I was surprised to stumble onto really nice copies of Avalon Hill's 1914 and Afrika Corps at a thrift store for $4 for the pair.  They look like the 1960's printings but in surprisingly sharp condition, and don't really look like they could be that old.  Does anyone know of a website like Aceaum for old Avalon Hill games?

You can try www.boardgamegeek.com, they are usually excellent with almost all these types of games.  Here is some info on "1914" from 1968:

"1914" from 1984:

"Afrika Korps" from 1964:

Hope that helps.  :)

I've picked up a couple dozen Avalon Hill games from thrift shops usually between 50 cents to $5.  Over the past 4 years, I have probably picked up about 30-35 including a number that are in perfect condition: unpunched counters, perfect boxes.  I've had 3 or 4 copies of Acquire, 2 copies of Rail Baron, 2 Tactics II, 2 D-Day, 2 Blitzkrieg, etc.  Most are from the early to mid 70s.  I think they were probably produced in larger numbers that one might casually think.
