Hey all, first time posting...
I recently found a big box of old D&D stuff, plus some non TSR things in a storage unit I bought. I'm not a collector, however going through this stuff brought back good memories of my DM'ing days in the early nineties. Of course these items were before my time, but cool to look through. I have no clue if any of these things are rare or even worth collecting, so if you guys don't mind I'll list everything here, and maybe you guys could let me know what you think ? all the items have price tags on them from used book stores etc, though I don't know how old the pricing is. So, I'll post the item, then the price so you guys can evaluate whether the price that is on them is low,high or ridiculous...

Well, that about does it. Also in the box were some mint Star Trek Giant Poster Books X14, and like 5 signed comic books. As for all the D&D stuff, the condition ranges from ok to nearly mint... Everything is in plastic with cardboard backing. No missing pages etc

Anyway, I was glad to find a forum to post my find on... The price tag amounts ad up to about a grand... but I'm sure some are over priced and some are under priced. Either way I was glad to go through it all and be reminded of good times.
Thanks for any feedback !

Storage Wars Texas?  :D

Nice find, though nothing that strikes me as overly valuable. Others can speak to value far better than I, but I'd say as a large lot the value would be a few hundred dollars at most. You will get more selling individually but some items will never sell or sell for only a few dollars and of course take time to sell. The hard covers depending on the editions on the early ones typically only sell for a few dollars a piece.

Some of the TSR books that you list are parts of boxed sets (Concordance of Arcane Space, A Grand Tour of the Realms, etc.) and are essentially worthless without at least the rest of the books of that set.

Hardbacks = $5 - $10 apiece

The Gazetteers, if complete = $20 apiece.

Group One books = $20 apiece.

Judges Guild magazines, modules = $1 apiece.

I bunch of your Gazetteers do seem really high priced.  If complete (with poster map) then most are in the $25 range.

A bunch of the books are only pieces of boxed sets:

* D&D Gazateer Book Two: 'Player's Guide to Thyatis' 1989  29.99
* D&D 'Wrath of the Immortals' Book 1: Codex of the Immortals 1992 29.99
* D&D Players Guide to Immortals 1986 X2 24.99 each
* D&D Master DM's Book 1985 19.99

These seem way overpriced.  Maybe $5 each.  Generally for boxed sets, if you are only missing the box itself the value is about half.  When you get into missing the box and some of the contents, then each individual item is almost worthless.

Your Judges Guild stuff looks like really common stuff and your prices seem high.

The Group One items have some good collectible value - some are cheaper than others.  I think $25 is reasonable for some of the more common ones to find but these can sometimes hit the $100 for rarer ones.  You would have to do a bit of research to find out which ones are which.

Condition is paramount, and the items should be complete (maps, etc). You're value there is probably only a few hundred dollars at most. I'd be interested in buying the hardbacks and maybe a few other items, if you want to meet up, and I would volunteer to look through the other items to tell you if they are complete or missing maps or just partial items (like some of the Gazeteer items which are just components from boxed sets).  PM or email me if you want to meet ([email protected]), I'm over in Euless.

Also, you should check the number of pages in your Deities and Demigods book.  If 144 then your price might be low.

Thanks for the feedback everyone... Guess I didn't hit the jackpot on the D&D stuff then.  :|  But, one of the comics I found was worth about 180.00 , so that was cool. It's a Darkest Night #1 with a black and white sketch variant cover...
Oh, and the Deities and demigods has 128 pages...
Thanks again

I bid on a few of these auctions and now seem to think the seller should be placed in the shady sellers thread.  I believe he is shilling his auctions.



Check out the new bidder on these auctions:

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **





The new account that is listed as "2***1".  This shill bidder has bid only on the one seller's items and has bid not only on Group One stuff but also his digital voice recorder and pipe.



Time to report it to Ebay.

I agree.  It looks very fishy.

I reported all of those listings.

Let's see what happens.....
