Resources for Collectors

If you are just beginning a punchboard collection, you will probably want to visit a couple of sites on the Internet where you are likely to find punchboards for sale.

You can find some nice boards at Gameroom Antiques. There are usually a number of boards to choose from, and occasionally a couple of real gems. I've bought several items from Gameroom Antiques, and they've never been anything but a pleasure to deal with.

You also need to check out eBay. In case you haven't been there before, eBay is the world's largest online auction. With over 400,000 items simultaneously up for bid on a regular basis, eBay is a great place to find anything, especially punchboards. It's a free service to bidders, and there are nearly always a number of punchboards being sold by people all over the U.S. As a precaution, you might want to take note of the seller's feedback rating for any item you are thinking of bidding on. eBay allows buyers and sellers to rate each other, and a high feedback rating usually means a well-known and trusted seller.

If you like, you can try out the punchboard search language that I use to find boards on eBay. Just don't buy them all, OK?

I've also seen punchboards for sale at The Forum On-Line Antiques Mall. I've never done business with them, but you can find some of their punchboards here.
