what can I collect?


Not all card collectors are collectors of cards! Some people begin just by collecting cards they like the look of, or cards that remind them of their childhood, or topics of special interest eg. if they own a certain dog breed or cats breed etc. 

Many of my buyers are artists who use the cards as inspiration, craft enthusiasts (decoupage, scrapbooking and the likes) or students doing projects (one did a great one on portrayal of women through the ages - all in cards!). Another artist bought ALL my jokers and did a huge artwork of them! People's creativity amazes me, I just stick them in albums! 

These special interest cards often start the collecting bug and then people go onto collecting the whole set of known cards. The following pictures are designed to show you the variety of themes people can collect. The following pictures (thumbnails) are clickable so it you want to view one larger.  Go to my picassa album if you want to see more.
