Welcome to the forum.  You might send a pm to bclarkie.  I coulda sworn he had about thirty or so SW A1's a few months ago.

Thanks King, will do.

Shout out to fellow Washintonian Formcritic, thanks for the welcome as well.

30 or so?  Geeesh!  No wonder I haven't seen any for sale, B's got them all!

I think those were A3's if I remember...I believe he posted a photo of all of them together...but contact him anyway, as he most likely has an extra A1 too...if not, no doubt somebody here should have an extra...and welcome!

Welcome, Erik!  Great to have you here!   :D

Kirkland eh? Wouldn't happen to be a member of the Renton D&D group would you?

Hi, long-tim lurker, first time poster.  I collect mostly pre1990 D&D items, collection small but growing.  Good to be here.

Hey Kosh,

Nope, not a member of the Renton D&D group.  Do they have a web site?

Thanks!

Hi Flatlander and welcome to the site.  :)   When you get the chance, please post your Ebay ID in this thread:

The Acaeum / eBay ID Guide • Page 6 • Collecting General •  The Acaeum

That way we all know who to try and avoid in our bidding ventures, as its site etiquette to try and avoid each other (unless its something really rare  :wink: ).

I see, thanks.  I dont yet have an eBay account, but I've been thinking about it.  Mostly I trawl the local gaming shops in my area, and garage sales and such like.  If I open one I'll let people know.  Why?  What's the theory behind avoiding each other's auctions?

Hmm...interesting.  How exactly did you message the seller and recieve a response back without actually having an Ebay account? I mean considering thats impossible to do? i.e:


Flatlander wrote:
I dont think this lady meant to decieve anyone.  Copy of her reply to my similar inquiry below.  Just someone that doesnt know the item.  I take it you were the angry e-mail she got:

"Dear Lorin,

Thanks for your clear and thoughtful description of the "D" characteristic. My camera was not working at the time so I used a stock photo. Yes it appears that I have ruffled many D and D collectors' feelings/feathers. One very angry one has already angrily written me. I'm just a Mom selling an unwanted item. But as I told him, I would never tarnish my 100% rating through misrepresentation. I have even written the loan bidder and asked them to review my revised comments and photo. Should they decide to renig, no problem. I would rather end the auction and donate this book that I have no need or appreciation of to Goodwill before I would jeopardize my standings with Ebay.

Thanks so much for taking time to educate me on the first edition status vs 3rd through 8th. I was unaware of multiple printings. I really just hoped to make less than 10 bucks on another unused item as we downsize our home and possessions.

Thanks again, Lorin. You were kind.

Best wishes,
mary"

Flatlander, I think what B is saying is that members here prefer not to bid against one another for the same item (unless it's a rare item).  If, for instance I saw you bidding on an item, common etiquette would be for me NOT to bid against you for the item (although admittedly I think I've bid against B in the past - before joining this forum 8O ).  Now I know!  :wink:

While I agree with Bclarkie on the spirit of his point, I don't think it's a widely accepted policy to avoid outbidding other Acaeum members outright.  In fact, it's darn near impossible.  

Those of us who get along well will often try not to push up each other's bids needlessly, but it's not a "rule"  ;)

My boyfriend has an eBay account.  I have been mooching off of his to browse the D&D books, but have not yet bid.  That is why I ask about the etiquette.  He doesnt want me to use his account to bid (not sure why) so I am thinking about geting my own.

Weeeeeeeuuuuuuuuuw.  The forum police have arrived.  "Keep you hands where I can see them!"

It would seem to me the fellow has a right to anonymity without being taunted, but what do I know.  I am sure in reality he is evil, rips people off and eats babies.  Nonetheless…

Welcome, Flatlander.  Nice to have you here.
