Re: Collecting Playing Cards

Hear hear! The lure of shiny new things is hard to resist, and now I have a huge pile of card decks that cost too much to actually use for magic or card games, because I'm very hard on cards. But since I'm not a big-C Collector, the pile just gets in the way. *sigh*

Re: FSH New Green Acorn Special Edition Erdnase Decks by CARC

To me, the KS in these decks looks eerily like Max Maven. Since all the court cards seem to have distinct facial features, I expect they're all similar to someone, but I don't recognize anyone else in particular. (And I'm willing to admit lack of a widow's peak makes the Max image a bit iffy...) DrD

I've been buying the entire series from CARC, and urge everyone to do the same, if only to help out the organization. But frankly, these latest (No. 2 Blue) are the ugliest of the lot, IMO. By contrast, the previous red/gold acorn backs are some of the handsomest cards I've ever seen.
