I questioned the validity of this auction:

Question to seller.....You said in your listing that the flyleaf is red.  Are you sure its not orange? Never heard of a red flyleaf on a Players handbook. BTW the white flyleaf with that cover design is the most rare, which is a true first print. Later prints had an orange flyleaf, then the covers change to the yellow corner AD&D banner.

His reply.....This may be even Rarer than I thought. I know what your talking about. But both it and the MM have "Red" Fly-Leafs. Might be something unsual there! : ) Thanks for the interest! James

Any input? Has anyone had dealings with the Game Emporium?
Sounds like a Tarrasque item to me.

I've bid on items from thegameemporium before, but haven't closed anything.  They've been quite good about descriptions and questions, so they've given me good vibes.

I did buy some stuff from them, but haven't received it yet. Communication was a little slow, the guy claimed to be very busy. However, he is very friendly.

I remember that I have already seen a picture of player HB with a red flyleaf, not orange, was few days ago on ebay.

Paid. Still waiting...

I was stalking it, since it was listed. I had been waiting to pounce but the attention here forced my hand. I will post when it gets to my lair... 'er house. :)
