Collectors Playing CardsThis is a new blog for Collectors Playing Cards, a site I have been running since November 2000. Having been collecting, buying and selling playing cards, dating from the 17th century to modern times and from all round the world, for more than 30 years I have a vast collection of playing cards and related antiques and ephemera - some of which are offered for sale on my website.
The website has brought me into contact with collectors, researchers and a whole variety of interesting people. There is more about this on my profile page. I started a postal auction and printed sales lists back in the early 1980s but the internet has brought me customers from much further afield and I now sell regularly all over the globe, especially Australia and the U.S.A.
The appearance of the blog will change over the next few weeks as I get my act together and find my way around the design tools.
