Three sets of cards with a Rock ‘N Roll music theme. THE "HEROS OF ROCK AND ROLL" DECK SHOWN IN THE FEATURED PHOTO HAS BEEN SOLD. Each is for sale separately for $10; all 3 are for sale for $30. Each is described briefly below.
• Mint, sealed double deck of Elvis Presley cards, with photographs of Elvis on each card from the Graceland archives. I believe that the cards were made by United States Playing Card Co., and that one deck features his early years while the other shows the later years. I have an open deck of the early years deck, and it has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an “Elvisology” card with a brief Elvis biography. The cards in that deck are wide, measuring 89mm x 63mm. It is likely that the cards of the second deck are the same size. As noted the box is mint and sealed.
• Mint deck of “Woodstock” cards, featuring photographs of the famous event on all cards. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are wide, measuring 90mm x 64mm, and come in the original box. The cards and box are mint; the wrapper of the deck was broken to enable the cards to be inspected and photographed for this listing.
• Rare deck made by USPC (Liberty brand) c.1987 for Colin James Hay, best known as the lead singer of the Australian band, “Men at Work,” in connection with the launch of his solo career and the album “Looking for Jack.” The cards are standard Liberty cards with Hay’s picture on the backs. The cards are bridge size, and come in the original box. The cards are “as new,” and the box has modest shelf wear.
THE AMOUNT SHOWN FOR DOMESTIC SHIPPING ASSUMES THAT ALL 4 DECKS ARE PURCHASED. IF FEWER ARE PURCHASED, DOMESTIC SHIPPING WILL BE LESS.
