Originally formed to cater to the interests of collectors of American antique playing card decks, 52 Plus Joker has long since broadened the scope of the club to include the collecting of playing cards and related items of all sorts, and from around the world! Our Mission Statement is as follows:
52 Plus Joker was formed to facilitate:
- The collection and trading of antique and collectible playing cards and related items,
- The advancement of knowledge about the history, manufacture and artistic aspect of playing cards,
- The promotion of fellowship among members with similar interests
Benefits of membership are many and the cost is very low for a well-established collectors' club.
