My Collection So Far

Unread postby Adonael » Tue Jul 19, 2016 9:39 pm  

Hey guys, my name is Adonael, I'm 23, from Australia. Just want to give you a look at my collection. I started with Kickstarter cards and have mostly stuck with that so far, I'm mostly about custom courts and artwork that don't look like standard courts. I have these photos of every deck for safekeeping lol. Being in Australia, most decks to me are actually a $20-30 proposition!

That's about it until I have some more to show. Like I said, it's an expensive hobby to have here, and I'm in no position to have it lol. I have a long wish list which includes decks such as Muertos Celebration, Angelarium, Sideshow Freaks, Pocono Modern, Rarebit Copper, Third Man Records, Animal Kingdom, ChiTAG 2014, Medley's, Russian Folk Art, The Woodland, Prisma Visions and Ultimate Deck. Hopefully one day I'll be able to add them to the collection! Unfortunately I currently have no means or option to display my decks so I keep them in this antique hammered brass fire wood box, but in the future hope to build some sort of display. And yes, I do open all my decks to enjoy their contents :drool:

Hello and welcome. Nice collection you have there. I know how hard shipping to OZ is. I've shipped more than a few decks there and I always cringe when I send the quote. BTW, I really like the box you have your decks stored in.

Hi and welcome to the forum Adonael. :D
i agree with nECr0MaNCeD that your collection is very cool.
Shipping costs to anywhere nowadays is a nightmare. It`s this problem that has me cutting down on kickstarters.
I only back (what i think of) the very best nowadays, which is around 1 deck per month... if that.
Thank god for e-bay :lol: :lol:

Wow, I LOVE your consistent display photos. I think we need to get you as an editor on Portfolio52 so you can add them to the entries there! PM me if you are interested and can be trusted to be responsible. ;) Although I am very serious about that. :twisted: :D

That box you keep them in is super cool! What is the engraving on the side?

Seems to be a family feast of some sort, and on top is a horse and cart, actually I've completely filled it now and don't know what I'm going to do lol a display case is still a very long way off until we move to a bigger place :/ Also thanks for the offer, but given my late ass reply maybe that ship has sailed haha

The foil accents on the back of each Gemini Noctis card are simply wonderful, very striking. Had a tough time getting a decent photo of Golden Oath too, in person it's something else, though I still prefer the Icons, well the one I could afford anyway haha would've liked an Icons Signature too but ah well

I love your pictures and that is a great collection! Also you have a good taste!

I feel sh**ty bumping an old thread like this but I've got a question for the OP. You mentioned a while back that that on your wishlist was a Russian Folk Art deck, it wouldn't happen to be Natalia Silva's Russian folk art deck would it??

@Portcullis
It would actually, however as you'll see I now have it in my collection, just couldn't resist

Time for an update, including a couple old decks I realised the pictures were missing for. The tuck and back for Titans deck are amazing in person, still don't like the courts though, Sanctus has become one of my all time favourite decks, and favourite from Lotrek, and the other that I particularly love from this update is Sins Anima and the striking red of the cards:

Well, that answers that question ..... I only asked cos I just happen to have Seal #1/75 of the Russian deck CE

Which is the deck above Luke Wadey's Grid? That's kinda cool.

Soooooooo much Lotrek [not jealous at all]

That's the Realms blue deck, it sure is shiny. There's no way I can afford Lotrek's decks, which is why the number of projects I back keeps decreasing and ending up on the wish list lol because if it's a choice of one Lotrek or 4 others, Lotrek always wins, I'm sure you understand haha
