Some of you may not realise this, but The Cartophilic Society was founded in 1938, and therefore we are steaming steadily towards our centenary. Whilst we are starting to look forward to that happy event, we also need to look behind us; to take some time out to remember and to celebrate all of those collectors, writers, researchers, and dealers who we met along the way, and who helped to make today possible. This landing page is actually a doorway into that amazing past, and it is full of wonderful things and amazing characters. So please step through, by clicking on any bold headline, and enjoy your journey. And if there are things you remember that we don`t seem to, tell us at: https://www.card-world.co.uk/contact
C.S.G.B. & Card Collectors Archive
last updated January 15, 2021
this is our main archive section and tells not just of our Society, but of other clubs, and card collectors that we met along the way. You will find the story of the cards we collect on lots of other sites, but we believe this is the only place you will find the stories of the people who came together and created our hobby.

Here you will find the story of our regional branches, where local collectors used to gather together on a regular basis to chat, share stories, and swap or buy cards. We know that in the recent months these have been much missed but we hope reading of their past will keep them alive until we can meet again.

Every year since 1940, we have held an Annual General Meeting. At first, this was a chance to discuss business with all members who could travel into London. However, it soon started to include a few dealers. Nowadays it is a grand annual Card Convention with approximately 150 dealers, though, sadly, this was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic. There is also a link to a gallery of the commemorative cards we have issued at each event

this section tells of our adventures in print. It is currently under construction, and though it already includes the start of a “Card-World” cover gallery, the intention is to eventually have a list of all our magazines, and sample images of past issues.
