Smile Tarot of Prague - 3rd Standard Edition


Mine arrived yesterday - YEAH!

I'm basically a newbie at tarot with a modest collection.

So, should I keep it protected and unused OR use it as a workhorse?

Any suggestions/opinions?

Thanks!

What s the point of buying it if you aren't going to take it out and love it ? It isn't even fragile. I do have ONE deck where I draw cards using another deck and then pick out the ones I got - but that is ONLY because it is too fragile to shuffle.

Use the deck. In fact, use ALL your decks. It would be a pity to be miserly about something that could bring you such joy and fulfillment.

I'm always puzzled when people ask this. Why would you not use it? Are you hoping it will be an 'investment' and you'll be able to sell it for a lot more in years to come? Predicting the decks that *may* be worth money in the future is notoriously difficult....

You've paid for it, so use it and more importantly, ENJOY it!

Thanks journeyinghome. I will use it and love it. I wasn't worried about the investment, I was worried about the metallic getting messed up from too much use, but if something happens to it, so be it. Thanks again for the advice!

Ah, I see now! Thanks for explaining I've got a 2nd ed., so no bling to worry about! But, I think it highly unlikely you'd have any problems with the metallic as Baba Studio decks are such good quality

On Sunday, I ordered a Tarot of Prague. I ordered a 3rd edition standard sized deck and I also picked up the book.

I love this deck so much. It used to be one of my favorites. Many years back, I sold several decks to help fund a piano purchase. It's the only deck I've ever deeply regretted having parted with.

It looks like Baba Store still has some in stock but I haven't gotten a shipping confirmation yet so I'm still crossing my fingers until I hear that it's officially winging its way to me.

Just read on FB that the LE of the Tarot of Prague will be available again with a wooden box, instead of the previous cardboard one. I really hope there is a chance to order the wooden box separately...
