Collecting playing cards can be a very rewarding hobby. There is the excitement of the hunt for new decks, whether through collectors' meetings, internet sales or at shows and flea markets where every new table may unfold the unexpected treasure. Even better, there is the enjoyment of fellow collectors, some of the most interesting people in the world!Playing cards have been around a thousand years or more and are infinite in their variety. This makes individual playing cards and complete decks rich in history and every bit as collectible as coins and postage stamps.The Price Guide for Collectible Playing Cards is intended to be a basic resource for collectors of playing cards and decks of playing cards and to give at least some idea of what different decks of cards may be worth among other collectors.
Some advice for both buyers and sellers. “advice to buyers .... if you see a deck that you really want for your collection and you have an opportunity to buy it, and the price seems higher than the listed value, remember you may never find another .... and if you do, it will probably be for more. Even if you overpay slightly, it will not be long before the value will surpass the purchase price
The demand for old and rare playing cards far exceeds the supply, and we have all experienced regret, on occasion, for not paying the additional dollars necessary to purchase a scarce deck that we have not had another chance to buy.The prices of standard decks are more difficult to estimate than those established for popular categories such as transformation and insert cards, souvenir and railway cards and advertising decks. Non-standard decks usually have beautiful and/or interesting courts, can be of historical significance and often appeal to more than one group of collectors. A final point. We believe that values for good decks will only rise. Scarce items only become scarcer, and as more people realize the joy of collecting playing cards and become serious collectors, the demand for old and scarce decks, especially ones in excellent or better condition, will continue to grow and drive prices upward!Posted with MobileFroo | Froo Cross Sell, Free Cross Sell, Cross promote, Marketing, listing Apps, Apps, ApplicationFroo | Froo Cross Sell, Free Cross Sell, Cross promote, Marketing, listing Apps, Apps, Application
