Back around this time last year, I made a post to Dragonsfoot asking opinions of whether or not I should open a shrinkwrapped copy of the Mentzer "Red Box" Basic Rules. I've got the 1989 14th printing of the boxed set, so nothing terribly exciting collecting-wise, but it is new "mint in box".
I got a lot of mixed replies. Most people were of the opinion that I should either sell it for what would probably be only about ~$20-30, or just open it up and get playing with it. I am still ambivalent as to what to do with it, so I figure I'll ask the general community here, what you think I should do with it?
I've no real interest in selling it at this time, simply because trying to net $20-30 bucks means nothing to me. On the other hand, I'm not super desperate to open it up and "get playing", since it's not like I don't have enough editions of D&D already. It's mostly just the idea that I've got an untouched set of rules that's now aged 20 years, sitting pristine in a box, dice and all.
