By the way, I forgot the name of this store until I was just going through receipts. It's a shop in San Mateo called Gator Games.

Gator Games & Hobby Home Page

There's also a store in SF called Gamescape I remember one of the guys on the forum mentioning, but I've never bought from or been there before.

gamescapesf.net

There's another one in Berkeley called Games of Berkeley, and one in Oakland called Engames I saw listed on RPGnet, but I haven't been to those either.

I can definitely vouch for Christophe is anyone is concerned from buying from a newly registered member.  In the past we've traded items, bought items from each other both on and off Ebay.  He's got some interesting stuff on Ebay right now too.

Welcome Christophe  :D

As Mars said, Christophe is a great person to deal with, and he knows many, many thing about cryptic RPG stuff.
He is in collecting for a long, long time and his collection is just incredible...

Good luck  :D

Hello all,

 My name is Michael and I will be 46 this year. I have been playing or DM'ing since 1980. We started with the basic and expert then went to advanced. We have a current game that has been running on and off since 1985, we play every other Friday. We use advanced DND rules with some second edition stuff thrown in the mix.

 We are in upstate New York. Unfortunately the game / hobby shops in the area do not carry any of the older material.

 I have over 200 pieces or so. So I decided to add to my collection, and started to look about. I found this site and was a lurker for a few weeks. I like the information you have gathered and hopefully with your advice I will be able to add to my collection.

 Thank you for your time,
         Michael

Welcome. This is the best place to come to as a collector. Check out bookstores, charity shops, goodwills, comic books stores, etc... as well as flea markets, bazaars and garage sales around your area, you might luck out.

Otherwise this is the age of the internet. Bargains come up one Ebay. Look in at our classifieds, RPGMarketplace and Dragonsfoot and you can nab some treasures from time to time.

Take a look at the thread about collecting goals and you'll see a dozen different types of collectors and collections (at least).

Patience in collecting is your friend. If you are just starting out you may want to keep your eye on large lots to fill in a lot of gaps, but start setting up ideas for searches to find what you specificly want. Have fun and good hunting.

Welcome and it sounds like a pretty tidy sized collection already! :)
Good luck in your hunting, and as JasonZ says, patience is a virtue (as I am still learning :lol: )

After posting a few threads I thought I would take the time to introduce myself. I am Jon, used to play D&D many years ago with my younger brother and friends down the street, and now collect various TSR and WotC related material as I now just enjoy reading the books in my spare time.

My (insured) collection includes on the order of 1000 pieces including most all books, modules, booklets, boxed sets, etc. from Basic D&D, 1st ed. AD&D, and 2nd. AD&D. I have incomplete collections of Gamma World and 3rd/3.5 ed. D&D as well. I lack any of the truly collectable items (original D&D, RPGA series, R series, brown B3, etc. (mostly b/c I have never had several hundred dollars at hand to spend at once on RPG materials).

Right now I am in the process of collecting some Shrink Wrapped Basic, 1st, and 2nd ed. materials to replace the aging collectables I currently possess and am buying up 3rd/3.5 ed D&D before the prices truly skyrocket. I still don't understand why the 3.5 edition books are so expensive.

Thanks, Jon!

Jon: First... Welcome to the Forums...
My thoughts as to why 3.5 Edition books are expensive is that many young collectors started with it and many older collectors started late to that scene and/or are just now looking to investigate that edition (I am one of those older guys).

The younger players probably sold most (or all) of the 3.5 Edition collection they had to purchase 4th Edtion when it first came out, and then decided 4th was not an improvement over 3.5 Edition and they are now looking to get back to 3.5 Edition.

Welcome Jon!  I'm pretty new myself.  I only have about 50 items so far - but I've collected them all in the past 5 weeks!   :lol:

To date, I'm just beefing up my inventory of items so I can read and use them.  I try to collect good quality, but I don't need SW or mint items.

I still haven't spent > $30 on a single item!  But I've gotten a few good deals here and there..

Welcome!
