This truly outstanding vintage deck of cards show a train with smoke stacks and factories in the background and Uncle Sam rising above all and rolling up his sleeves. The cards are marked "Serving the Nation, Pennsylvania Railroad". The deck is complete, including one typical joker with a wonderful deco-like scene of a horse and rider jumping. The other joker is just marked "Extra Joker". There is also a small paper inspection sheet that tells you you can return the cards if they are found defective to Brown & Bigelow, Saint Paul, Minnesota. The back of the paper gives the rules for gin rummy for two.
The cards come in a box marked "Pennsylvania Railroad" and includes their logo. There is a one-cent tax stamp that was broken when the box was opened. Both box and cards are in very good condition. There is some slight yellowing to the joker and Ace of Spades, but the cards appear to be in virtually unused condition. No damage, creasing, chipping or any other defects. What a delightful addition to your Railroad, Uncle Sam, or Playing Card collection this deck will be. It is a real find!
