Collecting stuff like this is just so much fun I dont think I will ever be sated.  Years ago when I first started really collecting I thought to myself that I would just get the core 1st edition AD&D stuff and that would be enough.  In the past 5 years I have branched off to OD&D, Planescape, and Forgotten Realms.  I stay away from Dark Sun, Ravenloft, Birthright, and Spelljammer though.  So now I have most of the stuff I started out wanting to get and now I am knee deep in Traveller, MERP, Twilight: 2000, Torg, and Shadowrun collecting.  And due to some of the really cool people here, I now have an itch to grab up some of the neato Judges Guild and Mayfair items.

At this point I dont think it will ever stop (unless I run out of room).  My fiance and I are never having kids so I can be pretty selfish.  But I still have a budget so I dont use my credit cards for Ebay purchases.  That keeps me from going hog-wild and doing something I will probably regret later.

I have a few rares and would like to get a few more...specifically R3 and R4.  Had a chance to pick up both of them a year or so ago (R3 was shrinkwrapped) and passed because I thought they were a tad too expensive.  The guy wanted $120 for the R3 and $100 for the R4.  I have a permanent indention in my ass from kicking myself there over and over again.  :evil:   I guess if I had to say which item I would like to have more than anything it would be a 2nd print POTVQ...because it is just so pretty.  :D

I'd like a bunch of stuff, but not necessarily the super Hope Diamond class rares. I don't really know much about the Wee Warriors stuff, so it doesn't speak to me. But I would like a 1st woodgrain, for obvious reasons. However, only if I can score it in some deserted ancient junkstore like in Gremlins where the guy finds the Mogwai.

I might also like the r series that everybody talks about, but I am not keen on paying a lot of money as I don't make a lot of money- how the heeyelll you all kin afford such dainties plumb beats me !

I just want to complete my module collection, b1-12, x1-13+solos, cm1-9, etc, the ad&d line and that will do it, I think...but I am almost finished completing my "mini reprint" collection- I just need a phb and dmg- anybody know where I could get those? They seem  pretty hard to find....

Hey, what's with that "2nd print", please? ;)
(Yeah; very pretty, IRL... An impressive start to module publication from Pete!).

Dreamer! :P

*SWs PotVQ and offers to Doug*

Personal choice: A few woodgrain boxes would be kinda neat, despite being of precisely zero practical value... :)

I tend to be fairly dog-like in the narrow focus of any ongoing hunt....

    Right now, I want:

Thieves Guild 1

I am also on an Elric/Stormbringer jaunt at the moment.

City of Brass  (Maybe in a while...when I have more cash.)

Unless I'm mistaken, I have an extra TG 1. And I know I have mini books going on the block soon.

I wouldn't mind the original playtest B1 & B2 manuscripts.  :D

Right now I'm looking for a 1st Print Dwarven Glory and a whole host of non-TSR stuff that never seems to come up on eBay.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

1st & 2nd Woodie (aren't they at the top of most people's lists? - at differing price ranges).
& 1st prints of the wee warriors modules (POTVQ, DG & MI)

As others have mentioned previously, I don't think I'll ever sell what I'm collecting now. I'm definitely not in it for the money from a re-sell or investment. It's pure nastalgia, and the enjoyment of having...
:D

Inverness, Tsojconth, Greyhawk Supp. (yes, that early version), Dragon Dice Percentage Generators, 1st print G1-3/D1-3/Q1, and yes, an ST1

oh, plus world peace and a good singing voice.

Now, where's that Genie gone?

I'm still looking for a 1st UK Basic. The dark blue one with the gothic art. How many of those do you have, John?

I'd love to have complete, legal cd roms of everything published by TSR.  For ease of use and research purposes.  I hate having to dig through boxes all the time to find something.  I'd also like cd roms of all MERP, Companions, Midkemia, Thieve's Guild, fill in the blank.  
  It would be nice to have a collection like the Dragon magazine cds for Dungeon and Polyhedron mags...again for ease of use while I'm at my computer.

I'd like just a white box/woodie, mainly so I can know what all these od&ders are going on about, as my oldest in the Holmes D&D


There are no bad editions of D&D, just Boring Players and Unimaginative DMs.
