Is this two books being represented, or is this a 3rd Gamma with the cover replaced.

Heh, I didn't even look at all the pictures. Frost got his scans mixed up.  The page that says 3rd printing at the bottom is of the PHB, not the DMG. :wink:

Frost posts here from time to time. As a matter of fact he posted this auction in the classified forum. :wink:

I didn't wait for those to come up, either.  The little photo at the top of the auction is definitely a 1st DMG, and a nice looking one, too.  (Already got one!)

I had sent him an email asking him what all was included at least by number. When you find out maybe you could let us know if it was a good deal or not.

I really wanted to place a bid on those sheets for the sake of humor.  :D   After all, I have a 2 + year old daughter who sleeps in a twin bed . . . but I simply didn't like the Jasmine and Rajah sheets . . . especially not for @ $14 once shipping is factored in.  Bratz are out of the question . . .

See if you can find me some Winnie the Pooh sheet sets . . . or maybe something with Tinkerbell.

I'd be willing to shell out a couple of more bucks if the seller had them listed in Roleplaying Games.  8)

Dungeons and Dragons 1st Print | eBay

Er...wrong stock photo, perhaps?

Also: $25 for an Otus-cover Basic Rulebook?!?

Notice also that this guy's name is Titan, but it isn't Titan-Games.  It is Titan-Comics, out of Texas.

I think he really thinks it's a first print.

I think that guy has come up here in the past and IIRC KingofPain indicated that he was also a jack-ass. Must be something in the name. :?
