I'm sure this is covered somewhere on Acaeum, but what was the last product produced for First Edition AD&D?

I know they made several items under the 1st label, but they had 2nd edition links i.e. the Greyhawk hardcover. My collecting is pretty much restricted to D&D and First Edition AD&D; and I am what I will call a casual collector: Prefer to get most stuff, don't need shrink or Mint, but nice clean items.

I used to buy all the stuff when it came out up through DragonLance (which I personally thought was the TSR's real Descent into the Depths), so I do not have a great grasp of what came next...


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Trick question:  The answer is L3, 1999.
:P

The first module I recall specifically stating that it was compatible with 2nd Edition was WG8 Fate of Istus, which I believe shipped in March of 1989.  Notably, this was actually a 1st Edition module, so I believe this was the last one.  See Page Not Found

The Player's Handbook (as opposed to Players) shipped in April of 1989, and the DMG in June, according to the "Coming Soon" bits in Dragon magazine and catalogs; but I don't recall seeing either until August (admittedly I was not in a big city at the time).  So I suppose anything marketed for March 1989 release could also be a contender.  (FR7 Hall of Heroes, 1st printing, perhaps?  I'd have to look again.  But it's a sourcebook, not a module.)

Looks like March 89 was the cut-off. Thanks for the info.

Love this site...
