Children’s Card Games (53)

April 5th, 2009 · 4 Comments


We’re up to #53.  If this were a deck of cards, it would be the joker.  Let’s mark the occasion, then, with a splendid joker from a souvenir deck of the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair.  It’s not really a children’s game, but I’m sure the whole family can enjoy this giant gorilla from a million years ago.

And here are a few scattered jokers as well, from unsung designers.

    It’s not very nice to put nose-pickers on your website, now is it?

    I’ve never seen such a dapper joker as the last one. I love his bouquet of hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs!

    The gorilla is fantastic.

    if he wasn’t a joker he wouldn’t need the flowers.

    I love the gorilla. I would be very startled to see that image come into my hand. Talk about “JOKER’S WILD”!!!!!!!
