Double Deck USPC "Penn Central" Railroad Playing Cards, Merger of Pennsylvania Railroad and New York Central Railroad, c.1969

Mint, sealed (cards not box) double deck of cards made by United States Playing Cards Co. c. 1969, issued upon the merger in 1969 of Pennsylvania Railroad and New York Central Railroad to become Penn Central Transportation Company.

I have elected not to open these decks. I assume that each deck has at least 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The Joker that shows through the wrapper of each deck is the USPC “American Beauty” joker, first used by American Bank Note, then used by Russell Playing Card Co. after its acquisition of ABN, and then used by USPC after Russell entered the USPC fold in or about 1929. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and come in a hard plastic box that may (or may not) be original.

As noted, the cards mint and sealed. The hard plastic box is in very good condition, without cracks, chips or structural damage, but slightly clouded in places with a couple of light scratches.
