Playing Card Pack

The Playing Card Pack was released by King Features Syndicate in USA in 1968. The Playing Card Pack contains 2 full decks of playing cards, 54 cards per deck, a total of 108 playing cards. The pack was a free giveaway around Christmas time to business partners and agents of King Features Syndicate.

The brand we see on the playing cards is Arrco Playing Card Co, produced in Chicago, USA. The 2 decks are presented in a cardboard box measuring approximately 7.5″ x 5.5″, containing the King Features Syndicate logo on the lift off lid.

The Phantom is seen on the reverse side of the playing cards, amongst other comic characters, with a deck printed with a white outline and the second with a black outline, both containing a gold background. The decks issued in the Playing Card Pack were wrapped in clear plastic packaging.
