    To paraphrase Holofernes:

    If you want to sell on-topic, Pirates related stuff here in the forums (versus on Bay), or want an opinion on what xyz collection or set is worth, or want to buy or trade something… post it to this thread instead of starting a new one, to keep the forums market free. Then those who want to buy and those who want to sell can have a place to do so in peace. Or in strife, whichever is more piratey.

    Alright, looks like it’s time for the annual Black Friday week sale at Hill’s Wholesale Gaming! (HWG)
    http://www.wholesalegaming.biz/pirates/

    As of this post, 4 items marked down a decent amount; RV is probably the best deal of those that are on sale. (they used to sell OE for $38/36 packs, so that one isn’t as good in hindsight, but still nice)

    No idea if any of these will change throughout the week(end), but I think last year it remained pretty consistent. This is almost always the best time to buy from them all year.

    Is Hill’s Wholesale Gaming trustworthy? I’ve seen a lot of complaints online about orders never being shipped and bad customer service. As far as I’ve seen, their item descriptions are not great, and they haven’t answered any of my calls or emails asking for details on an item. I only have experience buying from eBay and locally, but I’m hoping to grab some good deals on Wholesale Gaming. I’m just hesitant to place an order due to what I’ve read. Does anyone have experience with HWG?

    I’ve bought two 36 pack boxes, a OE mega pack, and unrelated CCG boxes from them and they’ve arrived on time, undamaged and otherwise in a satisfactory condition.  I trust them completely, especially since most of the posts you’re talking about later go on to say that their orders were eventually placed and were backed up in the first place only because of an item shortage on their end.

    I bought from RainTyger the other day. Let’s see how they do.

     

    Fun fact I apparently ordered something from them when I was 14 and never paid. I tried to sign up and they told me I’d already made an account… then I saw confused messages from them asking if I was gonna pay or if they should cancel my order /facepalm

    Yes!  I’ve bought from them multiple times with good experiences.

    They are great as well!  🙂

    I’m on the hunt for a few items from MI: Mobilis, Eileen O’Brien, HMS Zephyr, and Hermoine Gold. If anyone sees them for ~7.50 at most let me know!

    Looks like RainTyger has Zephyr and HGold for <$7.50, I didn’t look anywhere else.

    The quoting system doesn’t work well right now, possibly because of the Visual vs. Text editors being different.  It’s one of many things I hope to fix in the future.

    The best way to still be able to quote someone’s post is to paste as plain text with ctrl+shift+v instead of ctrl+v. (on a PC anyway)

    What luck! Just messaged the guy on reddit.

    I just spent twice as much on ebay for some of the things he’s selling -_-

    Ooh, I’m very sorry to hear that. I use the Miniature Trading website to get my stuff. I took one look at the price of a single fort in EBay and I hauled out of there. Upwards of $15 for Fortaleza Dorada, $27 for Harbinger, $14 for a couple mixed named crew… This hobby would have been prohibitively expensive had it not been for the dudes at MT, and the sellers at Wholesale.

    Ok so since MT is about gone, and I was just starting to get into a nice upswing dealing there, here will be my first attempt at seeing if my google doc link will work and deal from here.

    I do have a small (<50 items) wants tab and will trade well for them but most of this will be for sales. I do try and buy lots at very low pricing and try to pass that mostly on with my singles pricing. Not everyone wants to buy a large lot for a few cards and I try and accomadate.  Feel free to PM me here or contact me through FB messenger via the FB sell/trade group.

    (Ben: Let me know if this isn’t ok with you.)

    It’s awesome; exactly what this thread is for!  😀

    What does “built in tower” mean?  I can see everything fine but I’ve never seen the format of a google spreadsheet look like that.  (not sure if it’s the settings you have enabled)

    Built in tower means my collection copy is built instead of unpunched and stored in the ship tower. Still working on that list.

    Never messed with Goggle docs before so not sure on settings. Just dumped my excel file into it and deleted some of the tabs I didn’t need to share. Figure I’ll make some adjustments as I play with it.

    Can anyone help me find any of the following?  I’m looking to buy.  I know some of them are long shots, but I’d appreciate any help whatsoever, even if it is just for one thing. I don’t care if they have been punched out or used as long as nothing is broken and they have all the pieces/cards.  Message me if you have any and we will see if we can work something out. Thanks in advance

    I won an auction for several Jade 6-masters recently, but to get it I had to pay for a duplicate Grand Path. I kind of need to recoup that portion of the purchase price.

    I know the big Jade ships are getting harder and harder to find, so I figured I’d give folks here first crack at it before listing it back on eBay. Effectively I had to pay $25 for it, so that’s what I’m looking to get back. If that interests you, shoot me a message.

    I keep wondering if kelz0r.dk might have some stock left.  It’s a site I found while doing some online “digging” as I am wont to do every few months or so (really crazy what you can find sometimes if you look hard/long enough).  There were various posts at MT in 2017 or 2018 talking about how they had sold most of their stuff to DAcardworld, but a lot of stuff is still listed… I also remember someone (selvaxri perhaps) trying to order stuff from them, but it didn’t work because they were out of stock or something.  If anyone wants to re-plunge into the mystery, there could be some really good prices….

    HWG is now selling OE at $2/pack.  Used to be $38 for 36 packs.  But the Plunder Pack is now on sale for $35.

    The increased price of OE at HWG has made me wonder if they’re finally starting to run out….
    (from $38 for 36 packs a few years ago, I think $54 earlier this year and now $72)

    I’ve been considering parting with a number of extras I have from the Spanish Main set, most of which are from the original PS/ES/SS serial set. I have most non-punched cards and also a number of punched ones. Not yet sure if I plan to part with them as a group or singles, but in any case do we have anything on values for this set?

    #9856

    There are a few prices for Spanish Main partial sets in my eBay history spreadsheet, but most of them were from a while back.  The first edition would probably command a little more money than unlimited, but I don’t think a lot more.

    Whether punched or unpunched, any 5 masters from that set might do pretty well as singles.

    Could you update your rules thread to mention this thread, and its purpose.

    I read the rules, not random posts.

    Also sticky this to the top.

    I think the stickies are fine as-is.
