Hi,
My WW collection is housed in 8 Scott International binders - that are factory labeled Part 1 thru Part VIII.

Looks like "8 is not enough" and I'll be adding a 9th binder. My question is, did Scott print out binders that went past "part 8"?

I've gone thru eBay and 8 is as high as I've found..........

Scott International binders no longer have the Part (volume) number imprinted on them. You need to buy add-on labels ($2.99 each from Amos). This only makes sense now that they're up past 50 volumes, with most split into A and B sections. It eliminates the need to keep probably 100 different binders in stock, down to only two, regular and jumbo.

I understand the need for the new binders (w/o parts x), and I have a few. But my original question still remains.......Did Scott put out any International binders with a Part number greater than 8 / VIII ???

I have three enormous Scott International binders printed with a IX, XI, and XII on their spines. I have no binder with volume X printed on it, but they must have made one, as well. I don't know if they went beyond XII. Why not contact Scott/Amos Press and ask them? They'll know. Clearly, after some point Scott Publishing realized they couldn't keep printing volume numbers on the binders since it was becoming a problem to keep that many different volume numbered binders in stock. Somewhere after Vol XII, apparently. I would assume that they also sold more regular-sized binders with these numbers on them, as well.

Why Scott ever made binders this enormous -- larger than even the current "Jumbo" size -- I'll never know. They are virtually unusable. They hold so many pages you can barely pick them up and the pages are so tremendously curved you can barely mount stamp on them. I don't think I've ever seen one of these "Super" Jumbo binders where the spines haven't given way completely.

I do wish someone would come up with a better binder spine numbering system than those ridiculous little Scott/Amos labels using Roman numerals. What's wrong with 1, 2, 3, 4, etc? I'm looking to make my own somehow, something that looks attractive and is readable. With better volume number labels, you wouldn't need to buy numbered binders.

I'd guess the reason the higher-numbered binders are rare is that they weren't in print nearly as long as the early numbered binders were -- before Scott stopped making binders with numbers printed on them, I mean. That, combined with fewer collectors buying International albums for later decades than for earlier decades would make them harder to find. I say fewer since I've always assumed most people collect only so many volumes worth of the entire world, and they will likely concentrate on 1840-1940 first, then maybe add the 1940s or 1950s, perhaps a bit more, but they'd have to stop somewhere. How many collectors even buy the International volumes up to volume 50 or more? You'd need a warehouse to store all those volumes in, and a bottomless bank account to buy the stamps you'd need.

You'd almost need a bottomless bank account to buy just the albums.

Thanks folks, looks like I'll just extend into a plain Scotts binder for #9. I'd love to replace all the binders but as indicated, that could be pretty costly.

I bought these years ago (back in the 80s, I think). Ended up only using Parts I and II...

Walkman82, those look really nice! I'm wanting to do something similar for my Vario-G binders. Would you mind providing us with some details on how you made them?

chris2015,

Sorry for the delay in responding, just saw your post. I read a previous post http://goscf.com/t/58114 and decided to try making labels myself. I picked up some labels (Avery 6427) and created the labels masks using PowerPoint. The colors used were RGB 91, 0, 0 (maroon); 0, 40, 0 (green); 0, 0, 128 (blue); and 0, 0, 0 (black). The lettering color is RGB 255, 204, 0. The fonts are Cambria 16 and Calibri 10. After printing the labels, I used a pencil to mark off a 60mm wide and 28mm tall rectangle and trimmed the labels to fit my Lighthouse Grande binder spaces.

Hope this helps, let me know if you have any questions.

Scott
