*chuckles*. So much for all those hours spent getting things ready for yer kid, John... ;)



Item Revision Details



Nah, was just getting some practice in so thought I'd take the tack of being the underbidder for the previous one which went for £25 ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 4070841193 ) to see where that went. Was a "fair" price in that context, I think.



(Not as though we're talking about a 1st Chainmail for £30, is it? :P)



Oh well, obviously impossible to do anything in "secret" around here! :D

Another one which got away (to an Acaeum member)



http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5959919308



These don't seem to come up very often.  Although a quick look at the thumnail image often means mistaking it for a common or garden red basic book rather than a 5th UK print:

Actually, I had my eyes on that and forgot about it because I was putting up my own stupid auctions :evil: .

I am unsure how impressive this really was, but I picked up some earlier mags including many that I did not have....

*nods*. Listed that one on the "interesting items" thread with a comment about the JG "value pack".

Some fairly decent Dragons in there. Was the condition as good as it appeared?



(And did you manage to do a deal on the shipping?)

:wink: Yep...shipping was only $10 and nicely done.



I would guess that none of the books were read. I peered inside and everything is intact with no writing/markings. The spines were TIGHT!!! I doubt they were even openend. A few are in shrink and some of the Dragons were in plastic baggies....



I would grade them from NM to VG at the lowest....   :D

hey John/Dave



that PHB softcover came today - damn nice condition all told! bar for that tear at the top of the spine, which believe it or not, isnt actually as bad as it looks! the spine is very tight, the cover pretty smooth and bar for the slight musty smell from his storage, the book is great!



very pleased with it!



actually got a bargain for a change - not playing it up to much tho - running with this while i am on a roll :)

Woo! Just received a near mint* set of TRACTICS rules! The seller wasn't originally including the pullout sheets (which are sorta necessary to play the game), but the day before the set arrived, an envelope with all 25 pullouts came. The box came today.



*the books and pullouts were all in mint condition but three of the box corners were ripped.

I wanted to wait until I got this one to post it. Condition was amazingly good. Might want to add their spelling as a search. Having seen it in person now I can see how someone who might not know could make that mistake.

*blinks*. wow....
How not to sell rare items.

Noticed they've still got a few nice items (goodness knows how/where they store everything!), but an almost random pricing structure.
$40 for a stomped-on(?) Wizard Blackmoor?
