Hello;
A few years ago (I think it was 2003) I got a copy of this adventure autographed by Arneson by preordering from Goodman.  I read it once or twice and then put it away and forgot about it.  I understand that some collectors really want this thing and might, for the right price or for a decent trade, be convinced to sell or swap it.
What's it worth?
In addition, I have done some artwork for some of the DCC series as well as some other RPG products.  I might be considering trying to sell some of the originals in the future; is there any interest?  I don't know how to price them.
I also have a copy of Rappan Athuk Reloaded.
Any info appreciated
thanks

hi stefan
- What's it worth?
typical $200-250 in very fine no obvious plus for sig. last few had bidders not on d&d forums so ebay might be better than private??

- I might be considering trying to sell some of the originals in the future; is there any interest?
including emerald cobra centrefold??
thanks for contribs to hobby. interest might be reasonable if not huge. goodman collectors with everything else might like these so private could be better than lowball ebay snipes. list + photos of works good idea here dragonsfoot + goodman site for start??
good luck :) :)

Hello;
I had no idea it might be worth that much.  It's in near pristine condition (there is a little spine wear due more to the quality of the paper than any handlind on my part; I really only read it once).
I do still have the original drawing I made for Emerald Cobra; I assume you mean the big drawing of Yuan Ti fighting adventurers where a human magic user is getting polymorphed into a snake?  I think I also have another pencil version of the same illustration that is different; I sent Goodman a few sketches beforehand to show him how I was interpreting the scene and as I recall he asked for some changes... so I still have the original.
Thanks for your info
regards Stefan

Funny, I am posting back and forth over on DF with some one else about the DCC 3.5(unless you are the same person :), but here is some points of reference, I just posted on the other site:



Its by far the most collectable of the DCCs.  Here is an auction link to the most recent one that I know of just for reference:




** expired eBay auction **




Deogolf from here also put his up for sale back in February and IIRC it didn't meet his reserve, but it ended somewhere in the same territory.  Here is the link here discussing that one:

Hope that helps. :)

Yep.  I am the same person.  Probably ought to use just one 'handle' and a consistent avatar to avoid these problems.
