I recently saw these cards sell on Ebay. How much do you guys think they were worth? Is there a price guide that values them?
Thank you for the reference to this additional seller of cards. I visited the site and it is well organized and has solid descriptions. I look forward to exploring it in more depth shortly. I have been collecting cards since 1972 and until now have never seen a reference to this source, so really appreciate it.
Over the past weeks I have posted secondary used playing cards on the page of the group Collectors of Business, Trade & Calling cards.
If you have an interest in playing cards you might want to have a look.
Okay, thank you.
There are several dealers in antique playing cards. Three that I have found reliable in Europe are:
37308 Krombach, Germany/Deutschland
Mr. Darqueene is very good at answering e-mails, has English and German, not sure what other languages, and an extensive inventory of antique cards. He issues catalogs, on subscription, several a year. At the website you can search his inventory as well.
R. Somerville Playing-Cards
Place de la Mairie
F-31420 Alan, France
This firm, formerly in Scotland, has a huge inventory of contemporary regional patterns and a modest selection of antique decks. Excellent service.
43 Templars Crescent
London, N3 3QR United Kingdom
Carries inventory of playing cards of the world, and related books and ephemera. Yasha Beresiner is the proprietor of this firm, and is very knowledgeable.
Darquenne or Beresiner might suggest other sources if they do not have what you are looking for in their inventory.
Good luck locating this deck.
Hi, does anyone know where I can buy a deck of De La Rue cards like this:
Glad to help. With the right reference tools, it is fairly easy to find such items. It would be even better if you had the full deck. Something to keep an eye out for in your travels. I have over 3500 decks in my collection but hve never seen this one or a sngle card for that matter before your question and image were added to thte site.
Jeff, this card is from a 1905 deck made by Goodall (I assume the one in London) for the Canadian market. The entry in The Hochman Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards on page 270 shows the back like your illustration, and has the following description:
SCA10 Montreal & Quebec Souvenir
The colorful back of this deck again features the crests although they are somewhat larger and more ornate [than those in SCA9 by Goodall made in 1907]. The photo scenes (type F) seem slightly earlier although depicting the same scenes as SCA9.
In their price guide, a complete deck in mint condition lists for $75.00.
Hope this is helpful. Bill Gosling
