Two mint, sealed double decks of railroad cards made c.1977 by the United States Playing Card Company, one of them its Congress brand and one its Liberty brand. The backs of the two double decks are very similar, but I do not believe that they are identical. It appears that the gold of the logo and borders of the Congress cards is more subdued, less pronounced, and that the concentric borders of the Congress cards are thinner and closer to one another. Each double deck is available separately for $15, and both double decks are for sale for $30.
Presumably each deck of each double deck has at least 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. I also assume that the cards are standard Congress and Liberty cards, respectively. The cards of both double decks are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and each double deck comes in its original box.
The cards of all decks are still mint and sealed, and the boxes are “as new.”
THE CHARGE FOR DOMESTIC SHIPPING BELOW ASSUMES THAT BOTH DOUBLE DECKS ARE PURCHASED. IF 1 DOUBLE DECK IS PURCHASED, SHIPPING WILL BE LESS.
