Collector's Handbook by Mrs. Ruth Robinson

Unread postby Magic_Orthodoxy » Mon Mar 04, 2013 8:45 am  

If you collect Bicycle cards, you know that the company has a long history of making decks. So if you have just started out, or have been a long time collector, the more resources you have at your disposal the better. I am sure some of these have been posted here before, but just as a refresher

Bicycle has their own history here:

Jim Knapp has an exhaustive web page here:

Cypress Films has a chart on how to date a pack of Bicycle cards: ... Codes.html."

And this index here:

All are amazing resources.

I found Mrs. Robinson's book as a pdf on some lost website, so I am uploading it here. The handbook was published in 1955.
