Mint, sealed of cards, poker chips and dice called, “Antique Cigar Kit – Playing Cards & Poker Set,” that I believe is published/marketed by “On A Roll! Co., Inc.,” a company in Wayland, Massachusetts. The faces of the cards are said to depict “over 100 different antique cigar art images taken from the late 19th and early 20th centuries,” and these images are apparently copyrighted to “The Briquette Collection.” I take this to mean that each card in each deck has a different cigar poster, print, ad, or label, that the faces of the cards are not the same in the two decks. The sides of the box have examples of the card faces that I have tried to capture in the photos; the backs of the two decks can be seen through the cellophane. While the cost of the set is modest, you will be pleased to know, according to the box, that these are “The Most Magnificent Cards You’ve Ever Seen.” Whether “magnificent” or not, the cards are perfect for that weekly poker game where cigar smoking is not only permitted, but welcomed.
I assume that each deck has at least 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards appear to be wide. The poker chips are plastic, and the dice are standard.
The entire set is mint and sealed.
