I have some old D&D store signs from the 1980's unused including the one with the script from dragon#1 that says "Dungeons & Dragons Headquaters" if my memory serves me correct.  Is there any value on items like this?

Yes.  Can be several hundred dollars.  A pic would be good but generally these things are almost one of kind so price varies depending on the RPG collectors economic landscape.

I used to be the manager and then owner of Jenkintown Hobby Center outside of Philadelphia Pa.  I will look for the signs and get pictures on Sunday if possible.

The aformentioned smarmy and Bill would only have interest so they could refer ME to items in question. Such good guys, both  :D

Would love to see pictures.

I'll look but I have no interest in buying. That sort of ephemera is not my bag of holding. Unless you had a bag of holding, that is.

If you want some advice about value, I'll check with Doug (skterewhisk). He probably knows what he paid for the store signs he bought a couple years ago.  Mind you, those belonged to Gary Gygax and had provenance.  But he could probably give you at least a ballpark figure; I'll wait until you post pictures and see if they match up to anything he purchased.

A skterewhisk is the proper utensil for preparing a dish of fricasseed scketrewhisps. Thus "to skterewhisk" as a verb could be used to indicate making contact with someone of said trademarked username, & as such is a perfectly comulent word. Or so it is said by the enlightened heads on the forbidden plateau of Leng.

Oops. Can't indicate "pleasing to Crom" without spelling it right!

I suppose we could, but "Timetravaler" appears to be sufficiently misspelled as is.
