Hello, all!

I've been reading the Acaeum for quite a while now, having been pointed to it by another collector.

I have to admit, I'm more of a completist than a true collector.  I don't go (far) out of my way for better condition.  The only box set I have is an OCE (hangs head in shame).  I do however, have nearly all of the readily-available stuff in my D&D/AD&D collection--including nearly ALL products not on the "rares" page.  

I also own a game store, and I was about to prepare a "beginning your collection" type article for my next e-mail.  What do you guys recommend as easily-obtainable starting places?

Lloyd,

Foulfoot (Acaeum owner) published an excellent article on how to start collecting. Check out the article, it's a great help:

Thanks, Ralf.  That article's not exactly what I want, but it's worth a few notes.  For one thing, as a retailer, I don't want to encourage people to go hunt eBay for items they could be buying in my store.  

BTW, ever been to Der Spieleladen in Hannover?

No, too far up north. However the forum member frankfromgermany surely was there, he is from Hannover.

Welcome to the boards Lloyd!
As Ralf said I`m from Hannover and I`ve been a regular in that shop and spent a lot of money there. Sadly they had to close last year.   Why do you ask?

Dirk was a friend of mine.  We met through e-mail after he read something I wrote for Dragon, hooked up at GenCon a couple of times.  He's a great guy.  I was very sad to hear he had to close his store.
