Mint double deck of semi-transformation cards, called “The Deck,” featuring delightful designs on every card by famous New Yorker cartoonists William Steig (Hearts), Lee Lorenz (Clubs), Roz Chast (Diamonds), Arnie Levin (Spades), and Jack Ziegler ((Joker, backs). It is conceivable that Ink, Inc. is the maker of the cards, but my guess is that it is only the publisher. If so, there is nothing to indicate the maker.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus the 2 Ziegler Jokers. The open deck does not seem to have the extra card introducing the deck and identifying the artists, but I assume that the sealed deck does. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and come in the original “The Deck” box.
One deck is still mint and sealed in the wrapper. The other deck is out of the wrapper, but in mint condition. The box is “as new.”
