Howdy All,


Ernie sends his thanks to all Acaeum members who bid! I just got off the phone with him (Ernie is a night owl) and he was very pleased. He hopes that whomever won the adventures and dungeons are DM's who will get a chance to run them!

Thanks from me too. I saw a lot of regulars as well as some new folks. Your continued support of The Collector's Trove auctions is appreciated.

For those interested, the total was just under $3,000 with the Dungeon Hobby Shop Dungeon as the highlight, selling for $1,230! Congratulations to all!


Futures Bright,

Paul

For those who missed the listings, could someone post the eBay links? My search only turns up a few character sheets, while I am more curious about the hobby shop dungeons and other adventure material.

I am surprised that this one did not sell for more.  I think that thefantasymuseum got a steal at $1200+.



Who is thefantasymuseum?  Is he a member here?  I think I knew, once, but cannot remember now.

Thefantasymuseum used to be a member here, under the name TFM. He hasn't posted here though for some time, after a small contretemps over an ST1.



I also thought the Dungeon Hobby Shop dungeon would go for more - $1200 was a bargain.



I was very disappointed not to secure the Wham funny money; I thought my bid would be enough, but alas not.



Regards



Mike

You know, the whole time tfm was here, I never once realized that "tfm" stood for "thefantasymuseum".  8O

It also took me a long while to figure out "gyg" is "gotyourgames".  :wink:

Have I really been a member since 2003?

Howdy Mike,

Thanks for that. It was really a pleasure working with Ernie. He is just as down to earth as his dad.

The best part of all this is that I get to see all of this stuff first hand and get to interview these folks with every auction. It is forming a tremendous historical document that would otherwise be lost.

I am hoping to have an auction history website for The Collector's Trove - a place where collectors and RPG players can go and see the images and descriptions of these great treasures.

BTW nice avatar, if you ever decide to part with that let me know. :)


Futures Bright,

Paul

Actually, I think the price for the DHSD was in line with similar items I have auctioned and actually did somewhat better. I think it really affects the price when the dungeon is not associated with a published product. That tie-in really needs to be there to send the bidding sky-high. The shared-experience is the thing. Also, not everybody collects unique things.

Yes, that was a very nice item, especially being signed by Mary and Gary. Don't think you'll find another like it.

Well, I have to get back to saying goodbye to yet another trove of wonderful items. :cry: I'm going to miss them but it was nice to have known them.

Paul

Thanks. I appreciate the good words.

A bid that falls short here will give you more to bid on the next treasure around the bend!

Speaking of which, I have a surprise auction coming up on April 1st, before the Kevin Hendryx auction in late April/early May. So I better get crackin'!

I really think an Acaeum-to-eBay translation table is in order.

my ebay title seems to be bidder7 or bidder3  :)

but it's usually djb_astro

I chipped in over $1000 for the Dungeon Hobby Shop dungeon and thought I might be in with a shout but was always expecting the snipes from the usual suspects.

Nice win.:(

I've got to say I much prefer seeing who's bidding.
