Mint, sealed political deck from Jerningham Press of North Adelaide, Australia, designed by William Balmain and drawn by Pickering, featuring his political cartoons. Pickering is an Australian political cartoonist who has won four Walkley Awards, which I understand to be comparable in Australia to Pulitzers here in the United States. The cards are mint and sealed, but the faces of some of them can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #12769).
I believe that the deck has at least 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm, and come in the original box.
As noted the cards are mint and sealed. The box has some very light foxing, but is otherwise in excellent condition.
Thanks for visiting.
