Pricey is right! Or maybe crazy would be more on mark. Still, he has a bid.

Okay, now he's just toying with my mind.  His things look completely untouched.   And he keeps listing more!

Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

He also has a signed 1st edition Hemingway. Reasonably that should bring at least $1000 but who knows what the ebay marketplace is like.

Several times that I hope.  One of the granddaughters, not Margaux or Mariel, I think Lorian was her name, used to attend a bookclub in a house I lived in.  Invitations were extended but I could never be bothered to read the book of the week. How lame is that.

The backstory on the Hemingway is maybe interesting so I will tell it.  Nine years ago I was at Amazon and Bezos came and told us we had to build an auction site or Ebay would wipe us off the map.  We built it and there were a bunch of collectibles that were acquired and auctioned to try to get the thing rolling.  I recall some of Einstein's personal papers.  Bezos himself bid for and won a cave bear skeleton which got put in the hallway of the building on Beacon Hill.  I used some of the internet money I was flush with to pick up the Hemingway.

Maybe it was a bad thing that employees were bidding on the auctions.  We never got any of Ebay's market share of auctions.  The whole effort looked to be a loss, but it wasn't too hard to tweak the code to allow fixed price selling, and when we allowed sellers to list their items side-by-side with Amazon products, the 3rd party sales became a major profit center for the company.  Yay us.

My wife's out of town, on a "girls' weekend" away.  I always believe in using chits when you earn them.   :lol:

Course, we'll see what the balance of payments looks like after this weekend.  But I may just decide to go into debt this time . . . .   GenCon is only once a year, fortunately.

That is a great reference book - for gaming and also for general interest.

Tombs of Valla went for $399 to lofenloc.  I was a bidder, but wasn't in the ballpark, obviously.  Sigh.

Christ almighty!  That has to be some kind of record for Tombs of Valla.  8O   I would love to see the total amount of lofenloc's yearly Ebay expenditures.  He probably spends more on Ebay in one year than I make at my job in the same amount of time.  :roll:



Hey Al, you should try and see if TFM will buy yours for his high bid.  That would be a pretty nice bit of change in your pocket considering you got it for what....twenty bucks?  :lol:

Glad I'm not the only one who had the same thought!! My wife would have my nuts and head on a post if I spent that much. There's lots of stuff I would love to have, but not at that price!
