The Return of 52-Card Pick-Up

I'm reviving my old game, picking up where I left off in July 2010. What's a 7-year gap, anyways?

For those of you who don't remember, if I find a playing card, I'll capture it and add it to my virtual deck, one card at a time.

This was on my street, on August 6, 2017, near the intersection of 5th Avenue and 80th Street:
