In between its seemingly endless roster of CCG articles, the August issue of Scrye did have a nice piece about the recent Kuntz/Collector's Trove auctions. The famous (infamous?) $3,650 sale is mentioned specifically.

It's Scrye #86, if anyone is interested — the cover features Magic:TG (oh, wait, every Scrye features Magic:TG [cue laugh-track].) :) The article is on page 10.

I don't believe that magazine is available to us UK collectors. I'd be most interested in reading the article if anyone could find the time to e-mail me a scan.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

*bump*

I'd still be interested in reading the article if anyone can oblige? Is it online anywhere?

That reminds me, Mike. We'd all love to see pictures of prize piece in it's frame. Maybe we could have an Improv's Den thread? Your collection is hard to rival.

I'm afraid the article isn't online, as Scrye doesn't have an online presence like that... yet.

I'll see what I can do about posting it here... it's just the one article, so I might be able to get away with it, being the fellow what wrote it. :)

Improv...



Thanks! That should be okay... it's far enough along and specifically cut to the new article enough that it shouldn't be a problem...

A large fraction of that was Mike <improv>, although I probably still helped to push up the total by ~$1,500 (other people's money...).

"In a good cause" would be the usual excuse! :P

Have already explained my bid on that, Mike. ;)

There was a danger someone would've gone for the (expected) $450 BIN, which was more than I could justify personally.

Will take my chances on that and if it doesn't work out I've always got the 1973/4 photocopied 2nd print still kicking around for reference. (And I ain't burning that after getting fleeced by the seller who implied it was just a coverless copy and that they were well acquainted with printing tech).



As to those "pushes", yeah I gave you a huge one on the "Tsoj map", but you know I'd've paid that without blinking (to the detriment of my credit card) given the comparison with the module price and "historical" context.
