#RPGaDAY Day 22, Best Secondhand RPG Purchase
In one of my many moves during college and grad school I lost a milk crate's worth of my 1st Edition books. I lost most of my modules, some Dungeon magazines, my Basic and Expert Sets and all my 1st Ed Hardbacks except my Deities and Demigods. I still had all my 2nd ed stuff, Ravenloft and some of my modules.
At first I was not too bummed out. I had 2nd ed and I was kind of getting out of D&D.
A few years later I saw some near mint 1st ed books on eBay. My wife saw them and told me to get them. Must have been something in the water because no one bidded on them.
I got a PHB, MM, DMG, and a FF all for about 60 bucks. At the time I called it a steal and I still do!
