Re: ELD = a new Alt 4th?

Okay, folks, here are some rough-&-ready pictures I snapped w/ my cell under black light. You will see all three variations I noticed w/ ELD card stock: 1. Bright and fluorescent card stock, what we've seen for 20+ years; UV light: black borders on both sides appear golden and the foiled version loo...

On a side note, all my booster boxes were made in Japan
We can leave this to Mark to sort out :-D

I was just curious, and still am sort of, whether I missed something about new card stock or new surface finish/coating. I still hope someone more knowledgeable than me decides to chime in …

Which country were the fat packs and the booster boxes made in?
According to box and wrappers everything was made in the US. Only some prerelease boosters I got were made in Japan.

ELD = a new Alt 4th?

Hi Folks: Sorting away ELD cards I noticed a color variance among stacks and indeed, cards are different under UV light: cards whose card stock shines bright and white under UV light as usual and cards that do not, just dull colors. Moreover, the black edges around the card turns golden under UV lig...

Booster Pack Overhaul

The traditional booster pack that Magic has used since its inception has been renamed a Draft Booster. It will be joined by two new permanent types of booster packs: the Theme Booster and the Collector Booster. https://www.hipstersofthecoast.com/2019/07/wizards-unveils-throne-of-eldraine-at-san-die...

As of now, Mark, the only open question is Korean. Russian was confirmed, too, although the page doesn't reflect it yet.

I think a single place to collect images of these cards to share them with the community at large would be great
Hi zaphodava:

I think this is an excellent idea!

For what it's worth, I use flickr but would switch to google for a serious project for the reasons mentioned.

Good luck!

Re: List of hard to distinguish FWB and 4th Edition Cards

Ron: Two years ago I told you in a private message, you didn't respond. So let me now say it in public: I do not appreciate seeing your name next to mine unless you pay for the rule books and cards I shipped you in 2014 and you never paid for.
