Default AMC books and other items + companion material

Right, not sure if I listed everything yet but I'll post the list. If more than one person is interested in a particular items it will go to the highest bidder.

If something has your interest please email or PM me and I'll give you the minimum prices and the cost of postage to your place of the world. After that you can decide whether you are still interested in a purchase.

I'll send/publish pictures when they are asked for.
