I don't get it. That auction is still running and as a mater of fact I would have to guess that its going to get pretty heated here real quick.

I've got my tracking bid on it.  Maybe the fact that she's a zero-feedback seller will scare off the wiser^H^H^H^H more fearful collectors.

Maybe the auction is an April Fool's joke.

I suspect that you are right.  :wink:   I have a feeling Frank is trying to pull the wool over our eyes on this one. I find it a little coincidental that someone has all that stuff listed in one place who isn't a current collector.  That and the fact that the numbers on the 2 Monos conviently have there numbers covered up by other stuff so we don't know which ones they are a bit too convient.

BTW, it seems a little suspiciously random too.  Gee, all these super rare items, and oh yeah there is a EX1 and a Q1 to go with them too. Way too convient for me. :)

Yeah, but placing a bid for hundreds of dollars is too much risky fun for me.   :D  I am sure that it is a joke, but it's a joke in which everyone can participate.

(Unless it's not a joke, in which case my wife will kill me.)

Well, I think Frank's post was the indication on that, but I think he is not in on this alone.  I suspect that he has help on this one. :wink:

Oh and one other thing that just not fit at all in this auction: The coverless Jade Hare.  Even if someone was a hardcore collector years ago and was able to get the Holy Trinity modules and the White Box set with all the supps, etc. Where the hell did the Jade Hare come from??? Did he stop and then conveniently decide to mysteriously pick up a Jade Hare as well? I don't think so....

And if you were going to come up with a fake name, the least you could do is come up with something better than Elroy. What is this the Jetsons. :lol:

Of course it's Frank, because of what's missing.

I will say though, that no matter whose stuff that is, it is in really sweet condition. I am quite jealous. :)

  If this auction is a joke, I don't get it.  What's funny about a fake auction?  

  Before I read other people's comments I thought, "Hmmm.  This is food for the big dogs...and man is it coincidental that all of this stuff is in one person's collection."

  What's so funny?
