Chicago Playing Card Collectors, Inc., has embarked on its next 50, eventful years as a club devoted to sharing the fun and knowledge of the hobby. We currently serve more than 300 actively networking members in 38 U.S. states, and 10 other countries around the world.
Our subject matter is extensive. Out there for the hunting, as the stuff for our ever expanding albums and display cases, are endless varieties of cards. Our members' preferences include singles and/or full decks; cards from the antique and vintage to modern; from the general to a host of topical themes. There is something in the cards for every interest -- and for each, CPCC has much to offer.
Our participation is lively. We promote a friendly spirit of mutual help as our members band together for their respective collecting pursuits. Card trading is active -- by mail at anytime, or at various swap meet opportunities. Our activity includes an illustrated newsletter and other reference publications, auctions, and much more as will be outlined here.
This website is our latest venue for our members, also prospective members: people who, just like us, have found some facet of the playing cards "interesting" or "appealing." Here we also welcome friends, some old, perhaps some new. CPCC and its members additionally network with other collector groups, also historical researchers, editors, librarians, museum curators and more. To all, we hope you enjoy your visit here.
