The NATIONAL PLAYING CARDS COLLECTION DAY turns two years old. Happy birthday!
It seems like it was just yesterday and it’s been a year since I spoke about the recently inaugurated National Playing Cards Collection Day celebrated since last year every October 17th.
It is, therefore, the second year in which playing cards collectors around the world can feel closer to the community and more important than ever.
This initiative was designed by Alex Chin (Seasons Playing Cards), who has been working for years not only to make card design an art but to infect all playing cards fans with the passion of collecting, especially with another initiative, Portfolio52, which wants to become the largest collaborative playing cards database in the world.
In fact, just as he did the past year, Alex has created a very special item to commemorate the event: the Second Annual NPCCD deck. It is a really exclusive deck, created with an exquisite taste and detail, almost a work of goldsmithing. To make it an authentic and exclusive collection item, two editions have been created: Pearl and Midnight Gold. Both editions will have a special three pieces tuck case with gold metallic engraving and assembled by hand.
Pearl Edition has been created in 5 different colors (randomly assigned) with an numbered pearl sleeve.
Midnight Gold Edition will also be numbered in a Onyx sleeve and the deck will be hand-gilded in the edges.
Both are really limited (499 per edition) and will have inside the same custom deck printed by the USPCC. In addition, during the first 48 hours (until the end of October 18th) the 2 deck set will have an interesting discounted price.
100% of the profits of these decks go to help keeping Portfolio52. If you want to get one (or more) of these unique pieces, you can visit the website specially created for the occasion.
Happy collector’s day!
