Hrmm... at first sight, I'd've said a desperate CoC completist!

But not so.



High bidder is a familiar name, who has been working their way through those; e.g.

(Do these 'zines never come up for sale in "sets"?).

Had no idea they were worth anything. I have Challenge #'s: 31, 42, 48 & 52  and The Travellers Digest: Adventure 7 (small LBB size book); and magazine size TTD#'s 11-18 and #20.



Not sure now if I will sell them in a lot or individually.

Sell them as a lot.  I just did an ebay search for Challenge, and most of them go for no more than $6.



This seems like a guy who just "had to have" this copy of this magazine, and didn't care about price.

CoC completist can be crazy, just as bad as D&D completists :)


There are no bad editions of D&D, just Boring Players and Unimaginative DMs.

*nods to that*



Yeah, but the D&Ders don't have a SAN stat to indicate quite how crazy.

Would be useful to know, sometimes... :P

But correct me if I'm wrong, it takes two to tango. In other words there have to be two people bidding high in order for the price to get way up there on any auction. Unless they were bidding against themselves.

Started playing D&D at Great Lakes in '76-'77. Went to Dungeon in Lake Geneva. Got to adventure in original Blackmoor. Saved some rare pieces from then, not in best shape: Palace of Vampire Queen, Beastmaker Mountain. Started collecting recently.
