I'm going to have to start wearing a bib when I visit your thread Jase.... :drool: :drool:

While I do love old cards they definitely take a back seat to newer decks for me... Except your collection good sir. You've posted more beautiful and interesting old decks than I ever realized existed. It makes me wish I started collecting a few decades ago.

Thanks for the kind words regarding my collection my friend :D ...i also wish i had started collecting decades ago :lol: :lol: ...you know i only started this thread because i thought i`d never get asked to be collector of the month (which started around the same time) i honestly thought the cards that i posted would be laughed at...but with the help and encouragement from a few members i plodded on..i regard UC as a forum for collectors of modern American decks, so when a member thanks me for showing them something they have never seen and likes what they see (even if its just one deck) then i`m glad i started this thread so long ago and it gives me the incentive to carry on..even though sometimes i wonder why i bother :lol: :lol: :lol:

Here`s some cards :D
First up is a modern jacobs bible deck from Lion playing card factory in Isreal.
1216.JPG

A triple deck set called "Panchatantra"from India produced by 61c and printed by Parksons graphics of Mumbai,all the decks are gilded.

And a couple of Waddingtons beautiful britain series decks..i will probably post a all waddingtons post over the weekend :ugdance: :ugdance:

I love that you keep posting decks from your expansive collection, especially the more rare ones. I also love how far along you've come as a collector and part of the community. Let's take a trip back in time to some of your first posts from Feb 2014:

Jock1971 wrote:I have only recently started collecting card decks through kickstarter and e-bay. I didn't know what i was letting myself in for. At the minute i have 12 Decks and more on the way. My favorite so far is the Bicycle Arch Angels deck by Tom lane.

You've come a VERY long way Jase. ;)
