Curious then, if the books state the product number 1134 for both boxes, or actually 1135 for those that came with that box.

Based on what I remember seeing from past auctions, the RPGA series seems to sell for a bit higher in the GenCon auctions than they do on Ebay (up until now anyway).  But I dont expect them to sell for anywhere close to that price if there are any at GenCon.  If they do....someone else will be spending their money on them because I definitely won't be.

I seem to remember a certain print of dragons being way over bid at the auction last year. :oops:

Though I am reasonable sure that will not happen this year, I anything can happen.

Hey, I'm hoping on it...still planning on bringing my RPGA1-4 and R1-4 unless too many other copies show up, or I get an insane $700 offer apiece for them.

Seems about right, IMHO, although even closer to $400 wouldn't have surprised me either. The information sheet might've helped a bit more but was possibly a bit too tatty?
Good to see an honestly used copy which can actually be opened and read without too much caution.

The previous sale was bumped $650 right at the end and was arguably at least that much over (looked good from the outside, but broken text block and non-period personal dedication).
