|This colorful deck of playing cards has
the A.C.C. designation R778-1. Burdick noted in his American Card
Catalog that these were Printed in Holland for the U.S. & Canada and
referred to the cards blue backs.
Beautiful color playing cards from Holland in the 1950's.
I've been told that they were issued in 1959. Each card measures
approximately 2-1/4" X 3-1/2 with beveled edges, a glossy picture side and
a back that is rough, almost tacky, without gloss. Printed at the
bottom of the back of each card is "Printed in Holland." There are
two Jokers (Eddie Constantine) in the deck.
Below is a chart displaying everyone who is in this
deck. Below the chart are images of nine more cards.
