About 52 Plus Joker

52 Plus Joker Club Logo

Founded in 1985.

We specialize in facilitating the collection and trading of antique, vintage, and modern collectible playing cards, as well as other related ephemera.

Collectible playing cards can be found online, in auction houses, antique shows, flea markets, garage sales, and even in grandma’s attic. One of the best ways to exchange decks is through a premier collector club like 52 Plus Joker.

In 2018, 52 Plus Joker officially merged with the Chicago Playing Card Collectors club, making us the largest playing card collector’s association in the world.

Our diverse membership includes:

  • Antique Card Collectors
  • Vintage Card Collectors
  • Modern Card Collectors
  • Singles Collectors
  • Illustrators & Designers
  • Manufacturers
  • Producers
  • Magicians
  • Cardists
  • Playing Card Artists
  • Kickstarter Backers
  • Gamblers
  • Historians

52 Plus Joker welcomes new members, from experts to novices in playing card collecting. Join us today and become part of our vibrant community.
