A double deck of delightful cards made by Arrco c.1969 for Smith, Kline & French Laboratories, called “Eska-Deck,” featuring illustrations of foods with their respective calorie counts on each card, except the Aces. The foods (and calories) are the same for each suit. Thus there are 12 foods shown on the suited cards, and a 13th food on the Jokers. The Aces are special S,K&F Aces, but do not show foods.
Each deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and the two decks come in an Eska-Deck double deck hard plastic box.
The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used if at all. The box is also in excellent condition, with slight clouding and scratching, but otherwise without issues.
