Go celebrate with a stiff drink.  The Canadians have some decent whiskey, if you don't mind blends.


Yes a drink!  Is winning one of these what drove Red Bus to the bar :D

Well I don't think the sellers will consider whoever offered them $75 to be their closest friend from now on.

Just as long as there's enough money left to buy a drink when you get there and it doesn't mean you have to live on beans for a month  :lol:

Congrats indeed - a real fight at the end.  Well done, you deserve a drink now.

In an hour I will be off to meet some people at the Boot & Flogger
http://www.london-se1.co.uk/restaurants ... enueid=312

...for a glass or two of wine.  I will raise a toast to your victory!  :D

Is the Boot & Flogger next door to the Foot & Blogger?

Man, I love the names you guys give your pubs.  How could a wife get pissed at a guy for hanging out at a place like that?  That's probably part of the strategy involved in naming them, isn't it?

It certainly helps!

Apparently a Boot & Flogger is an old fashioned method of opening a wine bottle (pre-corkscrew).  You literally do attach a wooden 'boot' and use a 'flogger' to whack the cork in.  I think that is - perhaps the person who told me was having me on.  :)   It is an interesting place - a bit like an old gentleman's club with ancient big leather armchairs and lots of old wood panelling.  And it is just across the road from an old plague graveyard (which has been concreted over, but no-one can build on it, so it is just left empty...  8O ).

Sounds like just my kind of place.  I'll be there around 6-ish.  The graveyard is what did it for me.

No IIRC the last one went for $4200.00 (Red Bus), so I imagine that is what it is worth now!

well either way - that is two quality prime collectibles now in very safe homes, where they will be equally treasured.

so well done to you both!

I need to stop at more garage sales. 8O

Now let's see if any more come out of the woodwork. $4k should raise some interest.

Clearly the high side limit for woodies has not been set. (I know I won't be the one setting it, either).


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

That's up about 3% in 6 months, assuming we're treating the last two as equivalent.  The next one should be around $4264.05 using no particular logic except linear extrapolation over time.

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

Frank; I presume you're asking because that set doesn't appear to have a correction sheet? ;)

Well, I couldn't tell for certain from the auction pic since the books are rather clean (!), but the red/green colors on the covers could be of the darker variety which might tie in with what I have earmarked as the earlier release (as sent out to Dave Arneson & co., so presumably not tail-end 74!).
Would need Jeff to check the book heights to the nearest 1/4 mm to see whether the pattern tallies.

As to any copies w/o the print catalog; hey, who's to say why not?
*
Pretty much everyone was happy to go with the 1,000 collated box sets sitting on the floor at once from a single printing, when that's obviously not the case.
And like I have various questions to EGG (or poss. RJK?) in return, re. actual first copy sold date and things like that. Definitive data, y'know. :)

My copy has the Prints on the catalog page.  If the owners of pre-pub sets could chime in, perhaps that would help settle the question.

Not interested in errata sheets.

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.

:?
