Howdy,


Just for fun while I was taking photos of the Bill Hoyer collection I set this one up. I was wishfully thinking how cool it would be to have the whole collection mounted and framed in a shadow box:

I think the set is just 3 buckles short of a complete set. Those being a TSR Wizard Face pewter buckle for employees only (sold one in the Dave Sutherland III auction in 2004), an RPGA blue enamel (20 given, 1 to Mentzer and 1 to Bill Hoyer), and an RPGA pewter/red enamel (2 given to the Blume brothers and 1 to Gygax). There might also be a TSR Wizard Face pewter (or gold) with red enamel (2 given to the Blume brothers and 1 to Gygax) but I have not confirmed that yet.


Futures bright,

Paul

I think of the "wizard face" logo as the "man in the moon" logo.

Well you are not alone, there are  21 watchers on it so far and 124 views! That beats all of the other buckles with ca. 15 watchers and 100 views each.

I wonder what it would cost to have buckles made like that with "The Acaeum" on them...

I would buy one of those!
And probably some other Acaeum stuff too - a nice mug (of course), perhaps cufflinks or possibly a dice bag (or box)...

We should do it!

I'd buy something if I could get "The Acaeum" in Quentin EF font. (Original D&D title font. See here.)

Also, how about...

An AD&D 1E module titled "The Acaeum" wherein the adventurers are sent questing to recover several rare tomes including "Thee Would Grane Bochsit".

An Acaeum coffee mug would be pretty cool.

I like the Acaeum mug idea!

Acaeum patches, anyone?
Or even Acaeum dice set(s)--d4, d6, d8, d10, d12, d20, d% (and any others appropriate, like d30).

I will go for a mug, dice sets, and plenty of other miscellanea.  
As to patches... Well Acaeum nicotine patches would be useful for me (cough, cough!)  :D

Here's the division of Bergamot that makes items to order... it's kinda expensive with the tooling for a small number, but it might be doable...
