Mint, sealed deck made by Carta Mundi c.1977 for Kodansha, Ltd., featuring the gorgeous designs of noted Japanese artist Masuo Ikeda, whose works have their own Museum in Nagano. I have elected not to break the seal of this deck, but the faces of the cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #09742).
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an extra card announcing the deck, the face of which can be seen through the cellophane. The cards are slightly small bridge size, measuring 87mm x 56mm, with gold gilt around. They are housed in a plastic box (Esveco) that is not original.
As noted, the cards are mint and sealed. FWIW, the plastic box is in very good condition.
Thanks for visiting.
