Two mint sealed decks celebrating Texas and its history. The first 2 pictures show the faces of the cards and they are from open decks previously sold in this shop; the final 2 pictures are the actual decks for sale in this listing. Each deck is available separately for $15; both are for sale for $25. They are briefly described below:
* A mint, sealed deck of poker size cards, made by USPCC and published by E&S Co., honoring the Presidency of LBJ, with cards that give facts about the state of Texas. The deck has 52 cards, plus a Joker, plus 2 additional event cards. The cards have square corners
* A mint, sealed deck of bridge size cards, made by Alief Products Co., originally published to celebrate the sesquicentennial of the State of Texas, c.1986. However, this deck is a later edition (references to the sesquicentennial on the box have been removed), and the Jack of Spades references the election of George W. Bush to the Presidency in 2000. Except for this card, I believe that the other cards are the same as those that appeared in the 1986 sesquicentennial deck. There are 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The faces of the 52 cards each contain an illustration of an aspect of Texas life by Texas artist S. Wayne Cook. The 2 Jokers depict the original designs of the 6 flags that have flown over the State of Texas, and below them the Lone Star Flag that has flown since 1839.
As noted, both decks are mint and sealed.
Each deck is available separately for $15.
THE PRICE SHOWN FOR DOMESTIC SHIPPING ASSUMES THAT BOTH DECKS ARE PURCHASED. THE COST OF SHIPPING WILL BE LESS IF ONLY ONE IS PURCHASED.
