Dungeons & Dragons vintage treasures - part 5

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen... tududududu (drums beats... XD)... back from the 90's (or before... well in the end of the XXth century ! :P), here it is... tududududu (...XD²)... the legendary, the unique...

...Al Qadim Campaign cloth patch !!

Ouch... isn t it.

I am missing words to describe this sooo unique item...

As for the baseball cap... I d never had the idea to get this "masterpiece" into my collection if I hadn t been mesmerised by this damn ebay XD... But you know the drill... it s always the same... you were looking for something in particular and... tadaaaam... the thing was there in the search list, just in front of your exhausted eyes... and curiosity is a powerful vice... so (?!) you click on details... and the thing is getting huge on your screen... shiny... attractive... almost whispering :

"just a few bucks dude... so few... I ll be your precious... hurry ! they re all after me !" o____O

And you clicked that damn "BUY NOW" button before ya even had the idea to resist the call...  T____T

...and some days after...a bubble-wrapped letter arrives at yours... you open it... Et voila... a cloth patch in your hand, 2 in fact, I got a TSR logo one too...
O_oV
... totally useless, not so shiny... and of course quickly dumped on some shelf...

*sigh*


After some searches on the net it appears other D&D licensed logos have been adapted into cloth patches.
Also exist the TSR, D&D, AD&D 2nd, Greyhawk, Forgotten Realms, Spelljammer, Ravenloft and DarkSun logos. (cf Tome of Treasures database)

And apparently, no DragonLance one... well except the one on the cap tho... 

And within all these, imo, for sure Al Qadim logo is the worst... I mean why did they add this "CAMPAIGN" under the logo ?!?

Young collector, of your own compulsive click, distrust you have to... :P
