HI,

I'm brand-new to this forum and wanted to say HI.  I have cards in my hands and been trying to do card tricks since my age was in the single "pips."  I've always been a fan of the good ol' "Bicycle Reds."  I have a small collecting of "older" (40s/50s) decks that I got from a magic dealer years ago.  Other than that, I'm entering the hobby and trying to find my way.  I'm open to learning and growing in my understanding of the hobby and playing cards in general.    Excited to get involved.

TY.

Welcome Ty.

Whatever questions you might have you'll likely find the answers here. You will not want to miss the annual convention in October. This year it's in Erlanger and we get to tour the USPCC factory. Very special. Last years convention was my first and I was treated like an old friend by all. You will see more cards than you can take in. One word of advice. Start saving now......

Thanks for the welcome Don.  I'm more confused and overwhelmed than anything.  Looking forward to learning and growing in the hobby.

Hey TY,

Welcome to the forum! What part of Michigan do you live in? I grew up in a small, country town (between Flint and Lapeer) and graduated from Central Michigan Univ. in Mt. Pleasant. My family and I live in Indianapolis now, but we drive up to Michigan every three months or so.

Thanks, Randy

HI Randy,

Thanks for the welcome.  I'm in the Detroit area.  I went to Central as well for a bit.  Go Fire Up Chips!  We should eat an insane size meal together at Tony's one day!  Excited to be a part of the forum and get more involved.
