Of the 5s I have only a VF Dwarven Glory 2nd Prt, and a NM POVQ (3rd)..
but then if everyone had them they wouldn't be 5s!

I have R1-4, RPGA3,4, coverless Jade Hare, Strategic Review 1-7, Dragon 1-6 and 2 1st print DMG.  I also have about 7 issues of the Game World newsletter?  Does anyone else have many issues of this?

Stephen, put me down for PoVQ 4th, Dragon 1-whatever, DG 2nd, Misty Isles (should be on the list). I just sold off a set of SR.
Speaking of Misty, I'm surprised that DG and PoVQ are even listed, being Wee Warriors and all. Is it because they were mistributed by TSR?

What's the dungeon map in the Character Archaic like? Any good?

Cat. "4" are also "rares" by the list.

But that's always open to personal interpretation, too, IMO.

SR#3 is more like a "3" in terms of overall numbers for sale on eBay (over 100 in the past couple of years) whereas there's a strong case for the Ozzies mods, GH 2nd, OD&D 4th(-), UK MM 1st/2nd and various others being on a "rare" list.

He, of course the figure *100* includes a sizeable majority of a not so popular online reseller with a large amount of which is still in stock and currently for sale. :wink:

;) indeed!

Hey, I have a "block" of mint copies, too; bought quite some time ago. (And I do mean "Mint", IIRC).

Working on a monthly update.

If anything has changed since Jan 14, please let me know.

I've already taken account of the Character Archaics that a2jeff and I acquired since this list was compiled.

Many thanks,
Stephen

Thanks, Stephen. I'm still playing "guess who contributed"!

Interesting on the number of 1st vs. 3rd print woodgrains :)

It will go to the grave with me!  In fact, it already has...

Yes, one of the nice spinoffs of doing something like this is that it gets you thinking about the relative rankings of the rares.

Yeah. Even though that's still far from complete, there are some interesting numbers (relative and absolute) in there!
Would certainly be interesting to see that expanded to cover some of the "not currently appearing on the main list" items, too.

One item that caught my eye was that you'd split-off the MM Errata sheet. How scarce is that really? :)
(Had also been told by one owner that that was included loose inside their purchase, contrary to the assertion here. Maybe that's why they're so "rare"? :P).

Looking at that list, I know that there is at least one *bigtime* collector(if not at least a few more) that must have not forwarded you their list of rares, because I know for a fact that I am not the only person on the board that currently owns a 10th anniversary pack. :wink:

Actually no.  And not I/O either. :wink:
