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



Looks like they are custom. I found this pic online. (You have to scroll to the bottom)

I have been lucky to work for some good guys. I don't know much about Hiroshige but I'll look it up.

Onward and upward. Getting to the end of the Thrift Shop and odds/ends.


Some old Aviators. Tucks are in poor condition but the cards are complete and in fair condition. An Aristocrat deck used in a Casino I've never heard of from the Dollar Tree. An old Streamline deck I don't know much about in fair condition. The last deck is from a defunct drug store chain called Drug Fair. (Seems there were two chains by this name. One in NJ, also defunct and one in the northern VA/Wash DC area that these were from) The cards are complete and in decent condition.

Image

Image

A couple more Open Delta Airlines decks. Both are complete and in fair condition.

Image

Image

A sealed Congress set I just picked up off Etsy.

A couple decks I am showing in greater detail .....



You've come a long way baby! An open Virginia slims deck I grabbed from the thrift shop. The tuck is in fair condition and the cards are complete and in very good condition. Can't complain for 50 cents!

One of my best thrift shop finds. A White Palekh deck from Russia. (Extra special thanks to Dazzleguts and iDoctor for the info they provided in the Worldwide Time Machine thread about this deck) The tuck is in fair condition and the cards are in good condition and complete (minus the jokers). The pictures do not do these justice and the plain tuck doesn't prepare you for the stunning cards it holds...

That Russian deck is really cool. I've been meaning to add one or two to my collection for a while, but that's probably one of the best ones I've seen. I really like the background and variety of the number cards, reminds me a bit of the Russian Folk Art deck (ok so I sort of already have one), but in a cool retro way. Those courts are always awesome. Thrift store find? Wow, I check mine out pretty often, but usually best finds there are board games, sometimes card games. The decks are always boring and few. I suppose most people just don't think they are worth donating because in their minds they only cost a few bucks to begin with? Yet you keep finding them, so maybe the good ones just don't last in my area.

Anyhow, thanks for sharing. Some good ones in here!

@Ecnate... I love the courts and the number cards, unlike many decks, are not just an afterthought but beautiful in their own right. The best 50 cents I ever spent. It took a week to get the grin off my face. I am lucky. The thrift stores here are the size of supermarkets and the one near my house is actually two in one and nearly the size of a Wal-Mart. On an interesting side note the charities that own the thrift stores near my house got a 99 year lease and the stuck up residents and homeowners associations have been trying to get them out for years. Here's to hoping they continue to fail.

@Volantangel... I would be glad to grab you a set my friend.

I love matte tucks, but they make it impossible to take the seals off cleanly, don't they? :lol:
Fantastic decks. :)

I have been suspecting the mat under the decks to be a dota 2 mat, under valve, it must be right ? :lol: :lol:

@Eoghann... Good eye. Matte tucks do indeed make it near impossible to peel the seals. Still beautiful though.

@Volantangel... I am torn between the Blue and Black. Truth is they are all beautiful. The Red Empire will be featured later. (Thanks to a generous friend!) And that is indeed a DOTA 2 mouse pad. Since I don't own a close up pad I use this instead. I was wondering when someone would notice.

A couple recent additions before gettibg back to the KS and Premium decks....


I picked up 2 sets of these at Wal-Mart yesterday. I would have gotten a few more but that was all they had. I was surprised as they hadn't had anything new in quite awhile.

Sadly I could only manage two of these because they went on sale the day before I got paid. (Anyone with extras to trade please PM me)

Thank you. I don't have the original Tendril and I am still waiting for the new Tendrils to come in. I also don't have a personalized Deco or First Printing Set either. As for Encarded the only thing I don't have is a Display box for the LE set.

Getting close to the end now.....


My Tendril decks arrived and needless to say I was blown away.
Image

Image

Another recent arrival. Pictures cannot do these justice.
Image

Image

The first two decks I ever saw from Lorenzo. To say I was blown away is to damn with faint praise.
Image

Image

Another of my earliest sets.
Image

Image

My only UUSI set... For now.
Image

Image

These certainly do not need an introduction.... (Special thanks to the awesome friend who gave me these)
Image

Image

The only prototype decks I own... but the are special beyond words
Image

Image

Another set that needs no introduction (Thanks again to the awesome friend that gave me these)
Image

Image

Like so many others pictures do not do these justice
Image

Image

Original BBOC and Zen (Zen courtesy of the same awesome friend)
Image

Image

Ornate White edition from the incomparable Mr. Butterfield (Looking for a branded set if anyone has a set to sell or trade)
Image

Image

Obsidian Ornate pair and pack jackets
Image

Image

Oracle LE Package and signed Calaveras from the equally incomparable Chris O. (I thought it very cool that I got the same numbered LE package, 601, as the one used for the Dead on Paper website)
