Card Gallery and Index

Yes readers you read that right, there is soon going to be an index to this site with direct links to all the cards we featured in our newsletters and our cards of the day, plus all the card codes from our reference books. It wont be completed for some time, but here is a start using just the cards of the day, so far, from the last two weeks.

I have changed the order of the caption because the way it was done before, code first, does not put the sets in alphabetical order. This new way gives you the issuer and their sets, in alphabetical order, much quicker if you do not know the code. When we get to the stage of re-titling and captioning the cards we might well shift over to this style. Oh, and by the way, there will be an explanation of what all these component parts mean in the very near future
