Hello everyone at theory11.com! I just signed up although I have been browsing the forum for almost a year now no. I google a lot of random playing card related things and this site comes up quite often where I find people discussing just what I was searching about. I am a playing card collector and enthusiast and have been collecting for about a year now. I acquire almost all of my cards from thrift stores and I don't discriminate hardly at all hardly at all about what goes into my collection. This may make me sort of an odd ball I suppose but that's ok with me. I mostly try to keep a look out for different jokers and different ace of spades cards and my favourites are actually the cheap-ass china made decks as these have the wide ranging variety of different cartoony jokers I love to collect. I'm also always happy to pick up a fancy pants designer deck aswell but it's not always in the budget to pick up many more than the odd deck here and there. I have a keen interest in all things playing cards (cards of all kinds in general too, trading cards, tarot cards) and am actually working on writing a book about all aspects of playing cards with chapters ranging from cardistry to cardiology to random facts and even jokes. I look forward to being part of the forum here and I sincerely hope I am accepted and not shoved into lockers or given swirlies in the toilet or atomic wedgies, I will willingly share my lunch money with any of you but honestly my mom usually packs me a bag lunch. I will gladly give my pudding cup to whoever lets me sit beside them. Thank you and good day. Err.. Night.
