Maybe its the name "Mike". I know of at least 2 other folks around here with the name Mike that have seriously large collections. :wink:

I think Howard is dumping one of these about once year or so. He sold one within the last 8 months or so. We had an email exchange as I also worked for MDG at the time, and I haven't seen him in more than 20 years. Nice guy.



I am guessing it will go for around $1,350.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

The second GenCon auction copy would've done me. (Ever so slight premium for "mint", there).

I wish I knew who "Howard" is.   :(



How 'ard would it be for one of you to tell me?    :?



Who is he, please?      :?:

Not a good bclarkie day. :oops:   I hadnt even looked at the auction again before I put my previous post. :oops:  Dude, $1,601.45!!! 8O   Well that eliminates any inklings I had of placing another bid in there at the end.   :roll:

Who are these people anyway?? 1st some guy named gutboy.barrellhouse with a 7 feedback wins the 1st/2nd print woody auction for a seeming ridiculous price and now some mark11777 guy shows up and has this Tsojconth auction at a riduclous price. WFT?!

And I get stirred by you guys for my bids  8O  Hell, I am tame compared to these.

The cover fold is 90% intact, with the exception of the tear on the bottom and a smaller one threatening to break in the centre. It is not "torn in half" ;)  And that was scary how fast you noticed the auction!

Just happened to come on as you posted your link. :wink:



*<seriously considers placing a bid>*



BTW, I knew you had this, but 2 questions. 1) Where did you happen to find this one? 2) How come you are selling it (you dont have to answer this if its for personal reasons :) )?

Found it in London, Ontario, the same used bookstore where I picked up the "5A" white box...evidently an early player of the game resided there, I believe his(her?) name was Robin Downs.  Unable to find more info on that person, unfortunately.



I've been planning on selling it for a while, actually, just waiting for the right time.



It doesn't "match" the rest of my collection in many ways, and hopefully the sale will help fund the rest of my collecting for a while...I vastly prefer stuff I can be comfortable flipping through, I'm always afraid to breathe on this one.  It will be missed, though.

That is one hell of a Fun Find though Huh?! :o :D

Understandable there. Nothing like trying to flip through a book that is worth several hundred dollars, hoping you dont have a "clumsy" moment: "Whoops, there goes that page :oops: " *<cuts value of book in half due to own stupidy>* :x

:( :( :(

Hopefully though, the lucky winner will be from here and you will know it will not be lost to the depths of time. Maybe it'll be me. :wink:
