  • Pattern: Celebrating 50 years, Delta Airlines 1929 – 1979
  • Vintage: 1979
  • Details: Remember the days when airlines gave out playing cards to keep you entertained?  Well in 1978 airlines were deregulated and competition increased, as well as costs, so eventually they stopped giving out playing decks.  This deck was made by United States Playing Card Co for Delta Airlines, to commemorate their 50th anniversary and reads:  “Celebrating 50 years, Delta Airlines 1929- 1979”.  In 1929 you could fly on Delta to 4 cities at 90 miles an hour, sitting on wicker chairs with cotton stuffed in your ears, and you had to carry your own bag lunch (well maybe we’re back to that now), but by 1979 Delta flew to 90 different cities in the US plus a few International flights, at 600 mph, with a wonderful meal served to you.  This card deck came from a collector’s estate sale, it has never been opened, (we love the joker on this deck!).  The box retains the original USPCC blue seal, there is no outside plastic wrapper on the box.  Perfect for any playing card collector, a retired airline employee, someone who remembers the good old days of  flying, or for the pure pleasure of playing with vintage cards.
