Airline playing Cards

Airline playing cards on National Playing Card Collection Day

Courtesy SFO Museum

October 17 is National Playing Card Collection Day and we know that many vacationers have fond reminiscences of the loose decks of gambling playing cards some airlines could hand out to passengers.

We determined those snap shots of a number of the ones decks inside the fantastic, searchable on-line series of the SFO Museum at San Fransisco International Airport (SFO).

Do you have a deck of cards from an airline to your collection? Please share a photograph and your memories of having that souvenir.
