Superb deck of the terrific "Fact and Fancy" cards published c.1961 by Chicago Playing Card Collectors, Inc. on the occasion of its 10th anniversary. The deck features the delightful original designs of Dick Martin. Each card depicts a famous deck or card player from the past, and yet the cards are full of good humor, not severe and serious, even as they pay homage to the past. The deck was published in a limited edition of 600, of which this is #258. The cards are accompanied by a booklet describing the historical decks and players portrayed.

The deck has 52 cards, plus 1 Joker, plus and extra card announcing the deck. As noted, the cards are accompanied by a booklet. The cards are large with square corners, measuring 95mm x 65mm, and come in the original wrapper.

The cards and booklet are all "as new." The wrapper has the very slightest soiling and is developing a slight tear at one of the corners of the folds.
