I thought that module L3 Deep Dwarven Delve (found only in the Silver Anniversary box set) was a semi-big ticket item.  The only one I've seen on eBay recently went for $46.  Is that the going rate?  Or was that auction above/below the norm?

Well, that's an interesting one.  Personally, I wouldn't pay $0.02 for it because I don't like supporting people who rip up boxed sets for profit.

The sets themselves go for a very fluid $60-120, depending on how many people are paying attention that week.  So in my opinion, $46 for just one part of that set would be high.

L3 has sold for more that $80 on its own. Its juat a matter of timing and luck.

I have picked up a couple within the last year. One for $40ish and the other with a $35 BIN. I was looking for it for the longest time by itself because I did not want to break the sealed set just to read it. The usually sell for more than that though and $46 is on the low side still. They can go for less but $60 or so is not uncommon IIRC.

Both L3 (and the set in general) are very fluid, as mentioned above. Maybe you're right, though, and the days of this item getting $80 to $90 are numbered; I remember getting something like $52 for my last one*, which is in the same ballpark as your $46 example.

+++++

* That would be $52 just days after DarkSeraphim had one go for something like $99 following a bidding war. *sigh*

Didn't the "inflated" price of the L3 by itself have to do somewhat with a certain someone trying to corner the market on them?  If that aspect is now gone, I can see how the price would have leveled out a bit.

I don't know. I do know that Cougar sold a few with a £50 reserve. So people were willing to pay that for them.

L3 has a pretty bad rep on Dragonsfoot as a rush job. Apparently they didn't let Lakofka finish editing/writing it before printing. That could drive down prices in the long run. Of course, that never hurt ST1.

Right on both counts.

Price ^^^ long-term.  They only produced 5000.  A lot of them will survive so I wouldn't expect stellar prices though.

Agreed. But out of the 5k how many actually have seen the light of day? About 1/4 of all boxed sets are or seem to be still shrinked. Therefore, I am gonna say at most there are around 3-4000 open copies. Then the law of disappearing modules will come into play. So, single copies in the market or that will eventually find a a way to market is even less.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!
