Keep digging and you will have them paid off in no time.


I think I'm about dug out... and I owe about $16K. I went to a very expensive college to get it.

But, I have pounds and pounds of old unpainted lead fantasy figures...

I sure don't want to use them as sinkers when I'm bass fishing...

Do your students know your past, Mr. Kask?

My students are so young that most of them have only the vaguest idea of what D&D was/is. Except a couple of PS types that didn't know that it wasn't always a console game... I mean, they weren't born before '88.
Someone mentioned that they collect Judges Guild? I just unearthed a "Initial Issue  -  October 1976 still in the plastic bag
                                   &
Tegel Manor still in the mailing envelope...
Plus I am still sorting out City Campaign maps from Thunderhold, etc. etc. etc.

Me, Me, What. One? Both?

Who remembers the Dragonbone? I have one of each model and the lights still light...


BTW I will sign or provide provenance for any of this stuff.

Ya I think Ebay is the way to go.  I think there are a few people who want a Dragonbone too :)  I still need Tegal Manor too.

Sorry, I plan to put all or most of this up this weekend. Better set your snipers...

After I post the photos to you guys, I'll entertain Silent Auction Offers; if somebody makes me an offer I can't refuse, who knows?

Don't worry, I'm not trying to jerk you around. I think my rep says that I don't play that game...

Then within hours I will put up what goes up.

I have an OLD ILLUMINATI game in the hard plastic box still shrinkwrapped. I can't even find a reference to this edition online. I'm looking to sell; any help?

PS I do appreciate all of the feedback...

Sheesh, I go away for a few days and miss all the excitement.  :lol:

Tim, you should consider offering to autograph any items you put on eBay;  it will help with the final values.  I wouldn't do it ahead of time, though, as some collectors don't seem to like autographs.  Some prefer some sort of "note of authenticity" instead.  Oh, and welcome aboard!

One or two of the old hardback's have my name in them already; you know, like ownership?

Sorry, I missed that bit.  :lol:  Those books will probably do quite well, if they're your personal copies.  I'd suggest you wait until after Saturday to auction anything, though.  :wink:
