I'd be pretty thrilled with one Benalish Hero and one Blue Elemental Blast if you still have any available!

I had a look at my Blue Elemental Blast Global set (only missing 4 cards), and it looks like the really early cards without a copyright date (English Revised and prior) use grey. Once the copyright date shows up, it's black until it turns white on Japanese 4th black border, Korean 4th black border, ...

I looked around the internet and also couldn't find anyone that had seen a foil version.

cephalid looter foil misprint

Some of the cephalid looters in oddessy were misprinted with the creature type cephalid wizard. Does anyone know if there is a Foil version of this misprint?

If we had them in highres here in the library, a lot of things would become easier.

I second this motion!

konnen fliegen literally means "can fly" Well, we did go from "flying" to "can fly" and back to "flying", so any progression is debatable :-O Actually the very first version was Fliegen rather than Fliegend, which would better transalte as "fly" So we went from "Fly" to "Can Fly" to "Flying". progr...

I see where I went wrong with the Scryb Sprites identification now. I’m sure I would have been able to figure it out via text alignment once I had both versions in front of me, but thanks for correcting me. I’ll move the one I have in my binder and edit my want list appropriately. 4Th Edition will b...

That is a fair solution. Thanks! Just in case the website at the other end of the link in your first post is ever taken down, I think we should mention here that the Will-O'-the-Wisp can be identified as follows... Volant = Tirage Non Limite, Unlimited, Revised, 3rd (whatever you want to call it) Vo...

For most of those cards, which set they belong to can also be identified by a slash over the lowercase i vs. a dot over the lowercase i. Slash = Tirage Non Limite, Unlimited, Revised, 3rd (whatever you want to call it) Dot = 4th edition The only one of those cards without a lowercase i is Will-O'-th...

It would be nice to see one of the textless test prints next to a Summer card for color comparison. Is this possible? If not, then the next best thing would be a good scan of the textless Samite Healer, as I have a Summer Samite Healer in my global set that I can scan and post for comparison.

Hi Tav Very interesting post, can you specify precisely what you mean by "Chinks" Sure, I circled them in this picture. They are on the Revised card, but not on the 4th or either test print. They are darker shaded areas around the edge of the textbox. Called chinks because they give the illusion th...

Note the textboxes (on black cards), and that outside of colouring, the Revised textbox differs in its design. This is most obvious with the chinks at the bottom and left of the textbox. Yes, the older sets including Revised, Legends, The Dark, Fallen Empires, and even the Harper Prism Book Promo c...

4th edition test print ---------------------- There was apparently a printing of cards in late summer 1994 which was intended to be 4th edition (back when it was going to be released in September 1994) which had borders and colors similar to (but not identical to) the now-released 4th edition. This...

Some of my Global sets have cards from the Two-Player Introductory Sets. I'll be able to help with those cards. I don't have all of the versions to compare yet. I can tell you that Scryb Sprites Introductory has different text than Scryb Sprites 4th or anything before that. I don't have a German 5th...
