As an act of atonement (and a little self interest) I have asked the seller of ST1 to post some larger scans.  He has agreed to do this tomorrow.

And he said that he was happy for the module to be collected in person.

Please don't remind me  :cry: I know which I would rather have. Doh!

I knew it was a mistake having that bottle of wine and a few pints of Bass before I got settled in front of the computer.  :roll:

Yikes! Didn't I get my brown onion torn up for asking about BIN's a few months ago?


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

I can't make out the first book, but it looks like a small press RPG clone or adventure.

The second one, on a guess, has to do with City State of the Invincible Overlord.

The third?  Well, that's 1st edition Boot Hill, by EGG.  The bidder should do reasonably well on that one, if the Boot Hill is in decent shape, and assuming of course that bidders can even find it, since the seller doesn't know how to spell Gygax.  Last one I know of selling on ebay went for around $60.00, give or take about $10.00 in either direction.

I suspect that most people are going to bid on the Boot Hill rulebook and not care about the other two items.

Might just be something to do with the fact you actually got the seller to agree, Frank! :lol:

Heh, heh... don't think that's too difficult, now! (spotted them from the Strategic Reviews, here)

*nods*. Last one was $52 (including five snipe bids):

If you're referring to the book on the left, I believe it's an old T&T solo adventure called "Labyrinth".

Hrmm... we keep saying "undervalued" (and I still agree), yet no-one's pulling out their checkbooks.

I picked up those 11 minty-mint copies of #3 that had been languishing for months at not much more than $12 each.

Other issues are scarcer, it would appear (see Post research tidbits here • Page 2 • Collecting General •  The Acaeum for my request for further thoughts); and yet again #7 is missing from this sale... (and #2, too, although you need to read the full description and/or look at the pic to realise that!)

On the subject of Boot Hill... I notice that the edition currently up for auction is slightly different than the one I won a few weeks ago. Mostly in the art work on the front cover. I'm going to guess that mine was the earlier edition based on the fact that it's artwork is poorer, but can anyone tell me about Boot Hill editions/printings and their differences?

Current auction: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5923753014

My auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5916712388

The Boot Hill book is a 2nd print.

ah, I just presumed that other auction was the same edition, for some reason. Hmm.... looked too quickly.
You've got the first edition, I'm fairly sure. Saw another copy on Titan Games ($100) and on a French website, some time back. Can't find those again, now.
Don't know what the date for that other one is, though. Sorry can't be of further assistance.

(aside: Some reprints of other early TSR goodies are far more difficult to tell, I think. For EPT, you have to ask the seller about the items on the catalog inside the back cover...).

====

ed.

ah, Whitewash City -  Game Rules Page ...

I thought the later edition date mentioned elsewhere (1979) was too late. Would guess that one up for auction is 1977, then...??
(Still rather late for a GK monogram, and not a "collector's edition" *g*)

Page Not Found

The last one went for a song: excellent condition, but missing a couple of sheets, if I remember rightly...  Silly me for not bothering, even though it was of no great interest... (*ponders reasons for collecting for a second*)
Anyhow; this one has all the sheets (stated), but is a little bit rubbed... *waves to previous auction winner* :D

David.


p.s. I'll say one thing, John: you're quick enough off the mark!

Presume this has been well-spotted, but just in case;

H2 in SW: $23 with 14 hours to go (UK seller, I'm afraid... We seem to have quite a lot of the good stuff, over here)
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... 5922817169
(a few other SW items on the seller's list at reasonable prices which might make it worthwhile to ship over: C1, N1, I6, RS1, etc.)

And one more reminder on those interesting posters a few pages back, and that (to-be-sniped?) US-only "War of Wizards":

Can anyone identify what the left and middle books are in that?  It looks like the middle one is an old Judges Guild Guide to the City State (how much are those worth?) and the left one is a "Labyrinth"?

It's been a while since an ST1 was for auction so it should be interesting to see how much it goes for.  I don't recall burnie having one so...  :wink:

Frank, was this question from you .... ?

The line about "I am prepared to bid quite a bit" really made my afternoon :-)

I hold my hands up (again)  :oops: But I'm going to keep trying until it works.  Maybe I should start small.  Say a B2 or something.  Either that or I need lessons from Frank.  :wink:

Quick because I spotted it at work.  Tempting prospect.  One still in shrinkwrap.  Even if it is split.  Good excuse to tear the whole lot off.
