Happy collecting,

Argghhh.... the guy listed them in the books category, rather than toys and hobbies.  
That was a very nice pickup.  Kudos...

Oh that stings...

Damn!  Okay Burnie, your karma debt just went up a few notches! :)

THat means, unfortunately, the collecting gods will deign that you over pay for a few auctions now until the universal balance is restored.  Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

MAN!  Both of those for less than 15 bucks!  AOW!

Rahasia got here today!
I'm curious. In the upper right hand corner is the number 300. Not $3.00, all the numbers are the same size and there is no dot. I'm wondering if this was the 300th printing of the run, and they marked it as such to end the run.

Does it look 'over printed' meaning, they printed the cover and then does it look like someone came along after and printed the 300?

Printers do sometimes mark items as lots (or they use to), but I would think they would do that on the back cover in a non-prominent place, not on the cover front.

Maybe it's the 300th printing! :P

Absolutely. Just let me know when you'll be by. Do you go to Foxwoods or Mohegan at all? I'm usually there once a month to make a withdrawal courtesy of the red man, we could hook up and I'd be happy to bring some of my stuff down.

I haven't been in a long time, but it's more for a lack of people to go with than anything.  If I end up going for some reason, or next time I'm heading up to NH I'll send you a PM.  Are you in northern or southern NH?  My family lives in Manchester.

Woohoo!! Tamoachan came! This is by far the mintiest tourney module I've ever seen. Super slight spine wear, couple tiny dents and creases near the spine, no stains, no tears.
The 297 is in black pen, so the 1-100/101-300 theory is wrong in part at least. I do recall 193 being blue marker.
I meant to ask before: Is anyone here able to get in touch with the Hickmans? I'm really curious if they would be able to tell what the print run for Rahasia and Pharaoh was.

Put me down for one too please.

Why I never picked one up at the time I'll never know.

My cousin was given ST1 by someone who was working at the Stoke-on-Trent garden festival.  8O
