Thanks, McDuff! I take back my previous appellation. How did you find those, BTW? Keyword search or just random?

Yep, that looks like it.  Hope he's still there so you guys can get these modules.  Tombs of Valla actually looked pretty good from what I remember.  I imagine he's got plenty more of them since evidently they were self-published.

Did you ever have one of those moments when you grab a book and your heart leaps into your throat?  I never did before today.  The first book I pulled from the shelf at the used bookstore was a near mint Player's Handbook.  Clean white pages with no highlighting, the reference pages were intact.  No yellow angled banner on the cover and centered AD&D and Player's Handbook so I knew it was an earlier printing.  I opened the cover and there's a white flyleaf.  I turned the page, no printing information on the copyright page.  I looked it over three more times JUST to make sure.  Then I looked at the price written in pencil on the flyleaf.  I leaned over to my ten year old son and whispered "we hit the jackpot."  A true first printing Player's Handbook in near mint condition for under $10.00!!!

    The next book I pulled from the shelf was a first printing Dungeon Master's Guide in the same condition as the Player's Handbook.   The final book pulled from the shelf was a 2nd printing Monster Manual so minty fresh that the cover was still tight when I opened the book.

    Not to bad for a days work!

That's it, I'm taking a trip to your state.  I'm having no luck in the bookstores here.  :D

I imagine the little guy has a 17 dexterity and disarmed any traps there might have been.

Once we discussed it, and I showed it to him, he got pretty excited too.  I got him started collecting about two years ago and I've been trying to teach him how to identify printings and how to grade books.  So he understood when I showed him the flyleaf and we looked at the copyright page and didn't find a printing.

>> I debated bidding on the H1 lot, but I'm not in the reselling business, so it didn't seem worth it. I believe it is incomplete, too. The seller e-mailed me the contents.

Just for the record, the H1 is complete and uncut.  The box is a little smooshed, but the cutout book of buildings and miniatures is near mint, and the counter sheet is unbroken.  Both books are present.
:D

Other good stuff recently:

Greyhawk folio and 14 mods for $22.05.  Damaged, but some nice ones too.

Moria, Rangers of the North, Erech, Treasure Vault, Darksmoke, and 9 misc. for $7.49.

I inquired about that one too, and they said the maps were missing from the MERP modules. However, considering the bum info I got on H1.........

I'm almost certain the maps are gone.  But sometimes, faith is a better ally than reason.

Congrats to Mike <mdr003> on that "Boot Hill", just sold at $52.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5916712388

Five last-second snipes (and that's just those that made it on to the system). Is that a record?

(How many people actually have a copy...? OK, don't depress me by all answering at once ;))

d.

I don't have one, but it got too much for me.  Similarly, today I missed out on:

Phil Edgren's Book of Monsters for $41 @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEDW:IT

Classic Warfare for $50 @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... RK:MEDW:IT

and, to top it all off, a Silver Anniversary box set for $75 @ http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... eName=WDVW

Yeah, a flurry of activity on Boot Hill in the last few seconds... I was lucky with my snipe, it won at less than a full increment. The seller was selling a few choice items all finishing close together... I bid on Rapier & Dagger and the Book of Treasure as well, but lost out on those. And I see you picked up the Arduin book, another that I put in a bid for (more with hope than expectation though). I think we both paid slightly over the odds though... but Deadlord snapped up a couple of books at a decent price.

All in all though, I was happy to get Boot Hill... that's another of the early TSR books down, and a few more to go.

Regards

Mike
