I have the folded up version of that map that came with the 1st printing of the MERP world book.

A very nice map, and well detailed. *muses*...one for the wall might not be a bad thing.


Indeed.  I need to check this thread more often ... I'd have bidded in on this one.

Auction just ended and not sure what thread to put this item on, but it was a bit of an eye-opener anyhow.
Thought my snipe was high but turned out to be a long way off the mark. :lol:


1979 T&T calendar; $69

(Must admit I haven't seen one before, so maybe it is a "fun find" for the winner. Dunno... :?).

Was very happy to snap up Space Gamer issue 1 - first one I've seen on ebay ever. Seller was Ben Ostrander - SG editor from #8 to #26. Mag arrived today and it is in absolutely MINT condition - looks like it just came off the press. I doubt it has ever been read, and apart from a minute amount of staple rust you would think it was produced yesterday.

It's possible that the item also belongs on the silly auction price thread, but there were a few of us bidding $300+. The seller also has a number of other issues up right now from 5 to 14, if anyone needs any of those.

Regards

Mike

That was a great find, those are truly hard to find. I auctioned off the first 20 issues or so about 10 years ago on rpg.marketplace, and I think I got $300 for the entire lot!!! :( But they were in very used condition, still, if I had hung on to them...oh well. If I had hung on to a lot of stuff I'd be better off now (maybe my waist when it was size 36 or so....)

Erm, I kinda got the feeling I was gopher for that auction; trying to find out what <kent_allard_jr>'s bids were, solely so that Mike could pounce.
Even with the bid he put in right at the start, the closing price would've been $305.

Far too rich for me, sorry.

Persistence with the seller was still worthwhile, though.
Picked up #2 for $24; mint, of course
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5195763136

(and then arranged for a signed run of #3-9 to go with that, which is why I've been quiet on the topic! :)
I only just asked/rec'd a response in time before the others were listed, and even had to have #6 "pulled"...).

Ben's great to talk with, btw! :D
Did a excellent job putting that 'zine together, back in the "dark ages"! 8)

(Steve Jackson took over at #27 and Ben went on to many other things)

Heya, Al!

Oops... Is here, but not opened yet. :oops: (Got a two-week backlog delivered at the weekend).

Have you gone and sent two "L" installments, instead of two "I"s, by mistake?

*looks at clock*. will investigate later... ;)
Thanks for checking! :D

Ah, the memories ... SG #27 was the first gaming purchase I ever made with "my own money" (money I had earned myself, in other words; my dad had paid for some earlier D&D purchases). For many years thereafter, a monthly (or bi-monthly) purchase of SG was built into my meager gaming budget ...

Ack, I'm veering off-topic! Quick, someone post something relevant! :)

Good haul. Those slipped me by, but I wouldn't have gone that high so they'd have been your anyway. There can't be much missing from your personal JG collection now. What are you after?

am after quite a bit of stuff actually. want to get my hands on all the old instalments...most of what i have are 2nd or later prints, bar for a smattering of 1st i have - i have tons o stuff as you know, but starting at the start, i am certainly after:

2 Dungeon Tac Cards
8 Dungeon Level Maps I: Levels 1-5
28 Judges Shield
36 Character Chronicle Cards
87 Character Codex
600 Pegasus 1
610 Pegasus 2
1021 Fantasy Game Aid Pack
1022 Fantasy Adventure Pack
1023 Fantasy Campaign Booster Pack  
1024 Fantasy Campaign Pack
1025 Treasure Pack
1026 Adventure Module Pack
1052 SciFi Game Aide Pack

getting them will prb give me at least 1 of everything (bar for t-shirts and buttons etc) that they put out. but i would like to beef up my JG 1-30 or so really....

so if you wanna offload any of that, then lemme know.

i shoulda been more aggressive on your TAC cards the other month....

Al
