2 Decks "Riker Norgesic" Advertising Playing Cards, Makers Unknown, 3M Company Publisher, c.1965-19702 Decks "Riker Norgesic" Advertising Playing Cards, Makers Unknown, 3M Company Publisher, c.1965-19702 Decks "Riker Norgesic" Advertising Playing Cards, Makers Unknown, 3M Company Publisher, c.1965-1970

Two different decks made for 3M subsidiary Riker to advertise its muscle relaxant drug called "Norgesic." Riker began to market Norgesic in 1962, but neither deck here for sale has a tax stamp. One deck is still mint and sealed in its box. An open set of these cards was previously sold in this shop, and that deck did have a 1 pack stamp. On balance, I have decided to date both decks c.1965-1970, but each could date earlier or later. I do not know who made either deck.

The first picture of this listing is of the two actual decks for sale in this listing.

The next picture shows the cards of the deck for sale in this listing from the deck that has no box. This deck with no box is available separately for $15.

The final picture shows cards of the deck that is in the sealed box, taken from an open set previously sold in this shop. The mint, sealed deck of these cards is available for $20.

Each deck has 52 cards, including 4 original Aces, plus 2 original Jokers. The cards of each deck are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm. As noted, one of the decks has the original box. One deck has no box.

The cards of both decks are mint. The deck that has no box was in a wrapper, broken for purposes of inspection and photographing for this listing.

Thanks for visiting.
