Hi Mark, everyone best stick their White Dwarf #5 up pronto!


** expired eBay auction **




Or #4


** expired eBay auction **




And another 2 copies of DGP Aliens VolII since I posted. With the prices still tumbling. I'm a bit weird I guess, I hate seeing the prices come down, kind of makes a thing less desirable. Silly I know because it's content that counts but it's a perception thing I suppose.

In any product rush...some of them caused by mention on the Acaeum...I don't aim to buy the first one.  I aim to buy the fourth or fifth copy.  



Once the high spenders have driven up the price, often the third, fourth or fifth sellers discover that the gold rush is over and the price drops precipitously.

lol, I have seen those in the HPB store for a couple of bucks and passed them by with barely a glance.

EGG's autograph does (IMO) give more value, but that BIN?!

Not by 150 times, and 33 bucks (roughly 150 times lower than the BIN) still seems a little on the high side IMO.

The current bid price of $5.98 is fair.

I noticed that reserve after posting. The reserve is stupid so the super high Bin is no doubt stupid as well rather than crafty.

A ROMAN GLASS GAMING DIE
Circa 2nd Century A.D.
Deep blue-green in color, the large twenty-sided die incised with a distinct symbol on each of its faces
2 1/16 in. (5.2 cm.) wide


And I thought Gary and/or his gameing group invented the D20......

This one is up to $51 now which I think is pretty silly - reserve not met yet either.

Great test of the ridiculous Bin pricing though.

That one has been around for almost two millennia.  And I've got two year old twenty-siders that look a lot more beaten up.

Since I'm all about the community here, I'd like to direct my fellow Acaeum members to save $4,994 by visiting Amazon:

Ended at $72, reserve not met.  I have to wonder what the seller thought it would fetch, as even $72 seems high to me for a signature.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.
