How many companies produced material for OD&D back in the days, with or without permission from TSR?

Do you just mean historically, or would you include the OSR publishers that make things that work with OD&D?

With or without is a pretty big category. Playing at the World references a ton of third party material in the early days.

Sorry it took me a while to get back to this.

I was mainly thinking about companies that produced material in the 1970s, such as Judges Guild, Wee Warriors etc.

We could have a separate thread about OSR publishers that have appeared since the OGL. :)
