Well guys, the 4 Adv Guild modules Paul listed have now ended. I think the price is pretty good for their rarity.  As of right now just by looking at those 4, the avg for AG modules is about $30.  Looks like several fellow acaeumers were bidding on the items and won them.  Dave won the Mission Brief and Trouble with Derro, Adrian the Dragotha lair, and Devon got the Return of the Pick-Axe.  Good wins guys! Now trade them to me :-D HAHAH j/k  PS. Does anyone know who Guestalt is? He was bidding on those items as well........

 You already know what you have that I want Mike.  Just say the word and they are yours.  In response to your classifieds, I have a copy of Mindbane from DarkStar Gaming.  Also yours if you want to trade.

We'll do some trading Dave :-) Once we get the date and time setup for the West Coast "Gencon", we can all have a massive trade.

Most I've ever paid for an AG module is $3/piece.  But of course, I probably got insanely lucky ;) Now just wish I could find the ones that I need...  I've got some doubles (triples, in some cases), almost enough to get a complete series if I can get some 1 for 1 trades going.

I haven't seen much activity on the AG front in awhile, thought I should post these two recently concluded auctions to see how folks feel about the pricing/valuations now?

It appears that a lot of people here are screaming about this creep1962. What is the difference between what he does and what every other reseller does?

I have got to diasagree here. Not every reseller does this:

R D Wingfield: Fiction & Literature | eBay

Ad&d Tome of Magic | eBay

D D AD D TSR RPGA The Investigation of Hydell R 2 | eBay

Ad&d Box Set | eBay

I don't begrudge anyone who is trying to make money, but this guy is fishing for people to take advantage of with those prices. Kind of like people like this:

Ad&d Box Set | eBay

Take that in conjuction that he has without a doubt the absolute highest shipping prices of anyone selling D&D stuff on EBay(3X as a high as Tonya and Tight Ass games), doesn't really leave a very good taste in my mouth.

Where are you seeing that? Looks like Creep charges $6.95 (overcharging, but not insanely so), whereas Tonya is charging $4.00-$5.00 on similar-weight stuff.

The problem folks have with Creep is, for the most part, his "fishing" with super high BIN prices. He's counting on someone without much knowledge assuming that the price is reasonable, and impulse purchasing the item. He's also pushing up the prices for folks that want to own stuff for themselves, rather than for the purposes of resale (I personally don't mind that part, since I think the auctioning sets a market price, but plenty of folks disagree).

You must have missed the Silver Anniversary Set with the $20.00 shipping cost. and the R1-4 for $14.95.  Additionaly he ships first class mail which is almost the equivelent of Media in terms of cost and time of arrival.

I've never charged $239 for a Silver Anniversary Set, nor would I, since it's not market value (never mind the $20 shipping cost). It's not what he does, but the length to what he takes it (buying something and reselling for a profit). He's the kind of reseller that attempts to take advantage of the newbie who may have just signed on to Ebay and thinks two bills plus is the going price for the set.  Personally, from what I've seen in the last few years this kind of reseller doesn't last long.....they rarely get any repeat business, end up accumulating negs due to disgruntled buyers, and quickly end up putting out much more money than they are bringing in.  Once again I'll say it, you CANNOT corner the market on rares without soon having an empty wallet. How many overpriced H1's has Cougar Retard sold in the last year or so?  Not many?  And they are still popping up regularly on Ebay, so much for his attempt to corner the market there....
    Let's face it, if Titan games gets flack for high shipping Creep needs to catch some also...

I truthfully don't care about the creep, more focused on the AGs truthfully---I haven't seen that many for sale lately, and happened to miss these since I was travelling at the time (and still don't have a sniper program at work for myself).

Are the prices for AGs in general rising, falling, the same?  Anyone on the Valuation Board looking at them at all?  Just curious :D

Allan, these modules are in fact being tracked.  As you stated though they do not come up very often, so at this point it is difficult to get a complete gauge on where they may be heading. One thing that I think will keep the value down to a certain extent is the same issue that haunts the Coverless Jade Hare, and that is the fact that they would be easy to recreate and sell fakes of. Even still, it seems that at this point they seem to be on an upswing, based on what the current valuations list them at versus what these particular ones went for, and also the fact that a set of 5 that sold back in the spring went very high at $500.00. Of note though, with that small of a sample to work with so far, accurately gauging a trend is at this point pure speculation, because at this point these just is not enough data to work with. From a personal veiwpoint, and basing it in part on the where the other rares seem to be going though, I would not be surprised if you see these at a modest increase in the next few years. Hope that helps.

Now wait a sec. So it's OK for people to go "fishing" for quick BIN prices from people on eBay who have no clue that their item is worth a LOT more, but it's NOT ok for a seller to fish for idiots who can't do a little bit of research before they overpay for an item? This is beginning to seem like a double standard.

There is not double standard at all. Like anything else, it depends on how you go about asking the seller for a BIN. If you lie to the seller and tell him something is worth $20.00 and you'll happily give him $30.00 because "you have been looking for this item for such a long time" when its really worth $200, then that is feckin BS. However, if you just ask a seller if he has a BIN in mind, then that to me is not really any different than if he put the BIN on there in the 1st place.  As far as fishing for idiots, I agree that the onus should be on the buyer to check things out before he buys them, but then again there are people who fall for scams all the time and it doesnt make it any less of a crime.

Imo, it's the intent that matters. Creep's intent is to take advantage of ignorance. Someone asking for a private BIN, setting it far lower than the item is worth - that's just as shady, imo.

If a seller has set a public BIN that's lower than the value, then I've got no problem snapping up that item, or seeing someone else do the same. The seller is asking for a price, you're meeting the price, there's no shady intent there.
