eBay Finds 5/26/20--includes Place Your Bets!
« on: May 26, 2020, 05:23:54 AM »
Tickets to TNNG with Jim Lange.  Tape dates given are 1/26 and 1/27/1984.  Perhaps the only tape dates?
Nice lot of six photos from The Cross-Wits with Jack Clark for only $5.99.
A set of wine glasses and napkins sent as a promo item for "Sex Wars".  Just over $13.
A rather unique poster for TTD' 90.  Pretty cool looking, and if it was less than $35, I would have bought it for myself.
A nice looking copy of Dealer's Choice (Place Your Bets!) for $25.00.  Description says unused and photos seems to reflect that.
This multi-pack of Gametek Jeopardy! games isn't anything special, but interestingly the reverse side of the box notes the answers were taken from the show.

This would make sense. It was only on for a week as a Valentine's thing (from 2/13 to 2/17 if I recall) so they probably just knocked out the set of 5 shows over those two days.

For those who are wondering why the official name of the board game is called "Place Your Bets", Parker Brothers had already put out a game called Dealers Choice just a few years before.

I've got my second copy of the Parker Brothers Dealer's Choice. We had fun with it as a kid (even though I'm pretty sure we didn't play by the official rules) and the "Blue Book" value descriptions are wonderfully snarky. I don't think I've played the second copy; if you can't explain the rules of a board game during a party in less than 30 seconds, you're not going to play it. (Depends on your guests too; I once had to explain Password to someone about two years old than I am that had never seen the show.)

Unfortunately, both Place Your Bets! and the Cross-Wits photos have been sold.

The photos found a good home--mine.
