Even though this copy is a little bug munched, I do not understand how this one got past the FBI/T&T collectors.

The last one I recall seeing on e-Bay sold for close to $200 and it was not in much better shape than the copy above that sold for the opening price of $4.95


Those prices, it was a long time ago. Currently, they barely go over $10-15, even 1st print copy. I got several for 1 to 5$. And one first print for 0.99£ too. No bid. Actually, T&T doesn't sell well since few months.

That Starstone is a wonderful piece, John!

I picked up Grenadier Bulletins 1-7 this morning, as well as the recently-unsold Grenadier gold basilisk.  My big buy, though, came at GaryCon, where I bought Ian Baggley's wonderful original "Gate" picture, which compliments the "Great Race of Yith" original I bought from him last year.  "Gate" just arrived today (and thankfully I didn't wait longer to  head out and check the mail, since we're supposed to get torrential storms today and tomorrow).  I'll post a pic when I get a chance to scan it :D

I think most of the big T&T collectors have already filled their collections with first prints which is why you've seen the price on these fall dramatically. I've actually seen later solo's sell for more than the originals lately. Why? Good question, but without a doubt Gnat got a great deal on it.

This is one that I just gave up on - way too many prints to keep track of and too many to collect.  I would be very impressed to see anyone claiming to  have a near complete collection of all prints of these.

I have to agree with this.
Perhaps the BIG T&T collectors (whoever you are) can vouch for having stacks and stacks of first prints of them all, but...
The Buffalo Castle book I just aquired is the ONLY ... first print Solo Adventure book I have seen in person, much less owned.
(I have seen a VERY few copies (I think 2-3) sold on e-Bay, but never before have I seen a copy in person)
And that statement goes for first printings of all the other T&T Solos as well.
That is other than the signed limited edition Solo which had just the single printing, of which I must add I have only seen a few of those sold on e-Bay either.

And if you BIG T&T collectors out there truly do have stacks of first printings of all of the solo adventures, then perhaps you would be willing to part with some of those common easy to find and very cheap 1st prints you speak of to us lesser T&T fans.
At the least maybe you would post pictures so as to watch us drool and go green with collectors envy.

I picked up a copy of Fantasy Wargaming by Bruce Galloway et al in a charity (thrift) shop yesterday, which was fun. It was even more fun catching up with all the vitriol aimed at it on the internet.

Finally found a dead tree version of the Pathfinder Free RPG Day module, D0 Hollow's Last Hope.  Some of you probably picked this up back in 2007 when it was first available, but I was unaware of it until late last year.

I haven't posted here for a little while but despite losing out on most of the rare small press items on Ebay, I've still managed to find venues to spend my money.
