I recently picked up a Kingdoms of Kalamar box set, still in original shrinkwrap.  I originally picked it up to be used in a campaign but have since had second thoughts (staying Greyhawk, for the record :)).  I was wondering - does this hold any particular value?  I've kept an eye out in eBay, but haven't seen any action over tehre (expect for the 3e stuff) and there are two available on Amazon...lol Amazon.  So I was wondering if anyone knew a rough estimate on what it would be worth, if it would garner any interest if listed on eBay (in your professional opinions'), etc.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

The original box set, yeah it would garner interest.  Sadly while I have the books, I don't have the map from that box set - but then do have it from the 3e products.  As for price not so sure in that department.

This one doesn't garner too much interested on Ebay and hence not a very high price.  I picked up a copy for $10 off of Ebay 2 years ago?  Most of the 3e Kalamar items don't sell for much and most gamers don't know or don't care that there are earlier Kalamar items.

It also doesn't help that the contents of the boxed set was also sold separately and are easy to find.

Probably not a whole lot of interest, but everything is fickle on eBay so you never really know, and it depends on how its listed, and advertised. But, they're not rare or anything -- I have one sitting next to the opened one. And, like Mars said, the contents were sold separately, so all the box really does is keep them together.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

I picked up a set in an Indy game store for $10 I think, in 2007.  Mine doesn't have the maps either, so on that basis, if you plan to get rid of it, I'm potentially interested, Lord Dynel :D

I'll probably post it - more for someone else to get some use out of it than to make mad cash on it  :P.  I just thought it odd that there wasn't hide nor hair of it on eBay.  That's not indicitive of a gold mine, by any stretch of the imagination, but I thought it said more then there being 16 of them there.  :)

From what I remember off hand, the boxes are pretty cheap and crush/get tattered easily as well.

It is always tough to know makes a good collectible.  If it is any consolation I think the value should be more in the $25-$30 range but the early Kalamar items just don't seem to be sought after.  Maybe when 3rd Edition becomes collectible, more people will want the Kalamar D20 items and then realize that they were based on system generic Kalamar items.  A number of the D20 Kalamar modules are also reprints/compilations of harder to find small digest sized adventures but they don't seem to sell for anything either.
