"ships to United States"

I find that limits a lot of bidding and prices stay lower especially since the dollar's value sucks compared to other currency (ie euro, pound...).


You'll make some $$$ even with the damaged greyhawk (assuming you want to resell it). :)

Am I missing something here? Why did this auction go so cheap?  :?

** expired/removed eBay auction **


I had a fun surprise when I received this package in the mail.
I purchased this lot with the goal of acquiring a 1st print DMG but received an extra bonus when I realized that the PHB included was a "true 1st print".
The 2nd print MM and Deities & Demigods are also nice.

Cheers,
Curt

I don't think it is a real problem... I am always allowed by sellers to bid on their items. You just have to ask them kindly :)

"hello, I am really interested in this book and I am looking for it for a while. I know that you don't want to ship internationaly but I am a reliable buyer and have a Paypal account. Please do you accept my bid? Thank you very much. Best regards."

and the answer is always (except for some big sellers as Isoldit) "yes of course but postage will be expensive bla bla bla, if you pay for it, there is no problem"

that's all...

Here's a new one..

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dllViewItem&a ... 0023685066

Generic fantasy rpg system by ROC Enterprises, California 1979. Written by Russell and Laura Carleton, Illustrations by Eric Ramsey. The first book deals with the basics plus the warrior class. The second book deals with Wizards and Clerics.

I can't seem to find anything about these, so please feel free to chime in if you know something or have a copy...

...morevoer because of the seller...

...then i decided that this was simply an error made on listing the auction and nothing other...


** expired/removed eBay auction **

That is a Great Price, and one of Ed Greenwood's finest products.

someone had asked in this one if the map book was included with Temple of Elemental Evil.  It wasn't in the book, but i found it tucked into the Dungeon Master's Design Kit...

How, oh how, did this one fly under the radar?


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I'm mostly a reseller, so I didn't ever think I'd actually get to own these, even briefly. Wow, what a way to wake up in the morning! *grins*

I'm not going to be able to keep them (assuming everything goes well and I get them in the first place) - my wife would kill me. She's iffy enough on my Planescape collection, heh. But hey, I'll settle for a chance to read them now! Huzzah and stuff!

That's a great deal with free shipping to boot, especially considering they were pointed out here.  Maybe this is a trend along with the less than $1k Tsojconth that TSR items are undergoing a downward market correction.  Non-TSR, on the other hand, seems to be doing very well. Maybe most of us already have the "standard" rares such as the R series so there's less interest in them, while non-TSR fantasy D&D is the next step in collecting.
