Could you direct me to one of those sales?  Does anyone have one for sale at the moment for that price?

I'm not trying to jab you, Mars.  I really want to buy one and $35 sounds like a good price.  

The only Ebay listing at the moment is for $175.

If anyone here has a complete DCC #35 in reasonable shape and wants to sell for $35, I am interested.

Someone who just doesn't know any better.

There are 4 sales of these boxed sets containing both modules in the last 2 weeks at $35.  But we all know Jason's skew on "valuation".


Mars;

The sets being sold by Aneoth on Ebay are all missing the original maps, as is the other by bygrinstow (all four that went in the $35 range) which is why they are going so low.  Don't worry, I couldn't figure it out either until I read the complete descriptions.  For whatever reason there are a lot of Known Realms sets out there without maps.

Of course, that means the smart collector could start treating these like a Silver Anniversary boxed set, and sell the pieces for more than the whole is worth. I'm interested enough myself that I would probably auction the two modules if I found them just to see what they would bring.

Typical price for this is around $75-$100. If you ever find one under $50 with the maps, that's a good deal.

Not gonna happen.

See previous discussions in this thread and others in these forums for those sets that I sold with COPIES of the maps.
Almost every set I sold had some dings to the box with NM Books and all of them had full sized paper copies (copies made by me) of all the maps as a free bonus item.
My Highest sale was over $60 early on; while $35 was the low point.
The average was closer to $45 for the 12 or so incomplete sets that I sold.

As stated, I am now down to just two of those sets and I am in no hurry to sell them.
Certainly not at $35...

I also have several SWed sets that wont be sold anytime soon.

I agree completely that complete or sets in shrink are much higher.  But as far as I can tell, all of these $35 sets included both 35A and 35B modules and the Gazetteer book and the box . Dismissing any value associated with the box and Gaz book puts 35A and 35B at about $17-$20 each.  The recent sales of the complete sets for $75-$100 is typical.  So trying to sell the 2 modules (minus box, minus Gazetteer book, minus maps) for $100 is an obvious noob fishing expedition.  IMO it's a shady seller who is always trying to take advantage of people that don't know better. He a "used car salesman" wanting Cadillac prices for a Chevette.

With the Silver Anniversary boxes, they are fairly close to even in sales (pieced or together):  $70 for L3, $10 each for the rest if you consider about $150 for the full set.  Even in the glory days of L3 for $100, the single item was never more than the complete box.

I have a few shrink sets too and at what they are selling for today, I am not interested in selling.

Hey Jason,

Probably a better chance with those than the knives and throwing stars on the cover of the book...  :lol:

You see, while the other PCs are stopping to point their little thundersticks at the amorphous mass, your PC (wiser, smarter, better than before) is running away at top speed.  That's how guns help you against CoC monsters :D

That reminds me,  I spotted a Ptolus at my FLGS last night.  For considerably less than $100.  The envelope in the back looked complete, except for the CD.  If that's of use to anyone, PM me, and I can help you out.

Unfortunately it is either a reprint or it has had holes punched in it to fit the black plastic binding. The color of the cover is right.

The highlights of this issue are an angry letter from Tim kask and a 5 page contribution by Steve Perrin.

If I collected many of the A&E's, I'd probably pull the staples and use the black binders. The staples are awful in these, the back pages fall off and the staples are a major source of rust.  

"Angry letter from Tim Kask" has gotten my attention  :D

I'll transcribe Tim's letter and post the copy.

It depends the condition. From 10 to 25-30$. Furioso is the only one that could sell for more than $30 (perhaps $40-50 but since prices are rather low since several months, it could go for less)

Agreed, I have them all, but hope to obtain a nicer copy of Furioso some day as the one I have is less than nice.
