Mint, sealed double deck of Union Pacific Railroad’s centennial playing cards, made c.1969 by United States Playing Card Co. The backs of one of the decks is commonly known as the “Driving of the Spike” cards, a name it is given on the box; the backs of the other are given the name “Yellow Tones” in Phil Bollhagen’s book.

I believe that each deck has at least 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. I note through the cellophane that the Jokers are Union Railroad jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm and come in the original box, with embossing on the lid that announces that these are centennial decks.

As noted, the cards are mint and sealed; the box is in excellent condition.

Reference: Bollhagen, The Great Book of Railroad Playing Cards, p.148, UPRR-20 and -21.

Thanks for visiting.
