Remember when politics seemed 'normal' and more exciting than scary? Well, this 1963 KENNEDY KARDS playing cards deck was made during (what now) seems like a friendlier political period.
This is a 52 card deck with one Democratic Donkey Joker and an 'intro' card. The court cards are all caricatures of Kennedy family related folks, including Jack, Ted, Bobby, father Joe, Jacqueline, Ethel, Rose, Peter Lawford, Lyndon Johnson and others who were part of Camelot.
These cards were made by Humor House, Inc. 1963, PRIOR to President Kennedy's assassination but weren't published till after his death.
The cards are standard deck size, measuring 2 1/4 by 3 1/2 inches. They come in the original box. The box and the cards are age-yellowed and show normal signs of use. The box has worn edges and some discoloration but is overall in good condition. The cards are still good and displayable and playable. Jack is King. Price includes free domestic shipping.
