With shipping it became a little less attractive but still a pretty good deal I would have to think. Added bonus was that I got it and kept them away from everybodies favorite cat from that area of the world.

   Yup, if they decide not to treat you, you can die in public.   :x

Heh. It's illegal for a hospital to refuse emergency service in both the US and Canada. Not sure about the UK, but probably there too.

Not terribly rare but I was rooting through the back room of a local charity shop (Many,many visits to all of the shops locally ensure that I can do this - some even phone me if they get stuff they think I might be interested in!!) when I came across a still sealed Dragon Magazine Archive - perfect condition and mine for the princely sum of £3.00!!

(as an aside the next shop had a well loved 2nd ed PH for £10 - I barely managed to resist the temptation!

It's the little things in life that count.

Talking about "little things", couldn't get much smaller than $3 for a reasonable looking 3rd PHB; as was listed on the "interesting items" thread, IIRC.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5234956799

(Need this to compare with the recently-discovered 3rd+ print).



Should make a bit of a dent in the previous stated increase on the Acaeum valuations page, too ($30 for VG)...





(Apologies, <Winterwords>, and thanks for the kind PM).

Nice looking win.  I had that and his MM on my watch list.  Nice to pick up both if he combines the P&P.  Still not that bad if he doesn't.  Didn't bother with a snipe as I thought there would be enough interest to take them over £5.

And he had these lying around: Vol II - 7, 8 & 9 for an additional $12.00 (total)



Also picked up from the same seller:

Hi Brendon -



Man, that's a fantastic pickup. Now I see why you didn't need issues 1 & 3 on our deal from last week!



Regards



Mike
