Got this today from my LGS, but it's so awesome I still want to brag it here.

Image

I've been meaning to show these sealed promo packs for some time, but never got around to taking pictures and posting them 'til now.

I do have more sealed packs, but showing off my complete 2011, 2012, & 2013 FNM sets is a good start. :)

Clay! Those sealed packs are really really neat.

Hope you can get your whole collection together and put it in the "collections" section. I don't think there is anything in there like that yet.

Keep up the good work.

Thanks Gary. my whole sealed "collection" won't be together until I get my stuff that's stored back in the States, though.

I'll add posting the sealed packs sets in the collections section to the "project" list.

I like the way you have the packets displayed in the pages. They would look good laid out by year I'm sure.

Don't wait till you have them all to start a collections section. What you have right here is well worth putting up--IMHO.

Well, I guess when I finish up a few pending transactions and receive those sealed packs, I'll post the pages in the collections section. the packs in storage will have placeholder cards stating so, and ones I'm still looking for will have something like "missing".

the pages are something I picked up like a week before I left Japan. I hope to go back there for the Nagoya GP, and can pick up more while I'm in the area. The pack of pages looks like:

I was just so excited about these that I decided to go through the trouble of sorting out how to post pictures. Hopefully this works...

As soon as I saw the pictures I started to get quite excited but shamefully it was over the pages rather than the content. They look like they have been made specifically for boosters.

Very nice. I have bought a lifetimes supply of booster pages from the UK and I am slowly filling them but some of them require a bit of streching to accommodate a booster. Shame I didn't see these first but in the spirit of discovery if you do happen to come across any more in the future I wouldn't mind getting hold of a sample to try.

I have a lot of spares in boxes and they could do with being a bit better sorted.

What are the bars top and bottom for, can you inset a printed header and footer into them?

Nope,

all I can see are a load of magic cards in slabs with the number 10 written on them. Try again.

Got some more goodies today:

If you have the patience, skill, and determination to, you can cut open an end to insert something into the top and bottom of the pages, but be prepared to practice on one sheet a few times to get the technique down, unless you are better at this kind of thing than I am. The headers and footers were not designed to be used, but you can do so if you really want to.

I used to get the bag sealer and scapels to my old pages to make custom sizes, (and the hole punches when I accidently bought 3-hole pages). I might just give this a try, have you seen any for sale online?

I got in some Italian 4th Edition starter decks, and decided to film the opening of them while hunting for regular 4th Edition versions of the Italian I2P cards (for scanning purposes). Enjoy! I know I did.
