Hi folks,

I'm hoping to run an auction to raise some money to help out Jolly Blackburn and his wife.  Most of what I have is pretty straightforward, but I came up with two sets of AD&D rub-down picture transfers (sets 1500-2 and 1500-3).  They're still in the original packaging and in excellent condition (no idea how to rate rub-down transfers, but I'd say NM if not M.)

The problem is, I have no idea what they're worth.

Any idea what these go for nowadays, if anything?

Sorry buddy, you will have to find something else to help them with.

Probably only worth a buck per package... if complete and still sealed.
I have about 26 of those sets... all of them are still sealed and I never paid over $2 per set and that was for some uncommon sets that I was chasing.
The rest were all purchased at a buck or less and about half of them were from one seller and I got those at 25 cents each.
That was the starting bid and I was the only bidder.

Yeah, I was afraid of that.  Esoterica are weird that way...some things get silly-expensive over time, and others just sort of sit there.

Well, I have some other stuff that should sell reasonably well.  Thanks for the information!

You could probably list them for $5 or $10 and see what happens.  They have sold for $10-$20 in the past but as mentioned if you wait long enough they can be found for cheaper.

please pardon the naive question, but why do Jolly Blackburn and his wife need help?

What's going on with Jolly and the missus?
I missed something somewhere (obviously).

Crap. CrapCrapCrapCrapCrapCrappity Crap.

I feel like a heel for not knowing this was going on.
It's a tragedy when a parent loses a child.

Can you post a link to your listings page?
I would like to bid on some things to help you... help the family.

Considering the situation, this is a very good idea.  I'm sure there are more than a few of us who would be willing to pad our bids to help a worthy cause such as this.   A parent burying their child is not in the natural order.  It is an abhorrent defiling of nature.  I only hope those whose loved one has been lost can find peace.

Sorry for not getting the information concerning Jolly's daughter up sooner.  I'm going to try to post my stuff within the next day.  In the meantime, there's already an auction underway at http://www.kenzerco.com/forums/showthre ... 1760--I'll probably be posting my items there.

Does anyone know if the "[email protected]" PayPal address is a legitimate address for donations?  That's a PayPal address listed in the BGG thread.  I don't hang out at BGG, so I don't know who the guy at the other end is.
