Jacks or better to open

The 1955 Worldcon, held in Cleveland, commissioned artist Virgil Finlay to create an original drawing. They used this on a deck of playing cards which was available as a souvenir at the convention for $1.25 per deck. The deck was printed in an edition of only 250. Given the very limited number of decks, they’re very scarce, but one of them will be auctioned as part of the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.
