Wow, I never thought the Misty would go for that much.

Good win on the PotVQ David. Looking forward to the continued comparative analyses on versions and print sequencing investigation.

Good to get a Misty....finally!!  :lol:

Don't suppose you'd take a swap for my what-was-stated-to-be-near-mint copy, and a bundle of cash? :lol:

Pete provided enough information to convince me on the 1974 date. I only asked the last batch of questions and received a long (and friendly) response a few hours before auction close, since I'd been holding for IO.
The cover sheet "date" was still a source of concern; as was the (presumably absent) copyright sheet date.

I suspect the printing differences between the first few prints might be too small and copies too difficult to pin down that provenance is going to be a key factor.
For example, if this copy is missing the June 1976 copyright sheet- as it should be- if it were to turn up in a GenCon auction it would be "condemned" as incomplete.
*
Beyond that, I'm most definitely sticking with the black folder as the "gold standard" for obvious reasons.
And I can't recall whether Brad (Morno) was stated to have (m)any confirmable early prints... If so, I'm looking very silly.

(Without the provenance and asserted earlier printing, my bid would've been ~$500-550 had I been bidding (not!)).

Just my current thoughts and what I've extracted from Pete's responses, anyhow... I certainly don't have the whole picture.

No probs, Jeff! Will be a good companion volume to his personal Character Archaic. *eyes jealously*

You've saved me from the dilemma of deciding whether to ask Pete if he would sign the Misty, had I won.

Dwarven Glory - check out his other auctions as well - loads of odds and ends including several fanzines.
Interested to know where this lot came from - ebay id doesn't put him down as a gamer but I haven't done any research/asked any questions


Heh, I am pretty happy with this. Granted its clearly not in perfect condition, but I am content just the same. :D Now if Weewarriors will send me a second chance offer on that Misty Isles I got blown away on last night. :wink:

You remember that test I did a few days ago to see how reliable eBay was at manually sniping in the last few seconds... :(

This is becoming a habit, Al. :?
