The First D&D Ever Sold

The other day I noticed the name of an academic colleague in the list of playtesters for a Mongoose Runequest book. When buying up a cache of out-of-print (but soon to be in-print again) Dragon Warriors books from a comic shop, I started to talk about the art of Jon Hodgson, who, it turns out, used to work there. And it also turns out that gaming and the small-press comic scene also overlap - whodathunkit?

Greg Stafford's story of how he came to own the first copy of D&D ever sold stretches credulity a little, though. Two giants of gaming, linked, in gaming utero, by a belt buckle catalogue.
