A New Bridge Deck


An ad from The Pittsburgh Press newspaper on this day in 1938:

Orders taken now for the new Five-Suit Bridge Deck

2 decks, $3

A LIMITED QUANTITY TO ARRIVE NEXT WEEK on the QUEEN MARY!

All America will be playing the new bridge game with the "Royals" - the new extra suit with the green crown symbol. There are 65 cards in the new deck - each player is dealt 16 cards instead of 13! The quantity will be limited, so order yours today to avoid disappointment.
