USPCC: Circus No.47 Playing Cards

01 Apr

Circus No.47 Playing Cards printed by the United States Playing Card Company. First issued in 1896. This is a vintage deck. I hope USPCC will reprint it.



This blog thanks Rod Starling (an author of “The Art and Pleasures of Playing Cards”) from the bottom of its soft heart for the pictures of these playing cards and some information about them.

    Very COOL! I’m not, like, a particularly big circus fanatic, (though I love Georges Seurat’s Circus painting), but, regardless, these are beautiful, colourful and a tad bit cheery to boot.
