Hello all!

My name is Robert S. Lancaster, and I just joined this forum today.

I am not a magician, professional nor amateur, though I have several friends who are well-known magicians.

My closest connection to magic: I am a collector of decks of unusual playing cards, with around 2,000 decks in my collection.

Any playing card collectors among you may remember my erstwhile web site on the subject, The Bob Lancaster Gallery of Unusual Playing Cards. It was created in 1996, and came down in 2008, when AOL got rid of all their members' web sites.

Thanks a lot, AOL!

Hi RSLancastr,

I feel weird talking to a non-Magician here. I speak more freely about Magic here in the Café because I feel we're all Magicians here. I suppose in my heart of hearts I knew this wasn't always true.

I know we have a lot of collectors here and you are one as well. So welcome but please don't send other non-Magicians to this site.

I'm guessing that over time you'll develop an interest in the Magical properties of cards. Cards are not just for lookin' at.

Welcome Robert!

Speaking of card collecting, do you know Leo B. in Las Vegas? If you don't, you should.

Happy hunting,
