Wonderful entertainment deck made by Nintendo for “Transglobal.” I do not know what “Transglobal” company is referenced, but it is one that had a role in the movie and/or television industries in the 1960s. The pips and court cards all have pictures of movie and television stars clearly taken during that decade, including pictures of a young Ryan O’Neal, Mia Farrow, Sandra Dee and George Peppard. There are 12 pictures, repeated in all 4 suits on the 2-K cards. That is, all 2s are Mia Farrow, all Jacks are Ryan O’Neal, etc. The Aces and Jokers have a Transglobal logo.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. There is writing on the cards, but it is all in Japanese. The cards are slightly small bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm, and come in the original Ninetendo hard plastic box.
The cards are “as new,” and the box is in excellent condition with a slight scratch and minor clouding.
Thanks for visiting.
