Splendid Genesis & Fraternal Exaltation for the first time

Postby extreme » 21 Aug 2008, 11:04

Yes folks, that day has come. Our hard work has finally paid off: a user who respected what we have done so far felt the need to contribute and he was the only one who could help with those, so now we have real scans of them (the ones we had were recreated from templates). I really didn't think I would see the day. These are ones of the rarest magic cards, not unique, but very rare, and there was no decent resolution image of them anywhere before now, we are the first to release them - they'll probably spread fast afterwards.
That user is nummie, and we can't thank him enough.
He also has some other great rarities, but everything in due time. He'll possibly say a few words on this thread.
I believe these cards deserve larger versions to be fully appreciated, so I also included 300dpi images.
I also have no idea if the colors in Splendid Genesis are right, and have no way to verify.
Enjoy ! (hopefully one day we'll have a schichifukujin dragon and a world champion 1996 too :)

It is really a great day. Great thanks to nummie for this beautiful gift. :supz:

I also have no idea if the colors in Splendid Genesis are right, and have no way to verify.
Eventually both Garfield cards should scan together with a normal green and blue common card from a set released to the same time like the Garfield cards. So it would be possible for us to adjust the colors exactly.
Please nummie, if this is possible do a rescan. All four cards together in one scan would be the best. Thanks again for your great help.

Where those 2 scanned with the same scanner as the Fraternal Exaltation is really clean and smooth while Splendid Genesis has a lot of mosaic noise?
Other than that it's a really good thing someone managed to get those rares.

I don't think he has the cards anymore. And FG is definitely different than the sets it's contemporary to - 5th, visions. I really don't think it was printed in the same conditions. So that's the best we can do so far.
Also, it has a lot coarser printing raster - more like beta, definitely coarser than anything after unlimited - this is the mosaic noise actually. It's clearly visible in the 600dpi scan.

Hello,
Nummie here,
I am more than delighted to have been able to provide for such a great cause, I at one time tried to start a site just like this that bombed. Basically I saw the needs being met here that I saw so long ago, and decided that now was the time to give back for all of the tireless work I see here. I hope I'm able to contribute even fractionally as much as you all have. These cards are simply my gift to you.. the real heroes of the mtgie \ mws \ HiQ world. The real thanks belong to all of you. Keep up the hard work. =D>

These were made after careful analysis of the colors and comparing the backs with cards from the same period. I personally think these are as close to the originals as possible.
The green card is of the sticker variety type - see magic librarities - that's why it has coarser printing and slightly different colors.

This is a scan from the magic encyclopedia. It should be really close to the real thing.
