I must have started coming to this site just after you opened it and seemed as if it had been around for ever.  I thought how could I have missed this place.  I am happy to be contributor.  Kuddos and thanks for all you have done.

Small update with some more prices.  Also the early CSIO Judges and Players maps that I have with yellow swamp have been removed due to a conversation with Bill Owen (and him with Bob Bledsaw at the time).

Bill had mentioned he didn't recall any map coloring the swamps yellow and when he visited Bob and mentioned about them Bob didn't remember anything about making them either. Thinking they may have been a one - of - kind item that an individual had done to them.  So I went back and found the notes on that auction, seller thought the maps were highlighted and finally I seem to recall reading about the maps being able to be marked on without bleed through (which of course its good paper). So I took the pictures off.

Rather glad to see those go, Shane; thanks.

I've had a browse through the list and there are a few where I'd perhaps still query the stated rarities (by no more than one notch in any case, I think, save for the lumped printings on #5-7) given the actual print runs, sales figures and frequency seen. Good to see the orange "I" booklet nudged up to "2", however.

Will stay well clear of the stated prices save to observe that the button and t-shirt figures seem strangely skewed by the auction realisations and extrapolations from purported conditions which probably mean relatively little for those non-standard items. There's no way a button will fetch $210+ or t-shirt $260+ given the actual auction values maxxing at $150-ish and having already smoked out most of the high-fliers for the former; unless "perceptions" are hyped by that apparent rebaselining.

Well I stand by my Valuation board members grading and input.

Personally I doubt to ever see a NM item of those.
