Hi all,



I listed a 3rd+ woodgrain OD&D boxed set today along with supplements that are either 1st or 2nd printing.  All are in fairly good shape.  Please don't hesitate to send me a note here or through ebay if you require additional pictures or more information.



eBay listings mdoZ



Thank you for looking.



Andy

Just a heads up...



Looking at your ebay sale, I noticed you have a 4th Printing Men and Magic book for sale with the set. Could you see if the other books are 3rd or 4th printing as well please?

Thanks for the Q.  The books are fourth printing.  I read under the 3rd+ printing description this:

This print is a hybrid print, with a wood-colored box matched with Fourth print booklets.  Obviously, TSR tossed the first Fourth-print booklets into leftover/overprint Third print boxes, and called it a day.  Two sets matching this description have so far been spotted, leading us to believe that it was more than a unique occurrence


This seems to exactly match the contents of the box.

I believe the 4th print set I just sold on ebay did have that label, but will check again.

Just checked, and indeed it does.  I have another 4th print set, in much nicer condition than the one I just sold, and it also has the sticker.

Indeed, this Men & Magic does have the sticker on the last page below the product listing.

I did not mentioned the specific characteristics of a 3rd+ printing and maybe that was an oversight.  I provided the link and hoped that people would use The Acaeum to understand what was being sold.

Thanks for the questions.  I always appreciate all attempts to clarify what I am selling.

I wish I had the money, but I just had a $1k expenditure to fix a busted car, so I'm way out of the potential loop on this one. Damn. Always so close and never able. :)

Good luck!
