
Seriously, I'm bidding on a copy of supplement II ... (and think that only saturday I've bought a copy of the four supplements from Sotteraneo) ... I start to be worried by my craziness!  :?
BTW, if you have something to sell ... you know I'm here :wink:
(the only problem is that I've not got the Neverending Money!!  :roll: )

ah, I see;
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5199445496

Is "only" a Wizard logo copy, but doesn't look too bad. (Hopefully the scan being trimmed isn't hiding anything).

OK; let me know if you don't win that one, if I forget to check later...

Know that feeling well! :P

What is this "sell" business, though? ;)
