Mint, sealed (cards, not box) double deck of somewhat rare maritime cards made by Brown & Bigelow for “American Export – Isbrandtsen Lines” (“AEIL”), c.1964, featuring B&B’s recently introduced “Nu Vue” style, billed as a “Modern Eye-Saving Concept.” The backs show the AEIL logo.
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 AEIL hard plastic box.
As noted, the cards and box are mint and sealed. The box is “as new.”
