Article about Joseph Pierson's Bicycle Card Collection in Country Living Magazine


Thanks to JUDY DAWSON and the late TOM DAWSON for sharing their wealth of knowledge about playing cards and for permission to use material from their excellent update to The Hochman Encyclopedia of American Playing Cards.

Thanks to STEVE BOWLING for his consultations and contributions on many matters pertaining to Bicycle cards (dates of issue, design, rarities, and others too numerous to mention).

Thanks also to ROD STARLING, MAXIME HERIAUD, and "A Collector Friend" (who wishes to remain anonymous) for sharing their collections and knowledge.
