If you're counting the number of shills I've made on the CGC board, you're way low
OR we could pretend this is a board for collectors and just share our faulty anecdotal childhood memories and skip the lectures and fact checking tutorials from someone who never bought comics as a kid." "I think you could probably say 3+3=6 and someone on this board would give you grief about it, simply because it was you that said it." That's true, but the real question is, why do sooo many people feel this way? "Your skin is too thin." Ironic quote from RMA. Nice lack of self-awareness

In Great Britain in 1799 the "reversible court" playing card design was patented by Edmund Ludlow and Ann Wilcox. Reversible card faces meant that players no longer had to turn upside down cards right side up. Before this, opponents could sometimes get an idea of what was in another player's hand by watching them reverse their cards.
Taking this one step further, the four numbers in "1799" add individually to the sum of 26, and there are exactly 26 black and 26 red cards in a standard deck.
