Ah then - will have to get myself signed on to this new fangled Ebay gizmo.

Photos of Fantasy Warriors 9204 for TollHouseGolem. Usual disclaimer about my bad photography skills.

Image

Image

And the signed DL poster from the first dramatic reading (GenCon 1984):

Image

I have 2 copies of this. I got the second for a friend who couldnt attend - but he had no interest when I brought it back. This is my most unique copy. In addition to the signatures of the participants, my younger sister's signature was added one weekend when my parents were out of town and she had her highschool friends over for vodka and sloe gin.  :x

I gaurentee no other copy in the world has this unique signature!

My other copy is in better shape, and doesnt have this added feature :!:

Signatures I can make out:
Janet Pack (Tasslehoff / Goldmoon)
Gary Pack (Tanis)
Harold Johnson (Sturm)
Laura Hickman (Bupu)
Douglas Niles (not attributed - read as Flint)
Tracy Hickman
Margaret Weis

The last sig is hard to make out. I think it could be Terry Phillips, who I think read as Raistlin. Here is the sig above Margaret and to the left of Tracy. It could be "Terry <cr> Raistlin". Anyone have a Terry Phillips signature to compare? Other ideas?

Image

Anyone have an older set of DL specific signatures?

This is another item which will be hard to value. Any hardcore DL collectors here?

Shall I continue with the next TSR box, or would folks rather wander into the JG , Roleaids, Harn stuff?

Updated list of items I still need help on [edited 9/12/11 to add values]:
Signed DL poster - 1984 dramatic reading
Dragontales Anthology (1980 Dragon Publishing): 5$
Citadel Journel (spring 1987): $5-20
Ares #1 unpunched ($20)
Ares #3 punched ($5-10?)
Secrets of the Sages (summer 1988 - the only issue I think)
The Dungeon retail order blank (Nov 1980): worthless?
Dragons of Winter Night handbill (GenCon 18 - photo on thread page 2)

If folks arent fatigued of this thread yet, I will try to get more up this weekend.

Thanks - With all the help I'm getting, I think I will have to buy a round of beers next year at Indy for these amazing Acaeum forum members!

I vote the non-TSR stuff, but go for whatever order works for you.

Dragontales - not much, $5ish
Citadel Journal - variable, $5-20, but I'd think the lower end
Secrets Of The Sages - quite a bit, but I don't know a fair estimate


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

See now I can help you with these:
Inferno ($30-50) Can depend on the printing.
Wondrous Weapons ($10-15)
Tarantis (color and b&w books) ($25-30 but this seems to be going up in value)
Wraith Overlord ($30-40)
Caverns of Thracia ($30-45) Can depend on the printing.
Verbosh ($10) Printing doesn't usually matter with this one.
Treasure Vaults of Lindoran ($10-15) Printing doesn't usually matter with this one.
Portals of Torsh ($5-10) Printing doesn't usually matter with this one.
First Fantasy Campaign ($45-90) Can depend on the printing plus completeness.
Dark Tower ($40-55) Can depend on the printing.

Lots of good stuff in there for sure.  On the Ebay vs GenCon discussion, you can find the sale prices of items from the previous years of GenCon (not sure if this year's are posted yet).  Its always fun to browse through and in general, most items sell for considerably less than on Ebay.  You should take into account the fee structures for both places though.

It might be worth your while to figure out the prices and try and sell items on the forums (here, dragonsfoot, rpg.net, etc) to avoid the fees altogether.

For some of the rares such as the open tourneys and signed D&DG, it really is tough to gauge what the final selling price will be.  If a couple of bidders get into it, they could end up much higher - they have very good potential.  Wasn't it a month or so ago that a trashed DMG (with grey duct tape onn the spine) signed by Gygax sold for $160?  A 1st print D&DG has a solid price to begin with (and is an early book), etc...

The auction report for Gen Con 2011 has been posted here:

http://www.livegameauctions.com/index.p ... &Itemid=13

As a general matter, I agree with others that prices are usually lower at Gen Con.  But not always.  If it's something that stratochamp, Blackmoor or I would be interested in, you're likely to get the same price or even higher.  Assuming we're in the room at the time it comes up, of course.   :roll:

Unpunched Ares mags (any number) sell for $20 plus consistently. Anything less is a bargain for the buyer.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

There was this one with duct tape and Gygax and Sutherland's autographs which was sold by re4321 for approx $55 (US) / 35 GBP

Thanks for the replies everyone!

I opened up ebay and paypal accounts his weekend, and even bid on a few things to get my feet under me. No winning bids - but thats just fine as I start to make sense of everything.

NTRPG con sounds like a blast, even if autographs be hanged! Life permitting, I might just pencil it in.

I have gone back and updated the original messages with the values from the last box. Roughly $1000 out of that lot - bringing the total so far up to around $3000. Still a couple boxes to go as well.

Here is an updated list of "open items":

Signed DL poster - 1984 dramatic reading
Ares #3 punched ($5-10?)
Secrets of the Sages (summer 1988 - the only issue I think)
"The Dungeon" retail order blank (Nov 1980): worthless?
Dragons of Winter Night handbill (GenCon 18 - photo on thread page 2)
Shadowrun 7101 (1989), screen, unpunched counters, Silver Angel, and 1989 and 1990 update flyers.
The Iron Wind (1980)  
Judge Dread Collection (IPC 1985)

A remarkably small list consdiering how much has been posted!

This weekend I also found the printed prebublication manuscript for Helm of Selnor. It is a workinng copy with a couple edits scribbled in, and it is likley the only one in existance.

So what would a lot composed of the following be approximately valued at? :
- Tresures of Grayhawk (signed authors copy - one of many authors to be sure though).
- 4 pages of handwritten mansuscript (including my hand drawing of the helm in the margin).
- The complete prepublication working copy.

Guesses?

I will try to get started on the next box this week, but I have some travel coming up so no promises...

RE: The Iron Wind (ICE 1980)

Found a first printing Iron Wind (b&w printing on parchment cover) at Noble Knight for $60.

Auction Estimate $30-$50 NM sound about right?

I think these were first printed b&w on parchment, then a few months later had covers removed from the remaining inventory and rebound with a reddish colored cover.

$30-50 for a 1st Iron Wind sounds about right (assuming it is in good shape). I have one too from way back when, so I tend to watch them on eBay to see how they fare.

Thanks for the pic of the Grenadier bolt thrower :)

Would these be in the ballpark?

Early DragonLance autographs: $50
Helm of Selnor manuscripts and signed Treasures of Greyhawk: $75-150

Take a vote - too high or too low!

Thanks
Chuck
