I can as I have no personal interest in the lot (been shipping to Italy a lot recently to.) Shipping to me is $22.52 from their calculator - if you need to know..

Ah, thanks! I'll PM you in minutes.

...now this really pisses me off.  it is clearly NOT mint condition from the photo (note the page curl and possibly corner creasing).  And he has nicked the copy from my auction.

It was a D-Day issue.  1965 was only 21 years later...some of the players were probably veterans of the battle.  

Interesting how times change.  The article about AH's Midway game refers to the enemy as "the Japs."

Going cheap in the UK . . .  original Warhammer "White" box set.

It's almost never a good deal for me to buy and resell from the UK (what with shipping and poor exchange rates) . . . but one of you chaps across the pond might want it to keep, sell or trade (assuming no snipes come in at the last minute).

edit: Silly me . . . I forgot to post the link (only 1 1/2 hours to go now. . . )

What is a reasonable price to expect that to go for if you don't mind my asking?

I added a link to the auction on my above post (I guess I had forgotten the first time  :oops:  )

Anyway, I sold a nice, collector's grade box set for about $75.  That was the BIN on ebay and I also posted in the Acaeum classifieds.  It sold to an acaeum member within the first hour it was listed and another acaeum member requested a shipping quote first (they missed out on the BIN).

Can be hard to find a U.S. seller who has one and they can be tricky to find on ebay as there aren't really many "unique" keywords - searches often turn up hundreds of other Warhammer paraphernalia.

AARGH.

I woulda taken you up on that in a heartbeat. Didn't see it in time.

Just fyi, for future reference... that sort of thing goes extremely well at my GenCon auction.

Thanks. I picked on up maybe 5 or 6 years ago at a local Half Price Books. I have not seen one on eBay that I could recall and have often wondered about its value. I may have to consider the GenCon option since Frank says they sell well there. Would you expect better than the BIN price that BtB got Frank?

Not that uncommon on eBay: still typically £5-15, even for higher grades (previous "heads-up").
Guess we just multiply that by four and send 'em all to GenCon, now? ;)

The original edition of the (non-GW) predecessor- Richard Halliwell's 1978 "Reaper" rules- is much more scarce.

Not to sidetrack this thread too much . . . but how about The Spacefarer's?  I think that is a 1981 GW space battle rulebook.  Is that fairly rare?

As far as the Original White Box set . . . if I stuck a decent, complete one in my store I  think I could sell it for at least $50 given 1 month - almost a certainty given 2 months . . .  I'd probably set the price higher as well.  Even the Hogshead Warhammer books bring in at least $20-25 each.  I wouldn't even sell Lichemaster or Castle Drachenfels for less than $50 . .   Warhammer items sometimes take a little bit of patience to move at a good price, but there are always buyers sooner or later.  (later = within two months, NOT 2+ years . . . )

Not at all common, I suspect, but not on my regular search patterns.
Flag it as a WH40k "predecessor" in the eBay title, for greater publicity?

Re. the white box; yeah, the point was that the newer material had already become more expensive whereas the "original" was still lagging badly (and still is, IMO). No particular incentive for current players with $ to go back and pick up the old rules, and the old guard will already have copies.

Can't say what a 1st Warhammer would go for; that would constitute price-fixing and/or bid-rigging, legally unacceptable for me in all 50 states ::wearing my Auctioneer hat::

That said, I think if you put one in the GenCon auction with a $75 reserve price, it would very probably sell. 'twere more than one, it would of course drive the prices down... We do a solid 2 hours of GW-only, with a GW employee as co-auctioneer, and all the fans are there and frothing quite nicely.

I've sold a white D&D non-OCE for $525... at GenCon SoCal in Dec. 2004. It WAS really clean but it did NOT have anything else (supplements). OCE's at Indy have historically gone for more than they do on eBay.

But then, weirder things have been known to happen when I start hyping something late in the Collectibles session. ;> (Ask Stratochamp.)
