    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.)

    Dragon Cards on the road! We will have a double booth at the Cachetmakers Bourse of Great American Stamp Show in Hartford, CT, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, August 17. The show runs August 15-18, and admission is free. Click here for more informaton on the show.

    Upcoming Issues: From the U.S., Hank Aaron, First Continental Congress ("1774" in the issue title is superfluous because the only First Continental Congress was held in 1774), and Hanukkah. No, neither of the multi-stamp GASS issues in planned at this point. We have given up such issues for lent (as in, money would have to be lent us to afford to keep doing these ... issues.

    From Canada, Hanukkah and we look forward to learning the exact subjects of "Great Canadians" and "Pop Culture Icons" are.

    We have discovered that the PayPal system may charge you twice for P&H. We're working to fix that, and meanwhile, we will refund any excess fees.

    The PayPal shopping cart system is not working at all on some pages. 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 problems ... manually.

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

    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 eBay Store, but the best prices are here on this site.
