I don't post here as often as I should, but here's a package I received today.

I'd ordered from JP Playing Cards but hadn't realised there was a UC promotion. I mentioned this and Paul extremely generously sent out a completely separate package for me!

Some very nice surprises here! :)

They were easily available on ebay from pokerstud52 and others if I remember . The V2 limited is still there for $9. The V1 is now hard to find. JP playing cards had some for a while but now sold out

Kind of cut back lately after re-assessing my collecting habits but here's a few random deck acquired in the past months overseas including a rare old Bee deck from China

I got a couple of Cartamundi made decks yesterday, oddly both #3 - one of Dr Immy Smith's Cryptic (moth camouflaged) series of 1000 and #3 / 20 of their prototype red foil back Ruby deck I won:

2016-11-06 09.28.09.jpg

I guess that's 2 of 30, eh? I didn't look closely until I uploaded it.


2016-11-06 09.30.46.jpg


Also a shot of both her business card (back) and a roughly 4" × 6" (whatever that works out to in metric) print of the AoS.

I also have #4 of Cryptic, one to play and a pair of uncuts on the way. _VERY_ nice deck! They are available from her Etsy webtore for 15# (GBP) + shipping.

Picked up a Glamor Nugget Collectors Box and Limited Gold Foil Black deck this past week to complete my set :D

I'm not sure why it has Mr Wang on it (maybe he's the creator) and though it does detract from it a little, overall it is still a nice box and the decks fit in the slots perfectly. Not that you would store other decks in the box, but it seems that only decks made by the Taiwan printer (used by EPCC, LPCC and many more, including the Glamor Nugget creator I suspect) fit in the slots and all USPCC decks don't as their tucks are slightly taller.

Technically not cards, but these four Joker prints from Dr Immy Smith's "Crypyic" deck are truly nice, and if you didn't see this deck funding on KS, you should check it out!

56 fully custom (100% including art on all 36 pip cards) is really exceptional! A unique perspective on the deck, frankly.

I haven't opened the uncuts yet, but I will take pix of signed #1 of those soon, also. Just truly done well...

With apologies for any pic quality issues, herewith my first contribution to this thread which has been so wonderful to me -- giving a little back...

The Wild Reign decks from Gregor Klingman's K/S (along with a cool tee I just could not resist) -- I didn't open the Crimson edition deck.

Then the Museum of Osteology Deck, previously seen here and the companion Animals Unveiled deck I think not shown before. (Both can be currently gotten at skullsunlimited.com, with free shipping for only a couple of more days...)

Christmas Edition:

Rather than start a new thread I thought I would add to this one buy showing the decks I got for Christmas. It was a pretty good haul. Everybody loves the fact that I collect cards since it makes it easy to buy for me. And I love getting them so everybody wins. Here is the breakdown:

Image

Top row from left: Bicycle Autocycle- we don't have a Target where I live so when I was out of town I hit one and scored these. Now I just have to find a Walmart. American Frontier- found the box set at Filson.com for a steal.

Second row: Royal Pulp, Doomsday, Imperial- I won the Imperial book in last years DOTY contest, and Randy Butterfield gave me an Imperial Gold deck. I wanted this one to complete the set (complete enough for me, that is). Superior Silver Arrow.

Last two of second and bottom row: All 8 of the Trace series. I didn't know these existed until recently. Say what you want but I really like these variations and recolors of the basic rider backs so I was very excited about these and very happy to get them for Christmas.

What did Santa bring the rest of you?

I got this deck yestarday from Spain

I know that it is a 1984 reprint of a deck from 1819. The deck is poker size. The name given is Cartes Recratives and it says it was reprinted by Vito Arienti for Edizioni del Sollento in some occasion for International Playing Card Society in Paris 19.10.1984 - 21.10.1984. The deck has 32 cards + 2 extra cards. The spot cards are done in transformation style. I have one for myself and one that I am giving away in the decks of the year contest. And Jock/Jase, now is the time for you to ride here and tell us something more about this deck :D

I dream of a world where wars are fought only by having dance offs. I also dream that a Finnish playing card designer would exist. The former seems more likely to happend.

I'm a huge fan of one piece, the Grand Tesoro deck was a promo deck given out at the premiere of the One Piece movie.
