Wonderful deck made by Nintendo for Brother Industries, the large Japanese electronics and electrical equipment company. The World Web Playing Card Museum dates the deck c.1965, while Fournier dates the deck to 1978. I have adopted the later date, but note the disagreement. It features attractive and colorful illustrations on the court cards of persons engaged in sports or music entertainment. The Jokers are unique to this deck, and the Ace of Spades is one that I have not seen on Nintendo cards before.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 58mm. They come in a hard plastic box.
The cards are in excellent condition, except that there is one card with an abrasion on the back (separately pictured); they have been viewed, but I doubt that they have ever been shuffled. The box and sleeve are also in excellent condition.
