Here's a bargain:




** expired eBay auction **




Seller states that the counters are not part of the lot because he is using them with other games and he also decided to get rid of the "useless original boxes".  So for $140 you get a bunch of deckplans but no boxes or counters......whoop-dee-frickin-doo.  :?

OK, so the actual auction price isn't that bad (though the items are beat to hell), but the seller's international shipping rates... 8O

$59.99 to ship two books to Canada? Erm... Yeah...

8O Yes I agree that is ludicrous. Another sold just a couple of weeks ago for $40

Not exactly the same there. The previous one has a cover price of $5.95 and this one (like mine) have a $7 price. I don't know which one is the rarest one, I never paid attention of these different cover prices before.

Hmm. I gather that is the Second Print of the First Edition. I guess it must be much rarer than the first.

Heroic worlds lists two prints for the first edition and I know the second edition has two prints.  Some completists must have been hunting that for a while/ Perhaps it is not so silly after all.

I don't think I would call either prints extremely rare.  They both pop up on Ebay with regularity and normally sell for $50 or less.

I was waiting to buy it that another auction finish. I thought no one saw it because this lot was unsold one day before but harami bought it before  :(

I know it doesn't come up on eBay all that often, but  
** expired eBay auction **
is still a bit optimistic in my mind.



Especially since I know you can get copies in similar condition for significantly less.

Everyone of that guy's auctions is a fantasy. He must not really want to sell anything, but if someone wants to overpay by quite a bit he'll let it go.

Turns out the seller triggered a bunch of my stored searches, but I didn't clue in to the fact that it was all the same guy.  Here I just thought there was a sudden rash of optimistic/delusional sellers. :lol:

Taking another look at his items, I'm now trying to figure out which of them is the worst.  The $100 copy of Pendragon 4th edition is up there, in my books.

Some of the BINs in the store aren't too outrageous. Some. Maybe 5%, but some.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.
