  • W.O.P. Prices Going Up

    This is the very definition of "overly optimistic". It's a current ad on Amazon.

    It's odd that the 1st book is for sale from Nevada.

      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.

        P.S. This is from today on Amazon. This is for Winning One Pocket.

          ) Now I guess my asking price of $700 wasn't all that bad, (new books, never viewed) but of course that was then.

            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.

              Humor me...what is the 4th book?

              Winning One Pocket

              Shots, Moves,...

              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.

                WOP has two editions.

                  I 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

                    I sure hope that Germany gets his price. Maybe I can retire early

                      Me too.

                      How about the 3.99 shipping listed next to that price? Too funny.

                        See if you can find them. We might deal

                            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.

                            Thx, WN

                              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.

                              No need to buy a used copy of S,M,& S, there is a new one for sale for $200 (today) on Amazon. That is reasonable and if I didn't have 7 of them (4 new) I would snatch it up. I still might.

                              No collection would be complete without ER's 3-Cushion book and there are two for sale today also on Amazon. These books usually go fast from what I've seen and they command the $350 prices.

                              Anyway, just my opinion but I wouldn't pay more than $200 for a new S,M,& S as long as they are for sale for $200. I wouldn't pay more than $350 for a WOP in good shape if I wanted it. I already have the 3-Cushion book so I don't want it but I wouldn't go over $350 or so for it.
