A Card Scene Hallowe`en
Lets start with a flashback, to the cover of our January February 2019 magazine which is just perfect for Frankenstein Friday.
Well we had such fun at the recent un-conventional weekend that we thought we would make our presence known by rattling some bones at this one too.
Like the Card-World, our website is open for all to wander, but our printed magazine is only available by subscription.
And this is the perfect time to join us, because our next magazine will be shaking off 2020 and welcoming the start of a brand new year.
Our current edition, shown here, covers October - December 2020 and its issue number 36
Can it really be all that many issues ago that we decided to throw our caution to the wind and accept the generous offer to sit in the owner`s chair of the former “Card Times”, a publication that I am sure lots of our readers and maybe even this weekend`s visitors still remember with fondness?
We are delighted to say that we kept much of its newsy, friendly, and accessible style, but we also added in a cornucopia of other collectables, exciting ephemera and amazing art, all in order to enthrall and captivate the broad horizons of today’s collectors; to give them humour, but also time for reflection.
This issue has a scoop on the roots of Vincent Van Gogh, a reflection of the musical magic and rock rebellion of the 1960s, an ice cream tribute to our sadly lost summer, and an amazing historical journey on The Mayflower. To name but a few
Then there is, as usual, lots of card news, themed galleries, and classified adverts. Plus reports from recent and forthcoming auctions, and the few fairs and meetings that managed to make a brief re-appearance before we again had to lock down.
You can see all our former covers at :
Back issues are available of many, but not all - as some issues have completely sold out.
The rest of our website is equally worth viewing, as you will find sample pages from our past issues, an interesting blog, some curious cards, and a selection of modern limited edition cards covering film, music, and sport.
Some of these cards are also still available to purchase at
