Nothing interesting here. You have to look elsewhere.

Heh... well, there weren't any bids on that seller's other interesting items when I waved the red flag and there are obvious signs of discoloration due to poor storage elsewhere on the "important" ones. Maybe section those off if anyone here wins them, just in case? :)

I was curious to see how the newly-discovered Tadashi effect might distort the final values, but that wasn't quite as bad as expected.
Aaron (Noble Knight) has had copies of these issues stuck on his site for a few years (and for the next 45 minutes?) which explains why they're cheaper than the auctions, and given that Tadashi's "near mint" includes mailing folds, creases, etc., the difference in condition shouldn't be as much as it seems on paper.

If anyone has duplicate copies going spare I'll list mine, fwiw... [edit] over here.

I have to say that I thought it would go for a little more for the shape that it was in:

Rolemaster prices are typically low (compared with MERP) and Arms Law/Claw Law seems like it was so massively produced is so many versions that the material themselves don't have much value.

Also, the RPG market is still a bit soft (IMO) so if you want a good price, listing good collectibles with BIN prices is the way to go - find the 1 person who is willing to pay the price rather than 2 to bid each other up.

Pretty much as expected, sorry to say.

Early RM is badly undervalued/underrated in general. When a relative rarity is listed - and in this case it is not so much the books as the fine condition box, many/most of which were cut up - the ending price appears rather depressing vs. a so-so run-of-the-mill TSR mod or similar.

This other seller couldn't even get $9.99 for their box with extras, which despite the considerable additional shelf wear is still holding out not too badly considering how fragile these are;

You do see fewer of the digest-sized early Unspeakable Oaths around these says.  For info. issue #2 is the hardest to find in print (I think it had the smallest print run).

Also after many years where the magazine had halted (issue 16/17 was the last, and came out about 2000), they have returned to print and are regularly writing and putting out new issues, I think they are up to issue 23 now  :)

And the seller is using the International Priority Shipping, which is a high robbery and no international buyer will bid as soon as a seller is using this shipping program.

I pretty much agree with this.

Unless the item is a single sheet, map or paperback I only use Priority international and have hundreds of sales overseas. Its the only method that will insure me full refund from ebay/paypal if the item is lost or damaged, and it's essential if you're mailing to countries with terrible mailing service (Greece, Brazil, Italy, etc).  Plus it has tracking which can calm a buyer down when (like right now) I've sent an item overseas and it's been stuck in Chicago for weeks, otherwise there is no proof you've mailed the item, and they'll just demand a refund.  Send something with no priority mail means no tracking and no insurance, and I'm out of pocket if the item is lost, damaged, or the buyer just feels like messing with me....no thanks!

100% truth. Everything you ship overseas on eBay, if you don't use Priority Mail, you shouldn't expect to keep your money. I'll send something to a fellow Acaeumite regular mail overseas, but not on eBay.

Ditto what Zen said, if I know you, no problem.  But random dudes on Ebay, no way.  I am going through a mess now with a guy in Brazil (over $200 in modules that haven't arrived after 2 months) and the only thing saving my bacon is I sent them priority mail and have tracking available.  I suspect if I hadn't sent them priority he'd already have demanded (and gotten) his money back.

Oops. My mistake, I was not referring to a specific means of posting (I have no view on that), but the special ebay global shipping programme - which effectively halted at a stroke most of my US purchases.  I think recently they may be trying to make it better, but I also notice (anecdotally) that fewer sellers are using it, so perhaps it has not been that "useful" after all.

More broadly I have been buying and selling rpgs since 2000 and I think I have only had one item go astray from the US in that time. Your international postal service seems generally pretty robust (as is the Royal Mail).

...and while I am reminiscing I have only even been ripped off a few times in that period. The worst was a total rookie error when I paid for a high-end MERP book by bank transfer (horror!!!) to Germany.  Haha!  :lol:

That Global shipping program is a default when selling so if you don't use a template or remember to remove it for every item you sell then you get tagged with it for your USA auction. I bet a lot of small sellers don't even know they have it and there is no explanation about the end cost for customers.

Ok, cool...yeh tha EGSP sucks hard balls.  The Ebay Global shipping crap is terrible and you have to remove it because (as Jason says) it's the default shipping, since I've edited all my listings in Turbo Lister, it's gone forever from my listings.  I cannot even pull it up just now when I tried to see what they would charge on certain listings...

Also, if you insure items, pay attention because Ebay has placed "Shipcover Insurance" (not USPS insurance) as the default insurance listing,  Shipcover Insurance is terrible and requires you to go through a third party to get your item paid for in case of damage or loss....pay attention if you sell something in the USA and want to buy additional insurance that you click the right arrow.
