Must be a record:

$67 for 1984 for a TSR catalog.

It's a nice item and a good pick-up.  1984 Retailer catalogs are pretty rare I imagine.

And given that cougarretard was the 2nd highest bidder at $66, I reckon he must think there will be someone willing to pay around $150.  So, probably a bargain.

Catalogs have no set value. The same catalog that goes for $5 today, might go for $30 in the next auction. It happened before, it's going to happen again. Therefore it's hard to say if it was a bargain or overpaying.

Nevertheless, probably a record for a catalog.

Cougarrinard's high bid was a surprise to me. He either had a buyer or wanted it for  his own collection. Or maybe he wanted to help Ciro a little? (No offense meant.)

Or maybe Cougarrinard is trying to keep prices at levels he feels are appropriate for his quest to be the only AD&D seller on ebay.  He throws high bids on an awful lot of items. Most of which seem a bit high to try and make money off of.

I agree he does this on several items (H1 being an obvious example). I think, it would be a waste of time with the 1984 catalog, simply because this thing is so rare.
