This sometimes goes for up to $20 for the single sheet, so price-wise you did OK.  They were available from Noble Knight, though, for something like $3 or $5 IIRC.

just checked and found it on noble knight for $3.  well, i'm glad i didn't get completly ripped off, since it can go for more, even though i could have had it for $3...  oh well, at least i have one now, thanks for the info.

Hrmm... where is everyone?

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5925011042
4th- white box (VG+?; books, EX?) with a Greyhawk thrown in for $82.
Have seen equivalent OCEs going for $20-30+ more than that, recently.

It's the box I want, really... At last, one that's not too badly smashed
up! 8)


(Oh, and I guess I'd better not mention that copy of Seren; tho' that
cost me...  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5925066355
Looking forward to reading what all the fuss is about :))

Trust me, harami, I noticed :D  You've gotten a few times in the past few months :D :D

Do let us know what you think of this book---I love Moldvay's work, and would love to hear that this is worth the $35-50 it's going to cost me to pick it up one day ;)

Empire of the Petal Throne, $27.65.  I believe it's a TSR 1975 near mint complete 1st-2nd print, but not certain.  I'll check it out when it arrives.

Thought I made out.

Didn't last long. Guy is now no longer ebay registered and I still don't have module. Hasn't responded to emails. Ebay says he has been removed (or left on his own accord) and they will not give details. I do have the phone number he left on his profile. Guess I'll give it try tomorrow, but it probably is useless...damn.

Gonna see if Paypal will help out, but I doubt it.


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

Not hugely collectable in this form.  But a very good price I thought.

Cute ^^
(Have seen a few other similar licenses, but not that one)

And here was me looking at a different Black Dragon no more than a minute or two ago...

If you're gonna point out a Nanorien Stones without a Folder, the least you can do is point out mine with a folder.  :)

*blinks; checking again...*.

A rare seller who severely understated the condition of their sale items. Even more than I'd expected, given the pics.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5925003507

The PHB (1st print) isn't "good", it's near-as-dammit mint.
A few small flaws from the printing process and a couple of miniscule creases on the cover from when the book was opened (once or twice ever, perhaps?).
Interior, perfect. Unread, no name, nothing...

The MM (3rd print) would almost have been better, were it not for the (unmentioned, but observed) sauce stain on the cover. Have only managed to reduce this in effect, not remove it, alas. (Crying shame, that...).

=

(Thanks for the PM afterwards, <Deimos>. Much appreciated, even if overly generous!
Do you really need copies, or was it just /those/ ones that caught your eyes? Very good spot, if so...).

I gotta admit, that snipe really stung.  I thought that one had managed to avoid the notice/desire of everyone else.  It wasn't immediately obvious that they were soft covers.  (I do need a soft cover PHB, but at the moment my bidding is on hiatus until I determine just how poor I am, I just bought a house!).  I assume the DMG and blue rulebook are nothing special?
