and thats why you do a test bid first to see if you can bid...
Always ask to be put on the exception list if they agree to let you bid, have been caught out many times before...

feel free to fire me a PM if you get UK only auctions in future chaps, as I don't always check the 'items on ebay' threads too regularly.

Normally, I find out it is US or UK only about 5 minutes before the auction ends but I appreciate the offer and see if I end up doing some preplanning in the future.

Bleh, made me a bit ill to lose this one.  I figured with no notice here and a mid week, mid day, three day auction I had it cold.  My snipe never even registered.



Gratz to someone... and if you ever want to sell it... let me know!

LOL.. never mentioned on the interesting item list, but you would have to really be hoping that this would be missed.. I was bidder no1, I knew I'd never win just wanted to track it.. and what a final bid, must be up there as one of the highest non D&D item..
TFM? is the winner? I don't follow peoples bids much..

(Edit: yep TFM won this)

Ya, I put in a token bid ($328) too but would have been completely shocked if I won.  It is the first copy that I think most of us have ever seen - anyone ever seen another copy?  So, it would have been a tough item to judge price on.

Holy crap, talk about weird.........
I was reading Different Worlds last night, and I read the interview of Ken St. Andre. He said he sold 40 copies at the con, and brought 60 back. I even told my wife about it (I got the usual blank look).
I would have guessed around $1,500.

Starting bid is wacky enough.  Shipping is moronic.  8O

I clicked on the link and reported the seller for charging $25 for a standard flat-rate shipping box...double the actual cost.



When I hit the link again it was $15.  I swear it changed in between my report and when I went back for another look.

Just noticed that.  Pretty sure the opening bid price dropped a bit as well.  Still way too high though.  These dont go for all that much in mint condition.  I dont understand why sellers just dont stick stuff on Ebay with a low opening bid and see what happens.  If what they are selling is worth it, they will end up getting a good end result more often than not.

And if the seller is reading this thread, congrats on the new baby.  :)

Wow!!!


** expired eBay auction **




I didn't think it would go for more than 5-6$ (in the same time for example I have a copy for sale on ebay for less than $6 with no bids)

Your copy is the Games Workshop edition - it has a yellow 'scenario pack 2' cover, like earlier editions, but the contents have been re-typeset to fit on half as many pages (like the edition included with the later Chaosium RQ box). The difference is visible at the top of the cover, yours has no Chaosium logo & 'Runequest' is in block print.



I'm also curious as to what 'Occasion' condition is, I guess I'm not familiar with French terms for item condition.



I was a little surprised to see the other one go for $30 in this economy, but not too surprised. There's a hit & miss aspect to RQ auctions, I see the same item go for $10 one day & $40 the next. Best I can tell, there is a small but fairly dedicated community of RQ collectors out there in the buying public. While no RQ items are very rare, they're uncommon enough that a collector has to wait a few months to see a given title appear. When it does, they may be inclined to open their wallets pretty wide.
