Who is r***o  with 784 feedback?
Seller is marc_tarrington with 4124 feedback

Per sellers description...
VERY VERY RARE MAPS...
Both had starting bids of $49.99 and both have a single bid now.

With just a little patience, a bidder could get the entire revsied City State set for this much.
In MINTY condition.

Seller first posted each listing at $99.00 about 2 weeks ago with no bids.
Back then I sent a note asking why he thought they were worth anything close to that amount...
No direct response other than to say that they are rare....
He relisted them for half off... I suppose that was too good a deal to pass up for someone. :?

A little research and digging can save a lot of money folks.
If nothing else... ASK!

I don't have the link, but I saw a DT other day starting at (See Gnat's post below)* The seller described it as "bad" condition, worn, stained, bug eaten and I don't know what all else...

problem is, some uninformed gamer will likely pay too much for it, just because its DT. This makes collecting difficult.

Here is a Dark Tower that started at one penny.
Still there at the same price with a single bid.
amandadub is the seller.

I recently messaged the seller asking about an incomplete item, I asked if he'd lower his price when he relisted... the response was, they'll sell when they sell.  It's not what I wanted to hear, but I have trouble thinking there's anything wrong with that:  I'm not going to get the item, seller may have to be patient, but ultimately that attitude must work ok for him.


I draw the line at collecting... D&D beach towels.

A buyer with 784 feedback is not a rookie on ebay. It could be a shill bid just to get interest from some other poor bloke.

Hi John, if you're not in hurry, just wait some time and then check marc_tarrington feedbacks: you'd be able to find either the ffedback left or the one received for that auction...
