The idea became popular at the beginning of the 19th century as a pastime, when packs were often'transformed' by hand using pen and ink. 19th century hand-drawn artisan packs are now extremely scarce... Some of them contain racial caricatures or stereotypes which might be incorrect today, showing how social attitudes have changed since then.
This rare example is in amazing condition! Hand drawn and designed with the best of hand, this scarce single card will be treasured and will add to anyone's serious collection! The Going to Court card is rich in history and is beautifully protected in a 1/2 lucite screwdown case for your personal display.
The overall condition is clean, very slight glue residue on the plain back far corners as this was stored on a page in a book. Typical 19th century style of collecting. Your historic cards will be delivered in an archival case.

There is the excitement of the hunt for new decks, whether through collectors' meetings, internet auctions or at shows and flea markets where every new table may unfold the unexpected treasure. Even better, there is the enjoyment of fellow collectors, some of the most interesting people in the world!
Playing cards have been around a thousand years or more and are infinite in their variety. The Price Guide for Collectible Playing Cards is intended to be a basic resource for collectors of playing cards and decks of playing cards and to give at least some idea of what different decks of cards may be worth among other collectors. Some advice for both buyers and sellers. And if you do, it will probably be for more. The prices of standard decks are more difficult to estimate than those established for popular categories such as transformation and insert cards, souvenir and railway cards and advertising decks.Non-standard decks usually have beautiful and/or interesting courts, can be of historical significance and often appeal to more than one group of collectors. We believe that values for good decks will only rise.
Scarce items only become scarcer, and as more people realize the joy of collecting playing cards and become serious collectors, the demand for old and scarce decks, especially ones in excellent or better condition, will continue to grow and drive prices upward!
