" Susie " Daily Mirror:

Original 1940's Mint Cards

You are bidding on two vintage, original  playing cards featuring " Susie " the little kitten in between two sleepy puppy dogs. Your bid is for TWO SINGLE CARDS, not two deck of cards. People call these single cards "swap cards" or "trading cards", and they are collected world-wide!  This charming image first appeared in the New York Daily Mirror Newspaper (William Randolph Hearst publication) circa 1940. The Daily Mirror was deluged with hundreds of requests from readers for a copy of this very charming photo. The Daily Mirror made arrangements with a New York art publisher to publish the print under the title " SUSIE ". The copyright on the print was " Daily Mirror, Inc. No. 23301. Published by Morris & Bendien, Inc. Litho in U.S.A. "  Tens of thousands of the "Susie" print were sold in the 1940's (framed & unframed). It was extremely popular and price was cheap. Due to the tremendous popularity of "Susie" as a print, the U.S. Playing Card Company of Cincinnati decide to issue Susie as a deck of playing cards.  The tiny copyright mark on the 2 cards that I am selling appears in the lower right hand corner of the card, " Daily Mirror, Inc. N.Y. ". These two playing cards are in absolutely mint, uncirculated CONDITION............. came from sealed decks, unopened in over 65 years.....please see my many detailed photos. Cards have never been played with.....never even shuffled. These playing cards are quite rare, especially in this fabulous mint condition. Both of these cards have the exact same "Susie" image, but one card has a red ribbon and border,  while the other card has a blue ribbon and border. Really great images for your playing card collection or miniature art collection.  Also included in this auction are the 2 rigid clear plastic card holders  ( please see photos ). These cards are in excellent, rare condition and I do absolutely guarantee that it is the original issue, and not new cards, reprints or recent reproductions.  The size of the cards is 2 and 1/4 inches by 3 and 1/2 inches each. A great small item for gift or stocking stuffer! Cards will be shipped in rigid plastic card holders. This allows viewing enjoyment of the cards without damaging them. First class U.S. Mail shipping is $3.00 with a delivery confirmation tracking number. I have other swap playing cards on Ebay. Check them out. Any additional playing cards bought within a 2 day time period will be free shipping. Please e-mail any questions. Thank you for stopping by. LOW STARTING BID AND NO RESERVE. International shipping is higher.
