I don't think that I need to say much more than that. :)

Note: As this is a very rare and expensive module (the last one I know of went for $2600 in a private sale)


Guess he meant to say " The highest price I could quote from the Acaeum, but misread,  to show how much I expect to get was $2500 in a private sale"  :wink:  

Anyways, I'm sure it will go for an obscene amount more than it's really worth  8O

It's amazing the many viewpoints on collectibles.  Did you know that Detective #27 (featuring the first appearance of Batman in 1937) is valued at approximately $500,000 in Near Mint condition (probably more if one ever came up for auction).



There are currently 15 confirmed copies of this comic graded by CGC (maybe a couple more that still are CGC certified).



Even Amazing Spider-man #1 can haul in an easy $3,000 - 30,000 depending on grade and there are 800 CGC copies floating around, not to mention however many that aren't CGC'd.



This Hess Truck just went for $2,100  on ebay.



If you ask me, D&D collectors are getting off cheap.  :D

I sold an amazing fantasy #15 for $3000.00 about 5 years ago, I bought it for $150.00 about 12 years ago!  Comics used to be so hot!!

A 1st print woodgrain went for $4200.00 a few months back.  There is real value in some of this old stuff.

Hey guys, ease up on the seller, huh.  The seller is extremely reputable and and an all around good person.  From what I gather they also peruse this very forum from time to time and might have inside information to that $2600 figure, so please be nice. :)

Somebody here (not sure who) said months ago that collecting D&D is still a relatively cheap hobby, and they are dead right, whether you go for rares like this ST1 or just prefer picking up the old modules you played in the past.  I don't think that it will ever get even close to the heights of comic collecting - but it is affordable for many people.

Besides - from our perspective over here on this side of the Atlantic - you might as well spend your money now, before H5 Avian Flu gets you (now that it is here in the UK).   :wink:


[edited to add in response to bclarkie that the seller has been fast and polite and clear in answering questions. seems good.]

There is no doubt they peruse the forum. :)  *waves*  I'd also vouch for this eBayer, they won my Tsojconth and the auction was as smooth as it gets.  Nothing wrong with a little wishful thinking..

This will certainly be an interesting auction to watch.  Considering ST1 has little to recommend it, other than its percieved scarcity, I'm amazed that it goes for as much as it does.

Am I missing something?  Does it have some historic significance?

Yes. It was published by a bunch of pansies in a big garden in England. Kinda like a hippy trip in a flower bed.
