Something I've been wondering about for a while - why are there so many Strategic Review No. 3s floating around?

SR3 was the first one I got a while back and I was pretty happy with the price but then I noticed in the following weeks and months that these things were popping up on a regular basis. I began to (and still do) wonder if the one I got was one of a hoard of fakes unleashed on eBay.

All originals, afaik.

They seem to have come from a couple of remainder-stock caches: one of which was up at GenCon a few years back (from which I picked up a block of 11 mint copies, having missed the other issues - not all present - on the dispersal).
Not 100% sure where Titan and others have picked their's up from; but good ol' #3 always seems to do the front-running.

Titan got if from some Judges Guild employee selling a bunch out of his garage, in Illinois (forgot city, but I have it somewhere). Bought a good lot of Judges Guild materials as well from the same guy.
