If a copy of the original wood-grained boxed set of Dungeons and Dragons 1st edition with a bonus first edition copy of Chain-Mail with fantasy supplement were for sale, what would it fetch? Apparently only 1000 were ever printed.

I sold a 3rd printing chain mail last spring for $300 USD, So
my guess is $10,000 USD++++

It is whatever someone, at the time, will pay you for it.

Nerds have a lot of disposable cash.

I must not be a nerd, then.

A 3rd edition Chainmail Bill???

Last I saw those were about 100.

But then the last time I looked a 1et print woody was 'only' running about 5K.

I believe a very nice "woody" sold on eBay over the last six months for at least $10 USDk.

Well, some folks don't mind paying for a woody.

Cyrus the Great21 Jul 2017 3:57 p.m. PST

I have one, but I like my "woody".

I have a wood box. Purchased it in Gary's basement with Dave in attendance also and I am so stupid I did not have either or both sign the books.

OOOooooh. I could be sitting on a modest investment then. Just have to find a wealthy buyer.
