Is this the same print of Delta Green that has some resellers putting up the high bin prices?

Some resellers are overpricing everything Delta Green.  Only Countdown and some of the limited edition chapbooks are tough to find.

What does the campaign setting normally sell for?




I've no idea what it normally sells for, but Paizo have just released a new expanded version (eg. 4 pages per country) that also updates the rules elements to the Pathfinder RPG rules.

Only ships within the UK.  Should keep the price down.

Any UK Members out there willing to bid on and (if the bid wins) forward this to me? :(



If so, please send me a PM to work out the details.

I was expected to get it for a good price, until aia added it here :(

Sigh...  :(
Not a single response to my request for bidding help, though I can understand that.
Most UK members likely want this item themselves.

Hate the UK only listings when stuff I had been looking for a long time get listed.
But I am sure there are far more US only listings that bother overseas bidders too.

Something as rare as this item should be offered to as many folks as possible.
The local country only sellers are loosing out big time.
Certainly so for this item.
I would have bid a good bit more than $50 Pounds for that item...  :roll:

Yep.  Things like this:

I'm sure you're watching it already.  But US only.  The line about contacting him if in Canada about shipping, etc - not so useful when he has messaging turned off so you can't message him (maybe only allows messages from US as well) :)

Actually I asked to the seller several days ago, and he accepts to ship out of UK. Most sellers accept if we ask them. But considering the current bid, it is not interesting. The last one went for far less (30£).

absolutely. while some are cool and accept either a proxy recipient in the u.s.a. or international shipping, the vast majority seems to consider such inquiries a threat of sorts (oh mah gawd—people outside the states use ebay or even the internet? perish the thought!) … whaddayaknow.

another problem is that international shipping is usually overpriced (there seems to be this flat rate for $ 14, hardly anybody offers first class shipping for $ 4 anymore).

besides, even if messaging is seemingly turned off, you can always contact the other ebay user directly. worked for me every time so far.

Good price on this Pathfinder book. Seller also has a number of gaming items at $2.00 min bids.

Dunno what prices you can get, but the only place I can send low First Class shipping to internationally is Canada, and that is $4.81 for a package of 16oz. Other countries are about $8-11 at that weight. How many RPG books weigh a pound or less, let alone the weight of the envelope/box and packing material? A number of modules likely could, but hardbacks are right out.

Since First Class varies so widely depending on the exact number of ounces (which makes estimating prices a royal PIA), and not having such an exacting scale to use, I find myself using Flat-Rate priority envelopes most of the time, which is $11.95 to Canada or $13.95 elsewhere, and most often beats out First Class on all but the very lightest items.

Previous copy (and dozens before) weren't sealed, IIRC? Too good for that...
Can't recall those that way from back in the day even, for some reason, but nothing new there.

I don't think this is an RPG. It looks more like a comic fanzine.

Have done zero research, but I'd strongly guess art portfolio.

Interesting to see how it was originally packaged.  About as expected, but still interesting.  And this ended up at £64... not sure what the 50 was about.

Collectable?  Sure if you like to collect bacteria.  God knows how many times someone wiped with these.
