Darn! Please don't reply so quickly when I'm trying delete my message, Brian! :P

"10th Anniversary Collector's Set" vs. "10th Anniversary Collector's Pack" :roll:

(And yes, there are many more Sets around the community here than just that one... Hrmm...).

*g*. Just realised (again) that after campaigning for the vinyl First Quest to be downgraded from a "5" to a "4" that there has only been one for sale on eBay in ages, to the best of my knowledge.

Is still a "4" anyhow, in my book. Just a long gap between tracks.

Well, considering that there was run of at least 5 or 6 in 3 months time last spring, at the time it seemed to appear almost common. :?

Somewhere around that number/period, yes.

Even though that higher number was about the same as woodgrains just now (!), that still feels like it still averages out at "4": and a fair number of copies in second-hand (record) shops in the UK, too, I'm sure!
Not many woodies there...

Alright, I am letting the kitty out of the satchel. :P

Being that they also have a seperate listing up for 3 more, who still thinks SR #3 is a rarity 4? :)



<edit> oh yeah and then there is these too:

And Badmike has one up in his store also. :o

Why the heck are there so many of these available but not of the others?  Did they accidently run 20,000 instead of 2000?  I know it was the first stapled issue but that hardly explains it unless they went to a different printing company and got a volume discount.

*vbeg*. Is as good a theory as any other I've heard. There are a large number of high-grade remainders of #3, whatever the reason.

No-one responded when I asked back in 2004; viewtopic.php?p=9441&highlight=#9441
My copies came from a hobby-shop remainder stock sold at GenCon, so it could be that TSR blitzed the distributors with that one, judging by the relative scarcity(?).

Mailed copies of #3 (and the others) are still very scarce, however; even if the last lot- including #1- sold for a pittance!

thought this may be fun to revive again (missed it first time round) with bbarsh rarity coming up and the recent talk of RPGCA possible membership qualification   :)

There was on only last week (might still be up, I'm sure)

Is the tape a 5? I think I have only seen it come up once.. (admit that I haven't looked for one, but the only time that it was spoken about here...)

Brette:)
