National Playing Card Collection Day is a day that is sure to get any card collector excited. It's a time to celebrate and share your carefully curated collections to the public. So how can we best celebrate this day? Here are 10 ways to participate:
Take pictures of your collections and show them off to the world! We spend all our time selecting and displaying our collections that it would be a shame to not share them. Use Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter to share your photos and videos of your collection. Be sure to post and see other collections using #CardCollectionDay
Wherever your starting point is, there's always time to start your own collection. From performance to just stumbling upon the craft, playing cards and their art display true character and create a tangible product of your relationship between the art and your collection. You can find the best decks that suit you on Portfolio52 or even start here on this site to start your saga.
As the numbers of decks you own begin to grow you'll need to manage your collections! Helpful tools like Portfolio52 can manage your entire collections at the click of a button and help manage your inventory. They can also help you find decks that you didn't even know existed!
As collectors we love to collect these little art galleries that we call playing cards. There's nothing cooler than having pocket inspiration at your fingertips! But all these cards come from somewhere - the artists! Show your support for the people that help support our collection habits by purchasing your favorite deck from your favorite companies, pledging for a deck on a great Kickstarter you enjoy, or even just sending an e-mail of appreciation thanking the artist for their works.
The world of cards is humongous and the amount of culture and history that flows through this lineage is extravagantly deep. Having been invented around 1200 AD, there is no shortage of interesting things to find. Check out your favorite card Youtube Reviewers or web archives like the World Of Playing Cards and you'll be sure to walk away a smarter collector.
We just covered learning something new but if you're a blogger or have your own media channel this is your chance to show off your expertise in the field! Share your favorite insights in the market this year or how you predict the markets will change. What are your favorite storing habits? Favorite factories? Favorite display cases?
Bonus: Join a couple playing card forums to get a discussion going.
When it comes down to it though there is nothing more fun than seeing, feeling, and trading cards in person. That's why once a year one of the longest running playing card convention comes together in a US location for the best collectors to come together to join. Designers, producers, and collectors alike all come together to share in the energy of playing card collection. This year it occurs October 20th-22nd in Schaumburg, IL.
"Card collectors and card artists now have a day to display their card galleries and share in their interests and passions with the rest of the world."
