Al knew what I meant... :D

Hey, it's double-figures, but not 73.

Needed to stock up a few to check for other printings, then pick up one or two nice copies, and.... well, OK. :P

Somebody's gonna BIN that OCE at $150.
They've been going up rather nicely.

Sold one last year at GenCon SoCal for $350.

(Then why don't I BIN it? 'cause I have a few extras for sale already...)

I actually used to have the set.  I think there was a sword with scabbard, amulet, helmet, and if my memory serves me correct a small shield.  But I could be wrong about the shield.



I remember my younger brother and I swordfighting from dawn to dusk some days.  The swords eventually bent near the hilt and cracked after awhile.  But at least they were better than the original Star Wars lightsabers.  They were inflatable and were basically attached to a flashlight.

Stupidest toy ever....but I would kill to still have one.  Ok, maybe just maim.  :twisted:

Spotted a few 5ths: the 4ths eluded me, if so.
Plus a good number of early AD&D books...

Agreed; hasn't seemed quite that quiet. Deimos is getting jaded, I think. ;)

Not jaded, but I no longer find OCE auctions very stimulating.  I think they are working on a drug for the condition -- Gygaxra, or something.  
You folks with woodies just don't understand.  8)

The trade name for the drug is Faroxifen.

Did I mention earlier the guy who was given a complete OCE set, with Swords and Spells, Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Eldritch Wizardry and Gods Demi-Gods and Heroes by an old friend, quite recently.

   Oh, wait...that was me.

Point. The SoCal item was really clean. Yah, the one you point at is cleaner.

Some of y'all don't realize that while serious collectors pay kilobucks for browns, whites are fast becoming the mid-range collector's target. OCEs are moving into 200-400 (US$), while original whites are passing five.

A word to the wise to investor/resellers...

That's the printing I first bought.  A classic.
