Sometimes you get lucky. I’m on this facebook group of Belgian and Dutch people who sell fantasy and sci-fi stuff. Someone posts a number of pictures, a Lord of the Rings game, Planescape Planes of Chaos box, TSR rack, … Wait, what? A TSR rack? A quick message later I have a phonenumber.
Lucky me: So did you have a store or something?
Seller: Nope, I used to work at Wizards of the Coast.
Lucky me: I see, do you perhaps have more of this stuff?
Seller: Sure, what are you looking for?
Oh boy, that’s music to a collector’s ear. So I headed over to Brussels where this guy was cleaning out his garage. What I found, and bought, you can see below. Most of it is still in shrink. And at very reasonable prices. A guy owning a gamestore was there last week, loaded up 5 boxes of RPG’s. Damn, I would have loved to have seen all those goodies.
