Not an official license.
In the same vein as the acrylic rectangular neon-style (just blue light) signs that came up recently.

Thanks Frank, I wouldn't have any idea how to verify the authenticity of these chotsky type items.

I have been quite lucky in the last months. There were three items I had been searching for 4-5 years, and I have found all three in a matter of months. The last one was just delivered to me:




** expired eBay auction **




Remembering the last one sold for over 200 dollars a couple years ago, that's a good deal.

Score!

Among the items still in storage from our last move I just discovered...the box to my DRAGON magazine archive CD set.

It's in good condition, with all the orignal papers inside.

I had given up hope that it might emerge...since back in the day I made moves to toss it out several times.

Now the CD's and the box are united and I am King! for a day

I can't believe it, I went to my FLGS store and picked up a MINT X13 In Shrink and at MINT Players guide to Greyhawk (2 ed) for a combined total of $30.00 :D

Score

I'm not sure about the players guide but the X13 mint in shrink is a major score.

I have this and a game called The Inheritance... both are Party Zone games from '85/'86.

My copy of Spy Ring is unpunched and VG but The Inheritance is a a little storage-worn and has some minor foxing/spotting from possible-but-now-inactive moisture/mildew.

Not sure how excited I am to keep these in the collection... They belonged to my infamous Aunt Donna the DM.

As suspected, this was indeed a first print. Pages FN+ condition, not a trace of writing or stains noted. Only a little wear. The only flaws are a tape name (whatever that stuff was called), an embossing of one flyleaf, and some marker stripes on the top page edge about 1/2" wide. Cover wear wasn't as bad as indicated. It still has quite a bit of the texture left.

From Gencon:

- Gary Gygax's personal copy of WG4

- RS1 (Red Sonya) in Mint/Near Mint condition [ironically from the Half-Price Books booth]

- A couple of 1st Print small books (Blackmoor and Deities and Demigods)

- A 4th Edition boxed set SW

- Tim Kask's Gencon module

- And a bunch of 3.5 books (I am down to 1 now that I need...)

I hope someone is taking down the new locations of Gary's items. I can see someone trying to make a killing on 'fake' personal items in the future. Do they come with provenance of some kind?

Of course.

There's a sheet signed by Gail Gygax and Paul Stormberg.

Two of the same incomplete half of the Dungeon Masters Screen, among other things. I happened to have two of the other half of the screens, so now I have two (more) complete ones in crappy condition than I did before. Anyone want a WSG, I can't stand that book...

Always a fun find for me - a previous owner's character sheet. Picked up an X3 on eBay and included with it is a character written out on two sheets of college ruled paper in some lovely handwriting.

Anyone here want to claim a level 8 cleric named Dream Deceiver?  :D

I'd take a copy but I am satisfied with my current toilet paper.

I could use a nice WSG.  Condition and price?

The binding is tight; a name (actually a couple's first names) written in pencil on the top of the front pastedown; a bit of yellowing to the pages from age and/or cigarette smoke; some light incidental staining to all edges of the textblock (possibly light beverage spotting/splashes during play :)); a faint odor of what I'm pretty sure is cigarette smoke; a few bumps and bruises to the cover, though nothing too serious. I guess it's probably in "good" condition. It's actually not really all that bad, but probably not collectible quality strictly speaking. I bought the lot for reading/playing purposes, so wasn't expecting much (this was the only thing in the lot I didn't really need).

If you want it, it's free plus the cost of shipping method of your choice. I get to the post office fairly regularly, have plenty of boxes, and it's nearby, so it's no trouble.
