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.

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.

Feedback to our Catalog

In this article we collect some quotes and reactions we have found at FB or WhatsApp. This positiv words help us in building up the catalog. We enjoy this feedback very much of course. I want to highlight, that in the mean time, the catalog is updated by many, many collectors and what we build up here, is the result of our common work.

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.
