Mark, one question. Is your die-cut variation #32 Weakies supposed to be red instead of orange, or did something go wrong with the photo transfer? Just wondering.

It does seem a little more red than orange in the scan. But, it's more orange if you look at it in real life.

But, look at the 1st series Weakies, then look at the Diecut version. The 1st series version, in the scan, is more orange.

So, I'm not sure about that.

What are you looking for as upgrades to the borderless OS1 stickers?  Pretty sure I have a nice Fink around, and maybe some other extras that would help you.

I'm not sure what you mean. I just want simple white back counterparts of those respective titles. If you mean grade, then as long as there's no writing, it has a border, and it is at least mid grade then I am fine. My Master Want List shows all of the titles that are borderless or have writing.

Too bad you don't have a way to implement the scans into your chart.

Not sure if I can. If I could, then I would have to rearrange the whole thing. That would be a righteous pain in the a**. The only solution would be a Google document, which I already decided against.

So, I'm not sure about that.

Whether it looks red or orange just has to do with how heavily the sticker was inked. My 1st series Weakies seems to be heavily inked and looks red to me.

Having scanned over 50,000 vintage packaging pieces in my day, and having had a desire to archive them digitally in an accurate way, I can speak to this issue somewhat and offer additional insight, I think.   

Almost any scanner you get is going to have trouble accurately capturing within the orange/yellow range - I've owned a few over the years and every model has had this issue.  Within the scanner sensor, it will skew oranges toward the red end of the spectrum.  So, baring any post-scan color corrections, whatever red-to-orange issues there may be on the original sticker, it will be aggravated by most commercial/consumer scanners and make it look "more red". 

I'm not certain of the causation but it must have something to do with scanner sensors or the bulbs they use to illuminate the subject. 

I'm ALWAYS correcting the shift in oranges on pieces I scan.  Just had this issue present itself over the weekend when I was scanning a mid-1960's Doritos bag.  Lovely oranges and mustard yellow colors that turned more redish and canary yellow before correcting them in Photoshop.  :-)

Of course, any fading within the inks of the actual sticker would tend to leave the red plate of the printing less affected than the others, which could also add to this. 

So, that's my two cents!  And here's that Doritos bag I was working on!

Thanks for the info. I am thinking that it isn't my scanner, though, just because the other Weakies is still orange.. (Yes, the borderless one.) But it is definitely nice to see your process in case of using that in the future.

One thing I think you should change is the condition standard, to EX+. Because there is no way a legitimately NM Lavirus or any of the other short prints would sell at prices this low.

In an effort for simplicity, I am making it on a website now.

I know I haven't been to steady with how I've been doing this yet but this is the cleanest way, trust me.

I will put the link at the top of the page. It obviously is early, I have only put some diecuts in as of now. But, there will be more in the future.

Enjoy!

I got my Alcohol Seltzer today, so that's now on there. And, I'm starting to add 1st series stuff.

I am hoping to finish Newtport still. (Cavich Parodies)

Thanks! Hope you think the guide is helpful.

Been starting to add more scans as I am likely to take a break with "Cavich Parodies" for this weekend. Not for certain though..

Series 15 Scans are on the site, will add the prices tomorrow.
Will add Series 16 Scans tomorrow likely.

Will try to start scanning series 3, and series 5.

Thanks.

Mark, I love your sticker website! Only one boo-boo, however-in the Number Variations section of the Die-Cuts, it should say "This led to...". If you put an "a" in it, it's the metal, not the plural of "lead". It's a very common mistake that I've seen several times; you're not the first one to do this, believe me-and you won't be the last, I'm sorry to say. Just thought you'd like to know.

Mark, You are a brave man for taking on a price guide! Kudos to you!

Maybe I missed it, but I didn't see the cloth series stickers listed. No collection is complete without those ;)

You are right.  >(

Edit: I have them on the spreadsheet, just not the Webpage yet.

Added Series 9 and finished Series 14.

Series 11-13 are the last OS that need to be added.

Thanks,

Mark, do you intend to put in the Wacky Ads as well? I noticed that that series was missing from the Price Guide Website.
