Foul

Had it not finally been confirmed that the stated-"pre-pub sets" were actually ~1975 vintage, as might be expected from their ownership history?

Certainly doesn't hurt to ask, though! :)

Not interested in small variations in trimming; that's within minor variance at the printer, even within a print run.

Not interested in color variantions either, ditto.

Am HIGHLY interested in this alleged version that does NOT mention the D&D Art Prints at the bottom of the catalog page.

:?

Likewise, Frank! :)

Those comments were only in the context that if these do exist as public releases, the time frame is going to be very narrow, since I thought I'd almost boxed-off back to the first half of '74.
Obvious question would be... why not Gary or RJK's books, presuming they still have their's?

=
aside only, then; The color/size variations are fairly consistent thus far, but only from a small sample size. Agreed, that could be from within one release; trying to rule that out, but it's only the type presumed to be "later" that has ever turned up with the variant U&WA.
What appears to have happened is that the text pages were printed as one batch; then separate runs of covers added, as required, then guillotined to size.
The 2nd print is relatively constant throughout in comparison.

=
k... Back over to the hunt...

I think so, since I auctioneered that alleged "pre-pub" one GenCon a long while back. Still remember it, tho, having no sticker on the front.

But again, this isn't about that. This is about Gary's memory, and whether or not any browns were printed before the D&D Art was in the catalog. :/

If there ARE any out there, that may renumber our entire research...

Sounds good to me!

I've been trying to dig around at the roots for long enough (and not liking the vagueness in places) that it would be a pleasant surprise to see something like that appear out of the blue and create a back-stop.

ExTSR wrote:I have a REQUEST.

Gary has mentioned to me that he believes that in the product catalog for the TrueFirst brown there is no mention of D&D Prints for sale. He belives those were added for an additional run (1st+? but with no mention of "Second Printing" being added however).

I have not yet seen a photo of that page, either posted on the sale or sent separately by the seller. Neither have I personally seen a 1st booklet (with the distinctive cover) that lacks the mention of those prints.

The catalog data seem to be unspecified in the official Acaeum description.

Blackmoor, lemme know PLEASE.  8O


I will let you know when it arrives!

Let's hope it doesn't get gunned down in the crossing.

It has arrived :D

What a gorgeous copy of this item, the box is solid (some minor wear to corners, the books are fresh, bright and clean!  Great find.  I really could not be happier!

There is even a business card of the game store it was purchased in (probably original pruchase)

Frank (Menzter)  there is mention of the art prints on the back page of book one!

David (Faro) the books are 8.5 inches tall each.

Funny, I have been disapointed so many times buying rare to semi rare stuff on Ebay I almost expected this item to be crushed, lost or whatever.  It is very nice and a great find overall.  I imagine I will have a great weekend now!

Now if that vampire queen thingy would just get here already :wink:

Everybody have a great weekend

Jeff

I have been watching Bombadil's 3rd print Greg Stafford Woodgrain and am surpised it hasn't sold for the $1175 BIN.



About four or five months from now when I am working again (and earning USD!), I will be in the market for a Woodgrain. Can someone comment a little on values. I would have thought Bombadil's item would be a bargain at that price.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Strangely enough, the gaming market for rare items hasn't seemed to have been effected much by the dump the economy has taken. Rare items still demand a certain price.



Then again, it's just dumb luck sometimes... especially when you (as a seller) are lucky enough to get two bidders in a crossfire.



And then again, Tom_Bombadil's woodgrain box was in a really nice condition.
