TIPS FOR CAR­ING FOR PLAY­ING CARDS

South African Garden and Home - - Collectables -

As with books, wash and dry your hands be­fore han­dling a pack of cards.

If you col­lect cards for aes­thetic pur­poses or col­lectabil­ity, don’t re­move the pack from its box. In fact, if you don’t want it to lose value, leave it safely in its plas­tic wrap­per with the seal in­tact.

Dis­play your packs out of di­rect sun­light to avoid fad­ing.

With rare new packs cost­ing hun­dreds of rands and an­tique packs from the 18th and 19th cen­turies val­ued at tens of thou­sands of rands, you may want to keep them be­hind lock and key in a dark, dry safe.
