Selling both of my Sketchbooks... :'(

edited April 2012 in Sam & Max
Money's become far too tight for comfort and I've had to make the decision to sell a load of stuff. I really don't want to see them go, but eating comes first, so I'm selling both Effigy Mound and Age of S&M on eBay. Thought I'd give you guys a heads up because I'd like to see them go to a home as loving as the one they've had with me, and I know you guys and girls here probably love them almost as much as me. :(

The thought of selling the hardcover crossed my mind too, but I have to draw the line there. I'd cry like an infant if I sold that... Hopefully I can get them back one day.



Now have Season 2 Case File up for sale:

And my signed Hardback Surfin' The Highway (#661):

:( At least I could still get the paperback when I get enough money. Good luck guys and gals

    You could probably get a lot for the hardcover,
    but I´ll be the first to "stoke the bidding fire" on these two.

    That's why it crossed my mind, but I'd miss it too much. It means a great deal to me, and while I could get the paperback, it wouldn't be the same. Thanks for the help too, I really appreciate it :)

    Just in case you've not seen, they both end tomorrow. Both currently only at £5 too so it might be your chance to get them nice and non-extortionately ;)

    :eek: I've wanted them so badly for so long. I collect art books and to find the S&M ones finally? I shall make them mine... the race is on!

    Come Hell or high water, I'm getting at least one of these sketchbooks...

    Good luck to everyone else! (And thanks for listing these in the first place, RobD!)

    Final sale on The Age of S&M: $202.42
    Final sale on The Effigy Mound: $77.69

    Man, too rich for my blood... but whoever got them is one lucky dog! So jealous...

    No matter how much I want one of these books, I still can't imagine what would be in there that would make somebody pay that much.

    I don't know if they guy who got them both is on here (same person got both) but if you are, thanks so much for helping me out. Hope you enjoy them :)

    I'm actually seriously considering putting the hardback up for sale now (and a season 2 case file which I forgot I had). I could just get the paperback to replace it as it's still available, and needs come first sadly. :( I don't know if there's interest or not for either, so if you are let me know and I'll put them up too.

    Damn you capitalism! *shakes fist to the sky as voice reverberates dramatically*

    OK, so I made the tough decision. I'm selling the Hardback and Season 2 Case File. Really makes me sad, but it's the sensible grown up thing to do...

    Surfin the Highway:

    Season 2 Case File:

    Hope they get all the loving they deserve in their new homes. Good luck to everyone interested :)

    Holy shit. I knew the sketchbooks were valuable, but I didn't think they were THAT valuable. I own The Age of S&M and the Effigy Mound as well... Thinking about putting them on ebay now... :S I wonder how much I could get for the Season One case file too. I'd think it totally worth it to sell them to buy that Sam & Max Statue... hmmm.
    I don't really like owning things that are too valuable like certain books etc... It makes me feel like I can't touch them for feel of devaluing them. Then again, I've barley touched the sketchbooks regardless.
    I don't think I could sell my hardcover Surfin' the highway though.

    It's just a pity I can't afford either of them. :(
