That's a good question. It looks like a box that Cliff would have packed up, and it somehow got lost. I'm going to ask the seller how he got it.

Yeah, it definitively touched my hands once, but I don't understand when or how it got from me to them.

I was no longer in Oklahoma when those dice were made (I think), so the box almost had to have gone from me to a convention to there. i.e. lost or stolen.

i see the auction was cancelled, so hopefully the person listing it will do the right thing. i figured something may have been amiss to see so many of the same die in a lot, outside the old TSR "Bubble Gum Machine"

Thinking out loud...
The auction was listed as being in Yukon Oklahoma. I actually lived there back in the 90's and early 00's, but that was before I was part of SFR.

Yukon is about 30 miles from where the warehouse used to be, but I moved the warehouse to Georgia in 2007 (and never went back) and this die was produced in 2011. So it wasn't left behind during that move.

That goblin box was also produced after 2007.

I can't think of any reason I would have sold or given that many dice to a single individual. There was never a rep or gamestore or anything.

So maybe someone took it from the warehouse, but it's not like we get a lot of visitors there...

So maybe I packed this box to take to a convention where it was left or stolen. I just can't remember why I would've taken THAT MANY of that die to a convention, unless it was the first year it was produced.

This is definitely the type of thing I would've done (packing a single die in a box), but I just can't remember doing it... so it must've been years ago.

hopefully it can be figured out. if the auction wasnt cancelled, i was considering bidding to see if you guys wanted them back, (not sure how much a lot like that would have cost to produce, but every little bit can help or hurt the bottom line).

or, maybe i just woulda sent a ransom note, pay me one set of metal drakes or the crusaders get it, lol

Apparently I put the fear of God into him or something. One email, and poof! Gone!

And it was even a friendly email. I don't usually go in with guns blazing until they really piss me off.

He's not responding to emails. I know it's the holiday season, but might be time to ping him again.
