Bahamas Gemaco Casino Add to Collection

Pack manufactured by Gemaco Inc., Missouri specially for the Atlantis Paradise Island Hotel casino. The cards have been used in the casino and therefore a single hole has been punched through the whole pack to prevent cheating or re-use. Although undated, this pack was acquired in June 2018.

The court cards have what Gemaco describes as “Tech Art Faces” and along with the Tens of each suit, the Kings, Queens and Jacks have both a horizontal and the conventional vertical designation.

I graduated in Russian and East European Studies from Birmingham University in 1969. It was as an undergraduate in Moscow in 1968 that I stumbled upon my first 3 packs of “unusual” playing cards which fired my curiosity and thence my life-long interest. I began researching and collecting cards in the early 1970s, since when I’ve acquired over 3,330 packs of non-standard cards, mainly from North America, UK and Western Europe, and of course from Russia and the former communist countries.

Russian Playing Cards

Following my retirement from the Bodleian Library in Dec. 2007 I took up a new role as Head of Library Development at the International Network for the Availability of Scientific Publications (INASP) to support library development in low-income countries. This work necessitated regular training visits to many sub-Saharan African countries and also further afield, to Vietnam, Nepal and Bangladesh – all of which provided rich opportunities to further expand my playing card collection.

Since 2019 I’ve been working part-time in the Bodleian Library where I’ve been cataloguing the bequest of the late Donald Welsh, founder of the English Playing Card Society.
