Jimmy, you're breaking me, every time I listen to one of your finds in singers I go out and buy their CD. But your taste in music is second to none. Peace brother.
Yep, he found another case alright and I think he's being coached too. He's playing "mistake free" now. Look at the prices for the two books from Nevada.Uh oh. He found another case of books in the crawlspace. What the hell was ER doing fooling around in the crawlspace anyway?? Oh wait I know.. here we go
) Now I guess my asking price of $700 wasn't all that bad, (new books, never viewed) but of course that was then. :sorry
Yep, that was then. The reason I looked at the prices on Amazon was because I was thinking of putting up a set of all 4 Eddie Robin books and was trying to get a general idea of the going prices. It'll be interesting to see if "OnCue" out of Nevada gets his price. $750 for a damaged WOP?. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask.) Now I guess my asking price of $700 wasn't all that bad, (new books, never viewed) but of course that was then. :sorry
WOP has two editions.Humor me...what is the 4th book?
Winning One Pocket
Position Play in 3-C
I have the 3 listed above in great shape and have resisted selliing them, but if they sell for anywhere remotely close to these Amazon prices, they're getting overnighted the minute I get the loot.
See if you can find them. We might dealI purchased both books new about 16 years ago at the US Open One Pocket Tournament in Kalamazoo Mi.
I studied them for a few years and put them away after I sold the Szamboti. No idea where I left them, but I'm sure they're in a box somewhere long gone after one of my many moves across the country...... This thread makes me
The WOP prices seem to be up in the air ever since "OnCue" out of Nevada got in the game. I think "OnCue" is a onepocket.org member and he's being advised by another onepocket.org member. Witness the two misspelled words in one ad. That's a sure sign. I wouldn't go over $300-$350 and then only if I wanted it badly.So what would a First edition WOP with correction sheets, in very good (all intact but obviously read many times) condition be worth on the open market today. (or what should it be worth IYHO)
and what could i expect to pay for a used SMS.
so the first edition doesnt hold any more value then a second edition of equal condition.
250 - 300 is what i figured. just had to ask.
$25 per hour is the best money you'll ever spend on lessons. That was the rate I paid back in 1978 and the difference in my game was tremendous. Good luck.Dennis.,
i have a first edition WOP, inherited from a old friend of mine. Dont think i would ever sell it, unless i could get 5oo+ for it , then its a no brainer.
I really want to get ahold of the SMS. as soon as i free up a couple hundred.
in the meatime im taking lessons (onepocket) from a player that learned from the "philly" guys....all of em.
At the 25$ P H special rate i get .....its worth every penny.
thanks again, WN
