Well, my Pegasus #1 arrived. It had some other stuff inside, things I didn't know about or want... nothing spectacular, I guess:

Excalibur Comic Book (says its from Feb 86)

Marvin Freeman Topps baseball card

"Halcyon Daze" card -- some kind of political card set I guess?

Jawless Fish card -- no idea what the hell this came from...

So, if anyone wants any of this stuff, let me know. I think I'll trash it.

Let Goodwill or another thrift store deal with it.  Or include them in books that you sell/trade/donate.  Spread the joy.  :)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200588177690

Character Codex 1st Print; Probably valued at about $40 (+/-) been trying to get one for YEARS... never have seen a copy sell for under $35.
Not saying it has not happened, just have not seen it myself.

Citadel of Fire 1st/2nd Print ($20 +/-) not that rare, but my first copy...

Some other book I never IDed between them in the single picture.

First print M&T Set One, Plus at least one other of the M&Ts in the binder (I figure all three sets are there).

A DM Screen  Maybe $10...

A Bunch of miscelaneous papers, including some yellow sheets that probably would belong with a 1st Print set for SCIO (see below).

At least nine JG Maps, most (if not all) of them SHOULD have gone with the other listing from the same seller that ended 2 hours earlier.
(I bid on it too, but not enough)
That one had the City Book for CSIO (1st Print), Booklet J (Thunderhold), Booklet I and a Greyhawk book.


** expired eBay auction **


Should list this one under the one that got away... Sighs...  :?

I was the 2nd bidder on the lot with the Codex. Nice price indeed. I should have bid higher :(

Bolded: Photocopy of the adventure in Dragon #78.  I think I have this and other photcopies from Dragon magazine in a lot I got years ago.

The yellow sheets I believe are the Judges Shield or at least 2 panels of it.

Could be a good price if the same person bought both lots and correctly sorted things out.

yes, that was what I was trying for....
But I had to leave for a while and got back moments after the first listing ended.
Was first looser on that one. :cry:

However, I have copies of every book in that first lot anyway. 8)

Well it finally arrived with a couple of other listings I bought from the same seller.

From this E-Bay lot I recently purchased.

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **



The lot consisted of mostly loose papers and other items in two manila folders and a 3 ring binder.



Character Codex is in decent shape, though a few pages were removed at the perforation (I think all are present though).

My first copy (any printing and this one is a 1st print).



The Citadel of Fire is VF to NM.

It is a First Edition, 2nd Print.

My first copy (any printing)



Plaag was right about the adventure book at the top between the Codex and Citadel being a module removed from an issue of Dragon Magazine.

Good eye Plaag, and I never doubted you of course...  8)



Both of the Monsters & Treasure Assortment Sets are first prints and in very good condition.

Unfortunately there was no Set Three present.

Image



Also found a 1st print Dungeon Geomorphs Set One...

Unfortunately the guys USED THEM!

Is it all cut all up and taped to notebook paper with additional dungeon levels with detailed room notes by the DM.

Looks like a fun dungeon to me.



There were some full sized Judges Guild Maps as well.

A Full set of City State of the Invincible Overlord (2nd Print Maps with the copyright date),

The Judges four-piece and Players single piece map complete and all are in very nice condition.



Also there was a Judges and Players copies of the Thunderhold Maps... which brings me to the following items...



A full set of the small J Maps: Hole punched but still in very good condition.

Not all that long ago, I paid something like $36 JUST for these same Four sheets of paper...

And I was fairly pleased I got them for that much back then too, as they are pretty hard to find.

Image



A full set of the I Maps, heavily written on and crinkled too; obviously well used…

Image



These next item linked below was partly shown at the bottom of the single picture in the listing.

They are First Print Judges Guild Judges Chart Cards.

Never seen them in person before.

No NOT the thin sheets of paper that have the Judges Charts on them, but heavy stock cards.

Three Cards, Double Sided (Six Charts in all).

The VERY HARD TO FIND Judges Screens.



Image

VERY Heavy wear and heavy staining as well.

Still a nice find, even if not in good condition.



Overall, I was starting to become a little disappointed, though at this point I have NO DOUBT I paid a good price for what is listed above.

Actually a really good price.



That is until I finally dug down to the back end of the 3-ring binder and saw this.



Image





Unfortunalety, it is nearly worthless as the metal clips are not present... 8O



HOLD ON A SECOND!!

I think I just found ONE of those little metal clip thingies...

Looks like it was used to create a home made spinning room puzzle dungeon level...  :lol:

Had a chance to play this game for the first time last year at the North Texas RPG Convention.
It was a LOT of FUN!

Circus Maximus, 2nd Edition Box Set
Complete even with the mail in card.
Very Fine Box with minor bits of shelf wear only.
NM Contents, none of the play sheets on the tear off pad have been used and all are present (best I can tell) with unpunched counters.

The unpunched part is Great and Sort of a bummer at the same time.  :?  
I want to play it... but I also do not want to punch the counters.   :(  

I think the counters are gonna have to get punched out of the sheet...

Yes, good idea, now trying to figure out how to make then heavier than paper though.
Perhaps cut pieces of cardboard and glue the paper to them?

You could also laminate them, John.

Some printers can take heavier card stock, though not anything as thick as the board AH used for counters. You would need to leave the alternate paper eject bay (or whatever the correct term is) open so the stock stays flat rather than curling in a loop.
