Hey all, in lieu of Stormber's private sale for a 1st print woodgrain box set( viewtopic.php?p=23611#23611 ), it made wonder who on this board actually currently owns any of the woodgrain sets. So lets see what you all have. :wink:

You didn't add both "printings" of the 1st. ;)
Don't know which one Paul has up for sale just now.

(Remembering when Scott advised mix-and-match booklets after all that hassle with the variant print, but don't remember any follow-up that the other volumes had slightly different covers, too, per the intended follow-up to my post last month; Re: OCE question
Was kinda hoping someone might be able to confirm that point...).

Well, if I had one you'd have to pry it loose from my dead hands before I could afford to separate myself from it...  :wink:

If you played with one, it sure brings back memories.  That is why I kept my set when I sent alot of other stuff off to Paul.

Glad to be back.  Shakespeare & Co. Bookstore (the big English language store in Paris, huge new and used collection) didn't have any D&D stuff, they'd gotten rid of it several years back as worthless.  I noted the current prices and they'll be on the look-out.

The little booksellers had all sorts of stuff though, mostly pulp.


Regards,



Stephen

I have one and a half (sans box) 3rd printings.

The boxed set is more masking tape than box though. :cry:

And the woodgrainless 3rd print will probably end up on eBay.

Oooooooh, this auction is really tempting. If I sold off all my AD&D and Cthulhu collection (and spares) I might be able to afford this... It is a LOT easier to store one small brown box than 200+ books. :roll:

Impressive !
As I belong to the miserable majority :( , my question is : how did you get this stuff ?
Is it yours -are you the original owner ?
Get by auction at a convention ?
Found by chance in public sales -sorry donnot find the right word : when people sell their own old stuff to empties their house ?
Found in a shop at low price ?
Get on ebay at market price ?
... or Santa Claus perhaps ?

I've owned a few, but unless you get lucky and/or spend a lot, you had to get them before the collecting craze.

I got my 2nd print off the auctions over at Amazon.com back in 2000.
Paid just over $100 for it and a bunch of first pring supplements :)

Sure, rub it in!  Probably nearly impossible to pull off these days...

Bought my second print off a friend for $5 about 15 years ago.
