Peculiar booster of revised

Post by fancyman » Tue Nov 27, 2012 6:30 am

I noticed this peculiar pack during a google image search. The image comes originally from http://www.ioffer.com/139611607 (at the very bottom of the page)

Was there ever a time when Revised packs had a white trademarking?

I don't have many but they all have black TM, as does my Summer Booster.

Very interesting, I will have to keep a look out!

Cheers

It's not only the TM, texts are in slightly different positions/sizes

The R of "Revised" should not be connected tot the M of "Magic"

and the "15 Tradable Game Cards" should be located below the center between "Booster Pack" and "Deckmaster"

My "TM" are also all black and i have a much thicker black border arround the blue "The Gathering"

Chinese fake? Considering the current prices, it would be no wonder :-P

You think a modern reproduction?

I did see that the corners didn't look searched and the booster looked like it had just come out of a box, not the usual wear and tear from being in a collection.

If it was a modern fake I would expect to see more of them around, no point faking only one!

I tried to find some details for the seller to get in touch but no luck.

Fake or not, I would like to get hold of some, that's for sure!

Repack of crap cards (they should be mint ones)

It just doesn't look "right", thats for sure.

On the other hand the crocheted pillow cover is definitely hand made and very nicely done.....

I saw that image floating around on various webpages several years ago. I think it's been stolen and reused several times. Who knows where the original came from. Great observation though... I never noticed that peculiarity. How odd... :-k

I contacted the seller but he said that he only had two from a long time ago and that he had sold them both. The mystery persists! 8-|

Nice work with the animated gif. Can you do it again comparing the weird pack to a pack of beta?

+1 on the nice work! A picture speaks a thousand words so a couple of moving ones must be worth at least two thousand!

I wish I had managed to get hold of it, now it is going to be very interesting trying to find out anything about it.
