Superb set of the “Sports Junior Series” Patience cards with the lacrosse backs, first made by Union Playing Card Co. c.1900, and for a number of years after Union changed its name to Consolidated Litho and Mfg. Co. in 1911.
As per the box and the Ace of Spades, this deck was published after the name change and is dated c.1915.
The deck is complete with 52 suited cards, plus 1 iconic Joker depicting a hockey player. The backs of the deck show lacrosse players. The cards are standard patience size, measuring 6.4cm x 4.3cm, and come in the original box. The box is missing the top closure flap and is in worn condition.
The cards are in excellent used vintage condition with no bends or creases.
