What's inside of the Wizard's Workshop catalog? Just text, or pics too? Looks interesting to me!

I'll post more pictures tomorrow. I actually have several of those from different mailings.

People collect these things. I would guess, if they are in very good condition, which it appears they are, they would be worth about $8.00 after 1990 and around $15.00 each for 1985 and earlier on eBay.  I did not do an extensive search, and it's possible the early ones are worth more than that depending on condition.  I'd do more research.  Dragonsfoot has a miniatures forum with more people who actually care about minis.   8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Cool! Thanks! I had completely forgotten that I even had them. I was going through some boxes the other night (yes, after a year in our apartment we still have some things in boxes...  :oops: ) looking for the charger for my Nintendo DS when I found the shipping envelope for the Ral Partha catalog and got curious.  :D

Hey, I've been in my house for over 20 years now, and there are still a few boxes left unopened.  :D

Granted, they have stuff like my old youth bowling league trophies, which I am in no hurry to display at this point (I haven't bowled for almost 15 years now).

I don't really collect minis catalogs, but given the access I have to the internet these days, I do tend to keep them when I find them in lots of other material for research purposes. The ones in PDF form linked on dndlead.com help as well.

I don't feel so bad now. :)
We just really don't have room for some of the stuff we have, but it's too valuable to us to get rid of so....

Like my medals for choir that I got in Junior High School?  :oops:

Much appreciated. The whole '70s/'80s candle fad has a lot of parallels to what was happening in D&D, & much of it would make great terrain for miniatures. E.g., mushroom-shaped candles for B1 In Search of the Unknown.

There is still a Wicks 'n Sticks chain in malls, but it has nothing like this.  Does anyone know anything about collecting this sort of thing, or web resources on it?
