Was there ever a better validation of our hobby than this? Now, when people make fun of you, you can say "It's been around since before any of the popular sports of today. Try 1800 years! Why, collectors are paying nearly $18,000 for the dice used in our hobby..." Well, on second thought you shouldn't say that. But I still think it's one of the coolest things ever. I think if I were to pay that much for a 20-sider, it had better give me the best rolls of my life!
