The online stores only carry the most recent printings.  I've emailed most online stores to double check (especially the stores that list earlier printings for sale), and they all verified that they only carry the latest printings.
It should be fairly easy to find recent printings of most of the early DCCs, but you won't find first printings of 1-5.
#10 is also impossible to find, but I'm sure GG will reprint that soon enough.  :)

If anyone here is a 'print nut' and really wants first printings of 1-5, I have an extra copy of each I'd sell.  Just PM me.  8)

I know nothing about DCC modules, how can you tell if its a first printing or not?  Do the modules state the printing number?

I've just thrown this up on the Interesting Items (Non TSR) thread but thought I'd mention it here as well:



For those looking for Goodman Games Dungeon Crawl Classic #0 (Legends are Made, not Born) Convention Print:




** expired eBay auction **




I've purchased one from the seller previously (so not after a second one), and found the transaction to be hassle-free.

Looks like the collectibility of some of the non-convention modules is starting to pick up as well:




** expired eBay auction **




I know this one is a bit harder to find but I would never have expected it to go for that much.



Or it could just be that the guy that won this auction wanted it really, really bad.  I checked and the seller also won the other DCC auctions that the seller had up.

Strange... if you check Goodman Games Website, you will notice that some of DCC now unavaible will be soon reprinted.

I am not sure that the different printings are collectable. Maybe the first ones with another front cover and of course the convention modules, but that's all.



DCC#42 is schedulded for january.

Next year Goodman will reach #80

I would say the collectibility of the "common" DCC modules is extremely suspect...they seem to be willing to reprint anything that isn't a limited edition item, multiple times as a matter of fact.

Well they are in the business of making money, if  product sold out it makes sense to print more to sell.

Agreed. DCC collectors, I think you need to be cautious ... caveat emptor, and all that.

Hey, nothing wrong with that...helps me out when I miss picking up a particular item.  But just a warning someone shouldn't be spending $30 on a "common" entry when it may just be reprinted a few months later (and typically with even more content than the original).  I do like the Goodman Games practice of changing the covers, though....

So far they have no plans on doing a reprint for 3.5, 17.5, 20.5

Listen to you guys!  In the mid-70s, would you have passed up buying a 1st print woody because you heard they were doing a second print?  Obviously this is a diferent situation, but only one of degree, IMHO.  There are enough of us 'print freeks' who collect every printing of each DCC that there will be a collector's market on them, even if they don't get new covers/content in a newer printing.  8)

Man, I have enough trouble trying to collect just one of each DCC title - I can't imagine trying to collect one of each print of each title.

At the moment they're bringing out titles faster than I can buy them - out of the 36, I have about 20 I think.

Regards

Mike

Personally, I think that little 'd20' symbol means 'don't buy me'. I'll spend my money on other things.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Gus, I'm so stupid, I passed up ALL the supermodules (A1-4, T1-4, B1-9, GDQ1-7, S1-4) when they came out, cause I had the originals, so why buy the compilations????

I think a lot of us did that and paid the price for it later.

I was guilty of that. And I actually collected modules back then. I wasn't a print junkie (their really wasn't a way to know back then, anyway). I looked at the compilations modules and couldn't find a compelling reason to buy them. Then there was the fact that TSR was really starting to mass produce stuff and it was getting almost impossible to just buy the new stuff.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Here's an odd DCC item:




** expired eBay auction **




Maybe it's a fake, or maybe it's genuine.  Anybody else run across another DCC module with a similar problem?
