I was quite suprised to get this at this price:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

As noted in a PM to me though, I don't think the seller did himself/herself any favors by refusing non-US bids. :?

I also picked up an early CoC set:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

I've been looking for one for awhile now and was able to snag this one for what I think is a good price. :)   Granted its a third print, still a nice addition to the ole collection.

I also snagged this from the same seller:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

Not a great price, but still pretty decent considering the rewceng Tegal trend.

Forgot to add this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

I managed to sneak this one out a very reasonable price I think. :)

I was happy to get this one but it seems it does not sell for all that much. Anyone know why?

It came with a large color map that is very often missing. As a matter of fact copies with no map seem to be the norm on this item. With the map, it can go for $30 or more. If you got a copy for $12 that has the map, that's a good deal.

This was a nice one to spot.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8828335057

The interior is indeed NM, the cover more like F (unmarked, but some wear on top rear and a very mild water spot at bottom front), but that's still a great price for the last OD&D book I really wanted to own.

Thanks Ian!

How long do you suppose those hex maps will take to get out here BTW?

I'd imagine they'll be there next week, but I have had a couple of buyers say things are a little slow ATM.

Got this today....the box set did not make it somehow and the package was trashed....though everything cam through (that was shipped) intact. It may not have been the best deal but I think the DW #1 sell for something does it not?

So what were the photocopied items at the bottom?
You could probably get $20 for DW1.

A bootleg copy of C&S and some RQ Character Records. I would have sword someone else just sold a copy of DW#1 for a bit more than that. Still ok. It had 1, (5 or 7), 11 and 17 of DW.

I'd love scans of the reviews for Judges Guild in DW 11 and 17 if you don't mind.

I picked one up w\map about 3 months ago for $14.  The second edition version seems to go for much higher.

Hey Mark, if you run across a loose map for Minas Ithil let me know.  I have the book but no map for that one.  :(

Not to rain on it, but I dropped out 'cause it didn't look like the original shrink. But if you're sure, fine...

I was not impressed with the photo, that's for sure. The guy seems on the up-and-up so far, though: I just got a friendly e-mail saying it had been shipped this morning (less than 10 hours after I paid for it).

I'm cautiously optimistic that everything will be fine.
