Playing cards





 
 
 
Whether it's the famous Manila game imagined by Marcel Pagnol starring his character Marius, or the prestigious poker games played by James Bond, playing cards are deeply rooted in popular culture.
They first appeared in the 7th century in China and arrived in Europe in the 14th century, probably through exchanges with Mongol merchants or Arab civilization. They were used for games and entertainment and also contributed to conveying ideological and political images during certain periods. The jack was worth more than the king during the French Revolution: a very strong symbol indeed.

Nowadays, cards are only used for games, magic and … collecting. From ancient 32 paper card decks, to today's 54-card plasticized decks and including decks stamped with historical characters… there are literally thousands of different decks available, and you can find many of them on Delcampe.

Regardless if you're a lover of playing cards or not, discover the cards for sale on Delcampe !

The collectors' Tour de France
is on Delcampe.net!

For this year's Tour de France your Delcampe site is featuring a special sale of collectibles related to cycling and this prestigious race.

The Collector Center, a Delcampe subsidiary, will be selling a very unique collection: correspondence, consisting of 15 postcards, written by François Faber to his friend Adèle Hiernaux. The cards are from several different towns featured in the Tour de France stages. The cyclist wrote a brief daily comment on each one. 

Several of the cards are signed both by François Faber and other famous cyclists of the time: Emile Engel, Jean Alavoine, Gustave Garrigou and André Trousselier. This is a unique opportunity to experience the race the way François Faber did in 1909.

The collection is from a family archive.

No need to introduce François Faber, "The Giant of Colombes". Born 26 January 1887, he was the first foreign cyclist to win the Tour de France in 1909. He also won five stages in a row, a record that still stands today. And he won several other prestigious bicycle races, notably, the famous Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Lombardy.

He died in the battle of Artois in 1915. His body was never found.

Several places in Luxembourg are named after him and the "Grand Prix François Faber" race is run in his honour.

 

The collection will be on sale from July 1 - 28, 2015 at our subsidiary Collector Center's store.
We are also taking advantage of this opportunity to feature all collectibles related to the Tour de France and cycling. To expand our offer, we contacted several sellers and asked them to join us for the event by filling their stores.
