A great vintage find on eBay today – a full brick of Bicycle Pinochle Decks! From the looks, they are from around the 1970s. I base this on the stamp type seal, the white tear strips and from the looks of it, the long flaps.
“Pinochle, also called pinocle or penuchle, is a trick-taking, Ace-Ten card game typically for two to four players and played with a 48-card deck. It is derived from the card game bezique; players score points by trick-taking and also by forming combinations of cards into melds. It is thus considered part of a “trick-and-meld” category which also includes the game, Belote. Each hand is played in three phases: bidding, melds, and tricks. The standard game today is called “partnership auction pinochle.”
Perhaps for the game, perhaps for practice or cardistry? Get these while you can and experience the playing card quality from the past!
