Mint, sealed double deck set of Fournier's wonderful "Political Twin Pack," made c.1973, published by Enric Sio, featuring the brilliant political caricatures of the famous Spanish artist and cartoonist, Alfonso Ortuno. The decks have the same joker, but otherwise have different caricatures on each card. Thus, this double deck has 104 different caricatures. These decks are mint and sealed in the wrapper, but the faces of the cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum. In my opinion these Fortuno decks are among the very best political decks ever made.
The major political figures of the mid-20th century are represented, including Stalin, Khruschev, De Gaulle, Hitler, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Churchill, Mussolini, Gandhi, etc. The cards are bridge size, measuring 88mm x 58mm, and come in the original custom box.
The decks are mint and sealed in their wrapper, but the wrapper is beginning to separate on one side.
