This will be great. He'll make more money than a whore in a Navy port.
Frank (great name btw), you might want to consider signing certain items. Or better yet, offering to do so for the winner if he or she chooses. I'm sure it will add to the value.

I'll consider the matter and get back to ya.

Rest assured that if I sell privately instead of on greedbay, it will be advertised here... and I will learn what I have to do to ship overseas from the USA.

(I took the name [email protected] back in 1990 or so; had it ever since.)


Now please, let us return to our scheduled TOPIC... eh?

So in addition to what's been registered in this poll, the following Rares have apparently been accounted for:

Ghost Tower:  3 DM's copies, 1 Staff copy, 2 Designer's copies

Lost Tamo:  1 DM's copy, 4 Staff copies, 1 Designer's copy, 1 Complementary copy.

I have some of the D&D PA Newsletters. I guess I should scan & submit some for ID purposes.

:) The PANs are elusive enough as it is. I managed to fluke putting together a complete set of those, but would be a struggle unless they all came up at once.
The TSR-UK Hobby Newsletters pre-dated those. Official publications, even though I suspect they were done off Don Turnbull's own back :)
(Have seen some of his early flyers re. hobby meets at "The Mill" and those have a refreshingly low key tone, so would expect something of that ilk for the period).

Think I know someone that has (some of) these.  Will check and get back.

What designation is applied to numbered copies sold at the con?

In any event, put me down for 1 DM Tamo, 1 numbered Inverness.

Which # Inverness do you have, Frank?  We're keeping an inventory on those respective pages.

And what do you mean by "designation"?

I'll letcha know after I see it next trip. If I remember. :/

You cite 4 types: DM, Staff, Designer, and Complimentary.

A numbered one is apparently 'none of the above'. (Unless one of you wants to give me a numbered one for nothing, making it Complimentary...) How do you designate a standard numbered copy, one of the 300 sold?

Many thanks to those who've been posting and PMing their Rares lists.  It's been quite informative.  

I'll try to get the information compiled after I get home later this week.  If you're considering sending me a PM, rest assured, anonymity is guaranteed!

I am assuming that you are planning on posting a comprehensive listing with totals though, right? :)

Yep, that's the plan.

By the way, thanks also to those of you who've sent info on items that weren't in the poll, but should have been.  I'll post those counts as well.

Here are the data so far.  Many, many thanks to everyone who either posted information in this thread, or PM'd me.  Obviously, it wouldn't be possible to put numbers on the Rares if you weren't willing to share your inventories.

This list gives the numbers of Level-5 Rares accounted for so far.  If you see something I've left out, please send that information, and I'll update the list.  Also, please consider forwarding your information if you haven't already done so.  We can update this list anytime, so PM me when you get a chance.  As I've emphasized repeatedly, this is strictly confidential.

Following the lists is a plot of the Acaeum-estimated "NM/Mint" value of these items vs. the number of copies of each accounted for so far.  That part is just for fun.

Thanks to everyone who's helped to get this project started!

-Stephen

Wonder why Tsoj. was so low (6), relative to the other two...I think a lot didn't get reported as it was considered "out of the running".   :?
