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 remaining 2016 National Parks single — $1.00

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.)

Price Increase: Sorry, folks, after 37 years, it's time. The base price for a first-class issue with the black-and-white pictorial postmark is now $3.00, up from $2.50. (The base price with a Digital Color Postmark is now $4.00, up from $3.50.) This applies to 2020 issues and forward. We are not raising prices for most earlier issues.

Back in 1983, a first-class stamp was 20¢. Today, it's 55¢ — a 175% increase! Other costs have also gone up, although not as much.

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 e-mail 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 money orders.

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.

Likely 2020 Issues: U.S.: Mayflower, Hanukkah. You can see the 2020 U.S. stamp program here.

Canada: Nothing further planned. You can see the 2020 Canadian stamp program here.

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 on eBay and Delcampe, but the best prices are here on this site. The seller name on eBay and Delcampe is "LloydStamps."

Solar Eclipse Dragon Cards took first and second place in the Color (Commercially) Printed Art category of the American First Day Cover's 2017 Cachetmakers Contest. One of them is still available for sale.
