Would you like me to get info on these next time I see them ? Yes, I would appreciate that a lot. I may yet make another display and have, for years, thought of a land display (not the wonderfully complete sets talked about here--just one of each art). Pages like that would be great. You can probab...

I know this is an old post Magic-Belgium but I feel I must make a comment in fairness. Printing processes have evolved a lot since the beginning of Magic. The Duelist was telling how the first sets were produced. It looked like they were made in a kitchen. Actually there was a kitchenete in Peter's ...

Some of you may not be aware that the reason Primal Clay did not come out in Japanese 4th Ed. and that it, plus 6 more (if I remember right), did not come out in Chinese or Korean was because the reps in those countries felt the art may ...

I've seen a lot of these among YuGiOh players/collectors recently in Belgium. I was surprised since I had never seen those in the past. ...and besides, the top of the card is hidden, making the whole page, in my opinion, definitely ugly. Interesting. I have never seen any for sale. My test page had...

My best hypothesis so far is that they would be too heavy and since the 9 pocket pages are sealed in the plastic, the seal would not resist to the weight. Anyone has a better explanation ? Don't tell me something like "Ultra Pro decided not to make them because they would not sell enought..." Humm,...

Re: Not WotC display

I don't think that display is WotC's. I believe it belongs to Peter Adkinson's father. He had it at GenCon several years back. I was able to fill in a couple missing pieces for him. Very nice guy.... I may have said something wrong. You are 100% correct. The display does belong to me and was made b...

Yes, it appears to be much more complete. Right now, though, that program is having problems with my tax preperation program. Need to figure that out before I do anything else.

Thanks again

There's a software (based on Access) that I'm using since the beginning, called Magic Suitcase. WOW! You brought back some memories there. I used their program years ago but changed to my own DB because I wanted to do some things I couldn't do with their software--then. I just dl it to see what it ...

Needed to update my knowledge due to the big change of Access 2007... I didn't make the move. Still using Access 2002 and office 2003. They both will do a lot more than I know how to make them do.... There is that saying about old dogs and new tricks and I just don't need to start learning new DB s...

I use Ultra Pro gallery portfolios for small sets (<180 cards) like this : http://www.playdeal.de/pt/gfx/8060.jpg Let me say first. I hate binders. I use them and I hate them. I have been looking at the gallery portfolios and wishing they were made large enough for full sets. At present my smaller ...

I usually use Access to keep track of my collections, but at this moment I've used the checklist from http://www.apathyhouse.com/, and imported it to Excel. I started with Access and occasionaly import it to Excel when I want to make massive changes. With 13,000 records it is a bit bulky and I am n...

I have my (relativly small) collection in binders on top of a book shelf, not much room for display in my one room appartement.. I can identify with that agzz. Most of my collection is in binders and this display is only up when I am taking it someplace. Thus, I like to take it places just so I can...
