Synopsis: Playing cards have been around a thousand years or more and are infinite in their variety. This makes 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.
Volume I presents examples of different decks in the categories of Advertising, Humor, Patience, Pinup, and Transportation.
Volume II presents examples of different decks in the categories of Standard and Souvenir.
Volume III presents examples of different decks categorized as Non-Standard.
About the Author: Harry Wastrack is a life-long card player and an avid collector of old and unusual decks of playing cards. Retired from a career in the Federal Government, he now spends much of his time writing and organizing card tournaments. He is a regular contributor to Clear the Decks, the quarterly official newsletter of 52 Plus Joker, the American Antique Deck Collectors Club.
Mr. Wastrack is also the author of The Essential Hand & Foot about a highly addictive new version of Canasta called, surprisingly enough, Hand & Foot.
