(1863), Advertisement for "Union Playing Cards" with Civil War Designs, Near Mint.

This advertisement for Union Playing Cards, manufactured by the American Card Company of New York, measuring 5.5" x 10," was clipped from the bottom of a newspaper or magazine page. A pencil notation in the lower left corner indicates that the date of the issue was August 15, 1863. The ad depicts four different designs used by American Card Company on the backs of its Union series of cards. The designs are labeled "Major of Eagles," "Colonel of Eagles," Goddess of Eagles," and "Ace of Eagles." The Colonel and Major designs both depict a generic Union Military Officer of the period. The sales pitch appears in small letters at the top: "Two Packs, in Splendid Cases, free by mail on receipt of $1." This great black and white print is in superb condition.
