I am going to start putting interesting eBay auctions I run across (separate from the head scratching thread The Wonders of eBay ) that I think are interesting or worth a look. Feel free to add your own, or add commentary on anything posted here. I am not the seller or affiliated with any of these sellers, by default.

9100 £ for a 2/1/1 seems quite high, but the conditions were extremely good..

Indeed. I thought it was interesting and purchased it along with another lot of emphera (Centenary Promo Folder titled "You'll believe in magic").
