Only the original "EGG as DM" levels, rather that the parts wherein Mordenkainen had adventured previously (being a bit difficult to both DM and play at the same time)? If so, I don't see any obvious coffee stains on Dungeons & Dragons (Original Edition) | Image  | RPGGeek :)
No sign of Gail taking offers yet, however.

Ah...the smell of gamer cigars then!  :D

Ironically, in recent years Gary Gygax could have auctioned off his cigar butts and he would have had bidders.

For instance, he could have auctioned off that metal box he's using as an ash tray in the picture.  8O

** expired eBay auction **


Sweet sweet Land of Giants. :D

Now I just need to get The Great Pendragon Campaign and a replacement copy of The Noble's Book, and I'll have all the out-of-print supplements.  (I do need to pick up Greg's self-published books at some point though.)

That was a deal.

I wasn't happy to see it, because I'm listing a copy tonight.  (And why did Pagan Shores sell so cheap?)

Hopefully for your sake it was just a blip in the prices.

I missed the Pagan Shores.  How much did it go for?

Edit: $11.  Ouch.  Though I'd say the Lordly Domains ($10!!) was a bit more of a shocker.

Looking at his completed auctions, he doesn't seem to have done so well on a large number of them.  (GURPS Russia, for instance, used to be a sure-fire seller at twice his opening bid.) Downturn in the market due to the time of year, perhaps? :?

I had 48 rpg books listed last week which ended on Saturday.  Many went for 99 cents and about eight books didn't sell at all.  None were valuable as far as I knew, but I thought they would have done a little better.  Most originally sold at the $12.95 to $17.95 range, although I didn't pay that much for them (I got all of these and  the rest of a pick-up truck full lot of stuff for $350.00).  The market may be slow or people may be spending what money they have left on gifts for others 8O instead of themselves. :?

My Amazon sales have picked up in the past two weeks.

Definately a buyers market right now, lol.  Starting to think I am going to lose money on shipping and fees for the limited Thing in the Valley I stuck up for kicks... and to advertise Pacesetter.  

Does it look like sellers picked up on it quickly though and aren't listing as much interesting stuff?  It seems that way to me all of a sudden.

Either the market has collapsed on it (always a possibility with GURPS books), or Amazon sellers are being reasonable for once. :lol:

Guys;

ATM, some hard to find items are going for less. It seems like the only time I sell something is if they are part of my never-ending 15% off sale (maybe because it appears to be on sale people jump all over it).  Auctions seem to be going stupid cheap lately, but Ebay store prices are still steady.  If you are a reseller, or just someone that doesn't mind buying lots to get 1-3 items you want out of it, you can do really good placing the items you don't want in your store for a slight markup.  The trick is you may have to sit on the item for a bit. Especially around the holidays when people have a bit of cash (maybe a lot less than years earlier, but people still have a few bucks) they don't want to bother with an auction and prefer to buy it outright, so a store or one of those 30 day Buy it now auctions might do a lot better for you.

As for Gurps stuff, it seems to have really hit the skids. The only items that can reliable do well are Prisoner or Horseclans, and even those are relatively cheap from their heydey.  I sold a Gurps Prisoner for $40 recently, and that is a $75 item from years past.  Anyway, if you wanted to complete your Gurps library now is the time!

I can vouch for that.  I had about ten GURPS books this past week in great condition and the average selling price was $2.00 with $3.00 shipping.  Three of the books didn't even sell at 99 cents!  Speaking of which, if someone wants them at 99 cents, you can have them.  Just look at my completed auctions to see photos.  We have:

Best of Pyramid Volume 1
Werewolf: The Apocalypse
Romulans: Complete Data File

Personally, I am waiting until the new year to sell higher priced items. :?

Quivering Trid-Nodes!

While I'd rather have paid the initial $4.95 bid, at least I beat out the sniper. Anyone here?

Thanks, I was happy it went undernoticed. Now if I could just come across a SoJ 1st ed., a Maustin Caji, the 2nd ed. mail order Essays, and the fanzines, I'd be well on my way to a complete Jorune collection. I'm not even going to hope for a corastin mask to pop up on eBay. If any survive, I imagine they're with Miles Teves or the Lekers.

Didn't even know I wanted a Dragonbone, but at that BIN, I figured it had to be a good deal:
