  1. I love the graphics on these... I always come across lovely sets of playing cards at estate sales, it seems like a part of American culture that we've lost although Poker has definitely remained popular.

    My grandmother, aunts (all passed away now) and I use to play pinochle.

    When doing the research I came across a blog called Let the Finder beware and got the low down. It was the first time I have ever encountered them.
