Happy New Year's Eve!
I had a surprise at Christmas. Unbeknownst to me, my wife Cathy had arranged for my Mum to buy me a new scanner that I had idly added to my wishlist because I was curious to see if I could get better scans of foil cards than could be delivered by my trusty old flatbed scanner.
The new scanner is an 'overhead' scanner with built in LEDs. It looks like this:
I had a couple of foil Pinnacle cards, which really are the pinnacle of unscannable cards, lingering in my folders, so I decided to have a go with the new scanner to see if I could get better images of them.
Card Number 559: Pinnacle Naturals, 1998; #192
This was the flatbed scan. It's terrible.
