Dang. Nice.

I think my wife is hot, but she hasn't found me any role playing book bargains yet! I'll have to get her on to it!

Should have picked it up regardless.  My searches include all of the Games category.  First time for everything I guess.

You might have it set to look for TSR instead of "Tactical Studies Rules.

Well I just got one of my most wanted.  Dwarven Glory 1st print



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... :IT&ih=018



It was from our Freinds at Toad & Troll.  Unbelievable price I might add :)



He also included an Official Fonarow Collection certificate of Authenticty, apparently a famous collection I nver heard of :?



Considering the last DG 1st went for $1500+(IRRC)  I got a kick ass deal 8)



It is in perfect condition :D

Well, I for one am glad you got it and it was in superb condition.  Frankly I think buying from T&T is a crapshoot based on what I have heard.  Maybe not as bad as some other resellers but bad enough I would rather look elsewhere.



Never heard of Ken Fonarow?  Besides his collection that he sold to T&T recently, I am pretty sure that he had been running the Gen Con auctions for awhile up until last year when T&T took over.  I have bought several things from him off Ebay over the years.  He went by the handle weekendwarrior and obviously http://www.weekendwarrior.com is his website.  Real nice guy.

Damnit, I'd trade some of my wife's looks for just one phone call like this:

"Honey, I'm at the used book store. Is a ... first-edition ... Robert E. Howard any good? The price tag says $2."[/i]

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.
