Excellent deck of wonderful pin-up advertising cards made by United States Playing Card Co. for Mac’s Super Gloss Co. The illustration on the backs shows a beautiful girl who thinks she is changing into a bathing suit hidden by a beach umbrella, but finds that the “super gloss” from the Mac’s polish on the car next to her gives a clear reflection of her changing. I think it is one of the best of the advertising pin-up decks – it makes a point about the product, and has a sense of humor.
The deck has 52 suited cards, with a special Mac’s Ace of Spades, and 2 special Mac’s Jokers, advertising Mac’s products. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 57mm, and come in the original box.
The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or nearly so. The box is in good condition, structurally sound but with some soiling and wear along the edges near the top.
Thanks for visiting.
