Mint, sealed double deck of railroad cards made by Brown & Bigelow for Great Northern Railway c.1962, featuring backs depicting Native Americans, namely, “Chief Middle Rider” and a woman simple called “Buckskin Pinto Woman.” Judging from the entry for these decks at the World Web Playing Card Museum, these decks had a special Great Northern Joker and Ace of Spades, and a Great Northern “watermark” type of imprint on the pip cards (WWPCM #00940/03). Bollhagen also shows a special Ace and Joker for the Chief Middle Rider deck.
I assume that each deck has at least 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and come in the original packaging.
As noted, the cards are mint and sealed.
