Yeah, I kind of know what to expect from O&W. I like the Games Workshop stuff, and am interested to see where White Dwarf originated from.

I don't remember the last D&D item I bought... it's been a while. I've been distracted by more games orientated stuff recently.

Regards

Seren Ironhand, just ended at 22.09 (I was an ambivalent 3rd highest bidder).


** expired eBay auction **


Return to normal prices, or summer slump?

3rd highest. ;)

No idea how many the seller has of those, but there will probably be another up within a month or so. Minty condition, as usual. :)
Better luck next time.

Neither would have gone for that cheap if my internet connection wasn't extremely slow tonight.   :x

Fast reply! I had just edited my post and was looking for this link to add to my post:
-> the one that got away....
(grodog mentioning usual price is now $50-$60)
Perhaps hamilcar obtained a huge lot of original unsold stock?

I saw that TSR worlds a few hours ago when it was at 0.99, almost posted it here but was lazy.

I sold my TSR worlds too early...I had two (picked up at Waldenbooks, I think), and in 2002 I put them in a lot with a 1988, 1989 and 1990 TSR catalog, and a hobby shop update. Sold for about $10 to Sotterano/Dungeonmaster1968. (These were my nicest, unmarked copies of the 1988/89 catalogs...)

Do my trick and bid early... then watch the snipes pile in! (Nice wins at barely $3/each, Mark ;)).

Sorry, Brian (again): and you had me within 30 cents of being maxxed out, too.

Hmm... 59 (or was that 57?)...

Prices (on Seren) can go down, as well as up.
I paid more than that current copy, a few years back. (Wouldn't have complained to pick up another with free postage for swaps, though...).

Erm, oops... :?
The trouble with selling, unfortunately...

Thanks for the pic, zhowar: yeah, is strange on perspective with those: I'd've considered the Hobby Shop catalogs to be throw aways (remembering those stacked high over here). Yet, a copy of TSR Worlds, plus the listing here = different ballgame, altogether.

It's rather hard to find TSR Worlds in the listings. (Try searching for that phrase... it's a mess.)

Tom Moldvay has mentioned to me (as recently as a month ago) that Seren Ironhand is really extremely rare, compared to his other works. Wish I'd seen that one... I'll keep a lookout (when I'm not at GenCon that is). And there was supposed to be a sequel, but everything fell apart...

You going to see him @ GenCon Frank?  Can you put me in touch?  I'd like to pick his brain on various things, especially "Treasure of the Draogn Queen" (of course).

Yes!  It was a pleasant surprize.  I have been kicking myself (well, sort of) for not snagging those Dragontree publications a year ago, when it seemed only one other guy wanted them.  Happy to get all three for just over $13 with shipping!   :)   Sometimes you win.

I think it's likely that hamilcar has a large stash.  The price has climbed for awhile, driven in part by Ian's efforts ;)   When I started looking in earnest for a copy, they were selling for $30-40-ish, and only began to climb.  Getting a copy for less than $30 is quite nice now :D

Y'might get a page an issue, on average, and possibly zero in one of the copies.


I'm wondering that actually if I'm going to fork out some $$ for them.. and I have only see 1 issue sold in the past I believe, so they should fethch some nice $$

A self-published city-state perhaps? The listing says "published independently." Seller has several of the same.

I have seen these periodically pop up for several years now, I assume it's the same seller, it does seem to be self published.

Kent's work is pretty good:  he put the main book on sale on eBay by $5 vs. his usual prices @ Tarracina Port

A bit late, I realize, but as the seller of the DCC lot, I was happy with the offer on the lot.  Even though I don't frequent these boards too much, I'm hardly naive when it comes to the value of most collectible gaming, even though I was a bit surprised in what Haunted Lighthouse was selling for.  

As mentioned a few days ago, it saves me the time and trouble of dealing with 20 different buyers and packing and mailing 20 different evelopes.  It saved me on the costs of packaging as well.  So, even as many of you hinted at, if I didn't get 'full value' for a few of the books, I'm still satisfied with the end result.

As far as taking a private offer, sorry.  If I disappointed some of you by ending the auction as a result thereof, sorry as well.

What would you have said if you made the deal :?
