Excellent double deck set of the cards made by United States Playing Card Co., c.1935, featuring a different picture on the backs of each deck of famous child star Shirley Temple. Regrettably, as noted below, one of the decks is missing its Joker.
One of the decks has 52 suited cards, plus a special Shirley Temple Joker, plus a backed advertising card for USPC that serves as an extra joker, plus an unbacked card with auction and contract bridge scoring. The other deck has all of the same cards, except for the Shirley Temple Joker. The cards are bridge size, measuring 90mm x 58mm, with gold gilt around, and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent very lightly used condition, with virtually all gold gilt intact. The box is in fair condition, with considerable wear and tape at all 4 corners of the lid.
There is also a single deck of the Shirley Temple cards for sale in this shop, with different backs (T00003832).
