The prices on these can vary a fair bit.

I'm sure I bought a few sets of these from you, years ago.  I ended up reselling some of them - the last lot was this one:

http://www.petrick.ca/tsr/shrink/TSRbadges.jpg

Which I sold for around $40 as a lot last year.  The buyer of this lot (also a member here) resold a number of the items from the lot individually and I think may a tidy profit as well.  Ultimately, I think selling from the US is better than selling from Canada which is better than selling from the UK :)

Most of the items would vary from $5-$25.  The better selling ones are the patches (TSR more so than Al-Qadim) and the RPGA pin over the others.  The button being near the bottom.  I don't recall the GenCon keychain tag so that might do the best since there are a number of the others out there already.

I'm not sure if I'm the buyer Mars is referencing but I did pick up some of these from him.  But I still have mine.  :)  Once it comes into my coveting hands, I have a hard time parting ways.   :wink:

I enjoy collecting some of the more unusual items such as these.  I think Mars is right with his pricing estimate.

That being said, if you do decide to part ways with them, I'd be interested.  :D

Hi, I'd also be interested in bidding for the lot. I'm in Spain so also lower shipping costs for me :)

Any idea when these were produced?

It wasn't while *I* was running RPGA...
It's the 2nd logo tho (adopted after I left), so it may have been in the Eastland or Petticord or Rabe periods...

I had the enameled pin with the blue and green logo; that was during Jean Rabe's tenure, if I recall correctly.
