Hello everyone. I "found" my TSR stuff recently in the attic, and since I haven't played in 20 years, I thought I'd try to find someone to appraise everything, and then sell it to anyone who might be interested. Any input as to the value of my collection pieces (and how/where to sell them) would be greatly appreciated.

Most of everything I have was kept in a larger Xerox box and stored in the attic. So, the corners of books are intact, the pages weren't creased or written on, and overall condition is great or excellent.

If you want/need any photos to verify condition, I can email them to you. If you need more info on an item, please ask and I'll do my best to elaborate.

It's all stuff that's worth a few dollars. Nothing of notable value there.
If B4 is the version without the three hole punching, and is in good condition, it might go for more than $10. They are harder to find, and more desirable.

This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Also, if Blizzard Pass Msolo1 is not filled in and has the invisible ink pen (highly doubtful), then it would be worth a bit more as well.

The hardcovers might bring anywhere from $7-12 depending on condition. The PHB and DMG sell well. The MM if excellent or better can hit as high as $15-20 on a really good day.

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

Agree with those above.

Although at one time (just a few years ago) the Manual of the Planes got great prices on E-Bay.
Now?.... not so much...

I am looking for a mint/near mint copy of the DMs Adventure Log.
I have a couple of copies that are basically (At best) in Barely good to poor condition.
Heck, one of them is all but done in.
I actually use them.....

AD&D Dungeon Masters Adventure Log (9036) - new, never used
(c) 1980

I would offer $5 plus shipping....for that item...

I would also purchase your B4, whether hole punched or not.
$7 if Hole Punched and in at least good condition with no damage, and no writing inside.
$12 if no holes and NM or better condition.
Please PM me if that strikes you as a fair price for those two items.

If the B4 is Shrink Wrapped with no holes, then you should definately sell it on E-Bay as it could get rediculous prices.
Same thing for M1, if Shrink Wrapped with the pen inside, sell it on E-Bay.

Almost anything in original Shrink Wrap tends to make some collectors drool copious amounts of fluid onto the computer keyboard and they will bid with frenzy.
