If you could have any RPG collectable excluding unique items like original art or manuscripts, what one item would you love to find under the Christmas tree?

I'd dress up as Santa and spend a day at the mall for a 1st edition Chainmail  8O

I know what grodog and ajeff would want under their trees  :D

The poor condition duct-taped red-box basic rulebooks which I highlighted with pink & green highlighter.  (My first D&D item.)  I'd have to be that specific copy to be of any value, though.

I was just shipped one in about that same condition last week. I could easliy apply duct tape and highlighting, or ship the box set as is along with several strips of tape and two highlighters for you to apply as needed....

Only one penny.. :roll:  ...Plus a couple bucks shipping of course.:twisted:

Sometimes I am far too impulsive with trades...... :cry:
I had one a month ago in near mint condition, and I traded it away.
I may never see another one, especially in that condition.

I got lots of stuff for it and I was NOT taken advantage of at all....
I just really do miss it..... :)

I did the same sort of trade several years ago with a Mint condition 1969 Topps Rookie Football card of Brian Piccolo..... They are VERY tuff to find in that condition. In fact, I have never seen another one in such nice shape.

I traded a bunch of newer rookie cards for it,  :D and then a year later I for some stupid reason traded it back to the same guy for some other cards,  8O and then several years later I got it back in a mass purchase from the same guy.... 8O  8O  
In that purchase I got all of his football cards, including the ones I had traded to him to get the Piccolo that first time. I will never let it go again.....

Will I never learn my lesson? :roll:  :(

One penny for two highlighters?  My office will be placing an order for several hundred thousand highlighters shortly. :)

As far as the basic set is concerned, it would have to be my original copy.  And I'd have to be 8, so a time machine would be required as well.

BTW….I forgot to mention there are two rules to the Time Machine. #1 no removing any RPG items from the past including and sorry to say deimos any personal D&D items :( . Because doing so it will cause a rift in time 8O . #2 no going forward in time past the time of departure, so there's no taking advantage of knowing the future values of any RPG collectable :twisted: .

Enough said; enjoy you're trip :D .

Well, I'm back.  What a rush!  I don't think I did anything terribly bad to space-time, but I did convince them to change the original boxed set to have a "woodgrain" look instead of that god-awful fuchia & teal plaid design they were going to go with...you're welcome.  :P
