About Me

My name is Scott Kruse, and I am a high-school English teacher in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. I’m about a 1-hour drive from Toronto.  I’m 49 years old.  

My interest in playing cards began over 20 years ago, when I began dabbling in card magic. Naturally, I gravitated to Bicycle and Bee brands (basically all that was available in the mid-90s!) for their superior handling!

I drifted away from card magic somewhat as other goals and interests took over. A few years ago, I re-discovered card magic/manipulation: that’s when I became a collector!!

At first, I bought a few cool decks to add variety to my humble magic ‘performances’.  Eventually, I began collecting modern decks for their own sake.  I still believe that modern decks have the most dazzling tucks: they display beautifully!

Recently, though, I started to collect vintage and antique decks.  This is where my interest now rests - though I still back interesting modern decks on Kickstarter! I recently joined 52+J to learn more about antique collecting, and to hopefully acquire some ‘new’ antique items for my collection!  I don’t have much to trade yet, but that is changing!!

I don’t really have a ‘specialization’ yet, though I seem to gravitate towards standard American poker decks pre-1930.  I love old Bicycle and wide Congress decks - who doesn’t?  I also collect some singles, especially rare Bicycle backs and antique aces-of-spades.

Now that the school year is over, I finally have time to get active on the forums! I want to thank Steve Bowling and Lee Asher for encouraging me to join 52+J, and for welcoming me aboard!  I hope to meet Judy Dawson soon (I love your encyclopedia!!!)
