World Championship Decks (WCD) 1997-2004

Postby JohnnyTH » 24 Jan 2016, 12:54

Greetings CCGHQ!

I'm opening a new thread specific for XLHQ scans of World Championship Decks (WCD), since I couldn't find another dedicated one.

Can someone kickstart this by giving me an update on the status:
- What has been done? Are we at the starting line?
- Who is willing to work on this? (Scans/Postprocessing)
- If you can provide scans, which sets do you have in NM/M conditions?

I have a few decks myself, I did some experiment scans but I think i'm not as good as you guys with the postprocessing:

EDIT: I can't post image links as new user :(

Cheers

I have two decks currently scattered among old boxes so finding all the cards might prove difficult (if possible at all) but I'll upload every card I can find in my MEGA folder. Below is listed every card I found so far and the ones that are strikethrough have been uploaded.

MEGA Folder Link

1998 - Randy Buehler
Missing all the promo material and the sideboard Grindstone. Otherwise complete.

2000 - Janosch Kühn

We don't have these, nor the Pro Tour Collector Set 1996. There are a total of 40 decks. We needs scans of the biography inserts, decklist inserts, blank cards, tokens, etc. ABU Games lists all of the cards with extras. Magic Librarities only lists the extras but is easier to browse.

@JohnnyTH - There is some "noise" in your scans. Please follow the directions here under the How to Scan heading. Don't process your scan, we want to see the raw scan to diagnose the problem.

@Fizz - We have tried processing cards from multiple contributors in the past. It is very difficult to color match the scans so they feel like they belong together. If we only have two people, we can make it work but in general we need complete sets.

Thanks to both of you.

I'm happy to scan for people if you send me the cards. And I'll happily send them back if someone can pay for return shipping.

@skibulk I can see where processing cards from different contributors can become a headache and I do appreciate you sharing the site past experiences with this kind of issue. I'll leave what I've done so far with the Janosch Kühn deck on MEGA but won't scan anything else for it since I'm sure I'm missing more than half the cards. As far as the Randy Buehler deck goes, I've found every card but the one sideboard Grindstone and the promo materials.

Thank you for your reply skibulk, never mind my scanner, it's really bad, if we get this going i can borrow a decent scanner from a friend and send you all the raw scans.

I don't mind purchasing the missing decks, i think this site is a valuable resource for everyone involved in magic, but i would first like to know which one are covered by someone

None of the decks have been scanned yet. Canon makes good scanners for the most part. Please send a test scan with your "new" scanner before you commit to scanning all the decks.

Looks like we are slowwwwllly getting a small team together (JohnnyTH/kudit/Fizz/rotarydials). So, to that end, I went and picked up the 1996 Pro Tour Collector Set =). Also, dug through some old boxes and came up with all four 2004 Championship decks. So, oddly enough, I've got the beginning and the end... now we just need the middle.

In the coming week, I'll try to put together a more coherent post about which decks are needed, start crossing them off, etc.

My biggest hurdle is going to be dedicating time to getting the scanning done. I'm currently trying to sort singles to get them up on ebay... never enough time in the day.

List of all the decks, 1996-2004. I'll post individual decks and decklists in the coming days. I may eventually move this to a Google Spreadsheet for convenience of editing/adding columns to check off card scans, etc..

Google Spreadsheet is complete, waiting for kudit or Fizz to post it. Removed the list from here as it's duplicate of the spreadsheet.

I found the rest of the cards for the 1998 Randy Buehler deck including all the promo and tip cards so you can consider that deck complete. The cards were all rescanned in 1200 DPI and can be found in my MEGA Folder.

Also to whoever maintains the list in the previous post, I'm missing most of the cards for the 2000' Janosh Kuhn deck so 99% scan status is something I can't even come close to.

I did pick up both of the decks you had listed as semi-complete ('98 Buehler and 00' Kuhn), so we will have full decks to scan. I will update the spreadsheet, or you are welcome to as well.

Re: scanning- I'll probably be sending them to kudit. I tried to get my old scanner working on win7, not much luck.

As it looks now, I've seen most of 1998-2004 for sale here and there. Finding 1997 decks (complete sealed or complete unsealed) may be a very difficult challenge...

Got the package from rotarydials!

Started the scans with the empty boxes that were sent.
http://deckmaster.info/images/scans/ProTourBox.zip

Not quite sure how we want to process these (perhaps a single high res image with the main box unfolded, one with the 4 pairs boxes, one with the inner box unfolded, and 4 for the page pairs which should probably be edited how they would be printed as opposed to folded — I scanned that way to not have to take the staple out).

Not sure if anyone cares since this is awkward to categorize, but I'm happy to host the images.

Did I say the 1997 decks would be hard to find? Oh yes, I did.

Spoilers - I found three of them still sealed from 97. Don't have the photos on me now, will try to edit this post tonight.

Will send these and the last 1999 deck to kudit when he gets done scanning the first box...

I'm sorry. I've been busy with other stuff lately. I should have some more time later in a couple weeks to get more of the scans done. The boxes are done and up.
