Mystic Heirloom 2021 Supplement

Even though I am pretty committed to the Community US Stamp album I still buy the Mystic supplements to see how they’re laid out. My 2021 supplement arrived in the mail today, and I only see 2 pages that need hacking. Page 1594, an updated page for the 2020 supplement, and page 1602, the flowers booklet both have broken up se-tenants. Seems like a pretty easy hack, so I think I’ll take some time and see if I can put this together real quick.

Mystic Heirloom Cleanup

Way back in 2012, when I started this site, I would post direct links to download my Mystic Hacks directly from files stored on my website.

Later, I switched to using Google Drive.

Well, it seems some of those older pages never made it from direct links to my Google Drive. The files have always been available. But you had to find my post and download the file from there.

I’m cleaning that up now.

The following Mystic Hacks are now available on my Google Drive:

  • Page 353 Hack
  • Page 387 Hack
  • Page 627 Hack
  • Page 629 Hack
  • Page 637 Hack
  • Page 649 Hack
  • Page 667 Hack
  • Page 701 Hack
  • Page 839 Hack

I’m sure I will find more tomorrow.

In 2004, I hacked pages 1048 and 1060. On Page 1048, I made the Disney stamps a block of 4, instead of a strip of 4:

Mystic Heirloom 2003 Retrofit Kit

This is my first hack since recovering from COVID-19. It’s Sunday, and I’m too tired to do much more than sit in front of a computer. So, you get the benefits of my boredom.

I changed 3 pages in the 2003 stamp pages: 1016, 1028, 1032

On page 1016, I kept all the Old Glory stamps connected:

On page 1028, I kept the Mary Cassatt Paintings as a block of four:

On page 1032, I converted the sheet of Holiday Music Makers stamps as a block of four, and I connected the booklet stamps as a block of four:

Everything is on my Google Drive.

Mystic Heirloom Year 2000 Retrofit Kit

I needed to change two pages in the Mystic Heirloom 2000 pages: Page 897 and Page 923.

On page 897, I took the strip of 4 Youth Team Sports stamps and made them a block of 4:

On page 923, I kept the Flowers Booklet stamp connected:

Both pages are available in one zip file on my Google Drive, called the 2000 Retrofit Kit.

Mystic Heirloom 2019 Supplement Retrofit Kit Revisit

My cactus flowers stamps came in the mail and I decided I didn’t want to mount the whole booklet, just the block of 10. This required a new page.

I added another version of the Page 1544 hack that allows you to mount just the ten block instead of the whole booklet.

New 7-zip file has been uploaded and the old file has been replaced.

Here is what the new page looks like:

Mystic Heirloom 2018 Supplement Retrofit Kit

Hacking the Mystic Heirloom 2018 supplement, only required I change 2 pages:

  1. Page 512 – Frozen Treats. Made sure all the stamps stayed connected.
  2. Page 1530 – Hot Wheels. It was easiest to just moung the whole sheet, rather than try to break it up.

Here are some pictures of what I did:

The pages are available on my Google Drive as one 7zip file called the 2018 Retrofit Kit.

Introducing the Mystic Heirloom 2019 Supplement Retrofit Kit (beta)

I ordered the 2019 Mystic Heirloom Supplement and saw that I only needed to hack 4 pages, and of those 4, two were really optional. So, I had some fun the last few days. Here’s what we have:

  1. Page 1544 – Cactus Flowers. I modified the page to allow you to mount the whole booklet.
  2. Page 1548 – Corals. Both corals are now horizontal strips
  3. Page 1562 – Military Working Dogs. The dogs stay connected
  4. Page 1568 – Spooky Silhouettes. The stamps are a block of 4 now instead of a strip.

Here are some screenshots of the pages:

All files can be downloaded from my Google Drive. The file name for this one is the 2019 Retrofit Kit. These files are considered “beta” because I don’t have all the stamps yet. Please test fit stamps and let me know if the box sizes are OK.

Mystic Heirloom Page 651-657 Hack

In following with what I did for previous 50 stamp se-tenants, I have made the page 651-657 hack. The page has a high resolution 300 DPI scan of the whole Wildflowers page in color, along with a PDF form text box that will let you fill in the location of your 50 sheet se-tenant. The back is duplicate of page 658, so you can use it as a drop in replacement for all 4 pages.

The files can be downloaded from my Google Drive here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B5nZhycYzltRa21JWXYwOFBlSGM?usp=sharing
