Poop on eBay. I know the seller, so I don't need them. It was removed from eBay because I bought it.
Well, that is what collectors do, but thanks for your concern. It isn't going anywhere, though.
Some collectors love an item and are fine paying a premium to get it right now. Not sorry.
Some people want an item because they hope to get more for it later. Your last comment suggests you're in this camp. No problem.
I have the book and the seller has some money. Win, win. I hope you guys are able to get your copies for a price you can accept if they come up.
