   Look at the color of the booklet in that auction.  It appears to be pink.  Wasn't there a guy selling fake pink copies of this publication?

   I don't know if the fake copies also had cardstock maps.  Is it possible that they aren't really fake?

   Check for the staple marks inside the booklet.  Are there signs of older staple marks photocopied in the center fo the booklet?

   Mine is tan and is signed by Kerry Lloyd.

Could be a bad photo color wise..but seeing the tables/etc cut out it makes it a reasonable price.

I had a pretty good day yesterday.  Since I became a Traveller collector about two years ago, I have been trying to pick up as much stuff as I can.  I have had a difficult time finding the rarer MegaTraveller items...especially the Digest Group items.  I got extremely lucky this past weekend.  One seller had just listed several items that I was interested in so I put some decent proxy bids in but realistically I figured I would get outbid on one or two of them for sure.  Since I really wanted them and didnt want to screw around with getting sniped and having to wait for them to come up again I emailed the seller and made an offer on all of them for a nice little sum (only done this once before).  I waited about 24 hours and still no one else had bid on the items.  During the afternoon on Sunday I noticed that all the auction listings had been removed.  So I checked my email and lo and behold the seller had accepted my offer.  I had already bought a couple of items from him so I knew he was a decent fellow so I took the chance and transferred him the money.  What I got was:

MegaTraveller - Arrival Vengeance (never seen one on Ebay)
MegaTraveller - Guide to the Diaspora Sector (last one I saw went for $65)
MegaTraveller - Digest Group The Early Adventures (last one went for $55)
MegaTraveller - COACC (common item but he threw it in with the others)
Traveller New Era - Vampire Fleets (last one went for $57)
Traveller New Era - Assignment Vigilante (common item)

I figured he wasnt expecting to get the amount that I offered ($160) and I added that he would save money by shipping them all to one person and not having to pay the Ebay fees.  He got a decent amount but I still think I got the better deal and also peace of mind by not having to worry about getting outbid.  :D   Of course, now I cant afford Warriors of Mars....darn.  :P

I had been out of town for a week and missed my weekly Half Price Books run. I finally got a chance to go today and nothing new on the shelves but I caught an unusually friendly staffer who showed me what they had behind the counter....nabbed a complete copy of Beyond the Mountains of Maddness for $19.98 and a complete Lorien for $5.98 again with an additional 15% (due to a coupon).

Hi:

   Three years now since most of my game stuff went into storage.  Today, we started to empty it all out.

   It was kind of like Christmas in May for me....like a family reunion.  I located at least one large bin of my stuff.

   Along with numerous Dragon and White Dwarf magazines, there  were:

1)  Mines of Keridav

2)  Escape From the Ashwood Mines (Thieves Guild #9)

3)  Glory Hole Dwarven Mine

4) A bunch of TSR modules

5)  Space Gamer and White Wolf magazines.

6)  All four Quicksilver Fantasies.  Three of them are mint, in original plastic bag, and the fourth is in good condition.  Anyone have a handle on what these might be worth?

There is another crate of good stuff lurking there...lots more stuff to unearth.

Mark

Ah, gol dangit!

  I have the four solo adventures.  Bought em for $.99 or less apiece way back when The Gamesters was having a selloff.

   There is another box in storage...at least...becuase I remember titles like Heart of the Sunken Lands and the like.  I remember owning at least one Companions module...etc....

I know this feeling. My stuff was stored at my parents' house from 1984 to 1996 (what I like to call "The Girl-Chasing Years"). I'll never forget that feeling of rediscovery when I started opening boxes and seeing my old favorites.

Can't beat the cost for these Rolemaster items:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1

This was pretty cool too . . .  besides a bunch of "other" stuff it has Skyrealms of Jorune and Warhammer:  The Lost and the Damned - which is worth a more than the entire lot of books for resale value - and I've never actually been able to get my hands on one yet, so I finally get to check it out! (Plus the seller is in Rochester, so I can pick it up in person and pay no ship charges)  :D

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1

No box and the books are worn, but it was only a $9.99 BIN for the Ringworld Companion and all four Rulebooks from the Ringworld box set.

Would say that's a pretty good warning to anyone thinking about selling RM just now... :(

As if the price on Guido's last week wasn't indicative enough.

But good for those buying it. Nice buy there. Well it will be eventually from what you are pointing out that might be the rule and not the exception right now.
