Very strange ... the starting price was $0.99 if I remember, and there is only one bid.

I don't know the inner workings of ebay, but I believe there's a way to bid that goes up to the sellers reserve amount. I've bid on items that have had reserves on them, it increases the bid a small amount and then says something like "your highest bid has not met the reserve amount". I don't know if they had a reserve of 14.99 with a BIN of 15 or what...but it might explain it.

Yeah.  If you make a bid that's equal to or greater than the reserve the item's current price is automatically incremented up to the reserve.

But I don't remember there was a reserve on this item, and why bidding at $14.99 when the BIN is $15?  :?

I did something similar once...I bid what I felt good paying...and it actually ended up selling quite a bit higher than the BIN price. Now as to why bidding $14.95 on a $15.00 BIN...

I guess a nickel saved is a nickel closer to that Ferrari...  :lol:

I'm curious about this one.




** expired eBay auction **
 



It's a Teeth of Mordor, but another was sold today for £ 15.20. I'm sure the one I posted above was due to finish next week, but it was ended at £ 3.99- presumably less than the seller originally paid for it. I wonder why?

The auction ended with a buy-it-now.  The bidder clicked the BIN button at the BIN price of 3.99.

Just curious as to what defines this one as a 2nd print?  I have 3 different early prints and don't really know which came first.

To the best of my knowledge (and according to Heroic Worlds):

1st print: orange cover
2nd print: cream cover (though has a multi-coloured flyleaf cover and came in a ziplock bag) - the listing above is missing cover sheet and bag
3rd print: multi-coloured cover

If you have an orange cover, I am really envious - I have looked for one as long as I have been collecting but have never found one.

I am not sure if the second print was always released in the ziplock bag with the colour flyleaf. It may be that it was released with only the cream cover first.

No I don't have an orange cover yet.  I only really remember the one that was sold way back.

I do have 3 versions of the "2nd print" though - two with different flyleaf covers and a one that didn't come with the cover but the book is different.

I had no idea there were different versions of the 2nd print 'cream' coloured one. I have three '2nd prints' also, but they appear to be identical. Have you put these up on ToT?

The difference between the flyleaf covers is the the price isn't it? I have only one 2nd pr. (or what is call 2nd print in Heroic Worlds) and one 3rd print. It seems that all 3rd print are the same. Could you give more information about the "book is different" for the one without cover please Mark?

Did you already see a copy with this "orange cover"? I never saw it anywhere... As the hardcover print of Goldchester

Yeah, I was just looking at your flyleafs on Tot. I believe, I only have the later one. Like lokiwookie, I am unclear also on book differences.....?

Yes, I remember an auction for the orange cover a few years ago.  At the time the seller was selling a lot of nonTSR stuff so I bought a number of items but didn't win that one.  I am sure I have the auction saved somewhere and though I posted the auction picture a while back.

For the 2nd print books, all 3 versions that I have have the cream coloured book.  Two of them have the loose flyleaf which have different insides.  The 3rd copy uses different coloured paper for the some of the table sheets.

The 3rd print has the colour cover stapled to the booklet and has the price included on the cover and also some text/art changes.

Thanks Mark!

Could you post the difference on ToT when you get the time? And pictures of the loose flyleaf with have different insides if possible. Which one is the one with a price on it?

And for the orange cover, if you can find somewhere this picture, I will be highly interested to see what it looks like!
