Just got married, had a 3 week honeymoon, saving for a house. Wife gave me some serious angry looks as I clicked Buy-It-Now to boot. We've all got our reasons, no need to feel any sort of way about it.

Well, to make this short, as the new timey thing zapped what I wrote.  :(

These guys are all VF or better. A bit of rust on a couple, but not too bad. Now I have to make the terrible decision about who stays and who goes.

Another step closer to reacquiring all the programs from conventions attended back in the day.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I ditched many of my old con programs in a fit of organized recycling sometime back when I was in high school (or perhaps undergrad).  Sigh....

I pretty much did the same thing about 15 years ago. Regretted it within a year. Slow go trying to find them again.

I got an UK release of the Mentzer Basic set in what I'm calling "novel form" in that it is digest sized. Probably sold by a member here, in fact.

Been looking for a nice copy for quite some time.  But most have been selling for around $200 so I was happy to get this one.  Looks like a little staple rust.

I missed the bidding or you would have paid more for it.  :)

It's a better copy than what I have currently.

Anyone have another they want to sell in similar or better condition?

I picked up a couple of items in Paul's recent Darlene auction.  But this is probably my favorite:


** expired eBay auction **


GenCon XV (1982) was my first GenCon (and first game convention, for that matter).  Flipping through this was a real blast from the past.  The cost to preregister for all four days:  $12.  And the list of hotels, broken into three categories:  under $20 a night; between $20 a night and $30 a night; and over $30 a night.  I always wanted to stay at one of the hotels listed in the first category -- Big Lief's Hotel and Bowling Lanes.  But, it didn't take reservations.   8O  :lol:   Ah, those were the days!

Mark,
We stayed in one of those in 1982. When we arrived there was a real "gone fishing" sign on the door. There was an envelope with our names and room key on the counter! I don't remember the name but it was about 10 miles from the convention in some tiny town. That was my second Gen Con and I was only 17 at the time. There were four of us between the ages of 16 and 17. It sure was a different time! Great pick up on the program. I think I am still trying to replace that one.

I'm still annoyed that the Dragon Archive CD didn't include the GenCon inserts when they were present in the issues  :|

I was looking through my 1st ed hardbacks the other day and feeling depressed that I did not have a really nice 1st print monster manual; mine was ok but just was a little to worn :(

I decided to go look for one on ebay and came across this:


** expired eBay auction **


It looked good in the picture and the price was smokin so I took a chance on it!  Well it arrived the other day and WOW, I doubt this thing was ever used, bright, crisp and only slight cover wear and corner wear, even smells new  :D

Very happy
