Today I was looking through some prices on amazon.com for 1e books. What did I notice since the announcement of the 1E reprints by WOTC? Prices on the rise, I mean like outrageous prices. Not only that, but used book prices are pushing up. After hearing from various people there used book orders had been returned, I went on amazon and ordered a ad&d 1e phb, dmg, and mm. All prices had been under $7, and I made sure to note the company names. Sure enough, a day later my orders were refunded, and canceled. What the hell? Do these people really think because the reprints are going for so much, they can jack up the prices of these old musty used books? I indirectly blame Wizards for this, because they knew, doing what they would, would only inflate the current market prices. Anyone who says they wouldn't is a liar. So the prices have gone up,for a book that doesn't compare to the shit being rolling out by wizards, or ccp, or any company...quality style wise. Now a new person looking at this, is like why should I pay $35 for a book from the 80s with just type and line art, when I can buy a full color fancy book? It's simple they don't. Thanks again, WOTC!
