Thanks for the tip, I've already spent too much for this few months.
However, now I have a nice small collection to begin with :), including first edition LOTR set with DJs from U.K , ACE set and a nice set of Tolkien interviews. I have a feeling calendars will also be on the list :). Thank you Jeremy for the info, I see the price is always in few hundred dollars range, I hope it won't go any higher than that before I manage to buy one.

Just an FYI noted on the eBay seller's listing for the Tim Kirk calendar:

FYI: we have sold seven copies in VF plus since this trove was discovered and this is the last in this good shape
We still have a few copies in fine shape


So it sounds like this particular batch of nice condition calendars is running low, and afterwards the market will return to the occasional (one per year plus/minus) showing up for sale.

As to the 1969 Ken Rudolph calendar: Two are currently listed on eBay by different sellers. Am wondering if the market for these is somewhat saturated as several recent listings went calling and were relisted. As uncommon (preceding the marketing of Ken Rudolph's hoard, I would have said rare) as these are, there are only so many collectors of Tolkien calendars (specifically) or Tolkienalia (in general.)

Updated Compleat Gyde to Tolkien Calendars site today. Changed out the "Calendar of the Month" (which is a misnomer as it's often up for several months before I do so again.) Recent updates have included pages displaying the monthly illustrations for many of the more recent calendars. Am working my way backwards (now around 2011) and slowly forwards (just made the 1981 Ballantine the CotM feature) on these. Monthly illos are now available for 99 of the multipage calendars.

Happy Spring to all! Hope your Tolkien Reading Day was fun!

Thank you for info Parmastahir!

My girlfriend got Ken Rudolph 1969 calendar from that hoard for a bit over 300 dollars. It was one of the first that was sold from that hoard so it is in near mint condition. It really is beautiful.

Prices have dropped since then. I bought mine now for $110.
