Long before the advent of video games, the Nintendo Co. was known for producing playing cards. This traditional deck of cards, made by Nintendo, was most likely created in the 1970s. Each playing card has three logos on the back (New York Mets, National League & MLB).

The lot consists of an unused deck of cards in a plastic case. The case contains the Japanese text, "New York Mets", in raised plastic lettering. The words "ALL PLASTIC" and "Nintendo", in English, also appear on the case near the bottom and "New York Mets" appears in Japanese at the top. The deck is still sealed in its original plastic wrapper and includes the original Japanese government playing cards stamp.

Size: Regular playing card size

Condition: The playing cards are Mint in the original wrapper. The case contains numerous small scratches.
