Nice! I just sent him a question asking of he would be prepared to sell off a slice (perhaps one with a bit of a name on it)... would go lovely with some crackers and pickle. And a cup of tea.  :D

No, definitely not, Ralph :D  Oops, and I messed up, too:  I own only one CM (after all, just how much madness does one need to court? :D ), but I do own two copies of Stark Raving Mad---one from Pagan BITD, and I ended up with the second one on the cheap when I bought CM a few years ago.

And apparently the $100 I paid for the 3rd printing Weapons Compendium a few months ago is looking a lot better right now!  8O

I don't think these prices have to be looked as new reference prices... Just insane without reason (oh yes, a big money guy wanted it...)

I agree.  Those prices were all over the place.

IMHO:

Courting Madness - print run 200, traditionally the most expensive CoC item, except maybe for the 1E Designer's Edition box - sold at $256, should have easily been $50-100 higher

Killer Crosshairs - print run 200 but not numbered on the book, no actual CoC content, only has value because it's by Pagan, the later version by Biohazard is $5-10 and has more stuff - insanely high at $308, reasonable is more like 1/3 that, maybe even lower

Anniversary edition - print run 300 - yes, unopened and in the original shipping box is very cool, but $511 seems high to me by about $200 - there are even more limited versions of this and I'd be surprised if they sold for that much  ($500+ is in the range of 1E Designer's Edition at the top of the market, and those are down down down)

Weapons Compendium - print run unknown, but there are at least three printings known, so I think it's higher than the others - I agree with grodog, $204 seems about $100 too high

Walker In The Wastes and Realm Of Shadows Player Aid Kits - print run unknown, but a good chance these are the rarest of the group - $316 each?  I'd estimate these at more like 1/2 that.  Undoubtedly hard to find.  But what's the value?  They're nicer versions of the handouts already provided in the books.  Seems king of silly to pay THAT much for that sort of thing, but everyone has different priorities, I guess.  *shrug*

All the other lower value items were generally in the range of what I'd expect, except the Antarctic Expedition Pack went a little low at $36.  That's pretty hard to find for a Chaosium release, and has been trending up in the last couple years.  I'd see that more at $50-60 for a decent copy these days.  Of course, it's basically handouts like I just railed against, so YMMV.

Now a d20 call of Cthulhu book would not normally make this thread unless at a super-low price (although personally I think the art and layout generally raised the bar for Call of Cthulhu at the time, err, I guess 2002 or thereabouts??).

In any case, this one...

Has mention of signatures. Since I recall that there were particular 5-signature and 7-signature copies on sale at the launch time (same copy, just with lots of sigs), it might be worth asking for a picture (or at least a signature count!). A signed copy ought to be worth wee a bit more I think.

If they shipped to the UK I'd buy it. D20 Cthulhu is a lovely book.

Makes me want to not buy from someone who claimed the name "Gygax".
Praps one of you should grab the seller name "DArneson" (unassigned as far as I can see).

I am really curious of who is this seller selling only rare (or at least uncommon) non-TSR items.

The descriptions/format are close (exact?) to what Kynan uses.  And the prices smell like his prices too.  I'm going to guess that it's someone who bought stuff from him and is now trying to sell it and cover the purchase prices.  This is, of course, just a guess.

The seller has been using the handle Gygax for many years - long before Gygax passed.  I'm sure the bulk of items for sale have not passed through Kynan.  What if I said he was even an Acaeum member.
