Double Deck “Soo Line” Railroad Playing Cards, Commemorative 100th Anniversary Engine No.1, c.1984Double Deck “Soo Line” Railroad Playing Cards, Commemorative 100th Anniversary Engine No.1, c.1984Double Deck “Soo Line” Railroad Playing Cards, Commemorative 100th Anniversary Engine No.1, c.1984

Mint, sealed double deck of cards, maker unknown, published in 1984 to commemorate the 100th anniversary since Engine No. 1 was built in 1884 for the Soo Line Railroad. In the same year, 1884, construction began on the 500-mile railroad route between the Twin Cities (Minneapolis / St. Paul) and Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan that would become the Soo Line route.

I have elected not to open these decks. I can see through the wrapper that each deck has an insert card with a brief history of the Soo Line, and I assume that each deck also has 52 cards and 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and the wrapped decks come in a plastic box that may be original.

The cards are mint and sealed, and the hard plastic box is “as new.”
