Please note that these joker pages are not currently being maintained. I
have not had time to maintain these pages or my collection. I am not
currently trading with anyone until I get caught up. As it is, I owe quite
a few jokers to one collector that I hope is being patient with me. The
jokers listed as duplicates have mostly been traded away and the colleciton
is probably about twice as large as what you see here. I simply have no
time or desire to do anything with the collection right now. Please enjoy
these pages, but don't ask me to trade with you. Maybe down the road some
time, things will be different.
Cards were all scanned at the same scale. So, larger cards are from jumbo decks. Smaller cards are from miniature decks. Cards are, for the most part, in excellent condition. I didn't take them out of the books they are in to scan them so the plastic covering on the pages is what looks crinkled in these pictures.
As was normal for me, I had a deck of cards in my hand. (I said this was normal for me, not that I was normal.) On the suggestion of decorating the doors, I quickly grabbed a joker and slapped it on the door. It stuck. Sean pointed out that I wasn't the only person living there and that a joker on the door clearly only stood for me. His answer to that was to go find two more jokers. All three on the door now were different.
The next day, upon arriving back at the room, there was another joker on the door. Someone had seen the three jokers and, not realizing that one stood for each of us, decided that the idea was just to decorate the door with more of them. This idea picked up. Various people started to just stick jokers on the door. I decided I liked the idea and went out in search of them for the rest of the year. Since I started it (by accident) and I was the one interested in cards all along, there was never any question that the collection was mine.
After that first year, I never really went out looking for jokers. I just always kept an eye out in case an unusual one crossed my path. Now that I actually know others collect jokers, I'm hoping to make some interesting trades and build the collection.
