My Library List -- July 2007 Edition

Postby Dennis Cayton on Sun Jul 01, 2007 3:38 pm

Hello Checker Friends,

In order to save you the time from all the downward scrolling it would take to figure out what I have and have not sold from my last library list, I thought I would go ahead and post a fresh new library list, one which contains what I still have available for sale, as of today, July 01, 2007.

I am not trying to waste bandwidth. Instead, I just want to save some time for those of you who might be interested in buying something that is still for sale on my list.

Here goes:

MY CHECKER LIBRARY LIST

MAGAZINE COLLECTIONS

The Keystone Checker Review
A complete and unbound set of James E. Reed's KCR, beginning with the January 1990 issue and ending with the November 1995 issue, for a total of 36 issues in all. Each issue ranges from like new to excellent to good condition. For an example of an issue I consider to be in merely "good condition", there is a little catsup smudge on the front of the July 1993 cover. I regard this publication to be an exceptionally instructional series for beginner and master alike. I had several articles published in this magazine. For this reason, I feel like it's a part of me.

$50 plus postage and shipping costs.

A.C.F. Inter-District Mail Play-Off Booklets (1973 - 1979): Although these booklets began in 1965, my collection commences with the 1973 booklet. As a former mail player from this bygone era, I used to refer to these almost every day. As a result, many of the pages became ragged, tattered, and dog-eared with extensive use. In most of these booklets, pages have had to be restapled countless times.

In other words, some of them are in pretty bad shape.

To my knowledge, with the exception of a couple of missing front covers (1976 and 1977), all of the pages are intact. Some of these booklets are also obvious reprints. In view of the above, I am selling all of my booklets prior to the 1990 booklet for $1 each. Howerver, the excellent play contained within these booklets speaks for itself.

1973: Winner: Dan Vestal. Very good condition. $1.

1974: Winner: Marvin Rex. Very good condition. $1.

1975: Winner: John Caldwell. Fair condition. A sloppy reprint but all the pages are there. $1.

1976: Winner: Jack Zvorak. Poor condition. The front page is missing. The pages have had to be restapled. $1.

1977: Winner: ???? Poor condition. The front page is missing, and I can't see the box scores. Raggedy dog-eared pages have needed extensive restapling. Hopefully there's at least a dollar's worth of play in its 51 pages. $1.

1978: Winner: Jerry Childers. Fair to good condition. The pages have gone through some restapling. $1.

1979: Winner: Marvin Rex. Fair condition. The pages have gone through some restapling. $1.

All of the above (1973 - 1979): $5
