You just have to wait until you see one at your price. I waited through 4 
Azhanti auctions before getting it at the price I wanted. I'm still waiting on 
Hacker. And look for those "8 different RPG books" for $10 deals. I've made 
money enough to support my habit on those. One 23 book lot paid me $70 over 
what I paid. The other online auction places are good places to pick up 
bargains. And, the online stores are not a bad place to shop either. I just got 
a buttload of Space: 1889 stuff from Titan in Shrinkwrap or Mint from their 
discount page. And I'm buying from newsgroups and FLGS Used Bins. 

I guess the point is, no matter what you're trying to find, look in a lot of 
different places: ebay, other online auctions, online stores, local game shops, 
and best of all Garage Sales.
