Last night's winner was Night Owl. He's on a roll.
As promised yesterday, I am going to play around with this one particular Chronicles brand/set.
In the last scan yesterday there was a card from Clear Vision, but you really couldn't tell it was an acetate card. The same is for the set above: Clearly Donruss. It too is an acetate set, but you can't tell it from the scan. It shows a white border which is really not there. The white coloring comes from the top of my scanner.
This bothered me a lot. Even more than no logos which I can not do anything about. But, the backing I can. I had two spiral notebooks laying near me when scanning the cards. Right off I knew one was darker than the other. Those are the two scans above.
After those two I remembered there is a box of "scrapbooking" papers from my mom's stuff that I was going to donate and just haven't got around to that trip. I have made many of trips already, and just a few things left to take. The papers is just one box of what was 6 or 7 boxes of misc. colored or decorated paper.
Now I am having a little fun.
That particular gray looks pretty good as a border.
These polka dots reminded immediately of those gimmicky Gold Star sets that Topps has been doing the last few years. (Blue Stars and Orange Stars, etc).
This one definitely has a 70's vibe to it like Upper Deck Decades.
I could have done this all night as there must have been a hundred plus different designs/colors. But alas, I had my little bit of fun. Now to finish off the rest of this set that I got without any additional backing.
Alright, that was enough. I will move onto the next sets tomorrow with more new to me cards.
