Cutie ***ADULTS ONLY***

Also found in a Florida antique mall recently, this boxed set of 54 color Cutie picture playing cards of lovely ladies from all corners of the Earth in various states of dress, partial dress, and no dress! As you can see from the first image, the overall size of this set is incredibly teeny so I scanned the cards in groups of nine at 300 dpi. The very last image is the illustration featured on the back of every playing card. Made in Hong Kong, 1960's?

Nice cards. Nice blog.
My litlle niece loves your paper games (not these, the Halloween stuff).
I left a couple of comments on the "Terror blu" post, hope you'll find them useful.

I have this almost exact same card set, just in different packaging. They are very small, and I snuck ordered them out of a mail order catalog when I was 15 or so. You think the waiting for something you ordered when you were a kid was intense, think about ordering something you hoped that only YOU opened the package!

I still have them, to this day. A treasured heirloom as they say!

I'll have to pull it out and compare (sit down, peanut gallery) but I think the picture set is close but a couple cards are different. Probably culled from the same men's magazines of the 60s. I would have gotten mine in the late 70s, so they were still producing them. The poses and corset-style waists scream 60s men magazines.

Poker? I hardly know her.

But seriously, folks. This is a great post and kind of has my OCD buzzing like mad. I mean, I have no idea how you managed to avoid all the different ways you might have sorted these cards--by suit, by number, by hand or run, by hair color. You have crafted a mighty work of unnecessary randomness and I applaud you. I could have never done this post in this way.

Har! Well Mr C, I just pulled em all out of the box and plopped them on the scanner... if I over think it, it shows!

What's the word Brian, same set?

@ Mr. Cavin: "Poker? I hardly know her". APPLAUSE

@ Brian Barnes: Poker-faced, cool bloded kid...

Nope, my set is different. but probably about 10-20% of the cards are the same pictures, but different suits/values. Each of your random sets has about 2-3 cards that are the same. In your first set, I have the K of diamonds and the joker, but no others.
