Opinions on the following would be much appreciated:

I have both the Western and Eastern Countries Trail maps for Mystara.  No tears, marks, or fading.  Very minor corner wear and stress marks on the folds of the envelopes.

I have a copy of Arneson's First Fantasy Campaign.  I bought it shrink wrapped, but have opened it.  It is in very good condition, near mint, I'd say.

I have a copy of Goodman's Dungeon Crawl Classics #3.5: The Haunted Lighthouse, signed by Mr. Arneson.  However, when he signed it, he dated it June 2003, instead of july 2003.  Oh well.

Also, would I do better via e-bay or the GenCon auction?

Thank you for your time.

they would all do very well on ebay i think, but you would do well to offer the haunted lighthouse on here, as they are all collectors....some pictures of it might help too

Yes, I've already got some PMs.  I'll snap some photos.

BTW, I will be at GenCon.

Well, I think you guys will have to wait.  I've decided to hold off on selling the Arneson DCC module.  I'll most likely sell it next July to fund a good chunk of my GenCon trip.

Thanks for the feedback, and the interest guys.  I'll certainly let this board know when it goes up, as I like this place and plan on hanging around.

BUMP.



Just to give you guys a heads up: As I stated previously, I will be auctioning the autographed Haunted Lighthouse soon on ebay.  When I get pictures together and get it posted, I'll post a link here to the auction in the appropriate forum.



Thanks for the feedback you all provided almost a year ago.  If you choose to bid on my auction, I wish you the best of luck.  Well, actually, even if you don't, I wish you the best, anyway.   :D

Yes, as a matter of fact, I just listed it.  I've been running flat out the past 2 months, and I finally got the time to snap some pictures.



Here it is:

I'm not trying to rip anyone off on shipping.  I said 2.5 lbs to give myself leeway to pack this thing well enough to ensure it arrives in the same shape I sent it.  I figured if someone was willing to fork over $100 or more for it, they would probably want it to arrive intact.  That's all.

I've updated the item with the following:

UPDATE: I'm catching some flak for the 2.5lb estimate on shipping weight, so here is what I'll do: On Monday, July 16th, I'll package it up, take it to the Post Office and get a real weight for the package and update the description for this item.  Shipping will then be based on the actual weight of the package.  International shippers will have the option of the item being sent via Global Express Guaranteed, Express Mail International, Priority Mail International, or First-Class Mail International.  The only thing I am unsure about is insurance (which I am assuming bidders will want) on these various methods of shipping.   So, please hold your bids until I get the actual weight posted.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.
