Six decks of Congress 606 cards. None of the decks have Jokers and 3 of the decks do not have boxes. Two of the decks share a box, and if only one of the decks is purchased, the box will travel with the first of the 2 decks sold. Each deck is available separately for $10; all 6 are for sale for $50. Each is described briefly below with a focus on the condition of the cards.

DECKS WITHOUT A BOX:

• A deck for cat lovers that goes by the name “Tabby.” The Ace of Spades is US6h in the Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia which dates the deck c.1917. The cards are bridge size, with gold gilt around. The cards are in excellent lightly used condition, with a small, very light spot of discoloration on the 9 of Spades and with perhaps 25% of the gold gilt intact.

• A famous deck with an art deco back called “Rita.” The Ace of Spades is US6i in the Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia, and has a USPC No. that dates it to 1928. The cards are bridge size, with gold gilt around. The cards are in excellent lightly used condition, with perhaps 25% of the gold gilt intact.

• A deck with a camel and Bedouin rider called “Rita.” The Ace of Spades is US6g in the Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia that dates it to the period 1899-1922. The cards are wide, with gold gilt around. The cards are in no better than very good lightly used condition, with edge wear, very light soiling, occasional small abrasions, and almost none of the gold gilt intact. Of the 6 decks offered in this listing, the condition of this deck is the worse than the condition of the other 5.

DECKS WITH A BOX:

• A deck in its own box called “The Search” with a ship that looks like it might have sailed in 1492. The Ace of Spades is US6h in the Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia which dates the deck c.1917. The cards are bridge size, with gold gilt around. The cards are in excellent lightly used condition, perhaps 75% of the gold gilt intact.

• Two decks with lovely scenes that share a Congress 2-pack box, one called “The Garden” and one called “Forest Road.” The Ace of Spades of each deck is US6i in the Dawson/Hochman Encyclopedia, and has a USPC No. that dates the decks to 1928. The cards are bridge size, with gold gilt around. The cards are in excellent very lightly used condition, with perhaps 65% of the gold gilt intact.
