"YULEE, Fla. (AP) -- Stumped about what to give that special someone this Christmas? How about some rhino poop? The International Rhino Foundation is auctioning separately on eBay four pieces of dung from the endangered species and will use the proceeds to fund conservation efforts. The pieces come from four of the five types of rhino: white, black, Indian and Sumatran. The Javan rhino is so rare, a sample could not be collected."

Will trade for Javan rhino poop, but it's gotta be FRESH.


You see, that's the thing about collecting.  There's always something that is an instant "rare."

How many rhino poop collectors will be lining up to fight next time a Javan rhino turd plops down on Ebay?

The bidding's gonna be nuts!  8O

Probably not many. I'll have to be content with creating a website to archive photos of collectible Javan rhino poop, with a forum to discuss rhino poop & its sentimental nostalgic associations, plus threads to alert members of any rhino poop which appears on eBay. Then I can at least make unrealistically low bids to feel like I'm a big-shot collector of collectible Javan rhino poop.

Yes...save your big money for Javan rhino poop still in the shrinkwrap!

Anyone else here bored at work today?

Not an eBay listing but for anybody looking for a copy of Beyond the Mountains of Madness to use for gameplay, Chaosium has one listed at 50% off in their "Boo Boo Books" section.

Ben Burns has three self-published modules up on Ebay.  They are $3 each and the shipping is free.



I bought all three and had both Ben and the artist sign them.



Who knows?  Future rares?



(These are AD&D modules, by the way)

I bought them 3 months ago and it wasn't pdf, and for the same price... It is astonishing that Ben Burns sell them as pdf since he can sell them in printed format (its are very cheap products)...

Collectables or not, who knows... but Ian class them as "future collectables" on afterglow2 http://www.afterglow2.com/Product/Burns.htm

What would possibly make these future collectibles? Who is he?

As far as I know the only rpg projects he has been involved in are his modules.  They are fairly good and usable with the older AD&D system so it appeals to most of us here.  As far as collectability goes, currently it seems like his plan has been to print up a bunch of copies, sell them, then wait a while and repeat.

What makes them a future collectible is probably the fact that at some point he will stop making them available and disappear into the woodwork.  Then 10 years later someone wanting to collect nonTSR stuff will want it and have a hard time finding it.

Not rare... uncommon... Easy to find in France, and most of them are in shrink.

It exists a lot of cartoon books in french copyrighted TSR, and they rarely goes for more than a few €.

Blade Runner boardgame:

One of these was sold in the rarities auction at Gen Con.  IIRC it went for almost $1000.  Less than 100 were made and never released to stores.  8O
