Vintage Ad Friday – Playing Cards

Courtesy of VintageAdBrowser

I learned how to play Solitaire as a little girl. I remember watching my Dad and Granddaddy shuffling cards and wondering how they did it. It was a wonderful magic trick! I still love playing Solitaire and have quite a collection of playing cards. I was excited to find these ads for Congress Playing Cards. I especially like the ones with pictures of the ladies on the back. I wish I could find a deck of cards like these.

I found these courtesy of Lucky Magazine and Williamsburg Marketplace. They are based on a deck printed circa 1765. I am seriously considering ordering a deck.
