Local Ohio Historical Society Puts Pickerington & Violet Township, OH on a Deck of Souvenir Playing Cards

January 06, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The Pickerington Violet Township Historical Society has introduced a deck of playing cards ($8) which highlights some of the historical past of Pickerington and Violet Township, OH. This Historical Society deck brings the collectible side of playing cards to a smaller, local, more personable level.

This Pickerington and Violet Township 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 more recent history. From historical buildings and events to historical figures and other photos that bring out the unique history of Pickerington and Violet Township, Ohio.

The face cards are designed the way "souvenir" playing cards used to be printed with round photos, historical facts and fun information on the faces. “Most souvenir playing cards today will have a unique photo on the back, but then have normal faces,” says playing card collector and Newt’s Playing Cards owner, James Esteph. “Using normal faces on the decks has become a cheap way for publishers to get around what used to be a wonderful collectible.”

This deck holds true to the historical side of “souvenir” playing cards by using 52 beautiful, Pickerington and Violet Township, OH photos and 2 unique aerial views.

The Pickerington Violet Township Historical Society wishes to preserve its past for future generations to see and use. This deck is part of the education and preservation of that history.

Established in 2000 as Newton’s Novelties, Newt’s began exclusively selling playing cards in 2002. Over the years NewtsCards.com has transformed into the playing card portal on the internet offering anything from card blogs, to a card search engine. It is the dream of Newt’s Playing Cards to bring back more of the historical look of souvenir playing cards.
