Any idea what a 8002 Large Hex Sheet by TSR is worth?  In the big lot of stuff recently acquire, this is included.

No idea, but it seems the site could use a scan of it and some info according to this page:

http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/miscpages/dm.html

"We know little about the Hex Sheets, other than that they came in two flavors (large hex and small hex), were assigned two different TSR Stock Numbers (8002 and 8003 respectively), and that they both consist of large (22.5" x 28.5") sheets of hex paper.  More information, and scans, needed.  (Thanks to Kent Kelly for what information we do have).  These TSR-produced Hex Sheets should not be confused with the Hex Sheets released by Games Workshop."
and
"Hex Sheets are even rarer; we've never seen one sold."

I only have an 8003 listing that sold in the middle of last year from Juliabulia, but no other historical data.

Should hopefully match with viewtopic.php?p=75910#75910 for 8002

Have seen one or two cut up since (including that 8003, misterspock?) but not sure there have been (m)any complete sheets sold since the last few in 2006; $98.64 & $7.30 x2
Unsure what data was used for the current price provided, including the recent increase, given that.

Yes, that one from last year mentioned it was split up and partially used. Unfortunately I didn't save the individual close-up photos, but I can either post or email you the pdf of the listing if you think it might help.

Here's the text of the listing

The copy I have is not complete and partially used. I'm 99%+ sure it's authentic. Along the bottom left side it reads
"TSR HOBBIES  8003   7/32-3/8". One side has the 7/32" hexes and the other 3/8". It measures 35" x 22.5". It
appears it came folded once lengthwise, then three times along the width creating 8 sections approx. 11.25" x 8.75".
One of these "sections" on the 7/32" side has a dungeon map drawn in pen. In addition the item has been fairly neatly
"torn" along the length fold to create two 35" x 11.25" pieces...also one of the 11.25"x 8.75" "sections" has been
neatly torn away making the item only 7/8 complete. Item shows some wear...mostly at edges and folds, some
scuffing, a bit of smudging. Be sure to ask any questions you might have and I will be happy to answer them.

Thanks for the copy & confirmation: wasn't 100% sure as the external HDD on which I have the eBay files for that timeframe is currently awaiting a new housing or SATA cables after the power supply board failed. :)

How many of those hex sheets were even sold or remain in one piece is never going to be easy to say since it's not the sort of item that people even expect to be selling on eBay. I'd half expected a huge stack to turn up some day from old US hobby shop stock, but they never have.

I bought that one.  I think I have another sheet or two as well, will have to dig a bit to confirm if there's interest?

Thanks... a pain to photo, eh?
Presuming that counts to 4439 (and would fully expect to do so), seems to be a full match for the previous description on viewtopic.php?p=75910#75910 and checking again just now IRL.

I will take some more pictures when we get a good sunny day - they should turn out sharper.  Each "vertical" line counts from XX01 to XX39 and has columns from 0101 to 4401 so bottom right is 4439.

Yep, they do match the description from the other thread - 16mm hex one side 22mm hex the other; TSR HOBBIES one side, wizard logo + TSR GAMES and 8002 on the other.

As aside to this, I don't suppose anyone's yet managed to successfully ID the large hex sheets sold by TSR way back in The Strategic Review? At a guess they're unmarked but still on the "to confirm" list if possible, having done so for the small hex pad (ex Tim Kask).
Unfortunately not the sort of item that would pick up a give-away price sticker, I suspect...
