Superb double deck set of cards commemorating the 1939 New York World’s Fair, official Fair cards made by Western Playing Card Co., with the logo of the Fair on the backs.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers; the faces of the cards are standard Western faces. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, with gold gilt around, and they come in the original box with an official Fair sticker.
The cards are in excellent condition, lightly used if at all, with most of the gold gilt intact. The box is in very good, perhaps excellent, condition, quite clean given its age, with minor shelf wear and minor abrasions to the sample cards.
