    A Little Gold Book of Ghastly Stuff by Gaimon increased a ton. One of the few books I ever sold. I don't remember the specifics but I was shocked by the value in that little book.

    I bought my Fine/Fine/slipcased CD Gift Edition of IT from a member of TDT.org back in 2013. I don't recall how much I paid, but I remember it was a nice deal he gave me...$100 seems to stick in mind, but honestly not sure if that is correct. Might've been $150, but I know it wasn't anymore than that, and I do think it was closer to the former figure...as I recall, anyhow. I've had a number of book increase substantially in value since my time of purchase, but percentage-wise, this edition of IT has to be near the top.

    Yep! My copy did come with a slipcase. Although the slipcase did have a giant barcode sticker on it that couldn’t cleanly remove but I did get a replacement directly from CD.

    And it may be blasphemous, but seeing what Misery goes for is always tempting to me . . . (I still really wish I kept the extra signature sheet in my copy and not have Paul "fix it" - imagine how much more that could have been worth?)



    Oh - and I love this guy's review of CD's IT - this was a bargain compared to what's been coming out:

    (Maybe he's complaining about the asking price in 2013 . . .)
    Did the copy you get from Amazon have the slipcase? I think this was the book that copies sent to a distributer, intended for libraries made it onto Amazon.

    2011 I think you mean but still a helluva deal over the issue price of $125.00. I almost purchased one for that amount but thought it was too high at the time lol.

    I'm not an old timer really but injuries and arthritis have really kicked my butt.

    How'd you hurt your back? Uhm, brushing my teeth.

    (True story - I through my back out a few years ago. How you ask? Well, I was sitting on the couch with my then girlfriend watching X-Files (she was too young for it when it aired originally,) and I got up to feed the dog. BAM. Back OUT! Somehow I managed to even go to work the next day (train to and from Seattle, and walking downtown,) but the next day was a trip to urgent care that ended with a shot in the butt.)

    CD's auctions go for considerably more than market value. You probably wouldn't have trouble getting $700 for it though.

    Can we start a thread for us to discuss, at least the old timers, our daily ailments?

    For instance- the weather here as drastically changed overnight- and my bad knee is singing the blues. That coupled with my thrown out back are making this a tough day.

    I could definitely be talked into parting with my copy for that price in a heartbeat. I don't think I love it that much. But then again, I might be all talk - this is literally the book that got me into the small press collecting. I got my copy from Amazon somehow even!

    I did overstate things a bit. The hips do not hurt. That is because I bought new ones.
