Original Series 1 new sheet configurations?

Had these been called out before?  I see reference to a new sheet code and title arrangements I don't recall hearing about.

Interesting. So Bald or tasters choke was going to replace Band-ache?

No, it looks like Bald replaced Skimpy which is odd since they aren't even the same shape.  Then it seems BAld was to be replaced by Taster's Choke maybe due to pack collation issues?  There doesn't seem to be a specific title identified to replace Band-ache.  I have never found Skimpy to be a short printed.  Since Tasters and Bald didn't appear til series 4, it seems this sheet was nothing more than a theory.  Then more and more c&ds came in to the point that most of the sheet needed to be pulled so they didn't even both making a version 2 of series 1.

yes, it's been called out before.

I brought up this new sheet arrangement over 4 years ago when Toppsvault auctioned off a sheet showing the image negatives. That one not only actually has Bald and Tasters Choke in the sheet, but also had Bandache replaced by a Molten
My thought at the time was that whatever revision they were doing it was intended to be for the mail in poster.

But we still haven't seen a full color version of this sheet.
here's a pic of the original blue negative with the 2nd series stuck over some of the cards.
and I made an inverse to make it easy to see the Taster's Choke and Bald outlines (and pasted mini versions in to show the matching outlines)

what do you know, the search function worked...
this exact sheet (and those same pics) from Eric's collection were posted about by Slayskool over a year ago.

I'm with you about the mail-in, the copyrights on Bald and Taster's choke indicate their production after the first series, right?

yep - I'm sure that's why the copyrights are specifically pointed out on those pasted in cards - because they came from one of those series 2 proof sheets and they don't conform to the 1st series
