Excellent set of the cards made by United States Playing Card Co., c.1936, featuring a picture on the backs of famous child star Shirley Temple.
The deck has 52 cards, including a special Shirley Temple Ace of Spades, plus 1 special Shirley Temple Joker, plus a backed advertising card for USPC that serves as an extra joker. The cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 58mm.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The box is in very good condition, structurally sound and reasonably clean, but with wear, especially at the front edge of the top flap.
There is also a double deck of these cards for sale in this shop (T00001635) with different backs.
