Find of the Century

The title of this post may be a *bit* dramatic, but for those of you who already know how obsessed I am with vintage playing cards... well, you'll understand.
~*~
While in Pennsylvania this past week, I had an opportunity to visit my two favorite antique malls.  I will share more of my finds later in the week, but this was one I just couldn't believe!
~*~
Check it out~ A deck of cards where ALL of the backs are different- made specifically for swappers and collectors like me, but back in the 50s.  Here is a shot of most of them:

Here are more- these are my second runner up favorites:
~*~
And here is my number one favorite card to date!

That bunny!  That color!  Those dots!

I am going to hope that you all like me too much to hate me about this, but I have to tell you the price.

Happy Father's Day to all of you papas out there.  I'll be celebrating with my dad and my hubby today at the Gettysburg "Beer, Blues, and Barbecue" festival.  Whoop, whoop!

OH MY GOODNESS JENNIE!!!
I don't believe it!!!
How gorgeous are these, and how lucky are you? :o)

I love 'em! And from enlarging the photos, I'm with you on your favourite, but I also love the swan one, and the pup carrying the slipper. But the bunny one's my favourite too :o)

Hope you have a fabby day with your family. Wish your Dad a good day from me too!
We're just off out now too!

Take care Jennie xxOOxx
