eBay has been good to me

I have managed to acquire Scott Minuteman supplements from 2000 through 2006 for $8.00 or less each!

So, my Heirloom hacking will most definitely end at 1999.  There are just way too many pages to redesign from 2000 on.

I bought the 2011 Minuteman supplement from my local dealer and I didn’t have to modify a single page to get the stamps to lay out the way I want them to.  The Heirloom 2011 supplement required me to modify HALF the pages.

I just don’t have the time….

Mystic hacking winding down…

As I go through the Mystic pages from 2000 on, it looks like it’s going to be next to impossible to redesign all the pages I need for the 2000s, so I think I am going to end my hack of the Heirloom at 1999 and start using another album for 2000 onward.  Right now I am leaning toward the Scott Minuteman album, since it has the descriptions I am looking for.

Sadly, the Minuteman Album is very UNHACKABLE, since the pages are bigger than 8.5″x11″.  But the layout is almost exactly what I want.  So, there is almost no hacking that I need to do.

I’ll try and post some low res comparisons so you can see what I am talking about.

Mystic Page 667 Hack – Legends of Rock and Roll Booklet

And the last one for today.

Page 667 is the Legends of Rock and Roll booklet.  Mystic’s page 667 has it broken up into individual stamps.  I like my se-tenants connected.

The page will let you mount a full strip of eight stamps, even though that means Elvis repeats on the bottom.

3 Hacks in one day, all from 1991-92

I’m mounting 1991-1992 stamps and, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why Mystic feels the need to break up a perfectly good se-tenant.  So in order to get the stamps I had mounted I needed to go hack pages.  So, here we go:

Page 627 Hack – hacked to keep the Comedian se-tenant together.

Keep them together! The Mysic Heirloom Page 1252 Hack!

And here comes another one.  Page 1252 takes the Se-tenant Lady Liberty/US Flag and separates them. I don’t believe in breaking up Se-tenants.  So, I hacked a page to get out of the problem.

If you’re using your own paper, grab the file here:

The Mystic 2011 Supplement Page 1186.6 hack

Page 1186.6 contains the 2011 Flags of Our Nations stamps.  And, Mystic wants you to split the stamps into individual stamps, which I didn’t want to do.  I prefer to mount them as two strips of 5.  So, here is the drop in replacement that will allow you to do that.

The 2011 Supplement Page 1266a Hack

So, my personal collecting style involves keeping complete sheets of stamps that have selvege art AND text.  So, when Mystic didn’t have a page for the complete Merchant Marine sheet, I made my own.
