Started in 1983 with the Metropolitan Opera issue, Dragon Cards are produced for occasional U.S. issues, and sometimes those of other countries. Most are cards; the majority measure 5- by 7-inches. All are produced in limited quantities. We often make combinations (FDCs with related stamps).

Every issue still available (and many that are not) is listed somewhere on this site; This is the most-complete listing of what's available. We no longer publish a printed pricelist on a regular basis. (But we'll put together a custom list for those not on the Internet, so please tell your friends.)

Likely 2023 U.S. Dragon Cards: Lunar New Year-Rabbit, Railroad Stations, Ruth Bader Ginsberg, John Lewis, School Bus, Women's Soccer, Love/Kitten & Puppy, Red Fox. You can see the 2023 stamp program announced so far here.

Canada 2023: Canada Post has not yet announced much of its 2023 program but what we know is here.

Postage & Handling Increase in 2023: U.S. postal rates went up again in January: A basic Dragon Cards package will cost $1.74 in postage, so we will be charging $1.75 P&H ($2.00 on eBay) for all 2021 and later issues, with other changes for outside the U.S. (The price of those cardboard mailers went up, too, but we're absorbing that.)

The PayPal shopping cart system is not working on some pages, mostly the earlier ones. PayPal changed the code, and we missed the update notice. If you wish to pay using PayPal and the system doesn't work, please send email with a list of items you wish to purchase, and I will send you a PayPal invoice (which you can pay using a credit card). We also accept checks and money orders. I am working to fix the problem.

At shows, we accept credit cards, plus cash, checks, PayPal and credit cards.

The State of New Jersey has "requested" that we collect 6.625% sales tax from NJ residents. Sorry, it's not my idea of a good time, either.

Subscribe! We can customize your subscription for upcoming issues in countless ways: every commemorative, every combo, everything we produce, every left-handed hermaphrodite, you name it. What's in it for you? You're guaranteed we won't sell out of an item before you get it, because we'll have put it aside for you before it goes on sale. And sometimes we make special versions of Dragon Cards that are offered first and sometimes only to subscribers. If your shipping address is in the U.S., there won't be a charge for P&H, either. And sometimes there are discounts, too.

Dragon Cards are also offered in our new eBay Store, but the best prices are here on this site.
