Anybody care speculate on the fair market value for VG copies of:
Advanced Wizard
Advanced Melee
In the Labyrinth
Do these items come up for auction often on Ebay?
Thanks,
Mike.

* bump *

It's been my experience that these have been trending downward for some time now. There were some "glory days" I remember from about 2-3 years ago where the whole Metagaming TFT line sold like crazy: $50 per book, over $100 for the set, etc. Every auction had lots of bids and most ended with a sniping frenzy ... ah, the good ol' days. :lol:

Disclaimer: I don't track TFT with nearly the regularity that I do certain D&D items. Maybe those books are back to getting solid prices. YMMV.

Completed eBay sales, FWIW:

The last two copies of Advanced Melee: $23, $28;

The last three copies of Advanced Wizard: $22, $28, $20;

The last three copies of In The Labyrinth: $25, $30, $31.

The "good old days" were definitely better. Like everything else, though, these items might experience an upswing in the future ...

I picked up a a few Metagaming titles while I was in NJ last, including one that was unpunched.  I'll have to dig around to see which game it was.

Thanks for the data points.

I used to own a complete set of these items. They were purged along with most (but not all) of my ad&d and traveller items in the late 80's by my rents while I was away @ college.

Sigh.
