Hey fellow PCFers,

In order to further promote the hobby of collecting modern, antique and vintage playing cards, 52 Plus Joker, the largest playing card collectors' society in North America, is releasing a special complimentary issue of CARD CULTURE Magazine. This issue is a compilation of popular articles from previous issues and is meant to be representative of the type of content the magazine carries on a regular basis.

52 Plus Joker President Tom Dawson says, "In my many years of experience, I can't recall any monthly magazine that has covered card collecting with this level of professionalism and enthusiasm.  It's become the industry standard, a valuable resource to the society, and to 'card culture' as a whole.  Along with our long-standing quarterly publication, Clear the Decks, it makes the low cost of membership in the club an exceptional bargain for the price."


This special issue is twenty pages long and contains six articles in total - a typical reader can finish it in under ten minutes.
Just click on the image above to download!


If the history, origins, manufacturing and collecting of playing cards interests you, then you're going to love CARD CULTURE and all the other amenities offered to members of 52 Plus Joker. For only $25 per year ($35 outside North America), the privileges of membership to this unique club include:

  • CARD CULTURE: monthly digital magazine including all current and past issues
  • CLEAR THE DECKS: all new issues of our printed quarterly
  • Access to the Ask Alexander database of all our magazine archives
  • Personal account on PlayingCardForum.com
  • Free expert appraisals of selected decks from your collection
  • Inclusion within the 52 Plus Joker club roster
  • Invitation to the Annual 52 Plus Joker Convention
  • Access to advice and information on all things playing cards

The 52 Plus Joker club is always eager to welcome new members, including collectors, artists/designers, Kickstarter project backers, magicians, cardists and anyone else with an interest in the world of playing cards, regardless of their level of experience! Read your complimentary copy of CARD CULTURE now, then join today. We invite you to forward this special issue to anyone you think would be interested in its content or the 52 Plus Joker club.

If you read the caption of the picture closely, you'll see it's from the 52 Plus Joker 2014 Club deck.  The deck is available from the Conjuring Arts Research Center shop in gold for $20 a pack and in sliver with a premium slipcover box from the club's website for $45 a pack, though members are limited in how many silver decks they can purchase.

Welcome to the Club.  Send a PM to Tom Dawson (52plusjoker is his login) and he'll get you fixed up with a 52 Plus Joker rank, allowing you access to the club's private board.

We provide instructions on the last page of the free issue - basically, when you join 52 Plus Joker (by signing up at 52plusjoker.org and paying the membership fee) you get many perks, of which CARD CULTURE Magazine is just one.

I just tested this - and you're correct.  I'll see about getting that fixed.

Thanks so much for helping me get access to the complimentary issue of Card Culture Don. 

I really enjoyed reading it.  Your own article on Expert Playing Card Company was especially well done.
