They are. It's basically a trolling venue, looking for noobs.

Yeah, no kidding! Somewheres in the $250.00 neighborhood for "Booty & The Beasts..."  Or is it really worth that much?

I do look at Ebay as well. I do not think I have ever bought anything off Amazon, but I've got some good deals off ABEBOOKS. You just have to be lucky and get items just as they're listed. One book, which I had never seen on ebay under $40, I got a VF copy off ABE for $9.99! The great thing about ABE is there is such a range of prices. Sellers have the same book listed from $5 to $100. Look up the TSR Master Catalog from the Silver Anniversary - there are currently 11 items (identical) ranging from $1.20 to $25. Good luck to the $25 Seller! I've seen that go on Ebay for $15, but could get it for $1.20 without having to bid.

Amazon is interesting though. I agree it is over-priced, but gives an indication of the upper limit of prices. They do quite a lot of second hand business, and it seems that many Sellers set their prices (on ebay as well) based on what they see there. I think a lot of the Ebay stores are over-priced as well.

That being all said and done. For the RQ lot, I bid basically $15 per item, which was optimistic. Half of them were worth about that, but the other half were worth more in ebay terms. However, Wayne's books will need to pay about $50 shipping. He'll be paying about $20 per item so he may still make a re-selling profit, but not much.

BTW Has there been much discussion of RuneQuest here? The market seems to be taking off. There is always intense bidding on any items listed in Australia.

I don't know much about the item itself but the price is a bit high.  I think Noble Knight has one for less.

maybe i have already reported some items of this seller:



eBay listings



but it is worth to stress that he's presently selling several non TSR interesting items (midkemia, companions and others...)

Lot of GDW Traveller wargames.  Looks like all of them are complete except Azhanti High Lightning (missing supplement 5).  Most of the boxes are in good shape except for AHL and Imperium.  Still not a bad lot.




** expired eBay auction **




Seller also has a couple more lots:




** expired eBay auction **




Lot contains Supplement 5:Lightning Class Cruisers and Adventure 12:Secret of the Ancients.




** expired eBay auction **




Lot contains Beltstrike and Invasion: Earth.
