Collectors’ Playing Cards for Sale

I TRY TO PUT REASONABLE PRICES ON WHAT I HAVE TO OFFER; COMPARE THEM WITH eBAY AND OTHER INTERNET SELLERS. I change the items from time to time and remove some of the unsold ones; if you saw something on an earlier list and it's no longer there, it might be worth asking whether I still have it. For purchases, please contact me by e-mail: [email protected]

Please note that POSTAGE is EXTRA.
