Hi guys, I know I come with the tough ones to set value, but I still believe this is the best place to try to get some guidance.

Do you know of any of these 3 items that could have been auctioned in the past?

D&D basic rulebook, ACJ2 and ACJ6

Any approx. market value?

Items similar to these have auctioned off in the $75 - $125 range depending on condition.  I picked up a few at NTX in shrink for those prices :)

From my very limited experience:

Most Japanese items, unshrinked, go in the $50 range (more for modules, less for painting guides); modules can be up to $75-$100

Anything SW should go in the $75-$125 range, as Blackmoor says;

The item on the top right in your pic, a copy went for $50 at the NTRPG con midnight auction, in used condition.  In addition, I sold another two in the ACJ series privately for $50 apiece.

Here are prices for Japanese items from the last two NTRPG Con auctions (thanks to Curt Gould for most of these):

B8---$74 (shrinked)
M1---$65 (shrinked)
X8---$75 (shrinked)
X2---$120 (shrinked)
AC4---$80 (unshrinked)

French:
B3---$85 (shrinked)
B4---$75 (unshrinked)

First I've seen this. Not a module but some kind of card game with slightly oversized cards (still sealed so I haven't looked at them yet).

I was just looking at the photos on your classifieds post and then came back to look at these. It's interesting that the Japanese versions are not printed in reverse (compared to Western books) unlike the manga from that period. I have one of the D&D Japanese manga from back then and it's not printed in Western format.

Is the interior art the same as the Western version? The manga art is obviously radically different than any of the US art at that time.
