Over the past year, Shakespeare has been rescanning his entire collection of over 4,500 cards using his high-quality scanner and the scans have finally arrived on the site! It took almost a year to individually rotate, crop, edit, and enhance each scan one-by-one, but the painstaking job is finally done! We actually finished editing the scans a month before summer started, but various things (Japan, Worlds, life, etc.) kept getting in the way of me uploading them and adding them to the website. Thank you Shakespeare for all of your dedication and hard work in collecting and scanning all the cards!
The new scans are clearer than ever before and are larger than previous batches of scans. The old batch of scans was posted here when dial-up was still commonplace, but now that most people are using a high-speed connection, we felt we could make the scans a little larger with less compression. The previous scans were already the best quality you could ever find, but these just blow anything and everything completely out of the water. Yes, we are literally crazy when it comes to scan quality! Just compare a few random samples below. You can open the scans simultaneously when clicking them and can drag them next to each other to compare the old quality versus the new quality.
