This is true but I think that any other decent seller could have done the same.

NeRO- thanks for keeping a running tally

on a tangent -

I noticed the new island is all dinged up. Not exactly collection worthy imo. They've all been out of a comfortable price range tho, so maybe I'll have to wait a good long while to get my set.

Assuming they weren't sold privately, his next round should include:

Tropical Island
Bayou
Hurricane

I'd say that's decent.

to clarify, i meant the physical condition of the cards. a lot more dings and wear, even on the commons.

thinking about it though, it makes sense to list them this way. the people who missed out on the earlier auctions will be more likely to shell out cash even for imperfect cards as the auctions wind down. who knows when they'll be able to find certain summer cards again :-D

I will definitely be involved in thr trop and the hurricane. If I win the hurricane, it'll be number 2, and I'll go for a playset of them. Wish me luck (and a bigger year end bonus).

Best of luck!

I've got my eye on a card, but it won't be any of those 3. I blew my bonus on Wyvern!

I'm interested in seeing what the Trop does since I have one in my Oath Deck. Also guessing my Taiga will be valued around the same as the Bayou or Badlands.
BGS 9+ Alpha set 282/295 (97.29%) Avg 9.41
BGS 9.5+ Beta set 283/302 (93.71%) Avg 9.58
BGS 9.5+ Arabian set 35/92 (38.04%) Avg 9.62
BGS 9.5+ Antiquities set 82/100 (82%) Avg 9.64
BGS 9.5+ Legends set 279/310 (90.00%) Avg 9.61

Probably Bayou, Badlands doesn't really see a large amount of play.

Well, from my point of view, if I saw such huge interest in my auctions going for record prices, I would put whatever I had available up for sale.

My guess is that the seller is currently making profits that would be unmatched by most of our bonuses :)

If you want to see all the cards in more detail just go to any of the auctions and hit the link in the comments .
It's an image shack link to all the cards front and back, you can blow them up too. :wink:
I have enough cards to stack them all up, and commit suicide off the top!

The Badlands is already over 2k. I am excited to see how high this ends up once all the people get their snipe bids in tomorrow.

I'm a bit hesitant to pay 2+k on a badlands that isn't even in the same kind of condition that Sithinfiltrator used to sell though. Not sure if this is actually a good thing for me in general despite the fact that my summer stuff is worth considerably more. I expect summer serendibs could hit 10k now. Anyone disagree?
