Firstly, apologies if this is dealt with in another thread somewhere.  I couldn't find anything.

I've been having a rummage through my collection, and have realised that I have more than enough original old school D&D stuff to meet the requirements of my future gaming plans.  Therefore, I have decided to sell most of the OSR products that I've bought over the last 10 or so years.

So, my question is whether any of the fairly recent OSR products are particularly sought-after, collectible and/or valuable?  If so, where can I find info on pricing, etc.

Off the top of my head I would say:
Castle Zagyg box set
Dungeon Crawl Classics special edition modules from Goodman Games (numbered as x.5)
Lamentations of the Flame Princess stuff also seems sought after

Actually the DCC mods are in fact 3E or 3.5E, so not truly OSR.

I'd say the whole line of CZ products is collectable not only the boxed set.
Then in my mind:
- the EGG hardbacks by troll lord games
- some necromancer items (despite they are 3.5 or pathfinder) like rappan athuk, city of brass,...
- some very peculiar items due to the low print (one is the "spartan edition" c&c white box, another is the spellcraft&swordplay boxed edtion,...)
- useless to add any NTXRPGcon item which has been ever issued!


Edit: i dont know enough about early editions of s&w (the whitebox edition) and osric...

When I sold off this sort of stuff a couple years ago, they were ALL quick sellers. Even items that were still in print. There is demand.

Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, Pendragon, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based, CoC, Runequest

Planning: BRP/Harn
