How many variations were there of the RPGA slipcase?  
I have all light purple ones, are there any other colors?  
I have some that have the RPGA logo on the outer case but not the inner sleeve case.  
And I have them where the RPGA logo is on the outer and inner cases, and there seems to be some kind of sticker residue below the logos on these as well.  
Does anyone know from the ones they've seen or have?

I had at least 8 of them.  All were purple.  Some had the logo on the outer case only, others had it on the inner case only.  I do recall sticker residue below the logo on one of them.  But i got it used, so i didn't know anything about it.


rhea..

The first run, created to my specs, was all light grey-blue. Reprints varied, generally darker & more purplish iirc.
They react poorly to sunlight and dust.

My friends Dave & Gary made a quantum leap in the human soul. Remember them.

That's what you get for using drow labor.

A NM condition one would likely sell for $100-150.  They could sell for more, since most slip cases that come up for sale are not in the best condition.  This is due to them typically being used to store books, and as ExTSR mentioned, not holding up very well over time.

There also haven't been a lot that have come up for sale recently that weren't part of a collection of a renowned person, such as Larry Elmore or James Ward.  Four of the most recent ones that were sold on eBay were from their collections.  That has probably skewed the valuations, since they sold for between $240-$840.

I can attest to this, as I have about 40 of them in various sun-kissed conditions....

A lot of 8 full slipcases (i.e. half slipcases that combine to make full slipcases) recently sold for about $650 iirc. So that would be $80/slipcase or $40 for a half-slipcase.


Shrink is not a condition
