Hamm’s Beer

Hamm’s Beer promotion deck with superb bear cartoons on the court cards and jokers drawn by Frank M. Antoncich (1906-1994), published by Stancraft in c.1968. If you look closely, each bear is dressed for a different sport, such as ice hockey, water skiing, basketball, croquet, baseball, golf, tennis, football, bowls, archery, etc. The ace of spades has the Hamm's logo and the backs show ‘the Land of Sky Blue Waters’ with a red canoe in the foreground, suggesting relaxation and refreshment which is also mentioned on the box.
