I have one of the first 300 of the above that were numbered and signed by the Troll Lords. These have any value as a collectors item?
Thanks,
John

Surprisingly they don't seem to sell for much.  I have seen two of them sell for around $25 (one I bought for $26) and 2 others in the $45 -$50 range.

The unsigned versions are still available.

Yes, I know. These stared out as collectors editions limited to 300 available only thru Troll Lord Games. However, Once they were released everyone that played C & C seemed to want one. With demand like that you can't blame the Trolls Lord for producing more. I was thinking $40 to $50 dollars was a good price But it seems the price is all over the place.

Not all the Trolls signed them -- there is only one copy that bears my signature, for example. ;)

Also, some people got Gary to sign -- this was an addition, and not how they originally came.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Well I wrote in mine "1st copy sold" so someday that will be worth more too :)

As I recall, I sold signed copy 78 for around $70 back in October I think.


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

Is that a nod toward the "1st PH ever sold" (By Stormber IIRC)?


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

You bet.  I guess they are numbered though so my plan is foiled.  I have #55.

never mind - keep hold of it for 30 years and who knows - it might even be worth $90  :D

Yep... around $70 (£40, I think) was about right.  It is a lovely set and a real shame that the only difference between that and the later sets is the signatures.

I wrote on my unsigned unnumbered box set "First Unsigned Box Set Sold".
Though I doubt its true....
Still.....  30 years from now, who would know?
