I've got a friend looking for a copy of A.D.T. Messenger Boy There's nothing here though, and considering how old it is I am not surprised. Does anyone know where aside from ebay one might find it?

There's Noble Knight, which does a business with older games.

You might also find out if the two owners here on BGG are interested in selling or trading.

You could try contacting Bruce Whitehill. I haven't seen much about him for a while but he was a preeminent game historian and might have an idea of where you could find it.

In this case, you're probably dealing more with antique dealers and not board gamers (who tend to be involved in games of the mid 20th century and later).

Using the Google search engine I found this listing which includes:

- BGG's listing
- Two game museum listings (which may be "online catalogs" more than physical museums)
- An auction listing of a framed copy that ended on May 2011
...and so on.

I also found a copy listed on ebay of a game called District Messenger Boy which is similar and from the same era, but not the game you are looking for.

TL;DR - I think this is outside the realm of used/OOP game stores and even the "hardcore" collectors and more in the realm of the specialty/antique auction house.
