I have a copy of Boot Hill, given to David Sutherland III by Brian Blume.

It looks like a First Edition, First printing and is signed to Dave by Brian.

See below.  It also has a loose 8.5 x 11 page with building layouts inside.

Any thoughts on its value?  I am considering selling it.

Very cool item, The Boot Hill 1st usually goes for $100 - $130 in nice condition!  I imagine this would go for a substantial premium over that!!

I found another loose insert - this one has the weapons chart, first shot chart, to hit chart, exact hit location chart and brawling chart.

Furthermore, it has what appears to be a very late addition - a Bravery table, apparently printed, cut small and taped in place in the blank area below the First Shot Chart.

That sheet is supposed to be included with all 1st print Boot Hills.
I suspect many of the loose sheets have been lost and possibly some books went out without that sheet.

I have never seen a Boot Hill Book sell for more than $80 to be honest.
And most of those did not include the loose building layout sheet.
I have two NM copies (purchased in the $70-$75 range) with the loose sheets.

This one should get a lot more though.

Well, I sure hope so!  We are gearing up to purchase a used minivan and $1000 is a lot to us, but our '91 Aerostar is on its last legs.  Anything will help.

I also have some miniatures... the Ogre Magi, two versions.  He sculpted them (IMHO, he was a far better cartographer and sculptor than an illustrator) but they were never produced for sale.  He had fifty of each produced by a buddy, and kept them.  Some were sold in a Poulsbo hobby shop back in 1997, I got one of the pewter masters as well as one or two of the lead versions.

I have no idea what these would go for.

You didn't read the links :)

The above is the diorama created by Blackmoor's wife Saxonangel for mdr003.

Here's the link - you liked it 2 years ago too :)
