I'm not sure what's more amazing, the patch itself, or the difference between the photo and scan. It's not just the neon that vanishes in the scan, though that's the most obvious and important aspect; all the texture and glint of the fabric disappears as well. I wonder what I've been missing all this time, looking at scans of patch cards...

Blue Jackets Round Closes Tonight @ 5PM PT

scarrman's Leclaire: 5 (spud; iluv; vadim; wick; onox)

I couldn't believe it myself, the scan just didn't do it justice. Taking a photo is obviously the way to go on some cards. I took the photo just last week as an experiment to see if it was any different, I rescanned trying different color and dpi settings, even adjusting tone, color, etc.

I think one of the Fowler ducks cards was also a photo - the fabric and texture just jumps vs the scan option.

I only do photo's of my cards now for the exact reasons above. Every detail get's picked up (assuming you have good light and a steady hand!). Also, you can do a direct to photobucket send with their iphone and blackberry app (when I need a quick pic to post).

Add me to the list for scarrman's card.

I too have done many photos of my cards and have noticed things look better if you get a good shot.

RE: Show Me a BETTER Patch Than This...(scarrman picks a team)
I'm calling this one early since I'm not sensing too much more movement. As always we welcome Jackets entries at any time in this process to challenge scarrman for the CBJ crown, but you're going to have to come really really strong for him to even consider relinquishing his title.

Blue Jackets Round Closed

scarrman's Leclaire: 5 (spud; iluv; vadim; wick; onox)
jaykayzee's Picard: 2 (bonnev; rice)

Congratulations (again) to scarrman for your blinding Leclaire and for the easy win. Let's find out if we have a 3-peat in the making as you pick the next team for us...

11 teams remain:

Wild
Senators
Sabres
Rangers
Lightning
Islanders
Hurricanes
Coyotes
Canucks
Bruins
Blues

RE: Show Me a BETTER Patch Than This...(scarrman picks a team)
Ok, I just arrived at the farm in Northern Saskatchewan (7 hour drive!). I am on an old farm computer, running about dial up speed - no cable, no cell service. I won't have much time the next couple of days to log on so I will pick a team I don't have any cards of - Tampa Bay Lightning (hope this gets some action - bonnev!).

I will check in to vote probably Friday night - thanks for all the votes, much appreciated. But no 3-peat.
