Completely charming Christmas deck made in 1980 by ASS for Waddingtons Playing Card Company. The cards are accompanied by a white business card stating that, “This Collector’s Edition has been designed to Celebrate the Festive Season of 1980.” It wishes the recipient of the deck a “Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year,” and I infer that the deck was not sold commercially, but rather distributed to Waddingtons customers and friends.
The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus an extra card with bridge scoring. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and come in a plastic box that is not original.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. FWIW, the plastic box is in very good condition.
Thanks for visiting.
