Special Trade Labels

Special Trade Labels

We have now the SPECIAL TRADE flag if we like to talk about the compensation. Is this good or not? I do not have much feedback from you as usual. What is your opinion? Peter said that this is not the best solution and we should separate the special trade labels from the other duplicates. But what do the others think?

Balanced Trades

Balanced Trades

We trade a lot. I love the hobby to collect and trade banana labels with someone, somewhere in the world. My new stars at the sky are Эля and Татьяна from Russia. Having a letter from a country far away in my mailbox is real big fun. I'm very happy to be in contact with so many wonderful collectors.

The Catalog

We have now merged all known collections into one catalog of banana labels. Magnificent collections from our collectors Becky, Elvis, Erich, Gerri, John, Josef, Leee, Luis, Michael, Nico, Pablo, Patricio, Peter and many, many others. Here you will find now in total 31,000 different labels starting in 1913 with the AFC Tiko Kamerun.

Technical Background of the BLC

We have 31,637 labels shown by 39,420 pictures (JPG) that takes 3,07GB of data. They are assigned to 4,415 brands and are very well organized in 7,020 catalog entries ("catalog pages") to separate the sets. One important aspect is to maintain the common catalog in our group of collectors and to offer labels for exchange.

Happy Birthday Catalog

In this days our catalog of banana labels is 5 years old. It started end of 2013 in LA where we had a convention and talked about how we can continue the work of Gerri Lorenzo. In the beginning of 2014 Peter has invited me to Spain and I had a book about a content management system in my luggage about how to building up a website.
