Hey guys,

A friend has asked me to posit this question about his true 1st MM he has.  See the attached pictures for the major blemishes.

But the real surprise is this: the book has the original MM errata sheet included with it (see photo).

Does that have any impact on possible resale price?  He's a gamer, not a collector, so he's more than happy with his "play copies" and would prefer the money to a "rarity".

Thanks as always.

To the right buyer, it may be feasible to sell just the errata sheet and keep the MM as a spare play copy.
Difficult to say, since I can't recall anyone selling that (uncommon) sheet by itself but the difference in "valuation" with/without the MM /might/ not be all that much.

I tend to agree.  With that much damage, I'm not sure how much the MM would garner.  But the errata sheet alone would probably be of some interest.


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based such as CoC, Runequest, Pendragon and all their related games
