1st Edition Collectors? 
25th-Aug-2005 11:21 am
Does anyone know of a community devoted to collecting 1st edition D&D/AD&D material? Is anyone else interested in this besides me?

I'm not actively collecting it, but I have a collection- my girlfriend bought me like eleven first ed. books as a gift. They're pretty sweet.

I'd rather play a better game than collect material of nostalgia.

Nothing wrong with doing both. ^_~

Fair enough.

Bit of a drain on the ol' wallet, though.

I do both, actually.

i just got most if not all 1974-5 d&d books from my ex-neigbors son when they moved hes 30 ish....and my brother 21 has all the Ad&d books and i bought all the 3.0 and 3.5 books so together we haev a pretty complete collection... i really like looking into the old books to see their spell lists and also the books written by gary gygax have amazingly complex rules on handling ANYTHING such as different mental disorders, complex eonomic situations etc. we also have alot of the old adventures and it makes me so happy to know that most d&d games arent half as lame as they used to be!

anyway yeah i was on ebay and the deities and demigods book from 2nd ed. (the one with those two priests on it summoning things on a purple backgound) sold for like 160.... some sets are going for 800 $ (i almost wrote gp hahah) which means someday if i ever sell the stuff it would be worth thousands... but im not going to

p.s. theres a d&d museum in upstate newyork and
but the link is old or something.... damnit

On the contrary, I think D&D has gotten less creative than it used to be. Look at how many adventures were written for 3.0. Six? (not including the ones for Eberron and non-WotC publishers) There were probably 100 or more written for AD&D. Of course, now there's a sourcebook for everything...
