Near complete for Tegel Manor Printings and CSIO Printings.
All pictures show Earliest printings at bottom going up to latest printings at top.
Still looking for the 2nd Print and 8th Print of the Revised CSIO.
I was bidding on an 8th Print last week (an amandadub listing)  but I wussed out at the end.

No wonder I can't pick up a CSIO these days. =)

That revised went for too much anyhow.

A thing of beauty, John.

Is the 8th print revised the blue cover of CSIO?

Some of these 'complete' photos border on the pornographic, in the emotions they elicit...  :twisted:

Good job, Gnat.

Hector.

Fantastic photos!

Nicely done Gnat, thanks for posting those :)

Thanks everyone.
Was hoping we could see other complete or near complete sets or prints of Judges Guild items.

You'd not want to see mine :) Course I do have a camera now that can take panoramic pictures.

My JG collection fills seven file boxes.  I would be shooting pictures for days.

Not only is your collection impressive for completeness, but the conditions look very good as well.

My JG P. Jaquays set is complete (DT and CoT) as they are the only ones I wanted! :lol:

As for my CSIO, TM collections... :(
I have a well worn/highlighted Tarantis, does that give me any kudos?
:wink:

Great stuff, John

We all want to see you use that new camera and yeah panoramic would be fine if that is what it takes. 8)

Yeah, as you can imagine, that collection of items did not happen overnight.
It took me a few years of wading through the garbage bins of e-Bay to get to the level the two pictures above show.
A former re-seller (Terry) who lives close to where I live, Al (killjoy32) and Mike B. (Badmike) were a huge help with getting a nice start for collecting Judges Guild product.
I got a lot of items from other Acaeum members here too.

As of today, I have more than ten file boxes of Judges Guild products.
Five are limited to only Judges Guild Books, Modules, City State sets and other directly playable items.
The City State (CSIO and CSWE) sets and JG Tan Maps fill up two file boxes alone.
Another box has just the Wilderlands Sets and spare parts from incomplete Wilderlands sets (including a lot of maps).
One box is dedicated to things like Tac Cards, Character Cards, Envelopes (Installments and others), Judges Shields, Box Sets, paper journals, extra parts and the older Newspaper type journals.
Several other boxes have SWed Value Packs, JG Dungeoneers, Journals and Pegasus magazines and one box is stuffed with SCI-FI and other non-fantasy Judges Guild product lines that I do not even collect on purpose.

As a long term collector I buy what I can when I can at first, especially for items I am new to collecting.
Then I upgrade what I can when I can and sell the older items that the newly acquired nicer copies replace from my collection.
That said, I will be selling lesser copies of all sorts of Judges Guild items very soon.
Most of them are collectable level, just not minty.

FWIW: One of the Tegel's with the cover sheet has water damage on every item.
No mildew/mold, but I paid a lot for the listing and the seller said nothing about water damage in the listing.
The seller refused to refund my payment so I kept them.
EDIT: I am giving the water damaged Tegel Manor set away for free (winner pays shipping costs).

And for those who might not know.
I am ALWAYS up for trading....

Hey John,

Late to the party here. :)
Just wanted to say really nice pictures and thanks for sharing!

My JG collection right now wouldn't even fill one box... :P

At least I do have a complete early Tegel Manor, and a partial CSIO from Geraud. :)

Best regards,
Ronald

For those with small collections of Judges Guild (or other RPGs).
Nothing to be bashful about, as it is how all RPG collectors get started.

I was pretty lucky early on as I had a great job at the time; which allowed me to have a lot of expendable cash.
Also; if not for the three guys I listed above, my collection would certainly not be as large as it is now.
