Wow been following this string and the auction, I don't fully understand this seller, but I am gathering all the work I put forth to convince my wife to allow me an attempt at sniping on this auction has now all gone to waste?





Crap NOW I have to convince her that instead of trying for this lot, that it isn't really a bad thing to have more than one copy of the "White Box".



Sigh,



Jeff

well personally speaking, i think this bella person has handled this whole scenario in probably just about the worst way i could imagine. twice they have pulled the auction just as its getting tasty and now its going private??!!  8O



they have gone from knowing absolutely nothing to sitting there as if they know it all now. the greed shines through like nothing you have ever seen man!



if they would have gone through a situation where they had the vampire queen authenticated, then the situation would at least then be an acceptable one as everyone would know the situation and would be more comfortable in what they were actually bidding for and who is to even say that at some point they dont just pull this one and do something else? even better, whats the chances of them actually going through with it all and actually shipping the correct item and now copying it and sending it anyway?



well amigos, i think this is way too dodgy. if its totally legit and you guys end up with a snap out of it, then my hat goes off to you and you will be pretty pleased with yourself but i wouldnt bid now even if it was for £10. i just dont like the way in which they have handled it all and i am about to mail them and tell them that.



good luck chummers! :)

So what's happening? Is it up for private auction? Is it going back on eBay?

"It"??



No, I'm pretty sure "it" has been taken care of.



Although that has to be the craziest chain of events I've ever seen on and off eBay...

ian, go look up the top at my 11.04pm post on 8th March - thats what i got e-mailed by bella about how they were going to handle the situation!



having to deal with the folks on here? well imo when you are dangling a potential original of PotVQ in everyones faces, who else is gonna bid the hell out of it, other than the folk on here? and of course you are gonna ask multitudes of questions! i bloody well would for something thats gonna cost $800!



thats just my thought anyway :D

Hey, ho! Not another person who bid or commented to her on the basis of 1st print prices! :P



Read back up; last genuine 3rd print, $306.

(And $275 at the 2004 Gencon auction; 404 - File or directory not found. ; thanks to whoever stated that was a 3rd, not a first print).

So have you read my essay on the PoVQ production process, David? I must say there's something really tacky about the 3rd (2nd?) printing cover. Looks like it was done fast and dirty.

So, do you think we scared her? Who get the PoVQ in the ned then?

Yup. Best kept in "shrink wrap" for authenticity, I think.



Thank you. Good essay. Certainly worth posting once this has died down a bit, for our thoughts.



mbassoc2003 wrote:So, do you think we scared her?


Totally freaked out more like.



In the end she effectively turned down the best genuine offer, twice (mine, both times, btw ;)), refused to believe it had any value whatsoever, then ended up taking an offer which placed a distinctly non-trivial value back on it again.

Think she just gave up trying to rationalise things she didn't understand.

Feel a bit sorry for her from that angle... :?

Bella's definitely sticking to Lego and Meccano from now on!

[edit back in again]



yup, this /did/ just get even sillier again, I think.....



(either someone here wants a slap with a wet trout, or else someone somewhere else wants seriously laughed at, if they just went and made that same presumption about being a genuine 1st print!)

so has it actually now been sold then?



btw i just picked up the $800 out of thin air - didnt have any basis for that value ie. against 1st print etc...



i just remembered it was about what ian paid and so that was where i pulled the figure from. i wouldnt pay £100 for it personally but hey there ya go! well um maybe £100 :)

*nods*. Unless Bella decides she's had too much and decides to light her fire with it.

And you were bidding pretty much neck-and-neck with myself and John, there!

Heh, heh...

Would be a good buy on the "percentages" at such a price, yeah...

Had already offered her twice that, though, if I could have authenticated it, personally, and she didn't want it sent back for auctioning.

Like I said, no dice! (speaking of which...)
