FYI, Paizo's having a magazine clearance sale, including all of their old "new" stock of Polyhedron issues (going back as far as issue #6 currently). Every issue is $3.

Wow, that's pretty cool - wish that had come up a couple months ago when I was filling in low number issues.  Any idea if these would be complete with mailing covers or not?

I don't think they do.. (but you never know until someone asks them...) and for easy reference these are the poloys that have mailing covers..

1-12 no
13-86 yes
87-100 no
101-143 yes
144-148 no

For Dragon I have the CD-ROM set, along with a fair number of earlier issues, including No. 1. I also have all of the Strategic Reviews.

I do have a complete set of Metagaming's Interplay, and also a complete set of an amateur 'zine called "The Vindicator". My collection of The Space Gamer is also pretty extensive, having all the earlier issues from 2-39 and many later ones as well. Still missing No. 1 in spite of valient efforts on fleaBay to pick one up.

I asked about the individual issues I needed, and they do have the mailing wrappers.  So if that matters to anyone, you should check.  The general answer I got seems to imply that they will have the mailing wrappers, but I'd recommend following up on specific issues.

I voted that I have a complete set of Dungeon even though I am missing issue 113.  It's just a matter of months before I complete it.  And anyone having an extra issue to sell/trade is welcome to PM me. :D

I have a lot of Dragons, but I have little interest in completing the set.  I have from about early 20s to low 200's with a dozen issues missing.  I don't collect any other mags.  In fact, I'll be selling quite a few WD's later this year, but none are low numbers(high 100's and up if I recall).


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Just picked up TSG No. 40, so now I have 2-45 plus a number of later issues.

Unrelated to magazines in general but related to TSG/Metagaming I won (for a rather princely sum) two unopened Metagaming TFT Microtures packages. Never seen them in the original packaging before. Neat stuff!

I have a few with the mailing covers, but not all that many. There was one in particular that I hunted for, because it had some varient TFT rules ("IQ 6 talents"), but otherwise I've not obsessed over finding them with the covers. However, that does make your collection all the more valuable, IMHO.

Oh, yeah, and we're both going to be fighting tooth and nail over No. 1... :twisted:  That's a toughie to get; I've only seen a couple of them available, one of them I think from Kevin Hendryx's auction a couple years back.
