Considering all of the discussion on text alignment, I thought it would be appropriate to copy the following info into this thread... Magic cards were originally created in two layers. The border and artwork were a high resolution TIFF file. The type and symbols were an EPS that was overlaid on the ...

Also, old topic: http://magiclibrarities.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6839&highlight=shadis I discuss that Shadis #16 has a sealed card from the Dark in silver foil. I am unsure as to which cards were possible in this "foil" 1-card pack, but I opened a Goblin Hero in one. Additionally, there were rand...

It is interesting to remember here that Italian Ice Age Dire Wolves are actually 3G. That is interesting. The English Magic production team had its hands full with the English cards, and a second production team was created to work on the foreign stuff (Revised). It looks like both teams were worki...

I started with the English sets in order of release date, which is fairly well documented. Unlimited & Arabian Nights were released about the same time, but Unlimited uses the smaller art box like previous sets, while Arabian Nights was the first set to use the larger art box like subsequent sets. N...

1. No correct Drudge Skeletons in either DU or 4th (misprint uncorrected) There was a member who wrote that he owns a large stock of both DU and 4th. If he would simply count the Drudge Skeletions and two or three other common titles for reference we had the above hypothesis strengthened or falsifi...

and bringing to mind it's mandatory that, in the case of a text error, the alignment between misprint and correct version may not vary, I cannot come to another opinion than Drudge Skeletons misprint is a picture error. I'm not sure I agree with this one, but it shouldn't be very hard to check it o...

Does anyone know what that black card with the bold copyright is above?

So far we have Channel, Library of Leng, and that black card.

That's going to be a real nice collection.

One of the original dual lands has a different artwork because the original was lost. I don't remember off the top of my head, but I think the new art first showed up in Revised.

I've also found that there are 2 Alliances promo cards. The are Phyrexian War Beast in a September 1996 comic book, & Soldevi Steam Beast in an October 1996 comic book. Again, this was After the Alliances set was released in June 1996. These cards would also have had a short special print run just f...

The Chronicles cards were Johan in a March 1996 comic book, and Dakkon Blackblade in a June 1996 comic book. Again, this would be After the Chronicles set was released in July 1995. These cards had a short special print run just for insertion into the comics. The same article that says there are 3 C...

This link contains some interesting info about the Ice Age promo cards Fylgja & Prismatic Ward, including the information that they were printed shortly after Jan 30 1995. Chub Toad was in a July 1995 comic book, and Bone Shaman was in an August 1995 comic book. Many of the Ice Age promos were inclu...

Thanks Alexis, that helped a lot! It looks like the Homelands promotional cards were Apocalypse Chime, Baron Sengir, & Feroz Ban. These cards were in a February 1996 comic book, which means that they were released After the Homelands set. These three cards had a short special print run just for inse...

Is the World Champion card itself a regular sized card? I always thought it was regular size, but it looks so big in those pictures.
