I am curious, and in an effort to pull this topic out of the interesting items folder, which version of the silver anniversary box set do you have? If you have more than one, please select the one you have highest on the list.

Cheers,
Curt

I actually have 4 of them. :)   One unopened and 3 opened, none of which have the signed Easley print. :(

Mine is opened and has a signed print.  Its in a bookcase which is blocked by another bookcase so I can't tell you what the # is.  Wish I had kept it sealed.  But then I'd never know it was signed.

One shrinked and one not. I've sold at least three or four in the last few years.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I had no idea that the set didn't come with a signed and numbered print. I checked the one that I a co-worker gave to me, and it didn't have a signed print. The one I bought when the set was first released did, though.

Two shrinked.  Not sure about the signed print (they are stored back in Ireland, so it may take a while to check).

If I knew then what I know now I would have bought two of them and kept one in the shrink.  I am just happy I bought the one when they came out.  I dont think I could bring myself to pay $100 for it.  8O

Mine was in the shrink when I bought it off eBay.  Had to open it to get at the "History of TSR" book.

That is what I did.  Opened one, read it and sold the pieces worth money.  Other one still sealed in my dungeon.

I have 4 (1 w/ signature opened / 2 standard SW / 1 standard opened)

With a combination of people opening the boxes out of personal interest and those with the intent split the contents to sell separately I presumed the amount of SW pieces with the sticker would be minuscule. I am pleased to see that just from a quick poll there are at least three amongst the collectors. Now all I have to do is track one down for myself  :wink:

Cheers,
Curt

Add another sealed / signed one to the pot. Just got back from Scholar's in Bridgewater Mass and found another  bout 7 feet up in the air on a shelf lying flat...( up with about 50 packs of dragon dice :? ). Edge was just at shelf edge.( already bought 3 there 2 non / 1 signed ). Guy who own's it says I was the only person whe showed interest in them...he thought the price was absurd but with 30% off stuff I didn't complain....guess I should leave this one sealed? :)
