A deck of playing cards featuring 52 different vintage Santa Claus images. High-quality printing and lamination. The images are reproduced from vintage, pre-WWI Santa postcards. During the Golden Era of Christmas Cards (1898-1918), those featuring Santa were by far the most popular. The rare examples contained herein utilized a resplendent, German printing technique known as chromolithography. Each season, both young and old, “oohed” and “ahhed” over the wintry holiday’s new and colorful offerings.
