Telephone Card Collector online shop

With telephone card collecting long since being a mainstream hobby, it's becoming increasing hard to find and buy brand new phonecard catalogues and album sleeves to store and display these highly collectible credit card sized pieces of plastic.

As a collector returning in the summer of 2012 to continue my own collection, I was faced with trying to find the best places, people and companies in which to buy these essential items from. Having trawled the internet, spoken to dealers and others collectors, I've found what I believe to be the best available today in 2017. These items are now available for other collectors to buy directly from this website.

Please scroll down this page to view all items that are available to buy, if you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

All of the items below are brand new and have been sourced either directly from the manufacturer and/or their distributor in the UK.


World Phonecard Catalogue United Kingdom 1

Printed in 2001, the 240 page catalogue is by far the most comprehensive British Telecom (BT) optical Landis & Gyr (L&G) phone card catalogue ever produced. It also happens to be the most recent BT optical card catalogue too.

As well as covering all the public, internal and private issues, the catalogue also covers BT and L&G visiting cards, Prison cards, oil/gas rig cards, Test cards and Service cards, BT engineering trial cards, proof cards, staff leaving cards and a miscellaneous card section covering the more or really rare cards.

This catalogue is now out of print, used copies are sometimes listed on eBay, I have a strictly limited number of brand new copies available to buy. To read more about the UK 1 catalogue click here.

Key Features

‣Colour photos of each telephone card (front only)
‣Includes standard catalogue reference numbers
‣Includes quantities produced for each
‣Includes mint values - as they were in 2001
‣Some cards also feature additional notes e.g. BTP420 was withdrawn and subsequently reprinted as a 'chip' card.
‣Control numbers (first 4 digits) are often provided

ISBN: 0-9524328-1-1
