Those of us who collect Judges Guild stuff, know that while many items are easy to find and for the most part VERY cheap.

Some items are without question really tough and sometimes expensive.

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **





Escape from Astigar's Lair; a 1st print.  

I think this item is more uncommon than the list indicates, though I could be wrong.

I for one have been looking for a decent copy for a long time and had not even seen a thrashed one since... well I dont recall seeing any copies at all.

Apparently I am not the only one who REALLY wanted a copy either as one bidder pushed the price beyond where I thought I would get it for.

Almost threee times the listed price for a Near Mint copy according to the latest pricing index... (2006). 8O



Same seller.


** expired eBay auction **




Lara's Tower was another item I never could find for some reason.

Though perhaps I am the only one, since the bidding did not go nuts on it.

Ending at under $6.



A different seller (from Australia) sold me my first copy of Ravenscrag, which just arrive this afternoon!

Although it is not as hard to find as the items I listed above, most of the ones I have seen were listed at $30 USD or more plus shipping and some were often not in very good condition.

This one includes a NM book and NM Maps...

I paid only $14.99 Aussie, plus shipping $15.40 Aussie.



Not counting EVERY printing of every item:

And for the fact that I am not even trying to get any of the Travelor/Sci-Fi JG stuff, though I have a half box full (mostly from accidental aquisitions, as in large lots)



So, other than a huge stack of true rares and a bunch of Catalogs (Which I have not tried to chase) I am nearing completion for Judges Guild "Fantasy Related Products".

Anyway; my newest Judges Guild aquisitions above have put me a few steps closer... :D

Hmm.

My name is Brian and I'm also suffering from print addiction. It all started with OD&D supplements...

I don't have an Astigar's 1st (Grrr ) but i think i've a couple of Lara's. I'll check if I've got a spare I'll mail it.

Hi!



My name is Shane and while I too am an addict I could say I am also the cause of some of your addictions.  I may have pushed the product onto you: http://www.acaeum.com/jg/index.html You didn't have to use it :wink:



((Regarding the Escape from Astigar's Lair 2006 date - you are looking at the 'page updated' column, you need to look at the far right column 'price updated'

Also this item:  
** expired eBay auction **
you missed by over a month. Though I could say it deserves more of a rarity rating then what it has as that item has sold 6 times not counting yours.  About 1-2 a year since 2008.  I'll have to spend some time looking over the data and update some of these products.))

with regards to Astigars Lair...if y'all will remember, some time back i bought a ton of stock off some woman and i had 8 copies of this in 2 m-bags i got way back then.



the last one sold about a year ago.



i think it IS a rare item for judges guild product. don't personally think the value of it is anything exceptional, but in the end, someone will pay for it if they want it enough :)



best



Al

Ah!  I was watching that auction.  (At least, I am assuming it is the copy I saw on eBay from Australia recently.)  I almost went for that copy.  ;)  I still am seeking a copy of Ravenscrag.  Glad I didn't step on yer toes.  I'll haveta keep my eyes peeled for another one for myself.  heh  ;)

Yes, it is the only one I saw down under...
I was tracking some Aussie Modules stuck in a fairly large convoluted lot at that time too, but I knew I was not going to be in the running for them.
Although (IMO) they went rather cheap.

I am glad you decided to pass on that copy of Ravenscrag too.
Since this one is NM all around, there will be one less hound tracking the ravens next time and hopefully it will be closer to home for you. 8)

hehe... I'll hunt for me own now, I guess.  ;)  I am a bit surprised that it is NM, because I thought I remember the Aussie one being VG... and that is part of why I didn't jump on it.  Oh well... next time.  :)

Check out Badmike's JG sale. He at least has a Dungeoneer compendium of issues #1-6 on sale for a goof price and perhaps some of the other items on your list as well (Traveller items I think).

Jason is onto something there.

However, I do know that Mikes DCs are not first prints though they are in the SW.

And not that I had been looking really hard for them, I do not recall ever seeing one in fact.... anywhere.



Much of Mikes Horde of Judges Guild Products rests in later printings.

Though there may be a few early prints and some items only had one print.



So some of that list might be filled with Mike.



I do know he has some Catalogs to sell, some being quite difficult to find.

I think he may have at least one printing of the GenCon.

Campaign Hexagon System, and I am fairly certain he can add a Scrapfaggot Green Module for you and I think perhaps two seperate printings, one of those in SW.

After looking over your list once again I recall moving boxes with a quite a few other items that appear on your list.



PM him your list, let him fill what he can for you and I promise you will be pleased with the results.





Kat: Yes, your memory is spot on; the seller stated the following in the description:

"No marks, stains or underlining. Very good condition. Never used."




** expired eBay auction **




Modesty in a seller is a good thing but this one is NM all around.

I am very happy that I was lucky enough to win this copy.

Ah... yeah, I was wary of that one a bit because of that.  :)  Oh well.  I hope I get lucky with a nice copy too.  :D

I didnt much feel like paying for shipping from Australia otherwise I probably would have bid on that one as well.  Ravenscrag and House on Hangmans Hill are two I seem to always fall short on.  I did however manage to get a few JG items off my checklist recently.




** expired eBay auction **




1st print Wilderlands Hex Sheets

2nd print Campaign Hexagon System

2nd print Starships & Spacecraft



Plus it came with some other great stuff including a 1st printing of GDW's Mayday.  :D
