I'm keen to move my DMG 2nd print Beta, Dieties & Demi-Gods (no Cthulhu) and MM 5th print on, but am torn as to whether to fire them all onto ebay in 1 sale or offer them up for trade here?
I guess there are a few books/items I'd like, but it depends what I can get for them.
I'd go for 1 ebay sale for ease and hope it looks at attractive pack in one go.
Cheers for advice

Dave,
List some stuff you are looking for and go the trade route first.
Could save you the headache of selling and then still looking for those key items.

If you do sell on ebay, sell them as a group. For whatever reason "lot" sales have been doing well and AD&D hard covers are doing very well.
Go old school!


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

I too have noted that sales of the old shool core rules books have risen on E-Bay.
Especially the mid and low range later prints.
The high end 1st prints have at times suffered a bit though.

Cheers, I'll do that  :wink:

Well, here's the things.

Trade
DMG 2nd print Beta (yellow flyleaves etc) with minor wear and has been covered in clear plastic film
MM 5th Print with some cover wear and pen markings on the inner rear cover and back cover.
Deities and DemiGods 4th Print with very slight wear on a couple of cover corners. Previous owners name written very neatly on the first inner page.

(Also, but kind of unrelated to first post)

Adventurer # 3,4,5,6,7
JG - Maltese Clue
Several Polyhedron 93-118 (exact numbers can be got if anyone interested)

Looking For
Legends & Lore 1st Ed  2013  (I know it's the same as D&DG, but I'd prefer this one!)
Manual of the Planes
Book of Lairs I & II

or even
DCC #29 The Adventure Begins
Dark Elf Trilogy Set of Novels


Cheers

I'd echo this. I just had a 9th print DMG sell for about $25, and I've seen PHBs go fairly regular for about $20+. Had one myself not too long ago. The two major bidders, however, were fairly new (about 50 or fewer transactions each). Amazon prices driving people to EBay, maybe?

If I don't get any interest here, I'll fire them on ebay then :)
