There is currently an auction for these, where the seller is asking about $ 1,000 for the set !

Previously, the same seller (I believe) had them up for $ 1,500 !!!

I think I won the set I have in a Roxanne Toser auction in the late 90's - not sure. It was not seen often for sale even then so I must've gone for it when I had the chance. I don't remember what I paid but it was likely less than $50. I don't ever remember seeing singles for sale so it appears sets were given out in some very limited way at that convention (maybe as one of the tournament prizes?).

I'm surprised a set went for $225 so it's rarer than I would have guessed. There are people still playing D&D so I assume it was a collectible for them then and now. Add promo collectors and a mix of RPG/gaming card collectors and you have more demand than supply.

The B.Dalton book stores exclusive pack of 2 cards is also hard to find, in my experience.

If someone can help me post a scan of it, I can provide the image of my pack

Looks good ! Yes, that B.Dalton pack is tough

I see that you guys also included the hard to find Craftsman promo pack in your scan, as well. Very nice. Thanks again

One of these sealed 2-card packs sold last month for just over $20 and another sold for somewhere less than $100. Another pack sold last year but I don't have the final selling price for that. Two are on sale now. I hadn't seen one for sale in years and now a bunch of them have appeared in the past year.

A near-complete set of 10 sold for $159.99 on Feb 12 and another 10 card near-set went for $153.60 in an auction that ended Jan 10 with 6 bids.

A complete set sold for $220 sometime in the spring last year.

Has anyone seen this pack before? This is apparently a promo pack for AD&D given out at the Toy Fair in New York in 1992. It measures 2 5/8 x 3 5/8 inches. I've seen some offered online but no one ever says what's inside.

Pretty sure just common base cards are in it, not promos.

Hey Todd,

Since posting my question, I opened a pack. It had four cards inside and they have the silver borders within the black background on the front which is what the cards in the factory set look like. I don't have factory set cards to compare them with but this appears to be a case where the pack is promotional but the cards are not. I'll send you a pack and you can decide if you want to open it. The sticker that seals the pack (a fold-open envelope) does not have much adhesive left after all these years so it came off rather easily.

I have seen single packs offered for more than $100 so everyone should be aware of what I've seen so far.

I'd love to get one. I open everything. No matter if the cards inside are common, as the wrapper is certainly promotional and a nice item to have.
