USPC “Nu-Dek Sextet” Playing Cards (Single Deck, Double Box), 6 Suits, Secobra Inc. Publisher, Ralph Peterson Designs, c.1965 - image 1 of 9

Excellent deck of six-suited deck cards designed in or about 1965 by Ralph E. Peterson. In addition to the four standard suits, the deck has 2 new ones: wheels and rackets. The new suits are blue, and thus the deck has 2 black suits, 2 red suits and 2 blue ones. Each suit is meant to represent a different domain of society. Spades are industry, clubs are warfare, hearts are romance, diamonds are wealth, rackets are recreation and wheels are travel. Each suit has an Ace that is unique to these cards consistent with the domain noted above, and the new suits have their own unique suit symbols.

The deck has 72 suited cards, plus 2 Jokers, plus 1 extra card describing aspects of the deck. The cards are accompanied by a paper insert with a description of how to play sextet bridge. The cards are bridge size, measuring 89mm x 58mm, and the cards and paper insert come in the original box. Please note that this listing is for a single deck in the original double deck box.

The cards are in excellent condition, “as new” or nearly so. The paper insert and box are also in excellent condition, except that there is handwriting in pencil at one corner of the lid of the box.
