I have one of 30 TSR chess set that were made in 1984. How much is it worth?

If only 30 were made, it'll be worth a pretty penny.  However, condition is very important.  Is any damage visible?  Do you mind posting a picture?  Or two? :)  

Also, tell us if it's been around cigarette smoke, and whether it's complete.  8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Malc bought that one, and though I don't recall the price, it also happened to have been Brian Blume's.

In which case you already have one answer to your original question. :)

$700.

Take as you will, but within the range of those two realisations more recently vs. $500-550 for a couple a few years back.

IIRC, I sold mine for $1500.  It was autographed by Gygax the "pawn pusher," which may have bumped the price upward.

Or downward, depending on one's pronunciation of "pawn".

are you concerned about the pawns getting cancer from second-hand smoke?

Some pics would be nice. How many do you have, and what are they?
