See-through boosters! Again!!!

Post by GlobalBoosterHunter » Thu Oct 27, 2016 5:33 am

See through Boosters

Slowly scanning and uploading all my boosters and I have just finished Born of the Gods (I am doing them somewhat alphabetically)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3z_eB ... sp=sharing

It looks like the Spanish and Traditional Chinese Boosters are all printed in the USA.

The boosters look fine but when you scan them they are nearly transparent in the fields.

In BNG-SPA-3 you can see that the tip card is something about the protour and in BNG-SPA-2 you can see the card through the back of the pack (I am guessing it is a common though so not an issue.)

Nothing important, just stands out a bit when you have them all together.

Unbelievable! I can't understand why the process or the wrapper is so different from one language to another... but this is hilarious.

That's impressive! What are you scanning with? I have some of these packs, but my scanner does not see through them, nor can I see through with my eyes. I also verified that wrappers are foil lined inside, so how does this work?

Interesting. I assume these are errors where the foiling inside is missing?

I did not notice anything in hand but I will go back and look at them now.

I think these were sent to me by Chapuzas so there is a good chance his will be similar.

I no longer use my scanner at home, I use my multi-function device at work. It is a beast!

Sees though the older packets very easily

Sadly I don't have more than one of each type so I can't crack one open to see if the foiling is inside or not.

Once again LOL to all who claim having or knowing of Summer Edgar packs where the top Uncommon is unknown.

It would be hard to prove it was Summer if you couldn't see the card.

This is the first proof I have that it is a genuine Summer booster. It was bought from a reputable source so I didn't want to damage the booster further by checking, and also, the actual cards in the booster don't matter to me.

It was only by scanning the booster that it showed up so well and it was the picture that gave it away immediately.
