Just won & received this, thanks for the tip. Nice price too, $30 compared to the over $100 I bid on vermillionfire's copy recently. Thanks, Wayne's World of Books, for saving me from such folly by outbidding me that time. You resellers do a real social service.

Of course, that copy had the original plastic baggie for the tokens. Maybe we should add this to the valuation pages: one Hobbit Games plastic ziploc bag, $75 USD.

Very true, but that's often what collectors look for, the raw unpolished beginnings. In this case a rip-off of the Tolkien book covers of the time. JRR himself objected to their goofiness, especially to the emus depicted on a Middle-Earth landscape. Little did he know how prophetic that would be.



CotR apparently went the extra step of honoring the author's wishes by replacing the emus with Flamingos on their version. Also notable is the illustration of Gollum, showing how quickly the character's features had solidified in the general public imagination. John Lennon was considering a film role as Gollum at the time, I wonder how that would have gone.

Gotta love Wayne....he has outbid me several times in the past and paid way more for stuff than I ever would have....saving me quite a bit of money when I later picked the same item up for half of what he paid.  :D

Don't go for the Buy It Now..that's for the rubes.  Those sets are going pretty cheap lately, take a chance on the bid and don't go over $25...!

Great price considering all the stuff, when Noble knight first started selling this set it was always going over $100.00.

It's in very fine condition. I sold it to the seller. There's my stock number on the front.
