Two mint, sealed double decks of souvenir cards, both dating to the 1950s. The cellophane that wrapped the box of each set broke away from the box, but will travel with the cards. The cards in each set are bridge size.
The New York souvenir cards, with the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty on the backs, were made by Arrco, and these cards have gold gilt around. The set of San Francisco cards, with the Golden Gate Bridge and a cable car scene, were made by USPC; the Joker is the Russell "American Beauty" Joker, used by USPC for many years after Russell was absorbed.
The cards are mint and sealed, and the boxes are pristine.
Each double deck set is $15; both are for sale for $30.
THE PRICE QUOTED FOR DOMESTIC SHIPPING ASSUMES THAT BOTH DOUBLE DECKS ARE PURCHASED. IF ONLY ONE DOUBLE DECK IS PURCHASED, THE COST OF SHIPPING WILL BE LESS.
