This was the deck that started the Pumpkin Show Playing Card & Real Souvenir Playing Card craze for us! To view more about other Pumpkin Show Playing Cards go here. To view more about Real Souvneir Playing Cards go here.
Take a step back into history with our latest deck of playing cards simply called, "Round Town." This Round Town deck of playing cards takes on the look of years gone by. Covering a span of over a hundred years, each card face highlights a photo ranging anywhere from the late 1800's to 2004. From ice storms, floods and other natural events to historical buildings, monuments and other photos that bring out the unique history of Circleville, Ohio.
Not only does the deck feature historical photos, but the face cards are designed the way "souvenir" playing cards used to be! With the round photos, historical facts and fun information the deck is designed to be what a deck of souvenir cards should be...a souvenir. It seems anymore when you find a deck of souvenir playing cards they will have a unique photo on the back, but then have normal faces. Using normal faces on the decks has become a cheap way for manufacturers to get around what used to be a wonderful collectible! This deck holds true to history with 52 beautiful photos and 2 unique historical maps.
The card back features original artwork from U.K. Playing Card Artist, Peter Wood. Holding to our motto of "Transforming the Playing Card Industry," the card back is made in the unique playing card art form we call "seek-n-find" art. This means that you can search for hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades hidden in the picture on the back of the cards. Of course what would a deck of Circleville Playing Cards be without something "pumpkin!?" That is why our scarecrow character is made with a Pumpkin head.
Casino style playing cards with a black-out center make this deck not only great for collecting, but great to play with.
We are currently selling Edition 1.0 that has a printing of 2000 decks. Get your deck early before they're gone! With over 400,000+ at the Pumpkin Show each year who knows how long they will last.

Playing Card Features
In the US the standard names for the size of decks would be "Bridge" or "Poker". Both of these decks can be used for most card games. The only real difference would be that the "Bridge" size decks are 1/4" narrower than "Poker". Otherwise they can be used for pretty much anything. Please read the description of this item for more information.
- Poker Size (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
This has to do with the actual size of a deck of cards, not really whether or not tradional games can be played with it or not. While here in the US we call most decks either "Poker" or "Bridge" size, most of the rest of the world would call them either "Wide" or "Narrow", respectivily.
Many times the "narrow" decks were intended for ladies or children because it was easier for them to handle. While the "narrow" are considered the standards size in most of the world, here in the US the "wide" are considered the standard size.
Please check actual description of the product to see if normal card games can be played with this particular product.
- Wide Format (2-1/2 x 3-1/2)
