Excellent double deck set of the souvenir cards sold at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York, with artist’s renderings of the various pavilions on all 52 suited cards. The cards were made by Brown & Bigelow, its Stancraft brand. The backs depict the “Unisphere,”, symbol of the Fair.
Each deck has 52 cards with the renderings noted, plus 2 standard Stancraft Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with gold gilt around. The come in the original hard plastic box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so, with all gold gilt intact. The plastic box is clouded, but otherwise without issues.
There is also a mint, sealed double deck of these cards for sale in this shop (T00002279)
