H3/H4 retconned these adventures to take place in FR. Thought it was worth a mention.
    Stormonu, where in H1/H2 are you seeing the Greyhawk references? I've just had a quick look through them, and I didn't spot anything obvious in the introductions, so I might be missing the link?

    The article in #9 I managed to find, but it was issue #19 where I drew a blank. The only mention of Greyhawk in that issue seems to be a reference to the number of spells per level in the original Greyhawk supplement on page 24. (But no actual Greyhawk lore.)

    For #212, there is a mention of WG7: Castle Greyhawk on page p24, but that appears to be a story of one group's experience with the module, and also no new Greyhawk lore.

    Might those two references be what you had in mind?
    Still need to dig out issue #212 but for issue #19

    The Battle for Snurre's Hall
    The Origins '78 D&D Tournament
    Pg# 3,4,6,21

    It actually covers a synopsis of the tournaments that became modules G1-3

    On Pg#5 There is a full page ad for the G series modules featuring a half-page illustration from G1

    How many ettins is a fire giant worth: Competitive D&D
    By Bob Blake
    Pg#6

    Some mention of modules G1-3 and D1-3
    Column 1 Paragraphs 7-9
    Column 2 Paragraph 1

    I don't believe I referenced the mention of the D&D Greyhawk rule supplement book.

    The only Greyhawk reference I can find after a quick scan of H1 is in the 32 page adventure booklet, pg#4 boxed text on the left side of the page 5th paragraph down... "The Greatest show on Oerth..."

    Perhaps there is an earlier printing with more, but otherwise there appears to be absolutely no connection with the Greyhawk setting. I don't believe I own a copy of H2 anymore.

    Yes, that is what initially alerted me to it being in Greyhawk. H4's introduction has more information in the beginning about the switch from Greyhawk to fitting it into the Realms (talking about drying up part of a glacier to set it in FR).

    Nice catch on the "Greatest show on Oerth" reference, but H4 doesn't seem to mention Greyhawk, it just talks about the process of retrofitting the series into the Forgotten Realms. By itself, I'm not sure the single "Oerth" reference is enough to qualify H1 as a Greyhawk collectible, I'm afraid.

    Here is another reference I just came across.

    Dragon #17 Boredom and the Average D&D Dungeon By Jim Ward

    Pg#26 column 1 paragraph 3 continues to the next column.

    A brief desccription of a level of the original Castle Greyhawk as run by Gygax and Kuntz.

    Indeed!: for a fuller description of the Machine Level and its design history, see RJK's blog @ Lord of the Green Dragons: THE MACHINE LEVEL: SPECIAL WEB INTRODUCTION

    TD 17 also includes "Faceless Men & Clockwork Monsters"---an account of a group of PCs who begin in GH Castle, and are banished via Cursed Scroll to the Starship Warden of Metamorphosis Alpha infamy.

    Another good source for GH allusions from Dragon is Russ Taylor's index @ http://www.cmc.net/~rtaylor/greyhawk/dragon_index.html : it may be worth cross-checking for other omissions.
