The Catalog is NOT for free

This website is not for free

We are talking now many month about how to share the cost and how to keep the catalog up to date. I have many positive reactions about the catalog and many collectors are adding their labels and trade. But there are so far only 4 collectors who help in the cost and there is still a financial gap of 520€ each year.

Keep The Catalog Up To Date

Action is required

To keep the catalog up to date is a lot of work. Some of us help in this task, because they know that a common catalog of all know banana labels is absolutly necessary. Having now more then 32,000 labels it needs such a place to maintain the huge collection area.

Gold Medals

When I started the catalog, I rented a small and cheap environment of computers. I was suprised when the catalog and the number of collectors was growing that we need a much, much more professional technical infrastructure. For more details, please read the article in the article section of this catalog.

The 1:1 Trade meets the Trade Value

The End of the 1:1 Trade

Once upon a time, in the age before the internet, I started collecting banana labels. I always thought I'm alone in the world and keept nearly no labels to trade from the bananas I've eaten. But I did.This labels are my SPECIAL TRADE labels and real gems. Now, due the internet I found many, many collectors and like to trade.

What is a Trade Value?

Trade Value

So many individual aspects and background knowledge about single labels have to be concidered to answer the question: What do I get for a 'Chiquita Challange One Leg Stand' that I just found in the supermarked in exchange? But one thing should be clear, it is quite likeley not a 'Bavea'.
