As gamers I think there is a little bit of a collector in us all as well.
After all we all came into this hobby at different points so different things were "rare" or "must have" to us at different times.
Well I finally picked up one of those items I have been searching for for a while.
The AD&D 1st Ed Monster Cards.
I know these have been on eBay many times. BUT these were still in their shrink wrap.
Yes I opened them. I am still much more of a gamer than a collector.
Each one of these is a little work of art, it would be a shame to not enjoy them.
This collection was always one of my "Holy Grail" items. Not because of it's significance to the game or even my own games, but because of the rarity.
I would pass by these little decks in the bookstores back in the 80s and think to myself "oh I'll get those next time." then there wasn't a "next time" (lessoned learned there kiddies).
For the longest time I never could find these. Plus I wanted to get a complete set of all four and I wanted to make sure they were in good shape.
Well these came along and I couldn't say no. Not after all this time.
What is your "must have" item? What have you been searching for to complete your collection?
