You lucky lucky bastard!

And you didn't even have to ask for a BIN.

I, of course, would have let the seller know that they had undervalued the lots and offered more.  NOT! :wink:

I'm at work and just sh!t my pants.  That's incredible.  Has to be the best find I've ever seen.

What condition? Got pics? :D


Will sort some out. The books are quite nice. But the box is VERY tatty. With generous use of masking tape on every edge and corner. But at least its a box.


Mine lost all of its value because I covered it in clear contact paper.  I used to do that to protect everything I used.  Looks great, until you get close.


Regards,

Not such a big fun find, but still a good deal:

Monster Manual 1st printing from eBay UK. Condition is only VG-, but the errata is present and what can you expect for 10 GBP?  :D

Hey I am not the only one who scored some pretty awesome BINs from that seller. Reindeergamez did pretty good too. :wink:

===============================================

Just to add to my heap of recent ones, here is one that ended up being a fun find.:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

The reason this ended up being a fun find was because when I won this auction, I was already pretty stoked at winning 7 shrinked items for $42.00 total, but low and behold when the package arrived yesterday it contained 17 shrinkwrapped modules. 8O The seller never mentioned in his auction listing that there were multiple copies of each of the items shown in the pictures. Nice. 8)

You are lucky, those lots (which included the rpga's) were on my watch list when they first came out. Why didnt i buy them, because at that time there were no "buy it nows".

When I woke up the next day I saw the auctions were ended cause someone bought them with a "buy it now". :o

It's a fifth print in fine condition. Anyone else struggled to find really good copies of 4th,5th, and 6th print orange flyleafs? Before I got this one, I only had really crumby copies of each.
