Excellent set of Handa’s wonderful pin-up cards from the early 1960s. This is the miniature size, called “Baby,” and the box has a U.S. tax stamp that was cancelled in 1963. I have dated the deck accordingly. I do not know who designed the cards.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. As noted, the cards are miniature, smaller than standard patience size, measuring 44mm x 30mm and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. One bottom side tab of the box is missing; otherwise the box is likewise “as new.”
Thanks for visiting.
