Naipes Cassino de Don Clemente
Naipes Cassino de Don Clemente, Pasatiempos Gallo S.A., Querétaro, Mexico, c.1988
The Ace of Spades and one of the two Jokers gives the manufacturer's name and address as: Pasatiempos Gallo S.A., Apdo. postal 250, Querétaro, Mexico. The reverse features an advertisement for Polaroid copying.
Standard Anglo-American packs such as the example shown here were produced by Clemente Jacques y Cia since at the least the 1950s, often with pictorial back designs, and then by Pasatiempos Gallo S.A. since c.1975. Only slight design details have changed over the years on the Ace of Spades. The court card designs are loosely copied from those published by the U.S. Playing Card Co.
