This month I’m scanning favorites from my collection. By no means do I have the rarest cards, but still and yet, some of these are gems to me. Some decks I hope to share in their entirety. Others might just be some sample cards, due to transfered copyrights.

But in the meantime, boxes. Half the time I ogle these old boxes and labels as much, if not more, than the cards themselves. Here are my favorites.

"White Box C" Published by U.S. Games Systems, 1983.

Promotional pack for medicine company. 1920s.

ABOVE: Whitman’s “Old Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards” cards, 1940. This deck is one of the major influences of the Maybe Lenormand, especially the U.S. Games edition, where the box also served as muse.
