You know David, I have answered over 200 messages in the last 5 days, your's was the only 6 part, measured to the .25 mm, "oh and by the way, compare to your *other* four 1st prints" questions. 8O To be honest I didn't think you were bidding, only that you were doing more research.

I only check on the Acaeum for questions that I think are critical to the success of my auctions (when I am busy running them). Your questions seemed pedantic in relationship to the auction and, while I intended to answer them, they seemed to not be top priority during a very busy time.

Sorry for my misunderstanding your intents.

So whether you choose to bid or not (This thread has a lot of bidding-blackmail in it doesn't it?) I will give you the answers I would have given as a point of research anyway.

Thanks for those answers, Paul.

Yeah, those are all the reasons why I only asked the first question in my message privately via eBay last Thursday.
The other questions were points that would clarify/tidy up any issues as a result and since the auction was running out of time I had no choice but to bundle those in together, here.
(Asking for measurements to the nearest 1/4 mm was pushing my luck, though! ;))

Certainly not pedantic and with direct input to the snipe I had placed, depending on the responses.

Wouldn't have expected many other people to think up some of those questions, anyhow (and whether they were/are actually significant or not is still not certain). Had covered some of the points with Mike/<IO>, before (wherever he is now... :()

David, I'm glad you asked them; and Paul, thanks for the detailed responses and for posting them for us all to see.  

I had wondered about the curling.  I've never seen a woodgrain D&D set, but do have a 1st M&M and am aware of course of its dimensions.  Having had a woodgrain Tractics, I also noticed that box was shorter than the white D&D boxes.  So, I've been wondering for a while whether the Tractics and D&D woodgrain boxes have the same dimensions, and if so, whether the D&D booklets would be a tight fit in the woodgrain box.

*g*. Will be expecting something to rival the J. Paul Getty, then! :P

(Noticed he hadn't purchased anything of eBay recently, either. Am sure some of that stuff must've been worth a bid :?)

well building a museum must be very time consuming and of course, you shouldnt complain as you get a free rein on your snipes :)

By the way, why is the Gypsy auction moving so much more slowly this time than last time:

Is it the woody?

Probably!  I bet there is a flurry of bidding on gypsy from the losers of the woody auction.

You kept the link, Stephen. Smart! :)



This time around it's an "original" part 1 plus photocopied part 2, if I read correctly ("This module consists of photocopied pages of the original dot-matrix printout given out to GenCon 19 Tournament DM's").



Last time it was "originals" of all three parts (including two copies of part 2, one of which was still sealed) "plus a pre-tourney letter from Frank and [the seller's] gencon19 Judges scheduling letter".
