Clemente Jacques' Naipe Fino El Fenix is one of several alternative names for the same pack. In it's earliest days it was titled Club (c.1900-20), then Casino (1920s), Minerva (1950s), El Fenix (c.1960-70s) and Valenciano. Normal sized and patience sized packs are known and in later editions the cardboard is very thin and translucent.

The manufacturer's address is given on the box as: Oriente 237 No.50, Mexico 9, D.F. This is not the usual address, which was usually F.C. de Cintura 1.
In 1970 the former Clemente Jacques y Cia, S.A. changed hands and was renamed Pasatiempos Gallo S.A. In 1990 it became Pasatiempos Gallo S.A. de C.V.
