I'd guess about $10 or so if you have a nice picture.

Could you scan the front page of this?

Tome of Treasures has scans of the March and June 1981 Retail Order Blanks posted in this thread, but not for November 1981.

It's actually Nov 1980 (rather than 81) :roll:

Here are the scans (front and back). Feel free to crosspost it back to the tome!

Thanks for the scans! How many pages are there total? Is it just a single sheet with a front and back? The ones on Tome of Treasures have 24 or 32 pages, IIRC.

Hmm - your right. Just a single sheet printed front and back. Wierd. Does anyone else have any of these old order forms sitting around? I wonder when they went from single sheets to a beefier format.

This was just sitting in one of my old boxed sets, where I must have stashed it to keep it from getting crumpled (I dont throw away much - obviously).

I doubt if anyone is really actively collecting these, or even passingly interested, but these are the kind of random discoveries that jazz me up for some reason  :oops:

What "treasures" have other folks discovered in hidden amongst your collections?

Other than The Black Vial, I haven't found anything noteworthy, but I have a zillion boxed sets to go through. The wife has become quite proficient at inventorying; she is breastfeeding, and the kid spends 90% of his day on the boob, so she has plenty of time to do it. She had me laughing my ass of Sunday when she had an opened boxed set resting on the baby while he boobed.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Some people do collect old TSR catalogs, etc :)  Although a single page one that doesn't list the RPG stuff probably isn't going to bring in very much.  It does make me wonder if it is really only 1 sheet of a larger bundle.  I would have to dig out my catalogs to see how they compare but they are a bit buried at the moment.

Genes + environment...this kid should turn out to be a champion collector.

Yes, I was wondering that, too (if it came out of a larger set of Retail Blanks). But it does have a page 1 on the front, and seems to be complete in itself. Perhaps it was printed up when the World of Greyhawk mini line debuted? I know there was a minifig flier included with some of the WoG folios from that time period - how similar is the flier (which I don't have) to this sheet?

It might have a little value to someone who collects those figures, since it has the info on which countries in Greyhawk the various figures are assigned to. However, the same info is also found in the much longer June 1981 Retail Blanks, which I typed up here at one point before I sold them (to Mars!).

So, guessing - the November 1980 short form comes from debut of minis for sale, and then the info is incorporated into later forms such as June 1981.

Resurected!

A few fantasy miniatures rule sets:

Knights and Magick: (Heritage - "1st ed revised" according to summary sheet, errata dated Nov 1, 1980).
Chaos Wars - "Rules according to Ral": (Ral Partha 99-001).
Fantasy Warriors: (Grenadier)
Fantasy Warriors Companion
Grenadier Bulletin #4

I'm not seeing anything current on e-bay. Low value?

Several sets of different GW miniatures games to sort through next!

Knights & Magick - is this the boxed set (5 volumes, I think)?
Chaos Wars - maybe $5 to $15 depending upon condition.
Fantasy Warriors - again, is this the boxed set or just a loose rulebook?
FW Companion - $5 to $15 depending upon condition.
Grenadier Bulletin #4 - $5 to $10.

Hope that helps!

Thanks THG!

Yes - both the K&M and FW are the boxed sets. The boxes themselves are pretty flimsy, but are actually still in quite good condition.

OK, if the box is in good condition, then I would guess  anwhere from $15 to $35 for Fantasy Warriors.

A few games near the top with some valuation guesses:

City State WarFare (JG 1120): unpunched but box has some scuffs and light corner wear. $40ish?

Battle Masters (MB): $10-15?

Man O War (GW 0141): ?
Sea of Blood expamsion (GW): ?

Divine Right (TSR 1008) - well played this one. I think this is second edition, but not really sure how to distinguish them.

Lots more of this kind of stuff - but not sure anyone still has the endurance after 6 pages and months later...

Keep going?

Quit now? Are you mad? Keep it coming!

Divine Right - I'll let the folks more versed in DR lore chime in, but in general it is quite collectable.

Man O War & Sea of Blood - I can't give any specific numbers, but I think you can expect to do fairly well ($50+?) with these - OOP GW games typically do quite well (Mordheim, BattleFleet Gothic, etc), and Man O War seems to be highly regarded among the bunch. You might be able to get some better info (and potential buyers) if you join the Man O War Yahoo! group and ask the members for advice:

http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/the ... aws/files/

The other games and your estimates seem reasonable.

What else ya got in those boxes?
