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...

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.
