Standard playing cards manufactured by Joker S.A.

Standard playing cards manufactured by JOKER S.A.I.C., Buenos Aires, c.1980-present.

Joker S.A.I.C. produce a wide range including children's card games, tarot cards and advertising decks, alongside their standard Spanish-suited and Anglo-American playing cards as shown on this page.

The first example (top row) shows the new 'Joker' logo on the box, but the cards themselves have the word 'Joker' only and the address is given as Tacauri 127. The type face for the indices is still the old one used by Cía Fabril Financiera. This would suggest a date of late 1970s. The second example is the same except the address is given as Chorroarín 1068 and the typeface for the indices has been changed, suggesting a date of c.1980.

On the other examples (second row), the 'Joker' logo also appears on the four of cups and jokers, and the address is Chorroarín 1068, as is the case today.  Next page…
