But really, the price?  :?

The trouble is, there really aren't many print error junkies so getting the going rate for the book without the error is difficult - generally printing error means cheaper.

Scroll through the listing. $200+ and the item is shipped for free. I'd think $5 million (if I remember the price) is > $200.

Read more closely - free shipping over $200.



Doesn't matter - this isn't going to bring $5mil.

It's a cool print error, per se. But not worth $150.00 IMHO...

I might be interested in it for less at the moment...

No, and the seller is a fool for eBaying it. He'd be much better served auctioning it at Heritage or a place that can market it better.

If Action Comics #1 is only bringing in 1 million dollars (only, you say...), I agree that there's no way in hell that this comic (as cool as it is) is going to exceed that amount.

I know.  Just a tongue in cheek comment that there is even a shipping charge posted with that said below.   Kind of like saying Buy Now and get 0.000016% off!!!

Ptolus hardback £200, collection only. However, I am close enough to collect if anyone wants..  8)



£200 seems steep to me though, is it?

Yes, it is steep.  Particularly since it has some wear.  Also seller says they still have the map (good) but missing the bookmarks (bad).  Since there is also an envelope full of handouts and maps, plus a CD, neither of which are mentioned, you have to wonder if they are present...

That sounds about twice what it normally sells for. I haven't been tracking these lately but I thought $140  to $180 for a complete excellent condition Ptolus

Agreed.

It's got a damaged corner. Not likely to appeal to most collectors. Not old enough to able to sell damaged goods as 'collecor quality'. Too expensive to be a play copy. Maybe if he openned bidding at £50 and saw where it went, he'd get maybe £140-160ish. The guy's a fantasist with his head somewhere other than in the real world.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Here's the answer.. How kind of him to 'include' them.. Makes it sound like a favour  :lol:

yes i have the CD with bonus materials on it,
and all the handouts although they are in a separate folder which i will include.
Also if you wish i have a ton of printed out PDF files of city districts, encounters etc
