This is an original deck of "Kennedy Kards" - copyrighted by Humor House in 1963 before President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, and then published after his death. They are standard bridge size, 2.25 by 3.5 inches.
I personally bought this deck new. It is scarcely used, and has been kept all these years in a desk drawer. The cards are in wonderful condition, bright and clean with NO "grunge", NO soiling, NO rips or tears. There is NO age yellowing and the colors are as vivid as when they were brand new.
The box is in very slightly worn/gently used condition, with NO rips or tears and NO missing flaps, and NO fading. There is just a bit of "desk drawer grunge" on the surface, but nothing worse.
This deck is 52 cards, complete with nothing missing. There is 1 joker (a cartoon Democratic donkey!) and an "extra" card humorously -- and tragically -- referring to the public's love of their dashing, young president and wishing him well.
The face cards are terrific caricatures: Jack of Hearts and Ace of Spaces is JFK; Jackie is Queen of Hearts. Others include Bobby and Ethel; Teddy and Joan; Sargent Shriver and Peter Lawford. LBJ is Jack of Clubs.
This would be a fine addition to any Kennedy memorabilia collection!
