Has anyone figured out yet which printing of Chainmail this is?



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... &rd=1&rd=1



The part that caught my interest was:



This is a bound-leaf book of 44 pages




Could be a silver cover, stapled copy.  Is "bound-leaf" a printing term?  Doesn't sound like a spiral-bound copy.  I asked, but haven't received an answer.

Actually Stephen, I didn't even know that was there, but to me bound-leaf would indicate that it s spiral bound copy. :)   IMO, if it was stapled, then the seller would not have even mentioned it, as thats how most books are bound.  Of course, it would certainly be benficial if the seller would in fact confirm exactly which it is.

Anyone seen these before?  Looks like new stuff, ripping off old art. (from the cartoon)

Official or not, who produced such items is a virtual genius! I have never laughed for an auction so long (I especially liked the DM in Training piece...).

I was sorely tempted on that one.  (She's still too young to play Bunnies & Burrows, Fuzzy Heroes, or appreciate the plush d20 on as many levels as I do...)

I play Heroquest every other day with my 5-year old. We've done a few T&T mods as well.

The auction title lists it in "Great Shape", but if you read the description thats not necessarily the case.  I will say though that if this goes higher than my 1st print, I am going to freak out....  





Starting to look like there's a chance of that happening...

This doesn't strike me as surprising at all. They are both very rare, almost the exact same age, look the same, and thus captures the same nostalgic feel.

I suspect with many collectors, actual print run differences are a minor issue when the product is virtually identical, particularly when there is a very large difference in condition.

Plus, in this case, there are a few collectors out there (myself included) who really like the idea of owning a woodgrain that was the personal copy of a major personality in rpg history.  It definitely adds to the "collector value" of the item.

Provenance itself is a vastly important component of collecting, IMO.

Disagree totally, printing order is very important to collectors.  Owning Greg's copy would be very cool though and should add to the value.

No disrespect to MR. Stafford, but in all honesty just what should his copy hold over my own?  His contribution to TSR and my own are the exact same....zero. :?   I mean if this was EGG'S copy or RJK's copy or EO's or Sutherland's copy, etc. then I could understand it, but Greg Stafford has absolutely no history with TSR, so I am not sure why his set would be of anymore value to a D&D collector than anyone else's who had no offiliation to TSR.

What you mean those numbers that we host out on the main site that vary widely based on whether a printing is a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, eyc actually mean something and they are not completely pulled out our ass or are a figment of our imaginations?  :wink:

You know, you really have to wonder about some of the people who post here, if they actually have any clue as to what the hell is going on...
