Grimaud “Back to the USSR” Playing Cards, Y. Nepakharev and R. Melikhov Designs, c.1995Grimaud “Back to the USSR” Playing Cards, Y. Nepakharev and R. Melikhov Designs, c.1995

Mint, sealed (cards, not box) deck of wonderful cards made by Grimaud c.1995, which appears to celebrate the Soviet Union. Made after the break-up of the USSR, the court cards depict famous persons from Soviet history (i.e., Trotsky, Khruschev, Stalin, etc.). Their names are given on the cards in English and Cyrillic, and most of the writing on the box is in Cyrillic. The artwork is apparently that of Russian artists Y. Nepakharev and R. Melikhov. While the deck for sale here is mint and sealed in its wrapper, there is an open 36-card deck for sale in this shop and the court cards and Aces can be seen there (T00005096). There is also a listing for this deck at the World Web Playing Card Museum website and the Jokers of this 52-card deck can be seen there (WWPCM #03924).

I believe that the deck has 52 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers.. The cards are bridge size, measuring 87mm x 57mm, and come in the original box.

As noted, the cards are mint and sealed. The box is “as new.”

Again, there is also a 36-card (4 x 6-K, Ace) deck of these cards for sale in this shop (T00003924).

Thanks for visiting.
