D&D 40th Anniversary Blog Hop #21: First time selling

First time you sold some of your D&D books — for whatever reason

The first time I sold any gaming books was when I was an undergrad at UCSB — not to buy food, beer, weed, textbooks, or other school supplies, but other gaming stuff.  My copies of the 2e core books (“2.5”-era) and 2nd edition Forgotten Realms box were gathering dust on a shelf, so I ended up taking them to Metro Comics in downtown Santa Barbara, which at the time (~1997-98) had quite a selection of used RPG materials.  I can’t recall exactly what I traded for, since I was a pretty regular customer there — given my interests at the time, it would most likely have been stuff for 1e, Gamma World, or Call of Cthulhu (which I really dug, but sadly my group wasn’t interested in playing…)
