A friend has offered me £120 (roughly $180) for the following:

Hellbound
The Great Modron March
Priest Spell Compendium 1, 2, & 3.

They are all in NM+ condition (and all complete).
Should I accept it, or turn the offer down, because I'd get more money once the market picks up?

Edit: Just to clarify, he offered £80 for the Planescape items, and £40 for the Priest's Compendiums.

$200 now. Fwiw I'd bite their hand off if I was selling, but no guarantee I'm not missing something there...

If I had copies to sell, I would, for that price. Hellbound would be more difficult, probably, to get but the others aren't that big a deal, I think.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

I think the price is pretty fair.  A good set of Priest Spell Compendiums is $75-$90 (or at least it was when I last looked).  Then Hellbound for $70-$80 and Modron March for $20.

If I had extra copies I would sell them for that price too.  As a frugal buyer though I probably wouldn't buy them for that price - even though I think its fair.

Complete sets of Priest or Wizard spell compendiums often sell in the $70-120 range if they're in excellent or better condition:  I don't know if the other books would push that final figure up about $180 or not, though.

eric

well you have the offer right there. sometimes its best to take them like that, as ebay etc can be a "crap shoot" at times and you can just never know with these things.

so quite honestly, right now, i think thats a pretty decent price, specially selling them all together.

i would sell if it was me.

The other thing to consider is that if you can find these local, you will save a bunch on shipping that would put the price more in your favour.

The general consensus seems that it would be a good idea!
So I'll accept. Thanks, all.

I just phoned him to tell the news, and he's also interested in A Paladin in Hell, which I've accepted for £13.

So a profitable weekend, I think. He seems happy though.
Let's hope his check doesn't bounce!
