Now how many watched this lot:

Hey, thanks!   :)  :)

   I just kept plugging away at that lot until I happened to hit one.   :lol:

    Don't worry, Clarkie.  Load up and fire at the next one.   8)

    I did not expect to win, but once in a while things have to go the way of the little dogs.  We run off with a bone now and then.    :lol:  :lol:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8723709228

Wanted the Catalog (which has helped a lot), but I now have also found out that there are 2 printings for #560 Portal of Irontooth (Different product lists, 2nd print has a slightly darker tint on front though could be fading on the first or bad color processing at the printer. Yet back color covers are the same and copyrights the same)

Thought one was a Zocchi at first, but they have no mention, and both have the rough 'roller' marks along one of the back edges. Course this now changes my view of nothing past 410 having another printing..oh well suppose to the collector or at least to me it was a great find.

Hmmm, now that auction looks familiar. :wink:

Well I got it..happy with the results, though haven't looked over everything completely.
What I do know from the Dungeoneers (expect update this weekend) is Dungeoneer 1 is a 2nd print (site has 3rd shown), Dungeoneer 2 is a 2nd print (site has 1st shown, though now can confirm 2 printings for this), Dungeoneers 3-5 are 1st printings (site has 2nd/2nd/1st shown).

GDG-H is a 7th print, Eldritch an 8th print (both printings I didn't have), and Spelljammer boxset looks complete.

To those who PM/emailed me: I shall try and get scans of everything plus more detailed descriptions of condition this weekend (If you want scans sent to a specific email address pm that to me by this weekend).

Heh... what's with Cool Judges Guild acquisitions, Shane?

Still neat, though, and printing confirmations as expected, even if you'd already finished buying for that night ;)

What I got:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8751828373
Village Book 2 (true 2nd print, so bumps the other two down to 3rd/4th prints)

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8751778132
Journal I (the 1st print - same size sheet of paper but no page numbers listed)
City Map 4 sections (the 1st print - not Hammermill Bond paper - is thicker, no (c) 1976, the 'Burial Grounds/Gold Blosum Pool' map states Playing Aid for use with Dungeons & Dragons (c) TSR Lake Geneva, Wisc.) (Also yellow is not highlighter as nothing soaked through/is colored on the swamp areas and also is perfect match with yellow swamp area on reduced player map- see below)
White I Booklet (the 1st print - no copyright date, white cover, rest of material looks the same as 2nd print orange booklet I)
City Players map (1st print, not sure if there is more then one at this time - the $150 auction have this listed right? 4 sheets 8.5" x 11" as described blanked out, map reduced on each sheet, yellow swamp perfect match with larger map, no copyright date, sheets are numbered I-9, I-10, I-11, I-12 - so know we know that mystery)
I-6/I-7/I-8 (2nd print, 1st print, 1st print)
I Dungeon Maps I-1 to I-5 (the 1st print, lighter paper, but no copyright date)
Guide to the City State (1st print, no different Booty List, but then we sort of figured the CSIO stuff out prior)

Nothing was Xeroxed, and only the white booklet I was 2 hole punched though didn't obscure any text.
Quite pleased with the lot, though now I do have to wonder if the white booklet I didn't come with the very first few initial subscriptions.

Thanks for the run-down, Shane. Always good to have more questions, isn't it?

I thought those maps might've been interesting. :D
(Not the first time I've seen those "yellow highlights", either).

Not the first mass-subscription, as previously indicated on the timeline anyhow. That was almost certainly the yellow "I" from Mike/IO's evidence compared with the other dates we have available.
How/whether anything was collated piecemeal before then (the gap between 50(?) and ~1,000(?) people is quite a jump) is another matter... and, unfortunately, there's nothing to suggest how/when these items were put together (replacement(?) I-6 and later guidebook without J, for a start?).

Oh, nice of Titan not to mention the two-hole punching, huh? :?

Yeah it helps aknowing all this now, though yep..does raise that initial question.

Interested in knowing where else you may have seen the highlights (On the whole paper thing..I've been asking Hammermill about its process/paper..but now I will have to ask have they always used the watermark or when did they start to.)

Yeah..seems the maps/sheets go together, save for the I-6 (I really don't want to open up that issue again since I truely believe the paper was consistant early on..and more so now with the I-maps in the lot, etc). Guidebook must have been thrown in the lot, and suppose the white I could have been to if Mark was trying to make up the whole Booty List or initial subscription from the Journal...course no Tac Cards either.
Curious on the #9 Judges map now..will have to dig out my CSIO to see if I got one..don't recall a list stating its 4 sections like #4..only that it was 17x22.

faro wrote:Oh, nice of Titan not to mention the two-hole punching, huh? :?


Yeah..seen in pic its hidden...still gave him a feedback of great seller though because he didn't take a BIN and did screw up his own listing by claiming Xeroxed sheets when they were not. Am curious though if the other Journal I (BIN auction) is numbered or not..

Side note: Just a friendly reminder for the ol scans of the mailer/and suspect texture of red tegel you can send me :wink:

Oh and Al..sorry mate but I can't send you the journal I (for the obvious reason), but if you still need a Dungeoneer 7 I have one for you for free (Just PM address and I'll pop it in the mail at some point). Would have never kept up with the auctions if it wasn't for our discussions.

Previous auction. Not one I won, IIRC.

Would be easier to presume it was a mix-and-match.
He certainly didn't have a clue about the white "I", however, which was a surprise since he must've handled plenty of those in yellow.
Unless that was presumed to be a photocopy, too! ;)

I get confused with all these maps... :?

And in what way was that "good"?
Had it not been for my snipe bid, the end price would've been well below my BIN offer that was on the table for the 2-3 days the first bid took to arrive.

That would be Brian to ask, no?
Must admit that particular snippet surprised me, since it appeared "normal" enough.

I scanned the mailers days ago... oops... :oops:
