It's a first print, all of the box corners are solid, and the maps and book appear unused.  Now, if I can learn how to speak snake, maybe I can run a campaign in Tekumel!   :lol:

Are we nearly there yet?

I'm beginning to think a box and insert in decent shape are harder to find.  :D

Looks like the gold-plated Grenadier Orc Shaman. Nice pickup at that price.

Once upon a time, my mother in law bought out a bunch of s/w d&d at the px.  I thought she gave it all to my brother in law years ago.

Imagine my surprise when I received a gift in the mail....  S/W blue expert box set.  Apparently, she has found some more of the d&d from the px purchase!  

Apparently, they couldn't sell it for the original clearance price of 3.47 so they marked it down to 2.67.  She thinks she paid much less, lol.

Lucky me!

No word yet on whether or not there are any s/w white boxes left in the lot.  I would love to own one or even just examine one to see if it looks like original or aftermarket shrink.

Ridiculous price thread is down the way buddy. :)



Wow, When I see stuff like this I think "GOOD LUCK Fellow Collector" but the LJN toys just don't interest me at all.  They aren't "really" D&D in my particular definition and I just can't see someone else thinking they are worth that much, but, GOOD LUCK Fellow Collector!  My crap that's valuable to me is looked on with disinterest by a large portion of society as well. :)

I agree with you, of course, but I wasn't sure if it was a Fun Find, or Silliest Price or a Laughable Description. Maybe all three! :roll:

Ah!  I think I saw that exact auction.  Wasn't it a BIN?  I remember spotting it while at work and planned to probably scoop it up... and by the time I got home, it was gone.  lol  You beat me to it.  ;)  Nice grab!  :)

Some of you may have noticed that I listed a few rare items over the past few days.



HERE IS WHY!



A large lot (To me anyway...) I purchased a week or so back.

Spent ALL of my gathered up NTPRGCON Funds to buy it too... and then some...  8O

Now I must find a way to replace that fund ...



Here is the Listing...




** expired/removed eBay auction **




The Package was sitting on the porch when I got home today.

As I walked up the walk to my house, I could already see that the box had ripped open (Completely) with a tear along one entire side and my heart missed a few beats...  8O

I could see everything in the box without even picking the box up!   8O

Got the box inside and opened it up the rest of the way, knowing I had probably lost a bunch of stuff.  :cry:



Here is what I found:



TSR AD&D Core Rule Books...

ALL are First Prints:

Players Handbook (Orange Flyleaf's, so its a 1st Beta print I guess) Very Fine

Dungeon Master Guide (D runs off the cover)  Very Fine

Monster Manual  Very Fine to Near Mint (This book crinkled when I opened It up!)  

(OH MY GOODNESS!)



2nd Print of Deities and Demigods - Very Fine (144 pages, with Thanks on page 4)



OD&D White Box Set 5th print

Box Poor to Fair, Crushed with some tears... OK POOR

Men-VG

Monsters-Good (cover is separated)

Underworld-VF

(There are some White Reference Sheets present, but I think not complete)



Orange colored digest sized sheets (they look like the Reference Sheets for the OD&D Box Sets)



OD&D Supplements:

4th Print Greyhawk - Fair to Good (Cover loose, otherwise nice)

2nd Print Blackmoor -- Very Fine to NM

1st Print Eldritch Wizardry -- Fine (Slight fraying along the spine but NOT loose, some writing on the notes pages at back in pencil)



Strategic Review Vol. 1, No. 1 -- Near Mint



Blank Hex Sheets Pad (Red Glue Strip still on the top)

Small Hex; Top tearing with 8 unused white sheets remaining, no backboard

Plus one more sheet that has a detailed wilderness map drawn in colored pencil.



Two Blue PC Records Sheets (used, pencil only)

Copyright 1977-TSR Hobbies, Inc.



17 Dice- All are the Old type of dice, most in great condition others rounded corners, for which I have no clue as to values.



Monster & Treasure Assortment Sets:

All have Lizard Logos and all are Very Fine to Near Mint.

Set One: 1st Print  (Outdoor Geomorphs listed as Future Products)

Set Two: 1st Print (Hobbits at encounter 43)

Set Three 2nd Print (Set Three in Products List)



Judges Guild Stuff:

FIRST PRINT (White) Initial Guidelines Booklet I - VF (Hole punched)

Guide to the City State Book VF

Full set of Four Piece CSIO Maps VF-NM

Campaign Map One Set  NM

I think this might be part of the initial package sent to folks who signed up at the 76 GENCON!



I had bid on and lost a few auctions for the CSIO Book over the years, never quite able to snag a copy.

And I had never even seen a copy of the White Initial Guidelines Booklet I… at least not in person.. … SWEET!



Two three hole binders.

One is plain with nothing but home made maps on grid paper.

The other binder has a seal of University of Northern Iowa on the front.

Mostly filled with Home made stuff…

Xerox Sheets (Most of them from Dragon Magazines), Home brew PC Sheets (They look homebrew anyway), Filled out PC Sheets, Game Notes by the DM, etc.



I WILL be forced to sell a lot more things to make up for this purchase, But I am VERY GLAD I robbed the fund for this lot of items.
