Mint, sealed deck of cards made by Brown & Bigelow, c.1969, based upon the hugely popular 1960s television show, "Laugh-in." The court cards are the faces of Rowan and Martin, the stars of the show, and the Aces and pip cards all have "one liners" from the show ("Sock it to `em," etc.). One Joker depicts the "Fickle Finger of Fate" and the other depicts the character (Arte Johnson, I think) that rode a tricycle in a yellow raincoat. The first 2 pictures are of the actual deck for sale; the remaining pictures of the faces of the cards are of a deck previously sold in this shop.
The deck has 52 cards, plus the 2 Jokers noted. The cards are bridge size and come in the original box.
As noted, the cards and box are mint and sealed. These cards are great fun, and a must for fans of the show.
