Must be like the Fazzles ... lots of them in a garage  :wink:

Actually he only has two .. obviously the money has attracted him and he has decided to sell both.  The first came in its original shipping box though this shouldn't affect the pricing.

Although this one wasn't stored like the other and appears to have more wear and tear.

UK auction for GW Floor Plans:




** expired/removed eBay auction **




Condition isn't optimal, but shaggymatt is good guy, so no risks in dealing with him. :)  



FWIW, he also has a GW G3-Hall of the Fire Gian King up, again not optimal condition:

2 more sets of Dragon Dice, same seller two different auctions:




** expired/removed eBay auction **





** expired/removed eBay auction **




Seems perhaps these things aren't as rare as they were originally made out to be, they are cropping up all over the place now.

Last one for now. :)   Very nice looking Greyhawk Folio:




** expired/removed eBay auction **






Its defintely an early print, but I can't tell for sure if its a first or not, because of the glare created by the camera flash.  Might well be worth a query to the seller especially considering its condition and it sitting with no bids and just a $14.99 opening bid.

Definitely not 1st; got bottom-folding pockets. (In 1st, everything would fall out if you held it loosely.)

Brian:  It appears to be a 2nd/3rd to my eye.  The 1st has the "1980, TSR Games" text higher up (roughly across from the yellow top of the shield), I believe.

Frank:  You might want to mention that distinction to Foulfoot.  It's not mentioned in the notes, yet. ;)

My thoughts exactly.  

Too bad the case isn't genuine wood.

Howdy Frank,

Actually, the 1st prints do have pockets Frank. Later ones had the slipping covers (around 4th or 5th IIRC).

How odd. I remember our 1st print as being screwed up regarding the pockets.

On various products we had the problems with the right numbers & copyrights being in the right places, but that typically occurred when we made other changes and weren't rigorous in checklisting.

I'll have to ask Harold. In the meantime, what's your source on that?

Yes, my overwhelming love for d20 caused me to bid.
