Excellent double deck of patience cards made by ASS c.1950s, featuring wonderful non-standard courts, and a delightful Joker.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus 3 Jokers the same. The cards are accompanied by two paper inserts in German with rules for patience games; I think that one of the paper inserts is by Coeur. The cards are patience size, measuring 65mm x 44mm, and the cards and rules are housed in a plastic case with the tiger logo used by ASS during the years 1950-1955.
The cards are in very good used condition, with edge wear and light soiling throughout; the 6 Jokers are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. One of the paper inserts is in excellent condition, while the other is in no better than good condition, with folds, wrinkles and an age patina. The plastic case is in very good used condition, with light soiling in places, but otherwise without issues.
There is another set of these cards, in slightly better condition but without jokers, also for sale in this shop (T00002816).
Thanks for visiting.
