Good scoop!  It should be interesting to see how the recently flooding of these boxed sets effects the price.  Still doubtful if will drop to sub $60.

DCC 35 Box Set in the Shrink Wrap!
My cost was $56, plus shipping and Insurance ($14.70) for a grand total of just $70.70.... 8O

Original Box Set Price?  $69.99

Yes, I was floored when the second chance offer arrived in my E-Mail.

The seller had 8 copies at first, and this one was her second sale.
I had bid on the first one and she sent me a second chance offer for $56 but at first I thought it was a scam from someone else.
(I posted as much in another thread).

The seller (soon after making that offer) somehow learned that she had a gold mine in those Box Sets and would not sell another one to me.
She is going to sell the rest of them through E-Bay auctions.
I don't blaim her, and she honored her committment to me.

I was one lucky dude!   :D


Great price, tough to find this for under $100 right now.

Just curious...did you get the Alpha version with the MM pages?

No. In fact, it turned out the seller was confused and thought Revised meant "2nd print." In fact, it was 6th+ printing, which is not too bad, but I had some already. Oh well, the hunt begins anew... Some day, I'll find one.

Really, this was my fault and mistake. I could have asked more questions. Didn't pay a whole lot, so I don't really care.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

She has sold two more since sending me that Second Chance offer, and both of those went for well over $120...
I do not think she will offer any more sceond chance offers.
As I said, I was very lucky.

My Kara-Tur overlays have the same code as Mars mentioned: 1031XXX0705

I checked with another friend in town and their set also has the 1031XXX0705 overlays too.

Do you know if there are any distinguishable printing of this set (different logo, etc)?

Asking Ebay sellers about this, one responded so far.  It has the 1031XXX0705 ones so this seems to be a good sample size for confirming this oddity.  Curious if any inserts have dates on them, that'll help some as well.

Prices have gone up since the recent passing of Dave Arneson, however I still think this was a fair price for the condition.  I have other NM ones of various printings but I can always add more ;)

My FLGS is kinda sparse.  But earlier in the day and 90 minutes away I picked up some goodies for a dollar apiece:
  • CB1 (fair condition)
  • CB2 (fair condition)
  • Dark Chateau (grey version, spinewear)
  • Ice Daemon (Dark Conspiracy module, still shrinked)
  • Minion Nation (Dark Conspiracy boardgame expansion, still shrinked)

I don't normally have anything to post in the "TSR Fun Finds" but I picked up a really nice D&D OCE boxed set from craigslist for $100 Canadian and it arrived today.  

The guy originally had it listed on Kijiji for $300 and I sent an offer of $100 which he declined and said he already had other much higher bids.  Then a month later he had it posted on Craigslist for $100 :)

Also, I recently obtained a GaryCon T-shirt from Bill Cousino (married to E. Gygax).  He bought one of my Ebay auctions and upon receipt sent me the shirt for free.  Thanks again Bill!  The front is a big TSR Lizard logo.

You could try and get a hold of the organizers and see what's left?  Maybe Frank (exTSR) has the contact info (and/or) could bring some leftovers to NTRPG Con?

I had a choice of Medium or XXL from what was left over so you might be in luck.

Alright! Which one of you scurvy sea-dogs nabbed this one!!




** expired eBay auction **




It originally listed as a 99¢ (?) auction. Then without my knowing, seller changed to a $50 BIN. Somebody stole this one... AND IT WASN'T ME!  :cry:
