Eight decks of airline playing cards. Each is available separately for $5; all 8 are for sale for $30. Each is described briefly below.

• Mint, sealed deck of cards made by United States Playing Card Company for Eastern Airlines. I assume that the deck has 52 cards plus at least 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, and come in the original box. As noted, the cards and box are mint and sealed.

• Excellent set of cards, maker unknown, made for Braathens SAFE, the Norwegian airline. I believe that it dates prior to 1997, when Braathens no longer operated as “SAFE.” The cards are bridge size, and the Aces and pip cards have photographs of the planes in the Braaethens fleet. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus a card listing the planes shown on the pip cards, and a bridge scoring card. The Jokers are not familiar to me. The cards and box are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so.

• Excellent set of cards made in China for Pan Am, with Bailey’s Irish Cream advertising on the box. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm, and come in the original box. The cards and box are in excellent condition, but have been handled and show minor use and wear.

• Mint set of cards made in Taiwan for United Airlines. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are small bridge size, measuring 85mm x 56mm and come in the original box. As noted, the cards are mint; the box is “as new.”

• Excellent set of cards made by Western – its Whitman brand – for TWA. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 standard Whitman Jokers. The cards are bridge size, and come in the original box. The cards and box are “as new.”

• Excellent set of the TWA “Nu Vue” cards made by Brown & Bigelow, and featuring its special elongated “Nu Vue” designs. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 1 Joker only. The cards are bridge size, and come in the original box. The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or very nearly so. The box is in very good condition, reasonably clean, but with wear and the remnants of some tape.

• Excellent set of cards made by Arrco for Delta Air Lines. The deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers. The cards are bridge size, and come in the original box. The cards are “as new,” and the box is in excellent condition.

• Excellent set of cards made by Hoyle (of Brown & Bigelow) for Delta Airlines, one of several decks made for Delta with backs depicting specific destinations. The backs of this deck show a stylized illustration of the Chicago skyline. The deck has 52 suited cards, with Aces that have a photo of a Delta plane, plus 1 Joker only. The cards are in excellent condition, but the box shows minor wear.

There is another group of different airline decks for sale in this shop (T00003131).
