I have noticed certain websites seem to be producing an insane amount of different styled playing cards. I also noticed people seem to be collecting them.
I don't understand the inherent value of these cards. Other than being a first edition of a specified run is there anything that makes them valuable? They are not being produced by a specific magician and they don't hold any special attachment to to a magician ....right? If these web sites who produce these cards close business and loose their "fan base" then aren't these cards going to loose value?
I understand people collect certain magical items like first edition or autographed books. I just don't understand why people are collecting these cards.
