Frontiersmen of the Old West Playing Cards
This illustrated playing card deck is part of U.S. Games Systems’ popular "Old West" series of card games. This fact-filled deck features 13 different pioneers who personified the spirit and excitement of the Old West: Buffalo Bill Cody; Daniel Boones; Meriwether Lewis and William Clark; John Colter; Hugh Glass; Zebulon Pike; Joe Meek; Jim Beckwourth; Jim Bridger; John Fremont; Kit Carson; Fred Burnham; and Pawnee Bull.
For each Frontiersman, there are four cards (a book) with biographical information and historical facts. There are also instructions for playing an Authors-style card game, wherein players collect cards to complete four-card books by calling for cards from other players. The player with the most books wins. This 52-card deck is also suitable for many other traditional card games.
The bridge size playing cards are brand new and sealed in cello wrap but the outer box is not sealed and may show light wear.
