eBay Item #380779317278

Despite years of using ebay I am still amazed at what people will buy at a premium. Look at this set which has had a bath. Shocking yet someone paid £125. For £150-£200 you could buy a lovely set in reasoanble jackets !

Do we think this is anotehr Allan effort?

Either way it looks poor to me. Why would he sign on the edge of a page like this. RUBBISH in my view

Wow Stu looking good
I especially like the orange limited edition version although i wouldnt recommend tape - you will find it will damage the surface once removed - lol

Hi and welcome
Some good advice already which i agree with. Once you have seen the real thing the touch and feel is different. The most common copy jackets are for Lord of Rings and Hobbit firsts although there are some for other titles ie Farmer Giles readily available.

This forum is a good source of info and i would say if in doubt ask.

Generally though Khamul is right and it would be costly and timely to reproduce a jacket to a standard to get it by many people. I would say go with your gut, stick to reputable sellers and if its too good a deal think twice.
Hope helps - good luck in your purchases
