Now now, Richard, the guy did make us a generous offer: $300 takes it! It's almost 10% of that $2k price, ain't that a sweet deal?

Roger, have you read Steve Forte's article on Erdnase in Genii? It is also available on the Genii archive and may prove illuminating.

Re: 2.5 hours until Derren (UK TV HEADS UP)

The name is "Derren Brown Investigates". He goes around and investigates psychics, ghost hunters, etc. At least that's what I got from the preview I've watched. Since I'm not in the UK though, it'll be at least... uh, a day or two before I can watch the premiere I guess.

Re: Erdnase

Regarding the listing that sold this week, eBay does not have the resources to police every listing to ensure what is pictured is what is as described, that is the sellers responsibility. 100 million listings makes that a pretty difficult task. Of course. Unfortunately, they also don't seem to have...

You may get better luck if you use the right title for the book.

Re: Sad Tom Mullica News

I remember that some of my first magic tapes were the old cigarette magic series from Tom. I had a blast with those, they were as entertaining as they were educational. I still have them at home even though I haven't had a VHS player in years.

Best wishes to you, and a speedy recovery.

Re: Erdnase Deck JUST RELEASED

For what it's worth the decks I bought at D&D look nice, but every single one I opened so far gained a deadly snap crimp very quickly making them nearly unusable to me. I'm curious if others have experienced this.

Re: Ellusionist Rare items for Haiti

You put a lower price to entice more people, but you pump up the shipping as a hidden fee. It's the eBay way.
