Fitz and Floyd, the Dallas-based porcelain company, was founded in or about 1960. Five years earlier, in 1955, Jasper Johns painted his famous American flag painting. For sale her are playing cards made for Fitz and Floyd with backs derived from, or at least inspired by, the Jasper Johns American flag painting. The cards are housed in a custom, painted wood box that shows an “excerpt” from the Johns American flag painting and that is made to house two decks with American flag backs – a deck with white stars against a blue background and a deck with red and white stripes. According to the World Web Playing Card Museum, the cards are Nintendo cards, and I have accepted that attribution. But there is nothing on the cards to indicate the maker.

For sale here is the full deck with white stars on a blue background, and 2 Jokers from the deck with red and white stars. The full deck has 52 suited cards, plus 3 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 88mm x 57mm, and as noted, come in a painted wood box that has the same Johns-inspired designs on the lid.

The 5 Jokers are “as new.” The suited cards in the full deck are lightly used, with modest edge wear and evidence of handling. The box is in excellent condition.

Thanks for visiting.
