Here is a question for you all.  What kind of value would you put on JG Journal, the newspaper style?

Newspaper rather than newsprint?

Not a lot, I'm afraid :?



Picked mine up for about $1 each in VF/NM condition (if that ain't a contradiction in terms for non-acidfree paper!).



Market might've improved a bit since then for the scarcer ones, though.

I am speaking of one like this one:



Journal O



Any difference? :)



I must say it makes things so much easier on JG noobs like me know that Shane has the site up. :)

Yep, those ones.



What d'ya think; 3-6 times rarer than your Rs/RPGAs and a buck or two a pop? :P

Yeah, helps to be able to *point* at a listing or compare items with actual stock on-hand.



Wasn't so easy with Steve Dimmick's JG Codex, complete with "Tripod hosting" backdrop.

(Would've liked to have seen that credited, too, even though it froze a long time back and was definitely less accurate).

Yep.  I "found" one for just under $20 before shipping.  I was thinking about buying it, but I wanted to check out if it was worth it first.  I am glad I did........

Or one at Titan for just a few dollars before shipping: works out pretty much the same? :)



Yes, phps best to keep looking. They don't come up all that often (owing to the print run and ephemeral nature of the media), but should still be possible to snag the newspaper editions for $2-5 each, I'd hope.

They may be rarer, but the demand is nowhere near the same.



I remember Gen Con some years ago, when it was still run by TSR, the magazine section of the auction store had a pile of these, all nicely preserved in some sort of large platic baggy, while the earlier one and four-sheets were bagged and boarded. I was excited, because I'd been looking for them for years, but they were all in the $20 to $30 range! Eep! That was much even for me, who'd been looking for them for more than 15 years... :(

bri. i am still hunting about for some of the older ones, to put with my 1st print instalments, but i just cant justify paying more than $10 for one. after all its just a bloody piece of newspaper :)



i saw the titan one a loooooong time ago, and just point blank refused to buy it. that was the one (and it is 1 sheet of paper) that they were gonna charge me $23 to ship, on TOP of $19.99 for the item.



you see them crop up from time to time. noble knights have got some, but the conditions are not so great, hence i didnt bother buying them.

Are we nearly there yet?

I would put the value of the newspaper editions at $10 to $15.  I know that they are only newsprint, but they seem to be pretty rare as far as I can tell.

Crazy Egor had a LOT of these at Gen Con this year.  I picked up pretty much a full run at around $3 - $5 each, iirc.

Sounds about the right price, that :)



Must have been disappointed when Al didn't turn up to buy up the rest!

IIRC was later reduced to $9.99 for #0, Al...

Gone now, anyhow.

yeah i know - it didnt go un-noticed. i just simply will not buy it from them. how can they justify $13 shipping? it should be at least half that. that is just ludicrous for 1 feckin sheet of paper  :evil:



nah i would rather wait and pick it up from someone more sensible about these things. i am in no rush.

dunno what it is, but something is nagging away at me with regards to these I-6 & I-8's we were discussing last night.



does anyone have a #14 with all yellow sheets? or one with I-6 (or is it I-8 - i am in work so i cant check to hand) without the minus AC values in the pack?



my thoughts are this. i do think that the #14 i have is still the 1st print. it feels right with the timing and all.



the original releases of #5 #6 and #7. this could have been where the yellow sheets originated from. are there any yellow sheets with the minus AC values?



the loose I-6 and I-8's i have, i bought off terry like that many moons back. if he was selling them like that, they were loose, which would tell me that they were not as part of a pack, but individual, which would still point back to the releases of #5 #6 and #7



terry literally took these from the boxes that they were stored in, when he bought them from that massive stock. if they were stored that way, then they must have been sold that way too?



it might have been that they did an original run of prints without the AC values and sent them out to subscribers. there were loads of complaints and then they re-printed a load on yellow or tan cardstock and released them in the newer format? sounds possible to me....



anyway. work beckons...yeah its sunday....man this sucks.



mind you at least i dont waste four hours digging for books and notes :)

Okay first Al..you have a 1st #14 (as stated in journal snips) the whole package was released late (so 1977)

Checking #14s Vol 1 booklets..interesting things there..I-8 in all three of those printings has the negative ACs (since I-8 is really the only change in printings besides color for the whole I-6/8 discussion). Though our Checklist (David's and mine) matches what is in those Vol I books too.



As for Tac cards I have 1st 1976 (complete as in all different cards, but numbers are off in some places), 2nd 1977 (only the three cards shown..came in a lot together so I am skeptical of the one card being mixed with the other two), and 70+ cards from another lot ( Men Attacking chart though is like others I have)..

Those with a 3rd have a Men attacking chart with negative ACs?
