Anyone have a clue as to the auction value of Dungeon Mag. #1 (excellent/near mint)?

Have not seen one on ebay in forever.

I am thinking of dumping to finance other stuff. Got rid of my other Dungeons year ago, but kept #1. Probably should have held on to all of them 2-15 or so. :?


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

One of them have recently been sold, but it was in France (so was sold, i think, at a higher price), mint and signed:

Bill, several of these have been sold over the last few months. Currently, you should expect to get around $150 for your copy of #1 Dragon, if in collectable condition.

Thanks Sage. Will watch to see what happens.

Ralf... 8O ...that was Dungeon #1 - not Dragon. Thanks, anyway. I think Dragon #1 has been hovering around that number for  years.

Well, yeah. That would be pricy Dungeon!!! Seriously. I haven't seen one of these on eBay, too.

It seams to me that # 2 - 5 are more rare than #1, Everybody I know has a #1 but #3 and #5 are more elusive.  I have seen # 1 go for about the $20 - $35 range depending on condition.  I remember when Dungeon #1 came out, many of my gamer friends were buying multiple copies of it.  Nobody I know bought multiples of #2 and up :roll:

That is generally the case with most series items. Though the print run on these items were the same, but eventually #1 will star on top.

My understanding is that we had distribution problems with #4 in the UK and hence this is difficult to get hold of over here.  Which is why I bought mine from the USA.  :wink:

Thanks for waiting, and, thanks for the bid Grodog and others. It made me feel much better having those from the forum look into my auction.

Unfortunately, I ended this auction this morning because of an outside source giving me an offer I couldn't refuse yesterday: $44.00! I was beginning to feel that this may not climb over $25.00  :(

I have seen the same problem with many of the dungeon magazines as well - #3 through #5 are hard to come by, Blackmoor. I think the ring of truth here is that the maiden voyage of most items, (ie issue #1's), are the chance for the best interviews anbd insights! These will be the crown of the magazine's run. :wink:

BTW: I always bought multiple copies as well...I do have an another extra Dungeon #1, #3 and #4(I think, lemme check) - if anyone would like to trade sometime... :?:

Thanks again all,
Rick

Hirward's Task and Trouble at Grogs number among my favorite adventures written in the latter stages of 1e.  If you have copies of those issues, Rick, I'd be happy to trade.

I used to own Dungeon 1-20, but sold all of them when I quit playing D&D upon the release of 2e (and, more importantly in my case, when I discovered Ars Magica!).   In fact, Paul bought many of my oldest Dragons, SRs, my OCE set and supplements, etc., back in 1995 or so, as did Jason Zavoda ;)

I just picked up #1-6, and considering I have 1-3 already, my extras will have to go too.
There are a lot of cases where issues #2+ of a certain magazine are scarcer, simply because people will buy a first issue, decide they don't like/want it, and not buy subsequent issues. Besides, first issues are heavily marketed prior to release.
