I had not seen these before. I was wondering if they had any value?

I'd have to dig out my Zocchi catalogs to check the address and to see if these sets are mentioned.

Not sure I want to buy packaged dice other than the Dragon Dice but I did not recall having seen these before.

I like to buy lots of Gamescience dice, but they don't fetch to much ( I was outbid on all my bids ). wouldn't pay more than &12-15 sealed and a buck a piece loose...

I'm flattered.  But I'm noe expert on dice.  I just like those early low-impact polys.

Although  I do remember the Zocchi's turning a few heads back in their day.  And I did have a brief flirtation with those hard nosed polys in the early 80s.

Well I looked through my 48-page Zocchi catalog..not specific to that auction, but I think they maybe the Precious Gem dice (Ruby color) and uninked. Sold for $1.50 originally.

I love the GameScience and the "soft" plastic dice included with the various TSR D&D Sets.  Still like to use them too!  I think Noble Knight still sells those Zocchi/GameScience Jumbo Polys in the $6 - $8 range.
