Judging by the URL, an Ambidextrous Stork, even rarer a mini than the Vorpal Kitty.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

I think that may have gone for more than $150, I think that was the starting auction price with a Make Offer. Maybe, I think.

I don't know how long this was listed, but it's gone now:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


One of the better-condition ones that's come up.

Indeed, not long I suspect I am not sure if I would have gone in at quite that price (or a nearabouts offer), but they are very hard to find.

Sadly I don’t think I’ll ever get to own one of these.

Not to worry! They do come up (though not in tip-top condition)

For example;

** expired/removed eBay auction **


Plus she_wolf626 had one up recently (cant post a link as they are on the banned list, so I guess, take that auction with a pinch of salt)

I am sure you will get one! Like all this stuff, we may just end up paying more over time...  :cry:

If anyone here won this item from the recent Jim Ward auctions


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I'm very curious to get some more data about the postmark date on the envelope, since it's not very legible in the picture:

I didn’t think I’d ever see one.  Seller says it’s incomplete but possibly only missing handouts?  Anyways I forgot to bid :(


I draw the line at collecting... D&D beach towels.

Well let me say that it went for a very low price... Given current trends, i would have thought it went for more than 1k!

With the module being so rare, I think the fact that it was incomplete scared away some bidders (its rarity allows very few chances to complete the module)

I meant to bid on this again before bed but forgot:  


** expired/removed eBay auction **


It’s not a set of character sheets I’ve seen before; did anyone here pick this up, by chance, and do we have any more info/images about the content of the sheets, and whether the company made others too (NPC sheets, DM Logs, et al)?

Allan, I have never posted on the recent purchases thread (because I know some would resent the frequency) but since you aren't coming to Gamehole Con for me to discuss it with you...
01) I won the Character Sheets you mentioned
02) 4th print white box with the 1976 correspondence (I too think it was Gary who replied)
03) Alderac Atlas that Jolly Blackburn sold about 3 weeks ago
04) Australian Monochrome modules
05) Holmes box in "shrinkwrap"
06) Divine Right in "shrinkwrap"
07) Stormbringer Fertility Rights adventure (and an issue of Ivory Tower)
08) Chainmail 3rd Ed 1st Pr
09) 1983 TSR Press Kit
10) D&D Player & Reader Profile Study from the EGG auctions (plus about 10 other items)
11) Copy #2 of 1000 of Hyperborea 3rd Ed in faux leather
12) Len Lakofka 70pp manuscript printout w/Maps (write-up of 5 towns)
These are the more interesting items that have arrived since Labor Day.


Shrink is not a condition
