I would really like to know that as well. Maybe Frank can tell us how many of those he has seen in all his auction days. I am thinking not too many survived if there were ever that many sold.


Here's a link to a completed auction that has a photo of the contents and a bit of a description.

Didn't Avalon Hill bookcase games have huge print runs, much larger than TSR products? Although, maybe not for this product. Plus, unsold copies may have been destroyed.

Not sure the deal is all that great but I have always been intrigued by these when I saw them up for auction. Placed a token bid and got luckly. I know they sell for more so I am guess the level of use is the reason they went so low.

What on earth was that doing in there?!
*looks around at the seller's other items (mostly now with $1 bids) and can't see any reason other than a temporal rift*

A bit of a glut after two on eBay in five years, IIRC.

(Same seller's dark green copy was $31 back in 2004).

   On this auction listing, the seller has posted a question by another seller, announcing that another complete set will soon be up for auction.

   What kind of doofus advertises the fact that bidders will have another chance soon if they miss this one?

I don't usually pick up Judge's Guild stuff but thought I would take a stab at this one.  The price seemed reasonable even if the condition isn't quite so great.  What do good copies of these prints of Tegal Manor and City State usually go for?

I was just thinking that I should move it to JG forum.  I will post some inquiries there when I get the item.  Thanks KJ.

np chummer. kicking myself i didnt wait to run and whack a bid on it. :D

some nice interesting bits. my thoughts initially are that when you section off each relevant bit, you will be left with spare maps.

but hey ppl are always on the lookout for them and you can always find the books that the spare maps relate to as well :D

The auction looked good up until "all of these have water damage and mildew", at which point I backed out... :?

Fingers crossed that'll work out.

A lot of the items this seller has up lately have been pretty mildewey.  I'll have to read the document here on how to clean up mold and mildew.  I'm hoping the books will be half decent though.

Aye. Was noted right from the start and most, if not all, turned out OK.
I was perhaps overly-wary in a few cases (the CA, for example), but I haven't read (m)any of their's that actually stated "mildew" rather than water damage, etc.

Ya know the drill! If it works out well, you're ahead there. :)
Not a "risk" I'd take, though.

Yeah my CSWE from that seller had some water damage on the cover sheet, and barely on an edge of one of the books, though thankfully no mildew. He is a good seller, and I think you'll be happy with that auction.
