Looking for appraisal assistance with the following items:

Loremaster's The Book of Swords 2nd printing 1983 M/NM

Chainmail 3rd edition 7th printing
serious issues: no writing and otherwise in pretty great shape, but all of the illustrations have been colored in with marker with a few having very slight bleed through onto the other side of the page.

Finally, I'm wondering what the story is with LotFP's Green Devil Face #'s 1-3. I saw some on eBay for $70+ ...  8O  I know they're out of print, but... really? Because mine are ready to move at that price.

Thanks & Cheers,

ZB

Loremaster would be around $60-$75 (maybe a bit higher on a good day).

Or some advertising/Acaeum Effect (tm) rubbing off? :)

Note the seller. Note the previous (month long?) listings which went unsold.
There's nothing to stop anyone asking whatever price they wish. If they do so for long enough, that will sometimes become the accepted baseline "value" or otherwise influence future sales even if the original item was never sold.

Take just about any out-of-print item price that Noble Knight sets a price for, take one-half to two-thirds off of it, and you should come up with a pretty good idea of the amount you should expect to get for it on Ebay.  :roll:   That has been my observation, for the most part anyway.  Death Frost Doom (1st print) for $95?  I could see that being the norm in ten years maybe.

Looks like someone felt the need to buy a DFD 3rd printing for $65 recently.  8O

I would say take off 1/2 - 3/4, but otherwise, yeah, this.

In no way am I questioning their need/right to ask what they ask, but a patient buyer simply doesn't have to pay those prices.

About $20.00 - $30.00 for the Chainmail book... depending on how well the coloring inside the book was done...   :D

And if the coloring is good, take pics for any auction. It might help. The bleeding through may not go so well, though.

Thanks for all of your input!

And the illustrations' coloring was pretty well done actually.   :)
