With the price on the cover, wouldn't this be a 4th minus?

I swear I never get that right.  :evil:   I could have swore the 4th printing 1975 was an indication of the "fourth print".  I think either A) I am f*cking stupid or b) Foul keeps changing the site on me.  My guess is option A. :roll:

Nah, come on, that can't be the case!   :D

Does anyone know if the so-called 4th really even exists?

I've recently contacted the two people who supposedly had the 4th print, to reconfirm -- both have said they actually have 4th Minus prints.  Therefore, unless someone comes forward shortly with a confirmed 4th, that print will be eliminated and the 4th Minus will be moved up to 4th.

Much though I'm loathe to see my "rare" "hybrids" (three sets only noted) downgraded, all I can say is thanks for that long-overdue fix... :)
Glad I wasn't holding my breath, though! *jk*


Still fairly convinced the earliest "4th-" copies (released) went out without that address label at the back, rather than being an oversight, given that the only copy I've seen was with that "fine print" box;
Post research tidbits here • Page 3 • Collecting General •  The Acaeum

And, of course, am also still dubious about the reading of that 25,000 copies quote, per. OD&D Box Set Research. • Collecting Appraisal •  The Acaeum
(Anyhow, that was the first thing that drew my attention to the 4th-/4th situation being impossible; if the latter had 25,000 copies and all I kept turning up was yet more 4th-s. Similarly 25,000 doesn't work too well given the apparent 4th-/5th ratio).

=
Will you be making any other minor tweaks to the OD&D list, in passing?

If so (in addition to the ongoing 1stV & OCE games), there are a few bits-and-pieces might be "nice to have", phps.
*
- The comparison points on the listings look a bit unwieldy, although I can see why they're written thus. The stock lists provide a far quicker cross-check on the printings, IMO (especially the diceset prices).
- 3rd and 4th- (sic) prints /only/ have "(c) 1975" in M&M.
- For the 5th, it wasn't just the typeset that was changed; there was a general overhaul, too, such as the revised map on page 4 of U&WA and incorporation of the errata text (separate sheet in the 2nd/3rd print and on the front (previously blank) page of the ref sheets for the 4th-, per first (11171) link above).
- aside: What was the derivation of the 12/75-4/76 date for the 5th? Am still trying to tie that into Eldritch Wizardry (4/76) being present on the stock list with a price, rather than "coming soon!"... (unless /someone/ has a copy which states otherwise. *looks hopefully at <Deimos>*)
- OCE- plus one Balrog in addition to that hobbit, in all copies afaik (in addition to that other issue with the 5th throwback pages, etc.)
- and aside, again: cross-checking the stock list of the 2nd OD&D with T1st Greyhawk certainly makes it look as though Greyhawk wasn't out until around April/"Spring". Feb '75 in the intro can be ignored, unless you want to change the 1st OD&D to Nov '73, too.

Okies, enough for now. Take or leave as you will! ;)


=
Hrmm... so does that mean I've got /all/ the currently known listed and unlisted variants, now that the 4th is vanishing? *shuffles unhappily*
Well, aside from <Deimos>'s early 5th and the intermediate 5th/OCE white box, that is.

Am sure there are still more lurking out there (especially amongst the OCEs).
*looks around some more....*

Not sure what insight I can provide there.  The only difference between the 5th and mine on that page seems to be that in the normal 5th, the products list is printed at a horrible angle.  In mine it's set much straighter.  The actual text is identical.  (Eldritch is listed for $5.00).

Well, No more fooling around with the kiddie bids in hopes of keeping it low. Not much more to do now except to wait around for a2jeff to come along and snipe me.

The guy just told me he'd let me close it w/a $500 BIN.  Should I take it?

I am now really confused by the current high bidder, even more so than I was about the previous one. Maybe I am missing something. :?

Well, I've got my suspicions, but they're completely harmless.  Man, I actually feel bad for you, honestly.  That was a close one.  But there will be others, no doubt, and then you'll feel vindicated when you make that smoking post on "recent fun finds".

*nod nods* Yes, indeed; totally revised.
Was a good guess if so. :D

(The previous version of that page is even less readable! *g*).

Yeah, that early 5th of your's seems to have /much/ better registration than all the "other" copies.

Pity about the stock list being the same.
Causes more grief that (with regards the dating), IMHO, but is nothing new for the OD&D sets. ;)

Thanks for checking! :)

Seller has lots of cool stuff. Several early Dragons including 1-8 , 1st or 2nd Print World of Greyhawk Folio, OD&D Men & Magic booklets 2nd/3rd/& fifth prints, 1st print Greyhawk(not T1st), Blackmoor, Eldritch Wizardry 3rd print, 3 Supermodules, etc......

eBay listings

Granted a lot of it is not in that great of condition, but still pretty rare just the same. :wink:

Heh, heh... seller listed the rest whilst my email was sat in their in-tray (25 minutes after the M&Ms auction start). Guess that means they're not interested in a BIN, or else have already been flooded. Know the feeling? :P

Those early Dragons are three-hole punched, btw. ;)
