I wasn't sure where to post this so excuse me if this is not the right section.

I was wondering if there was some kind of website where there is the whole list of all the decks printed by the united states playing card company. Im always looking for new kinds of decks and it is my dream to dive into a huge list with pictures. plus, sometimes I run into a magician who has some weird cards I never saw elsewhere and I can't remember their name ! ***. thanks for your help

I collect, and over time have built up a list of sites:


http://bicyclecardsfan.50.forumer.com/in......d378aecd

http://www.bicyclecardfans.com/bicycle-p......me.html#

(same as above, but it has pics of many cards. top link is forum)


http://web.archive.org/web/2006051904142......dex.html

http://www.cypressfilms.com/bicycle/

The above site is by far the most comprehensive. There are a few more I will try to find for you. If you have any further question, feels free to ask, although there are many people here who know more than I. Some of the XCM site have a lot of good info in their playing card sections.

The best resource is the Hochman Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards. You can find it here:

http://www.52plusjoker.org/dnn/Collectin......ult.aspx

It is a wonderful resource. Also, consider joining 52+Joker. If you're serious about playing cards then what you get is worth waaaay more then the membership cost. Send a message to Judy or Tom Dawson and tell them Ben Train referred you.

Hochmans is great, but not very up to date. They list every major deck, but nothing recent. It is still "the bible" though.

That's why I suggest joining 52+Joker. You get lots of new information through the site and the members.

You are correct Sir, and I plan on doing so and using your name to get in good with those people.

Happy Halloween!
