I was reading the old threads about DCC#3.5 The Haunted Tower and wondered if there was any more information regarding the number of copies produced. Was it actually 214 or was that just speculation?

It's Haunted Lighthouse.  Do not know the print run.

it was 214 according to GG, IIRC. I'm sure someone here will have the specifics. Stupidly difficult to get a hold of a copy, especially without a signature on the cover. Seems like everyone get theirs signed.

That was pretty much the only Stromberg auction item even that I bid on to win, I thought I'd paid way too much, but haven't seen once up for auction since... that was March 2012, so there you go.  Pretty hard to find, and glad I got one when I could :)

NK has two copies up on ebay $495 for unsigned in VG+ (whatever that means. I don't like their ebay grading) and $695 for an autographed copy.

Ironic, as the unsigned copy seems to be rarer that the signed copy, and they seem to grade their items based on arbitrary subjective bullshit evaluated by monkeys looking through dirty glasses across a smokey room in the dark. :roll:
I wonder if they will ever have the balls to take a photograph of the items they sell and post it in an auction? Or would that drive customers away?

Nice to see their mouthpiece who turned up here to defend their reputation and address their critics achieved nothing in the past two years. There's a guy who knows how to tow the company line. :roll:

The last VG+ item I bought contained mold and mildew - the response I got was that since it no longer smells, it is no longer active, ...

Both  :)

Damned hard to find, and one of the few things I regret flushing from my collection.


Let mirth prevail!
