That Catapult Run looks near flawless.  Puts the rest of the stuff to shame.  8O

I finally got my PEGASUS #1



A nice price - a couple of coffee stains on the back of an otherwise nice copy.

Nice grab Mark, looks nice from the cover, and besides who reads the back anyway :)

Congrats!

On a trip to a backwater town in BC, where I was visiting my Dad, I thought I'd check out a couple of game stores and I picked up a copy of Drow of the Underdark for 3.5. It's htf back home, and I definitely wasn't expecting to get it on a whim, and at 3/4 cover price (after some talking) as well.
No plans to move there though--my Dad and I couldn't cohabit the same place. <smile>
But there's lots of room for more gaming tables up here when the influx starts.

One step closer to completing my Metamorphosis Alpha-related collection:




** expired eBay auction **




Now if I could just find WD 1 in comparable shape at the same price :).

Could not hit the BIN fast enough on this:




** expired eBay auction **




I believe I have just 5 copies and the supplement to go before completing the collection.

As it has now safely arrived in Australia (extremely well packed I must say), I will confess I was the winner of this item:



http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... 0517613827



It has been on my Most Wanted list since I started collecting roughly 10 years ago and it is the first one I have ever seen.



I noticed five people including myself attempted to snipe with bids well over $100 in the last 30 seconds and I know some must have been fellow members. Sorry guys and gals, I just couldn't let this one get away!!!!

Nice pickup!  I would have been in on the bidding as well if I was around and saw the auction.  Its definitely a nonTSR gem.

Wonderfull win. I was one of these bidders. I didn't think that so many guys would bid. I should have bid higher :(

I am really envious. The first copy I saw.



I asked the seller when he listed it, and he said that his father in law was a friend of Dillow and played with him back in the 70's. This copy was given to his father in law directly by Dillow. A piece of history!

the only one i had ever seen before this one is the one i own, and i doubt  mine is in as good shape (have to check later), nor is it signed by Dillow. Very cool, congratulations!
