Vintage Playing Cards And Game Cards

I have some great old cards. These art deco style ladies from the 30's are some of my favorites:
And I just LOVE this set of Old Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards!

These are from a great set with photos of the "Leading Moving Picture Stars"
The Donald Duck Game - don't know how to play that one! From maybe the 40's?, I think:
And these last ones aren't old - but they're cute. Old Maid and Donkey card games. I got these in my Christmas stocking a few years ago:
I think I'll have to photocopy some of the old ones ( in the first 4 pictures) to use in cards, scrapbooking or crafts, because I don't think I can bear to part with them!

Love the vintage playing cards and posted about them awhile ago as well. I also have a deck of fortune telling ones just like yours. I would recommend color copies...I use them alot, the color is great and you don't have to sacrifice your original cards!

Fun collection! They would definitely be neat to scan and use in paper crafts.
