If someone was selling a rare without the staples I think words like Frankenstein or photocopy might pop up.

Not if you had the staples in a separate baggie.  Quite a few of the really rare ones don't even have staples.  Some are even loose sheets.

I'm thinking along the lines of the R1-R4, RPGA1-4.  These modules are very prone to rust on the staples.  I suspect the staples used for these products were inferior.  Wouldn't it be better to carefully remove the staples before they cause permanent damage?

The only real problem with a couple of my older items is staple rust.  I had no idea to watch out for it before I was an active collector.

A whole new slant on collecting: the staples.

Will they be as sought after as the old Shrink wrap that's been taken from the items, and how would they be graded???

:lol:

** expired eBay auction **


   The price is just out of my range, but LOOK what's in this lot!

   Or...don't look because I did not check his feedback first!

Guy sounds like a 1st class A**hole.  No Picture, more rules to his auction than description.  $20.00 fee for overseas. :?

And you're letting him off easy:

1. Most recent transaction resulted in a negative;

2. Will not combine shipping;

3. No refund policy;

and, beyond the inability to distinguish between "its" and "it's," the strangest thing I have read on eBay in quite a while:

4. "Tiki Joe games does not censor itself or it's product."

I give up: what does that mean? :?

He's been around for a little while now.  All of his auctions look like that.  I have not checked his feedback...any blots there?

    $20 to Canada does seem a bit greedy.

plus the simple spelling errors (ouch!)  - I mean seriously, even if you cannot spell, why not just type it into word first and run the spell check.  
He sounds like a moron.

OK...I just checked his feedback.   :oops:   He has managed to piss off about 1/8th or so of his customers so far. Not good.  :?   Two negs and a number of neutrals.   8O

So, I guess we might expect these booklets to have been used as traction to get snowmobiles out of ditches?

I feel like I just recommended my idiot cousin for a job, or told my neighbor that my brother-in-law is really a great guy.   :?

Or said the girl who works in accounts receivable has a "really great personality." :)

Actually, you did us a favor, DJ Flava M-Ship — this guy qualifies for what I like to call the "double-block." I've blocked myself from ever bidding on any of his poop and I've also blocked him from ever bidding on any of my items. Life is way, way too short to deal with bucketheads.

Argh! It's bugging me even worse now! I've got to stop looking at it ... :)

Tiki Joe games does not censor itself or it's lack of linguistical skills.

In any event it's a bit steep since the first 3 books come up quite regularly. The box set is probably worth a bit moe.

He also uses the dread "as is"

I'm still grumbling about missing the Caliban that was up ...
