I wish that I knew more about these 2 “Poker Game” cards.

Each consists of a cardboard frame, with a playing card affixed (glued) on the cardboard. The playing card, in turn, is covered by an original signed illustration that is affixed (glued) on top of the playing card. The idea is that you lift up the lithograph and see the playing card. Then, if you lift up the playing card there are “Rules of the Game” that become visible. I am unwilling to attempt a photograph of anything under the poker cards, for fear of disturbing the glue, but it appears that the playing cards cover “poker strategy.”

I have to believe that these are 2 of a series of cards. Judging from the illustrations and the look of the individual playing cards, I think that these 2 cards date c.1930s. The children in the illustrations have a look that is similar to the famous Campbell kids, but the artist of those kids – Grace Drayton – does not appear to be the artist that signed the cards. Similarly, there are early Chad Valley “Snap” and other card games that also feature children with a similar look, but my guess is that these “Poker Game” cards were made in the U.S.

The cardboard frame of each card measures 174mm x 130mm. Each illustration measures 137mm x 91mm.

Each card is in excellent condition, as new or very nearly so.

Thanks for visiting.
