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, DarkSun and Dragonlance ones. (cf Tome of Treasures database)


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

EDIT (Nov.2018) : Of course (gah! XD), in the past decade, I did found some other ones to add to my collection. I then managed to get the Forgotten Realms, SpellJammer, AD&D 2nd Ed. and Dragonlance ones (this last one remaining unlisted at Tome of Treasure btw).
