Missing a Meisha Merlin/Sub Press numbered or lettered ed?
Posted 17 July 2011 - 07:53 PM
Probably a total shot in the dark, but I'm looking for the 'Y' lettered edition of "A Game of Thrones". I have all the other books for that letter. Whoever did buy it didn't buy the subsequent books.
So, any help locating this would be appreciated.

First four numbered limiteds for 10,000.00?!
I mean, if the lettered limiteds haven't sold for that...
If only I had the cash, those lettered editions would be mighty tempting, but the numbered? Not quite.

Yes, this is extremely unrealistic. Though the description states these are a matching set of number #441 and some or all of the boxes are unopened, that's not rare enough to justify price. The person who placed this listing must not have kept up with any previous listings of numbered editions, much less the current lettered matching set that is listed for $9,999.99 and has yet to receive a single bid on repeated listings. If per chance matching sets of these deluxe editions do begin buying and selling at these prices, I doubt I will ever afford one.

The situation (for me anyways) was resolved, as I got my money back. It's too bad, as I've been looking for a numbered copy of AGOT for awhile now.
Hopefully this situation gets resolved for boiled leather and hopefully no one else is scammed.
I also got scammed by this guy. What a scum bag. I sent him the money and asked about a tracking code. Told me it was sent via general delivery and not too worry because he had just sent one to Ontario and there was not any problems. That was the last I had heard from him. Luckily Paypal's claim system works but you would think that after receiving multiple claims for the same account they would terminate it.

I am the original owner of these books, and this auction also includes my "right" to the future "MM" volumes- I will write Sub Press and ask them to give the winner of this auction continued right of first refusal to the remaining "MM" books in the set.
Only one day and 3 hours left and no bids. I know I can't afford them. As stated before, I would be surprised if some fan or collector with the funds doesn't bite on these. A complete lettered deluxe set is the rarest of the rare for the GRRM collector. I can't be the only person drooling over this.
And just like that, it's gone

Wow, someone actually bit. A complete lettered set sold for $10k! Insane. That should get the attention of some GRRM collectors. Can't say I wouldn't have done the same had I had the realistic means to afford it. Ah well, might be someday I can...

Someone from the UK is selling #71 on ebay. You could turn the "1" into a "6".

Poor guy who owns #71 of the others! lol but the 1 would be almost impossible to turn into a 6

After getting that set I now have a spare Clash of Kings #303 from Meisha Merlin I will be selling eventually. And a "PC" copy of Feast for Crows I'll give up if I ever get the numbered FFC I want.

Cool, will do. (I tried to send a PM but don't seem to be able to.)

Ha. I'm going to try and get a lettered Dance if possible, as well as the follow-up Game and Clash from Sub Press. I wish myself luck that I can find a willing seller for Storm and Feast. I mean, if they bought Storm and/or Feast and not Dragons they should be willing to sell, right? Unless they already resold. Or were just a huge Tom Canty/Charles Vess fan. We shall see. might never be an issue.
