A few notes on buying Tarot decks & FAQ's (hopefully answered here):
If you are new to Tarot, I am happy to make suggestions but I'll usually recommend getting a regular Rider Waite or something similar to get started, especially if you are interested in divination. Used Rider Waite Cards by US Games are widely available on Ebay for around $10-$15 and they'll do just fine for the "newbies" amongst you.
Most of the decks I am offering here are collectors items, rare decks or cards for readers who want to expand their collection.
For those interested in both collecting and the art of divination, I highly recommend joining the Aeclectic Tarot Forum.
Membership is free - you can discuss tarot decks, connect with like minded souls from all over the world, exchange readings or join a study group.
21 Ways to Read a Tarot Card by Mary K. Greer is a fabulous book to get if you want to learn reading the cards.
Mary K. Greer's Tarot Blog is a very interesting and informative source for all things Tarot.
And - last but not least - in my personal opinion, a fantastic way to learn how to read tarot well, is The Process, an Audio Book by Dan Pelletier, co-owner of Tarotgarden and well known Tarot Reader.
With The Process, you'll learn how to read the cards, and how to place the wisdom in your life. Voiced in first person, you become Dan’s apprentice as you listen to The Process. Beginners and experienced readers alike will find fertile material for contemplation and experimentation for their own unique path of the way of the Tarot Reader.
Even long time readers swear by "The Process". The basic idea is to not only rely on books and traditional tarot interpretations, but to use your intuition and develop your own reading "style". He has many interesting and mostly non-traditional thoughts on reading tarot.
I have personally done this course about 4 times. It's a lot of fun!
As all my auctions state in the (not so little anymore) add-on note, you don't need to spend a lot of money on a reading deck, especially when you are just starting.
Do as much research as you can, no need to rush a purchase.
If a deck is meant for you, you will get it, one way or another. And I can't stress this enough !
The decks I am selling here are my "overflow". Aside from what you see here on Ebay, I own hundreds of decks - I collect tarot passionately.
You can also contact me about decks not listed here and I'll do my best to find it for you, if I can.
Please keep in mind: a rare or expensive deck won't give you better readings - if anyone else tells you any different, they're full of crap (excuse my french).
Haunted or "blessed" decks are .... well ... one of those Tarot "Myths". They are surely entertaining, but it shouldn't be a deciding factor if you buy cards for divination.
In today's Cyber -Age, buying tarot decks online has become the norm. Therefore, you should take your time to do your research to make sure that you'll be buying a deck that will make you happy.
If a deck is meant to be yours, you will find it with a little bit of patience and also a little bit of luck, of course. And sometimes, a deck will find YOU.
When choosing a deck, the images should be the deciding factor. A deck should "speak" to you, the imagery should appeal. Surely enough, at first glance to the novice, a Rider Waite might look rather boring, but it's full of surprises. Trust me on that one.

If in doubt about a purchase, ask for more photos and/or ask around in the forums mentioned above and below.
You should do this with any seller on Ebay or similar auction sites, especially if the decks have been opened.
Any reputable seller will be happy to answer questions or provide clear images (if they have a camera that works, of course - not everyone does).
If you are mainly interested in collecting and discussing Tarot Art:
The Tarot Collector's Forum is a valuable resource, as well as Adam McLean's Weblog who is a well known authority on Tarot Art, Alchemy as well as a gifted artist himself.
Please check my feedback and buy with confidence!
