I can only assume that they are extremely common.  I see the Scarred Lands stuff at used book stores all the time with price tags of less than $10 and they still dont move off the shelf.  The Malhavoc stuff is also pretty common from what I can tell with the exception of Ptolus.  But I have no idea how many of those were printed.


Ptolus is less common because of its very high retail price; I think it was over $100 retail 8O

Very little(if any) of the S&S or malhovic stuff is worth more than retail price.

Yeah maybe some of the S&S stuff can be uncommon, but I've never followed it on ebay since I bought when each book came out.  Some of the early stuff was good, it was near the end things changed for the worse.  The Forsaken elves, ugh :roll:

4E books are not retaining their value.  The lowest prices that I have seen so far are . . .



Two DMGs at $3.99 each plus shipping:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **


. . .  
** expired eBay auction **




One PHB for $0.99 plus shipping:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **




---------------



3.5 PHBs are still in the range of $17.50 - $22.50 + shipping.



Iron Kingdoms products, with the exception of Five Fingers: Port of Deceit, are still well over cover.

That's crazy, and I thought $10 per 4e book was a deal.

$10 for a 4E book is a good deal.  The insanely-low prices above indicate to me that no one really cares about 4E. "Do I want to bid on another 4E book or watch TV?  I think I'll watch TV."

I'll take a look at the 4e prices once the 4e Village of Hommlet arrives: if I can find a set for $20 or so, I may even buy them :D  How many "core" books are there in 4e these days??
