Explanation of misprints from German Limited Common Sheet

Post by Neuron » Tue Nov 05, 2013 8:48 pm

The reason why I like misprints is that they tell us a lot about how the designing and printing process proceed:

There are 26 misprints on the German Limited common sheet which are either alignment errors or wrong text on the card.
There are 10 Islands with French copyright text, which I am not going to talk about here.
This is about shifted text errors and the German Wald misprint.
The last one is well known, the others are made public here for the first time:

Two Islands V2 are affected. Position on the sheet is:

Here is the explanation in pictures.

All conclusions are based on the hypothesis:

1.One column of this sheet ended cohesively as the common part in one booster.

2. A player normally received subsequent columns on a draft, for instance 4, 5, 6 or 11, 1, 2.


The here interesting misprints marked red:

Then my thoughts, look for the red marked:

The 18 shifted text errors:

Wald:

The errors therefore not solely occurred at random, but were caused by shifting cards on the sheet in order to prevent broken synergies in the draft or, respectivley, to enchance the flavour of the game.
