Do these seem reasonable?  I apologize for the formating, I'm not very computer literate.  Thanks for any help you knowledgable folks are able to give me.  FWIW, I'm getting free shipping.

With free shipping its probably not a bad deal.  Although some of the info is probably over exaggerated.  

H3 for $100 on Ebay seems way too high.  I know there have been some crazy prices for things in shrink but I would probably only put this at $50.

Battle System Skirmish - $7 again seems high here too :)  If you can sell it you are doing well.

Necro for $20 is probably about right although if you look I'm sure you could find one cheaper.

Thanks for the input.  I know his estimate e-bay info on H3 was on the high side  :lol:   Someone else has dibbs on that anyway.  I'm willing to pay 20 for the Necro to avoid the hassle e-bay can sometimes be.  

Something Wild, Giantcraft and BS Skirmish are the ones that I was most curious about.   I've traded minis on-line with this guy before, so I trust him.

I'm a collector who doesn't need pristine copies, just decent readable copies.  This seems like a pretty hassle free way to obtain a few items I missed along the way.   I'm not necessarily going to pay cash either.  I may decide to trade D&D miniatures for them.  I collect those as well.

These books are pretty much a dime a dozen.  Something Wild in shrink usually goes for about $10.  So paying some token amount like $5 is pretty standard for open used copies.

h3/h4 sell better in england  
** expired eBay auction **


@nyjastul69 - ignoring qgr even $50 sounds high for condition stated
