Used by a real live DM!

TSR DUNGEONS AD&D HOBBY D&D GYGAX BOOK DUNGEON MASTERS Item number: 3189358055

Of note in this otherwise un-noteworthy 1st Edition Dungeon Master’s Guide offering on eBay:

YOU ARE BIDDING ON A BOOK WHICH WAS USED BY A DUNGEON MASTER!

As if that adds to the value. Does it come with a certificate of authenticity stating that an actual dungeon master used the book? What’s better about a genuine real McCoy DMG, anyway?

Really, it probably just adds a few sweat stains, an unidentifiable odor, and some Doritos crumbs on the page with the combat tables.

Still, when I noticed that the next item up for bid was a Wizard’s Handbook offered by the same seller, I had to check it out. Alas, this one wasn’t used by a Wizard.

Incidentally, over 300 items per day are listed on eBay that meet the search term “ad&d”.
