I am a commercial whore

Well, after looking at my finances, it looks like I'm going to be parting with my collector's edition copy of Surfin' the Highway after all. If any of you guys are interested, you can bid on it at eBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=120013485558 . Or, if you don't take kindly to my blatant profiteering, feel free to delete this thread.

I'll see about taking it off your hands, although I only have a hundred dollars to my name, a down payment (out of my bank account) on my Explorer, supplementry payments to make on auto insurrance, and no job (Feck you Outback Steakhouse).

I might join the bidding war, because the hardcover version probably won't be rendered worthless if Purcell rereleases the comics.

There's a consolation prize to be had, Samnmax! All of the people I know who've ended up working at Outback turned out to be douches. And I wouldn't want that that happening to you!

I just left my job at Citizens Bank, which is why I'm spontaneously poor. Let me tell you, getting yelled at for a living (customer service) is no fun. Keep your money far far away from Citizens Bank! The likelihood that they'll screw up on you is disturbingly high.

I have a Motorola RAZR V3. Which means that in addition to making crystal clear phone calls over Cingular's voice and data network, I can also play True Crime: Streets of LA as well as other award-winning mobile games on the go!

An ignore list isn't going to stop the Army Reserve recruiter (Who I don't even know about) rousting me out of bed at 8 AM to talk about my future.

While you're talking about the future bring up stuff about how high the cost of getting a sex change is "nowadays".

I brought up the "Naval Reserve" and after a few more minutes of arguing he left me alone.

Yeah I guess that works too. I wouldn't know, I have "emotional problems", so I can't be recruited, so they don't bother calling.

They enlarged just fine for me. I don't ever have a problem enlarging.

Except when it happened in the middle of 5th period math class.

As for the auction, yeah I don't know why the "click to enlarge" doesn't work. I added links to the images instead. You can also find a gigantic (5 mpixel) image of the title page here: http://vaio.telekawaru.com/~doomstal.../signature.jpg

Dammit, I guess my only chance of getting it now involves stealing from Samnmax221. Looks like doomstalk should make a pretty penny off of this one though.

Well, it didn't sell at anything that I thought was worth it (the paperback in that condition goes for $75, so a signed hardcover should go for more than $150), so it gets relisted tonight (also so it doesn't end at stupid o'clock again).

I got this nasty message from a guy on eBay (quoted in entirety, including the pidgin English):

Quote:
Yo your a PRICK, making a reserve this high. I contacted purcell himself and he sells books at only 100-120$ I own three of these and the most ive paid is 110$+ shipping and thats with a full front page ART and SIG. you are a sick sick little man. 152$ and not met the reserve last round. GO PUT THIS UP UNDER BUY IT NOW FOR 60000$ if thats what you want. Or look and see the other lame ****s that try to get away with 200-300$ for this book. The have been sitting on buy it now for almost a year. PEACE you lame bastard. Lower your price, steve almost gagged when he heard what you were chargin lol. On another note if you do get your reserve, your still a prick.

Steve
I understand that my asking price is high, but the harcover is damn near impossible to find, let alone with a signature. I don't want to be seen as an opprotunistic jerk, though. What do you think? Is he right?
