@Eoghann... You hit the nail right on the head. I'd say there are about 30 or so I haven't displayed yet.

@Volantangel... What can I say? It came in a bundle with a bunch of other decks.

Hey there nECr0MaNCed :D
Just like to say THANKS for becoming UC Featured Collector 8-) i find it very interesting what other collector have in there collection.

Has there been a deck that you could have purchased, but decided against it and are now regretting your decision ?
When i first started collecting i had a chance of an original Blue Blood by UUSI but passed it up as i had no real knowledge about it :? ...now i`m kicking myself :cry:

I am enjoying seeing what you have posted so far and look forward to see the rest of your collection

Thanks Jock1971. I am also interested in seeing others collections. That's why your thread is one of my favorites.

As for dropping pledges, I have a couple. Sishou Beasts is the only one that comes to mind. Purely for financial reasons. Actually most of my regrets are for not getting more. I split a brick of Green Gatorbacks with another member. Of that 6 decks I gave away 2 decks ( about to give away a third) and traded one. That leaves a sealed deck for the collection and one open deck. I really love these cards for magic and wish I had more. Had I known how much I would come to like them I would have borrowed the money from my sister and gotten a gross. :D

PS I only have the blue and green Expert Back decks. There is a red that none of the Wal-marts near me ever seem to have. If anyone has a red deck to spare I'd love to trade or buy.


The last of the Bicycle/common stuff....

And now because Dazzleguts asked for them... I got these on Ebay and was shocked that I was the winning bid and final cost was $12 with shipping.


The Red deck is opened and complete. The Blue deck is sealed. The stock is the heaviest I have ever encountered and the finish is a tiny bit more slippery than linen. There is some slight warping but for a deck nearly as old as me that's not bad.

Thank you Necro! :D
Especially for showing them so completely.
I love the elegance of Arabic script.
Nice find and a good price, especially with one sealed.

I don't remember ever seeing an Egyptian deck before but those courts look exactly like the courts used by the Graphica Playing Card Company here in Canada. As far as I know those courts are original to the Graphica company, yet your deck seals say made in A.R.E (Arab Republic of Egypt).

Here, from a Graphica deck I have:

My pleasure. I too love the Arabic script.
Good call. Nearly exactly the same. The only real differences are some color variations.
I'll be adding these to the Worldwide Time Machine soon.

Great stuff! The courts are basically AARCO standards. I have seen one of their Nefertiti decks, but only after it was sold. The printer still exists, but they don't print cards any more. It was founded by a German fellow back in the 40's as I recall.

Excellent find!

@Mike.... I added the Moharem deck to the Worldwide Time Machine. First Egyptian deck! WooHoo! :ugdance: I was poking around their website and it seems they still make playing cards. Hard to tell if they restarted or never stopped as the website is hard to follow. The decks they have now even have the same No. 111 branding. On a side note they are looking for an international distributor for their cards.


Ok, More Thrift shop and odds/ends...

Made by/for Whitman(Info on this would be appreciated) Green deck is open and complete. Yellow deck is sealed
Image

Hi there nECr0MaNCed :D
The Irish tourist deck is very cool. Please don`t tell me how much you paid :lol: :lol:
The deck was first published in 1960 by C.T. Co Ltd of Dublin, and later editions were published by F.H Ltd of Dublin, The jokers (If you have them) should have the publisher on them.The box you`ve shown looks like a later edition.
Although the places in the photo`s are the same in each edition there are slight variations (different angles, different times of year, etc)
Altogether a very cool deck that i`m very jealous of :drool: :drool:

@Jock1971... I'll keep the cost to myself, although I posted it in an earlier thread when I got them so beware. :ugthink:

The cards are in excellent condition other than being warped/bowed. A porper clip would likely fix this. They look like they were rarely if ever used. Sadly, the Jokers are missing. I could of sworn they were there. I'll defer to your knowledge of these.

Sorry for the delay folks. Work has been a nightmare the last week. (I'll pay a handsome sum to anyone who can successfully clone me :ugthink: )

Some more odds and ends....

Some gifts from my former boss when he went to Tokyo. (He doesn't understands collectors. He thought I didn't like these because I wouldn't open them)

Image

Image

The Ohio deck was a gift from my current boss. The others are from my local thrift shop. All are complete and in good condition. The Mount Vernon (Bottom right) is sealed. All were 50 cents each.

Image

Image

More thrift shop goodies. All are complete and in good condition. Also 50 cents each.

Image

Image

The thrift shop goodness continues. The US of A deck on the left is sealed. The navy deck is open, complete and in fair condition.

Image

Image

Thrift shop? You bet! The Chia pet deck is sealed. The other two are open, complete and in good condition.

Image

Image

Some vintage decks from the thrift shop. The Bicycle decks are from 1964 and 65. ( date codes F and G. Long tuck flaps) The Hoyle deck has a trademark date of 1983. The maverick deck is anyone's guess. The decks are complete and in generally poor condition.

You wouldn't consider opening that chia deck to see if the courts are custom? :P

You sure get along with your bosses. Nice Hiroshige deck.
