Is it a 1st or 2nd printing? i.e. is the rear cover blue or silver?

They look very familiar. I think I might have used some in my playing days. Could they be GW post TSR license?


It's a 1st, with a blue (almost black) rear cover. No perforated sheet present, and really beat up with lots of writing. I don't have a 1st US, but I will be comparing it to my 2nd US printing. I already completed the poll last year with "none", but you can update that if you're keeping track... :)



Regarding the character sheets, they seem to have originally been a top-tearing pad, there seems to be some gum residue left on the top edge, but almost all the pages have separated by now...pretty sure the value is $0, but interesting, anyway.  Perhaps we should add internal pictures of the known character sheets to the site...

Not rare but well worth it even though bidding started high:

He included 3 Ravenloft items & UK2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7 - all in good condition in the sale. :)

This turned out pretty well for me, considering the past two went in the $120.00 range. I do think think the sudden retraction of the auction's 2 highest bidders may have scared away any others:



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



Too bad David jacked me up, else I would have got it for $76.00. :P :lol:



I also picked these up, nothing real special, but based on the stupid prices shrinked box sets have been going for recently, these were a steal:

Nope. I'd've happily paid $89 for a better copy than that in the H1-4 bundle someone just snuck away from cougie right at the end; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5241316356 .



Seems to quite a few similar around just now.





(Seller definitely got messed around, though...).

I am confused.:?  The one I just won is perfect. :)



As a note H2 & H3 were both hole punched on that lot as well, else I might have bid higher.

I was seriously debating on it at the $90.18 price, down to the last seconds, since it was in better condition than the two that I have.  If it was $76.00, I probably would have jacked you up anyway.  Good price though - congrats.

Maybe not the greatest deal on earth, but $60 for a Mint GDQ1-7 made me pretty happy.  :D

Pretty shady bid retractions.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Hence my comment re. $89 being a 100% genuine bid- not "jacking up" the price- even though H1 is far from a "priority" item on my shopping list.

I hadn't being keeping tabs on all the bids, but decided it wasn't worth trying any higher if you were likely to comment that I was just "making you pay" an extra $20/whatever.



(Couldn't resist mentioning coug's auction being pulled away from under his muzzle in passing, regardless of condition. Sorry! ;)).

Ahhh, now I understand. Besides, I was just teasing about the *jack-up* thing anyway. I am still quite happy with the win. :wink:



Aside, notice who is not anywhere on that bidding list:

eBay.com Item Bid History



Who also happens to be absent for the bidding list on this one that is currently still up as well:

Has the "Cougie" been tamed?  :P

I just snagged a 1st print MM and some jetsam for under $30US.



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1



I had to sweat this auction showing up in "Interesting Items Currently on ebay" for a week.  (I really hate that thread sometimes)



I sold my copy last fall and have recently been furiously looking for a cheap replacement.  I was getting nervous after the last couple went for $100+.



(I offered the guy $50 bucks when the auction was 1st listed and he turned me down.  He said to reread the auction that it clearly states they never end auctions early.  I've read the damn thing 50 times and still can't find anything about ending auctions early in there...of well I'm glad he turned me down now!)

Is snag British slang for masterbation or something?  (I don't get it)

I'm stupid.  When you said "this lot" I thought you were referring to the lot of items I won in the auction not "this lot of forum members".  *smacks self in face*
