I exchanged emails with someone over the summer looking for a bill scape.

I have found mind and would like to continue that conversation. So, if you are he, email me again.

if anyone is looking for something specific, is there a thread for that? I may be willing to clear out a few items.

I also have a frame of destruction and believe some people were interested in that at one time.

I collect Tenyo for the design and ideas and am less 'attached' to them as other items I collect.

I have an "Ultimate Marked Deck" in like-new condition. Infinitely more versatile than Billscape, and also out of production. It's yours for the exact same price ($1600)! PM me if interested...

Billscape is right, from your wallet to his.

Remember, worth and value are two very different things.

Billscape DOES NOT carry a valuation of $1600, but it's worth whatever someone is willing to pay for it.

I'm betting good money that was a shill bid in effort to drive prices up. I've seen it done a thousand times on eBay.

Humorous nonetheless!

I can't help but to find it truly amazing that someone will fork out that kind of money for a Billscape. The only thing I come up with is that they have lots of money and won't miss the $1600. I guess if you are rich, you can spend whatever you have to in order to obtain whatever you want. Must be nice...

I don't think it sold. It just says that it ended.

But Tenyo auctions have gotten crazy prices similar to that in the past.
