BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

Digital Members receive their Magazine and Monographs by .pdf from a Members’ download area – you will be advised when a new issue is available.

Quarterly A4 Full Colour Magazine

The Journal is the centre piece of the Society. It includes a variety of articles and you will find something to suit your collecting interest – or write one.

Via the Members’ Area you will be able to search the database of all the research material and, through our index of all past issues, you will be able to go straight to the article. You will also be able to print the article that interests you.

Annual Conventions

We hold an annual Convention in different countries throughout Europe and North America, usually in liaison with the local playing card society and occasionally as a joint Convention. This is an additional cost but one that members find offers the rewards of friendship and lasting relationships.
These usually last three days and include Trading Sessions, an Auction and a series of Talks plus visits to local Museums usually with Playing Card exhibits. There is always a Convention Dinner arranged for Members and their guests.

Bulletin Board for posting questions

The reservoir of our members’ knowledge can be utilised by raising questions on the Members Only Bulletin Board – you will usually receive a speedy response.
The Society does not provide a valuation service.
