My best e-bay find!!!!
Not only did you knock him down in price but you then told him how much it was really worth. Eek

Even i wouldn't have gone that far. Big Grin

Great finds on the Cleese & Barker, Paul Thumb Up
Wish I had a local shop - or even a shop within a 25 mile radius would be something

There's one in Bedford (or there used to be one at least). And there's one in Watford called Calamity Comics.

There used to be a comic and Cards shop in Bedford that I know of which sadly closed a few years ago. There is just a comic shop now, no cards.
And there was a market shop in Luton taht closed.
I might just take a trip down to Watford and take a look at calamaty.
There is also a Trek shop in St Albans I need to check out, see if they have cards.

If the Watford branch is like the Harrow one, Calamity won't have trading cards except on occasion. Cards generally don't sell for them. They will order boxes for you if they're available through Diamond - though at retail price.

The shop in St Albans is Chaos City Comics and, I believe, Dave Gibbons's local shop. I've never been there so I don't know what it's like.

Oh, The one I'd heard about in St Albans is Totally Trek Sci-Fi Collectables.

Thanks Tim! Yes, very cool in all respects Drool I've been trying to put together an auto set of every cast member that has signed for the X-Files: no Chris Carter and no repeat signers. Having got Patrick now I just need Mitch Pileggi, Burt Reynolds & Brendan Beiser and I'm done. Dance

Complete set of Buffy Sugar Puff Morphers (15) for about $26.

I don't know how well I did price-wise but I have been searching for these for quite awhile and it was nice to see a set offered on the 'bay. Smile

I have no idea how well you did pricewise either, but it's always a good buy when you get something that you have had difficulty finding.
