Granted the item itself is a major disappointment, but they are pretty hard to find.  I think that I have seen a total of 3 sell in the last 3 years and two of them were Draco's.




Hey BClarkie,



Just curious as to why you feel the 10th Anniversary set is a "major" disappointment. Is it due to the fact that there is nothing unique, rare, or collectible in it?



Thanks in Advance,

Nothing interesting, might be the better word. That's certainly my impression. You're paying hundreds of dollars for the case and for a couple of pens?

Even those 10th Anniversary shrinkwrapped module sets hold more appeal...

Its disappointing because that its not all that interesting.  Its not even a two piece box that opens and closes, its just a cheap fake leather box with one side missing thats filled with a bunch of overstock items. :?   When I first saw it here on the site, it really kind of captured my fanscination, then actually I bought one from someone privately and lets just say the fascination quickly disapated.  I would much rather spend my money on something far more useful such as a few RPGA or R modules or something along those lines if I was making the decision.


<edit>That thing is already at $500. :?

Yes, my secret ploy is to trash the value of very rare items in the public forum and then bid them up.

Dude, a little defensive there?  My guess was based simply on the fact that I actually thought that you were bidding on it.   I did not assume anything by your comment to the question that was asked, as you appeared to be answer the question that was directed towards me from what you thought was my perspective.

HOLY "PIECE OF DEFICATION" - I would have thought this would have been comparable to the Silver Anniversary set, say $120 +/-

Not $500.00 with 9 Days & 21 Hours left . . . are these people insane :?  8O

Out of my league . . . good night!!

Well, kind praise, I suppose. Sadly I'm not the high roller shelling out $500 for it. Not that anyone's interested, but I'd probably put the set on par with some of the other TSR anniversary packages.

In my mind, any one thing over $100 (with few exceptions) warrants a considerable investment decision.. not just what I think its worth. Maybe when I own everything under the sun that might change.

I did not assume anything by your comment to the question that was asked, as you appeared to be answer the question that was directed towards me from what you thought was my perspective.


Interesting, I suppose one could read it that way.. that certainly wasn't my intent.

Here's an F115-R Lizard Logo Holmes Basic Set:



http://cgi.ebay.com/DUNGEONS-DRAGONS-BA ... dZViewItem



Anyone recognize the two orange sheets that are with it?



Seller states "Lastly, there are two orange, (feels like construction paper) price guides for figures with a printed date of 8/12/77 and 10/9/77, (this one is soiled and has a few tears."



Are these TSR price lists or are they from another company?

Here is the best line from that auction:



5 shaped rolling pieces, ( a yellow triangle, an orange square, a light blue hexagon, a twenty sided white piece, and a green octagon.



I believe the seller means, "dice."

That's the early set of dice. Now wonder when universal colors started coming into play and the dice sizes changed.

I have a Holmes Wizard Logo set with B1 and those same five dice. Matches the description of a 4th+ print. It seems to be a fairly common arrangement on Ebay. According the Acaeum listing, even the last Holmes set printing (7th) could have the five "rainbow" dice. However, none of the Holmes set printings are listed as having the six "monochrome" dice. (Anybody have one they can verify as original?) Perhaps the six monochrome dice were first ordered/made by TSR in conjunction with the 8th print (Moldvay) and/or the Dragon Dice polyhedral sets?

The early Holmes basic sets had the multi-color dice.

I noticed monochrome dice...sort of a gray...appearing in the second generation of that set.

What struck me as funny was the terminology....5 shaped rolling pieces

Hi All,



Check out this listing, especially the seller's name and who the current (w/ 10+ hours to go) or 7th bidder is . . . I think they deserve each other:




** expired eBay auction **




Oops, I see by the bidding history that some members have bid, so I hope that no one is offended, as I was just pointing out the names of the seller & high bidder . . . I just loved the irony :wink:
