Double deck of beautiful and famous cards made by Lion Playing Card Factory, Ltd. of Israel, featuring the very attractive designs of Ze’ev Raban. The court cards are Old Testament figures, and the Joker is Asmodai from the Book of Tobit. These cards have been made in a number of editions, and subsequent editions were printed by Piatnik and others. But I believe that the decks here for sale are from the original edition, made and published by Lion. Fournier dates these cards c.1965, and I have adopted that date as accurate.
Each deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are wide, measuring 88mm x 63mm, and they come in the original hard plastic Lion “Jacob’s Bible Playing Cards” box.
The cards and box are “as new.”
