Playing playing cards

Airline playing playing cards on National Playing Card Collection Day

Courtesy SFO Museum

October 17 is National Playing Card Collection Day and we realize that many tourists have fond memories of the unfastened decks of playing playing cards some airways would hand out to passengers.

We discovered those photos of some of those decks within the remarkable, searchable on-line collection of the SFO Museum at San Fransisco International Airport (SFO).

Do you've got a deck of cards from an airline on your series? Please proportion a image and your recollections of having that souvenir.
