Three mint, sealed decks of cards made by Grimaud, each in its original, "as new" box. Each is available for $15, and all 3 are for sale for $45. I have elected not to open the decks, but the faces of the cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM ## 04763, 01244, 00085). Each is briefly described below.
● Interesting and charming deck made by Grimaud c.1991, "54 Affiches Retro," with images on all cards that are reprints of famous historical French posters. The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm.
● Very interesting and beautiful deck made by Grimaud c.1991, "Jeu Images d'Epinal," with Jokers, Aces and court cards reprinted from "Images d'Epinal," the popular prints created by a company in Epinal, France – stencil-colored woodcuts of military subjects, Napoleonic history, storybook characters and other folk themes widely distributed throughout the 19th century. The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm.
● Completely delightful deck made by Grimaud c.1983, "les géants d'un mythe,"featuring original designs by François Poulain. The court cards are illustrations of famous movie stars, the Jokers show a film director, and the Aces feature film-related images dating to the 1980s (camera, megaphone, etc.). Similarly, the pips on the pip cards (but not the suit symbols themselves) are designs unique to these cards, taken from film related imagery. The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card announcing the deck. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm. Reference: Fournier, Playing Cards II, France 620.
