I wouldn't allow it in my game. The thief can attempt to steal small items. The crawling hand has no gold value nor does it say "No Value" so it is not an item and can't be stolen. I would consider it the same way as a thief trying to steal a hireling, not so much.

The Crawling Hand specifically says it is a small Item, so yes, it can be stolen. However, it has no Gold Piece value printed, so it cannot be sold or lost to cards that depend on the GP value.

The Crawling Hand card is explicit that you may keep it as a small Item.

You don't suck and most of the time that answer would be reasonable. This card is weird.

That said, especially in this forum, we'd prefer that people not reply to questions if they aren't staring right at the card or rule being asked about; it's too easy to confuse new players with conflicting answers.

Thanks, Andrew. One more question about it.
What if I face Bad Stuff or Curse which says to me "lose Your most expensive Item" and Crawling Hand is the only Item I have? Should I lose Crawling Hand in this case?

If it's your only Item, it's the most expensive one (although its true cost is immeasurable and incalculable).

Thank You very much, Andrew!
The very last question I have after Your answers.
Can Really Impressive Title be stolen?
Can Really Impressive Title be lost (due to Curse or Bad Stuff) as most expensive Item if it is the only Item?

Really Impressive Title is not an Item, so it's not affected by issues, concerns, or activities that would apply to Items.

Since your follow-up really doesn't apply to the original question concerning the Crawling Hand, I would ask that any further questions with respect to other cards be asked in a new thread.
