Even though they're not what's drawing bidders to this auction, it's worth noting that the OD&D booklets are photocopies.  The seller wasn't originally aware of this, but is going to amend the auction description.


Is it just me or has anyone else seen OD&D booklets that look just like these - the same covers I mean.  I could swear I have seen them before.

mixed lot - early UK print basic rule rarely comes up (see here - http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/setpage ... icfor.html)(I wasn't the first from the Acaeum to spot it!



According to the seller it is a 1st print but missing the perforated reference sheets (last page).

ADVANCED D&D MONSTER MANUAL NIB MINT SEALED 1977 78 77




** expired eBay auction **




Sounds good, maybe, but item has no pic, has yet to respond to email, and normally operates an auto junkyard of sorts. I guess the first print could have been shrinkwrapped. I haven't found reference to that here, yet.

I'm sure it's post-production re-shrinking by a third party. Being one of the hard cover books this is pretty obvious, but it is easy to be duped when older modules are re-shrinked.

Interesting too that it is pickup only - would hate to have to ship a package that big.

I live only a couple of hours away from this guy, but would be somewhat hesitant to go to his house with cash in hand, ready to pick up the goods, having noted that the last item he bought was a pistol grip stock!

And he sells used car parts.  He must own a junkyard nearby where he buries the bodies of eBayers who question his shrinkwrap.

. . . Boxed Gamma World set with some type of colored geomorphs (Heritage? TSR?)

. . . Dungeon!

. . . Boxed RuneQuest with and SPI DragonQuest and an early C&S

I wonder what the $35 shipping cost buys you.
