Indeed, even if boxes are incomplete, this is an awesome score!

I am very interested in hearing about that loose leaf copy of Thieves Guild 10.

By the time 10 came out, they were no longer printing loose leaf....as far as I know.

Are we looking at an unknown printing, or is that a photocopy?

That has to be a photocopy.  Only 1-5 had looseleaf versions, as far as I know.

I have been looking for these "on the cheap" for a while. Individually, they seem to go for $75-100, so (assuming these are in the condition that they appear to be in) I am pretty happy with them at $50 per book. I am not really a 3.X collector, but the price on these 3.5 volumes has me pretty happy  :D

That's a great purchase!  :D

I haven't posted any pics in a while but I just had a spell of good fortune and thought I'd share...

So I was visiting my flgs picking up my pre-order yesterday:

...which are superb and I quite like, then the owner pointed out a stack of old books that came in from a customer that he put aside for me (knowing that I like this stuff :))

... which looked very interesting, here's what they were:

Except for the stain on the G1, all in tip-top shape, complete (even the DL11), and a few of them first prints too...  I've got a spot in my collection for most of those goodies :)

I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Hey everyone,

Well nothing really major but these finally arrived today:

Vintage Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Players Handbook - 3rd Printing - 1979

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

Vintage Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Books (4 books)

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

I don't think I overpaid on them taking both of those as one lot.
Considering I also have to take into account shipping to Hong Kong for these on my final bids... :P

The early printing of the PHB was in much better shape than the other PHB so I was happy about that. :)

Best regards,
Ronald

Yup, it was me.  I didn't want to post anything until I had it in my hands for fear of jinxing it. It was described well, got it just as described with 6 Reference Sheets and an errata sheet.....no pencil marks anywhere even though he says in the description there is. Box is solid, the couple tears at the corner/edge are just in the paper coating, the box is solid all the way through. Anyway, I'm stoked.  8O

Zenfinite

P.S. May consider offers if anybody wants a solid woodie......?

Yup, third print. The guy did a great job of describing it, I'm kinda surprised he didn't realize what it is actually worth. Hell, maybe he only paid $20 for it, so, at $450 he 20x his investment. :)

Was any of the following part of the deal?

Great haul. I'm a bit disappointed you're now open to offers. I would hope such a find would be kept and cherished.
