Aren't these vintage playing cards lovely? They were well played and have aged gorgeously! These cards would be great in your next scrapbook, mixed media or paper craft project!
This was part of a 2 deck set of cards in a glorious gold paper box, but this set wasn't complete - so now YOU can grab a few for your new creations! Made by Arrco playing card company out of Chicago, Illinois (became Arrow in the 1980s).
Each listing is for THREE random cards from this set. They all have about the same signs of wear and aging. Every now and then a card (maybe 10 out of 50 cards) has a slight curve (but no bend or crease) from storage, but they would easily flatten out in your project!
NOTE: I ship my playing cards in a stiff CD/DVD mailer, so shipping is a touch higher...but well worth it to keep your ephemera treasures safe during shipping! If you buy more than one set of 3 cards I can combine them and refund any shipping overage.
Additional Information about Ephemera Ever After cards and items:
I try to show any markings, creasing, tears or stains on my cards and items, but do not hesitate to contact me for a better description of any listing. These are mostly vintage cards, many stored for a very long time. In listings where you do not see the back or the inside of the card, do not assume it is 100% perfect. Most are in great shape, but a back might have an old elastic stain or a stray bit of old tape. There may be other small age marks/stains on a few, but not detracting from the images. Those imperfections are not common in my inventory, but you should expect that is possible with old paper and stationery from personal collections. I look for and find great items, and I try to represent their flaws well. I CAN PROVIDE ADDITIONAL PICTURES OF ANY ITEMS. Just ask! :)
Please see my Shipping Policies for any questions about how I package my items. Please contact me to discuss shipping to countries other than the US! :)

Shipping & policies
I use Etsy's calculated shipping for the U.S. (all my items) and select countries (some items - not those in bubble mailers, only those in boxes). Contact me to discuss shipping to other countries I have not selected.
I will combine items for reduced shipping rates when possible.
When my calculated shipping is more than $1.50 over my actual cost to package and ship, I will refund the difference back through Etsy.
I take GREAT CARE in packaging up my treasures to send to my buyers. I use recycled packing materials, and try to ship as cheaply as possible, but some items can be very heavy!
I ship using the U.S. Postal Service. It benefits both of us: I get a reliable shipping partner who will handle my item and save me the hassle of complicated mailing, and you know that your items should arrive in good condition. Plus, you get tracking! :)
Here are some general ways that I pack my items:
My greeting cards, paper items, and some thin books are mailed carefully and packaged with care in a padded envelope.
My larger items and bigger books are usually sent packed in boxes, again using recycled materials and fill.
I prefer to do all transactions through Paypal or Etsy Direct Checkout. I do accept Etsy gift cards, and you can use all major credit cards through Paypal and Etsy.
Returns & exchanges
You are also responsible for providing a valid address for me to ship to. I can not be responsible for incorrect addresses. If an item is damaged, I would expect the buyer to work with the shipper (USPS) to resolve the issue.
My Vintage Cards and other vintage items are photographed and described in the best detail that I can so that you know upfront about any flaws, markings or defects with the items. Please read each lot description carefully.
Non-smoking home. :)
