That rings bells for me, though moreso on the woodgrain box vs. the black one.  I'm sure David or some other black/woodgrain fox folks could confirm.

I've had 2 GG Tractics - both what I am calling 1st prints and have verified a  2nd print where the books are revised.  All of the boxes had labels on top but as increment said, the glue on them is spotty - at least 2 of 3 had started peeling off (don't remember the 3rd one).  I don't recall any other GG products in boxes without labels either.  I think there is a boxless printing of Dunkirk where a label is included - maybe you were suppose to find your own box and glue it on.

Is this 3 original Greg Bell artworks, 1 Sutherland (the Stirges) and 1 other (looks like Jeff Dee boots on that swordsman...)? Or are these copies?



Anybody find out what the name is written in the Men & Magic book?

What are you thinking, Rakeesh?  That the seller is misinformed, or that the Acaeum listing is misinformed?

Errata sheets in a 1st print?  Possible, I suppose, in a scenario where the errors were noticed after the booklets were printed but before the boxed sets were distributed.

Thoughts?

I suppose it is plausible, that errata sheets were included in some 1st print box sets.  One option might be that these were the last few box sets sold, perhaps even left behind and sold much later - after the errata sheets for the 2nd print were printed.  In the same way that Chaosium now, still discover the occasional lot of older material in their storage - and sell it through the website alongside the later print stuff.  

More likely I suspect is that the original owner got (e.g. purchased, was sent, got it with something else etc..) the errata sheet later and put it in the box.  One of the reason I like box sets in D&D, and other roleplaying games, is that the boxes are handy for sticking all sorts of useful stuff in.  Old D&D boxes often come with supplements, bits of magazines, photocopies, homebrew adventures, odd dice etc...  :D

More broadly I don't get the impression from this seller that he is super-serious about selling.  Considering what it is (and he clearly knows that it will attract some attention), not that much detail, not that much information, money orders only...  I maybe maybe might be tempted to put in a low offer, but not going anywhere near $4.8k  (besides I bet he doesn't sell to non-US countries).  Or I could spend more money on Xmas presents for the family :D

Anyone interested in this mod that was listed on eBay should visit the forum discussion at ToT.

Or we can just continue to discuss it here unabated.  I mean after all this is the premier D&D collecting site on the web...

This sounds like a discussion from a while back over on Dragonsfoot.  Maybe they are just the premier site for D&D discussion - I can't remember.

I think these might be the "Prints from Dungeons & Dragons" set 2: Witch, Hippogriff, Wizrds Fighting, Barbarian, Werewolf.   They are listed in the catalog pages of a number of GK logo'd early books.  So I don't think they are original drawings but rather larger prints.

At one point it was proposed to formally add the tagline on Dragonsfoot to something like Dragonsfoot "The premier 1st Edition AD&D site".
