The international pattern- III- Ramblers ( USPCC)

In the third part of this series, We shall now investigate the cards as they are used in America.

"Ramblers No. 23"- (USPCC) 52c. + 2 jokers.
 The deck of cards here varies substantially from the Waddingtons deck ( see
I-  the cards use the wider, "poker"format ( 6.7 x 8.7 cm) , which is used by almost all the US card makers
II the designs are somewhat simpler than the waddingtons ones, but still use the same four colours.
III the indexes are in only 2 corners.
  It would be perhaps of interes to note that the courts used in this deck are identical to those used in the more famous "bicycle"decks.
