Trading session in the Museum

Are you in Belgium, the Netherlands, West Germany or North of France: come to Turnhout on Saturday June 4. The National Playing Card Museum organises the Annual Day for Playing Card Collectors. Stands with hundreds of packs for sale, both old and young, jokers, backs and more. And check out the impressive museum, meet fellow collectors, have a drink in the museum pup and grab a sandwich if you are hungry. There is an interesting lecture (free!) as well. Later in the afternoon you are invited to drinks and a typical Belgian dinner on the lively Turnhout Market Square.
Come by car or train and better be on time. The event opens at 10 am. Very welcome!
The Museum is located in the Druivenstraat. Parking nearby. See you!

23 to 25 September 2022 – Madrid, Spain

IPCS joint Convention with ASESCOIN

THIS JOINT CONVENTION HAS BEEN MOVED FROM 2020 TO 2021, THEN TO 2022.

There seems to be a growing consensus that, while the several coronavirus vaccines that are or will become available will help those infected with the virus to fight and recover from it better, it is not certain that the vaccines will protect people from catching it or passing it on. Consequently, it’s possible that social distancing rules and travel restrictions will continue to be a part of our lives for longer than previously thought.

This convention includes

    • an exhibition of playing cards at the Museo de la Baraja
    • a game session featuring a typical Spanish card game
    • an auction of member’s playing cards and related items
    • a convention dinner in pleasant surroundings
    • an optional guided visit to the Palacio Real

The convention hotel is Vincci Soma, calle de Goya 79, Madrid.
