(Anyone remember that joke auction for 'shrinkwrap' allegedly from H1 that cougar was all over - I think it was someone here (though my memory is notoriously poor!)


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

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.

Only problem with the sale of such manuscripts as the Dungeon Hobby Shop Dungeon.....

Now a famous piece of RPG work is available for only one person to enjoy.  Auctions are quicker, but a pdf of the original might net the same amount of money for the game legend in question.  IF the pdfs were available at a reachable price, I know I'd be buying them.

If Ernie and Terry want to publish the dungeon, I'm sure PPP would be happy to slot it into the publishing schedule :D

We can only hope. I can afford to spend the equivalent of a mortgage payment on a gaming item.  :?

Black Blade Publishing imprint of OSRIC is not only the most definitive printing of OSRIC to date, but also the single greatest resource for old school gamers since the three original hardbacks written by E. Gary Gygax.

neat thought though, one of those things that even in pdf would take up a shelf ;)

With most dungeons, that would be an ideal solution, but did you look at the map of the lowest level?  8O I don't think a huge thing like that could be reproduced to be profitable. Or maybe I am wrong (and then the second question is: did Ernie keep a photocopy? Or absent that, would TFM be kind enough to allow a copy to be made for publication?).

Regardless, one exciting possibility of unearthing treasures like this is an opportunity to publish them, especially for us non-collector types.

The map for Bottle City is 17"x22" and printers can handle much larger sizes if necessary (the original Greyhawk folio maps were both 36"x48").

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





Indeed.  Had I been around for it, the price would have been quite a bit higher.   :D



What an incredible item!

Paul (The Collector's Trove) generally makes an archive copy of the items he sells.

Welcome back!

Well now Stephen, you'll have to be saving your pennies for a certain item coming up at the end of April now won't you? 8)

I do agree with your observation, an incredible item.

That is correct, unless the seller decides against it, such as the Steve Marsh auction and Tim Jiardini auction.

Thanks Paul! It arrived safely and is being framed for display in my library this evening. I was delighted to win this so cheaply. It is a great addition to the collection. My wife is a little miffed that I paid that amount for some that is only 12 x 9 though. I tried to explain the historical and collector value of the piece and the signatures, but she does not get it.  Oh well, I love her anyway!!!
