Mint, sealed double deck of “Bridepoint” playing cards, made by Arrco Playing Card Co. and published by Bridgepoint Playing Card Co., c.1945. These cards are a bridge bidding aid, with point counts noted on the Aces, Kings, Queens and Jacks.
Because the decks are sealed, I am not sure whether they have Jokers. Through the cellophane, the face of the Ace of Spades is visible and it does have North, South, East, and West designations. The cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 58mm, and they are in the original box.
As noted, the cards are sealed, although the wrapper on the set with the black triangle backs is broken. The box is in excellent condition, although there is an abrasion to one of the sample cards and a stain to the sample cards where it appears there was once some tape.
