About this deal
Addenda (5 pp.): ‘The West of Middle-earth at the End of the Third Age’ (1980 Unfinished Tales map), small-scale key plus 4 sections. J.R.R . TUO ER JIN ( J.R.R. Tolkien ) . AI LUN LI . [Alan . Lee] HUI . DENG JIA WAN SHI ZHONG GE DU YUN CI YI The showcase Scrolls of Middle-earth cards make up the bulk of each Special Edition Collector Booster. These are simply reskinned cards from Tales of Middle-earth made to look like they’re printed on an aging scroll of paper. The artwork on the cards themselves are the same from the original set, with the new showcase treatment seemingly being a type of filter applied over each card. For the most part, this is what you’ll be getting from these boosters, so if you find this style, I don’t know, ugly and lazy, then you may want to consider just buying singles of the new cards available like the Brothers Hildebrandt cards or other new treatments. What Are the Poster Cards?

There are a few main differences between the original run of Collector Boosters from Tales of Middle-earth and the new Special Edition Collector Boosters. One is that you can’t find the original treatments of any Tales of Middle-earth cards in the Special Edition, only the showcase Scrolls of Middle-earth versions. Special Edition Collector Boosters are also the only place to find poster cards and Brothers Hildebrandt cards.
