I was thinking that I had seen those exact pictures before...

I dunno, unless I had paid more for it I'd have been perfectly happy with selling for ~$1500. :D

Apparently, "very valuable" means "1500 more than any other copy." A shame that it did not sell.


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

Seller seems a nice and certainly helpful guy.  Here is his response on the prints: "They all fit nicely in the box, that is no larger than the books.  Probably average 4" x 6"."   That might reduce the probability that they are the once advertised TSR prints. Thought worth mentioning for everyone.

thanks :) :)

HermitFromPluto wrote:It seems quite a divisive issue this 'contact'.

I agree with Brette, I hate the stuff. My heart sinks when I receive an item, which the Seller has neglected to mention is covered in contact. That then becomes a 'play' copy and I will seek another - but invariably I have then paid too much for my 'play' copy.

In the world of book collecting of which we are an offshoot. Contact and library markings drastically reduce the value of the books.

Perhaps we should have a poll?

And I ask you, is a 40 year old with an aesthetic unplayed (but not unread) book collection a gaming pansy?

Or is a 40 year old playing a elvish wizard, seeking cousel with the fairy king in the forest a gaming pansy?  :twisted:


:lol:   No need to get upset Hermit!   :lol:

Besides, it is obvious that we are talking gaming pansy, which isn't the same thing as....say...a football pansy or a military pansy...

Obviously, the gaming pansy is the one who doesn't play an elvish wizard!

But, I was more thinking in terms of the book being a pansy.  In which case I should have said, "...some gamers's pansy shelf."

That is, a shelf where the pansy books are kept.

I am just enough of a romantic to have a preference for the old gaming warhorses...books that got used.  I think the saddest words on Ebay are "never played" or "unread."   :cry:

:D   Just having fun

But we seem to have different slang usage of the word pansy. Here it is equated with 'effeminate man' or 'loser'.

So, 'gaming pansy's shelf' conjured up an image of a foppish man sitting reading a book on floral arrangements, beneath a shelf of gaming books. If you ever saw 'The Goodies', I get a picture of Tim Brooke-Taylor protectively saying 'They're my books!'

:D


I bought #149 a couple of months ago, had only been out of the bag 3 times from the original owner and only paid $1226.00 ... sure I'd take #227 as well.... but probably in the same price range....

The Fringe Dweller spies a T1-4 going cheap with little time left - but alas is that the gleam of the "DREADED CONTACT" he sees on the cover - you be the judge.

That should eliminate alot of members from bidding, should be able to pick this one up cheap for myself.

No need to worry... no contact present. I keep all my stuff in magazine bags, and am sometimes too lazy to remove them for photos.

Aha. A clever ploy to dissuade us contact-haters. I would not have bid had it not been for Mike's correction!  PDT_Armataz_01_22

By the way...my mental image of The Fringe Dweller....

I've settled on a version of Colin Hay in leather armor, carrying a claymore....possibly dressed in ragged Indiana Jones clothing...sort of like a Men at Work meets Road Warrior meets Conan sort of thing.

Oh, and with some sort of vicious marsupial predator as a companion.

Be interesting to see what these go for, given their less than stellar condition.

Opening bid is extremely agressive though.
