JOKER OF THE MONTH
Started in March 2004, there will be
a new "joker of the month" added to this xpo each month.
The shown joker presents the best one that came to us in that month.
Each year we'll start with a clean sheet, but previous years will remain on xpo.

month for this section. I did buy 3 decks, but none of them were ever
issued with a joker. So I decided to browse through Miriam's collection
again and see which joker would catch my eye.
the other 30% I chose this cute girl. Maybe it was the red and yellow,
maybe the suit signs, maybe that mysterious number, but I fell for her.
There was a b/w version next to it.
Anyway, a nice one to start the year with.
it was a difficult month, especially in the week around the 11th. It's
been two years now since Miriam died, but this year the loss felt more
intense. I guess the lockdown and curfew didn't really help either to
lift the spirit.
Through the latter I got in contact with a couple, that used to have a stall at the same collectors bourses as we attended a long time ago. It was nice to renew that contact and it brought a few decks as well. To deal with on eBay, but there was one that had 2 (similar) jokers which I hadn't seen before. It's a simple souvenir deck with 52 pictures from Kenya, so not really interesting to keep. But the joker was unusual, showing a white man, dancing in traditional headwear and dress, holding a joker baton. As said..... unusual.
have decided to buy one joker each month, in which there are no interesting
jokers in the decks that I bought that month. This month there was only one
deck. It had a joker, even an interesting one, but as I chose the deck as Deck
of the Month that joker will be shown there.
had actually gone out to buy a joker, which I thought would be a nice one for
this spot here. I had bought it on the Dutch auction sit and the seller lived
nearby, so I had agreed to pick it up. But when I got there he showed me
several other albums full of jokers. I couldn't help it, but I bought a few
jokers by the Universal Playing Card Company from Japan and this one.
