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.)

The PayPal shopping cart system is not working on most pages. 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 via Square and PayPal, plus cash, checks and money orders.

The State of New Jersey has "requested" that we collect 6.625% sales tax from NJ residents (new reduced rate as of January 1, 2018). Sorry, it's not my idea of a good time, either.

Likely 2018 Issues: U.S.: United States Airmail (2nd stamp), John Lennon, World War I, Dragons (of course!), First Responders. You can see the announced 2018 U.S. stamp program here. Canada: Emergency Responders. Additional issues for U.S., Canada, and other countries are possible and even likely.

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."
