Find Your Local Branch

Please see below for detailed contact information and meeting dates to find your local card collecting branch. You are welcome to visit these clubs even if you are not a member (they will usually charge a small amount to cover the tea and coffee but that’s all!). At the branches you will usually find a few cigarette card dealers, many like minded collectors and often a small auction with great cards at amazing prices. Even if you aren’t going to buy cigarette cards there are always other types of cards on sale and you’re sure to learn so much more about the hobby just by talking to some of our members.
