This explains the quality

Noticed recently that T-Chinese 4th boxes say they were printed by Shepard Poorman Corp:

Might explain the 'poor' quality of the product! Ba-dum-bum ching!

Hi Mark

Very interesting. Do you have an extra Starter T-Chinese 4Th Edition?

"as well as providing part of the Mirage print-run intended for sale in the United States."

That this mean that Mirage Starter Poorman version eventually exist ?

This all makes sense, given that WOTC was desperate for more print capacity when the game exploded and Carta Mundi couldn't keep up.

I have opened a few starter boxes of Mirage printed in the US, and the quality was similar to TC 4th. If I remember correctly, the boxes do not mention Shepard Poorman, just that they were printed in the US.

Hi All

Coming back on that topic, as I just find out that Shepard Poorman was the Printer for Rivals Quick Start Set , can owners have a look at Mirage Products (Starter Deck, Starter Deck Box, Boosters) to find evidence that some of them were Made in the US by Shepard Poorman, I wonder if others MTG Products are involved with that new discovery.

For Mirage, neither the starter deck, or box of starter decks mentions Shepard Poorman Corp. Only says Printed in the USA.

Hi Mark

Do you have any very cheap singles Mirage cards from what you think is Shepard Poorman Mirage? If so, grab one, tear apart and look for the Black Glue in the middle as the cards from Carta Mundi have a blue one. But, to me it seems logical that the name should be on Mirage Products like the 4Th Edition T-Chinese or Rivals.
