I actually have this. WELL worth going for - I got it ridiculously cheaply a few years ago.... £25 as I recall...

One of my finest moments as a collector....:ok

Gregory, I HATE when you do this.
:f

"A few years ago" indeed. 

Or perhaps...  that was when £25 bought a small estate outside of Twillingsbeak-On-Duckpond in Northwestern Kent?

Actually not quite that long ago. 1992. That estate was a whole £57.20.

But to make you feel worse, - I just checked my records and it wasn't £25 at all, it was just .............

$25. As in DOLLARS. USD. Greenbacks. :D :x

I got mine in an estate sale of 11 rare decks.  Averaged out, it was US$60.  Can't say fairer than that.  It is my all time and forever bestest deck.  The backs are pukey-awful, but who cares.  It is a wonder in every way. 

If only I could produce a deck of that quality.  It'll never happen (in this lifetime), but one can dream.  What's that saying about - Shoot for the moon and hit a tree - ?  Feel sorry for the tree, but ......:m.  No rhyme nor reason for that rabbit ... just needed one.

Ok, how does someone hear about estate sales?  I only hear about them when they are auctioned off on Ebay, and then I go broke!

Well, that is actually my question too.. what kid of stash he has. It almost looks like he used the first auction to determine the asking price.

I guess that's a pretty good way to go about it, but if we (the buyers) knew there was a whole bunch of them coming on the market, we probably wouldn't pay that much.

PS-Truelight, I LOVE your avatar/icon!

Yeah, but at least it's a better price than the over 200 I dished out.  So don't think of us as a bad influence, but only someone who wants everyone else to be as broke as we are!

I spent the evening reminding myself of how much I disliked the Divine Comedy but still want the deck this morning... so that ploy didn't work.

I'm a sucker for Italian decks... a sucker without disposable income that is.

Well, I guess it is safe to say that this guy does have a stack of them. I guess this will also influence the collectability of the Dante... I can imagine that LaLuna and Skad1 are thinking something like this now:ww

On ebay the same seller as before has yet  put another copy up for sale ( 160241955264 ).
I wonder how much he/she must have (had) ...

I was lucky enough to win that last one and it appears I got a bargain as he has listed yet another copy (160245376749) although this time with a much higher staring bid, euro 240, or £188, $373!

Looking at his feedback history he has listed at least eight of these decks since the end of February.
