Playing Cards:Vintage Deck of American Airlines Playing Cards
Vintage Deck of American Airlines Playing Cards..
American Airlines offered the deck without charge to passengers traveling on long flights, regardless of cabin class.
The flap-top box is 9cm long x 6cm wide x 1.5cm thick. Across both sides of the box is the American Airlines logo. The backs of each card have the same logo as on the box.
The cards (8.9cm long x 5.7cm wide) are a standard 52 card deck with two jokers. The international suit indicators are used. The Ace of Spades indicates that the deck was made by the United States Playing Card Company, Cinncinatti, Ohio.
The pattern of this deck is no different from the deck offered by Wardair or SAS , suggesting that the same lithograph designs were used regardless of where any of these decks were manufactured. However, these decks differ considerably from the Swissair deck, since the games they were intended to be use for differ as well. These "standard" international decks appear to be of use in playing "Poker", "Bridge", "Rummy", and the number of "Solitare" games. The box show a lot of wear the cards are in very good condition..
PRICE: $6.99 plus $1.50 special handling charge.
