Absolutely good advice.  There are a few of us out there trying to track down authors which sometimes turns up boxes of stuff that never sold and other times maybe only a couple copies, etc.  I usually feel it only takes 4-6 copies to drop the price a significant amount.  I have probably contacted 30+ small press authors with maybe 15 still having various amounts of their books around - sometimes 1 or 2 othertimes 50+ copies.

They are uncommon and often go unnoticed or sometimes people forget to bid.  I remember Burntwire picking up a couple of them for a good price because I forgot to bid.

Happy that a 3rd module that no one has heard about didn't pop up - I can remain happy and complete.

Traveller collectors can be excessive in their bidding.

Price is a bit high but you can feel the sellers pain.

If I would have known this many old-timers had huge "stashes" of goodies I'd have been far more aggressive hunting these down in the late 90s/early 00s.  Especially when they have in excess of a dozen copies, it definitely will affect the price in a significant way.
