I would like to re-introduce myself as a collector from Southern California, although I was East Coast most of my life. Meeting the love of my life brought me out to SoCal. I sadly lost Suzanne to cancer. Of all things a hospice nurse of many years. You can imagine how the nurse that was called from the same company to deal with her. All very sad. My card collection started with The Tiger deck about 2002-2003. I am also a magician and back then I thought the concept of designing a new card was a bit crazy. "People would think they were special cards." What turned out to what I consider the deck(s) that started all of this became the craze of the industry. Look now, a deck virtually coming out every day nearly. I have a lot I can share and willing to answer any question if I can be of help.
