I tend to win the singles when I not only don't have them but also really like them. Here's some updates from today on playing card joker buying...

To be frank, I sort of wish I hadn't bought this one. I only bid $4 and I won it. It just doesn't do anything for me.

Oh well, that's why I have big albums, some have to go in the back.
