This kind of seller is not professional at all... Even if you don't want to ship overseas, you have to answer to question I think...
I would have bid much more on HUGO too...

I couldn't see any of the auctions other than the HUGO because it was the only one with a link. So there was a Tradervale too?! I'd have gone to $60-70 on that. What else was up?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

Those were the biggest two items - also some Arduin and JG.

I'd have gone to maybe $75 on a sweet copy of Tradervale.
Prices are down accross the board, and in time I'd have recovered my investment. So $41 for Tradervale is a great bargain.

Mhmm... $75-100 still doesn't sound OTT unless there's a continued "flood" (unlikely) in which case holding at $50+ like, but somewhat above, Seren wouldn't surprise me at all.

Bad call on US only and lack of comms, plus no advertising here = "bargain" price, in this case.



Not a good time of year to be selling, to be honest, but even for $ prices down 20%, say, that's still a slight increase in £ terms.

Far from everything is suffering pricewise; e.g. several good, well described white boxes doing pretty well:

$230 OCE http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0405946288

$300 4th print, BIN'd in 25 minutes; http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0398414821 , then relisted with an additional fault at $25 more and BIN'd again (to Doug); http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 0404892106

** expired eBay auction **

The first OCE you listed was in very nice shape...I haven't seen one that good in awhile.



Here's one including 3 supplements that was sold for $57USD -->  
** expired eBay auction **
Sure the box is beat to hell, but the books look good + Greyhawk, Blackmoor, and Eldritch Wizardry.



5th Print for $81 -->  
** expired eBay auction **
 Box is in normal "used" shape though



OCE + 4 supplements for $129 -->  
** expired eBay auction **




If anything, it just continues to show things that are in VERY NICE condition continue to sell well but if you have items in lower conditions, its a bad time to sell unless its RARE. I don't know if anything has affected the price of the true RARES. As with all my posts...just my 2 cents.  :)

More a worry as to what might be lurking therein on a microscopic level given that box pic and the text description. Ironically, they'd've probably have gotten somewhere around twice as much by burning the box, airing the books and splitting into four sales with better pics.

*nods*. At least 03c there, IMHO. :)

Many non-TSR items still aren't anything like as sensitive to condition although it's a mixed bag (have seen a good number of common TSR mods in middling grades doing pretty reasonably, too).

I was listed at $250.00 starting bid with a $325.00 BIN ... I just so happened to see it and bought it for the BIN... so it wasn't BIN'ed to/for me at all

Didn't say otherwise; likewise with the original purchaser. Merely that you bought it to clarify that wasn't a newbie high price.

Being healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

I was wondering that too.  Seller says only a hint of staple rust.

Lurkers in the shadows, or lurkers above...?



Looks more like their beholder-eating carpet or uber-comfy chair, to be honest. :)

Agreed, as it only seems to be the two on the extreme left.  That would be  a decent coincidence.

Unless you're seeing something different.

Whatever it is, it's casting a shadow: their stairwell was my first thought but that would've required some non-Euclidean geometry to fit the rest of the picture in properly.
