Anonymous Mexican Playing Card Manufacturers
A number of anonymous manufacturers produce playing cards in or for Mexico, either as a one-off edition or during a limited time period. Details of the manufacturer are omitted from these cards, possibly as a precaution against copyright litigation in cases where the designs are not original. This page illustrates a number of such packs where no manufacturer's details are available. (Click images to see more cards)
