Image: The Collector's Guide to Playing Cards, by Mark Pickvet (Author). Publisher: Schiffer Publishing, Ltd. (March 28, 2014)National Playing Card Collectors Day
-- -- Celebrates the collection of one of the oldest forms of portable art (circa the 1200s). Playing cards are literal galleries of art and inspiration, showing and communicating an artist's intentions to the public while also archiving the cultural values of their time. Collecting these art pieces allows us to be curators of our own galleries to display. These collections can be seen as extensions of the collector; this day is a time to celebrate and share their collections with the public.

Read: The Collector's Guide to Playing Cards
-- For novices and longtime card collectors alike, here are two books in one: a thorough price guide featuring common to extremely rare items, and a well-researched history of playing cards and games. A wealth of mythology, literature, and history is found in playing cards. In addition to classic decks normally seen in the United States, find artistically designed European suits with, for example, Shakespearean characters on face cards. Read about the origins of some of the most popular card games, board games, and the card decks themselves.

-- Every detail has been taken care of to make this deck a realistic wood deck made of the best Bicycle paper stock printed by the United States Playing Card Company. The WOOD DECK is a reinterpretation of the classic Bicycle RIDER BACK deck using a set of textures to give the cards a realistic wooden aspect. Bicycle stock and Magic (air-cushion) finish.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up - and re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and Bella, the cat.
