Delightful set of cards advertising “Kubespoker” jeans and jackets. Poker Jeans GmbH is a maker of jeans and other denim wear in Vienna. It is a family business founded in 1980 by Otto Kubes, its current CEO. I assume and believe that “Kubespoker” must be a former name of the Company, or perhaps a fashion line that incorporated the Kubes name.
The set of cards here for sale consists of the Aces, Kings, Queens, Jacks and tens of each suit – in other words, a royal flush poker hand in each suit. I do not know the maker of the cards, and there is nothing to indicate. The charming, humorous designs on the faces of the cards are set in a “saloon” and appear to be inspired by U.S. “wild west” characters. I imagine the cards were part of a promotional effort, and may have been given away to purchasers of Kubespoker fashion items.
As noted there are 20 cards, 5 in each suit, with values 10 through Ace. Because they make a royal straight flush in each suit, I assume that this is a full set of the cards. The cards are large and wide, measuring 100mm x 70mm. There is no box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or nearly so.
Thanks for visiting.
