I was vascilating on the thread in which to post this... not that I was in the running, but it seems like a pretty tremendous pick up:

1st Woodgrain, 1st Greyhawk, 2nd Chainmail, etc, all from the original owner.

Good question. Is the beaten-up woodgrain box by itself worth ~$1,250-1,500 nowdays?

I did put the item in my watching list early this morning, nearly certain it was listed with an auction format only.
Tonight, the listing is ended with a BIN price of only £7. 8O
I've just asked to the seller if it sold, yes it sold. Strangely, the seller told me that price was not a great concern, being aware of the rarity of the item.
I should have placed my bid immediately. :(
Surely the deal of the month for the buyer, maybe a member here or a reseller ?

Yup. There was somebody else selling them too. I got mine for less than $40 late last year. Didn't one go for just $30 recently?

... why are these so expensive/in demand?


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

Limited print run?  Didn't another book, usable for the next BECMI expansion render this one obsolete (or less useful)?  That's what I remember anyway.

In my case, it's because they depict the adventurers about to enter the T1 Moat House.  I'm not even interested in the contents, just the cover ;)

Plus a very good return on the first Pacesetter PotVQ (lucky for those who received the copies they'd paid for):

About time for some decent prices on those two of Rob's, hopefully not dissuading anyone from playing theirs. ;)
(Unlikely to be high due to being a UK sale as the previous (Runic) copies in the UK went low despite being advertised here, too).

I was going to add "just like last time": those two sales seem to go hand-in-hand, but I'd've been in danger of repeating my "lucky for those who received the copies they'd paid for" comment. Although I guess ~$105 for one spine-creased copy when purchased new seems almost reasonable now? ;)
