Vintage African Heritage Cards

Vintage African Heritage Cards

from 10.00

These original decks of fine art playing cards were created in the early 1970s when African Americans expressed a need to embrace their African heritage. They are now collectors’ items. These high quality playing cards were printed by the United States Playing Card Company in Cincinnati, Ohio, the makers of the renowned Bicycle brand playing cards.

In 1972, I moved into my art studio for 10 days, with the blessing of my husband, so that I could hand paint the face cards for my African Heritage playing cards. In 1974, they were printed by the United States Playing Card Company in Cincinnati, OH. The limited number of decks remaining are a part of that initial printing. Own a part of history today!
