Well the Jim (James) Ward Dungeoneers are out there somewhere as I've found out he sold them at a GenCon Auction.

Indeed. Tried to Google for any information but could not find any..oh well.

Waiting on scans still from Adrian, but Mr Jaquays has confirmed 3 and 4 do have 2nd printings (which he has). Course I rediscovered an auction with a 4th 2nd print, so only thing debatable is the 3rd print 1st which Mr Jaquays doesn't think is right.

Interesting...anyway I've sent a message to Mr Jaquays to see what he has to say.

Oh and Adrian's are not mailed versions.

((Edit: Well Mr Jaquays says that is authentic - as its his handwriting - but he doesn't recall reprinting #1 twice. Anyhow it'll stay up as the 3rd print, and I'll just have to add the 1st prints pic))

I must say that I was impressed with the prices achieved for those two rare JG auctions run by Vermillionfire:



A complete set of Character Chronicle cards - Subweb Link JG36



went for US$183.38



http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... &rd=1&rd=1



And the first print set of Dungeon Tac Cards - Subweb Link JG2



went for US$90.00




** expired/removed eBay auction **




Were people surprised by the prices?

I was not surprised.  Once I saw that Lofenloc had made place holder bids, I expected heavy bids in the last few seconds.  I suspect he uses sniping software.  I once use it myself but gave up on it.  I prefer to watch the closing minutes and place my maximum bid.  I hate bidding wars that nickel and dime the price for days at a time.  Had I not won other auctions earlier in the day, I would have bid $200 for the Chronicle Cards.  I bid high for the Tac Cards, because my own set is 5 cards short and has some cards with damage.  I will likely sell that set now to get a few dollars back.  The rares are hard to come by.  They don't come up often.  You have to be willing to pull the trigger.  I have not seen Chronicle Cards come up in a couple of years.

Congrats on the win. I thought the price for the Dungeon Tac cards was quite reasonable. I must admit to being surprised though at the price of the character chronicle cards - but if they are as rare as you say - then $183 is probably a good price.

I often wonder with some of the early JG items that had limited print runs just how many are left in existence, especially unused.

herm: well both items are prb among the rarest JG items tbh.



chronicle cards come along v.rarely and are extremely hard to come by. i and a few others would no doubt stick a few $ in to get these. the TAC cards are always a draw. there were 3 sets too in 1 lot, which is rarer than the norm as you NEVER get that sold. thats a first as far as i am aware and i have been watching quite some time.



the prices dont surprise me at all, though the chronicle cards are prb slightly on the high side, due to lance wanting them, and i think imo, the TAC cards are a fair bit on the low side.



either way, good auctions and a nice sale in both instances by william.

Are we nearly there yet?

one set with writing not three = double current list for second print?
