|Silver Anniversary Collector's Edition|
As a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Tactical Studies Rules (1974-1999), TSR released a "collector's set" of some of the most popular and best-selling D&D material.
Only 5,000 copies of this set were printed, and first offered at the 1999 GenCon convention (where many were sold, for $59.95 retail).
The boxed set contains the following reprints, which are identical to the originals aside from the addition of a TSR Silver logo to the lower cover:
The set also contains the following original items, available nowhere else:
None of the materials in the set were shrinkwrapped.
Contrary to rumor, none of the reprinted modules are missing any artwork,
nor does the set include any kind of button. Also of interest: the
original layout negatives of the modules were not available for the reprint,
so TSR's graphic designers were forced to re-create the modules by hand
(with the aid of digital scanners, to be sure).
Only 5,000 Silver Anniversary Collector's Editions were printed.
Newman for the scan of the set cover, to Norbert Jakobs for the
scan of L3, and to Bruce Robertson for the scans of B2,
G1, G2, G3, I6, and S2.
Unopened specimens of this set are becoming increasingly harder to come by, as many greedy sellers are removing the shrinkwrap in order to auction L3 Deep Dwarven Delve separately.
