Three Jokers

I've been shopping on Ebay again.   Thanks to Raphael Neszvecsko and Hava Getz images and Henrietta Dancik, I have expanded my joker collection by another two dozen different jokers. I now have...I have no idea how many. I'm pretty sure that there are more than a thousand different jokers but I don't think that there's more than two or three thousand jokers.

Joker Playing Card Collection Videos

I happened to go to Youtube to see if there was anything about joker collecting and jackpot!!!!

 The best video a joker collection could want!!! I answered his joker video with this little one.


I think this must be the best two online videos of joker playing card collections, right?

Most jokers

Do I have the best jokers of all?

Who has more and who has less?

Am I not the winner of the joker contest?

Jokers with Masks

Iltalian Mask Playing Card Jokers
These two jokers are from a deck of cards that I bought in Tuscany Italy.

I can't remember if it was Florence or Siena.

The jokers illustrate the use of their beautiful local masks.

Playing Card Jokers Collection

 These jokers are particularly attractive. They are just a few of the odd one thousand jokers in my collection. No offers would be considered.  Thanks anyway. I will link to other collections upon request and approval!

Jokers Collected

I have learned to use my flat bed scanner with a little more dexterity so for the first time, here are some higher quality scans of my playing card jokers.  Enjoy.  There is no particular organization to them in that they are just some loose joker playing cards that are around my desk, they are not organized into albums the way that that previous entries were.  But, in another decade or so, I should be retired and have all the time that I want to get them organized!  ;->

Jokers in my office

This is the second of my appropriate-for-the-office framed joker collections. It hangs not, like the other one in my home office, but in my actual place of business.

It's an office with 36 people and many visitors. I'm amazed that nobody ever seems to comment on it or even notice it. Why?

Isn't it a little odd to have 13 (my lucky number) jokers hanging framed on wall in a formal place of business?

But this piece of evidence of my quirkiness, hides in plain view of everyone, and seems to attract no attention.  I feel like its crying out for some attention and a comment or two. So I will do the same here, more explicitly.

I know you vistors are there, I see it in the stats.  I know what keywords brought you to this blog or which links.  I'd like to know just a little more about you.  How about a comment or two with your thoughts on a joker collection? Thanks.

Here are the three framed jokers for my kids:

And the original framed jokers that has hung in my room or office since the 70s.

Joker on the Wall

Mostly, the joker collection behaves itself and sits quietly and patiently on the bookshelf.

 Twice, over the last 35 years, I have put a few jokers into a frame and then placed them on the wall.

This was the first framed collection of jokers that I created.  Two rows of eight jokers across, the columns down each side, and three featured in the middle.

I've hung this on my office walls pretty consistency since the early 80s and have received surprisingly little reaction to it. It's been on office walls in California, London, and Florida.

Wouldn't you comment on a wall hanging that featured playing card jokers?  Well then, why not comment here on the blog!
